Black liquid eyeliner is a staple in many people’s makeup collection. There are hundreds of options out there and it’s hard to sort out the good from the bad. The drugstore has some really good options (looking at you Maybelline Line Stiletto eyeliner) but I feel as if high end makeup brands covet the truly impressive liquid liners.
I initially headed to Sephora with two eyeliners in mind; the Stila Stay All Day liner and the Kat Von D Tattoo liner. The Stila liner was not available to swatch which was disappointing but I did get to swatch the Kat Von D one. It was impressive, don’t get me wrong, but while I was swatching it, this little Tarte Micro Liner caught my eye.
The So Fine Micro Liner is part of Tarte’s recent Rainforest of the Sea line. It’s incredibly black, waterproof, and vegan friendly! I haven’t tested the waterproof capabilities but the liner does last all day! Doing a winged liner still takes me ages so when I’m trying to do my makeup quickly I’ll just draw on a thin line and be done with it. The tiny tip makes doing so incredibly easy and fast. The formula glides on no problem and dries down to an almost matte finish.
The So Fine Micro Liner retails for $22 and you get .0169 fl oz. of product. I just bought the liner so I don’t know how long it will last before it dries up, but I’m hoping it will last a while. Another plus of this liner is its packaging! I love the gold and black paired with the blue and purple cap; so cute!
