Sticker Eye Liner :: Super Idea Or Stick On Mess??

Posted Apr 10 2012 10:04am
I am still really enjoying the products that I received in my Birchbox of the month, so the other day decided to try the last product in the box that I've been hesitant to use.  Most makeup looks and products don't intimidate me, but this idea really did... 



{ Eye Rock designer liner tapes, $12.50}

I just kept looking at these things thinking to myself - A. there is no way these instant eyeliner tapes are going to look as good as real liquid liner, B. they can't be that easy to apply, C. no way they'll stay on 16 hrs.  So I was feeling a little adventurous after my daughter went down for her nap the other day and decided to give these things a go since I hadn't really done anything fun to my makeup that day anyway!

{Set of 4 eye liner shapes, from simple to dramatic.}
{The lash actually peels off in the shape shown, like a real sticker.}
I had a little bit of eye makeup on already this day, so I tried to wipe off as much as I could with a Qtip since it said to apply these on clean dry lids.  It probably would've been a lot easier to apply had I not already have curled my lashes and applied mascara, just FYI.   I had to trim the strip I chose a bit towards the tear duct area bc I felt the strip was just too long for my eye shape.  
 {Actually applying the strip pressing from tear duct to outer corner.}

{Comparison of sticker eye and non sticker eye!}

 {Both eyes completed.}

{View from above.  Not too shabby from this view.}
{Extreme close up of eye sticker.} 
It wouldn't stay put towards the inner tear duct and was slightly popping up, but was very secure on the outer corner of the eye.  This could be because I did have a bit of leftover makeup on before I applied and bc I had to cut the strip, who knows.  These honestly felt slightly annoying and heavy on my lid which I couldn't get used to throughout the day.  And as good as they look on camera (pretty freakin' perfect in terms of shape huh?!), I thought in person they looked obviously stuck on and not like true eye liner.  But my neighbor and hubby said it didn't look like stickers, so maybe I was being a bit too hard on the Eye Rocks!  Oh, and they peeled off very easily.
I did choose what I thought to be the tamest version of eye liner from the pack, when quite honestly once applied, is pretty dramatic in my opinion.  I'm not sure I would wear any of the other 3 out in public unless I was going to a costume party or really fancy dress up event!  Overall, if you have a large eye area and lash line, these would probably work fairly well for you.  But if your eyes are small with small lids, these are going to be way overwhelming.
So what do you think of the stick on eye liner tape idea?  Super idea or stick on mess?
