I usually do not deviate from my dark gray, charcoal and solid black eye liners but when I got this navy blue eye liner from Sumita, I was excited. I hadn't tried a navy blue eye liner before and was interested to see if I could pull it off.
Surprisingly, it worked well for me. I used this color with a nice bronze eye shadow and a creamy highlight color just below my brow. It made the bronze really deep and rich and the navy pulled out some of the subtle blue specks in my hazel/green eyes.
The eye liner has a smooth application and it really only needs one nice thick line - you don't have to run it back and forth to make the color stand out.
I likely will not be purchasing it once the sample runs out because I don't wear it every day but it was fun to try it out. I may buy the black liner from Sumita, though!
This is one of those products that I feel like I am supposed to be completely in love with but I'm just really not. When I first saw the color, I was confused. Granted, this came in my first Birchbox but I am not a funky kind of girl and would never wear silver eyeliner.
That said, I gave it a try. The color wasn't right for me at all or my natural color palettes and worse the actual eyeliner was just disappointing.
The Cynthia Rowley Silver Eyeliner left my eyes feeling goopy and greasy. I followed the directions and lightly applied to my eyes but it clumped in my lashes and made my eyes feel heavy and watery. It's definitely a smooth application but a little too smooth.
I thought maybe I'd like a different color better but honestly, I don't think I would just because of the texture of the eyeliner. I have heard a lot about how great Cynthia Rowley products are - I am hoping that this was just a bad first impression. Maybe I will get to try something else by this brand that changes my mind.
