VOV Eyeliner Pen Review
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.

Wow that is really cheap for an eyeliner pen.
Some might get it at an even cheaper price…..price is not mentioned at all…
hi shivani.. nice review.. 🙂 it seems a good budget buy..:)
i have used lakme eye artist.. thats good too but not at all waterproof..:) other than thats lakme is just perfect.:)
Hi niesha…thanks….it is quite reasonably priced, i think i will get the lakme eye artist soon.
nice review and liked the shape of ur nails 🙂
Thanks dear 🙂
In oriflame, we have the same eyeliner pen ….its fantastic. Available in 3 colours green,black and brown…..just love them 🙂
i too have the stylo shruti….i have it in green shade.
shivani generally liquid eyeliners are not recommended to be used on the waterline. Guess for a little more price you can get a better liner in maybelline or lakme . 😐
ya honey, i had gone to buy lakme one only but pushy SA ki baton mei akae ye le aayi 🙁 n i used it on the waterline to test its efficacy for this review purpose 😀 otherwise i generally dont put liquid liners on the waterline
Oh..Even I had bought one long back VOV ka….it was thinner and packaging was blue-gray! But it was for 175/- or something , and it was so watery and kept disappearing! 🙁
This one sounds better 🙂 🙂 Great Review 🙂
u never know Riti ki wo dupe tha ya ye dupe hai :0 kuch mention to hai nahi pack pe, it may be duplicate as well who knows….thanks 🙂
i’ve used this one… got it for 100bucks after bargaining 😛
i find this eyeliner pretty decent and good for daily use…!
P.S. i love ur nails!
u got it at a lesser price :smug: thanks for the compliment poorva 🙂 🙂
One of the rare eyeliners which is so cheap. I’ll buy this for sure as it’d work fine for me. 🙂
No harm in trying gauri 🙂
nice review…i have used pencil liner before but i find gel liners more easy to apply..
even i like gel liners a lot nisha … thanks 🙂
Hey nice review Shivani.. thanks 🙂 this will be my next buy.. 😀
u r welcome dear n You may try it thanks 🙂
nice review dear
Thanks Renji 🙂
i dont know if its just me but i dont find felt tip easy or convenient, also since m still not a pro in applying liners quick drying becomes a con for me 🙂
nice review !! great nails 🙂
Felt tips are very convenient rashmi, since u r a beginner i wud advice you to use gel eye liner, very precise application. 🙂 n thanks for the compliment dear 🙂
Thank you shivani, i have been sticking to pencil ones for a long time, but yes m definitely eyeing maybelline gel one in my next haul 🙂
do try the NYX Felt tip eyeliner and you will like it very much. slightly more expensive though around in the 300 bucks range but i bought it recently and love it. I had also bought the MAC gel eyeliner so was looking for an alternative when that got over but got tempted and bought this anyways way before that got over 🙂 and now all I use is this and the colorbar liquid eyeliner. The colorbar kohl works well on the waterline..
i bought this one..and tried…and it really dark..and stays for long time..and i bought it for Rs 150/- intially when i applied on my eye lids i felt an ichy -burining senstaion but within 3 secnds it was gone..may b i have sensitive skin that would b the reason…i am lakme liquid eye liner user…i am just loving this one..and its locally available..do give it a try…atleast you wont regret spending on it 🙂
I bought it for 180……as there was no price mentioned’ it is easier for a shopkeeper to make buyers fool…it is not at all appropriate for oily skin.as it keeps on melting even with a little perspiration……I am not going to buy this again,neither i recommend it for othrs….. *grrr*
