I have been such a huge fan of Ipsy Glam Bag for such long time, but I haven’t yet tried a single product from em Cosmetics, or should I say hadn’t. So, when this waterliner came as a bonus products to be redeemed for the points, I instantly grabbed one in the shade nude. I am truly an eyeliner person, I have a huge collection of liquid, gel, pencil, felt tip and al kinds of eyeliners. But, truthfully, pencil eyeliners are my favorite because of many reasons, may be I will elaborate in some other post. So, I am sure you guys know, how a nude liner in your waterline can instantly brighten up your dull eyes. So, without further ado, let’s jump right in the product description by the company.

The waterliner comes in 11 different shades, ranging from the usual black and brown to some unusual yellow and turquoise. The liner came packed in a cardboard box. The liner in itself, is in the same shade which makes it easier to find one from the bunch. It’s a retractable liner pencil with a cap that clip shuts at one end and a smudger at the other end. The smudger side also has a transparent cap that fits snugly. The bad about some of the retractable liner pencils often is the fact that they tend to not fully retract back in the casing. However, the good about this eyeliner pencil is that it does that. So, the chances of damaging your pencil because of that come down.
The shade ‘in the nude’ is true to its name and is such a beautiful colour to be applied to your waterline. A nude shade in your waterline can instantly brighten up your eyes and make them appear bigger. Another good use of a nude eyeliner is as a base for your eyeshadow, which can bring out the colors better. The liner glides on easily, does not tug or pull and stays on the waterline for good 7-8 hours. However, most of the eyeliners stay on my eyes for good amount of time. A famous trick to extend your wear time from eyeliners in your waterline is to put some powder eyeshadow in the same color over your pencil eyeliner. On my medium Indian skin tone the shade ‘in the nude’ works perfectly to highlight my eyes.
