[Review] Etude House Oh m'Eye Line Liquid Eyeliner

Wednesday, January 21, 2015

This Oh m'Eye Line Liquid Eyeliner is another one of those Etude House products that you have to try because everyone seems to love it and it's so cheap! When I bought this in Korea, I believe I paid around 4,000 won, or $4 USD. Without further adieu... here's the review (haha... oh my rhyming skills).

Let's get to the breakdown....

Packaging....
This is just your typical liquid liner packaging. I actually like that the handle is extra long because it feels like it gives me more control.

Oh, Etude House. You kill me with you puny names. 

My only complaint about the packaging is that I wish the scraper on the inside (like the mouth of the container) were more narrow so it would scrape off more product. Haha I don't know how else to better describe it, but you can see in the picture that when you first pull the brush out, there's almost too much eyeliner on it. I personally like thinner liner, but it's really not that big of a deal. 


Brush...
With a little work, you can wipe so of the excessive off. As you can see, the brush is very fine and pointed. I love this because it gives a very precise line. It's not very study though, so for beginners, this eyeliner will probably take some practice to master. I have deemed myself an eyeliner professional... so for me... it doesn't really affect me. But you can definitely still use this if you're not that comfortable with liquid eyeliners yet! 

Accuracy...
Like I mentioned above, the finally tipped brush allows for very accurate lining. 

As you can see from my swatches, you can create very thin lines and very thick lines. 

Opacity...
This eyeliner is nice and dark :) I love dark, dark eyeliners. For me, the darker the better. So I was satisfied with the opacity of this eyeliner. 

Waterproof and Long-lasting...
This eyeliner is waterproof, as long as you don't rub or touch it while it's wet.  It also wears very nicely throughout the day. I didn't notice it fading whatsoever (Note: I don't have oily eyelids at all) so I really liked this eyeliner. 

Removal...
This actually comes off fairly easily with warm water and soap. You will also probably need a little makeup remover to get the rest off. This eyeliner was actually interesting the way it comes off because it reminds me of eyelashes glue. It's almost rubbery and it almost 'rolls' off. No need for scrubbing and it doesn't smudge all over your face when you're trying to take it off. I try to show what I meant by 'being similar to eyelash glue' in the picture.
