Smooth as silk -> Revlon’s Luscious Lashliner

If you are familiar with Thai Airways, “Smooth as silk” is the tagline of this airline.

But we are not going to talk about airlines here. Maybe some other times.

I have here super smooth eyeliners from Revlon. Currently there are only 3 colours available in Boots Thailand. Here’s how it looks like and the swatches that follow.

Top to bottom:
004 Emerald
003 Graphite
001 Onyx

Top to Bottom:
Emerald (green with gold glitter)
Graphite (grey with silver glitter)
Onyx (matte black)

The texture is super creamy. You will have to be careful not putting too much pressure while applying because a chunk will break off. Light pressure is good enough for smooth application.

I love all 3 of them. If the tip is not sharp anymore and you are not able to sharpen it (which usually happens to me) then you can use a flat eyeliner brush to swipe the colour from the eyeliner pencil tip and apply onto lids. All very pretty colours.

I wore the Emerald liner the other day I had a dark green top on. And I used a L’Oreal Automatic Slim Liner to tightline upper lash. Maybe it was unnecessary but I felt “incomplete” without a black liner. HA HA HA! The eyeliner stayed all day (I also used primer under it because I have oily lids) and the glitter is as pretty as ever.

For the colour Graphite, you can wear on its own or smudge it all over lids to create a base for other eyeshadow colours. Using grey as a base softens the smoky eye look. If you are going for more dramatic smoky eyes, just smudge the Onyx on lids and top with an eyeshadow of your choice.

Because the Lashliner is so soft, it sort of melts on your skin (really. Try it and thou shalt see), they need to be sharpened more often than other eyeliner pencils. This is not really a bad point as I like to organise and keep my makeup ready for use when the children have gone to bed. It’s mind calming and let me look forward to the next day.

The other colour which is not yet available here is the dark brown called Espresso. I wish Revlon will launch more colour selections in the future as the Lashliners are such creamy formula and pretty shades. I will definitely be getting all of them! 🙂

Have you tried the Revlon Lashliner yet? 🙂
