Stargazer Liquid Eyeliners

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 30 - 2010

Stargazer are a budget brand that I’ve had some real success with in the past… infact, one of the first things I ever reviewed was a Stargazer cake eyeliner that I still enjoy using to this day.

I received a couple of their liquid eye liners to have a play with and initially… I was mega OVERLY excited.

Look! I thought they were gonna be huge chunky felt tip type liquid eye liners.  The idea really appealed to me in theory (in reality of course, great big sharpie-type liquid eyeliners would ensure I made even more of a mess than I usually do).

Anyway… this is how they look:

The ‘nib’ is a flexible nylony bristle type affair.  It holds together well and doesn’t splay or flop about during application.

It produces a substantially pigmented black line that’s thin enough to tightly line the lashline.  The above photo shows the line after I’d built it up to get the kinda thickness that I usually like.

I received two shades, black and blue.  Both are true to description… the black is pure with no charcoal ashiness.  The above swatch shows one swipe from each shade.  Impressive huh?  My only negative is that drying time was a little slower than I’m used to thanks to a wetter formula.  I’d estimate that it took around a minute before I felt comfortable enough to let my (hooded eyelid) droop back over my lashline.  However, once set… this stuff isn’t budging or transferring ’til makeup removal time.  It doesn’t flake and it doesn’t fade.  Phenomenal.

If you’re looking for a purse-friendly “does what it says on the tin” liquid eyeliner… I’d wholeheartedly recommend these from the Stargazer range.  They do a host of shades and I’m gonna check out the violet and red (though I could probably use an intervention… I’m not gonna use a freakin’ red eyeliner am I?).

You can buy Stargazer’s Liquid Eyeliners online or from New Look at the ridiculously good price of £3 each.

    You won’t use a red, no, but it would be SO cool to see you wearing it on here 😀
    I think I need to start wearing liquid eyeliner more, as I ALWAYS get transfer onto my socket line from eye pencils (I actually think I’ve got a similar eye shape to you), even Urban Decay 24/7 when wearing primer…the only reason I don’t is because I can never find liquid liners in the colours I like (read: UD Stash)…I may have to check out this range, especially as it is so cheap!

    I have a couple of these in pink and white and i think they are pretty good, but i bought them years ago and i think these ones look even better! Maybe they redid the formula :)

  4. sarah says:

    wow these look really good, will definitely check them out

    Ooo thanks for the link: they’ve got it in white (yay), now we are talking. i cant agree with that brush though and would plonk in a 2true brush from superdrug in it. I wonder what the pink looks like.
    don’t look at the red liner as just an eyeliner. a red would be good for face painting, little accents of colour, and stuff like that. xx

    wow I love the look of the blue 😀

    The blue is striking, liking the tip of the brush. I know what you mean about worrying about transfer. Just did the makeup of a friend’s sister for a local religious procession/parade and the cream gel eyeliner I put on her Oriental eyes transfered on top waaah! Twas scorching heat…

  8. Dani says:

    I have these in neon pink and turquoise and they’re amazing, they really don’t budge or fade, although application is tricky, it is true…the black looks good too so I may have to pick that up!

  9. @liloo – yeah… ‘cos I’m always painting up my face me!

  10. Dude, you look especially gorgeous in the full face shots! And the blue looks AWESOME 😀 so bright
