I was at Walgreens last night picking up a prescription, so I browsed around the beauty section since they are having their regular clearance and I had a 15% off coupon. Didn't find much inspiring on clearance, but I did see that this liner in Taupe was in stock. Most times I check for it, it isn't. I take it as a good sign that it's popular! Or there's lackluster restocking, hah. I've heard mumblings online this was a good one to check out too, so there's that. If there's anything I tend to compulsively hoard, it is liners. I like having lots of colors and variety of textures, and there's always this hope that maybe *this* is the one that will stick like glue to my waterline (yeah, right!).
Anyhow, I picked it up thinking it's a little different from anything else I have in my already too large collection, so it's clearly a must-have! I know the formula is good for non-watery areas of the eye as well. There are so many good options for budgeproof liners these days!
It's on the cooler side of brown, but not overly gray. I used it today on my upper and lower lash lines and loved it! I find that being so fair, using a standard brown or black on my lower lash line can appear harsh or overly smoky when I'm going for just a touch of definition. This was a nice natural looking shadow to define my lower eye area.
It's not even that noticeable, just a subtle darkening. Lovely!
I smudged it around the upper lash line and it blended in with the Jane Cosmetics matte shadow in Smoke I had lightly applied to the lid.
Have you tried any of the liners from this line or Taupe? What did you think?
