Review: TONYMOLY Backgel Eyeliner in Black

YAY! so here we go I've been itching to review this baby ever since I've used it. TONYMOLY Backgel Eyeliner is included in my very first Althea box. Love love love that box because its pink!~

I am one of those monolid girls who is used to using eye liners. It doesn't matter if I woke up late or if I need to catch the train, the eyeliner is a must. Eye liner just makes my eye pop. Fuu~ the struggles.

What is it? 
Tonymoly Backgel Eyeliner has 6 shades, black, brown, pearl brown, khaki black, pearl black and choco brown. I got mine in black because I am not used to brown liners no matter how much they say it looks more natural than the latter.  Brown liner makes me look warm.

The packaging of the gel liner is made of plastic. The cap of the liner encloses the liner brush. Hooray for girls like me with no liner brush available. Its smart but a bit bulky. The brush is easily removed from the cap while I lug it around in my kit.

Tonymoly gel liner is creamy and there was no skin tugging. The color is true black, no glitters or shimmers and dries into matte. It mostly stays decent throughout the day. However I've used this during the summer days but there was product fall outs which darkened my under eye area but its not that 'dark' to be called panda eyes. I understand pretty much that there can be no miracle to make a gel liner stay all day especially with the Philippines' humid weather.

At the end of the day I tend to scratch my eyes because I am naturally sensitive to eye products. I remove this with my favorite facial wash and its easily washed off.

How much and where to buy? 
P290 for 4g liner at Althea Philippines or Tonymoly kiosks in the leading malls

What I love 

  • Creamy liner which means creating smooth lines will be easy
  • True black
  • No glitters or shimmers
  • Stays put during cool season
  • Doesn't make my eye itchy
  • Dries matte
  • waterproof (but not sweat proof)
  • Long lasting
  • Affordable

What I don't 

  • Product fall-outs during humid weather
  • Not smudge-proof

Don't use when the weather is hot, might melt because its cannot withstand sweat.

Will I repurchase? 
Maybe but I want to try other gel liner brands like Maybelline or Loreal too~

TONYMOLY Backgel Eyeliner in Black is a fab find, its cheap and it does its job. Thumbs up for this product, this is perfect for girls who would like to try gel liners for the first time. :)

Review: Shawill Pretty Color Eyeliner 01

Hello lovelies! How's your Valentines? As for me I spent the day making pink ribbons! Sigh~ I love pink! It's not really an exciting way to spend the day eh?

For today I will be talking about the newest eyeliner I purchased. I have always liked sparkly stuffs that's I really adore glittery/shimmery/sparkly make-ups! My love for shimmers even grew more because of watching korean eye make-up tutorials. I have been keeping an eye on tear drop liners but since its always OOS then I have decided to look for an alternative.

Shawill Pretty Color Eyeliner 01
A rich colour liquid eye liner that combines long-lasting wear with a non-smudge, non-flake precision line. Goes on effortlessly. Applies with its own brush to draw a perfectly defined line. Available in a wide range of classic and trend shades.
I was like a jumping rabbit when I've seen this liner. I love the glitters! Some people though might not like the chunky glitters because its far from the usual look of teardrop liners.
Shawill Pretty Color Eyeliner looks better in person than in photos because it doesn't show much in pics. I use this on my lower waterline in place of tear drop liners. The shade is in numbers only, mine is in 01. 01 has colorful glitters and a clear base.
I use this liner in school and it stays the whole day! Hooray! :D

Price: 8ml for Php98

Where to buy? Shawill counters at Watsons

  • Has pretty micro glitters!
  • Colorless base. Perfect for neutral looks.
  • Stays the whole day for me
  • Affordable

  • Not too visible on photos
  • When worn for more than half a day the liner flakes
Will I buy again?
No. I want to try other glitter liners from other brands like Etude House. I am so curious on the difference of Tear drop liners to normal glitter liners.
