When we pick up eye liners, don’t we just pray that it is smudge proof? I have this natural instinct of rubbing my eyes frequently and, with eyeliner on, I look like a raccoon. Every liner that I have tried smudged within a few minutes because of this habit of mine. So, I was pretty sure that only marker pen like eyeliners would work for me and I always wanted to buy Lakme eye artist, but didn’t. Recently, I found out that even Oriflame has this felt-tip style eyeliner called Stylo and I ordered it from the January catalogue when there was an offer of 1 + 1 for Rs. 359, and Pooja sent me these brown and black ones. There are three shades available in Oriflame eyeliner stylo and the third one is a green one.
Price: One Oriflame eyeliner stylo would cost you Rs. 359, but since I got it on offer, I got two for the value of one.
My Take on Oriflame Eyeliner Stylo
This is the most convenient of eye liners that I ever used just because of its sharp and narrow felt tip. I am able to “tightline” as well as draw thick lines without much difficulty. I have a very unsteady hand and I am dyslexic at eyelining capabilities. So, this eyeliner is the perfect option for me. I am able to create just a narrow line as well as give a broad winged look and what’s more, it dries like within nanoseconds. Yes, it is smudgeproof, that is even with my frequent rubbing, it does smudge, but not badly. This eyeliner stylo is completely waterproof. It comes off with water pretty soon. Another thing of note is that you will have some difficulty using it in your water line, I am not even sure whether these eyeliners can be used in the waterline, I tried, but was not able to.
Coming to colour pay-off, the colours are not intense. The black is not jet black as is the case with other gel liners and liquid liners available in the market, it is black and that’s it. Same case with brown, not the darkest brown, just brown and I am not even complaining.
As far as staying power of the stylo is concerned, it stays on the lids for a good 5 to 6 hours without smudging if you know how to control your hands.
Pros of Oriflame Eyeliner Stylo:
• Felt tip helps you draw steady and precise lines.
• Perfect for “tightlining.”
• Both narrow and thick lines are easy to draw.
• Smudge proof.
• Dries quickly.
• Price is apt.
• It does not irritate or sting the eyes.
• Good staying power.
• Perfect tool for eyeliner/makeup illiterates like me.
Cons of Oriflame Eyeliner Stylo:
• Colours are not rich or intense, brown is not the darkest brown, and black is not jet black.
• Not waterproof.
• Cannot be used on water lines ????
Will I Get it Again? I want to try the green one and I will get the black one again.
IMBB Star Rating: 3/5 because colours are not intense.
