Earlier this year SNSD came out with their single 'Twinkle' and I can't help but notice the girl's makeup, as usual. My favorite of the girls is the lead vocalist, Taeyeon. They were wearing this really sparkly eye makeup with distracted me throughout the whole music video and when I was done watching all I could think of was "Damn, I need a glitter liner!" lol
So after a while I realized in some of the scenes they are actually wearing round glitter plates on their lower lashline as well as on their lids! It's no wonder their eyes 'sparkle' so much when they move about on the dance floor. But I was set on getting a glitter liner anyway because I don't wanna bother with gluing them glitter plates one by one on my eyes. I have time, but not that much time.

In the end I found Etude House's Tear Drop Liner and decided to go for the silver one instead of the gold. I can't remember how much I paid for this but I guess it's about B$13.
I was really impressed with this range of liners from Etude House because they are thick and shimmery! Before this I've only tried Maybelline's and Silkygirl's (which sucks) so I wasn't expecting much but after swatching it in the store I knew I just had to get it!

The problem with the Tear Drop Liner is that it takes a long time to dry due to the thick consistency and it's also a bitch to remove!! I use makeup remover wipes and they just ended up getting all over my face and hands. Unfortunately I have yet to find a clean way to get rid of them by the end of the day when I'm removing my makeup. Also, when using this try not to get it too close to your eyes because I once got too close and well, let's just say I walked around with glittery eye balls that day. Not fun.
Apart from that, I think it's great if you wanna bring some focus to your eyes and make 'em pop. It's great for parties and night-time use when you're going out because this product is just glamorous that way. Here's my take on a makeup look using the Tear Drop Liner:
It may not be as eye-catching as the round glitter plates SNSD used for their music video but this saves you a lot of time from gluing the glitters on and being the efficient *coughlazycough* girl I am I like doing things the quicker way!
