The Revlon ColorStay Liquid Liner is a product I’ve seen on the Revlon stand many times, but it’s not something I’ve ever picked up or swatched as it just didn’t stand out to me. I’m a real eyeliner fiend so I don’t know why I haven’t ever wanted to try it, but I guess inkwell eyeliners just haven’t been my favourite type of eyeliner. The Revlon ColorStay Liquid Liner is available in just two shades; Black Brown and Blackest Black, and is £7.99.
“The 0.1 mm applicator tip of ColorStay Skinny Liquid Liner provides mistake-proof control allowing you to apply bold, even colour. One intensely pigmented shade enhances eyes with sleek, precise lines for a look that lasts all day. Using soft strokes, apply liner close to the base of the lashes at the inner corner of the eye. Move along the lash line, ending with a slight feline flick upwards at the outer corner.“
The Revlon ColorStay Liquid Liner has a small ball bearing which you really need to shake before use or you’ll end up with a very watery consistency to your liner. The applicator is within the lid and is easy to control thanks to the tapering of the handle on the lid.
The actual applicator is a very flexible, small and precise foam spike which does allow for very precise and controlled lines when using light pressure, but more intense and thicker lines can be created by adding a little more pressure. It really is a super intense, matte black but I do find that it does skip a little when trying to line my eyes in just one swipe. I get much better results when doing my line in 2-3 short strokes.
I feel like the valve within the top of the inkwell removes a little too much excess product as I would prefer the applicator to be a little more ‘wet’ but it does stop the applicator from becoming overloaded. I think the shape, size and flexibility of the applicator is great for doing wings but it does take a little practice but it’s worth persevering as the liner stays all day even with my watery eyes. Admittedly it’s not the best drugstore eyeliner I’ve tried, but it’s certainly not the worst and it is something I’d consider repurchasing as I like how intense and matte it is.
I’d love to know if you’ve ever tried the Revlon ColorStay Liquid Liner?
