Kohl Cake Liner ($22). They are both limited editions, but I only wanted one. How many black eyeliners can I use?
Kohl Cake Liner was inspired by old-school cake eyeliner. This rich powder formula can be applied dry or damp to create different takes on the smoky eye. Intensely pigmented and long-lasting, it goes on silky-smooth without flaking. Created just for Bobbi's Choose Your Black Collection, this limited-edition shade is yet another way to create dark and sexy eyes - or in my case, perfectly office-friendly eyes.
I asked Diron which of the two new liners he preferred. I wasn't at all surprised when he recommended the cake liner. It's a makeup artist's dream. I use it dry, and it provides a beautiful charcoal line that's perfect for a fair-skinned blonde. Dampen your brush, and you can create a intense black line. It's your choice.
Kohl Cake Liner can be used wet or dry. For a dry application, use the Smokey Eye Liner Brush (sold separately). Apply along the upper or lower lash lines for a beautiful, smoky look. For a wet application, use a damp Eye Liner Brush, Eye Definer Brush, or Cream Shadow Brush. Apply all over the eyelid as eye shadow or just along the lash line. I used one of Bobbi's liner brushes to apply the liner to my arm, drawing a thick line to show you the color when applied dry. I took my photo in afternoon sun.
I didn't have time to take photos of a damp (wet) application, but I assure you the color intensifies depending on how much water you use. This liner gives you choices. I love it. Diron was right. Bobbi Brown's Kohl Cake Liner is a keeper. Even though the compact is relatively small, this liner will last forever. It's a great buy.
You can find it wherever you buy Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. I purchased mine at Nordstrom
