An ergonomically designed curve grip liquid eyeliner that makes applying eyeliner mistake proof for those eyeliner beginners! Formula is quick drying and water resistant which means no smudging. Provides intense colour payoff for bond one stroke intensity and is super long wearing meaning there's no need to reapply.
As I am so accustomed to applying my eyeliner with a brush I found it a bit difficult and awkward to hold due to its curved shape. The shape is supposed to allow for better grip and such but I can't seem to master holding it even if my life depended on it. My index finger would always wants to stray away from the pink grip area. Applying eyeliner on my right eye was really simply but the most difficult part was trying to apply on my left eye
It features a pointy, felt tip styled brush allows for a sharp, smooth line and really helps in creating a winged / cat eye look. It also helps when you're applying liner towards the inner corner of your eye. To create a thin line you simply apply less pressure when drawing it on while adding a bit more pressure will create a thicker line.
If you love black eyeliners then you will definitely love the excellent colour payoff of this liner. It definitely lives up to what Australis claims as one stroke is simply enough to achieve a pitch black line. With the help of the felt tip it applies on smoothly without feathering or skipping.
I don't know what the average time for liquid liner to dry is but it still takes a few seconds to set. As I have hooded eyelids and lack of experience in applying liquid liner, I still had some transfer / smudging onto my upper eyelid right after applying. Great thing is once it is set, it does not budge unless you rub hard enough.
However the formula isn't really water resistant like it claims to be. When it is in contact with water and untouched it remains normal however as soon you as touch it, it rubs off so easily. Also if you have oily eyelids like me, then I don't recommend this. With my oily and hooded eyelids this liner ended up on my upper eyelid and could potentially give me panda eyes
I don't know how long it can potentially last for as it didn't do any justice for me. It would probably work better on a sunny, cool day but I don't really have much to comment on. While I was testing it it only lasted me around three hours... If you have less oily eyelids then this would probably last a lot longer.
Overall I'm not too pleased about Australis' Curved Ink Eyeliner as it didn't work well for me. I do like how easy it is to create a sharp cat eye look and the excellent colour intensity. However what let me down the most was its short long wearing power and the drying time as I'm quite an impatient person. I would probably give this another go when the weather is cooler and drier however I believe my $6 Etude House chocolate gel liner does a better job for less than half the price.
Have you tried the Australis Curved Ink Eyeliner yet or something similar?
