Oh yes, today’s post picture is indeed a GIF (I’m not sure if you’ll have to actually go to my blog for the GIF to actually work). I know the blog post isn’t actually about GIFs but hey, I’m pretty proud of myself.
Following Tuesday’s “The Beauty Bucket List” post, I thought I’d get the ball rolling by jumping right in and ticking one of my tasks straight off the list: working with eyeliner.
Saying I haven’t worn eyeliner before would be a lie; I think I’ve worn it once on a Saturday when I was just having a bit of fun with makeup, and then once again for a Saturday out into town to see how well the eyeliner wore. Even so, I think it’s pretty safe to say that today I’m going to be telling you the story of my first step into the world of eyeliners and the eyeliner that helped me start that very journey.
The eyeliner in question is the Soap & Glory Smoulder Kohl eyeliner in Super Black which is Soap & Glory’s most affordable eyeliner. After having tried the Soap & Glory Thick & Fast mascara and having deemed it my least favourite mascara of recent times, I thought I would give Soap & Glory eye makeup another chance at wowing me, and I guess this product did in a way.
I wouldn’t say that this eyeliner has made me fall in love with kohl eyeliner pencils because quite frankly, it hasn’t. Compared to the past two eyeliners I’ve used (a Rimmel kohl eyeliner and a L’Oreal liquid liner I believe), it wasn’t the most outstanding liner I’ve tried. The liner wasn’t necessarily bad, it just wasn’t necessarily good; nothing about the liner made me feel all to fantastic apart from the finished product when I’d finished applying it, which is the look you would get with any for of kohl pencil in your waterlines.
Regardless, this liner has indeed set me on a new want to work with eyeliner again very, very soon (the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, anyone?)
That’s one thing off the Beauty Bucket List done; seven more to go…
