Eye of Horus Liquid Eyeliner

Where I got it: I was given this as part of a goodie bag I got from an event by FlauntPR a while ago. Eye of Horus is available from their website, or from a list of stockists found here. The eyeliner retails for NZD$ 39.00

What I got: This is a Liquid Define liquid eyeliner from Eye of Horus. The felt tip liner gives complete control and does not have any dial to turn or buttons to push for the formula to dispense, it is purely for the formula to soak in the tip. One really interesting thing with this liquid liner is that you can use a tweezer to pull out the tip and reverse it when the tip frays or becomes blunt. This is also paraben free.

How I find it: Remove the black cap to reveal the felt tip liner, I first tried it on the back of my hand (as above picture) and the pigment looks great. After a few more tries on my hand, I used it on my eyes. To my surprise, the pigment was really bad! Then I asked for help from Eye of Horus on whether my liquid liner has dried up so fast? I then learned that I need to PRIME the tip:  Take off the cap and turn it upside down to make a ‘cup’, point the tip inside the cupped lid and bend against rim which will draw the liquid to the tip. After that, I had really good pigment and flow! The formula is really dark and really easy to control and draw close to the lash line. However, after a number of uses, the pigment starts to fade and it gets a little hard to draw a good fluid line – I presume the ink is used up already?

Overall: I LOVE liquid eyeliners because my oily eyelids and no eye liner pencil or gel liner would work on my eyes without smudging and running. This liquid liner is great, it dries really fast on my eyes and the tip is firm enough to draw a controlled line but soft enough not to tug on my skin. I don’t like touching up my makeup during the day, therefore I love how this liner stays on my eyes all day without me having to check up on it. Removal is easy with cleansing oil and/or a cleansing water (I am using Aquamoist cleansing oil and Bioderma H2O cleansing water at the moment) without the need for harsh rubbing and tugging. However, my Dolly wink liquid eyeliner is still number one because of the calligraphy tip and the pigment.
