Generation Beauty – Eyeliner Edit

Hello, hello!

Today I’m reviewing the eyeliners that I received at the Generation Beauty event that I attended last month.

First up is a Liquid Liner from Absolute New York. *Gift Bag Swag from Generation Beauty*

Whether you need ultra-fine precision, or dramatic definition, discover your inner eye expert with these six specially designed felt tip liners. Each dispenses a pigmented, ultra-black formula that boasts budge-proof, smudge-proof wear.

Nano: Ultra Fine Precision Liner (Water-Resistant)
Shape n’ Define: Expert Contour Liner (Waterproof)
Design n’ Define: Expert Calligraphy Liner (Waterproof)
Triple Play: Trio Tip Definer (Water-Resistant)
Duo Stroke: Dual-Ended Precision Liner (Waterproof)
Double Trouble: Jumbo Dual-Ended Liner (Waterproof)

I received the Duo Stroke liner. It is a nice deep dark black, and has AMAZING staying power – it is waterproof, so this is not going to budge until you remove it! I like that it has two different tips, so you can choose how thick or thin of a line to use.

Up next is a khol eyeliner pencil from Crown Brush in shade Sea Green K-48. *Freebie from the Crown Brush booth*

I was surprised to not get a brush as the booth freebie when the other brush companies at GenBeauty were giving out brushes. I could not find the exact product on the Crown Brush website, but here’s what it says on the website about their similar eye pencils:

Versatile pencils suitable for both your eyes and brows. Sharp enough to create a defined point but also soft enough to create a smokey, blended effect.
Comfortable to apply and easy to sharpen.

I do love the colour, but I don’t find it to be soft. The colour smudges easily, and it is not super long wearing on me.

Crown Brush & Essence Swatches

And lastly we have the Long Lasting Eye Pencil from Essence in shade 01 Black Fever. *Gift Bag Swag from Generation Beauty*

long-lasting and color-intense: the long-lasting eye pencil is super-easy to apply accurately thanks to its innovative twist-mechanism and guarantees long-lasting color results.

This pencil is soft and applies like a dream. It is more of a soft black than an ultra-black colour to me, maybe because I’m used to both Perversion and Zero from Urban Decay which are super dark. As for lasting power, it isn’t as long lasting as UD on me, but I’d still say that the lasting power was decent.

What is your fave liquid liner? Fave eyeliner pencil?

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

Disclosure: These products were freebies / gift bag swag from Generation Beauty Toronto event. I am under no obligation to review these products. My opinion is my own.

  1. That Absolute duo liner sounds amazing! Out of curiosity – do you know where it is made? Japan? Germany?
    I have the Essence Long wearing liner in brown it lasts quite well – I was impressed especially for the price. I hardly ever wear black liners so the “blackness” of liners is never a consideration for me!

  2. Awesome post! I love the Absolute Duo Liner, well I actually only really like the precise side, the other side is too thick for me. I agree that it has great formula and staying power. I wore it all day to an engagement recently and it held perfectly.

    I got a lip liner from Crown Brush, I was really hoping I’d get a brush though, haha!
