See it Through my Eyes
The pen liners are the first choice when it comes to daily business. The ease of use, packaging and grip is reason enough to grab atleast one in the stash for every girl. The needle shaped tip and sketch pen feel is simply a blessing. Alright am not going to kill the suspense here itself, lets head on.

As we know this is a pen style liner with a felt tip, therefore it comes in a pen form with a click lock cap. The body is glossy black with signature yellow color of the colossal range as the font color. The pen form liners have to have a good shut mechanism and this one has that, making it travel friendly to be carried along anywhere in your stash. The felt tip of this liner has a charm of its own; it’s so precise (0.4mm) that I mostly use it to draw a very thin line when I want my shadow to stand out. The tip is not only precise but flexible too. Flexible how? The tip is sturdy yet soft enough to draw the line across the lash line as per your hand movement without pricking the delicate eye area. Thumbs up for that. Most felt tip liners look like needle and behave like one when they prick the eyes. Ouch! This one is a blessing and my eyes are thankful Smile

Color Pay off
The pigmentation is commendable, it is pure black. When I use it for lining over the eye shadow. It shows up quite well with atleast two coats, without much fading. When applied on its own, it does pretty well in this department, the color shows up quite well and eyes get that definition I want.

Staying Power
This is a liquid liner and once it dries in a a few seconds or so it becomes completely smudge resistant. It stays as it is till I wash it. The longest time I have tested it was for a day I was out the whole day for about 10 hours and it stayed in place. I don’t need a makeup remover to remove it; a cleanser is good enough to take it out in one wash with gentle massaging motions around the eyes.

The finish is intense matte black. It is not too watery nor too drying, is it just what’s required. When I apply the liner over the eyeshadow it appears a bit faded but on second layer it shows pretty well and doesn’t crumble or flake. Drying is a breeze and you don’t have to wait with eyes closed under the fan Biggrin Creating a winged liner with this liner is so easy, the precise tip and pen grip makes things smooth. This is designed keeping in mind the beginner’s difficulty to create the winged liner look, so if you don’t know how get that flick, buy this and start practicing Smile
