Tried Tuesday: Paese Liquid Eyeliners

tt-paese-thI have a love/hate relationship with liquid eyeliners. I love what they can do, but hate applying them. It seems one slip, one unfortunate little shake and you have ruined a lot of hard work. That’s why I tend to avoid them. However, in the interest of finding the one that I can actually get along with, I have three to work with for Tried Tuesday, and they are all from Paese, in the form of their Liquid Deepliner, Liquid Eyeliner and waterproof Penliner.

There are three different products to choose from here, depending on your own personal style of liner. You can go for the easy to use, go anywhere Penliner, which is exactly like a felt tip marker for liner. Or you can choose from one of two pot and brush style products, which offer contrasting brush styles for fine or bold lining. All come in sleek, minimalistic black and white packaging, which I believe looks quite stylish. It doesn’t need to shout at you.

Here you can see the difference between the brushes, particularly showing the difference between the Deepliner and Eyeliner. The Deepliner is a dense felt tip, kind of like a marker pen, while the Eyeliner is a finer, flexible bristle brush. The Penliner is of course, exactly that. All offer high pigmentation, in a kind to eyes, non flake formula, which avoids nasty additives like parabens and alcohol, which can irritate the eyes.

And here are the swatches side by side, on the back of my hand, as unfortunately I only have two eyes, and three products. These are all just one pass, which shows the pigmentation. It helps, as I would never trust myself to follow the same line again on my eyes. Less attempts needed means less chances for mistakes, a big plus in my book. You can see the difference in lines between the two brush and pot options, while the pen is somewhere in between, though you can vary the width of the pen line by changing how much pressure is used.

Overall, I’m really liking these. They are giving me the confidence to work with liquid liners. While I am yet to really get the hang of the Deepliner, I am particularly liking the Eyeliner brush, and find myself popping the Penliner into my bag for to have with me when I am out and about. With three different options to choose from though, there should be an option to suit anyone.

All three liners cost €9.99 and are available from Paese stockists nationwide. A full list of stockists and an online shop is available at Paese.ie.

Manicure Monday: Paese Silk Nail Enamel Shade 371 – Pleasure

mm-paese-thI mentioned yesterday in my Something Else Sunday post that I would have something to show you from the new Silk range from Paese to show you today, and true to my word, I do! Today we have a lilac shade, numbered shade 371, and called Pleasure, though this is not listed on the bottle.


One of two new collections, the Silk range are described as beautiful soft shades. In the picture above you can see them alongside their sisters in the new pastel collection (the Silk ones are in the circle), and are beautiful neutral shades, running from nudes through to the lightly coloured lilacs. Coming in attractive square bottles, each one is 9ml, and the great news is that they are 4 free, so they have none of the nasties that may be in other polishes, like toluene and formaldehyde.


On to the shade we are looking at today, a pretty little lilac called Pleasure, numbered on the bottle as shade 371. It looks like a beautiful colour in the bottle, with a subtle sheen to it, which is created by the addition of pearl particles. Being a sucker for purples I couldn’t wait to get this on my nails to see how I got on with it, as I am completely new to the nail polishes from Paese.


The brush, seen here fans out nicely and spreads the polish well, but I am not a great fan of it. My problem isn’t exactly with the brush, but what it is connected to, the big square lid. I found that the size of the lid, and the length of the brush took a lot of getting used to, particularly with my weaker right hand, but I persevered and eventually figured out the best way of approaching it. And that means I can show you the polish actually on my nails, as opposed to painted across my fingers!


Here it is, pictured on my nails without flash. I’ll admit, as you see it here, I was slightly disappointed. I am so used to going for polishes that look shiny and glossy and had never considered a matte polish. But it is growing on me. I can understand why it’s done in a matte finish. It doesn’t need to be super glossy to be a genuinely gorgeous girly shade. It is just the right shade to show colour on my nails without being a glossy shouty look at me shade. I have been looking at it as being quite sophisticatedly understated.


Here it is though, pictured under the flash of a camera, which allows the light to hit the pearl particles. In the light I really enjoy looking at this polish, where it does have a sheen. Again it doesn’t need to be overly shiny. There will be times (a lot of them) where I want to have super shiny nails, but this polish has convinced me that there are other options out there, and I may just have to go looking for more of them.

Paese Silk Nail Enamels are €4.99 and are available from the Paese Website.
