After being pleasantly surprised with Ladykin’s Youth Activator, I took another leap of faith and purchased Ladykin’s At the Party Vividline Pen Eyeliner, an eyeliner that supposedly lets you draw a vivid line that won’t smudge.
A box costs Php352, with free shipping until the end of June!
According to the brochure and LadykinPH website, the Vividline Pen Eyeliner boasts a strong waterproof formulation that won’t smear. So lines should not be affected by tears, sweat or oil (a claim that is daunting, considering that I use oil-based and water-based cleansers to remove make-up, right?)
The pen also boasts a fine tipped brush that allows users to create a thin line. The pen is also designed for first-time users and eyeliner beginners (which is cool, because I’m crap at eyeliners!)

I have found that the pen eyeliner dries quickly (around 10-15 seconds), and unlike the old liquid eyeliners I have used, the color doesn’t stick to other parts of my eyelids. Straight up, that makes the pen eyeliner a great deal in my book. But what really disappoints me, though, is that the product’s not entirely sweat proof. Sure, you can use it in cool places like Baguio or Tagaytay, but don’t expect it to last under the sweltering sun in Manila.
In an air conditioned room, eyeliner stayed put for hours even without primer or foundation!
If you want a cheaper eyeliner than Majolica Majorca, get this one instead! The Ladykin At the Party Vividline Pen Eyeliner is long wearing and doesn’t irritate eyes.
