Name: Dip It Eyeliner in Black
Brand: Sleek Makeup
Size: 4ml
Price: €5.49

From Sleek Makeup’s website:
A highly-pigmented liquid formula, Dip It can be used to subtly define eyes or create dramatic feline flicks. The fast drying formula guarantees fuss free and precise application with minimal smudges. The firm, tapered tip of the applicator is easy to control and allows for quick and precise application.

What I liked:
– pigmented
– matte finish
– easy to apply
– dries quickly
– longlasting
– pretty and practical packaging
– the price

What I didn’t like:
– not waterproof

Whenever I get a new liquid eyeliner, my first thought is, “What on earth am I supposed to do with this?”. Liquid eyeliner and I aren’t the best of friends. When I try to use one, I am more likely to poke myself in the eye with it rather than create a feline flick a la Brigitte Bardot. *sighs*

But with Sleek Makeup Dip It Eyeliner, I shouldn’t have worried. This stuff is fool-proof. The applicator has a sturdy and slim felt tip that glides smoothly, without tugging, on the lids, and allows you to create both thin and thick lines easily. The long, slim handle gives you control for an even more precise application. And the small, travel-friendly, pot itself is just so cute!

Dip It Eyeliner in Black is a true, inky black with a matte finish. It’s perfect to create both dramatic cat eyes and intense smokey looks for an evening out. Opaque in just one coat, it dries quickly and doesn’t budge for most of the day.

It did start flaking a bit after 8 hours (I wasn’t wearing a primer, by the way), but we’re in the middle of a heat wave at the moment, which makes most makeup products melt a lot faster. Considering that Dip It Eyeliner isn’t waterproof, I’d say that’s pretty impressive. Just don’t wear it at the pool or the beach and you’ll be fine.

Sleek Makeup Dip It Eyeliner in Black is pigmented, easy to use, and dries quickly. Although longlasting, it isn’t waterproof and can flake when it is too hot.

I’m trying hard not to spend any money on makeup till I score another consulting gig, but I am dying to try something from Sleek. That is one super-black eyeliner, and the tip looks good. At some point, I’ll probably start with a Sleek eye shadow palette

Allison, oh yes do try something from Sleek as soon as you have the chance. I love their palettes. So pigmented and great value for money. This eyeliner is great as well. I love how easy it is to use.

I need my eyeliners to be waterproof. Mascara, too! If I’m wearing eye makeup beyond a bit of shadow and my Dior brow pencil (I’ll send you one when Sephora has their VIB sale event <3) on the upper lash line, I'm at an event, a special day, or running in the rain and want my makeup to be budge proof.

Non-waterproof stuff is reserved for face painting as it is more practical to take off.

Janessa, this won’t work for you then. It’s a shame cos if it were waterproof it’s be pretty much perfect. And thank you!
