This months visit to the imaginary filing cabinet of posts past brings to light one which was inspired by a post from 2013 listing my Top Five Metallic Eyeliners. A liquid liner Which is always one of the first liners I go to if I want something a little more special than the traditional blacks and browns…
Couleur Caramel Liquid Liner in Plum (£16.00) is a great twist on a conventional liquid liner. Plum is a flattering, slightly purple-y toned metallic brown that looks great on all everyone but utterly amazing on green eyes. The metallic finish isn’t particularly intense (it’s more of a slight sheen) and so is a great liner for everyday office (or other dress-code strict establishment) wear. It doesn’t cause flashback on camera which is something that can happen with metallic shades.
The liner is reasonably long lasting although it will crack up a bit after a while. I have used this on bridal, photographic and beauty work and the colour alone gets lots of love every time. If you are using it for bridal work do be aware that it isn’t waterproof and so will run if subjected to a particularly teary bride!
Although I usually apply the liner with a separate liner brush, the applicator is pretty good as far as liquid liner applicators go. The long handle makes it easy to hold whilst not being too unwieldy and the felt-tip style tip is flexible so despite its relative stubbiness, it is easy to apply the liner and adjust the thickness of the line.

Plum liner is still very much a part of my kit. A product which admittedly isn’t used on the most regular basis, whenever I get an opportunity to use it I do; In fact it may work on a shoot this week…
Sadly there still aren’t a great number of liquid liners which tick both the organic and coloured boxes available on the market; Zao, Couleur Caramel and Boho Cosmetics are the three brands which immediately spring to mind (do let me know if you think of another). With eyeliner of all colours and styles continuing to be a thing, I’m sure there is a market for them is any company fancies taking it on.
How do you feel about Coloured eye liners? Have you tried this one?
