Finally Mastering Liquid Liner?

Now, anyone with hooded eyelids will understand how painstakingly difficult it is to do any form of liquid/gel liner, particularly if a wing is involved. But, I may have found my answer in the form of Soap & Glory's Supercat Eyeliner Pen.

I don't know what it is about the shape of this nib, but it makes it so easy to draw both thin and thick lines, and allows for plenty of precision. When it comes to drawing that dreaded flick, the tiny point makes it really easy to take your time and fill in the gaps without making everything a big smudgy mess - what usually happens whenever I attempt eyeliner. Even though I don't enjoy doing huge winged liner on myself, this even makes doing a little cat flick so much simpler.

What's more, the formula is completely black and not shiny at all, and once it's dry it's going to stay there until you want it removed. Again, because of the hooded lids, I often struggle with liner transferring. But with this product it hasn't been a problem at all! While I still need to work on my technique, I have to say that this liner has totally saved me!

(Apologies for the rubbish photos in this post - we've had awful weather here and so I had to take them under artificial bedroom lighting!)
