I'm a sucker for a liquid eyeliner, and always have three or four on the go at any one time. I had every single shade of Urban Decay liquid liner (until they changed the packaging to make it hugely unusable a few years ago, and haven't bought one since), and have been on the lookout for a range of affordable liners, in great colours ever since.
MyFace hasn't registered on my radar very much, I'll be honest, but my ears pricked up somewhat when I discovered that they have fifteen - FIFTEEN - shades of liner in their range to match their range of Bling Tone Shadows, and the news that they cost £10.99 each, which isn't a bad price at all, made my little heart go pitty-pat. Currently I'm in love with Illamasqua liners, but there's a limited range of (beautiful) shades, and they cost £17.50 each, so these are a bargain in comparison.
So, on with the swatches, of the 15 shades, three are mattes (a black, a brown and a white), and the remaining 12 are shimmery. I divided the shades into three groups, darks, metallics and blue-greens. First off the darks:

Onto the metallics:
Gilt-y is a bright yellow-gold, Tequila Sunrise is an equally bright coppery-gold. Silver Screen is a pale silver, Diamonds & Pearls is a pearlescent white, with just a hint of pink duochrome, and White Knight is a deeply opaque matte white. I found that Diamonds & Pearls had a slightly more watery texture than some of the other liners in the group, but nonetheless, it's probably my favourite shade out of this group.
Now for the blues and greens:
Bellbottom Blues is a lovely denim blue, Crystalline Green is a metallic sage with a hint of grey, Caribbean Queen is a beautiful cerulean blue, Limelight is a pale lime-green, and Black Ice is a metallic black with silber micro-shimmer. Caribbean Queen is the thinnest of these liners, and it's also the one that stains out of this group. I'm in love a little bit with both Crystalline Green and Black Ice out of this lot.
And here's how they all look together:
The liners have a thin brush applicator which easily makes either a thick or a thin line, and most of the shades are deeply opaque with one application, but there are a couple that need a couple of swipes with the brush to get them to show up properly. I haven't found them to run, and they will only flake if you over apply. They will fade over the course of twelve hours, but this isn't a problem.
Overall, I've been very impressed with my introduction to MyFace Cosmetics, what have you tried from the range?
MyFace Slinky Liquid Liners are available online.
