Today, I shall be reviewing the eyeliner pen by VOV. I was actually pushed into buying it by the SA.
I had wanted to buy the Lakme Eye Artist, but since that was not available, so the pushy SA tricked me into buying this one. Not that I have any complaints as such with the product, but I avoid Japenese, Korean and Chinese products (no offences to anyone, just a personal choice). Let us take a detailed review of the same.
Product Being Reviewed:
VOV Eyeliner Pen.
Shade: Jet Black.
Ingredients/ Manufacturing date/Expiry Date:
Not mentioned anywhere (one of the main reasons why I avoid this brand).
INR 155 (not mentioned again, this is the price for which I got it), comes as a sleek pen-like plastic bodied eyeliner pen which has a felt tip in the front and a tight cap at the top. It is a neat, no-nonsense packaging which is good for such an eyeliner pen.
My Take on VOV Eyeliner Pen:
Though I fell in the trap of one of the marketing gimmicks and bought this one impulsively, I do not regret this purchase at all. Because of the felt tip applicator, the application of this eyeliner pen is very easy. I can conveniently draw thin and thick lines alike, it dries off within a few seconds of application. Also, once applied, this liner stays on for a good 4-5 hours after which it starts to fade a bit. It does not smudge. One thing I noticed was that when I applied it on the waterline, my eyes started itching which means it is not to be used on the waterline. Coming to the colour, one stroke will not give you a jet black finish, but 2-3 swipes shall give you a dark black colour. Again, it is not highly pigmented. It is also not waterproof as I had kept my hand under running water to test the efficacy and it smeared.
Summing the pros and cons:
Pros of VOV Eyeliner Pen:
- Felt tip applicator, makes it easy to be used.
- Reasonably priced, value for money.
- Dries quickly.
- Does not smudge for 4-5 hours.
- Easy to draw even thin lines for winged eye liner.
Cons of VOV Eyeliner Pen:
- No mention of the ingredients (quite scary, I would not want to put anything and everything on my eyes).
- It is not waterproof.
- Stings the waterline, not safe to be used there.
- Not the blackest black, i.e., not highly pigmented.
Do I Recommend VOV Eyeliner Pen?
Yes, it may be recommended. It is a budget buy. Good for makeup beginners or college-going girls who are often on the look out for reasonably priced makeup products.
