A Sharpie for Your Eyes

After reading about it, The Beauty Bug purchased The Physician’s Formula Eye Definer Felt Tip Eye Marker. A novel idea with huge potential, this was a no risk purchase – it was only 6.99 at CVS. She really had no expectations before trying it; She’s always had trouble applying eyeliner on the top of Her lid so She didn’t expect this to be life-changing.

The Beauty Bug first applied the marker to a eyeshadow-less eye. The tip of the marker is thin, therefore resulting in a pencil thin line. The side of the marker is a bit wider, resulting in a thicker line, so use accordingly. The Beauty Bug applied using the tip, but the line was a bit dotted and the color was a bit inconsistent and see thru, similar to watercolor paints, so She used the side of the marker to touch it up and even it out. After all was said and done, She was happy with the result and the line looked straighter than when she uses a liquid liner and brush.

The Beauty Bug next applied the liner to eye after She had applied shadow. This was a bit harder because the eye shadow was rubbing off on the tip making the marker making the pigment less bold. This was a bit more time consuming, and The Beauty bug had to us a combination of the tip and the side to achieve a definitive line.

The third time She put the maker to the test was again to a bare eye. This time it was most challenging because it seemed as though the tip had run out of color after just three applications. She had to hold the marker in a horizontal position and it was very awkward and she didn’t have much control. After fussing with the line for a good 2 minutes, she resorted to touching it up with an angled brush and some black eyeshadow.

Bottom line with this marker, it’s a fooler. It’s definitely a decent product but it’s not nearly as easy as it seems. Patience is the key. It washes off very easily at night without any harsh scrubbing or makeup remover. Be sure to use it when you have some time because The Beauty Bug has yet to be able to apply and go – it’s just not that easy. The most important thing to remember is the color is gets more and more inconsistent the more times you use it, so be prepared to maneuver hand positions when applying.

    Hmm … I was interested in testing out this product, but after reading your review, I think I’ll just skip it.
