Tuesday Treasures: A New (and Cheap!) Liquid Eyeliner Discovery

fine_line

My friend and I were at a makeup store (that shall remain nameless to protect the innocent) over the weekend and noticed the cashier’s eye makeup. I loved the way she did it and asked her what type of eyeliner she used. She told me it was “Black Radiance,” a brand I’d never heard of before. She also said she got it from CVS (obvi, not the store we were in). My friend and I were both very enthralled at the perfection of her application. She went on to tell us that it took lots of practice, but she can now do a cat eye in 2 seconds.

She also stated that in regards to mascara and eyeliner, she didn’t feel the difference between expensive and inexpensive brands and it was all about the application. I have to admit, I did try a cheaper eyeliner once (I will not call out the brand, but it cost me $1 or $2). I wasn’t totally impressed, but for the money, I felt it was worth it. I’ve never purchased it again. However, I am going to check out this Black Radiance liquid liner. I could do a whole lotta practicing for the price ($2.99!).

Do you have a preference as far as buying designer or drugstore makeup? Have you noticed differences amongst products?
