Well I really don't like No7 makeup, I just find is overpriced for the quality, which as it happens, is never to be very good. But of course I can still get lured with a £5 off voucher that Boots always offer, and even with my views on No7 makeup I still buy something. This time, I opted for the No7 Stay Precise Felt Tip Eyeliner (£8 costing me £3), where I am normally a gel eyeliner fan for my favourite 'cat eye' look I fancied a change as I've been finding gel liner a bit heavy and too much effort these days. Think I'm getting old.
When I got home I decided to read a few reviews on it, slightly backwards as I know, I should of done it beforehand but this eyeliner seemed to be pretty well received in the beauty and makeup blog world. And when I say pretty well, I couldn't not find one negative review, nope, not a single one. However when I tried it I have to say the complete opposite, I really hate being overly negative about a product but off I go anyway...
The first dislike with this pen is how hard the nib is, some people will love this as its doing what is says on the tin and you do get a very precise line, so whats my problem? Its HURTS, it really hurts when applying onto my lids. It felt like I was running a biro pen over my eyes. Ouch. My second dislike with the No7 Stay Precise Felt Tip Eyeliner is the colour pigmentation, or lack of. I picked up the black (brown is available too) as I like my liner fairly obvious, not in your face but I do like some definition, or I wouldn't wear any. But this was such a 'pale' black and was noticeably 'gappy' on. You can see its black but it looks faded, either as if you haven't bothered with the application or its been on all day.
Okay last third and finally gripe (nice moany post eh) is it didn't last. Maybe this was to do with the pigmentation but after a few hours the liner seemed to of disappeared and/or smudged. Don't get me wrong I really did want to like this eyeliner, and for £3 I was very excited I may of found a new holy grail eyeliner, but unfortunately but negative views on No.7 are staying put.
