I bought these two products because i was sick of paying hundreds of rupees for gel liner or liquid liners that dry up in a matter of days to months.For some one like me who doesn't wear liner on a regular basis, it is very hard to benefit from a product that wont keep even for a few months.The cake liner in itself is a pretty versatile product.It is a powder cake that you can use by wetting the brush with water. I have heard that some also use rose water for the purpose.It works the same as a liquid/gel liner.But using it with water possess some problems.The color ay off is not jet black, no matter how many coats you apply.Appear very matte, almost powdery and not long lasting.Also it transfers on my brow bone as i have hooded eyes.
The solution is to use a liner sealer to wet the brush instead of water.Kryolan's cake liner sealer works wonders.Makes the Aqua color appear darker , more glossy and very long lasting.There is a lot of product in the bottle and two small drops are enough to line both eyes.If you don't touch it, your liner will last all day, without smudging , transferring or flaking.Washes of very easily with soap and water.No make up remover necessary.The best thing is that this can be used to turn any eye shade or pigment in to an eye liner so you don't have to shell out money on multiple eye liners.I have demonstrated that with a golden pigment i had on hand.
