Rave or Rant? - Jesse's Girl Liquid Eyeliner Pen

Happy Weekend loves!


I absolutely had to do a review on this eyeliner pen because I am a big fan and advocate of this type of eyeliner. I was (too) excited when I got my September Ipsy Glam Bag, (to see the full product list of what I got, click here) I was hoping at I would get this product in my Glam Bag when I saw that it was a possibility and my wish came true. Now I get to play with this baby and review it for all you dolls out there, hope you find this helpful!


As per 'Jesse's Girl Cosmetics' website; the "unique Japanese calligraphy-style brush allows for precise, super-fine application that let's you create lines as small as one millimetre thickness! Combined with a formula that dries super-quick (for a waterproof, smudge-proof application), our liquid eyeliner glides on smoothly without pulling or tugging."

Jesse's Girl Liquid Eyeliner Pen is sold online on their website and other retailers and affiliates (I will list the websites at the bottom of this post), for a steal of a price - $6.99 for 5ml/.017oz of product and it's only available in black. Too bad, I would definitely be interested in different colours for this product! Hoping they come out with more colours in the near future. This is also a waterproof eyeliner, which is just amazing!




I have never had or tried a product from Jesse's Girl Cosmetics before, but I have heard of the brand before and their amazing 'Glow Stix' lip glosses that glow in the dark, well, like glow sticks. I've seen them on some Makeup Artists' social media and everyone couldn't say more good things about them, so I was really excited to try out this eyeliner by this brand!


First initial impression was great, I love the packaging - sexy and sleek, and there's a little bit of weight when you hold the product. I think this is because of her pretty metal packaging and I really appreciate it, I find I have more control because of the weight of the product. The application tip is really impressive, long and pointed and the brush is clean and sharp. Perfect for making precise, sharp lines and angles. I did a quick test on my hand when I initially got it and it glided on my hand nice and smooth and I had to remove it with makeup remover as soap and water didn't rinse it off.



When I finally got my hands on some time to play and really see what this eyeliner can really do, I tried a few different designs to really see the variation on thickness (or thinness) and to see if there are any limitations on what eyeliner designs can be achieved by using his eyeliner. Here's a photo of my eye without make up:


And here are the eyeliner art looks and examples I did with my Jesse's Girl Liquid Eyeliner Pen:

Using this eyeliner is truly a pleasure, glides on smoothly and opaque with one swipe along the lashline and is a true black colour. The applicator brush tip is super easy to use, the longer brush gives some more control but also doesn't limit you to what you can do with this eyeliner. Setting time is super quick, only a few seconds so smudging is almost impossible and the fact that it's waterproof makes it a great go to option for everyday and everywhere wear.


What I do really love about this product is that it's super quick and easy to use. If you're running late or don't have much time in general for makeup, this product should be part of your 5 minute routine. It's perfect to keep in your purse to turn 'office makeup' into 'happy hour makeup' and it's the best way to add drama and polish off any eye look.

Product Grade: A+

Although this is my personal opinion of this product, I really think its a great product and will surely
be the star of any makeup look or collection. I love pen-type eyeliners and have tried many different types from different brands(MAC, Sephora, Stila, Kat Von D, Hello Kitty) and I didn't think it could get better than MAC's Penultimate Eyeliner pen. Until now. I. Love. This. Eyeliner. I know I will be reaching for this eyeliner everyday for all my makeup looks and to do makeup art with. It's a favourite in my collection and I will be repurchasing this eyeliner in the future, for as long as I possibly can!

  1. I'm not overly familiar with pen liners. I only tried the Victoria's Secret one (loved it!) but now it's discontinued. I should try this one next if I can find it in stores.
