Blinc Ultrathin Liquid Eyeliner Pen Review


What the company says: Blinc Ultrathin Liquid Eyeliner Pen has a .01mm brush that will allow you to create the precise look of your choosing. It cannot fade, run or smudge. Applies smoothly and intensely with no need to reapply throughout the day. Available online and at Sephora for $26.

My experience: The first thing I noticed was how incredibly thin the brush on this eyeliner is. If you're familiar with Revlon's eyeliner pen, Blinc's applicator is about a quarter of the size.

Application is easy and precise. This eyeliner has been ah-mazing for creating winged looks. The slim brush helps me get my wing just right every time. I can't say that for a lot of liners! I also appreciate how easily you can get down to that tiny space between your lashes and the edge of your lid.

The pigmentation is an intense black with a semi-matte finish. Results last throughout the day. You must allow it to dry fully before curling and applying mascara to lashes. If not, some of it will rub off. Once it's set, it won't budge. 

Blinc claims that you can rub your eyes or cry and this won't move. I'm going to call bluff on this one because every time I apply this eyeliner it does wear off from the inner 1/4 of my eye (nearest the tear duct) about 6-8 hours in. Also, I applied a swatch to my hand, allowed it to set, and it rubbed right off. I'm not an eye rubber, so this isn't a problem for me. As long as you are not messing with your eyes all day, your liner will last. 

PROS
  • Winged looks are easy with this applicator
  • Able to get down into the lash line
  • Highly pigmented
  • Results last all day

CONS
  • Price
  • I disagree with the claim that this won't rub off

Bottom line: If you love to wing it, you will want this liner in your collection.
