Black + Green Eyeliner


My collection of eyeliners isn't that big yet, but two of my favorites are a black eyeliner by Sephora and an aqua green eyeliner by Make Up For Ever! Combining these two eyeliners is something I like to do often because black and green go together wonderfully, especially if you have brown eyes!

I'm sure loads of people use many different colors of eyeliner, but I usually don't venture away from my favorite black eyeliner! Though it's way more fun to have colorful eyeliners, in reality I do not use them as often as I do black eyeliner. It's stands out and works well with my skin color. So, when it comes to liquid eyeliners this one by Sephora is currently my favorite! 


Sephora has branded this liquid eyeliner as "long-lasting 12HR wear" and this is certainly true. Though the content doesn't seem like much, I've been using this eyeliner for so long now! So, not only does it stay on your eyelids for a long period, but it also seems to contain enough liquid to use for an extensive period. Two major pluses in my book! Another aspect that I love about this eyeliner is that it has "highly concentrated pigments", all claims made by Sephora are true and more! Also, the flocked tip of the brush allows you to make a tight line easily. 


The Aqua liner in "Diamond Lagoon Green" (#4), gives off a beautiful and rich sparkling green color. Its tip is quite special, because it's made of foam!  Even easier to use than the black eyeliner by Sephora due to the tip and it gives off a lot of product. I would love to have more colors from this line, because they have that sparkle and combined with black eyeliner can create all kinds of beautiful eye looks! Important to add is that this product is fragrance free.

The swatches in direct sunlight and in artificial light. 
Both eyeliners have an intense pigment and give off enough liquid! 


A quick example of how I love to combine these eyeliners! One layer of each eyeliner next to each other. I tend to make both quite thick because that way it opens up my eyes even more and puts lots of focus on my upper lid! At times I change it up by putting black eyeliner on my upper lid and this green eyeliner on my lower lid! 


Make Up For Ever is sold at Sephora, but unfortunately Sephora is no longer available in the Netherlands and, as far as I know, doesn't have any stores in Belgium! But you can look up the products here and here! If you'd like to buy them, the best way to do so is by ordering them from the French site! I've been told that Make Up For Ever can be found in Brussels!

What are your favorite eyeliners?
