3 Concept Eyes Creamy Waterproof Eyeliner in #1 Cats review
Non-pearlescent matte black
I was very excited when I found this in my Honestskin gift box that I received a few of months ago.
I have heard a lot of good things about 3 Concept Eyes but never actually tried anything from them.
I am not a huge black liner person, but I always have one pencil and one liquid liner in my collection. I might not have that many but the ones I do own need to be of decent quality or they will get chucked out.
Things I want from my black liners are:
They be blacker than my soul
They be easy to apply
They stay put where they belong
Everything else is negotiable till further notice
So lets analyse if this liner qualifies for the steps mentioned above.
The color of the liner is black, not charcoal, anthracite or other dark grey shades that you sometimes get with “black” eyeliners.
The pencil is a gel type liner, with a medium softness. I have tried gel liners that were so soft or so hard the application was quite a pain. This one is neither too hard nor too soft.
It doesn’t tug my skin at all when I apply it and I don’t have to press down hard for the color to be intense.

When freshly applied it is smudgeable. Not the most smudgeable pencil in the world but decently enough to get a grading done.
The liner stays put when you leave it to dry.
It looks freshly applied if you don’t touch your makeup for about 3-4 hours and looks very good for about 8.

The only downside with this, and any gel liner really, is that it is hard to get a pointy wing when you use it for a vintage eye. The good part is that it looks practically like a liquid liner but with an easier application if it wouldn’t be for the wing. Even though there is a sharpener included at the end of the pencil the liner never gets really pointy to be able to make a good end. That is absolutely fine for me since I use gel liners for a more informal look and liquid ones for a more polished one.
I do have my eye on the burgundy one which looks absolutely gorgeous. I hope it is matte as well (If you have it please let me know!).
It will probably mysteriously jump into my cart when doing my next order.

Edit: I have stopped using this liner for 4 months (yeah this review is not the most current) and it dried out somewhat. The liner only drew grey and it was a lot harder to use since it wasn't soft any more. I had to cur off the tip and now it works just like freshly opened again.
