Hey makeup junkies!
Everybody knows what a trendy word cushion means. Cushions can be foundations, blushes and lip products. However, it was a revelation for me when I learnt that cushion liners exist too. By the way, cushion foundation was the first product I used in this format.
Tony Moly Inked Cushion Gel Liner
What the manufacturer says about it:
Formulated to go on intense like ink and glide on light as a feather, our liquid gel-type cushion liner never skips, clumps, or drags, helping you achieve the perfect winged look. The cushion pot helps control the amount of product that is picked up and the built-in brush is designed to work perfectly with the formula so you always get an intense payoff with precision and ease.
The Koreans know how to make the package eye-catching. At least they do for me.
The product comes in matte paper package, where you can find all the information in 2 languages: Korean and English.
On the front you can see a cushion contour.
The packaging looks like a quill with a feather in it.
Material: glossy plastic.
The quill has a feather, which is actually a brush for application.
The handle is made in the form of a feather and it’s very nice to hold. The brush is tightly packed and has a sharp tip. Well, it’s very handy.
The upper part of the ink screws open and shows us a cushion inside of it.
To apply a product you have to dip the brush into the cushion and start working.
Country: South Korea
Volume: 2 g
Price: I bought it in Seoul for about $18.
Where to buy: Korean stores or Korean online shops
Use within 6 months after unpacking
Shade and texture
The Inked Cushion Gel Liner is available in 5 shades:
I have it in 03 Pearl Brown.
It’s a red and brown shade with shimmer to it. The shimmer is golden and very fine.
In the shade
In the sun
It’s not just a regular eyeliner, it’s a texture eyeliner. My point is that if you apply the product twice on one and the same place, it will look somehow... prominent. More than that, if you push the brush a tad too hard, it can drag the layers. So, don’t push it. One more peculiarity of this eyeliner is that it dries out too quickly, so you have to apply it quite fast.
The product is fragrance-free.
Directions to use
Dip the attached brush into the cushion formula and make sure the brush is evenly coated.
Take the brush close to the lash line and use the precise pointed tip to draw your desired look.
As I’ve already mentioned, the liner dries out in tracks, so it’s impossible to draw the line in the first go. You’ll have to go inside the pot a few times.
You can draw a thin line or make it more expressive.
The ink has one more downside. It dries out on a brush very quickly too, so I have to remove the residue with a tissue every time after use.
The lines stay put throughout the day and don’t crease. Moreover, the line tip doesn’t fade.
I’ve never been in the rain or snow with this eyeliner on, so I can’t say anything about its behavior in such weather.
The product removes with warm water effortlessly, but I always prefer washing it off with micellar water and it removes easy-breezy then. It comes off in patches while removing, which proves my guess about the texture type of this eyeliner.
Bottom line: It’s a fascinating and new experience for me to try this type of cosmetic. The cushion foundation is nothing new, but the cushion liner is something out of the ordinary. Is it worth your attention? In my book, it is. It is easy to use and looks peculiar. I had a little bit of hard time applying it, but I believe it will be different with girls who are more skillful in this makeup area.
