Who doesn't know Silky Girl?
It is cheap and recommended everywhere by beauty bloggers!
I know this product from Stephanie Nangoi's review. Drooled at the cheap price (starts from 45.000 IDR, I got mine from Indomaret.) And I've been wanting to try gel eyeliner so I thought, "Heheh, why not?"
Since this is my first gel eyeliner, I was so amazed by the concept of the cap that can transform into the brush!

But later I found out that most gel eyeliners are that way, so I am not impressed anymore LOL. I thought today I and Macchi can do a duo-writing again, but she's too busy hehe. So today Mr. Blue will accompany me throughout the post!
"Hi, I'm Bwue...."
How precious/cute etc etc! We're talking about Silky Girl Gel Eyeliner by the way.
"I see, I see...."
"In-depth explanation about Silky Girl, pwease?"
Right on, Mr. Blue!
Just like my buddy Phanie said, the cream glides on the eyes smoothly; I can form the line on my eyes pretty easy. And the pitch-black is matte and strong; two elements I love most. However, like I said on my old post, GOD, THIS EYELINER GAVE ME ALLERGIES. I got a throbbing headache that I leaned back on my chair when I taught my students in class. I never have thought that the sharp pain was actually caused by this eyeliner.

That's okay, Baby Blue! I put that in just to maintain my status as a skincare detective *tilt hat*
But if you wanna know the result of the investigation.... Well,
Turns out that CI 77499 and Cyclopentasiloxane give low risk of cancer, while CI 77266 gives a moderate risk of cancer!
Silky Girl also contains Hydrogenated Oil (can be found in margarine and butter) and as we all know, it's dangerous if we consume it. It can give allergic reaction to some people (*cough*ME*cough*), but really, it depends on how sensitive your skin is.
But the fact of this product containing three ingredients that can trigger cancer are enough reasons for me to write how people should probably find another alternative for this product.
Well! I'm not saying that you should avoid it. Just be careful! If your skin not giving out bad reaction, just keep using it, but if it starts giving you itch, watery eyes, stinging, sharp sensation around your eyes/head upon application, then you'd be wise and stop using this product!
I'm still looking for a good, safe gel eyeliner too for my eyes. Macchi gave me Revlon Colorstay Gel Eyeliner and so far it doesn't give me any allergic reaction *phew*
Okay! I think that's it from me! Sorry for Silky Girl fans out there. I'm just writing this based on my personal experience, teehee.
"Oh~? It's over awweady?"
