AMW Reviews: Mary Kay Liquid Eyeliner Pen

The hunt for the easiest liquid liner to use for first-timers continues...
And I think I found a possibility in the name of Mary Kay Liquid Eyeliner Pen.

I have tested this product out for months so I have a feeling I'm almost "hitting the pan" so I guess I am 100% ready to share my thoughts on this.

Mary Kay says ---
This innovative eyeliner combines the ease of a pencil with the definition of a liquid for precise, no-mess results.
  • Easy to line, creating looks from delicate to dramatic.
  • One-step, smudge-proof, no-mess application.
  • Glides on without skipping, pulling or tugging.
  • Creates fuller-looking lashes.
  • Long-wearing, flake-proof water-resistant formula.


AMW says ---
  • Pen-type.  Extremely easy to use.
  • The felt tip makes it 100% eyeliner dummy-proof!  You can literally hold it like you are holding a pen.
  • You can create various types of lines ranging from thickness.  You can easily create cat-eye too!
  • Won't smudge or smear mid-day but can fade a bit.
  • Can be easily removed by regular eye makeup remover or makeup wipes.
  • Matte black.  No shimmers.
  • Quick dry.  This dries up almost in no time!
  • Not widely available in stores near you.
  • You can't seem to know when the product is running out. 
  • The tip of the liner is not extremely fine so it is a bit difficult to reach some of the areas around the lashline. 
  • Only the shade black is available.  I don't mind personally as I've always been a black liquid liner user.

This product is almost an "Unsung Hero".  The Mary Kay Liquid Eyeliner Pen may not be causing waves over the Beauty World but I am proud to announce, this product works!  The liner appears matte black, a bit of the softer side as I can use it on a daily basis without looking extremely "strong" as compared to other gel or liquid liners.  The felt tip/pen tip makes it extremely easy to use.  One important trick I learn from this product?  This is the BEST product to cover "lash glue" when you are wearing falsies!  

  • Store liner flat on the table to prevent the eyeliner getting to the bottom (if stored upside down) thus you get a "dried up" tip.
  • It is best to tightline with waterproof eyeliner pencil.
  • Use an eyeshadow primer if you have extremely oily lids.
  • Apply using the flat side of the felt tip if you want to create "thicker line".
  • Use the tip in application to reach corners or to create a "winged liner".
Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
First-time or old-time liquid liner users who want to apply liner in the quickest possible way!

Closer look on the pen-type applicator.

The effect is matte black yet not extremely dark.  
It is more of a soft-black shade that works for day time use.


As for application, if I wanted to create thin line, I would use the "tip" in application connecting short lines.

AMW Wore Mary Kay Liquid Eyeliner Pen
If pays to tightline to keep the look "complete".

A thin line using only the tip of the pen.
This trick is perfect for everyday.

Once set, I tried rubbing my fingers extremely hard on the lines I've created!  First few rub didn't do a thing but after rubbing extremely hard (which I doubt you would do that to your eyes), the liner fades into a gray shade instead of smudging.

I prefer having "Faded" eyeliner than smudged liner anytime of the day!  How about you?

Sounds hardcore right?  But this is the best part, using a regular Makeup Remover wipes, I can easily remove the eyeliner with gentle strokes!


Overall, I am impressed!
How about you?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
