Topshop Magic Liner || Review & Swatches

Topshop Magic Liner - Engraved £6.50
If, like me, you love a winged liner but you're absolutely useless at doing it on your own then this post is for you! I've seen this eyeliner floating about and have always been tempted by it. The nib is super long and thin that it pretty much looks fool proof and it really is. The shape and style of the nib allows you to draw an effortless line across your lash line as thick or as thin as you want.
The colour is a really dark, opaque black. I hate eyeliners that take at least two coats to look black but this does it in one. It applies really smooth and even, meaning that you don't have to go back in for touch ups - which is usually where I mess up! This also dries really quickly so you don't have to worry about that awful black line that transfers to your eyelid the first time you blink.
Like all Topshop makeup the packaging is faultless. It's simple and elegant, yet it still looks quirky and instantly recognisable. The place where you hold the pen is cushioned making it really comfortable, especially if you know you're going to be there a while. The products is wet but not too runny meaning that it dries fast but there is also opportunity for you to remove it quickly if you make a mistake. The liner is long lasting so you don't need to worry about it sliding over your eyes whilst you're at work. If you were going from day to night makeup it would definitely need a top up though!
 To get the perfect 'wing' I've started using angled post it notes at the corner of my eyes. This makes it so easy to get even flicks as you can position the post it notes exactly where you want them. I start by drawing the line across my lash line, then draw the flick. I then go back from the flick to the lash line, filling in the flick to the thickness I like. It's a really easy way to get even flicks and it definitely speeds up the process.
What's your favourite Topshop makeup item?
