Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner
It looks slightly glittery but you don't see that when you apply it unfortunately. It isn't particularly long wearing if you have watery eyes either. It's OK but I wouldn't buy another one.

Getting used to it
I have always used a gel eye liner to 'tightline' the inner eyelid, so this product required some mastering...however I would like to share some tips:
1. Dare to make the product quite wet and use a straight brush (I use Mitastyle #8 from Screenface)
2.Dab the product as close to the lashes or even into the lashes as you can...when it is a little drier you can to darken the entire exposed inner lid
3. With eyes kept open and unblinking, wave a stiff piece of card to DRY the product, this will prevent it from running into your eyes and messing up the desired effect; once you blink when it is still wet it transfers to the bottom 'waterline',... unless that is a look you like.
4. Et voila! The effect of dense lashes is complete.
5. Use a Bi-phase eye make-up remover at the end of the day, right at the product, or else it won't come off> which means it stays put all day and beyond.
Good luck and enjoy.
