Product review: Benefit "they're real" push-up liner
So when I heard about this new liner, I just had to have it. Evidently this revolutionary "nib" on the pen, took like four years to develop? It's supposed to be the first "pen" that delivers a gel liner (as opposed to a liquid)
So you turn the bottom and the product is dispensed through the soft angled tip. The problem is the inconsistency in how much product comes out; you never really know how many turns you need to make. The other issue is that product continues to ooze out after you cap it, leading it to harden and clog the tip. The product itself is on the drier side, leading to an uneven feed of product as you try to achieve your straight line. It is recommended that you "stamp" instead of draw with it, but I found the consistency to be far too tacky for that. And achieving a pretty "flick" at the end with that weird tip? Nope.
Overall I am super bummed out by this $24 liner. I far prefer my bent liner brush and a trusty pot of gel liner.
