Remember when I mentioned this product in my February & March Favourites? Well I’m finally getting around to my full review, yeah, it took I while, I’m sorry. This product was around $12BDS from #1 Beauty Supply.
Let’s start with the packaging and brush. This is very sleek and has a substantial length, so it’s not awkward to hold in your hand. The bush is also well weighted, so that you have good control when applying the product. The brush tip reminds me of the Coastal Scents liquid eyeliner, as it is a sturdy felt tip, and very easy to use, once you get the hang out it.
Be sure to shake this well before you use it, or you will end up with a very splotchy line. Once the formula is mixed, I was about to get very pigmented black lines drawn. The only downside is that the eyeliner has a shiny finish, hence the name Black vinyl. And that doesn’t look so fabulous on my already big eyes. There are other fun colours available in this range, but I just needed a black eyeliner at that time.
Although not a waterproof formula, if you were to wet it, it doesn’t bleed and create a mess. But it would roll away in pieces if rubbed. Making removal of this eyeliner very effortless. AND non-irritating :).

The Raw Sugar:There’s not much more I could really say about this eyeliner, besides it’s good quality and has a long lasting, pigmented formula. Good for everyday use, however I’m not sure how well the brush would fare making very artistic or thin lines, as I never do either of those. I do really wish the finish wasn’t glossy.
Where to purchase:Beauty Supply stores (Barbados), Milani online store, Cherry Culture (USA/ rest of the World)
