This is a guest review of a favorite product from Dee, CoverGirl Perfect Point Liner. Thanks Dee for the great post!
When we were twelve years old, my friends and I went to the mall and got our first professional makeovers. I can still remember it. We were new to the experience, but we were savvy enough to realize that we were expected to buy something at the end. As a young teenager, all I had to spend was a little bit of babysitting money, so I bought the cheapest makeup the lady had used: the eyeliner.
I loved the way eyeliner looked then, and I still love it now. In fact, the makeup that I wear to work consists of only three things: eyeliner, clear mascara and lipstick. I’m an olive skinned brunette with bold features and clear skin, so I’ve never felt the need to wear more than that. In fact, if I was only going to wear one thing, it would be the eyeliner. It makes my face looks more vivid; more finished.
The eyeliner that I bought from the makeover lady all those years ago was a pencil that needed to be sharpened. That type of eyeliner is difficult to keep neat. The color in the middle is either so soft it won’t sharpen properly or so hard it won’t make a clear mark. It’s difficult to sharpen them evenly, and nobody wants to scrape their eyelid with a sharp piece of wood. For that reason, I’ve got a strong preference for mechanical eyeliner pencils. You just twist out a little more of the colored tip when they start to run low.
Since eyeliner is one of the few types of makeup I wear regularly, I’ve tried a lot of brands. I feel confident in saying that CoverGirl Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner is the best inexpensive product out there, and it’s better than the expensive ones I’ve tried, too. The tip almost never breaks, and it makes a strong, even line. They’re equipped with covered smudging sponges on the back end, for a more romantic look. The covers on both the tip and the sponge stay put, even in my purse. These pencils last for a long time. In fact, the brand name has worn off the one I’m using now, and I had to look it up.
I’ll go out of my way for these pencils. I’ve moved to the U.K. now, and I haven’t been able to find them in the stores here, so I order them from the U.S.
CoverGirl Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner: highly recommended.
