The Sephora Hello Kitty Collection is limited edition and exclusive to Sephora online. Pen Pal Eyeliner is a collection of felt-tipped liquid eyeliners in varying shades. In theory, felt-tipped eyeliner “markers” are an incredible idea, especially for those who find applying liquid eyeliner challenging. It’s essentially like drawing on your lash line. Unfortunately, I found this liquid liner to be extremely disappointing. To find out why,
Pen Pal Eyeliner has the Hello Kitty signature and Hello Kitty head on its packaging. Adorable on the outside, as the entire collection has delivered.
Goodnight Dreams is a plain black liquid eyeliner. The felt tip is supposed to act like a marker, allowing you to draw on your eyeliner. Unfortunately, this is just one disappointment after another. From the start, this eyeliner leaked everywhere, and ended up all over the white table I use to swatch everything. It also ended up all over my hands, and I had to wash them before continuing.
After cleaning up this runny, leaking mess, I attempted to apply this eyeliner to my upper lash line. I eventually gave up…for several reasons. First, the eyeliner has a very thin, small tip, making it difficult to apply a thicker line, or build upon your color. If you go back over your liner, the tip is so thin and “sharp” angled, it will create marks in the liner already on your eye. Second, the formula was runny and took forever to dry. After five minutes of leaving my eye in a downward position (so it wouldn’t smudge onto my eyelid or crease), I was able to go straight into the bathroom and wipe this off with a tissue. With a tissue! Unacceptable. This eyeliner was the equivalent of trying to apply liquid liner to your eyes with the tip of a toothpick. Bleh.
Bottom Line: Unless your curiosity is killing you, I would stay away from these eyeliners. They are difficult, if not impossible to apply, extremely runny, and do not dry quickly.
