Sigma extended wear eyeliner

There's been quite a bit of hype and chatter about these, Sigmas extended wear eyeliners.  Available in 9 shades from Cocktail Cosmetics for £8.95* each.

I have the shade drift, which is the shimmery yellow gold shade.  I love the packaging, that they come in a cute little box :)

As you can see I used it to line my lower lash line.  It's a pretty creamy formula so it doesn't drag the skin too much, but it's best quality is it's staying power.  Eight hours on and it looks identical to the pictures above, no smudging, flaking or melting.  The photo's really don't do the product justice either, the colour is quite strong whereas in the pics, it looks almost muted (that's not what it's like in real life!).

It's not a wooden pencil but sort of plasticy, so I'm not sure how well it'll sharpen - might be better than a normal wooden pencil but I won't know until I come to sharpen it, I'm sure it'll be fine though :)

These liners are all paraben free too - it's actually really nice to see more and more brands start to make more of their products free from nasty chemicals - all we need now is for no makeup to be tested on animals and none to have any parabens or mineral oil in etc :)

All in all I really liked this eyeliner, I love how long wearing and pigmented it is, it really is good quality :)  I've always had great experiences with Cocktail Cosmetics too - I've ordered quite a few things from them in the past and delivery has always been quick and more importantly, well packaged :)

What's your favourite eyeliner?

  1. I love the Extended Wear Liners. They just don't budge at all and I wore them a lot in summer, when everything else was melting off my face. Great quality and quite reasonably priced. The gold really suits you xo

    PS. They are easy to sharpen with a normal sharpener and I actually prefer them to wooden ones :)

  2. This is so pretty, really want to give this a try I bet it's so quick and easy to apply.


  3. I adore the shade, looks so pretty on you (:

  4. I love that it is paraben free, I struggle to find eyeliners without loads of chemicals. Gorgeous colour too!

  6. So pretty! Sigma has some really great makeup products from what I am seeing in the blogosphere. I love their brushes, so maybe I should try the makeup too
