Don’t you just love it when you buy one product you can use in multiple ways? I thought you might appreciate that (I know I sure do) which is why I wanted to tell you about the latest from Giorgio Armani’s Spring 2012 collection. One of the items that got my attention was the Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in the shade Antique – a metallic gold that isn’t brassy or harsh.
Antique is creamy – without being too soft – and has the precision of a kohl. It doesn’t smudge, wears for hours and doesn’t irritate my sensitive eyes even when applied on the waterline. It also does not come with a sharpener by the way.
I’ve been playing with this pencil for some time and these are my favorite ways to use it:
1. As a true blue inner rim (waterline) liner. Because Antique is waterproof, it lasts a decent amount of time in the waterline (and i have very watery, irritable eyes). But don’t expect mega color. This is not a bold gold rather, it leaves a wisp of metallic goddess-like sheen subtly brightening and opening the eye.
2. Speaking of brightening, it also works wonders as an inner eye highlighter. A few strokes along the tear duct and you’ll look like you’ve had a long nights slumber.
3. Giorgio Armani Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil isn’t just for the eye. To plump your pout, try running a little on the outer edges of your upper lip focusing on the cupids bow. When the soft metallic shade hits the light, your lips are in focus!
