What is it? Rodial Smokey Eye Pen in Black is a kohl eyeliner designed to have the precision of a gel. The formula is richly pigmented, long lasting and easily blendable (as long as you do it fairly quickly).
Who is it for? Good for someone who wants their eyeliner to last all day without smudging. I’ve listed the ingredients at the bottom of the page so you can have a look for anything you might be allergic to.
How do you use it? Draw generously to the upper and lower lash line and along waterline as well if you want a heavy smokey eye look. Blend the line (using fingertip, cotton buds or a smudge brush if you have one) onto the eyelid and into the outer socket line to create a ‘winged’ effect. Smudge the bottom lash line to create a smokey eye look. Or use it more sparingly for an everyday look that will last all day.
What’s the damage? £17.00
Even though we are told to avoid black eyeliner as we get older, I far prefer it to brown or grey as the lighter colours make my eyes disappear. I like an eyeliner that I can smudge onto the eyelid so it enhances my eyes rather than be a big bold statement. This eyeliner pen (it’s actually a pencil) covers all my requirements.
The eyeliner dries pretty quickly so do one eye at a time. I draw a line across the top lid as close to my lashes as possible and then I draw a line from the outer edge of my bottom lash to the middle and smudge it in. I don’t go the whole way across my bottom lid as it makes my eyes look too small. It’s so easy to use even when you’re doing your makeup half asleep on a morning. It just glides on.
Just a quick tip if you get this eyeliner – put it in the freezer for about 15 minutes before sharpening!!
This is without a doubt the best eyeliner pen/pencil I’ve ever had. It’s so easy to use and really does last all day without smudging.
