Beauty Review: Essence "I Heart Punk" Liquid Eyeliner

I bought this eyeliner from Priceline Online store. The eyeliner is a felt-tip style eyeliner pen and it's a bit thicker than something I would usually wear. I thought it would be cool to try something different though and I immediately thought of the eye-make-up looks that the likes of Amy Winehouse and Lily Allen used to wear. 

COST:
The eyeliner is a cheap brand that is available at some department stores. It was less that $5 at the store I bought it.

COLOUR:
The eyeliner is only available in black. When it dries it fades a little so I have to apply more coats if I want it to be a bold black.

STAYING POWER:
This eyeliner is not waterproof, but it does last all day without marking when you blink your eyes like some eyeliners do.

APPLICATION:
It doesn't go on as smooth as I would have hoped. It gets a few little bumps in it if you don't hold your skin really taut. Also, with my other felt tip liner I just stamp on the wings, but this pen is a little rounded so you can't really apply it that way. I find it a little difficult to apply and try to tidy any rough edges by going over the outlines with a thinner liner.


Overall I think this is a pretty good eyeliner for the price. If you are good at applying make-up you probably won't have any complaints, but if you're not used to applying liquid liner this is probably not a good product to start with. I really like the look it creates and I think I will definitely wear it a bit more.

Great review post. I don't think I've heard of that brand before here in Canada. A wee bit of eye shadow primer can sometimes help liner hold its vibrancy a bit better. If I really want to ensure that my black liner looks like coal, I'll apply black pencil liner then top it with liquid or gel.

I love black liner so much. It's unquestionably one of my top five favourite makeup items ever (it's very rare for a day to go by without me sporting it).


Wishing you a terrific weekend!

Thanks for the tips, I will definitely have to try that out. I am very much the same. I feel a bit peculiar without my top line done
