Shelby says she spent eight hours in hospital after being hit by a ‘distracted driver’ – but despite her mascara smudging her liner stayed perfect
A WOMAN has left a glowing review for liquid eyeliner that “didn’t budge” during a car crash.
Shelby, a nurse from Boston, USA, says she spent eight hours in hospital after being hit by a “distracted driver” driving at 55mph last June – but despite her mascara smudging her liner stayed perfect.
Amused online shopper Lahari Manchikanti spotted the review for the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner and Shelby’s story has now gone viral.
In her review, Shelby even shared a selfie showing her lying in a neck brace but with an immaculate eyeliner flick still in place.
Calling the product “amazing” in her five-star review, Shelby wrote: “My mascara was running down my face from crying and all other products had been wiped off in the transfer to the hospital. But not my tattoo liner.
“I am posting a pick [sic.] to show you, this product lasts and looks amazing through anything. Never buying any other liner again.”
Sharing the review on Twitter, Lahari wrote: “Y’all I was really out here looking for a new eyeliner and look at this review lmfaooo She deadass took a picture in her neck brace I am deceased.”
Since then, thousands of beauty fans have liked, retweeted and commented on the post – with many deeming it the “best review” they’d ever seen.
Following the huge reaction, Shelby took to Twitter to defend her post-accident selfie writing: “Everyone’s hating on my review because I posted a picture of the makeup after the accident [but] 1. I took the photo for police evidence, 2. But have you ever seen such a good eyeliner?!”
