I will be reviewing one of my current favorite budget eyeliners today. It is from the brand Street Wear and I purchased it from an online shopping store a few months ago! I recently tried the shade Coal on my eyes and I’m pleased with the outcome! Since then, I’ve been using it so often. Do read my complete views on it below.
The liquid eyeliner comes in a small, squarish transparent glass bottle with a cap in which the applicator wand is attached. I expected an eyeliner brush but surprisingly, this one has a felt-tip applicator. (I guess it is or at least similar!) Unlike the flexible brushes, I’m not that used to felt tips however, I got hold of it after a few trials. It helps me line very sharp, thin lines on my eyes since the tip of the applicator is thin. For the price, the way they’d concentrated on the packaging part is excellent! With the comic prints, the looks aren’t also drab.
Coming to the color, Coal is a decent black shade with a matte finish. It’s not the blackest black but also not a kind of black that loses its intensity after drying. It’s a good dark-black eyeliner that stays the same even after hours of application. At least for 3-4 hours in humid weather and 6-8 hours inside an air conditioned room. One coat is enough to give you an opaque line; so there’s no need to re-coat for better pigmentation. However, it may look less intense after sometime if you just coat it just single time; so I re-apply it once it dries! It scores an A+ when it comes to pigmentation, which is great for a product that costs less than 100 bucks.
There are no glitters present in the eyeliner and it dries off pretty quickly as well. (Two qualities I check for in my daily wear eyeliners!) I was surprised to notice how long it stayed on eye eyelids. I wore it in the morning and it still was there in the evening. No fading; no peeling off. Nevertheless, you should see some smudge if you’re outdoors (Sweating!). This smudges easily and it’s easier to remove it just with your face wash and some splashes of water! So mind you, this isn’t a waterproof product but it stays LONG if you stay indoors.

It’s not very often that I get to find a wow product in the budget-range. And now I can safely say this eyeliner is one of those hit products! I highly recommend this eyeliner to eye makeup beginners!
P.S: The color rich eyeliner comes in another shade too (Egyptian Blue)! After hitting the publish button, I’m going to add it to my cart, too. Will do a blue eye makeup look with that in the next few days! Stay tuned. (I wish these were available in more colors! Why only two, Street Wear?)
