SHOP MY WARDROBE

Budget Benefit


It's not often I can talk about anything drugstore on my blog since my dressing table is dripping in high-end brands because I've become such a make-up snob, (sorry not sorry,) I know everyone likes a little variety so I jumped at the chance of writing about a product from Makeup Revolution. There's been a lot of Instagram pictures floating around of the brands eyeshadow palettes, everyone seems to be jumping on the bandwagon, but not actually trying anything else from the brand.

I received the Benefit Magic Ink Jet Black Liquid Eyeliner last Christmas, selling for £15.50. 
Don't get me wrong, it was a great eyeliner and I couldn't fault it, however I couldn't get away with using the liquid tool, I create a much better flick using a pen style eyeliner.

Anyway, I handed this Benefit eyeliner down to my mother and when she was running low she went out and brought home a liner from Makeup Revolution, and she hasn't stopped singing it's praises. I wasn't convinced, so I used the liner for a day to see for myself. 


First of all, the Makeup Revolution liner is only £1.50!
 If you love beauty on a budget, this should be on your to buy list.
The liner stays jet black all day long, doesn't smudge or leave 'half moons' on the top of your lids. The applicator is actually better than Benefit's because it's longer, however it's pretty hard so gentle application is a must. 

When swatching on the back of my hand, I found that rubbing my hand with warm water would not budge the line, it took a good coat of eye make up remover to remove it completely, amazing staying power for such a ridiculously cheap product.

  1. The applicator bit looks better than the Benefit one! and good job it doesn't leave the half moons and that my biggest hate about liquid liners. I still haven't tried a lot of the brand but the few things I have I've loved x

    1. The difference is crazy, there's no minimising on quality. You're just paying for the name with most products xx
