Very easy to use and does not look harsh. Nice little brush that comes along with it which makes it easier to keep clean lines. Highly recommend it.
I’ve been on the hunt for a zero waste eyeliner for a very long time, so I will do my best to give a detailed description for those out there searching!! What I used to use: KVD Tattoo Liner (i use my eyeliner primarily for top-lid winged/cat eye vibe) What I’ve tried: Fat and the Moon eye coal, Besame cake mascara, elate eyeliner (great but not fully plastic free), pencils, and eyeshadows. All, save for Elate, ended up on the hood of my eyes before the end of the day. While I use Elate for most of my swaps, I wanted a fully plastic free option for eyeliner. Consistency: paste-like, thick but easily spreadable (like toothpaste but smooth not sticky) Ease of application: It will take some patience. I’ve been meddling in cake mascara for eyeliner, eyeshadow as liner, eye coal (can you say panda eyes?!), etc. As a result, I feel fairly comfortable with taking my time to paint on eyeliner. If you’re familiar with a gel/brush technique, you’re golden! If you’re expecting the quickness and ease of a plastic applicator and felt tip, I would adjust expectations. Chances are though, if you’re here, you’re up for the challenge for a more sustainable option :) A goof angled brush (and maybe a fine tip brush if you’d like) is really all you need! Truly within 2-3 applications, I felt like I nailed it. I needed time to adjust to the thicker consistency of the liner. Smudge factor: Nada. Zip. Nothing. Literally floored me. I had one coughing fit where I stupidly rubbed my eyes as tears were streaming, and of course, that smudged. It isn't waterproof and that is well advertised. But just normal day wear/sweat/oil? Solid. Thus a winner in my book! Value: This itty bitty glass container is gonna last me forevvvvvver. Daily cat-eye peeps, just do it. It’s so so so much product! Final thoughts: It can look a little cakey once dry if you glob it on your eye, which I did at first. Once you’re more comfortable with the consistency, you will avoid that and learn to spread it more evenly (or maybe I’m just the newbie that sucks at it)! This is a great product! It is 100% worth giving it a try. I’m a customer for life!
I have hooded eyelids so It's very difficult for me to use natural make-up but this one does a pretty good job! I usually keep it more towards the corner of my eye anyways but once it is dry it sticks on there pretty well. Its not super dark black but I think its fine. I'm so happy to have a zero waste product and that I get to keep my wings! It does come off easily if you touch it. So if you have very hooded eyelids, you are very very oily or sweaty around the eyes, or you tend to touch your eyes a lot I could see that those types of people would have issues with this product. I also have super sensitive skin and it has not been irritating at all! Overall its great and it comes in an adorable little bottle that will probably last me at least 4 months!
It took me a couple of tries to figure it out but this is my favorite eyeliner that I have used...ever. love the ingredients, the packaging and it stays put all day. Love this stuff and won't go back to the drugstore brand.
I wear eyeliner and mascara almost every day so I thought I should invest in natural makeup and I was not disappointed! This eyeliner looks just as good as brand name eyeliner and I love the no waste packaging :) Would definitely recommend!
I have been searching high and low for a low waste liquid eyeliner. Most of them are too liquidy, not opaque, or smudge everywhere. I had high hopes for this one and I am not disappointed! The brush is similar to a typical drugstore liquid eyeliner applicator so it's super easy to use. The formula is thick, but not too thick. When I run the brush over the line I've already made, sometimes it thins out and wipes away, but if you just let it dry a bit, there's no issue. And, no smudging whatsoever! It dries down fast and stays put. Basically, I'm in love and will be repurchasing again and again!
