I love using eyeliners, especially to create wings. But, each time I use a gel or liquid eyeliner, I end up with raccoon or panda eyes. My solution to avoid this ghastly look is to use a liquid pen eyeliner instead. I have recently found this product called The Face Shop Slim Black 02 Edge Turn Eyeliner and it has already become my most favorite product from the brand.
• The tip turns 180 degree to make it easier for you to draw a consistent waterproof line.
• Pen tip for defined lines.
• Waterproof formula that stays smudge proof all day long.
• Quick drying formula and defining colours keep the eyes looking sharp all day.
How to Use:
Draw along the lash line and fill the gap between the lashes. If the tip splits, becomes clogged with powder or dries up use the enclosed mini tweezer to pull and twist the tip. This will help you to keep the tip fresh and new.

My Experience with The Face Shop Slim Black 02 Edge Turn Eyeliner:
I am big fan of pen liquid eyeliners. They are easy to use and travel friendly. Previously, I have used Maybelline Eyestudio Master Precise Ink Pen Eyeliner, Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eye Pen and many more. But, this product has become my favourite since last month. It lasts way too long for like 7-8 hours. And, even after hours, looks just like freshly applied.
The packaging is great. Cool black matte body with shiny copper text on it looks fabulous. I fell in love with the packaging at first site. They have provided a tiny little tweezer to get rid of split hair fibres from tip that makes it even more cool!
This eyeliner imparts Bold, beautiful and dramatic dark black colour. The ink is super pigmented, No watery or uneven product distribution. The tip helps consistent ink flow and we get sharp and crisp lines, every time. It is brilliantly smudge proof. Once it is completely dry, you can’t get it off without the help of a good eye makeup remover. The Face Shop has a wide range of different types of eyeliners. This one is especially made for very thin delicate line. Its 180 degrees rotating tip actually helps while drawing perfect wings. It’s so flexible and easy to use that I feel like I am drawing wing on paper with a pen.
The ingredients list mentions few good natural ingredients that are good for delicate eye area. Aloe barbadensis (Aloe Vera) leaf juice is the main ingredient and it helps your eyes to stay cool. Another natural ingredient is helianthus annuus (Sunflower) seed oil and it helps to keep the eye area moisturised.
It takes hardly 3 minutes to draw perfect wings with this eyeliner. I start with my left eye place the tip in inner corner of the eye and draw a thin line along lash line, then I stop at outer corner of eye and draw tiny guideline dots for wing and follow them to get dramatic perfect wing eyeliner.

• It’s very handy and fits in the pocket or wallet.

Cons of The Face Shop Slim Black 02 Edge Turn Eyeliner:
