my lil cousin swears by the Revlon ColorStay eyeliner so i decided to give it a try -- and boy am i glad i did! i did an eye-by-eye test w/ Revlon on my left eye and Make Up For Ever on the right, and i have to say they are pretty equivalent. i am currently on day #2 of testing, and today, Revlon is winning. i haven't done a water test however...
i usually don't try out a lot of drugstore brands because i can't just buy them and return them like i do department store brands, but i think i will venture out a bit more now. i now have a new
HG liner for less than half the price!
i bought mine at Rite Aid for ~$7 something, and i got a second one for half off. i bought #201 (black) and #202 (black brown -- for the more natural look).
**edit 2/16/10 - wore this w/ only setting it lightly w/ powder, and boy, did i turn into a panda! MUFE is a little more forgiving when you don't set completely. this drops Revlon a star. sorry cuz!**
Price: $5.99 - $7.39
Where to Buy: amazon.com, drugstore.com, rite aid, cvs, walgreens, etc.
Overall Rating: 3.75/5 stars
Tip: always remember to set the liner w/ powder after application (this goes for ALL eyeliners). sometimes, i'm lazy and i end up w/ semi-panda eyes even w/ the best eyeliners.
