[REVIEW+ DEMO] the SAEM Eco Soul Power Edge Gel Liner in CranberryThursday, June 11, 2015
Ever have one of those days where you're like, "huh, I kind of want to rock red eyeliner today"? ...No? Just me?
...now I know that's a lie because you here reading this post. This is the result of a shopping addiction, paypal access, and jolse.com
I had never heard of this brand before and therefor have not tried any of their products but boy am I ever glad I gave them a shot. I don't know what came over me but while browsing Jolse (which I've been doing too much lately, they keep getting all my money!) I stumbled upon this gel liner and noticed that they were the only ones to carry a red (read: cranberry) colour.
Let that sink in. This beautiful CRANBERRY colour. Unf. Yes. So I bought it, got it, and am very impressed with it. The brush it comes with makes it very easy to apply, the gel GLIDES across my lid to create this glorious line.
- Quick dry type for clear makeup.
- Strong Waterproof for clear line.
- Creamy texture for soft applying and long lasting.
- Vivid colors with color intense powder contained.
- Paraben, animal ingredients, artificial perfume, talc, acrylamide FREE
Now I have no idea what acrylamide is.. google break! Google tells me this chemical can be toxic so I imagine (and hope) this isn't a common cosmetic ingredient but if you can shed some light on this ingredient, please do!
FORMULA: Glides on wonderful, great pigmentation on the first sweep and it's.. dun dun duuuun, LONG LASTING! YES! This baby stayed on my lids all night (I always wear primer). Also, it's waterproof (yay!). The formula is forgiving and doesn't dry as fast as say my beloved aqua creams however that means it's very user friendly and great for beginners as well.
COLOUR: It's true to its name and is a gorgeous cranberry red colour. This colour is GREAT for those with green eyes. Since green and red are contrasting colours, they each make the other stand out. Most people don't wear reds though so a cranberry colour is a great everyday wearable shade.
PACKAGING: The gel makes it home at the base of the container while the brush hides up top. It keeps everything intact and this means you won't lose your brush! Well... you still could but only if you don't clip it back in!
PRICE: It sells for $9.88USD/$12.8CAD (our dollar sucks atm) over at JOLSE.COM I think that's a GREAT price for what you get.
OVERALL: I love this product!!!! The colour makes it for me (I generally user liquid for blacks and browns) but there's a lot more play involved with a gel and play I will! I think it's a great price, great formula and gorgeous shade of red. Definitely recommend!
