BUXOM Pen and Ink Long-Last Eyeliner - Review, Photos & Swatches

BUXOM Pen & Ink Long-Last Eyeliner($20) is a long lasting, waterproof, liquid eyeliner and a new launch from the brand for spring. The liner has a unique tip that helps achieve a thick or a thin line depending upon the way its held and applied. The intensity also varies depending upon which side of the tip you choose to apply it with.

The liner comes in two shades, brown(Ciao) and black(P.S). What I have here is P.S, a jet black color with a slight sheen. I've always liked liquid liners with a sheen and this one has just the right amount of it.The size is just perfect without being too thick or thin, giving me a good grip over the product. The first couple of times, the tip felt a little scratchy on my eye lids but, it was fine after the third use. Be sure to run it a couple of times at the back of your hand before using it on your eyes. I also love how it gives me great control when I want to wing my liner out. Like most liquid lines, I use it on my upper and lower lash line and fill in my waterline with a pencil liner. The color is very rich and deep so, I like to keep everything else minimal. As for it being waterproof, it doesn't rub off easily with water or when I rub my eyes. But, it does have a tendency to smear a little with soap. It smears in a good way though, without giving me raccoon eyes. The lasting power was about 6 hours after which it starts to flake just a little at the corners. I needed a good oil based remover to get everything off.

Getting used to the tip and using it both ways can take some time to get used to, initially. But once you get the hang of it, this is a nice little multi-use product. The color is very dark and intense and will look great on just about anyone.
