I was recently sent an eyeliner from new-to-me brand, Glo & Ray, and to be honest I wasn’t expecting much considering the fact that I’d not heard of the brand before teamed with the fact that the products are so cheap. Clearly I’m a snob who knows nothing as the Sky Breaker Lasting Silky Eyeliners are extremely good.
There are six shades in total and I was sent Burgundy which is a gorgeous, warm, rusty shade with heavy plum tones. This is a fantastic shade for blue eyes like mine as it pulls the colour forward for a really flattering finish; to use the already heavily overused phrase, it makes blue eyes “pop”.
The liner itself comes in pencil form and the formula is extremely creamy and very easy to work with. It literally gliders over the eye leaving an opaque line of colour in its wake, making it ideal if you’re a bit rubbish at eye-lining like me. I would also imagine it would make a great waterline liner (although I haven’t tried this so don’t quote me!) as it’s got that khol-like creaminess. I hope this is the case as there’s a Champagne Pink shade that would look absolutely stunning on the waterline.
Out of the five other shades there’s only one I’m not keen to try (if you’re wondering, it’s Ocean Blue as I’m not really blue liner fan usually) as the shade edit is lovely and includes a standard black (Midnight Black), a neutral brown (Dark Brown), the aforementioned Champagne Pink and Ocean Blue plus Golden Age which looks to be one of those universally flattering shades that would slot into any eye look for a bit of additional enhancement. In conclusion, this has proved to be an extremely successful introduction to the Glo & Ray range and I’m currently lusting after the juicy shades of the La Amo lipsticks. It appears this is a well-priced, nicely edited line of make-up that’s definitely worth checking out. The Sky Breaker Lasting Silky Liners are £5.50 each here – link.
