Created with a slanted tip, the idea is that you can hold the liner horizontally up against your lashes and then tightline, creating the look of more lush lashes. The only problem is that the liner just isn’t thin enough and if you’re not careful, you can end up with a thick line that looks very obvious instead of a nice thin line usually achieved by using liquid liner. … and as full disclosure, I have to say that I wear liquid or gel eyeliner almost every.single.day and so the effect I get with that is unmatched by this liner.
This being Dior, the liner works great as a pencil because the formula is unparalleled. It’s waterproof, smudgy but long-wearing which is particularly perfect for achieving a worn-in eyeliner look. Simply apply to the top or bottom lashes, smudge gently with your fingers and then be on your way. The liner will stay the whole day, and needs serious make-up remover to come off. Personally, I don’t scrub at it too hard because I like the look of it the next day.
If you must do a wing tip, simply line your lashes with the liner, grab your eyeliner brush and go over your line, continuing to make a flick with the excess product. Because the liner is so smudgy, you’ll have enough on your brush to do this once you’ve gone over your line.
Pick it up at Sephora or a Dior counter for $32. Definitely one to try before you buy – ask a Dior sales associate for a demo.
