Hello beauties. I hope you all had a fab weekend. I spent mine having a great time with my family. Now it's time to once again talk about eyeliners. During the summer, I usually stay away from eyeliners unless it's for an evening out, as I usually just stick to natural makeup in all the heat. A while back I reviewed the Essence 'Stays no matter what' 24h waterproof eyeliner pen, and I didn't like it much. You can read my review to understand why exactly. So I decided to try out the Eyeliner Waterproof Pen from Catrice, and can say this one is much better.
It comes in your standard eyeliner pen packaging and has a pointed felt tip which is great as it lets me create thin lines. For thin lines, I carefully use the tip around my eyes and if I'd like a thicker line, I just hold the pen at a flatter angle. The eyeliner pen is available only in black, and what I really like about it is how deep the black is. You can easily achieve a thin or thick black line with just 1 application. The felt tip of the pen doesn't become soft quickly which means you can make a perfect flick every time you use it.
Staying power of the Catrice Pen Waterproof Eyeliner is great. I usually wear mine for about 8+ hours a day and it stays in place even when it is really hot. Waterproof wise, I'm not very convinced because I tested it under a string of tap water and it was fine, but once I started rubbing it while it was wet, it all just cleaned off.
So in general, I am quite happy with this eyeliner pen, but I would not recommend going swimming in it or rubbing your eyes while you've got a wet face.
