Let me introduce you to my new love: Givenchy Parad'Eyes Fluid Eyeliner in 03 Blue Lagoon. It's an electric blue color that will be noticed, but since this is also a classic liquid liner with a tiny brush, you can draw the thinnest and most precise line to keep it subtle.
After years of using mostly cream and gel eyeliners, going back to a truly liquid formula can be a challenge. The brush scared me when I opened the tube the first time (to take these picture. The tester I played with at the Givenchy counter in Sephora was so gunky I barely looked at it). It looked too thick and prone to splaying, but before my first real use I smoothed it to a perfect little point and had no problems since.
A thin liquid formula requires a little practice but is the most rewarding in terms of precision and shine. I wondered if the shimmery finish of Givenchy Parad'Eyes can last all day. It does. Fifteen hours later, pouring rain in NYC and even downtown Newark (don't ask) were unable to harm this eyeliner. It stays on without flaking or smudging , and the electric blue shine looks fresh until it faces an eye makeup remover.
Bottom Line: Love.
Givenchy Parad'Eyes Fluid Eye Liner ($27.50) is exclusive to Sephora.
