I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with eyeliner pens...I've tried so many that weren't pigmented enough, that ran out after only a couple of weeks or that were awkward and uncomfortable to apply. When done right, felt-tip pens are one of my favourite ways to do eyeliner as they're easy to apply, last all day and don't transfer all over the place. I decided I needed to get a good collection together of budget alternatives as I love the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, but it would just be too much effort to keep re-purchasing it from the US! I've found these three products that do the job perfectly for £6 or less so I thought I'd share them with you...
Bit of a mouthful, but a really nice product! The pigmentation is good and the double ended feature means you can get the perfect cat eye. I tend to do my very inner corner and the detail on my flick with the thin end and then the bulk of the line across my lash with the thicker end (which is similar in size to the nib on the other two liners I have here). The only negative I'd say is that I personally wouldn't want to do the entire thing with the thin end as it could be a little scratchy. I've found that it's still performing a few weeks down the line. It's my favourite for getting a thin and precise look, however I do get a little bit of transfer with this! Though my eye area is much oiler than most people's.
The oldest and most-used of the bunch but still going strong! Whilst it doesn't have the double-ended feature of the Makeup Revolution offering, you can use the very point to get a thinner line or angle it to get something thicker. It's a really great size and shape for me personally and isn't scratchy or awkward in the slightest. The pigmentation is nice but not out of this world, however I'm impressed that it still hasn't faded to a grey, wishy-washy shade.
This one is so unbelievably inky and is probably the most fully-opaque of the three. This is definitely my newest purchase so I can't comment as much on how long it will stay this way, however so far, so good! The shape and size of the nib is pretty similar to the Collection one and the main difference between these two is that Supercat is a little more pigmented than the Collection one was when I first got it. It really depends how important that is to you, as there isn't much between the two.
