I know I've been posting a lot of Jordana reviews lately, but here's the funny thing: the liner I'm about to show you was actually not sent to me by Jordana for review--it was sent to me by the lovely Cutiegingerbread as an extra little surprise when she sent me the Benefit Stay Put Set I reviewed a little while back. (Thank you, Cutiegingerbread!!)
So it wasn't my intention to run back-to-back Jordana reviews, but really, I can't help myself because this liner ROCKS and I am so grateful that Cutiegingerbread decided to share its magical powers with me. I might never use another black liquid liner again (seriously, it's that good).
Jordana INCOLOR Fabu Liner in 01 Black (retail: $2.99)
For a better picture of this liner, please see the Jordana website. This little gem retails for $2.99 and you can purchase it directly from Jordana, Cherry Culture and, according to Cutiegingerbread, you can also get it a Walgreens (although my local Wags doesn't carry it. Waaah!). Also, according to the label, this liner is made in Italy.
As you can see, this is a felt-tip liner with a very precise point. I love this type of applicator for liquid liners because it's quite forgiving. Although there are other liners that have this style of applicator, what I really love about the Jordana INCOLOR liner is that the pigmentation is just so intense. This is a true, rich black and I love that even over shimmery shadows, the pigmentation holds true and doesn't get muddied when it mixes with my shadow. Also, I like that the applicator is firm, but not too firm. It's flexible, so I don't feel like I'm scratching my skin when I apply it, yet it's not the type of applicator that's flopping all over the place and impossible to control.
And here's what I really love:
It's always hard to show in swatches, but you can make the tiniest most precise line with this liner, or you can retrace your line and build on it for a thicker line. Either way, see how black it is? Love that!
I should also note that the above swatches were photographed AFTER my rub test (I took my index finger and rubbed as hard as I could across the lines for about ten seconds). No smudging or smearing! But the best part is that it removes easily with my regular cleanser! It's not going to be a pain to remove at the end of the day because it's not waterproof, yet it stays in place all day long for me (as long as I don't swim or cry, of course).
Also, if you saw my last Jordana review, I'm wearing this liner in the photos. Here's a pic to refresh your memory:
See how truly black it is? Even on top of that super-pigmented shadow!
I'm not one to wear liquid black liner a lot, but when I do, I am totally reaching for this one. I think it delivers the best of all worlds for me, so if your needs are like mine, I suggest you pick one up and give it a whirl. I don't think you'll regret it!
Do you already own an INCOLOR Fabu Liner? If so, do you love it as much as I do? I'd love to hear from you!
