[Review] Etude House All Day Fix Eyeliner #1 Black

Monday, March 20, 2017

Hello, lovelies! I was in need of a new eyeliner so I headed over to Etude Hosue to get myself a new one. I have previously used and loved the Drawing Show Brush Eyeliner, but I decided to try out this one instead since it appeared to be a new and improved version of the Drawing Show Brush Liner. This eyeliner claims to last all day without smudging. Keep reading if you want to know if I think that it keeps its promise.

        

Description
All day fix pen liner that completes a clear eyeline with its fine particles and super fitting adherence.

How to Apply
1. Hold pen horizontally and draw along lash line from center to outer part of eyes.
2. Slightly lift pen and draw from inner to center part of eyes.

Caution
1. Use only as directed.
2. Avoid storing in high and low temperatures and areas exposed to direct sunlight.
3. Cease use if problems arise..

Ingredients
Water, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Carbon Black(Ci 77266), Butylene Glycol, Alcohol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Acrylates/Octylacrylamide Copolymer, Beheneth-30, Pentylene Glycol, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Hydroxide, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin

        

Application
The application is decently smooth and easy, although you have to apply a little bit of extra pressure to create a pigmented and clean line. The tip is quite stiff (compared to the Drawing Show Brush Liner) which in my opinion makes it a bit hard to handle but it's not unmanageable, you just have to get used to it.

Lasting ability
Judging by my little smudge test below, it definitely holds up quite well. These days, I use this eyeliner every time I do my makeup and it has always lasted all day without a problem or any smudging. It's even a bit of a hassle to remove it at the end of the day when I wash off my makeup. This eyeliner is always the last thing to disappear, hah. On another occasion, I put some eyeliner on my hand just to test it out a little bit and without thinking much about it I jumped into the shower a few hours later. I washed my face, my body and my hair. When I came out of the shower the eyeliner was still on my hand and unharmed.

On another note, I've only used this during the winter when the weather is dry so I have no idea how well it will last on your eyes in humid weather. I also don't get oily on/around my eye area, so I don't know how well it would last for those who do. I read a review by a girl who had a very oily eye area and said that it didn't last for her at all. I guess the lasting ability of this eyeliner is simply case by case.

Smudge Test
          
First picture - The eyeliner is freshly applied and still a bit shiny because it hasn't dried yet.
Second picture - The eyeliner has dried and I slowly, with a lot of pressure, dragged my clean finger across it. It smudged a teeny tiny bit.
Third picture - I applied water to my hands (where the eyeliner was applied) and rubbed the heck out of the lines for a few seconds. I really tried to remove it. I did manage to remove quite a bit, but it is barely actually 'smudged'.

Etude Hosue All Day Fix Eyeliner vs. Drawing Show Brush Liner
The biggest difference between the two eyeliners is that the brush of this All Day Fix Eyeliner is more stiff which makes it a little bit harder to use compared to the Drawing Show Brush Eyeliner. It is also $14.40, a little pricier than the Drawing Show Brush Eyeliner which is only $11.70. The one benefit that the All Day Fix Eyeliner has over the Drawing Show Brush Eyeliner is that it lasts a little bit better and is a little bit more waterproof (from my experience). I don't own a Drawing Show Brush eyeliner anymore, so I can't show you a side by side comparison. But if you want to compare it yourself, you can check out my review of the Drawing Show Brush Eyeiner here

       
This is what the All Day Fix Eyeliner looks like on my eyes (used in both pictures). I used it in all of the makeup looks I've posted during the last couple of months or so, so if you want to see more pictures you can check out my Instagram.

Verdict
I read some of the reviews about this eyeliner on Etude House's global website and I was really surprised that people didn't seem to like this eyeliner at all (compared to the Drawing Show Brush Eyeliner). I personally think that its a good eyeliner and I will keep using it until I run out of it. However, I probably won't repurchase this eyeliner because of the Drawing Show Eyeliner, which is a bit cheaper and does the exact same thing (if not better) as this eyeliner. It's a good eyeliner, but the Drawing Show Brush Eyeliner is simply a slightly better choice and there are also eyeliners from other brands that are better. The one thing this eyeliner does better than the rest is that it really does last without smudging at all.

I hope you enjoyed this review. Thank you so much for reading and bye for now~
