I was really excited when I saw the full Milani Cosmetics line in my local Rexall Drug Store. I picked up a few items to try and one of them was the Milani Eye Tech Perfection Liquid Liner.
I wear liquid liner almost everyday so I’m not a novice but I thought if this could make applying liquid liner that much quicker and easier than why not give it a shot. The ergonomic design allows for easy handling and more stability when applying liquid liner. The top of the liner has a dip that I was able to rest my index finger on and extend my thumb to stabilize application closer to the felt tip.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find this very comfortable. Maybe my hands are a bit small but holding this was uncomfortable and I had to constantly change the positioning of my fingers to try to get a better grip. I ended up just wrapping my hand around the tip of this (similar to what I do to my standard pen-style liners) to apply it on. I wasn’t able to get a perfect line. One thing I’ll note is that I’m right-handed but this made applying eyeliner on my left eye much easier than most other liners. Also, I really love the deepness of this black, it dries matte and doesn’t smudge. I also love that the felt tip is long and has a precise point which makes creating thick or thin lines easy. I think with any new product you need to practice a bit to get the hang of it. I’m sure that someone new to eyeliner will find the learning curve with this shorter than a standard liner, but for me I think I’ll just stick to what I know.
Have you tried this liner? How well does it work for you? What’s your favourite eye liner?
Lots of Luv,
This looks different! It seems like it might make applying your liner more difficult if you need to reposition your hands a lot. I’ve seen an angled eyeliner brush from elf but I always use a pen so I don’t know if it makes the gel any easier.
It wasn’t for me to use this. I like using my regular liner for sure.
I didn’t know that elf had an angled liner as well, wonder of it looks any different.
Yeah it’s an angled brush that you use with gel eyeliner so it looks a bit different! I’ve never tried it though. I’ve only ever tried applying gel with a brush once and it didn’t end well lol.
