An Oldie But A Goodie | Rimmel Glam'Eyes Liquid Eyeliner

This little gem of an eyeliner has somehow managed to go relatively undetected on the blogging radar. I've seen lots of talk about the new Bourjois Mega Liner, and the L'oreal Superliners in Perfect Slim and Blackbuster also got many a compliment when they launched. But for me, the Rimmel Glam'Eyes Liquid Eyeliner is the one that I keep coming back to, time and time again.

For starters, this bad boy is black. And I mean, black. A lot of felt-tip eyeliners I have tried end up looking a bit grey or blue if you don't do more than one coat, which isn't ideal when you're aiming for a classic feline flick. It also doesn't transfer onto the upper eyelid, something that I've definitely had trouble with when using the L'oreal Perfect Slim liner. Although the teeny tiny brush might not be suited to everyone's tastes (especially if you're just starting out in the world of liquid liner), I actually find it far easier to use than the alternatives. Pencil, gel or felt-tip liners tend to tug on my eyelids, leaving more of a zig-zag than a smooth line. Not a zig-zag in sight with Glam'Eyes though! The thin, liquid formula and skinny brush glide over the eyelid like a dream, rather than tugging on the skin and leaving a wobbly mess. The formula also works excellently over the top of eyeshadows, where felt-tips often get clogged and ruined. The lasting power is impressive too - in fact I've woken up after a night out with my eyeliner still very much in tact!

I can understand why a lot of people won't get on with this product. The brush can be a little fiddly if you're not used to it, and the formula isn't as forgiving as a gel liner. For me though, nothing beats this if you're after a classic flick. Not to mention that it's only £5.29!

What's your favourite liner?
