In my recent Korea trip I bought a total of 3 eyeliners, and long with another 1 from Japan, I’ll be doing a quick review in this post.
Some years back I had the chance to buy Bobbi Brown’s gel eyeliner during one of their sale, and I have been pampered, spoiled badly by this incredulous eyeliner pot that is extremely smudge-proof (trust me, I’m an oily babe in a humid world) and very nicely pigmented.
I prefer pigmented eyeliners (read: very obvious so I can try that winged look) that doesn’t smudge even after a whole day in tropical weather. I also want it to be fairly cheap (S$10) as I don’t really want to spend S$20 on a BB eyeliner all the time (and that’s AFTER a big discount!)
Based on that, as quickly as I can now, here are my first thoughts:
Etude House Proof10 Auto Pencil (brown): Touted to be easy-to-apply and suitable for the water line, this pencil is actually not easy to apply, and the color is rather subtle. However the staying power is quite strong so I guess it’s good for basic “no makeup” look?
BCL Japan Browlash EX Water Strong 24h Makeup Liquid Eyeliner (Deep Brown): Got this in Japan, it’s really watery as can be seen in the swatch. Not really to my liking….
Etude House Proof10 Geliquid Liner (Black): Dark. I like. Cheap too.
The Face Shop Ink Graffi Liquid Liner (Full Black): Ditto the above.
I haven’t tried out the last 2 long enough, when I do I will update this page again.
Meanwhile, stay beautiful!
