Tarina Tarantino Eyelicity Glitter Eyeliner
Tarina Tarantino Eyelicity Glitter Eyelines

Tarina Tarantino Eyelicity Glitter Eyeliner ($16.00 for 0.17 oz.) is supposed to deliver “smooth color payoff and excellent coverage” that is smudge-proof. It comes in three shades: Glitter Mist (micro iridescent pearl glitter), Magic Mirror (micro silver glitter), and Black Diamond (black liner with iridescent glitter).

  • Glitter Mist is a mix of iridescent pink, white, and silver glitter that’s more sheer than opaque. There’s lots of shimmer, but it doesn’t deliver a solid line of color. The glitter almost looks like flakies.
  • Magic Mirror is a gray and silver mix of glitter; it’s surprisingly not metallic–it’s a much darker gray/silver than your typical foil-like silver.
  • Black Diamond is a black liquid eyeliner with multi-colored glitter–I saw mostly green, blue, and silver.

The first two are more layering shades than ones to wear individually, though Magic Mirror could be worn alone, it doesn’t have quite the same oomph as Black Diamond does when worn alone. Black Diamond definitely has enough of a color base to be used alone, but it’s not as opaque as most black liquid eyeliners. I’ve been liking these more layered over my favorite eyeliners for added sparkle. You can also apply it over mascara, if you should so desire!

The applicator is thin, but the eyeliner can be a little thick, so I prefer to use a separate eyeliner brush (like the 208), especially since I applied it to the lower lash line.  Those with more experience with thin, liquid eyeliner brushes should find this suitable; it feels and looks much like the multitude of others do.  It’s not too long or floppy, and it’s very thin, so precision is possible.

It has a longer drying time (but still under a minute), which is more a minus than it is a plus. Once it dries, though, it didn’t budge. It will peel off if you pick at it (say you swatched it on your arm), but it’s not going anywhere with water (or tears!) or through regular day wear. I didn’t find glitter all over my cheeks or anything like that after wearing it for twelve hours.

For layering, these are fantastic, but if you're looking for an opaque glitter eyeliner, you'll want to look elsewhere. These just don't quite get there! Black Diamond is the closest but would still look better layered over a black eyeliner.

    Black Diamond looks really cool.

  2. Should the last image be this? http://www.temptalia.com/images/holiday2011/tarinatarantino_glittereyeliner009.jpg (Which is a really gorgeous photo, by the way! Love the lighting.)

    I like them but I don’t love them. Pass.

    Photos simply can’t do Glitter Mist justice! It’s been on my wishlist since my last trip to Sephora. :D

    I love the look of these, but I am just not skilled in wrangling glitter products. No matter what it is, eyeshadow, liner, whatever, it always ends up all over my face. So I’ll be skipping these. However, I have really loved some of the other Tarina Tarantino products you’ve reviewed lately, so I’ll be checking her out next time I’m in Sephora!

    I have black diamond and love it! Great payoff and opacity. Can’t wait to see more colors get introduced (I think I read that’s happening)!

    Would you say the MUFE liquid eyeliners are more opaque? They make a few with glitter in them (can’t remember the numbers which is why I hate the MUFE number system) and they are fantastic. Also, I really love the close up of the eye makeup in the last picture. What kind of camera do you use and do you use a remote clicker to take pictures of yourself?

  8. The Collection 2000 glitter eyeliners are still the best in my opinion. They’re also really cheap. It’s a British brand, you should really try it Christine.

    Christine,
    What do you recommend for an opaque glitter liner?
