There are some instances that people mistakenly thought that I was either a Japanese or Korean because of my small eyes especially when I smile. Maybe few people might get offended but for me, it did not bother me at all. Actually, I even liked it. 🙂
Etude House Styling Eye Liner is a retractable eyeliner that you can easily twist and turn the product. I got this as a giveaway for being the August Commenter of the Month on Rarevanity. Hi! Ms. Gem! 🙂 But if you will buy this product, it retails for about 130Php and available to all Etude House Stores.
It’s a pencil yet creamy type of eyeliner so it glides on your lower lashline smoothly. I like the fact that it doesn’t hurt my eye when application unlike other pencil eyeliners that left me teary-eyed.
This is me with winged-eyeliner using this product. Looks precised huh? But no, I have tissue with me to clean the excess to make it look descent hehehe. I find liquid/gel eyeliner easier to use than pencil eyeliner in creating this look because pencil eyeliners tugs on my eyelid.
Oily face means oily eyelids to me. As expected, this started to smudge after 4 hours of application. It also transferred to my outer crease area so I have to check my face in the mirror from time to time hehehe. I guess I have to start using eye primer to make it last longer.
1. Cheap and has a nice packaging
2. Very pigmented
3. Has a creamy texture and gives you smooth application on the lower lashline
4. Available locally
1. Prone to smudging
2. Tugs my eyelids
3. Cannot be sharpened
Cost and perfomance-wise, this is very good start for someone who would like to add a pop of intensity into someones eyes. Just make sure to use an eye primer (if you have an oily eyelid) to make it last longer and to avoid smudging so you won’t be looked like a panda at the end of the day hehehe.
