As the name of the product says, it’s a felt tip liner. I bought it when my Rimmel Liquid Eyeliner in the Blackest Black shade finally ran out (RIP). The felt tippy-ness of it means that as long as you put the lid on properly and don’t break the pen, there’s very little chance of leakage or of it drying out in your bag or whatever. The two I’m holding in the picture above are in Black and Teal.
(Please excuse the really tired face/skin and the horrendous hat; I was up ‘til 3 last night/this morning rehearsing for a Drama production.)
The nib - as shown in the picture above - also means that it’s incredibly easy to draw whatever kind of line you want, from Cleopatra-eque cat flicks to simple thin lines above the eyelashes.
My real problem is with the eyeliner itself. It dries incredibly quickly, yes, but it promises all day wear and doesn’t deliver. Not only does it fade really easily, but the colour isn’t thick enough at all and it goes all weird when you apply on top of foundation or primer. I remember one incident a few weeks ago; I put it on in the morning, and a few hours later, my cat flicks had faded, and the rain/drizzle had smudged the lines beyond all recognition.
They are really cheap (£2.99 each from Superdrug), but then, you get what you pay for. When these two finish, I will buy an expensive gel eyeliner and see how much difference there is. If there isn’t, then back to my beloved, mid-range-price, expensive-feeling Rimmel I will go; I wouldn’t recommend buying these ones.
