According to Kate Tokyo Sharp Lock ---

  • Super fine gel pencil. 
  • Shape up your lash lines and wing it your way.
  • Fine line ot the outer corner and fade-resistant
  • A rich gel liner with a super fine 1.5mm tip.
  • Available in shades BR-1 and BK-1

It comes in a very simple black packaging and it is indeed very slim to hold.

I got the shade BK-1 which is matte black.
The tip isn't sharp as most twist-type eyeliner pencil.  The tip is flat so I doubt I'll create a good winged liner with this.

Swatch on BK-1
Indeed, the product lives up to the name!  It does have a gel liner consistency and the shade BK-1 is super black!

Now here's the thing why I hail this pencil as the perfect pencil for tightlining, it is indeed waterproof, sweatproof and tear proof!  I can't seem to create a smooth line on the upper lashline like what I usually do with a gel liner or liquid liner!  I feel like I tug my eyelid a bit and create uneven lines!  Feel free to do this application if you immediately smudge the line with a smudger brush!  But if you want super sharp and even lines, I highly recommend to use  liquid/gel liners instead.

Why is this a perfect tool to use for tightlining and for lower lashline application?  The 1.5mm tip and size of the liner makes this a super easy tool to do so!  And using this small liner to tightline gives that instant Wide-Eye effect minus the obvious "you have eyeliner on" look!

The liner sets pretty fast so even if I wanted to do a bit of smudging, it magically sets and stays there until removal!  Well, not unless you have extremely oily lid or you have droopy eyelid --- almost all pencils do not work!

Overall, I'm quite impressed with this liner and will definitely recommend this for those who likes to use pencil liners!
