Generally speaking, I can skip eyeshadow on a normal day but never eyeliner. It’s one of the things that could instantly change a look. Somehow my eyes look dull, tired and droopy when I don’t line them properly so I have to say that eyeliner has become a necessity for my work makeup, along with concealer and lip balm of course.
BYS Jumbo Tip Liquid Eyeliner Pen.
This liquid eyeliner pen features a large pointed brush – with a flexible tip for precision & control – which allows you to create thicker more dramatic lines or super thin ones depending on what you need. This liquid eyeliner also boasts a waterproof and smudgeproof formula so you don’t have to worry about it all day.
The BYS Jumbo Liquid Eyeliner Pen, as the name suggests, comes in a pen-like packaging. But unlike most pen eyeliners I’ve tried before, this one resembles a permanent marker than a typical pen. Although sleek, simple and easy to lug around, the packaging is quite big and chubby; and so as its applicator but we’ll take about that later. One good thing about the chubbier packaging is that it is easier to grab a hold of. I have a better grip of it, hence a more controlled application.
If I’m being totally honest, I was really very concern about the application. Seeing that the tip of the felt applicator is thick, though pointed, I was afraid it might limit the variety of lines I could create. I thought it would only be good for creating thick and bold lines. But to my surprise, with a little bit of practice, it can actually create slightly thinner, more precise lines. However, the felt tip is a bit too dry so it can feel a bit dragging when applied. Having said that, try not to add to much pressure when applying the eyeliner.
Photo of swatches above was taken the first time I tried BYS Jumbo Liquid Eyeliner Pen. You could see that I was struggling in drawing thinner lines. The photo below was when I was finally able to get better control for it. The key is to use the tip of the applicator in a right angle, not slanted.
The pigmentation makes all the struggle with the application worth it. I mean, seriously! It goes on jet black with just one swipe so I hardly have to go back in and add another layer. It dies quickly too so there’s only a small window for it to mess up your eye makeup when you blink too hard. And when it dries, it stay put of hours! It is not completely waterproof as it claims, but it does a great job in remaining intact for a decent amount of time just as long as you don’t rub your eyes.
Oh, and did I mention that GlamourBox is currently offering another BYS-exclusive box? Well, more about that next week. See you on my next post! 🙂
