Review: Playboy Kitten Eyes Liquid Eyeliner

Playboy Kitten Eyes Liquid Eyeliner*

Me and liquid eyeliner go hand in hand. You won’t see me with make-up on without liquid liner. Basically it has become a staple, on my face and in my cosmetic bag. I like to think that after about 5 years wearing liquid liner I know my stuff. So when Playboy cosmetics gifted me with their new eyeliner, I was excited to try it.
Swatched on top of a nude eyeshadow, using primer.
+ Easy to apply
+ Brush rather than nib
+ Jet black shine finish
+ Cute packaging

– Cracked during wear
– I could feel the liner during wear
I wasn’t sure what exactly to expect from Playboy’s capsule make-up collection, but I was excited to find out. I first noticed the packaging, which they’ve kept true to the brand by featuring the iconic Playboy bunny. The eyeliner itself comes in a simple black tube with a pink signature – cute! I prefer brushes (like this one) when it comes to liquid liner, as I think you have more freedom, and it’s generally easier to apply. This was certainly easy to apply and left a sharp black, wet look finish. It was also easy to build on. I was impressed. Unfortunately it did crack during the evening though. I also had the same problem with an eyeliner with a similar formula, and I had to keep trying out various primers to find one that worked well with it. So I will give this the benefit of the doubt and say that it could probably be solved with a different primer underneath. As for being able to ‘feel’ the liner, I don’t really know how to explain it in any other way. For £6.95 this won’t break the bank and is a fun addition to an eyeliner lovers collection.
Playboy’s Kitten Eyes Liquid Eyeliner will be available from mid-April.
Stockists are still to be confirmed.
