Testing New Benefit Magic Ink Eyeliner

Benefit's New Eyeliner Is Pretty Magical

I was obsessed with dark brown liquid liner in high school. Years later, I've converted mostly to pencils, since I like subtle waterlining, but Benefit's new Magic Ink Liner ($20) is tempting me to switch teams again.

It's a highly pigmented black that doesn't gray out when it dries, I can waterline with it (although it does sting for a second), and it didn't flake at all, let alone smudge. The brush is also ultra tiny, which is good if you want more control or aren't used to liquid. So if you're tired of black liner that isn't really black, or you're done with the inevitable under eye smudges from pencils, Magic Ink comes highly recommended.

Goddessru, at the product launch, I actually asked one of the Benefit Makeup Trend Artists, Annie Ford Danielson, whether it was ok to waterline with it, and she said it was fine, so I'm taking her word on it.

Have you tried Mary Kay's liquid eyeliner, Bella? It doesn't sting at all when I waterline with it, and the felt tip applicator makes it much easier for me to apply than most other brands. Plus, I have it on good authority that new colors (including purple!) are coming soon!!

It stings? Well that's scary. I wonder if this is even safe for the waterline...
