It was around 600 Rs (INR)
I have loved TBS for a long time. The eyeliner was probably one of the very first things that I had tried from the brand. You know, when you are trying out a new brand, you start with the basics that they’ve got. So the store lady gave me a demo on her hand, how this was one of their best selling cosmetic item.
Though 600 bucks for an eyeliner seemed pretty hefty, but I decided to go ahead and give it a shot.
It comes in this sleek long cone like packaging which I absolutely love. The top is silver and it gives such a luxurious feel. Though once you use it, the prints on the bottle start coming off as it has in mine. 🙁 but nevermind, its the inside which matters doesn’t it?
This is a liquid liner which has moderately thick consistency which I actually like. The colour is very rich black. I mean it really brings out your eye make up as a liner. It has a felt tip as you can see in the pictures. I actually like felt tips because it gets much easier to apply the product precisely because well, eye liners can be a pain sometimes especially when you are in a hurry.
I find, this stays on me easily for 8-10 hours. This baby does not smudge at all. Like I am not even kidding, this just wont smudge and you feel like you have discovered the best product ever. As you can see in the swatches below, it has this intense colour, plus it looks really defined.
When I rubbed it vigorously, like literally rubbed it hard, this is what happened. Isn’t this amazing?
I have to remove it with a make up remover only, otherwise it would stay there noticeable till the next day 😀
Concluding, I would say this is an amazing eye liner, if you haven’t then you must try it out right away! As you can see in the pictures, I have repurchased this over and over and currently I have two of them 😀 As they say, once you start loving something, you just can’t have enough of it. 😛
1. Sleek packaging, easy to carry around
2. Felt tip liner, makes it easy on the application part
3. Intense black colour
4. Doesn’t smudge at all
5. Staying power is amazing
6. Comes in black, brown and Taupe shades.
7. Easily available at your TBS Stores
1. May be a little pricy for an eyeliner
2. I would have loved some shimmery shades
3. The print on the bottle comes off so you have no idea when you purchased the product or when the expiry date is, thus you need to memorise it when you buy it.
I say, this is one of the must try items from the cosmetic range of body shop.
