Review - Christine Cake Eyeliner


Today, the review is of Christine's Cake Eyeliner. This review was requested to me by many girls since I bought it. I think it is the cheapest eye liner anyone can have. 

Christine is a local brand. They have a good range of products. I haven't tried other things yet. I always wanted to try the cake liners, as I heard good reviews about them. Most of the makeup artists use cake eye liners too.

I bought this liner 2-3 months back. Since then I am using it where ever I go. I am very picky about eye liners, because I have oily eye lids. And, the liner area touches my brow bone, because of that my liner smudges or sticks to the brow bone, which is quite annoying. That is why I have to be very careful while choosing an eye liner. Gel liners never works for me.

I bought Christine Cake Eye liner for Rs.190 only. Which is quite reasonable. That is why I picked it up to try it out. It is a water based ofcourse. You have to dip the brush in the water and then work with the liner. You can go from light black liner to jet black too. Just dip the brush in water, tap off the extra and dip in the product.
It is quite pigmented. Easy to work with. You have to work a little bit more to get the perfect black color, as it is a cake eyeliner. If you don't mix the color well in the first place, you have to work a little more. Does not smudges, even on my oily lids (which is the best part). Easy to wipe off, without spreading because it is water based. I didn't find it smudging even on a hot day. It does stays for couple of hours. I applied it to a wedding on a hot day in April, and it was fresh and in place even after 5 hours.
I think, I should The result is worth the money. For girls who does not have oily lids, it will work even better.
You can see the swatch and the color of the liner. I have applied 2-3 strokes of the brush to get this color. Mix the color with the brush well once you dip the wet brush in the product, to get a nice black product on your brush. This way you will get a nice black liner.

That's it from the review. I hope you liked it. :)



  1. thanks for reviewing this :) lovely post.

  2. It smudges on my eyes :s And I have very oily lids!

  3. oh nice review, i always wanted to try this..but never did..i love my kryolan one :)

  4. nZ, you should add water more so that it doesn't smudges :)

    Thank you Shy :) I was going to buy Kryolon too, but it was quite expensive for a product to try :D

  5. hi Rabeeyah,
    Nice review:)I have heard that if a "mixing medium" is used instead of water with these liners,that makes them almost water proof.Kryolan makes such a mixing medium to be used with its cake liner.Has any1 ever tried it?

  6. Once again Nice Review \m/ am using Kryolan and cant live without it...:)

  7. Great Review ,I have oily eye lids as well I will try this out .At the moment I am using Maybelline Gel Eye liner & it is very fast drying & stays on place too.

  8. i was such a HUGE fan of cake eyeliner way back in 2008 , i still love krylon cake eyeliner time to time but not as much as i love gel liners.

  9. Thank you girls for the lovely comments. :)

    @Shahtaj, I haven't heard of the mixing medium. But, I will ask when I will go. If mixing medium is good, then what else do I need :)

  10. Cute blog! Loved it!

Review - Christine's Face Contouring.

Hello pretty girls!

Today, finally I am going to review about Christine Face Contouring powder. You girls have been requesting it for so long, but I wanted to try it and go out for hours, so that I can actually talk about it.
Let's get started!
This is the packaging of the contouring powder. It is available at Naheed Supermarket for Rs.250/
It will be easily available at any cosmetic's store, because it it not a high-end brand. 
This is how it looks like, it comes in different shades. At the back of the box, the sticker is of no.2, and at the back of the casing as you can see, it's no.1 :) Check the shade you want. I picked another one which had too dark brown shades. This one was the lightest. You can use this as a bronzer as well. I hardly use bronze because I look dark. But, for some reason, I am obsessed with bronzers these days and I want to try them from different brands. This is the first one I have and I kind of like it, as it is not too dark for me.

About the product:

[Review] Krylon TV Paint Stick - Orange

Makeup not only enhances your features, but also hides your flaws too!
Hiding my dark circles and finding the RIGHT concealer for the under eye circles has always been a BIG task for me. I have tried quite a few concealers, from different brands; none of them matched or could hide my dark circles properly. Until I came across orange corrector by Krylon.
