Cover Girl welcomed a new addition to its “Blast” family recently with the Cover Girl Liquiline Blast Eyeliner. It offers the intensity of a liquid liner and the easy application of a pencil. It’s an incredibly creamy liner and undeniably similar (in theory) to Urban Decay’s 24/7 liners. I picked up the shade Blue Bloom – a shockingly bright blue – on a whim. The verdict? I’m pretty pleased. This is a great liner for the price.
Liquiline Blast applies like a dream. I’ve been using it on my lower lash line for a pop of color and it doesn’t smudge a bit (unless you want it to). But…there’s a but. I think the intensity of the color wears off throughout the day. The good news is it definitely doesn’t bleed onto the skin, but if you’re looking for 7-10 hour intensity you’re not going to get it unless you reapply. But the no color bleeding is a perk! In fact, after I removed my makeup at the end of the day and washed my face, I had to go back to the undereye area with a qtip soaked in eye makeup remover! Plus, the smudger on the end of the liner is pretty cool. It’s a smooth, rubber-like texture and makes for a good smudger before the liner sets.
Overall, these may not be for everyone, but if you’re shy to colors these are a great, budget-friendly option.
