Mary Kay At Play Bold Fluid Eyeliner - Review

A bright streak of green, indigo or pink eyeliner can really make eyes pop for playful summer looks. Colorful eyeliner is fun and trendy this season and Mary Kay has recently launched 4 fabulous shades. Since I love playing up my eyes with vibrant color I was excited to enhance my traditional winged liner with these bold beauties.

The dramatic shades contain a subtle hint of shimmer and are available in: Blue My Mind, Hello Violet, The Real Teal and Gold Metal. The applicator is thin and designed with a flexible tip for creating fluid, precise lines. The formula dries quickly for long-lasting color and although they are not categorized as waterproof they hold up well in damp and humid conditions. They are also smudge-proof and tend not to feather or bleed.

Although I love the colors, especially the gorgeous teal and blue, the formula applies inconsistently at first appearing thick in some areas and thinly transparent in others. Some shades are easier to work with than others and the teal liner tends to stain skin. To achieve solid pigmentation I go over my line a few times and once you have your line drawn the effect is pretty.

For those who are new to liquid liner or still in training mode, the applicators and formula is not the easiest to work with and takes a little patience to get the hang of. I recommend drawing on one layer, allowing the line to dry and then going over it with another layer, filling in spaces until the color appears consistent.

For a flashier look you can get creative and pair some of the shades together to create a multi-colored line or mix it up with different shades on the upper and lower lash lines! The liners retail for $12 each and you can find them on the website by clicking HERE.

  1. It's a shame the teal stains, it's such a pretty colour!

  2. I find these kind of uneven when first applied too, but I do like the price! I haven't seen a whole lot of colorful liners for this price

  3. i love all the new "youthful" products mark kay is coming out with. the purple looks nice!


  4. As much as I love colored eyeliners...I only have a black one LOL! :D I wanted to get some colored ones for summer, but I don't know if I will be able to do that because I always have to get something else instead :/ I like all four colors of the Mary Kay liners, they are perfect for summer! <3
