Ipsy Gem Liner by Starlooks ~ First Impression

Hey guys!

Oh yeah!!! I’m back with this week’s edition of Ipsy product which is nothing than this pretty and glittery eyeliner in Ultra Orchid. I mentioned it in my last week’s ipsy unboxing post. I’m very excited to finally have the chance to do this first impression review on this eyeliner.

First of all, I’m quite satisfied with Starlooks makeup brand. I learned about this brand through ordering the monthly subscription glam bag from Ipsy. This week’s bag has the theme Girl Meets Glitter and believe it or not? I got almost everything glitter except the hair spray.

For today’s makeup look. I just use 3 makeup products:

Anyways, I did my usual cat eye look using this lovely ultra orchid eyeliner. Oh my goodness! It’s so soft and creamy. It glides so well and every stroke is magical. It comes with 6 gorgeous shades to select at Starlooks online.

Step 1 – I apply using my eye base and it has a golden metallic finish. I’m not putting any eyeshadow for this look since I wanted the focus to be the eyeliner only.

Step 2 – I use the ultra orchid eyeliner to glide and draw a perfect cat eye look. I apply it to the top lash and bottom lash too.

Step 3 – Next, I also did a tight liner on my top waterline. A tutorial guide on how to do a tight line will be up very soon.

Step 4 – If you have a white eyeliner, use it to draw a bottom waterline to make eyes looked bigger.

I can wear this both for day and night for a more dramatic look especially for this coming holidays. This gem eyeliner is smooth and creamy to use. This liner stays for a good 5-6 hours with an eye base.

Oh yes, a short note of caution is that it has those micro-glitters that migrates to the cheek due to rubbing. For those who has sensitive eyes, you might want to avoid this because the micro-glitter might cause some irritation to the eyes. If you got it in your ipsy bag and has sensitive eyes, I would suggest to just use it as an eye base instead of an eyeliner.

In terms of the pricing, it is a little bit steep for an eyeliner product and I personally will not repurchase because I prefer to wear my staple black liner color. But I’ll still continue to wear it for this holiday season or until I got tired of wearing it.

So, my question is would you pay $16.00 for this Starlooks eyeliner? Love to hear from you.

Thank you for reading.

I started by applying my eye concealer on top of the entire eyelid and under my eyes to conceal the dark circles under my eyes.

Step 1: Apply using the liner along the upper and lower lash line to form the outer corner. Start to glide it from the inner corner, and making it to the outer corner with a thin line stroke. I tried making the line thicker at the outer corner.

Step 2: Repeat the same step as above. Start from inner corner to outer corner and near to the lash lines. I did a reversed winged liner method in order to form 2 winged eyeliners. Clean uneven edges or mistake with Q-tips.

I use the long lasting eyeliner under my eyes by following the lower liner in step 2. This is to make my eyes looks more pop. That’s the 2 winged eyeliner look and we finished the two steps.

Step 3: By using the Jungle Fever eyeshadow, I apply the darkest green shadow on the eyelids and then pull the shadow longer to the outer corners. For a more daring look, I blend 2-3 times the darkest green on and the effect is a Wwwow!
