NARS 'Stylo' Liquid Eyeliner
I've tried many types of liquid liner and they usually flake or won't draw on my eyes. I have trouble with getting the pen type liners to go on over my eyeshadow and the brush type builds up too thick and flakes off. This one really does the trick! Give it a little shake and the tip gets wet again so you don't have too much product to work with. I've never had a flake. But get your eye makeup remover out, ladies. This stuff's not coming off without it. Another plus!
good intro to liquid liner
I wanted a liquid liner that is newbie friendly and got this based on other positive reviews. I liked it because it offered some control and it didn't irritate my eye when applying. But it did tend to smudge after several hours. I'm ok with it but have now found a liner I love (YSL Moire) but I appreciate this Nars for helping me overcome my fear of liquid liners.
The first time I bought liquid liner was a NIGHTMARE! The color was weak... it kept flaking... and dried out after only two uses (which when used felt like I was trying to rip my eyelid off). Alas I thought all hope was lost...
But thanks to Nars Stylo (Carpates) my faith in liquid liners has been restored. I love how dark the color is. It glides on easily and is long lasting. I did notice however that when my face was oily there was a little bit of smudging but I believe its nothing a little primer can't fix. You need to adjust to the longer tip but cat eyes become easy after a couple uses. I'm currently looking for the best eyeliner (for myself) and this has been my favorite so far!
Glad I gave this another try
I had just about given up on a liquid liner. I did not have much success with this liner the first time I tried it. As it turned out, the problem was not with the product, but with my technique. I was using it with the applicator parallel to my lashes, as opposed to using it like a pen tip to draw the line like I wanted. I work with short strokes across the eye and then go over it with longer strokes to finish and smooth out. I love how precise I can get with this applicator and especially with a 5x magnification mirror. I can do a fine line or a bold look. Stays put all day. I also learned how to deliver more product to the applicator, which at first no one explained to me.
