"Criminally Easy" They're Real Push Up Liner

Morning lovelies! Firstly I would like to say that I am already so overwhelmed with all your support and lovely messages about my shortlisting in the Cosmo Blog Awards! Right now I'm sitting in beautiful Majorca so I am pretty much on cloud nine!

As we have all established, I am a huge fan of Benefit makeup, especially their eye makeup. I have been using the "They're Real" mascara since its launch, and I am yet to find a mascara which even comes close to rivalling it. Therefore, when the much anticipated matching "criminally easy push up eye liner" was launched I could not wait to get my hands on it! Personally, I have never really ever found a liquid or gel style eyeliner that I have enjoyed using, and I always find myself reverting back to a traditional cheap drugstore eyeliner pencil. However, the Benefit eyeliner is completely different from these other gel eyeliners to apply, as it comes equipped with a specially shaped lash hugging rubber nip, which means it is so much easier to keep your hand steady whilst applying the product. The box suggests twisting the eyeliner once before applying along the lash line, however I personally feel like two twists will ensure a more consistent and even application.

The only negative I would state about this product is that it is incredibly quick drying, and although this helps to ensure the product stays put all day and doesn't smudge upon application, it does mean that you need to apply the product incredibly quickly and act fast once you have twisted the liner in order to release the product. I find that if you don't work quickly it becomes much harder to smoothly apply the product to the lash line.

Quick drying aside, the intensity of the black colour is amazing and I can definitely see myself growing to love this product once I have fully got to grips with how much to apply and how quick to work. The eyeliner itself is priced at £18.50 which is quite pricey compared to the £3.99 drugstore pencils you can pick up, but the innovative application technique really is worth the money, and it does seem like the product will last a very long time.

Leave your comments below and let me know what you think of this product if you'd tried it or if you're considering it, and make sure you let me know if you vote for me in the cosmo blog awards!

  9. Perfect for a cat eye. Yes perhaps it should dry a bit quicker but I guess once it you get the hang of it, it will be worth it.

  12. I've found good and bad reviews of this liner. I think I'm gonna hold my purchase for now, I'd love to try a sample, so maybe I'll wait for some. ;)

    1. i was quite sceptical too after reading some reviews... i just think its a product that you have to spend a bit of time working out how to best use it :) xx

  13. You see I hated this! It totally flaked off my eyes throughout the day and is far from easy to apply! lol I'm going to stick to the gel pots from now on!

    Congrats on being shortlisted, I've been shortlisted too so will see you at the awards! x

  17. I think this is a love it or hate it sort of product as I've seen so many mixed reviews. I don't think I'd run out and buy it as I prefer liquid liners but think the whole concept is pretty cool and different.

    1. I completely agree.. I think the innovate application system is either really easy for people to get their heads around, or really confusing! xx

  20. I gave this a try as well to try combat the classic eyeliner smudge I always get! I had the same trouble as you with the twisting a few times so I'm glad that's not just me!
    If you want to read how I found it i've just blogged about it :)

  22. I have yet to try this liner! I love the fact that it is quick drying because I always hate having to wait for the liner to dry before I can continue! Currently I'm using the Bobbi Brown Gel liner, have you tried it? Its fantastic and it definitely lasts much longer than your average liner because it comes in a little container as opposed to a stick!

    Cheers,

    1. I agree, I always end up smudging my eye liner because I am always in such a rush in the mornings! I've not tried the bobbi brown liner though and may give it a try, thankyou for the recommendation! xx
