Looks fine, right? Of course it does. Did it work well on me? Haha no. No way. This thing gave me hell.
I already knew at the start, I’d have trouble. Felt tip eyeliners have never worked well on me. They’re OK, but after a long period of time or continuous use, it’ll irritate the hell out of my eyelids. So from the start this eyeliner and I didn’t have a good relationship. After trying it once, it was OK. It just didn’t work like I wanted it to. I had to layer another eyeliner product over this one, but I went with it. By the end of the day, the makeup was ehhh.
The second time I used it? Ha! I couldn’t even get more of the product on my eyelids the second time. This is what it looked like:
I just lined my eyes normally but the product would just slip off my eyelids. If this product is supposed to be “waterproof,” it sure isn’t tear-proof. This is the reason why I had to fill in the spaces with a different eyeliner the first time I tried this product. Because it just wouldn’t stay! It happened the third time I used it too. And I’m not going to use this eyeliner just to swipe on another over it. So I tossed it. I couldn’t use it. It made my eyes tear up more in the end because of the formula.
Yes, the felt tip brush was soft, and yes the product claimed to be waterproof, and yes it apparently was cheap in Malaysia. That didn’t sell it for me though. The application was really watery. Too watery. I just don’t understand how it was so difficult to apply this product the closer I got to my lash line! I mean, I tight lined my eyes beforehand too!
The product was semi-pigmented on my lids just because it kept moving around so much. Overall, it was just really annoying. After the liquidy formula finally dried, it became crusty! What is this?! Too liquidy at first and then too dry after. There is no middle ground!
I’m sorry, but when a super wet eyeliner gets into my eyeballs and sting them, that’s strike one. When the formula can’t mix together well to layer or blend, that’s strike two. And when the formula dries up so crusty that bits fall onto my eyeball, that’s strike three. IT’S OUT.
Has anyone had a good experience with this thing? I definitely didn’t. I know a few family members of mine have had different experiences. One broke out into a weird rash after using it for several days in a row. But another was absolutely fine. What gives?
