NEW Make Up For Ever Artist Liner in M-10 | Review

Black liner is a staple in most women's makeup bags, including mine. Although I don't wear it everyday, I love it for when I am going for a more intense eye look, and I have recently also been liking applying it to my tight line (tip: if you have blonde lashes like me, this will do wonders for opening up your eyes!), especially when paired with a vibrant eyeliner. Wearing such a dark shade however often entails a potential smudging disaster, and that is where a long wearing liner becomes a must. Make Up For Ever has just released a collection of 15 new ultra smooth and long-lasting gliding eye pencils known as the Artist Liner range which I got to try in the shade M-10*, aka a very matte black. Alongside a few other matte colors, they also released some with metallic, iridescent, diamond and satin finishes - a selection fit to appeal to all beauty lovers, that's for sure!

I own a few other matte black liners but none of them really stay put all day long, so I was really excited to see how this one would perform. In terms of pigmentation, this one is hands-down the most intense back liner I have ever tried. Ultra-smooth, creamy (practically a gel-like consistency) and it does not budge. I love that it is a retractable pencil, making application an easy task. I did not experience any smudging even after very long hours of wear, which is actually crazy since this has never happened before. When it comes to removing dark makeup, I turn to my trusty and well-loved coconut oil to get the job done, although keeping a pad soaked in makeup remover for a few seconds over the eyes can work just as well.

I usually use black liner to create a clean line but it can also be a great option for creating a more elaborate look such as a smokey eye, although you will have to work fast since the liner dries very quickly. If you have watery eyes or are prone to smudging, this Artist Liner would be a really great option!

The Make Up For Ever Artist Liners retail for C$23 and are now available at Sephora, both in stores and online as well as at Make Up For Ever boutiques.

How about you? Do you like wearing black eye liner?

  1. This sounds and looks fantastic! I could always use a super waterproof super black eyeliner! I have a very watery lower lashline and so I need to use gel pencils or Urban Decay works for me too! Thanks for the review!

  2. I've been trying out this liner in a beautiful green shade, and I love it! Lasts alllll day long on my eyes! :)

  3. I love all of my makeup to be waterproof formula. I work long days everyday and have to trust that my makeup makes it to the end of the day just as I do. LOL I can only stand to wear the blackest of the blacks. I have been experimenting with silver. I apply a thin line, just along the opening of my eyes to highlight and have been happy with the results.
