When in Germany recently, I was AMAZED by their massive range of Art Deco make-up. I wanted to just take everything back in my suitcase, but I managed to restrain myself to just an eyeliner. A gorgeous, precise, shiny eyeliner. (Okay, it's a non-shiny black, but the casing is shiny, silver, and mirrored. My inner magpie rejoiced.) That was the High Precision Liquid Liner in 01 Black, and we have been inseparable ever since.
Mirrored packaging - I love it!
Art Deco describe the pen-style liner as having a 'premium high-tech brush' delivering 'a very precise and fine eye-line', that is 'intensive' and 'deep-black'. 'It can be applied easily and is long lasting.' Pretty big claims from the German brand - Do they deliver?
Swatched both thinly, then built up into a thicker line.
As you can see, the liner comes out through a flexible, thin nib and as a result, the line drawn is extremely thin and precise. It can certainly be built up thickly, without rubbing any of the previous liner off. Does it apply easily? Yes. It's pretty easy to draw a line quickly with feathery strokes or as a steady line. While it's quite difficult to make a mistake with this liner, if you do, it's not the easiest to correct. It's definitely a positive that it dries so quickly, as it won't smudge, but you need to fix any mistakes as soon as possible.
Would I recommend it? Yes. It's long lasting, precise, and quick but - It's not the blackest liner you can get. So if your a fan of thick, dark lines, there are probably better options out there. If you prefer a thin, less dramatic look? This is a good choice. It's €15.80, though I can't say whether it's available in Ireland. It's available on Beauty Bay, but for a ridiculous price - About twice the normal cost. For German girls, it's definitely in Douglas stores.
Do you have a Holy Grail liquid liner? Or do you prefer gel or pencil?
