My holy grail eyeliner (Physician’s Formula Eye Booster™ 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum) was starting to lose it’s pigmentation and was slowly getting dry every time I applied it, so I went out to find a new liquid eyeliner to try out.
I went to Shoppers Drug Mart and there was a sale going on for Physician’s Formula. Instead of the usual $12.99 pricetag, I got this for a nice $8.99 plus GST. I could have purchased another Eye Booster pen, but the design of this eyeliner really caught my eye. I love it when red and black are intermingled together.
The directions say to shake the product before using. I gave it a good shake and twisted off the cap which revealed a slim brush that accurately resembled the one shown on the side of the packaging.
My first time trying to apply it was rather difficult, as I was not used to a shorter handle and I haven’t used a liquid eyeliner in years. (I’m a pen kind of gal!) However, the second time I tried it, it was really easy to control and get that corner flick to create the cat eye look.
When applying on just one eye, the pigmentation is a dark black. However, upon applying to the second eye… the pigmentation decreased and started to streak and look more grey. I had to dip the tip of the brush back into the bottle to get it to glide on as black as the first eye. The liquid itself is a tad bit runny, but not too runny that it would drip everywhere. I let it dry and set after a couple of minutes. It also smells super delicious, but if the scent of vanilla is too much for you, this might not be what you want, as the smell is strong.
I kept the eyeliner on for a good 8+ hours. The eyeliner did not budge, however it did smudge a teensy bit in the corner of my eye due to moisture, but that was about it. I placed a stroke on my hand and did a smudge test with my finger. It smudged really easily. I ran the product under water and it did not budge, however after wiping, it was easily removable with the water. It’s not waterproof, but it’s water resistant, which is better than nothing.
What I really like about this eyeliner is that after removing it, it didn’t irritate my eyes. Nor did it irritate them when I was wearing it. I have sensitive eyes, so I’m grateful.
Overall, I recommend this eyeliner if you don’t mind having a non-waterproof product, and if you’re okay with dipping the brush back in to finish your look. I will definitely keep on using this but I am really curious as to how it will perform in humid weather.
