I have always been in love with felt-tip eye markers as they are super easy to use. Of late, I am using a lot of liquid eyeliners but, I do keep these eye markers handy for days when I am in a hurry! I got two eye markers from Physicians Formula as this brand has never disappointed me. Read on to see how the shade “ultra black” worked for me 🙂

My Experience with Physicians Formula Ultra Black Eye Definer Felt-Tip Marker:
Packaging: Physicians Formula Ultra Black Eye Definer Felt-Tip Marker comes in a huge box with all the details mentioned over it. The boxes look great, and you can use them as gifting items too. The felt-tip marker comes in a grey coloured packaging with a black cap. It looks pretty basic. It is sleek and handy, and hence, it fits in a little clutch for touch-ups. The tip is a very nice one, and the sponge is neither too thick nor too soft. It is just perfect for application. Also, the price is fine since most of the felt-tip eyeliners are retailed at this price.
Shade, pigmentation and feel on the eyes: Physicians Formula has a lot of basic black and brown shades in the range. “Ultra Black” is a black shade, which looks a little glossy on application. It is decent, but the pigmentation is not up to the mark. It has to be swiped a lot of times to get that desired black colour.
Also, I couldn’t achieve a perfect winged shape since I didn’t feel comfortable while using it in the outer corner of my eyes. I wouldn’t really call it an ultra black shade. It glides smoothly on the eyes and dries soon too. It does not irritate the eyes at all and is dermatologist-approved as well.
Results: The eyeliner does not smudge or fade but, you must be careful as rubbing it with your fingers may cause smudging. It is not a waterproof one, so beware of water 😛 It stays for a decent time of 6-7 hours and a touch-up after 3 hours or so can make it last longer. It also comes off very easily on washing.
Pros of Physicians Formula Ultra Black Eye Definer Felt-Tip Marker:
- Handy and easy to use.
- Ultra Black is a decent black colour.
- Dries sooner.
- Lasts on the eyes for 6-7 hours without smudging.
- Comes off easily.
Cons of Physicians Formula Ultra Black Eye Definer Felt-Tip Marker:
- The pigmentation is a bit poor.
- Does not help me in creating a perfect wing.
- Not waterproof.
- The marker has to be swiped a lot of times to build up the colour.
- Limited availability in India.
IMBB Rating: 3.5/5
Will I Repurchase/Recommend Physicians Formula Ultra Black Eye Definer Felt-Tip Marker?
I think I have used better felt-tip eyeliners. Although this worked well, I just wish it had more pigmentation. I would not recommend this.
Conclusion: This is one brand which is yet to come to India, I just love their face makeup products as they work really well 🙂
