Woman Goes Viral For Posting Five-Star Review Of Eyeliner Because It “Didn’t Budge” After Car Accident 0

Anyone who wears makeup and is on the lookout for a new brand will know how useful reviews can be when deciding which one to settle on.

Yes, they’re pretty handy but rarely do they receive any form of viral attention.

Usually, unless the product being reviewed is from a celebrity’s makeup line:

But one particular review did receive an extraordinarily high number of views for a special reason.

And what was that reason? Well, the reviewer in question posted a five-star review of an eyeliner brand because – get this – it “didn’t budge” even after she was caught up in a car accident.

Her name is Shelby, and she is a registered nurse who posted a review of Kat Von D’s ‘Tattoo’ eyeliner on the brand’s website about eight months ago.

In the review, she wrote, “This product is truly amazing. June 28th I was pulled over in my car calling for roadside assistance when a distracted driver hit me going 55mph. I was taken via ambulance to the ER where I remained for eight hours.”

“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 eyeliner. I am posting a pic to show you, this product lasts and looks amazing through anything. Never buying any other liner again.”

And as promised, she did share a photo of herself in the hospital bed wearing the eyeliner that hadn’t “budged” along with a neck brace and smudged mascara.

So how did this particular manage to receive such widespread attention?

Well, it had a little something to do with the fact that Lahari Manchikanti, a student a the University of Florida, shared it on her Twitter page.

After the story went viral, Shelby decided to make herself known, saying, “It’s me. Girl, when you find a good product, you have to share the info.”

“As a registered nurse, I work 12-hour shifts so if I do wear makeup, I need it to last. I had worn the eyeliner many times but was still surprised it survive my 12-hour shift, an accident, and some tears!” she told The Independent.

“I took the selfie to send to my mom who was worried and in case the police would need it for evidence. I later posted it on Instagram to share my story and multiple people stated how well my eyeliner stayed.”

“I wrote the review later on after people commented about it on my Instagram. I wrote the review eight months ago on her beauty site so I never thought anything of it. I rarely use Twitter so when my notifications started going off I was so confused! Most people are supportive and laugh with me about it, which I appreciate.”

Many people expressed their sheer delight at the rave review on their own Twitter pages:

You can buy the eyeliner for $20 and, in fact, many people have suggested that Kat Von D Beauty should give Shelby and Lahari lifetime supplies. I mean, they did throw a hell of a lot of promotion their way, after all. Here’s hoping the brand get behind this very reasonable suggestion…
