Hope everyone is enjoying the new year! Time to remember to change the year when writing the date down.. this will take me some time to do instinctively =_=ll
So let us start the new year with a recent purchase going towards perfecting the natural make look! I got my hands on a wonderful gel eyeliner at Sasa.com!
B & C MAKEMANIA DATA
24H Waterproof Pencil Gel Eyeliner
in Deep Brown
What wonderful packaging! I admit, the packaging caught my eye when browsing through many Japanese makeups! However, I made sure to check reviews on the product before purchasing! Packaging alone cannot persuade me!
After reading up thoroughly, I realized there were not that many reviews on this item. It is definitely not like Dolly Wink or Eyemazing, so I figured to add on my 2cents on this!
I love Love LOVE brown eyeliners. I use to swear by black, but for everyday wear, I have transitioned quite some time ago to browns and neutrals. For quick on-the-go eyemake, I just tightline and wing it out a little, curl lashes, put on mascara, and run off to my day!
Taking the product out of packaging and uncapping it, my first impression was, "What nice color!" Really, this is the perfect brown color to use in day and night occasions! The color reminded me of dark/medium roast coffee beans, something like a brown-black. When I swiped the product, I was happy with the creaminess! I had invested in an Urban Decay 24/7 "waterproof" gel eyeliner, and the texture was too creamy, giving me panda eyes and smudging off slowly throughout the day. This liner is something between a generic kohl pencil and a really creamy one, so I feel safe that it would stay on longer throughout the day.
To test this eyeliner out, I swatched it on the top of my left hand.
Then I ran it under warm water.
Then I tried rubbing it under warm running water.
Then I tried rubbing it under warm running water with soap.
I rubbed harder and FINALLY got it all off. See the redness?
It took some thorough effort to get the eyeliner off. Not a difficult task (use a lot of soap or an oil-based remover), but it took a good rubbing.

Then I snapped out of it.
Tightlined and ready! (natural right?!)
What eyeliners would you recommend?
