They now have new colours of this coming out in purple, green, blue etc so I said I’d write my long over due review in case anyone is thinking of buying.
Now this isn’t a glowing review and I really don’t like to write ‘bad’ reviews but if something is expensive and being heavily marketed as a wonder product then I think it’s only fair to give my review on how I got on with a product so others can decide if it’s worth buying.
So on first use of this eyeliner pen ,after about 50 clicks to get the product to come out, the gel was harder than I expected. I did find the angle of nib and how to hold the pen hard to get used to but I eventually got the hang of it.
The problem I had with this is the formula/consistency. It’s very thick meaning I didn’t find it glides across your lid like they claim. It dragged, making it very time consuming and hard to get a straight crisp line. Also the lash hugging claim didn’t work out for me. I find because teh gel is so thick it’s hard to get it right in without putting a lot of pressure on your lash line/eyeball! I can get in closer to my lash line with less effort with a liquid liner or creamy gel eyeliner with a brush to be honest.
It’s fast drying too, which, in theory sounds great because you avoid it getting on your top lid when you open your eyes but because it dries so fast it means it’s hard to go back over a spot without it dragging some more and then flaking all over your eyelashes/face. Not only did it feel dry and heavy on my lid after applying but it flakes off too. It’s just too dry a gel for my liking.
Oh and they have a special They’re Real remover for €19.50 which yeh it works but it’s nothing micellar water doesn’t do….again marketed to be a huge hype in my opinion.
I will say though that I love the angled rubber nib. If they changed the consistency of this product I think I’d like this a lot more and would possibly buy it. For €25 though I think you could find a cheaper and better gel eyeliner. I’ve heard Maybelline does a similar one that might be worth looking in to! Or I had one by Essence that came with a brush that was great but apparently it’s discontinued.
Have you tried Benefit’s They’re Real Push Up Liner? How did you find it? Yaz x
