Does the Lancome Artliner Precision Point Eyeliner in Noir Really Make Eyelining Easy?

When the likes of Michelle, Rae and many other beauty gurus use a certain product in many of their videos and list it as one of their favorites, it is hard not to notice and be intrigued by what wonders owning one yourself might do to your life.

Own Lancome Artliner = Happier me? LOL.

Like most people, I started off with pencil and liquid eyeliners and only transited to gel eyeliners after being exposed to them in the makeup community. Gel liners are usually much more expensive, but given their longer lasting power, I’d definitely pay to get those instead of liquid ones.

I’ve had some terrible experiences with liquid eyeliners, like the MAC Liquidlast in Inky which was a disaster even though it IS the best smudgeproof eyeliner ever. Revon Colorstay Liquid Liner doesn’t quite cut it anymore ever since I started gel lining. The only liquid eyeliner I like so far is Bourjois Liner Glitter Fizz – I must do a review soon! It is gorgeous and easy to apply!

It does not come as a surprise that I am far from being ecstatic about the Lancome Artliner Precision Point Eyeliner.

My dear MAC Fluidline Blacktrack, You Were Wonderful While It Lasted. Too Dry, Goodbye.

Google ‘best gel liner’ and you’re bound to see a slew of reviews, articles, videos on the MAC Fluidline Blacktrack. Often compared to the Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner, these two brands serve the I-need-smudge-proof-eyeliner market like dental braces to crooked teeth.

HAHA. I don’t know why said that. I’m glad my braces days are over though.

Let’s go back a little in time, to when my MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack was fresh, creamy, soft and nothing less than awesome.

Smudgeproof

Due to my extremely oily skin and eyelids, I’ve always had trouble getting liquid and pencil eyeliners stay on my lashline. The closest bet I had to a non-smudge eyeliner was the Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eyeliner. It stayed on my lids no doubt, but it also transferred onto the skin above the fold. Throughout the day I had to check if there was any transfer and remove it. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero works for many people, but it smudges like mad on me. It works like a charm for tightlining though! (What is tightlining?)
