My New Signature Pen: Le Métier de Beauté Precision Liquid Eyeliner

Lately I've become obsessed with high-quality writing instruments...roller balls, ballpoints, fountains, you name it. This obsession has now spilled over to my my makeup drawer. Specifically, I've been drawn to liquid eyeliners that resemble my trusty pen. (BTW...at the moment I'm using an ACME roller ball!)

And I had no idea where to begin as liquid eyeliner is a brand new makeup category for me, and I was a bit intimated. However, last month Cafemakeup.com, one of my favorite beauty blogs, did a thorough comparison between Le Métier de Beauté Precision Liquid Eyeliner and two Hourglass liquid liners. Her review prompted me to purchase Le Métier de Beauté Precision Liquid Eyeliner as it seemed to produce a more controllable — and forgiving — thin line than the others.

Before purchasing, I tested the pen at my local Neiman Marcus counter. The sales associate applied it to one eye; I did the other. While it took two attempts on my part, I was able to quickly master the technique and achieve the look that I desired. Although, I'm still trying to perfect my cat eye...sigh.

All in all, I'm very pleased with Le Métier de Beauté Precision Liquid Eyeliner. Once applied, this liner does not budge until I take it off before bed. It's also very compact and will never need to be sharpened, which is perfect for traveling.

I'll continue to perfect my technique (and stock up on makeup remover), but at least I have my signature eye pen!

Purchase info: Le Métier de Beauté Precision Liquid Eyeliner is available at select Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Bergdorf Gooodman locations for $42.00. You can choose from three shades, including: noir (black), aqua, and bleu.
