Temporary Transfer Tattoos of Eyeliner.
They claim to be the magical cure to all eyeliner related problems; such as wearing away, smudging, and wonky lines.
You can get them anywhere and everywhere, from market stalls to makeup shops; pharmacies/chemists (such as boots) and the internet. The prices that I have seen range from 50p to £27 (although why someone would want to pay that much is beyond my knowledge).
I bought a few relatively cheap pairs of simple eyeliner flicks from a stall in a shopping centre. The packaging claimed a “quick and easy” application, but I found it rather difficult and time consuming. Being left handed, I started with my left eye as I always do when applying eye makeup. The first transfer I applied, or rather attempted to apply, stayed mostly stuck to the transfer paper. My second try worked slightly better – the whole transfer applied, except not quite in the right place. On my third and final try I thought I had finally got it right… but then I blinked and the transfer creased and stuck together. Having wasted half an hour and £7.50, I decided to give up. I removed the transfer and applied my felt tip eyeliner as usual, which seemed simple in comparison to applying the transfers.
The conclusion I came to is that eyeliner transfers are a complete and utter waste of time, but maybe that’s just me. Why not try them for yourself and find out? :) xo
