As I’m typing this it’s snowing outside. Not a pleasant flurry which makes you want to grab a cup of something hot and sit by the window, rather it’s a complete white-out complete with whistling winds. So, in an effort to turn lemons into lemonade, I’ve been practising my more dramatic eyeliner skills.
Rather than relying on my usual quick swipe of crayon in my waterline, Hema’s Soft Eyeliner Pen has been making my efforts rather enjoyable too! The Soft Eyeliner Pen comes from Hema, which I’m sure is going to be as big as H&M or Primark. What differentiates Hema from its competitors, though, is the quality. Although the prices are incredibly affordable, the makeup I’ve tried has been really great.
The Soft Eyeliner Pen might be my favourite; you can see how pointed the tip of the pen is, which means precise application is incredibly easy. The lightest touch leaves a jet black line, and it you can achieve a super thin or rather more dramatic line depending on how you angle the pen. Unlike a lot of felt-pen liners I’ve tried, I don’t need to re-draw any of my lines, meaning cat eyes can be drawn perfectly first time around. When I’ve worn the liner, it’s lasted throughout the day without a hint of fading. Instead, I get to enjoy inky black eyeliner all day long!
Hema’s Soft Eyeliner Pen is priced at £4.25 and is available here.
