Next up in today’s Tarina Tarantino post-a-thon are three of her Eye Dream Hyperliners: Broken Doll, a very pale pink; Sparkling Ammunition, an olive green, and Cute Robot, a deep blue. All three are shimmery.
These are very soft-textured pencils – they remind me in softness of Prestige Total Intensity eyeliners. They are softer than Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliners. When first applied, they are very blendable and smudgeable, and although they dry down somewhat, I was still able to smudge my hand swatch after two minutes – which is very different than the Prestige Total Intensity liners, which are soft but then set to an immovable finish.
However, I’m wearing Sparkling Ammunition on my upper lash line right now, and it hasn’t smudged or migrated over the last hour – though I do have dry lids. These are going to need some experimentation (they could be set with translucent powder or matching eyeshadow), but I think they are probably best for people with normal to dry eyelids.
I applied Broken Doll to my waterline about an hour ago as well, and it’s still going strong – I think these are actually quite a nice texture for the waterline, since they are so smooth and easy to apply.
As requested, here’s a picture of my eye with Broken Doll on the waterline – it’s quite hard to see in photos, but does brighten up the eye area:
I apologize for the blurring of the swatches; for some reason none of my pictures came out quite right! Additionally Broken Doll looks white next to the darkness of the other colors – but it is actually a very pale, shimmery pink.
When I swatched the eyeliner in store, I thought Sparkling Ammunition might be a dupe for Prestige Total Intensity eyeliner in Intense Olive (it’s not) – but it was when I got home that I realized there was something familiar seeming about Cute Robot. I pulled out my Prestige Total Intensity eyeliner in Fierce Blue and Intense Olive, and here are the results:
