I bought this Essence Superfine Eyeliner Pen after my Eye of Horus Liquid Define Liner ran out.
In the past, I’ve always found liquid eyeliner to be quite tricky to apply as I don’t have the steadiest of hands and they shake quite a bit, but I find that a pen-like style liquid liner makes application so much easier for me, and I have a lot more control over where the eyeliner goes!
This Superfine Eyeliner has quite a long, pointy felt-tip that allows the liquid to glide on smoothly, creating a thin sharp line. For bolder lines, I just need to add a few more strokes of the pen, but that is often when things go wrong, as the super long tip of this pen makes application a little more tricky than other pen-style liquid eyeliners with slightly shorter tips. The tip of this pen is quite bendy and flexible and doesn’t always end up where you want to put it.
The formula of eyeliner liquid dries almost instantly and doesn’t imprint onto my eyelids, and it definitely stays on all day or night. I find that if I missed a spot and need to go back over it, that it was no problem, the product just glided on smoothly to cover the gap without flaking or crumbling any of the existing product on my lid (unlike Benefit’s Push-up Liner).
I would consider repurchasing Essence Superfine Eyeliner Pen, but I do prefer to use one with a slightly shorter tip, as if find I have more control and precision with a shorter, more stable pen tip.
Quick Tip: Store the eyeliner pen standing upright on its lid when it’s not in use. This will stop the pen from drying out and will ensure that the ink flows down to the tip, always ready for use.
