I Tried Winged Liner Stickers From Lady Gaga’s Haus Laboratories | Beauty Or Bust


This is “Beauty or
Bust,” where we test out the beauty world’s weirdest products to let you know if
they’re worth your money or a total bust. Today, I’m gonna be trying out the Eye Armor Kit from Lady
Gaga’s Haus Laboratories. Basically, this is a
$35 winged eyeliner set. It comes with a regular liquid liner as well as 10 pairs of these
little wing-tip stickers. So, the whole idea is
that you use them together and it’s supposed to
blend into one seamless, flawless cat-eye flick. I’m going to be evaluating
this kit for you guys on how easy it is to use, how the liner and the sticker
actually look together, and if it lasts all day. Wow, that is black. Nothing’s happening, right? That’s not fading,
that’s not transferring, that’s not smudging. These, the highlight of the whole kit. Let’s see how these actually look. Um, these are weird. Immediately, these are just weird. I guess the top one, the shorter one, is supposed to be, like, your
everyday cat-eye type of wing, and then the bottom one
is a little thinner, it’s longer in that I think it’s just supposed to be more dramatic. It says, “Eye Armor is
best used on clean skin.” Who is putting just eyeliner on their eyeballs with nothing else? Does that mean I have
to take my makeup off? Oh, my God, that’s my
eyeliner on my fingernail. All right, I like to always angle mine, like, up to my brow,
like, where my brow ends, so hopefully I can get it at the angle that I want it at. Why isn’t it sticking where
I need it to? [exhales] Oh no! [laughs] That is not the angle I want my eyeliner to be, sir, madam, lady. I had a feeling this wasn’t
gonna work with my eye shape because I have really rounded eyes and they’re a little more deep-set, so I have, just like, I don’t have a flat surface right here for the sticker to stay on, and I think that’s what’s happening. Whenever I blink, it’s,
like, coming off right here. OK. I think, I think, I actually got it to adhere. It feels like I have
taped my eyelid in place. It feels really weird. So, the stickers are on, and
this is what it looks like with just the wings. Honestly, I’m kind of into it. I would wear the stickers by
themselves on a night out. I think it’s a really cool Pat McGrath, editorial, runway-esque eyeliner look. However, that wasn’t
the easiest thing to do. Even though you’re probably
not supposed to do this if you wanna look young for longer, whenever I do winged eyeliner, I always kinda, like, pull it taut so I can get a really nice, clean line. When I do that, I, like, do you see how it moves the sticker? I promise, like, I’m not
this bad at eyeliner. It’s just like, why won’t you connect where you’re supposed to? What it is is that, like, when your eye is open,
and then when it’s closed, when you wanna draw the liner on, it, like, the sticker
stays exactly in place, but your skin moves, so the skin that is kind of under
it, when I move my eye, it’s gonna shift, if that makes sense. It’s like, at some angles it looks right, and then I turn, and then it’s
not connected, and [screams]. I think that filled in much
more nicely than the other side, but, like, I can see the
liner and the sticker, like, where I drew on the
sticker with the liner, it’s not the same color black. I feel like that’s as
good as it’s gonna get. This is the finished look with both the stickers
and the eyeliner on, and I’m really torn about my immediate reaction. Since this is a long-lasting product, I also wanted to wear it
throughout the rest of the day just to see how both parts
of the eyeliner hold up, so I’ll check in with
you guys later tonight and then come back tomorrow just to give you my final thoughts on the whole Eye Armor Kit. It’s not so uncomfortable that I want to immediately rip them off my eyes, but I’d also just rather
not be wearing them. On the plus side, though,
everyone I’ve run into today has told me that they love the eyeliner, they love the way it looks,
and, upon first glance, nobody realizes I’m wearing a sticker. It’s only really when you get in, like, up close and personal
that you can kinda tell that this isn’t real eyeliner. All right, it is officially time for me to take these
things off of my face. I’ve had them on for a
little over eight hours now. They haven’t gotten
any more uncomfortable, but they can certainly come off, so I just got a pair of tweezers and I’m just gonna try to peel them off and place them back on
the original packaging like it said to do, because, apparently, you can reuse them. So, the good news is it doesn’t look like my skin was left with,
like, any red marks. It doesn’t look like it was irritated, so although I felt kind of uncomfortable, like, I felt the scratching of the plastic on the corners of my eyes
every once in a while, it doesn’t look like it
actually, like, irritated and definitely did not
scratch my skin, thank God. I made it through a whole day wearing the Eye Armor Kit,
and just to be thorough, I even tried it out again this morning with the smaller little wings, and I have a lot to report. In terms of how easy this
product actually is to use, I’m gonna say it requires you to be more like of an
intermediate level at least to really get a good result. Looking at the wing
stickers first on their own, those take a little bit of finessing to actually get into the right spot and, like, the right angle in your eye. Looking at just the liquid liner itself, that eyeliner, although it
is gorgeously matte black, it dries so fast that you
have to work quickly with it. So not the most ideal kit for people who are just
starting out with makeup. I was actually surprised
with the overall look of this product, because
I really wasn’t sold that a sticker was gonna be something that was wearable throughout the day, but pretty much everybody
I ran into yesterday loved my eyeliner, kept
on complimenting me on it, and just made me feel
like I looked really good. The only drawback I really had about the look of it was
that it’s kind of unavoidable to get that little step
shape in your wing, which, from a personal standpoint, I do not like that shape in my eyeliner. I do think that this
is the type of product that’s gonna last you as
long as you need it to. For me, it lasted
definitely over eight hours, but I’m gonna say that most people probably aren’t gonna even
wanna wear it that long. It’s just not the most comfortable thing. On its own, the liquid eyeliner would be something that is worth your money, but since we are looking
at it as an overall kit, I have to call it a bust. I’m just not really understanding how the same person who
can do four outfit changes on the Met Gala red carpet can also come out with a product that performs like this. It just ultimately seemed pretty gimmicky, and I would expect a lot
more elegance out of her.
