[REVIEW] TFS Inkgel Pencil Eyeliner

Besides BB cream and eyebrow pencil, the one product I can’t do without is eyeliner. Granted, my eyes are not that small, but eyeliner definitely helps to make your eyes look bigger, deeper, and a lot sharper than they normally do.

Thanks to my perpetual struggle with liquid eyeliner and the alarming rate at which I finish my eyeliners, I’m always on the lookout for new pencil eyeliners. I saw this product in Korea when I was buying a new shade of the Moisture Touch lipstick and decided to put this in the basket since it was TFS, and TFS’ products have never left me disappointed.

The names of many of the shades sound so delicious – I settled on Choco Latte, a chocolate brown.

Packaging: A simple pencil, with a cap that clearly tells you what colour it is. It’s light and convenient to carry around in your makeup pouch.

Colour payoff & intensity: This product’s payoff is really good, in fact, much better than I had expected. It glides smoothly on the eyelids with a good colour payoff, so that you don’t have to keep tugging to get a decent colour (coughs at Innisfree). I think this brown is fantastic if you’re looking for something to make your eyes look bigger and more alert, without coming off as too fierce with dark black.

Staying power: I’m amazed at how waterproof AND smudge-proof this eyeliner is. I’ve probably got the oiliest eyelids possible, so I’ve been very impressed by how well this eyeliner stays put throughout the day no matter how much I sweat. On days that I know I have to sweat quite a bit in the hot weather, or with no guarantee that I’ll get time to touch up on my makeup, this is definitely the eyeliner that I go for. It also helps that it’s super easy to draw, almost like using a pencil or crayon.


Final Verdict

I haven’t said this before, but I’ll say it – this is my FAVOURITE pencil eyeliner!!

Although it’s not very cheap (sadly), I’d gladly fork out the money to repurchase this eyeliner in all the other shades because I love it so much. Easy to use, great colour payoff, and impressive staying power – these are the qualities I’m looking for in an eyeliner, and TFS’ Inkgel ticked all the right boxes.

I HIGHLY recommend this, with all my heart and in all sincerity. Once you try this product, you may never buy another type of pencil eyeliner again.
