A kitten flick has become a part of my everyday look ever since I mastered the art of winged liner. I’ve tried various gel, liquid, and pencil eyeliners over the years, but nothing has matched up to the intensity of my favourite Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner. It’s long-wearing, easy-to-apply and doesn’t smudge or smear. My only gripe is that it dries up real quick and becomes difficult to work with. I bought the gel liner about two months ago and it’s already dried up.
While looking for an alternative, I came across the Colorbar Ultimate Eyeliner in Black and decided to give it a go. The liquid formula glides on smoothly and makes it easy to achieve the feline flick in one effortless swipe. The felt tip liner distributes the right amount of product and the precise applicator dispenses an intense jet-black liquid. The pen applicator eliminates the need for a brush or any other tool. It applies without tugging and offers good control.
The super-flexible tip allows for thin or thick line application. However, the product doesn’t live up to its long-lasting claim. On me, it stayed for a good five hours before flaking and feathering. It’s a big disappointment considering how richly pigmented the product is. Overall, it’s an okay product considering it lets me create an Audrey Hepburn-esque flick in under five minutes!
