Violent Eyes Review

I purchased a pack of "Violent Eyes" (by Violent Lips) a couple months ago when there was a sale. I ordered Jet Black Glitteratti, and they included a surprise sample of Rainbow Glitteratti, which was super nice of them. They are temporary eyeliner appliques, similar to temporary tattoos. Once I got around to trying them, I found they were not as good as I had hoped. Measuring them to my eye was incredibly difficult. Maybe it's just me, but it seemed very arbitrary. Also, the backing is too thick, in my view. The thick backing makes it take forever for the eyeliner part to adhere to the skin. I had to wet each eye for about fifteen minutes each. I lost my patience, which is probably partly to blame for the fact that they didn't match very well. I tried to remove them before they were ready, but come on, fifteen minutes.

They don't feel too annoying once they're on. That worried me, but they aren't super noticeable. However, I got them to help my eye makeup be more symmetrical, but both times they didn't help in that regard, and it was worse than traditional eye makeup because there was no way to fix it without removing it entirely. There also was a certain fakeness to them. Especially the rainbow one. It looked pretty plasticky. They did last a really long time, though. If they could just make the backing thinner, I think it would help a lot.

If you'd like to see them in action, check out my video below.
