The Body Shop Skinny Felt Eyeliner Review

I have been blogging for a while now, and it`s been a hell of a ride. Beauty blogging means that you are tempted to buy every new release and eat bagels and still water for a week, until your next payday. On top of that, your room probably looks like the warehouse for Boots or Sephora. Yes, beauty blogging meant a lot of unnecessary purchases for me, but it also taught me a thing or two. I now know how to contour, highlight and even use eyeliner. I can probably do a perfect flick 5-6 times per year, but let`s not get tangled in details. For months, my go-to product was Supercat from Soap&Glory, but I wanted to try something different, so I got this little guy from The Body Shop.

This eyeliner is very easy to use and even if you`re not the most precise person, you can still draw an even line. It does last for a couple of good hours, around 6-7, without smudging. I got the black version, and it is very pigmented, with somewhat of a glossy finish. I quite like that, to be honest, but there are a lot of other problems with this product. First of all, it`s not waterproof, and that`s an inconvenience for my watery eyes. I also live in London and 5 out of 7 days, it`s raining, so I have to be very careful when I use this. Also, while it does not smudge, it does take a while to dry completely out, so that`s another inconvenience for me.

Overall, I am not that impressed with this eyeliner. I know it`s only 10£, but you can find cheaper and better alternatives. It`s a shame to be honest because I really like the finish, but the fact that it`s not waterproof is a deal breaker for me. 

I think I`ll buy Supercat again, but if you have any other recommendations for a drugstore eyeliner, don`t hesitate to tell me. Also, let me know if you`ve tried this product before and if you liked it or not.

  1. I love Body Shop products, they have not disappointed me once but I haven't tried many on makeup, mostly skincare products! :)

  2. I've never tried any of the Body Shop's makeup apart from the primer which is quite good (doesn't make your makeup last forever but lets other makeup apply smoothly).

  4. That's a pity as I use Supercat too but I've been looking for a similar drugstore dupe with a little more pigment. I've heard amazing things about the Loreal liquid eyeliners too.

  5. Shame this eyeliner didn't really work out for you! I can definietly relate to what you said about beauty blogging making you spend way too much money on beauty products... Before I started my blog, my makeup collection wasn't very big, and now I eye up new purchases every month! x
