RIMMEL VS URBAN DECAY // EYELINER

Rimmel Exaggerate Auto Waterproof Eye Definer in Noir

I used to use Maybelline’s Master Drama, and I’m telling you this stuff is most pigmented liner ever, which made it so effortless to apply. But what good is a defined black line if within 4 hours it’s faded and transferred under your eye? So, unwilling to shell out the $$ for a high-end eyeliner, I returned to the drug store with my best-friend (also having the same dilemma), kind of clueless. After searching around while simultaneously searching up the reviews of each product on our phones, we were pretty sure this Rimmel liner was our best bet. The pigmentation cannot beat the Maybellines’, but with a little more effort and time, I’m left with a line that stays. And, it does stick to the waterproof promise. So overall, such a great drugstore find.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero

This is probably the best eyeliner pencil I have ever used–and I’ve used a lot of them. It works better than any waterproof pencil I’ve tried (Lise Watier, Make Up Forever). The colour doesn’t fade and it’s smudgy enough that you can get in-between the lashes, or create a smoky eye, but so long-wearing that it won’t budge at all. I use this highly-pigmented black as a layer underneath my liquid eyeliner for more staying power and depth when I know I’m going out or need a stronger look that will last. While it’s a bit pricier than the Rimmel, the colour is so strong that you barely need to touch your eyelid and you have a super strong black–in other words: this pencil will last you forever.
