Before you say anything, yes - we knew trying out a winged cat-eye flick with liquid liner in the back of a moving Bentley was ambitious at best, downright stupid at worst. But hey, we're nothing if not intrepid at Grazia, and we would also never let a little thing like common sense get in the way of putting a brand-new beauty product to the test. Even if that's a roadtest... in the most literal sense of the word.
We grabbed Grazia fave Alanoud Badr - aka Lady Fozaza - to try out Dior's new On Stage eyeliners for our weekly episode of Carpool Cosmetics, with both her and Digital Editor Olivia Phillips even attempting to layer one colour on top of the other, as inspired by the rainbow eyelids of the campaign. The results were, erm, a little shaky...
We did gave the pigments a big thumbs up, however, and noted that the felt-tip applicator - had we not been on the road - was actually super-easy to use. Alanoud also gave a shout out to the chic matte finish.
So, yes: a disclaimer - although we didn't end up achieving Bella levels of rainbow perfection as seen in the above, we did learn this: Crayola shades are well worth leaving our beloved black behind for - if only for a special occasion - and always wait for a red light before you go in for a cat-eye.
