I am an eyeliner-hoarder. I love eyeliners, and I love to collect them and try out which one works best one me. Heh. So I was really excited when I go the chance to try out Mee Cosmetics Brightly Sharp Eyeliner from Essential Beauty House which won the Cleo Best Liquid Eyeliner 2014 Award!
Always appreciate a prettily packaged product!
Mee Cosmetics is a brand from Thailand but the Brightly Sharp Eyeliner is made in Korea. Well, we know how great Korean beauty products are, so I had high expectations about this! The product has also been featured in various magazines. Mee Brightly Sharp Eyeliner is a new innovative automatic liquid eyeliner. It has a smudge-proof and waterproof formula, dries quickly, long-lasting for 24 hours and is easy to remove with makeup remover. Currently, the Mee Brightly Sharp Eyeliner is only available in the shade Black.
The Mee Brightly Sharp Eyeliner is a simple pen type liquid eyeliner, just the way I like it. It is very lightweight and perfect for carrying around. One thing I noticed abut the eyeliener is that it has a ball inside which is meant to be shaken before you use the eyeliner.
It comes with a slim brush which is great for slim and sharp lines. The intense black colour can emphasise your eyes to make them stand out. After using, remember to close the cap tightly and keep away from sunlight and heat to avoid the eyeliner from drying out.
I performed a few simple tests on my hand before trying it out on my eyes to see if the eyeliner lives up to its name. As it's a liquid eyeliner, the formula does run a little and settle into the fine lines of my hand. The eyeliner is proven to be waterproof as it doesn't run when in contact with water. But once it has come into contact with water, it smudges more easily, which got me quite disappointed. Lastly, I used my PureViVi Cleansing Lotion and one swipe is enough to remove the eyeliner completely!
Shake the eyeliner slightly before use to get an even application. Apply it along the lash line, wait for it to try and apply more layers if you prefer your eyeliner to be blacker and thicker.
How the eyeliner looks after drawing my usual cat-eye, slightly winged liner.
I had the eyeliner on for about 10 hours that day, and I cried a little cos we were out watching a movie. Haha. After 10 hours, the eyeliner has faded and isn't as sharp anymore, but considering that it still stayed on after crying, the remaining results is quite impressive!
As I have slightly oily lids, it is difficult to find an eyeliner that won't smudge. Unfortunately, the Mee Brightly Sharp Eyeliner did smudge a little on the edge of my eye after I rubbed it lightly.
Again, removal is a breeze and I only need to wipe once with my makeup remover wipe to get the product right off.
I like that the Mee Brightly Sharp Eyeliner is so light and space-saving so I always carry it out in my makeup pouch nowadays to do light touch-ups. I always appreciate fine-tip pen liners as I find that it is easier to build up. It's a good eyeliner to use if you're a beginner at makeup. Sadly, it isn't as smudge-proof as it claims to be but I would recommend it for the colour payoff is amazing for just one layer and it is easy to draw and control. This can even be an alternative for my current favourite eyeliner, the Maybelline Hypersharp Liner Laser Precision. The price is also very affordable at less than RM50 as the quality is comparable to higher-end branded eyeliners out there.
