You know the Muse, she’s such a picky little thing when it comes to drugstore buys. But I must say I’m feeling the love for L’Oreal HIP Color Chrome Eyeliner when I got a few to test out this week.
It’s a rather great little find that’s a good value with a solid supporting formula to back it up plus it’s available in some rather festive shades if you want to spice up your holiday look with a splash of metallic liner.
These guys are currently available in four shades and are $8.99-$10 per liner depending on where you shop it. I’m taking into consideration that many drugstores have sales week to week that feature buy 1, get 1 50% Off or buy 1, get 1 free that makes these even more of a super value if you score them during a sale.
The liners have a metallic finish with a rich, creamy formula that glides onto eyes nicely minus skips or tugs for a smooth application and have a healthy pigmentation for good color pay off.
Shades available are Silver Lightening (Silver), Black Shock (Black), Violet Volt (Royal Purple), and Gold Charge (Gold). Silver Lightening and Black Shock are ideal for a smoky eye and Gold Charge is currently my favorite of the bunch. Silver, Black, and Gold will pair up nicely with sparkling shades of eye shadow for a shimmering Holiday look if you’re so inclined.
If you’re not wanting to dish it for an expensive liner I definitely recommend checking these out. The formula is excellent, the full size at under $10 in most cases is a great deal, and the interesting shades make for a great little beauty on a budget purchase. Best part about them? They have an incredibly vivid foiled finish as if you applied them wet, gorgeous!
Check ’em, likey alot!
