I’ve always had issues with eye makeup. Not sure why, but getting eyeliner on right usually takes time and a steady hand for me. Mascara has always proven to be way easier; growing up, I shied away from heavy eyeliners and liquids, mainly due to my contact lenses, being an active student and not having time for all the upkeep that usually came with a “face”.
These days I sometimes have no choice but to do my eyes, so meeting and interviewing Danny Griffin earlier this year, Creative Director of Kevyn Aucoin Beauty and industry veteran, was a real pleasure. It was at a launch party in New York that I caught up with him and also tested out the brand’s then soon-to-be released Precision Liquid Liner. Frankly, if I could say hand-downs it is the best, I would. But I just haven’t played with too much liner to pass that judgement. It is, however, am amazing and totally worth-it product. As Griffin explains it is a “no-fuss, sexy addition to the collection. Even those who aren’t used to eye makeup should love this liner”.
The tube is slim and ergo-dynamic, yet thick enough for one to get a good grip on. The ease and smoothness in which the product glides on is impressive…no creases and the felt tip helps keep it on point and even. Even better, it is “waterproof” yet easily removed. One swipe with a Comodynes Makeup Remover towelette and et voila, all gone! And the color, as the brand notes, “is the blackest of black”. Indeed, it is a sexy, dramatic carbon- black that suits any complexion.
Kevyn Aucoin’s Precision Liquid Liner is non-toxic and can work across all seasons, too. The staying power is incredible, making it a worthy investment. Many of us know the legendary Aucoin for the art he created during his impressive and notable career. It is great to see the brand alive and looking so fabulous.
