I have always been a lover of winged eyeliner. Granted it’s a nerve wracking procedure to get both wings to look remotely similar, but I love having winged eyeliner. Personally I like my wing to be sharp at the end, a matte black finish, smudge proof yet easy to remove at the end of the day.
Having tried a few eyeliners I finally jumped onto the band wagon and tried the Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner Pen. I enjoy Soap & Glory skin products and have tried a few from their makeup range. Plus they are cruelty free and a lot of their products don’t contain animal animal derived products. So I was looking forward to trying this eyeliner that I seemed to see all over my social media all the time.
I chose the normal version rather than the Supercat Fat Eyeliner pen, but if I my local Boots stocked the Supercat Skinny Eyeliner pen I probably would have picked that one up. I prefer to use eyeliner in the form of pens as I find they are very easy to control and for me it’s the easiest and quickest way to get a wing.
The pen of Supercat Eyeliner is a standard size, not to fat but not too skinny. I do find the formula to have a weird smell, it could just be my pen. But every time I open the lid I get a waft of a weird smell. The actual formula I enjoy. It glides on, isn’t streaky and dries to a nice semi matte/glossy finish. Its stays on well throughout the day, it’s super easy to remove and I don’t have to rub my eyes lots to get it off!
The main selling point to me is that as well as having a nice finish, it needs to be able to give me a nice sharp wing. Supercat eyeliner does have a nice nib, however in order for me to achieve a nice sharpness I have to be really light handed. The best way to describe it is that I do a wing like normal, then add a light handed thinner line at the tip of the wing to make it more sharp.
Having said that I find the very end of the pen hasn’t started to dry up after a few uses. Other eyeliners I’ve tried the nib of the pen dries up after a few uses. However after using Supercat for two months a few times a week, the end hasn’t dried up. So it’s still super easy to get thin lines and precision.
Overall I like this eyeliner pen, I just don’t love it. I think it’s great for doing liner or wings. I can get a good wing after a little faff but I would prefer not to faff. I would definitely try the Supercat Skinny Eyeliner pen when this one runs out, but for £6 you can’t go wrong!
Thank you so much for reading! What eyeliners do you enjoy using?
Until next time!
