Let’s continue with my reviews for Korean Makeup. The product I am reviewing today Holika Holika Wonder Drawing Dot Liner is probably one of the cheapest products that has ever been featured on this blog, but hey I cannot believe I lived so many years without it! Basically it’s a liquid eyeliner that is designed for filling the white gaps between your lashes, and it is the drugstore version of the Clarins 3 dot eyeliner which was limited edition.
If you are fussy with your eyeliner, you would know it takes more than just drawing a straight line along the lashes. To make it appear more perfect, there are 3 steps involved: 1.draw the waterline (the inner rim), 2. draw the regular line as close to the lashes as possible. 3. fill any white gaps between the lashes.
I never like to follow the makeup rules, and to me I like to find my own ways to enhance my features as everyone is different. Unlike most people, I cannot see the upper inner rim when my eyes are opened, therefore I never draw the upper waterline because it doesn’t make any difference to my eyes. Another feature I have noticed on myself is that my upper lid slightly overlaps with the lower lid when my eyes are closed (compared to the upper lid sitting right on top of the lower lid for most people), so whichever eyeliner I use to rim the waterline it will always smudge terribly.
Here is where this magical product comes in! If you look at your eyes closely, you will always see some white spots between the lashes after the eyeliner and mascara are applied. I normally just use a regular liquid eyeliner to fill these gaps one by one, and it’s very time consuming. With this product, it takes no time to do this and it just works perfectly. It’s a very trivial step that is easily neglected, but by filling in these gaps, they make a huge difference to my eyes in terms of depth. In addition, if you are skilled enough, this is also an ideal product for drawing fake lower lashes. The only gripe about this product is that it’s impossible to be removed. It’s great as it has never smudged on me, but be prepared to spend more time for removal.
Bottom Line: A must have eyeliner product if you are a perfectionist with your eye makeup! Holika Holika wonder drawing dot eyeliner can be purchased here with more information and pictures on how to use this product.
