Essence Breaking Dawn 2 Glitter Eyeliner is one of two new sparkling eyeliners available for a limited time launched with Essence’s new Breaking Dawn Park 2 Makeup Collection.
Anyone remember being obsessed with Urban Decay Heavy Metal Liners? I couldn’t be alone in that addiction…right? Anyone? Although at this point, I realize a heavily encrusted lash line full of glitter isn’t exactly the height of makeup sophistication but hey, I had fun with it and that’s what matters right?
No worries though Essence’s Glitter Eyeliner is a little more subtle.
This $2.99 Glitter Eyeliner is 0.13 oz in size and comes with a thin precise brush for application. The glitter is suspended in a clear gel-like eyeliner and can be swiped across your lash line to add a bit of sparkle or you can comb it through lashes to produce a shimmery lash look.
The effect is very subtle when compared to products like Urban Decay Heavy Metal Eyeliners so no worries about looking overly shimmery or sparkly. The shade I tried, Jacob’s Protection, is an ocean blue with specks of silver. The color works well with a traditional smoky eye look or a blue smoked out one.
You do need to line and re-line for the best results as a single application is very subtle but building up will produce more of a sparkly effect. It seems to last all day and removes easily enough at the end of the day with a little eye makeup remover.
All in all it’s a nice little budget pick if you want to add a little, not a lot, of sparkle to your Holiday looks!
The collection is available for a limited time at Ulta.
