Today I’ll be reviewing COVERGIRL Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in BROWN BLAZE. The pencils are available in six shades:

Directions: Starting at the inner corner, make small lines along the upper lash line close to the roots. Use the patent-pending tip to smudge the line near the lashes if desired. Place cap tightly on product after use.
The Liner comes with a smudger attached at the other end which I thought looks like an eraser.
My take on the product: The application was very easy. I usually start from the mid to the end and then form the inner corner. That is because Im not perfect in applying liners as well as some girls and so all the heavy thick line is in the outer part and then the thin line comes in the inner corner 🙂
It comes out as a soft creamy brown more like a chocolate-y shade. Nice brown, not too dark and not too light. Also,its Easy to apply,Not hard, a nice soft point. You do need a makeup remover cause soap and water won’t touch it as I found out the hard way 🙂
The one thing I liked about it is that when smudged with a smudger it didnt fade the liner like some pencils it just spread it a little. just like a cream liner. Also, It dries up quickly so we have to smudge it within seconds of applying and it stays put for hours.
Im planning a cool smokey eye with this 😉
Now the Pros and cons:)
– Blends Easily
– Easy To Apply
– Bold Color, Doesn’t Run
– Easy Removal
– Glides On Smoothly
– Since the pencil is very soft, you’ll need to sharpen it every few days, depending on your manner of usage. Also, since it is so soft, put it in your freezer for a bit to harden it and make it easier to sharpen. Works like a charm! Got that tip from the Cover Girl website.
– Fades Throughout the Day
It retails for about 7-9$ and My next is going to be the blue one coz it looks so angelic 🙂 I had tested swatches of urban decay 24/7 liners and this seems to be a perfect dupe for them. and that too at half the cost 😀
