I was recently given the chance to try the new Inside Out 27hr liners from Mirenesse. I was fairly impressed with the performance of these on my upper lashline, and blown away by the pigmentation of the bright blue liner ‘Khnum’.
I’ve always shied away from using bright eyeliner but I found Khnum irresistable- so I wore it out on the weekend and am now a bright eyeliner convert (the makeup tutorial for that look will be up on youtube shortly).
One word of caution- the liners are very soft, and the tip can crumble off if you’re not careful while sharpening the liner (kept happening to my Khnum mostly). If you keep it in your bag on a hot day it will probably melt- so don’t keep these in your bag on a hot day
Khnum: Cornflower blue on STEROIDS. Full opacity in one swipe.
Atum: Deep khaki bronze shimmer. Buildable to full opacity in two layers.
Ra: Pink champagne. Sheer but buildable to medium opacity.
On the top lashline these liners last a good amount of time, with some minimal fading at the 6hr mark and a touchup required at the 8hr mark. Quite good for a pencil eyeliner, and on my oil slick eyelids it outperforms most eyeliners I’ve tried including MAC eye khol and the Urban Decay 24/7 liners.
I’ve never had much luck with pencil liners on my waterline, so I wasn’t surprised that these didn’t apply very pigmented on the waterline or stick around for more than a couple of hours. Only Bobbi Brown Gel Liner and MAC Fluidlines have any sort of success on my waterline out of the many many liners that I’ve tried.
Keep reading after the jump!
