Today I will be reviewing the Leanani Liquid Eyeliner in Black. This is the first product I have tried from this Japanese Brand. We all know how well the Japanese make their cosmetics, and I love how they always incorporate some sort of skincare element into their makeup. I first heard about this product through Miranda Kerr’s instagram as she uses it. We all know that anything she uses, I will be sure to try! I also know that she is into organic, skincare cosmetics. We all know the struggle to find a certified organic liquid liner that works! Because I only wear liquid liner on special occasions, I’m not too strict with ingredients. What sold me about this product is that it is a mineral eyeliner, free of tar based dyes, that contains skincare ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid to moisturise the delicate eye area and ginseng root extract to protect your eyelashes from falling!
Containing serum ingredients, this jet-black waterproof eyeliner gives your eye makeup long-lasting impact and drama. A waterproof eyeliner that is durable, long-lasting with attractive colour. The thin, marker-line tip is user-friendly. You can draw both tiny and bold eye lines.
• Strong waterproof. No smudging, running in spite of rain or tears.
• Dark black eyeliner with thin tip, gets dry quickly. Easy to deliver different styles of eye makeup.
• Moisturizing ingredients are used to provide nourishment to eye area.
• No mineral or coal tar oil. Safe to use.
*Suitable for all skin types. Safe for contact lens wearers.
Ingredients: Water, (ethylhexyl / methyl methacrylate acrylic acid) copolymer, BG, ethanol, ceteth -20, (acrylates / methyl styrene / styrene) copolymer ammonium, sea salt, hyaluronic acid Na, Panax ginseng root extract, succinyl atelocollagen, hydrolyzed silk, (alkyl acrylate / octyl acrylamide) copolymer, pentylene glycol, 1,2-hexane diol, caprylyl glycol, ethylhexyl glycerin, polyglyceryl-3 disiloxane dimethicone, hydroxide Na, EDTA-2Na, phenoxyethanol, carbon black.
Colour: This is a really rich black formula that gives off high pigment in one stroke! It sets to a nice matte finish in a matter of seconds!
Packaging: I love the felt tip and the size of it! It’s really flexible and thin so you can really control how big or small you want your wing. This makes putting on your wing so incredibly easy. It also doesn’t dry up whilst you’re applying your liner. I’ve had this for a while now and only used it a few times, but I still have a lot of product left, so I don’t think it would dry out fast.
Longevity/Performance: This is such a long lasting, smudge proof, waterproof liner. I wore this to an event and it didn’t fade or flake off or move one bit! It is also easy to take off with an eye makeup remover.
Feel: In the past, I’ve use liquid liners with a really thick formula that you could feel on your eyes and this has such a thin, lightweight and liquidy consistency that is just right (definitely serum like). I also have sensitive eyes, and this does not irritate them at all.
Where to buy: I purchased mine on ebay. It also relatively cheap (around US $20).
Overall, I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for an incredibly easy application and longevity with the added benefits of conditioning eye safe skincare ingredients.
