Hourglass Calligraphy Liquid Eye Liner

"Heart on her lips, and soul within her eyes
Soft as her clime , and sunny as her skies"
-Lord Byron

This is going to be my last makeup review of the year, so let's end it with my favorite product. Eyeliner! Don't be afraid, ladies... Want to look more glamorous in a few seconds?  Liquid eyeliner! So simple.. so perfect~*

I had previously written a review of eyeliners before.  Since then, I have moved from using the Bobbi Brown daily, to Stila's Smudge Pot. They're both awesome... but once I start using something, I usually stick with it... for a while...

For the days when I'm REALLY rushed ('Cause I'm always rushing around...), I use my Hourglass Calligraphy Liquid Eye Liner in Ebony. The eyeliner is quick drying and lasts all day.  Fast. Quick. Beautiful.

This eyeliner is like a felt tip pin.  I know I reviewed the LORAC Front of the Line Pro, but I actually prefer the Hourglass one. 
* I think the LORAC is great for people who like or are better with slightly flimsy eyeliner brushes.  It bends easier and isn't stiff.  If you like that kind of brush, then this is great for you.
* Personally, I prefer using firm-tipped eyeliners.  It's faster and easier.  You can get the same precise line in half the time. 

What it is:
A moisturizing water- and smudge-proof felt-tip liquid liner that contours and lines the eyes with precision.

What it does:
Calligraphy Liquid Eye Liner creates strikingly definitive eyes with a waterproof formula that offers all-day staying power. The line dries quickly to prevent streaks, smears, and transfers.

What else you need to know:
Calligraphy Liquid Liner is formulated with Pearl Protein and a botanical blend of Chamomile, Aloe, Rosemary, and Perilla extract to condition and nourish the eyes

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Phthalates

Retail Price:

*~ Have a Beautiful Day! ~*


  1. Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner is amazing... you should give that a try... we liquid liner invalids can even use it

  2. I reviewed the gel liner in my last liner review. The Hourglass is actually easier for people who aren't used to wearing eyeliner because it's just like a pen. Thanks for your comment!

  3. HI Irene :) I am a huge Smudge Pot fan...can't wait to try this liner. Great suggestion! :)
