Review of Kanebo Testimo Shining Eyeliner by fleckenschnitte
To my knowledge Shining Eyeliner is a newly released product (for spring or summer 2005). Itīs a liquid eyeliner with a felt-tip applicator. It has a long handle so you will find it easy to apply it to your eyes. There is even a little fake Jewel on top of the handle which looks really cute.
There are 3 colors: Black, Brown and Purple. I have only Purple, but will get Brown next week (Will update when it comes).
The e/l is rather sheer, so it takes me around 2-3 layers to get the intensity I desire. But application is a breeze, I get an even line without any hassle and thatīs why I really like this e/l. It is not as shining/shimmery as you might imagine after reading the name. It has subtle shimmer which is really pretty. Overall Iīd recommend for people who like a subtle, rather sheer eyeliner. I donīt know if black would be more opaque though!
NW15, cool PPP
***UPDATE*** The brown eyeliner is a dark chocolate brown with copper/bronze shimmer. This eyeliner is really shimmery and looks very pretty so spice up a neutral eye look.
UPDATE: After about 1 month the liner started to separate (ie means liquid from the color) even with shaking the heck out of it there was only water coming out. Really disgusting. After like half an hour of shaking it I applied a watery line to my eyes and it burned like hell. I would not purchase the liner again!
