When I first started working with Pür Minerals their eye liners were on sale and on the way out to make way for a brand new formula and product - the Double Ego Dual Ended Eye Liner ($21.00 // ULTA Beauty). Eight shades are available and I have six of them to share with you today in Madagascar(khaki), Bali(emerald), Queensland(teal), Bora Bora(blue), Rio de Janeiro (purple) and Swiss Alps(taupe).

I was intrigued when I first saw the info and pics of the product. One side has a pencil tip while the other side is a liquid liner. So in one product you can get a dry liner look that you can line with and smudge out on one side and a liquid liner to add drama or intensity.

Formula wise the pencil side was a little dry for what I prefer. I had to be a tad more aggressive than usual when I applied to get the color to adhere but I was pleased that once I got it on it didn't budge all day. The liquid side was pigmented, easy and smooth. Working with the slim, tapered applicator was a breeze and the color lasted so well that even after I removed my makeup for the evening a slight stain was left over in the outer area where my cat eye wing was (but it was nothing another pass of makeup remover couldn't handle).

It's a well known beauty hack that when you use a pencil liner it makes it easier to achieve a more flawless look with a liquid liner. It's a fantastic way for a beginner to practice a cat eye and get themselves pro with a new formula. Even though I frequently do liquid liner I still like to apply a pencil liner to make sure the liquid line will be on point when I don't have time to mess around. Not having to dig around in my drawer for a coordinating set saves time and definitely saves money.

The swatches below are done on bare skin (dry, no primer):

If you check out the swatches the liquid liner side of Bali and Queensland are extremely similar. When I was swatching I had to double check myself because the colors are almost exact dupes. The pencil sides are very different so when you layer you'll achieve a different look.

What do you think of the new liners from Pür Minerals? Queensland and Milan are the two I don't have, they appear to be your basic black and brown shades. I will definitely be picking them up the next time I'm out at the store! Yes, even the black liner that I probably already have 5 million of.

Pür Minerals can be purchased at ULTA Beauty, Kohl’s and purminerals.com.
