Catrice Cosmetics eyeliner pen/liquid liner is probably the best felt tipped liquid liner I have ever used. Bold claim! I can back it up.
I’ve used a number of liquid liners from high-end brands to the lower prices. From MAC and Revlon to Essence and a R10 bargain buy in a ‘sale’ bin.
In this review, I will list my findings from packaging to application.
The Pen: The length is great. Small enough to fit in a smallish on-the-go makeup bag and long enough to hold it properly for the application. The snap cap seals the product very well. I’ve never had a dry tip.
The Tip: It’s a felt tip. It’s short and sturdy, it holds a lot of liquid. The liquid glides on so easily.
The liquid: The black is very black! So amazingly pigmented! It dries down to a matt and won’t move all day! It won’t scrape or flake away if you go over it a few times – huge plus!
Wear time: I find on my eyes it wears all day. I have worn it on my lids with no eyeshadow and it still holds up really well.
If you do happen to ‘draw outside the lines’ the clean-up is very difficult. Once it’s on the skin it’s on there.. so clean up is tricky, especially if you have applied your foundation first. Be precise and careful! This product will make you improve your application purely because you don’t want to clean up a mistake. lol.
