This review post is on a brilliant product which validates the belief that “Old is Gold”. The Benefit Magic Ink Liquid Eyeliner is one of those classic black liners that end up being a staple product in every diva’s makeup bag.
Honestly, this eyeliner is my favourite till date. I have been using it since 2011 and in the past 4 years, have finished numerous bottles with repeat purchases. It comes in a small, 2.5 ml bottle witha tight, sturdy cap and elegant plastic body. The packaging is perfect for travel purposes as well as keeping on your vanity – so compact and completely leak-proof.
Once you open the bottle, you’re delighted by the jet black liquid therein – it has an even consistency and dark pigments for a bold finish. On application, it dries in a jiffy so even novice makeup users are protected against wet-liner-smudges. As far as smudging and staying power after drying goes, this Benefit liner is virtually impossible to critique. It remains on my lids without flaking or getting lighter for many hours. I have combination skin and tend to sweat when it’s hot, but with this product, I’ve never been left with streaky, raccoon eyes.
What I love most about this eyeliner is its thin, stiff wand which allows for precise, one-swipe application. When you’re running late in the morning and rushing to get your makeup done – that’s when you truly appreciate the ease of application it offers. Perhaps this is why when I buy this liner, all others I own remain ignored and untouched till it gets over. And you might think that given that it’s just 2.5 ml, it would get over very quickly. But it actually lasts for long; I’m on my 3rd month with my current bottle.
Final Thoughts: Great Product, No Issues. Recommended for Repeat Buy
