Lomeou 8 Colors Waterproof Eyeliner Pen Review
Thursday, 11 September 2014
This is the second product I chose from BornPretty Store to review. It is the Lomeou waterproof eyeliner pencil in colour number 6. I chose this colour because I thought the bronze olive color would be a unique and eye catching colour to wear on my lower lash line.
This pencil retails for an extremely cheap $3.72 on the website and comes in a wide variety of colours as you can see from the store image below. As always, use my code KIMH10 for a 10% discount on all items!
The pencil came wrapped in plastic and the packaging is simple and functional. It has a mechanical twist application which I prefer for eyeliners because I am too lazy to manually sharpen them!
On the other side there is a sponge smudger which I thought would be convenient for making the liner softer on the lower lash line.
As soon as I swatched the pencil on my hand I knew I was not going to be impressed with this product. The pencil glides on smoothly, but is not pigmented at all. I would say it is at 60% opacity? When I draw over the first layer, it rubs off instead of layering more pigment on because the formula is too greasy. When I rubbed over my hand, the eyeliner smudged! Therefore it is not smudge proof or waterproof, like it claims.
Another issue is that the colour is not close to the store image. It looks more like grey-brown than bronze olive.
I used the pencil to draw a winged liner on the top lash line and on the outer 1/2 of my bottom lash line. I used the smudger on the bottom and found that it was very hard and wiped most of the product away instead of softening the line.
The pretty eyelashes are also from BornPretty and you can find the review here.
Lastly, mere minutes after application, the eyeliner transferred to my eyelid! This almost never happens to me because I have dry skin, so I was quite dismayed. Imagine how this would go on hooded or oily eyelids! I tried setting the eyeliner with eyeshadow, but this made no difference and smudged to a half a cm below my eyes within 1 hour.
Overall, the good points about this eyeliner is the very cheap price and that it is easy to apply. The negatives far outweigh the positives though as the eyeliner is not the same colour as the store swatch, is not pigmented, transfers to my eyelids, is not waterproof nor does it last long.
I would not recommend this product. Hopefully next time I have better luck!
