When HBC sent me the SanSan Waterproof Eyeliner Pen in Black and Brown I didn’t open it immediately. Well, I was not planning on using it as soon as possible as I am not really a big fan of such products but, hey, I would still love to give it a try.
The Good Bits:
I love the fact that it is really inexpensive. It actually costs less than a hundred bucks. I have initially tried the NYX felt tip liner and I loved it at first but the last time I wore it on my eyes was when it got smudged by the sweat when I accompanied my sister to her school fair. Damn! So I was quite scared to try out this product as it may smudge since it’s very cheap and you know what they say, “you get what you pay for.” Well, to give justice to the NYX product, it didn’t really say waterproof but, hey, did I really sweat that much; because only one eye has smudged, honestly. Anyway back to the SanSan product, it never smudged on my eyes and it is, indeed, waterproof. I actually had my facial a few days back and of course, you’d expect them to clean your face first so I noticed how she’s having a hard time removing my eyeliner. Hahaha! Smudge-proof! And when I got home, it’s still there. High five SanSan! You totally made my facialist give up on removing you off of my eyes. This is one of the reasons why I wanted to blog my review of this product. It totally amazed me. Another thing I loved about this is the fact that it comes with a felt tip which I actually always prefer when it comes to eyeliner since I really am a bit clumsy when applying it on my eyes. It also dries quickly, on me at least, and it did last the whole day on my eyes.
The Bad Bits:
I don’t know if it’s just me but when you’ve had the cap open too long it has the tendency to dry up quick so make the application as fast as possible then close the cap immediately. But upon closing it and waiting for a few seconds while having it faced down (the tip at the bottom) it’ll go back to normal. Well, I think it’s pretty normal with this kind of product so, yeah, I just do my wings so slow that the felt tip dries up quick. Haha! For the black shade, it doesn’t come off as really black with the first line then you just have to re-apply it again to make it more opaque.

I’m okay with this product and it’s the current one I’m sticking to as of the moment. I’m giving this a rating of 8/10. I wasn’t, initially, impressed with this but when I found out how waterproof it is and after using it over and over again, I’m slowly developing a good relationship with this eyeliner pens. It may not be the best one out there but it’s worth it.
