I received Tony Moly Inked Cushion Eyeliner (aka Harry Potter eyeliner) from my dearest best friend Jennifer. I completely forgot that she picked this up for me, so it was a nice treat! We are both mega nerds when it comes to Harry Potter, and we both like makeup, so of course this was a no brainer.
So the first time I put it on, I didn’t realize that the brush wasn’t already in the liner, the way an inkpot works. It took me a hot second to realize that I had to unscrew the bottom.
Once I figured all that out, it took me a second to get used to the quill. As someone who usually uses drug store liquid liner pens, it was a new experience. I am pretty low maintenance, so I’m not used to washing out brushes after putting on my makeup.
Tony Moly’s description of the eyeliner is:
“Formulated to go on intense like ink and glide on light as a feather, our liquid gel-type cushion liner never skips, clumps, or drags, helping you achieve the perfect winged look. The cushion pot helps control the amount of product that is picked up and the built-in brush is designed to work perfectly with the formula so you always get an intense payoff with precision and ease.”
I wouldn’t necessarily agree with the description 100%. I had no problem with the consistency of the eyeliner, it was smooth, but the brush was really thick- too thick to have a winged look. Maybe I’m just not skilled enough with eyeliner, but I also am a former art major so I don’t think that’s the case. I like the color, and I would agree that the black was very inky. It was easy to make sure that the liner got close to/ in my lash line, so there was no gap near my eyelashes.
All in all, I love the novelty of using this, I love the richness of color, and I love how close I can get to my lashes, but I still pull out my more precise liner for a wing.
