The Balm Schwing Black Liquid Eyeliner Review
Here's a review on The Balm Schwing Black Liquid Eyeliner
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in all Beauty Bar boutiques
There aren't a lot of eye makeup products out there that's perfect for contact lens wearers, so if you see one, you should keep it in the radar. (That is, if you wear contact lens everyday) I'm talking about The Balm's Schwing Black Liquid Eyeliner, one of their latest products that'll keep your eyes primped and ready for boyspotting haha!
THE BALM SCHWING BLACK LIQUID EYELINER IN DETAIL
The Balm said that Schwing is a quick- dry, matte, long- wearing liquid liner that' Paraben- Free, Cruelty- Free, and has a unique felt tip that allows precise application. It comes in one shade only.
Ingredients: water ((aqua) eau), alcohol denat., glycerin, pullulan, disodium coco-glucoside citrate, hectorite, xanthan gum, citric acid, sodium hydroxide, sodium dehydroacetate, iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), ferric ammonium ferrocyanide (CI 77510).
Here's the applicator. I find the tip thinner compared to most felt-tip liners I have. If you want to achieve a thin line, run the applicator on top of your lids gently and lightly, and press it down (but gently as well) to get a thicker line. I just find the distance between the handle and applicator a bit too long and this means I don't have better control over the latter.
More about this product after the break.
Here are swatches of the product in varying intensities. Indeed, this product dries up pretty fast and formulation's pretty gentle and I never experienced any stinging sensation upon application. Packaging's very quirky and so slim that you can pop it right in your pocket.
THE BALM SCHWING BLACK LIQUID EYELINER IN ACTION
One layer of Schwing Black Liquid Eyeliner
Pigmentation is heavy and it yields full coverage in one go. I also noticed that it applies very evenly, with no gaps during application. I love the vintage-y, suede finish of this one.
Staying power is pretty good on cool days, but transfers on my upper lids for a little on warm days and when my lids begin to oil up. Wear time is okay, but 'tis not waterproof and sebum- proof though. I guess aside from contact lens wearers, this will work better on those with normal skin. On oily skin, use with primer or lightly dust translucent powder on top to inhibit smudging.
