I actually picked this up the first day DSquared was released but I managed to drop this liner on the way home from MAC, but weirdly enough I did not drop anything else. I am still kicking myself for it. I called up my friend who was on her way to MAC and asked her to pick one up for me if she can. As you can see I have it in my possession now, I decided to go to MAC again to pick up the Shape and Scuplt and the 165 brush, but while I am there and they still have Feline in stock I might as well pick up a back up.
The photographs do not give this liner justice as the flash washes out the black a bit and there are some shimmer fallout from my other eye makeup. This is the truest, darkest, coal black liner I have ever used. This liner doesn’t have glitter or shimmer, just plain solid black. I did not pick this one up when it was released in several previous collections because I thought a black liner is a black liner, but I was wrong. This liner glides on very softly and smoothly and it is very pigmented. I usually have problems having black liners staying and showing on my waterline because they are not black enough or the liner is very hard to work with. I have no problems with this showing up on my waterline because it is so dark and I can apply the product easily. It is very easy to blend and can be smudge out for a smokey eye look. Unlike the MAC Greasepaint sticks their kohl liners do not dry or set. The kohl liners are not waterproof or smudge proof. My experiences wearing MAC Kohl liners are that they smudge and fade throughout the day and they may not be the best option for hot summer days or if you have oily eyelids. If you also have a habit of rubbing your eyes: keep your hands away from eyes! As this is so black you will end up looking like a raccoon. If you are to wear this in the daytime or when it is very hot out, I would highly suggest using an eyeliner seal such as Medusa’s Makeup Eyeliner Seal or Benefit Shelaq after you apply and achieve your desired look to set and seal the liner to prevent more smudging. I would also put a light dusting of powder over my eyes. However, if you are going for a smokey smudgy eye for an evening outing, don’t be afraid to go all out with this baby and have fun with it.

I thought I would squeeze in a little tibit about myself and share one of my other loves in my blog: shoes! These are my favourite pair of flats and I am wearing it out until it falls apart and until weather permits. They are perfectly comfortable and perfectly kelly green. Sadly as the weather gets colder and wetter I will need to pack these away and replace these with UGG boots and rain boots.
