Almay Eyeliner Is Way Too Serious

It is always best to think a little before picking up a makeup product. You will never know which one turns out to be totally harmful for the skin. For a second, I forgot it and impulsively took in my shopping cart this Almay eyeliner.

I was in a hurry to get home. Only thing in my head that time was that I needed something new because I ran out of my old one. Doubt still kept dancing in my head. This was my first time buying this eyeliner. So obviously, I could not throw the receipt in the trashcan. What if I needed refund? Did it finally happen? The review of this eyeliner is given below. You will find the answer to the question in that.

According to Almay, this eyeliner is hypoallergenic. This means that it is not supposed to give us itch or allergic reaction. Well, for me, it turned out to be true. I felt no itch or bumps from it. Almay also says that the eyeliner lasts up to 16 hours and is smudge free. We usually do not keep makeup on more than 14 hours.

 But this does not mean there is no way to find out whether that 16 hours lasting claim is true. But I must emphasize that I have no seen the eyeliner melt at all. Even under stress of the heat, it remains fresh. In short, the black color does not turn gray or green. The claim that the eyeliner is smudge free is also true. Let me show you a test I have done on the quality of this eyeliner. See the picture below. This one one was taken yesterday at 5pm. S
First line made from the eyeliner
Shower was taken after that. Even sleeping was done. Today at 5pm, the second picture was taken. So the test basically lasted 24 hours. This is the final result.
Little faded, but the mark remains
Notice that in the second picture, the color has faded, but its texture has not gone through much changes. Apparently, there is something unusual about the gliding texture of this crayon. It seems to be highly intuitive. In other words, it knows exactly what kind of line we want to create. When forced its shape turns thicker. When slowed down something thinner gets drawn. That is why, I would say that this eyeliner is too serious about what it does.

So far we have discussed the good points about this eyeliner. Let us now concentrate on its weaknesses. To some extent, the best features of this Almay crayon become its worst disadvantages. Just a few days ago, I made a mistake in the line. Its tail (or wing) ended up going off track. Nothing was powerful enough to get rid of it. In the end, I had to remove my entire makeup and restart. What this means is that we need to be careful when wearing this eyeliner. Another thing is that the eyeliner cannot be used to create smokey eye makeup. But again, this is not made for such task. Recall that Almay said it is smudge free.

Still I must say that I am stunned by what the eyeliner offers. The most fascinating part is its intuitive ability. This is what really helps in getting the perfect line. Neither the professionals nor the novices will feel disappointed with it. The price of this product is also quite reasonable. But yes, the line mistake costs a lot! That is why, instead of full 5, I would give it 4.5 stars.
