I was going to call this post IF I DO THIS AGAIN, SOMEONE SLAP ME because seriously, old dogs learn quicker than I do.
I seem to have two (very) basic approaches when applying eye make up; one using very neutral shades and perhaps a bit o' shimmer and the other is no real colour on the lid but a great slick of black eyeliner. For whatever reason, and this probably comes back to the old dogs things again, I seem incapable of anything more but in all honesty, these two looks suit me fine.
I've always favoured the felt tip type liners mainly for the fact that they're so easy to use; no pots and brushes, no flimsy and sometimes unpredictable nibs but rather a plain and simple pointed felt tip with just the right amount of give. Perfect for someone of little patience who's not too fussed about delicacy.
Anyway, as I said...
IF I BUY ANY MORE OF THESE EYELINERS, PLEASE SOMEONE THROW SOMETHING AT ME.
My most recent two purchases, both the felt tip type, are both by Rimmel and both dried up within about er, two weeks of using them? And that's not using them every day either.
Surely this can't be right, can it?!
Seriously. They're perfectly jet black, extremely easy to apply, and awesome looking (to the extent that one of them featured in my TOP 5 CURRENT EYE PRODUCTS post a while ago) but within no time at all, they don't leave even half the impression that they once did and they definitely become more Katie Melua damp squib than Amy Winehouse BAM.
And so I vow, with you all as my witnesses, to never buy another bloody felt tip eye liner.
