La Femme Cake Eyeliner Sealer

I may never have to buy another eyeliner again. Ok, aside being slightly over the top and blasphemous, I did find a product that is just plain awesome. La Femme Cake Eyeliner Sealer.
What it is: a small little squeeze bottle with half a fluid ounce of eyeliner sealer. This is great, great stuff. More useful than liquid gold. Actually, pretty much everything is more useful than liquid gold. I mean, what would you do with it? Pour it over your cereal and eat it? But I digress.
Here's the thing. You can use this liquid to turn any loose or pressed eyeshadow into liquid liner. That means I have about 200 new liners to mess around with.

Here's a few examples:
And these are just cheap eyeshadows! All under $5. Heck, the LA Colors shadows are from the Dollar Store. But look at the way that teal ends up being a fantastic matte liner that doesn't budge all day and is easy to manipulate because it's thin like ink.
You just simple add ONE drop (it'll be enough, trust me) of the sealer to any cake liner or shadow and mix it. Preferably with loose shadows (scoop some out so that it doesn't contaminate the rest). On shadow cakes, it will kind of ruin the texture of the shadow, so you'll want to limit the spread of the sealer and just use it in one corner. The more shadow to liquid ratio, the more pigmented the liner will be. Mess around with it! I recommend using a really small angled brush or bend eyeliner brush with it.

La Femme also makes eyeliner cakes, and this product goes really nicely with those. Another similar product is Ben Nye's sealer. However, I found that Ben Nye's version wasn't as long wearing and the liner fell off (in strips too, like wall paper or something, extremely odd) mid day.
I wouldn't recommend this for the waterline, because it does sting a little. The best part about this product is the price. I bought the sealer for a mere $3.50! Since each application takes literally one drop, 0.5 oz will probably last me for years to come.
So? What think you?

  1. This is similar to my BE Weather Everything Liner Sealer, except about $14 cheaper. Lesson learned, right? Wish I'd known about La Femme way back when I bought the BE kit...but I do love my BE stuff.

    I bought it from MakeupMania.com, but truthfully their customer service is terrible. I've never had an online transaction have so many things go wrong. I found another site that sells it- Frendsbeautysupply.com but haven't personally ordered from them yet.
