I’m exploring the world of eyeliner pens, apparently. I first tried the Soap and Glory Supercat eyeliner last month. Unfortunately this has dried out as I lost the lid. Even though I didn’t even move from my seat. Talented.
It’s kind of funny that in the review post, I mentioned I always lose my pencil sharpener, so a pen that doesn’t need to be sharpened is a great alternative for someone as rubbish and irresponsible as me. Then I go and lose the lid. FML.
After losing the lid, I then lived in fear of it drying out for the next few weeks. Major fear because I look like a totally different human with no eyeliner. An ugly human. An ugly human that everyone hates and makes children cry when they look at it. I’m not even kidding or being dramatic. If the 5 makeup items tag was a 1 makeup item tag, eye liner would be the thing I pick over everything else.
The Soap and Glory liner slowly got less and less visible, until it got to the point of hardly ever showing up. I hope that it was the loss of the lid that did this, rather than it just having a short.. um… wet-life? Guess we’ll never know!
I mentioned this waterproof eyeliner pen in my Essence Haul last week and decided to give it a go after the death of the Soap and Glory one.
Naturally, I am documenting this experience for your reading pleasure.
It’s a simple black pen with a felt tip. It’s pointy so you can easily change the thickness of the lines by adding and removing pressure, as well as the angle you hold the pent at. I am sure that I am not using any of the correct ‘terms’ here. I’m rubbish at makeup.
It is a dark black, darker than the Soap and Glory eyeliner and also had much better staying power! The Soap and Glory one was good, but towards the end of the day it would be rubbing off, whereas this waterproof liner doesn’t budge until you wash it off. I even slept in it once (or twice.. naughty pants) and it was still more visible than the Soap and Glory liner/any pencil liners at the end of the day that I’ve used.
Although I am not that experienced in eyeliner pens (yet), this is definitely the better of the two I’ve tried so far! I’ve just ordered a new one to try out when this has ran out. I’ve been using it for a week so far and it’s still as good as the first time I’ve used it! I’m not sure what the life expectancy should be, but I’m hoping for a few more weeks out of it. Otherwise I’ll be going back to pencil.
Please tell me your favourite eyeliners!
