Ever since hearing about this liner I’ve been eager to get my hands on it, so when I was given a lovely makeover at the Benefit counter in Westfield Stratford by Kayla (who was really sweet and friendly) I just couldn’t resist buying this for myself.
Benefit claims to have basically created the perfect eyeliner, which is easy for anyone to apply. Being an eyeliner noob myself, I was keen to put this to the test and see just how easy it is to work with. To apply all you have to do is twist the bottom of the liner, then gently squeeze the nib to release the product before sweeping it across your lash line. I’ll admit it did take me a while to perfect squeezing out just the right amount from the nib, but once I had, boy was it easy.
My attempts at winged liner are usually epic fails, but using this liner truly did make it easy, the shape makes it perfect for quickly drawing thick, even lines but also doing much thinner lines to outline where you want your wing to be.

This also dries almost immediately after being applied, which is fab if you’re going for a thicker line, as it means you won’t end up with liner all over your eyelid. The pigmentation is also perfect, giving a matte, black line in just one sweep!
Now, on to lasting power. Boy have I tested that out this week, and it definitely performs well! I can confidently say this will stay put for the whole day (mine even lasted through a 4K run…) and removal is actually a lot easier than I thought it would be. Soak a cotton wool pad in eye make up remover, gently press it onto your eyelid for 10 seconds then wipe off and it’s gone!
So, as I am loving this liner so much (pretty sure it’s gonna be a holy grail item for me) I thought I would give you guys the chance to get your hands on one yourself!
