Duraline is one of those things so many of us have in our makeup stash but we never think to talk about it. It is such a handy thing to own. Bear with me, I know it doesn’t look much in the picture 🙂

 

First off, you can pick up Duraline from your local Inglot store, or they stock in on the website here It costs 12 euro and will literally last you a life time.

A more technical explanation of Duraline is as follows ‘Silicone polymer forms a breathable film while this waterless clear liquid transforms any powder into an intense and easy to use liquid.’

In my more lay man terms Duraline is an awesome liquid that you can add to eyeshadow to make them into coloured eye liners. 🙂

I chose this Body Shop yellow eyeshadow because it shows the effect Duraline can have.

As you can see it can darken lighter shades, so just be weary of that. However, you can always add some white shadow in to lighten it up a bit. It’s a bit like being a painter 🙂

 

You just need a couple of drops and you can tranform any shadow matte or sparkly, and it dries to a waterproof finish, so you don’t need to worry about it sliding around you eyes. On a side note, to save your eyeshadow, scrape it out of it’s pan and do the mixing separately because it will dry it out!

 

Duraline is also the best invention ever for reviving dried up gel liners/brow gels etc. Seriously it’s such a life saver. Again a couple of drops and your gel is as good as new.

 

You can add Duraline to foundations or concealers too if they are too thick or harder to spread. I saw on the online grape vine it can also help them last longer too. I’ve yet to try this method, but I will be definitely giving it a go in the future.

 

Because Duraline dries, I also find it great for adding glitter to the eyes too. I usually do this but adding a teeny tiny amount to a synthetic brush, apply a really light layer to my lid and then use the same brush to pat on the glitter and then your party ready!

 

In Conclusion (I feel like I’m back in college throwing that into a post 🙂 Duraline is such a handy and underrated product. Go get it 🙂
