Mary Kay's At Play Bold Fluid Eyeliners* ($12 each) is a new line of bold, colourful eyeliners, that are sure to excite the playful and young at heart. There are four shades in this new formula, and I have all of them today to swatch for you!
"Turn up the fun factor with this super-cool shade. Whether you go for a basic eye look with a fun pop of colour or an all-out, multi-coloured work of art, Mary Kay At Play™ has you covered with high-impact bold fluid eyeliners. The ultra-thin, flexible eyeliner helps create precise lines with colour that dries quickly and stays put to keep you on the go. It brightens eyes and provides dramatic definition that's easy to remove. Mix and match with any Mary Kay At Play™ colour for a trendsetting look you'll love." - Mary Kay
Mary Kay's At Play Bold Fluid Eyeliners come in simple, small tubes with white lids and clear tubes. You can easily see the colour of the liners through the tubes, making it really easy to pick up the right tube in the morning. The felt tip applicator can give a fairly thin line, but there's not too much flexibility to this applicator. It can feel a bit stiff, and it can pick up a bit too much product. The liner itself is a little bit thick, and it can take a few moments to fully dry on your eyelids. These liners wash off easily with a facial cleanser, but The Real Teal does stain my skin.
The four shades are:
Hello Violet: The pigmentation of this shade was okay, but I do wish that it was a bit brighter and more intense.
The Real Teal: This shade is just gorgeous, I love a good sea foam colour! However, the pigmentation was a bit weak. You can use 2-3 layers for a more intense colour. Be warned, this shade will stain your lids!
Blue My Mind: This shade was more pigmented than the first two shades. I love this royal blue colour, and I find it pretty easy to pair with a neutral eye.
Gold Metal: This shade is my favourite from the bunch, perhaps because it's the most wearable. This gold also had the best pigmentation, as you can see in the swatch photo below.
I think that these liners will definitely appeal to the young at heart. This isn't the best liquid liner formula I've tried, but I do appreciate the fun, bright colours. If you don't mind working with a few layers to get a bright, pigmented colour, then these could be a fun addition to your makeup bag. Have you experimented with colourful liners, or do you stick to the classic black?
