In this set you get 5 eyeliners: a staple black called ‘stingray’; a shimmery brown called ‘lionfish’; a shiny burgundy called ‘aubergine’; a navy blue imaginatively called ‘navy’ and a garish green called ’emerald’. They are all full-size eyeliners with 0.28g of product in them.
A few positives to start:
The black shade is gorgeous, creamy and matte which is perfect. It’s exactly what I’d look for in a black eyeliner and it does not budge. I could (and do, often) cry my eyes out and it would stay. I showered with a swatch on my hand and the black is the only one that stayed. Amazing. This eyeliner passes the Marley & Me test.
The consistency of the navy and aubergine eyeliners is lovely. While they’re not colours I’d use everyday I can see myself getting use out of them. Emerald has a nice texture but it’s just a little garish for me right now. They do stay on all day, but slip if I cry or rub my eyes. They didn’t last the shower test but preform moderately in the Marley & Me test.
The value for money is insanely good. I urge you to check out BeautyBay’s Outlet to see if you can get your paws on one.
The brown is awful and I’m sad. Maybe I got a dud? Who knows? All I know is that it’s crap. The texture is scratchy, the nib doesn’t twist up, the colour is patchy so much so that you can’t get one straight line complete, you have to go over it. It’s unpleasant to put in your waterline and honestly, I hate it. Avoid Lionfish. Fail.
If you’re looking to buy individual liners, I’d recommend Stingray highly. The others are okay but I think there’s better out there. Rimmel do better colours and they’re a fraction of the price. Stingray, however, is amazing. I would recommend 100%.
