Review: Physicians Formula Eye Definer Felt-Tip Eye Marker (Ultra Black)

I have given this eyeliner more chances that it probably deserved over the past 4 months and today I want to share my thoughts on why this Physicians Formula Eye Definer Felt-Tip Eye Marker does not live up to any of its claims.

The packaging reveals an eyeliner that closely resembles a sharpie with a similarly shaped felt-tip to match. For the just-under-$10 price tag, I wish the packaging looked less cheap.

The tip felt dry and tugged during my initial application. The formula started to flow a bit smoother after the first week and the finish is halfway between matte and glossy.

Wear-quality wise, the formula tends to transfer to the lower outer rim within the first two hours. Certainly, the product wears a little better on some days than others, but it never even reached a quarter of the way near its "Smudge-proof", "Smear-proof", "Fade-proof", and "24 hours wear" claims. This eyeliner is also advertised to be hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, dermatologist-approved, and safe for contact lens wearers.

After cleaning up the eyeliner multiple times a day, there is not much product left to be removed at the end of the day. Any eye makeup remover that I happened to be using does the trick just fine.

I think this eyeliner may be in the process of being discontinued. Just in case you come across a sale display, don't be tempted to purchase this eyeliner!

Have you tried this eyeliner?
