This is my very first ETUDE HOUSE cosmetic. I was looking for a high endurance eyeliner when I came across this one. I had to try out the brand itself anyway, so I thought I’d start with this one.

Code B Strong Eyes Cream Liner

One pot is priced at around Php 395.00 – 450.00 (i forgot, but I’m sure it’s within that price range.) I think Etude has 3 shades for this product (Black and Browns – light and dark.) I got one in Dark Brown #3, because such shade softens my eyes and whole look, unlike Black ones (which tends to be too Black and fake-looking.)

#3 Dark Brown

It is packaged in a small black shiny tall box with the name “Code B” in it. Probably the name of the collection the product is under (which is actually great!) The product is in a small glass-like pot container and you’d get a free applicator brush with it. (thin and just right for eyeliner application.)

As for the formula of  the “Code B Strong Eyes Cream Liner,” I’d say it’s a tolerable quality. It sure is water and sweat proof! I use this when I go swimming and it wouldn’t smear off. Another industrial-strength eye product we got here. Rubbing it off without a make-up remover would be futile.

The only down-side, at least for me, is that it dries up fast when your still on the process of applying and it hardens the brush applicator. Which is why I take out half a pea size from the pot and use a  mixing palette so the whole pot won’t dry out.

If you want a strong eyeliner that can endure all elements, you may want to try out this one. Not bad for a cheap Korean brand.

A rating of 2.8/5 for this one! =)



It’s been almost a year since I’ve discovered the Revlon ColorStay Eye Pen. I was having an eyeliner-phase so I exhaustively tried and tried on different brands until I found the 03 Blackened Brown from the Revlon ColorStay Collection.

REVLON Color Stay Liquid Pen in 003

A liquid pen costs Php 575.00 from malls which is a bit pricey for an eyeliner by a mass-brand cosmetic, but the quality of this baby sure does redeem itself.

I like the color03 Blackened Brown. It isn’t too black nor browny. It’s actuallly a mix of both which makes it look like a soft black so you won’t look like an eyeliner-rockstar-addict. I’ve always had a bad hand when it comes to applying eyeliners which is why the liquid pen type makes it easy to use. Plus, it’s waterproof and it endures one’s oily face for a whole day. You don’t even have to worry when taking it off because you can easily wipe it off with a wet-ones towel or make up remover. I use this liquid eyeliner pen everyday. I’d say this is a perfection in a pen! 🙂

I would recommend this product for those who use eyeliners everyday. It’s a 4/5 for me.


The Face Shop’s Greatist Liquid Eyeliner is smudge and water-proof. I normally use this on occasions that requires a full make-up, albeit it can be used as an everyday liner as well.

Greatist Liquid Eyeliner's Sleek Elegant Design

Very Fine Tip (Brush)

One bottle is costs Php 475.00. This eyeliner comes in a very elegant bottle of gold, black and a clear plastic glass. It’s applicator is a fine brush and easy to use. The blackness of the liquid eyeliner is a deep black and every application is a thick-finish.

The down-side is, it doesn’t dry up as fast as it should, that’s why I still have to use a fan to dry it all up. And it’s kinda difficult to wipe off. You’ll need a strong make up remover for this one. Plus, it tends to be shiny after it dries, which is actually cute and girly-looking, but is very much against to looking all natural. But if you want an industrial-strenght eye-liner, maybe you’d want to try this one.  🙂

I’d give this a rating of 2.5/5.
