Majolica Majorca Perfect Automatic Liner

I've ranted before that I don't like liquid eyeliners. I found their built-in applicators difficult to use - they're either too thin, too stiff, too awkward to maneuver around the contours of the eyes. Don't get me wrong, I love the precise effect and lasting power of liquid liners, but the applicator is usually the deal breaker for me.

And then I met the Majolica Majorca Perfect Automatic Liner (P695).

I am in love with the brush of this automatic pen. It's made of synthetic hair that's actually close to the quality of a professional makeup brush. It's soft and delivers a perfect line with no fuss. It does take a bit of practice,so you have to try it for a couple of times to get a feel for it.

I like the brush so much that I plan to use it for my gel eyeliners when I run out of the Majo liner! :D Anyway, it's time to talk about the formula.

 

What I love about the product

  • Stays on all day with zero smudging. Where pencil eyeliners would smudge, liquid liners are definitely more reliable.
  • I particularly like the color of RD 605. It's a reddish purplish shade that brings out the brown of one's eyes. Not typical like black or brown. This Majo liner comes in a lot of gorgeous shades.
  • Dries quickly.
  • The click pen mechanism works pretty well. Two or three clicks and I get the right amount on the brush. 
  • Comes with seals to ensure that the product is 100% fresh. The liquid itself is sealed in until the applicator punctures the pen chamber. The turner at the bottom is also sealed with a sticker.
  • The cap goes on tightly, so you can be sure that the product won't dry up prematurely.
  • Affordable at P695 (1.3mL) in SM Makati.

What I don't like

  • The product is pigmented, but it is not as opaque as I would like. It takes two swipes to get a solid line.

 

Recommendations

The Majolica Majorca Perfect Automatic Liner is best for girls who want their eyeliners to look more natural - as if the line is just an extension of their eyelashes. This liner delivers a thick or thin line, depending on your preference. If you want something more dramatic, the color is easily to build up.

Buy this if you like gel eyeliners but don't like the fuss that goes into using them. These Majo eyeliners are quite convenient to tote around and use in a jiffy!

Verdict

I think this Majo eyeliner is a great deal! Why? Because I get a nice eyeliner for natural looks like the one I showed above, plus a new gel eyeliner brush when I run out. Win-win.

RD 605 is so pretty! I've been looking for a shade like that in a gel liner. I've never tried felt tip liners because I swear by my gel ones, though.

Ooh..this looks very promising! But I always have problems with eye liner as it always smudges esp. when it's hot (maybe because I have really chinita eyes) :) Do you have tips on how eye liners can be smudge proof? I always smudge it with my fingers or cotton buds to lessen the mess then dab with powder but it doesn't seem to work. Currently using the Nichido Girls Night Out pencil liner. :) Thanks!

i like how you can control the amount of the product on a pen liner.
can you do a blog on "what will you buy on MAC with P2500? for beginners"
i'm already 18 years old but still don't have any decent makeup.
thankyou!

I really like this eyeliner! It's the first product I bought from Majolica Majorca. I got it from SM Makati, too. (I went to SM North Edsa last week, only to find out that Majo is not opening a counter there until March 26.)

I like how it stays put once it's dry. Some might find the formula too runny or watery. Compared to other liquid eyeliners I've tried, it takes a while to dry, but I think it lets me correct mistakes quickly without ruining my eye makeup.

I'm definitely going to buy a back-up when they open a counter at an SM branch near home. :)

hi liz! :) because of your good majolica majorca reviews, i went to sm makati this afternoon and got myself Majolica Majorca's perfect automatic liner and lash expander mascara. because of my purchases, they gave me a cute gold pouch for free. :)

i got the perfect automatic liner in the brown-black shade. i'm quite torn though, because all of them shades are pretty, it's hard to choose just one. (i also like blue-black & olive-black). Oh, I'm planning to collect all shades. haha. :)

I recently tried this and I love it. Prior to using the automatic liner, I've been using the liquid eyeliner from Etude House (cheap at 200 only). This was so much better than my previous liner. It's easier to use, just clicking instead of dipping in a pot and the brush is indeed soft.

The finish is also more natural, it doesn't look like a whole new layer pasted on your skin. I recommend this especially for those who are only starting to use liquid liners. This will help "train" you in putting on liquid liners. :)

Will this be a great alternative for K-Palette's Real Lasting Eyeliner? Thanks! :)
