Review ★ Etude House Drawing Show Creamy Eyeliner + GIVEAWAY WINNER

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a fun Halloween (or Hallow's Eve, which ever you prefer) yesterday! I didn't do much aside from carve a pumpkin for a contest with my club (I only drew the gengar, and we didn't win anything OTL), and then go for all you can eat sushi at Spring Sushi in the AMC. I would have gone clubbing/partying if I wasn't sick = u=;;. If any of you dressed up yesterday, please let me know in the comments :D.

Today, I will be reviewing the Étude House Draw My Show creamy eyeliner. As much as I love gel liners because of their matte finish and long wear, I'm pretty lazy when it comes to using them because of the amount of precision required with a brush. However I started using this one because my Dolly Wink eyeliners have started to dry out :(, and I don't want to buy another until I find stuff I want on sasa.

(taken from the description on Jolse)
"Etude House Drawing Show creamy liner has an intense and vivid colour to enhance and define eyes for any look. Its smooth gliding texture and easy to control fine tipped brush makes for the most accurate application, and always results in clean and clear lines. Beacause of its easy use, this eyeliner if perfect for beginners. The waterproof formula adheres all day and night and holds up against sweat and sebum for long lasting wear."

I purchased it in BR401 brown (double shot), but they also come in the following:
- BK801: black, one shot (quick dry)
- BK802: black, double shot
- BK803: grey, double shot

I assume double shot means you can smudge it if you want a more smoky effect, or fix it easily if you make a mistake because it doesn't dry as quickly as BK801.

As usual, Étude House's packaging is adorable, but it was pretty difficult to get it out LOL. It comes in a generic pot, and a small eyeliner brush is included in the box. The brush appears pretty small because it has a lid on it, but you can put the lid on top to extend the handle! It isn't much longer than the brush that comes with the Maybelline gel liner. I don't know why, but I'm pretty bad at using the angled eyeliner brush, so I really like that it comes with a normal eyeliner brush. This type of eyeliner brush is good for beginners too!

The texture of the eyeliner is very creamy and smooth, so it glides on seamlessly! There's some glitter in it, but it isn't really noticeable. I've tried eyeliners that were tough to apply because of their drier consistencies, so the brush would pull on my lid as I applied it. As you can see from the swatch, the stroke is true to colour, and opaque. You can get a solid stroke in one swipe, which is a good thing because that means you use less product :D. It's easy to fix if you make a mistake too.

I've used this several times now, and I can honestly say that the eyeliner is long-lasting! I have classes from morning to afternoon/evening, and my eyeliner is always still in tact by the end of the day. It doesn't smudge throughout the day too! I think this eyeliner would work especially well for those whose lids get oily throughout the day. On top of being smudge proof, it is also waterproof! I'm not sure about swimming since I don't swim with make-up on LOL, but it will definitely hold up if you got stuck outside on a pouring day without an umbrella, or if you have a hardcore workout at the gym or something.

This review is pretty short, since gel eyeliners are pretty generic. However, Etude House's gel liner is a great alternative to the more expensive brands such as MAC or Bobbi Brown. It is drug store priced at around $9-10, so it is wallet-friendly too! The more you save, the more you can spend on other things :D. This product does everything it claims to do, so you are definitely getting what you pay for. I think I might buy the black one in the future ^^
