So here I am with my thoughts on the infamous Dolly Wink Eyeliner....clearly this is another one of those products that I bought based on the the heated raves and hype over the internet. However, I'm sad to say that....i am ever so slightly disappointed. Don't get me wrong though, I'm not saying this is bad but I just expected it to be nothing less than perfect. This high expectation is probably due to the psychological fact that I've heard a plethora of praises and nothing but goodness in this product. I still like it a lot, but it's just a tad away from "love".
To start off, the polka-dot packaging is adorable and I absolutely love the super fine pointed and flexible brush tip it has - personally it's the best out of all the liquid liners that I've ever tried or seen. The eyeliner is pigmented and if you're looking for an eyeliner that will give you the most precise & perfect winged eyeliner look, this is it. It's also perfect for the on-the-go girls and especially good for touch ups when you have false lashes on - it reaches every spot/corner where you need it. And because of its pen-like form, it is really easy to control and makes liquid eyeliner application like a breeze. Dolly Wink eyeliner also lasts a long time on my relatively oily lids, and when tested on my hand with some rubbing, it did stay put and didn't smudge. However, this liner is only water resistant and not waterproof - with a few vigorous rubs under running water, this liner will smudge, fade and then disappear.

|Countless swipes I've made until product came out properly after it dried.....le sigh =_=;|
Now the one disappointment I had with this eyeliner is that I found it extremely annoying when I was using this to do some precise application that took longer than normal because the brush tip would turn dry and no colour would come out! I'm not sure about other people's dolly wink eyeliner, but mine seems to have started off dry from the very beginning, so the fact that I left this exposed to air longer than average (because I was experimenting with a makeup look) i had to shake this repetitively for a longgggggg period of time before the brush tip had product and became moist/wet again. I'm also thinking that it might be because when you are applying it, the pen tip is facing up while all the product is going the opposite direction - hence the reason for temporary lack of product & dryness. So, i highly recommend and strongly suggest storing this product with the tip facing downwards.
If you have this Dolly Wink eyeliner, please let me know if you've experienced the (relatively long) temporary dryness due to longer exposure to air! Maybe I'm the unlucky one? Or I guess I will not do experimental looks with this eyeliner anymore lol....I still like this eyeliner though, it's definitely worth a try. Just be careful.

ps. I apologize for the lack of posts, because I'm cramming for finals right now. I'll probably be back some time next week with an exciting tutorial and maybe a haul cause I will most likely go out shopping to treat myself after my finals hahahaha XD
