Winged Eyeliner

Dear Juliet,

I am often told that the brand and price of makeup do not really matter as far as looking good is concerned. What's important is the quality of the makeup and how it is applied. So, for my first cosmetics review, let me show you my winged eyeliner--a makeup look I am trying to master the past few days. I am not a PRO makeup artist. Yes, I work in a local cosmetics company, but I can only do my own makeup. This is going to be my first attempt to blog about cosmetics, so please bear with me.

I used the Ever Bilena Dipliner.
How I did it: I started with a thin stroke from the inner eye corner, making the strokes thicker as the felt tip approaches the outer corner. Following the direction of the lower lash line, create the tip and decide the length you want for your wing. Even out the strokes so that you have a clean finish.
What I like about it: It has a felt tip, which makes application quick, easy, and clean; It dries quickly so the liquid does not smear.
What I don't like about it: It has a shiny finish (I like matte better); It cracks after some time.

When you blink too much or accidentally stretch your skin, this is what happens to the dipliner:

All in all, it does its job as a liquid eyeliner. It's an affordable option for the budget restrained. But if asked if I'd buy one again, I'd have to say no. I'd invest in more expensive brands especially if I know that it'll last and that it has better quality.
