About 4 years ago, Corianne,Jen and I decided that we should make appointments at Nordstrom to get our make up. Just for the fun of it. We had so much fun, we decided that we’d do it every year. No need for a special occasion; it was just fun to go get pretty and have some girl time.
Fast forward 4 years later and we’ve still keeping our tradition. We usually try to switch up the makeup counters we visit: the first year was MAC, one year we did Nars, and this year we decided to go back to Laura Mercier. Mainly, because they were doing a gift-with-purchase. 🙂
I typically try to buy something, whether it’s a lip gloss or a concealer or some eye wrinkle serum they tell me I need (please, I’m Asian) and this year my artist tried to sell me an eyeliner. Now, I actually needed an eyeliner, but I have had the hardest time finding one that works.
They bleed. Or smudge. Or run down my face. Or are pretty much non-existent by 2pm.
She went on to tell me how this particular type is “bullet proof” and won’t smear. She even told me it was hard to wash off at night. Okay, for $20.00, that eyeliner better apply itself in the morning and wash itself off at night.
But I figured I’d give it a try. (And most likely return in it 2 days.)
I wore it all afternoon and to my pleasant surprise, it stayed on THE WHOLE DAY. Didn’t smudge or bleed. Didn’t fade or flake off.
I’ve never been so happy to be wrong.
Here’s a photo of the Laura Mercier Graphic Liquid Eyeliner in Black Lacquer:
Okay, this is a little gross. It’s a suuuuuuuper close up of my eye. But I wanted to show that it didn’t smudge or run down my face. And it’s been about 8 hours since it was first applied.
So if you’ve been on the market for a good eyeliner, give this one a try. It is a little expensive, but if I added up all of the money I’ve wasted on cheap, non-working eyeliner…
Yeah. It’s still expensive. I don’t know where I was going with that thought.
