Hey everyone, remember me? I haven't written in a long while and I missed blogging and you all SO much! *Hugs monitor*
Well, I'm definitely back to my normal blogging schedule from today considering my last photo shoot was yesterday and I have just a week left for my makeup classes to end! I can't believe it's been two months already. D:
My last photo shoot was so much fun! I did a runway look based on Roy Lichtenstein's "dotty" pop art. And the same day that I had my shoot, the Maybelline's Hyper Glossy Runway Pop Liquid Liner (phew) was delivered to me. ^_^
Considering I was still in a pop art daze, I went crazy with the liner right away! The colour especially was amazing, a colour I have never seen on a liner, ORANGE!! Orange eyeliner! Oh yeah!!
I fell in love with the shade as soon as I saw it. It's called Tangerine Orange. Maybelline, kudos to you!
No idea, they didn't send it to me in the PR but the normal black one is around Rs.225. (Hope this won't be more! *fingers crossed*)
The packaging is exactly like the original black Hyper Glossy liner. A sleek and black body with a long handle for added control, the lettering is in the colour of the product inside, so Tangerine Orange obviously has bright orange print.
The handle also has POP written on it and the brush is a normal bristle brush rather than felt tip, which I prefer to use. ^_^
These liners come in three trendy colours, Electric Teal (don't you just love that name?), Khaki and Tangerine Orange.
Tangerine Orange is a bright orange, almost neon! It has a small amount of gold shimmer in it which doesn't really distract from the colour, rather it catches the light and adds more dimension to the orange.
This liner is really opaque, no layering required. I could even use it on black but it would still look vivid and bright!
Once applied, this liner will not budge till you remove it with makeup remover. I know for a fact that the Hyper Glossy black wasn't water proof, which is why I didn't buy it, this one on the other hand is water proof as well as smudge proof. I like it when my liners come with insurance. ;)
Another thing I was worried about was flaking, a lot of glossy liquid liners tend to flake on me but this one didn't! Whoopdidoo! >w<
I tried using this liner in every way possible solely because I was fascinated by the colour.
I used Sleek's Acid palette for the eye shadow and added black gel liner. I went over the black with Tangerine Orange, leaving some space on the edges to make it stand out more. I just popped on a dramatic pair of lashes for finishing touches. ^_^
This look was inspired by Illamasqua's speckled liner look for their Imperfaction collection. I used black liquid liner as a base and dotted on the Tangerine Orange and black till I had a nice stippled effect.
I also used the liner on my lower lashes as mascara to see whether it would show up and it did!
You can use this liner as coloured mascara too! :D
Maybelline has really made a winning product and I want to try all three. I wish they had more colours, like white, purple, yellow!
I recommend that everyone try these liners for a fun "runway worthy" look! Of course not everyone loves orange, you can play it safe but stylish with teal and khaki too! ^_^
I'm really glad I got to try this liner! I have only one question now...
Does it glow in the dark? :D
What do you think of the new Hyper Glossy liners? Would you wear orange liner?
Let me know in the comments! I promise I'll reply. :) I feel bad not having replied to so many. I'm very sorry, I was just so busy! I will go through them all though. >.<
Thanks for reading!
