Dior Liquid Eyeliner Pen in Black is my favorite ever ever EVER liquid eyeliner pen in the whole universe of liquid eyeliners. I ran out of it the other week and went to the drugstore and bought the Revlon Colorstay liquid eyeliner pen (*cough* it was horrible) thinking that it might be the cheaper dupe of the Dior liquid liner. I was so wrong.
In the past, I have tried quite a few liquid liners in the attempt to find something better or cheaper than the Dior liner. However, every attempt has been futile and I always end up coming back to repurchase (about 5 times now) my one true love. I can safely say that in my book, the Dior Liquid Eyeliner Pen is definitely the supreme Queen of Liquid Eyeliners.
The packaging of this product comes in a sleek black pen with large silver writing on the side. The applicator is not a felt tip (like many liquid liners) but is synthetic hairs. They are packed tightly together to form a felt-looking tip and give slightly when you apply, adjusting to the contours of the eye. This makes for a very comfortable application of the product.
What I love about this product is that you can control how much product comes out. You simply twist the bottom of the pen to make the product come out. One twist is the perfect amount of product for one eye (or both if you apply it less heavily).
The actual product is a nice deep black color. I like to apply this to both eyes, let them dry for a few seconds, and then apply another coat over the top so that it is extra opaque and black. The product goes on shiny and then dries to a matte finish. If you have small or close-set eyes, I would recommend leaving your eyes shut for a few seconds to let the product dry a bit so that no product transfers to the crease of your eyes. However, once the eyeliner is dry it stays put wonderfully and last all day long. Also, this liner is great for doing winged liner and is really precise. However, the key to doing any great cat liner/winged liner is a bit of practice, so the more you do it the better you will get.

Although this product comes with quite a hefty price tag ($34.00), its worth it because this liquid liner lasts forever. Each one of these lasts me up to 6 months (less if I'm using it every day and night) It actually lasts me so long that by the last few weeks the hairs on the applicator split a bit and so I just pump out the product and then transfer it to an eyeliner brush. This liquid liner comes in 3 shades (Black, Brown, Navy Blue) and can be found wherever Dior products are sold.
