Beauty Review: Charlotte Tilbury Feline Flick liquid eyeliner



Please ignore my disgusting nails - I'm so embarrassed right now...
Hey guys so today's post is another beauty review and this time I'm going to be talking about the Charlotte Tilbury liquid eyeliner. For a long time I've had a fairly rocky relationship with liquid eyeliner. It's the one beauty thing I really struggle with. Getting the cat eye flick is fine, it's attempting to draw a straight line over my lid that I find really difficult. My eyelashes get in the way and it just goes wrong. So very wrong. But I love the look of liquid eyeliner and really want to do it more often, so I invested in this beauty.

The Product: Charlotte Tilbury Feline Flick liquid eyeliner 

The Price: £22



Quick Picks:



The packaging: 4.5 stars
The product: 4 stars
Value for money: 3.5 stars


So I tested this out at the Charlotte Tilbury counter and fell in love with the super accurate, precision liner. It's in pen form which a lot of people seem to find easier than a brush (I don't however) which makes getting an even flick fairly easy.

Now on the back of my hand this product was a dream to apply. I hoped and prayed it would be the same for my eyelids. Unfortunately it wasn't to be however as I found I had the press the pen quite hard into my eyelid to get an even line as otherwise it ended up jagged. After going over the lines a few times it looked acceptable and I was ready for the wings. This part was a lot easier and I was pleased at least with how fabulous my cat eyes looked. 

In terms of staying power: a bug thumbs up. I wore it all day (and have done a few times since) and it stuck in place. This made me super happy as there's nothing worse than having only half an eyelid still left in eyeliner. And when it came to removing it, it came off nicely with my La Roche-Posay micellar water. 

The reason I only gave this product 3.5 stars for value for money is that I believe for £22 I should have a near enough perfect eyeliner. Unfortunately this wasn't but I would still recommend it as a good quality, high end, liquid eyeliner. For a drugstore dupe, L'Oreal make a liquid eyeliner called the Super Liner which in all honesty is very similar to this and a lot cheaper!

  1. The nib looks great I love how fine and thin it is

  2. Honestly, I experienced something similar with a felt eyeliner pen - came out jet-black and didn't budge on my hand, but had to press down quite hard otherwise it came out almost grey on the eyelid. Was also hard to get the flick because the tip was too thick.

    The difference is, mine was a £2 one from Essence (can find it in Wilkinsons). I guess price doesn't necessarily mean better quality.

    When it comes to eyeliner, I always end up with the Collection or Rimmel liquid eyeliners that come in a pot. Much better for precise application and long-lasting too :)

    1. I mean, since I've used this more, I've definitely got the hang of it! It's definitely better than some cheap eyeliners I've tried!
