Barry M Wink Black Marker Pen for Eyes Review.


What they say: “Barry M’s Wink is a liquid eyeliner pen that is set to revolutionise your makeup routine. The thick felt tip nib enables you to achieve varying thickness by adjusting the pressure and the angle of the pen, giving you a professional look".

I have been wearing this eyeliner daily for the last few days and I love it. Here’s the breakdown:

Texture, Opacity & Application: This marker has quite a thin consistency which allows for an incredibly smooth line to be drawn. This is the easiest eyeliner I have ever used; the only thing that comes close is the Bourjois Liner Feutre. Some eyeliner pens run out of ink halfway along the eye and need shaking before continuing but this one doesn’t do that. I find the nib makes it really easy to draw thick or thin lines depending on how hard you press. I was really very impressed by how well this eyeliner pen performed – I really recommend this to people who are new to liquid liner.

Colour: The thin consistency means two coats are probably needed if applying over eyeshadow especially shimmery ones. This doesn’t bother me at all because it is so easy to use. The colour left behind is a soft classic matte black. Once on, the colour stays true all day.

Packaging: I think the pen itself looks pretty awful and very 1980s. This is definitely a product that shouldn’t be judged by its cover. The plastic is very high quality and the lid ‘clicks’ securely into place meaning no chance of the product drying out or leaking everywhere.

Price & Availability: This is so cheap at £4.59 and I prefer it to my MAC Blacktrack Fluidline. Incredible.

This gets a huge 8/10. I would get a 10/10 if it was waterproof; I have noticed a very small amount of smudging when my eyes stream from waiting for my train in the freezing cold wind we seem to be having so much of. I love London but I hate the weather!

  2. I don't know why but after a while of wearing this it would transfer onto the top of my lid :( that puts me off wearing it now because it made a bit of a mess. Perhaps i shall try it again because i liked how easy it was to use xx

  3. Maybe try again with a primer before hand? Just a matte skin-toned eyeshadow would stop transfer whilst still allowing the liner to be the main event. :)x
