Flower Beauty’s Easy on the Eyes Long Wear Eyeliner reminds me a lot of the Stila Smudge Sticks. I love the Stila Smudge Sticks, so I am overjoyed at the thought of a less expensive alternative with a slightly different color range!
They come packaged in, I guess it’s a blister pack? Plastic holding the product on the cardboard backing – you know what it is! J When you remove the pencil from the package, it reveals a quote from Drew Barrymore that says, “You’re putting a good thing out there when you put on glitter.” I think that’s so cute and it put a little smile on my face. J There’s not really anything else remarkable about the outer packaging, but it is pretty and makes me kind of happy to look at it. The pencil itself is in a skinny white plastic twist-up tube with a cap that closes securely so you needn’t worry about the cap coming off and the liner destroying everything in it’s path. I’m not quite sure why I spent that much time on the packaging of an eyeliner, but there you have it! J It is well done, so it deserves some credit. Anyway, onward….
I ordered the liner in “Navy” because I don’t think I currently own any navy eyeliners. I am so so glad I did because the navy is stunningly beautiful, while still being subtle enough to wear every day. I love love love this color!!! It is blue, but it is dark enough that it doesn’t scream “hey, look at me, I’m wearing blue eyeliner!” It’s a nice subtle, almost-back, navy. So I’m sold on the color, but how about the formula?
As I said, this liner reminds me a lot of the Stila Smudge Sticks. The pencil itself is soft, but not so soft that it just smushes when any pressure is applied. It glides on beautifully and is very nicely pigmented. There is no tugging or skipping and it creates a nice soft line – by soft, I mean that it doesn’t have overly harsh, sharp edges like some traditional pencil liners can sometimes create. The liner can be smudged a bit for a minute or two, but then it is set and it’s not going anywhere for the rest of the day. It even passes the waterline test!!! It did not budge one bit from my waterline all day – and I even took a nap with it on!!! Even the Stila Smudge Sticks do not perform that well on the waterline! Great formula, great color and affordable; what more could you ask for?
The Flower Easy on the Eyes Long Wear Eyeliner impressed me so much that I have ordered one in Black, Brown and Aubergine too! I debated the Khaki Shimmer as well, but I have a khaki Smudge Stick, which is a surprisingly nice color btw, and decided that I would hold off on that one for a bit. I would highly recommend picking up at least one of these eyeliners!!!
Flower Beauty’s Easy on the Eyes Long Wear Eyeliner is sold exclusively at Walmart. I believe it is currently available only on their website. The pencils retail for $5.98 and are available in Black, Brown, Khaki Shimmer, Aubergine and Navy. (I believe they are currently labeled online as the Raise Some ‘Brows Defining Brow Pencils – look for the shades that begin with an “EL”, and you’ve found the eyeliners.) I’ve linked them below to make them easier to find.
