The Balm Schwing Black Liquid Eyeliner Review & Swatches



The Balm Schwing Black Liquid Eyeliner

I’m back with another The Balm product and guess now we have almost covered everything which is very famous and a must have from the brand. I will share their base makeup in coming week but for now the ever so famous The Balm Schwing liner. I wanted to pick this ever since I saw Huda Beauty raving this one often.

Shade – Schwing is really the deep dark blackest black liquid liner I came across, as claimed it is certainly the darker shade of Black liquid liner you can expect. Once it dries down it looks almost matte , I hate glossy black liquid liners and this is just what I look for in a black liner – not flat out matte but good enough not to have that satiny sheen .

Texture and staying power – The texture is right enough to get precise line in single stroke; however I do layer it again to even out. The felt tip is flexible and hence gives control to get the line required as per your liking. I have sensitive watery eyes; if this comes in contact with any water it just smears else it stays nicely for 6 – 7 hrs without fading or flaking.

Pigmentation – It is beautifully pigmented liner and is opaque in one single layer, I do layer it to cover each and every corner.

What I like about The Balm Schwing Black Liquid Eyeliner:

  • The tip is not hard and hence it is very easy to apply and get précised application.
  • The colour is pretty dark black and doesn’t have any grey tones to it.
  • The liners once set looks pretty matte and that’s the best part about it.
  • The liner is very easy to wash .
  • The staying power is good if you don’t have watery eyes .

What I don’t like about The Balm Schwing Black Liquid Eyeliner:

  • It doesn’t stand any humidity, even the smallest of sweating and it melts.
  • It takes time to set.

Ratings – 3/5

Recommendations – I don’t say that I completely hate the liner but it doesn’t stand any humidity or even a tear and just starts melting right away. I do love this liner and will continue wearing it if I know I’m not going out where I sweat and my makeup wouldn’t melt. The liner gives really nice precise application due to well designed tip and gives the flexibility to get any sort of line.
