I managed to lay my hands on Incolor Maxi Precision Eyeliner Pen in Jet Black from Fashion&You.
This is my second eyeliner pen, the first one being Oriflame Stylo ages back!
Price: I am not sure of the actual price, but remember getting this for INR 150.
Shelf life: 3 yrs.
The eyeliner pen comes in a glittery outer carton similar to Colorbar ones.
The pen is completely black with silver fonts.
The way I see it:
I hate stickers on any thing I have…this pens is no exception! This came rolled in God knows how many stickers.. those marks left by the gum of the stickers irritate me everytime I pick this one! Argghhh!
With any eyeliner pen, the first thing anybody looks out for is their tip.
This is also a felt tip pen, quite sturdy at that.
But sadly, it doesn’t help in lining thinner lines – medium & thick lines come effortlessly. I wouldn’t say thin lines are totally not possible too…. with a good hand one can get some decent thin lines too.
It ain’t the darkest black around too.
The best thing about this eyeliner is that it is both smudge-proof & water-proof.
Once set it doesn’t budge at all…
Below are the swatches in my hand.. I tried smudging them & ran under them in water.. with much rubbing I managed to remove 50% of the liner from it.
Another issue with felt pens are that, it dries up quickly.
This one lasted 3 months for me with irregular usage & I feel it has dried up now… I am not able to make a single line properly now with this.
The ‘Yay’ factors:
- Convenience of a pen
- Cap fits snugly into the body – totally non-messy
- Sturdy felt tip
- Simple to use
- Water-proof to good extent
- Very thin lines may not be possible
- Dries up over time (like any other pen!)
- Not really ‘jet black’ as claimed
