Liquid Liner Love

If you've ever been on the search for the perfect liquid eyeliner, I think I've found it. Not that I have tried that many brands of eyeliner but none I've ever used will stay on all day without smudging. They always need a touchup if I'm going out later that night.

But I found this stuff called Palladio at Nordstrom Rack for only $6 and they had some fun colors so I thought I'd give it a try. I bought the Bronze, the Brown/Black, and the Charcoal Blue. I love love love this eyeliner! It goes on really smooth and I'm able to get a perfect skinny line if that's what I want, no clumping or dragging or chunky spots. And it stays on all day BEAUTIFULLY without any smudges so at night it still looks like I just put it on!

And the colors are fabulous. I actually have a hard time deciding in the morning which I want to wear. The black/brown is a great everyday because it's not as dramatic as black so you can easily wear during the daytime. The bronze is fun and has a little shimmer and so does the charcoal blue - which really looks like a silvery dark grey. Looks awesome when wearing black clothes.

The only thing is it said it is "water resistant" and I'm not sure that it is. I haven't tried swimming with it on or anything but as soon as I get my fingertips wet to remove my makeup and night it comes right off, so you might not want to try it in a pool for the first time unless it's yours and no one else is around to see your possible racoon eyes. Otherwise, it's fantastic!

i'm scared to use liquid liner, something tells me I just won't do it 'right'. I think I'm scared I'll mess up or something so I've always used a pencil.
Maybe I'll try the kind you recommended! thanks!
