Liquid eyeliner is a staple in my make up repertoire, so it’s safe to say I have pretty much tried them all. Luxury to drugstore brands, from brush tips to felt tips. There’s been a lot but I’m always left wanting to try more. So imagine my excitement when Tom Ford Beauty released one too!
The Tom Ford Eye Defining Pen is a dual ended liquid eyeliner, featuring a fine calligraphy tip on one side and a felt-tip on the other. A liquid liner that offers two different types of application, say whaaat?! It’s pretty cool. I adore the calligraphy brush in particular and tend to use it more. It’s just amazing and seriously makes applying liquid eyeliner a breeze! You get smooth lines in an easy stroke and the colour is nicely pigmented so you always get a lovely precise and opaque line.
The other end has a felt tip applicator and is ideal for creating thicker lines, which is fabulous for those more dramatic looks. Honestly though, regardless of which brush end you use, both provide amazing definition that will enhance any look. They both glide on easily with continuously smooth application across the lid and zero tugging to the skin. The formula does take a few seconds to dry down, but once it sets, it does not budge, smudge or flake away for an outstanding 12 hours on me, but comes off easily with make up remover (I use Bioderma Crealine H2O).
The pen is packaged in Tom Ford’s signature mahogany gloss casing with gold accents, which I adore as it just exudes elegance. It’s also longer and slightly heavier than most eyeliners, but it’s well balanced so not awkward to hold. Being short sighted though usually means that I get pretty close to the mirror when applying eye make up, and therefore the length of the Pen would occasionally smash into the glass lol, but I’m getting used to it and know better now! At this stage the Eye Defining Pen is only available in the shade Deeper (01) which is a carbon black. Here’s hoping they release more shades as it has fast become one of my all time favourite liquid eyeliners!
Price-wise, at AU$75/US$55/£42.00, I will admit that the Eye Defining Pen is on the higher end of the spectrum. But hey, if you love luxury make up that delivers incredible results then I don’t think you can go wrong here. Try it out!
Available now from all Tom Ford Beauty counters and stockists. Aussie lovelies that means David Jones city stores in Melbourne/Sydney and online, RRP AU$75.
Spring is my favourite season. To me it means the excitement of sunshine, my birthday, and illuminated, bronzy make up. Whilst to be honest we haven’t had much sunshine here in Melbourne, Tom Ford Beauty has definitely nailed on that last one, and you guys know I always love me a new Tom Ford release.
