One of the goodies I got in my lovely package from Sparkling Pink was the Daniel Sandler Velvet Waterproof Eyeliner in Gray Velvet, which is a brand I’d been wanting to try for a while. It took me a minute to get around to using it because I was so busy playing with all the pretty eyeshadows and lipsticks, but once I really started test driving the liner – I really wished I had played around with it sooner.

Packaging

Daniel Sandler Waterproof Velvet Eyeliner Gray Velvet There’s really not a whole lot to say about the packaging – it’s pretty typical of the mechanical twist-up variety. It has a pretty fine tip, which I like. There’s also a band at the bottom to show the color of the pencil, which is handy if you’re looking through a whole drawer full o’ pencils to find a certain shade (as I usually am).

Color

Daniel Sandler Waterproof Velvet Eyeliner Gray VelvetGray Velvet is a dark, matte storm-cloud shade. In the photo it looks like there’s some shimmer, but that’s just some shimmery eyeshadow that stuck to it. I didn’t think much of the color at first, but it’s one of those things that unexpectedly turned out to be a staple. It’s dark enough to add definition to my lashlines, but not as harsh (and *ahem* aging) as pure black can be.

Texture, application & wear

Daniel Sandler Waterproof Velvet Eyeliner Gray Velvet swatchThe consistency of this liner is just a little harder than most of the other ones I use regularly (Rimmel, UD, Surratt). It still transfers pretty easily onto the skin, but it can tug a bit. It’s totally worth it though, because the harder texture solves a lot of the problems I have with other liners. The tip doesn’t deform if I accidentally press down too hard, so there are no accidental blobs or uneven lines. Changing the pressure on the pencil can give you a very soft line or a darker, more opaque one. Best of all, it doesn’t smudge or migrate at all, even with warm weather/sweat/long days.

In Short: Where have you been all my life?
