Beyu Eyeliner in No.10 Deep Black (Waterproof)- Review & Availability In India
I remember going to a BeYu counter at a local departmental store years ago in search of a good concealer. Minutes later, I walked out of that store with a BeYu highlighting concealer and one of BeYu’s compact powders. The quality of their products impressed me ever since; so when BeYu retracted their products from the Indian market, I wasn’t very ecstatic about it.
Incase you’re not aware, BeYu is a German cosmetic brand committed to the motto ‘Be true to yourself’. Now, after a hiatus of a few years, BeYu has re-entered the Indian market with huge range of makeup products. They sent a couple of samples for me to try and I’ll be reviewing one of them, the BeYu Liquid Eyeliner in Deep Black today.
Product Claims: The waterproof eyeliner with brush tip. For fine lines and precise application!Very high coverage and ultra-black texture. Special brush for exact application and a precisely intensified lid line.Perfect for swimming season or sporting activities. Fragrance-free and paraben-free.
Price: Rs 900/- ; Available at Lifestyle, Health & Glow, Central, New U and top beauty stores.
Like most other liquid eyeliners, the BeYu Liquid Eyeliner comes in a small, lightweight plastic bottle. The shade of the eyeliner is called “No. 10 Deep Black“ and is one of darkest, most jet black shades of eyeliners you’ll ever come across.
At the first instance, you’ll notice that the consistency of the eyeliner seems a bit thicker than most average eyeliners. It is also a bit oilier. Fortunately, this composition works in the product’s favour as it results in a highly pigmented black in the first application itself. The finish is a beautiful matte black so if you’re like me and love matte-black liquid eyeliners, you’ll absolutely love the result this eyeliner gives!
However, this is not to say that the process to achieve this result is not tedious. As much as the eyeliner itself stuns with its consistency, shade and finish; the applicator it comes along with is quite unimpressive. It is a brush type applicator with hair that is quite thin. Adding to that the thicker than usual consistency of the eyeliner, and you have a very delicate applicator that cannot retain its form during application. Also I don’t know if it was just my piece, but if you look at the picture of the applicator below, you can see the tip of the applicator is falling apart. Maybe if the brand can provide a felt-tip applicator in the future instead of this one, the whole experience can be quite a hassle-free one.
Beyu Deep Black Eyeliner In India
Coming back to the eyeliner, the product takes seconds to dry down into a matte finish. The brand claims it to be waterproof upto the extent that it is “perfect for swimming season or sporting activities”. And boy is it! The eyeliner is completely waterproof and smudge-proof. I have very oily eyelids so it is very difficult for me to find an eyeliner that does not transfer during the day. I’m thrilled to say that the BeYu liquid eyeliner more than qualifies the test. It has not once smudged, transferred or bled during the time I tested it. I don’t go swimming with eyeliner on, but I’m sure if you’d want to, this eyeliner would completely hold its own even during that.
Being such fiercely waterproof however, can have its drawbacks too. The fast-setting and ultra-waterproof quality makes it pretty difficult to correct mistakes so it may not be the best option for beginners. You will also need a very heavy duty waterproof makeup remover to remove the eyeliner. If you can get past these, the BeYu liquid eyeliner is one of the best liquid eyeliners for oily lids in India.
The BeYu Liquid Eyeliner is an intense, jet black eyeliner which results in a matte finish that is smudge-proof as well as transfer-proof. Added to that is its ultra-waterproof quality which makes it a boon for people with oily lids and watery eyes. The applicator it comes with does require some work and I hope the brand fixes it soon. But apart from that, the formula of the eyeliner certainly makes it a must to check out; especially those looking for a water-proof and smudge-proof formula.
Rating: 4.25/5 (-0.5 for less than impressive brush; -0.25 for difficult to correct formula)
