INGLOT Duraline is like my new favorite toy these days. I've been playing around with it a lot! The only thing I haven't done is mix it with a powder blush to make a cream blush or a lipstick. I should try that and see, no? ;)
What it is & How to use it:
It is a clear liquid with a cleansing oil-like consistency.
Looks so messy right? :). Cleaning them was a pain to coz Duraline made the eyeshadows adhere so well to my skin. I tried it with different eyeshadows: MAC, Maybelline & Revlon. I used the spoon to scrape off the eyeshadows =D. You can press the top of the dropper (top right pic) to release desired amount of Duraline, but most times I didn't need to press it at all. You have to mix & apply quickly otherwise it will dry up before you know it. Works well with all of them (I wiped off the green one by mistake! >.<) . *By the way, it works with glitter too.
The one in the top right is MAC Steel Blue pigment. I wore it mixed with Duraline today and I was quite happy with how easy the application was-without fallouts and it didn't dull down the color and finish of the pigment. Little bit of creasing after a few hours, but creasing is usually inevitable with my eye shape especially with cream eyeshadows.
After 4-5 hours
I used it with my dried up Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner. At first, I thought it felt too oily to be used with a liner, but after seeing it dry to an almost matte finish with the eyeshadows, I gave it a go...
It works! My gel liner is usable again! :). You can turn your gel liner into a cream eyeshadow or base too. Although you might have to spend more time removing the liner. It took me a while to get all that off.
**Just don't make the mistake of dispensing the Duraline right into the gel liner jar, otherwise you will end up with even drier/hardened gel liner. It's better to mixing them on the back of your hand each time.
The bottle is small & cute...
But I won't be using it all up anytime soon coz just a drop or two is need each time, and it's not like I'll be using it all the time anyways.
Priced at Rs.435.56. Actually the price on the box is Rs.490. Inglot reduced the prices of most of their products for some reason.
Like all Inglot products, Duraline is Paraben free & Not tested on animals.
All-in-all I think this is a great product! A must-have in some cases: To easily apply pigments, dried up gel liners, for glitter (Duraline is better than lipgloss or Vaseline for glitter), & making an eyeshadow base in any color you want. Hey, sounds like it's a cheaper alternative to MAC Paintpots :)
