This is review will be on the The vamp stamp Vink Eyeliner Ink + Verge Angle Brush. I bought these products along with the Vamp Stamp (reviewed here).
A long wear, water-resistant eyeliner that allows for impeccable, precise winged results when using The VampStamp. The optimal consistency for flawless application, Vink Eyeliner Ink offers intense color saturation with a beautiful, satin finish. The Verge Angle Brush ensures you have all you need to Wing It with us. Color: Vortex Black.
My Experience with The Vamp Stamp Vink Vortex Black Liquid Eyeliner and Verge Angle Brush:
Much like the “cushion makeup trend,” this eyeliner follows a similar route. While we see tons of cushion foundations out there and lately even cushion blushes, I have never seen this concept applied to an eyeliner. The tub contains a squishy pad saturated with eyeliner ink which is designed to be be used with the Vamp Stamp (sold separately). I must say that the pairing of these two products is unbeatable! The eyeliner ink itself is very watery and thin hence the cushion holds it in place and all you need to do is dab the vamp stamp in it a couple of times to coat it entirely. The silicone flat area of the vamp stamp stamps the eyeliner easily onto the skin and since the ink is very watery it does not dry on the stamp too quick which if you use any other eyeliner (gel or pen) with the vamp stand tends to happen.
Now coming to this product as a stand-alone item for creating the rest of eyeliner from the stamped wing. I do not like it in this manner at all. It comes with a slanted eyeliner brush which I find draws a line too thick hence not per my liking. I have tried using it with numerous other eyeliner brushes in my collection and the biggest issue I have is unlike gel/pot eyeliners which coat your brush, this ink with it super thin watery consistency somehow soaks into my brush (yes even in synthetic bristles) and does not deposit nor creates a seamless line. I find myself needing to go back and forth many times before I get a saturated black line. Frustrated, I eventually end up using my other eyeliner pens to complete my eyeliner.
Since I only use this to create my eyeliner wing, it gives me decent staying power on that. If you rub your eyes, it fades easily. Otherwise, it stays a decent 6 hours before showing signs of fading.
Overall, while I love how this ink works with the vamp stamp, but I never use it to complete my eyeliner. Hence paying $20 for a product that is only good at doing half the job does not seem worth it to me. I would rather experiment with other eyeliners in the market and try to make it work with the Vamp Stamp than buy this again.
Pros of The Vamp Stamp Vink Vortex Black Liquid Eyeliner and Verge Angle Brush:
- Works really well paired with the Vamp Stamp which is a silicone flat tip.
- Does not dry too quickly when coating with the Vamp Stamp.
Cons of The Vamp Stamp Vink Vortex Black Liquid Eyeliner and Verge Angle Brush:
- The brush that comes with it is too thick for my liking.
- Does not work to create a smooth saturated black eyeliner when joining the stamped wing.
- Ink being very thin and watery soaks up into the brushes leading to product wastage.
