On a recent drugstore trip to CVS, I discovered one of THE easiest and best ways to get a goof-proof, smoky eye look.
L'Oreal Paris Infallible Never Fail Smokissime Powder Eyeliner Pen is simply brilliant. It's actually a creamy powder in a pen. There's NO fallout like with eye shadow and it's glides along the eye like a dream with no tugging or pulling. I was able to get away with almost no blending with fingers/brush or anything.
The pen design is also unique. The top is actually a screw on. This reveals the large sponge tip applicator which is where the powder is actually housed I used the wide, pointed tip to line my upper and lower lash lines. I loved that I could vary the width by putting it along the side, or by using the tip only. The texture of the powder was so creamy and smooth I could not believe it!
Instantly I got a soft, powdery black color that looked as if I had already smudged/blended eye shadow around my eyes. Yes, this little miracle does ALL the work for you. (Note: This eyeliner is not meant to create a standard thin line).
The finish has just a touch of sheen/satin- effect, but there's no glitter or shimmer. I usually grabbed the Black Smoke (shown, above) for day to day looks, but when I wanted to mix it up or have a softer eye I LOVED the 702 Brown Smoke and 703 Taupe Smoke (tiny bit of shimmer in this one). P.S. There's also a 704 Purple Smoke.
The great thing about the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Never Fail Smokissime Powder Eyeliner Pen, is that this can also be used as an over-all shadow, blending it with an eye shadow brush into the outer corners, in conjunction with a pencil or liquid eyeliner, or layered under powder shadow for a deeper and more dramatic smoky eye.
If you love a smoky eye, but don't have the time, skill or patience to play with powder shadows and brushes, these Powder Eyeliner Pens should be a permanent fixture in your makeup kit - STAT! - RLB
