LinerLoot April 2020 Review
Here are all of our liners! This is quite the selection and I can’t wait to dive in.
There are tons of different brands in here too, from KVD Beauty to Eyeko!
Smashbox Always On Gel Liner in Fishnet, 0.03 oz – Estimated Value $15.00 (Buy a full-size 0.04 oz for $20.00)
I forgot to swatch this one, so I grabbed an image from one of Liz’s old reviews. This is a cult fave liner, so it has been around for a while! It was also the only creamy gel entry in our box this month. While I totally prefer a liquid liner with a marker tip, a creamy black pencil is always nice for a more smoky black look.
It is a nice true black!
Seraphine Botanicals Luna Liner Water-Resistant Liquid Eyeliner, 2 g – Full Size! Retail Value $18.00
This black marker tip pencil is from an indie brand I really like. The marker tip stays filled with black pigment and it is also flexible, meaning you can change the black line from thick to thin with pressure.
I am impressed at how dark this black liner is!
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in ‘Trooper’, 0.55 ml – Full Size! Retail Value $21.00
This black KVD liner is a cult favorite because it is a true black shade and has an always-ready-to-line marker tip. Just a little change in pressure allows you to go from thin to thick for that perfect black cat eye drama.
Wow! Just look at how black this BLACK liner is!
Girlactik Precise Marker Liner in ‘Black’, 1.2 ml – Full Size! Retail Value $20.00
This black liner is from another newer brand that I enjoy. Their sparkle balm toppers are one of my fave 2019 discoveries! As expected, this black marker tip draws a nice black line for a perfect black cat eye.
You can see how absolutely black this pigment is here in this swatch shot!
Il Makiage Inkliner in ‘Black’, 1 fl oz – Full Size! Retail Value $21.00
Here we have another marker-style-tipped black eyeliner. I love how minimal and clean the solid black packaging is. It makes the whole product feel edgier, you know? This flexible black marker-style tip allows you to draw on a super thick black liner or a delicate thin one.
Again, I am totally blown away by this black pigment!
The Beauty Crop Wing Woman Liquid Eyeliner, 0.05 oz – Estimated Value $12.50 (Buy a full-size 0.07 oz for $17.50)
This black marker-style tip is a little shorter than many of the others in this box, which makes me feel like it might be easier for a beginner. It also has less flex, meaning it is probably better suited to thinner lines or smaller wings.
SUPER impressed with this black pigment payoff!
Illamasqua Black Eyeliner
I couldn’t find out exactly which Illamasqua liner this was, but whatever it is, it is such a dark black! The marker-style tip is a little chubbier than some of the others, which lends itself nicely to cat eyes but less to lighter liner looks. Say that 3 times fast!
Are you kidding me with this black pigment payoff?! Wow!
Girlactik Precise Marker Liner in ‘Black’, 1.2 ml – Retail Value $20.00
The first black Girlactik liner in this box was so good, they sent a second! This black liner performed exactly like the first one, drawing a truly dark black line on my lash line for a fabulously black liner look.
Again, a great black eyeliner. It has a little bit of sheen to the finish which is quite nice and just enhanced how black the black pigment is.
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in ‘Trooper’, 0.2 ml – Estimated Value $7.64 (Buy a 0.55 ml pencil for $21.00)
Aw, yay! The folks at LinerLoot also included a travel size of that super-black KVD liner I liked so much from earlier in the review. This is the perfect black eyeliner for stashing in my purse to make sure I am never without black eyeliner!
Still blown away by this smooth black liner!!
Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner, 0.04 oz – Estimated Value $12.57 (Buy a full-size 0.07 oz for $22.00)
Finally, our last black liner is from a very familiar brand, Eyeko! Normally, Eyeko liners are on the thicker side, and this one still is, even though they call it skinny. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Did I mention that it is black?
Just LOOK at this dark black shade! STUNNING.
Verdict: My LinerLoot box has a value of at least $147.71 which is AMAZING for a $19.99 box. I couldn’t find exact info on the black Illamasqua liner, so that is even more potential value! For someone like myself (who really isn’t even into black eyeliner) this is a great box to make sure I have enough black eyeliner when I do need it and try new brands. I am glad I can compare all the different black eyeliners and pick the best black for me. I am so excited to have tons of black eyeliner options delivered each month and it is really peace of mind to know I will not be running out of black eyeliner anytime soon!
