by Lauren From Lauren Loves…

hi I'm Lauren from Lauren loves... I'm so excited to be guest posting on beauty and blog, hope you enjoy it...

Liquid eyeliners, felt-tip eyeliners, gel eyeliners… how’s a girl supposed to choose which one to use? Well here’s my little show of different types of eyeliners, the effects they give and finally my first beauty how-to video: how I apply liquid eyeliner!

From L-R: Bourjois Liner Feutre, Collection 2000 Fast Stroke Eye Liner, No7 Gel Eyeliner
Bourjois Liner Feutre

This eyeliner comes in the form of a felt-tip pen to make it easy to use. As you can see the nib is very precise and does give easy application.

It’s a great products for first time users, the nib gives a steady flow of liner and makes eyeliner easy. My only complaint is that it’s not a very dark line, it’s more watery and grey.

Here’s the result. A great line and really easily applied but I’d prefer something more bold.

Collection 2000 Fast Stroke Eye Liner

This eyeliner comes in the traditional pot-and-brush format, the handle on the blog is the perfect length to hold easily and balance on your hand for a smooth line. I like the tip of this brush too, it’s a felty brush which I find easier to use than the traditional bristles brush.

You can see the brush holds together and isn’t bendy so gives a great line. Here’s the result

You can see it gives a bold line, it’s not too thick and application is really easy and controllable.

No7 Gel Eyeliner

This eyeliner is an ink pot and brush application. The brush has a very small handle which is quick fiddly, and apparently the eyliner dries up in the pot after a while. The brush length is really good though, nice and short for precise application. As you can see in my old review, it’s really lovely to use, but maybe not a first-time liquid liner to use. Here’s the result

This liner gives a very bold line again, and as you can see from the very first photo,

in comparison to other liquid eyeliners it looks more gel and shiney compared to the others.
The last thing I have to show you is a liquid eyeliner tutorial! This is my first ever video and you can probably see I’m really nervous – I’m glad I managed to keep a smooth hand through the video!

Hope this information and tutorial was useful! x

  2. Fabby post. I've been pondering a new eyeliner - especially that new No7 one. You've made my mind up for me!

  3. I'm a big fan of the Bourjois Liner Feutre too!
    Been using for over 3 years now!!!


  4. Great post, it was interesting seeing how different they all looked on your eye =)

    If anyones interested, one of my favorite liquid liners is The Body Shop one in Taupe- I'm very pale so the color is perfect for blondies like me!

  5. Thanks for your lovely comments everyone xxx

  6. I have used the Bourjois liner for a few years and those swatches are not true to life in my opinion! The line comes out a very bold black for me. Maybe the liner is a bit old and therefore dried up? Or is it in a brown shade instead of black? Very peculiar! Great post from Lauren anyway xx

  7. Really? Maybe I got a duff one because this is quite new and it's always been grey and faded. And it's definitely black. Hmm... xxx
