review: HOURGLASS Calligraphy Liquid Eye Liner

i have to admit that i am not a regular liquid eyeliner wearer.

can i tell you a secret?

i can never seem to get the line the same on both eyes. it's so frustrating! it would always be that i would get one eye perfect, from the inner eyelid to the outer part of the lid, the line would be thin and then widen to a just perfect width (you know what i'm talking about, right?), and the other, well...notsomuch.

that was until i was able to try the Calligraphy Liquid Eye Liner by Hourglass.

before i tell you how excited i am about this product, let me talk about the packaging: bronze, very attractive and sleek. i love it when a product looks good. it just makes the experience that much more special. with this eye liner, it's as though the Hourglass people knew that a fabulous product needed a fabulous package. who am i kidding? of course they knew, that's their job...(focus monique...) moving on...

this felt-tip liquid liner has to be, hands down, the best liquid liner i have ever tried. i am amazed at the precise application and that the quick-drying formula (no globs or running) really did last all day. even after testing it to see if it would smudge when i rubbed it with my finger, it didn't budge. my eyes looked fabulous all day!

i am so happy with this product. can i say it enough? it creates great definition to my lash line, and helps make my eyes pop. it is truly fabulous- the great color (Cognac--deep brown) and the wearability is unmatched! i do believe i have found my HG liquid eyeliner. i will definitely be wearing this more often!

available in Ebony, Cognac and Indigo, find Hourglass Calligraphy Eye Liner at and
