Glam Republic Eyeliner Appliqués

One of the trickiest make-up looks to achieve is the strong liner look.
 Struggle no more with the help of these liner appliqués.
These black fabric strips are available in three sizes (thick, medium and thin) and come with the option of two finishes, either matte or sparkly. I adore both, but the matte ones have a velvety texture that looks incredible on the eyes.

 Apply them in the same way as you would false lashes.
When you remove the liner from the box make sure you peel off the backing card, I didn't and couldn't work out why it wouldn't lay flat against my eye!
Then add a thin line of the included adhesive and apply as close to the natural lashes as possible.
 The glue allows you a little play time to move the liner around before it dries, it does dry clear so don't panic if you make a little mess.

 I have taken a photo of the thin liner on a bare eye so you can see clearly how it sits.


I would recommend doing all of your eye makeup first, except your mascara.
 If you apply eyeshadow after you have applied them then the fabric liner tends to get a little dusty and wont look as great.
 Once in place, apply your mascara and then for a seamless finish use a pencil liner (Avon Supershock works well) inside the upper lid waterline to fill in any fleshy pink area.
Depending on the length of your eye or the look you are going for you may also need to fill in the inside gap with a black liner.

Now in all honesty these are good for people with quite a bit of patience. I have bad eyesight and got
frustrated, which Sam and Nic found quite amusing!
It's easy enough to get the thicker flick end down and positioned but the inner corner is tricky, so be sure to have some tweezers handy as it makes the whole process easier. Also be careful not to get the glue in the eyelash root as this will make the lashes look gunky!
Once you manage to get them on neatly they do look amazing and stay put all day.
 They come off with the help of an oily eye make-up remover and can be re-used several times.
Sam thinks that these may work well for those with hooded eyes that struggle with liner application.

  9. That is sooo cool! I bet it won't be availble in my country, though:(

  10. These sound oddly appealing - could you still wear a strip lash with them?

  12. Such a good idea! I love the strong liner look but my hands really shake when I do it so this will be so good to invest in as a back up plan!

  13. I;ve seen these but I dont think they would be for me because of course everyone has different eye shapes and sizes so how do they know who it fits...my eyes are tiny!

  18. Do they come out easily with the movement of the eyes? Do they stick on lashes and pluck them off when removing?

  23. These look really good, I may give them a go, if I can find the patience to apply them. I'm a nightmare when it comes to lashes as it is!

  24. Wow, this is such a simple to solution to the shaky hand application we all get at one time or another. Do you know if their available in the US?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I looked into who's sells eyeliner appliques in the US, and it seems Dior does at $59.00 for a set of 4 different styles.

  29. How handy is that, if you don't have a steady hand!

  30. Haven't tried them yet, however if I am not patient to draw a line with traditional eye liner I doubt if this is good product for me. ;) Looks stunning on you, have to say! I will practice my drawing skills. ;)
