I have been on a liquid liner kick lately, wearing minimal eyeshadow and winged liner has been my go-to for the last couple of weeks. I really like my L'Oreal Carbon Black Lineur Intense felt-tip liner in that it provides a nice rich black and its pretty easy to apply. But as any good makeup junkie knows, the hunt is always on for the next best thing. Well, I certainly did NOT find the next best thing in the Revlon Colorstay Liner Pen. I was so disappointed with this product. I don't know if I got a dried up one or what but the color was barely a charcoal grey let alone BLACKEST black. I mean, really, blackest black? It would have been a stretch even calling it black. It applied very poorly over eyeshadow and I could not get a good black line for the life of me. Even if I did get a "bad one", its not like I'm going to waste another $10 to find out if that was the case. Moving on...
Jordana Fabu-liner is fabu-lous. For $1.99 at your local Walgreens, you will not replicate the disappointment I suffered on behalf of the Revlon Colorstay liner pen. For one, it comes out black which I didn't think would be such a luxury until I tried the Revlon pen. Second, the point at the tip isn't so pointy that it will actually stab you or pierce the skin when you are trying to draw a wing (ahem, Smashbox liner pen = dangerous). The Jordana gem is easy to work with and it doesn't flake off by mid-day. I am impressed with this cheap little find, so much so that I have added it to the current rotation.
