Swatching and comparing

Posted on
 I suddenly had this wonderful idea of comparing all my black eyeliners by swatching my arm at the end of my day!

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Khol Black Eyeliner
Urban Decay 24/7 in Perversion
Urban Decay 24/7 in Zero
Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes 0L
Smashbox Limitless Eye Liner Onyx
Stila Smudge Stick waterproof eye liner in Stingray
Kat Von D Autograph pencil in Black Metal Love
Ulta Duel ended liner Black
Also please note every one of these black eyeliners came in a set, I haven’t bought just a black eye liner since I was 19 and it was Maybelline. These are also just the ones I kept.
Swatch #1 (with the flash on)
The R.S.E. Khol Black is comparable to the UD in Perversion in my opinion.
same swatch no flash
now lets swipe a finger over the liners just once
top half i swiped L to R
bottom half R to L
okay I’m pretty happy with most of these but after factoring in color and creaminess and how well they glide the Rimmel is quite on par with the UD and I have NO clue why the M.U.F.E. & Ulta liner is still in my box as they are dry as a desert and tug like mad! *off to the play box with them to draw whiskers at Halloween.
Then I decided to try 2 different eye makeup removers on them!
1 gentle remover and 1 waterproof remover
5 swipes across the bottom half with gentle remover
5 swipes across the top with waterproof remover
I seriously need to think about downsizing to what will be used and find out if any of my girl friends want some sanitized, re-sharpened black liners as I see the Stila & Smashbox getting new homes
