Low-maintenance liquid eyeliner – basically, it’s a dream come true. This genius-y felt-tip tool delivers all the drama, precision and long wear of a liquid in a compact, pen format that’s a breeze to use. It’s water-resistant, smudge-proof and doesn’t skip or pull. We’re talking love at first line.
It’s no secret I believe Milani makes the best eyeliners when it comes to drugstore eyeliners. Whether it be kohl or liquid liners their liners are packed with excellent color pay off and the staying power is never disappointing. Since I prefer to use liquid liners I was excited to try out yet another one of their Eye Tech Liquid Eyeliners.
Since the release of eyeliner pens I have tried several different ones from different brands and the biggest downside to using this style of eyeliner is they tend to dry out really fast, I mean as quick as a month.
This eyeliner comes in a pen style with gold packaging throughout. What sets this eyeliner apart from other brands is it’s a lot shorter which in turn aids in better control and easier application, especially for beginners. Since it’s shorter I feel more comfortable holding it while I am lining my upper lash line. I can easily create thin and thick lines with better control.
The formula is also really great. The eyeliner is totally black and not a dark gray. It dries to a semi-matte finish and does not budge once it’s set, so it’s a great eyeliner to use in the warmer months or if you have oily lids. Although I do think Milani makes some kiss ass eyeliners, I do have a gripe with this one in particular. First of all you have to constantly shake this eyeliner to get the ink flowing which quite honestly seems a little ridiculous to me since I have never experienced that with any other pen style liners before. The applicator tip is tad bit too stiff so when I apply this on my top lash line it can look streaky and not as pigmented as the swatches look. So in turn I have to apply a few layers. Aside from the applicator this is great compact eyeliner to use if you are looking for a pen style eyeliner.
As you can see it’s not as pigmented as the swatches once it’s applied. I applied about 4-5 layers due to the streaky application.
