do you believe in magic?

When it comes to beauty, eyes are my thing. I go nude {or, most recently, a very pale, blush pink} for lips, but eyes are a different story. Lashes and liner are dark midnight black, and shadow is a smoky, smoldering bronze. It's a trademark of sorts when it comes to my makeup routine - one that requires supreme control {after all, eyeliner can be a difficult thing to master - even when you're working with it day-in-and-day-out}. Never have I found a liner that I'm fully satisfied with. I've had flings with kohls, short-lived love affairs with creams, and flirted with pencils, but none have been offered a full-time position in my makeup bag. Given the fact that my quest for perfection in the eyeliner department has yet to be achieved, I was ready, willing, and oh-so able to give MIRABEllA's Magic Marker Eyeliner a test-run when offered the chance.


I am not known for my coordination - an inability that has crossed over into my liner application skills {or lack thereof}. I do, however, have excellent penmanship - a strength which served in my favor when using the Magic Marker Eyeliner, as the tip is synonymous with that of an ordinary pen, while the body matches that of my favorite ballpoint, making it incredibly easy to control.

I have had horrible bad experiences with marker-esque liners in the past. They tend to dry-out mid-application - resulting in a crooked line, and a lengthy wait time for re-grouping before you can complete application and move on to the next step in your makeup routine. That wasn't an issue here. The liquid was continuous and fluid from the moment that I placed point to eye, until the moment that I removed it {no drying}; and the color {Very Black} fully opaque after just one coat. Ordinarily I find myself unhappy with the thickness of my lines; but the precision tip {which is small and utterly perfect for creating a precise line} coupled with the continuous flow of the liquid, resulted in simplicity and serious satisfaction in the liner department - which, in turn, reflected in my entire makeup look.

Though I usually leave the cat-eye's for Lauren {Conrad}, the Magic Marker Eyeliner has given me the confidence ability to try the look out myself - and that's definitely saying something. Meow.

Have you tried MIRABEllA's Magic Marker Eyeliner before? What eyeliner is your favorite to use?

I adore eyeliners but can't remember when was the last time I used one. Lately I've been wearing so little make up that it's almost unbelievable.

I use khol pencils, because it´s been quiet dificult for me always to manage with an eyeliner...I´ll try to use that you recommend!!

SO glad to hear a positive experience regarding an eyeliner marker (I've had more than my share of bad ones)

This is now on my wish list! It's hard to find a liner which doesn't dry up in mid-application.
