Oh my gosh, I only just realised how long it's been since I did a makeup review. Has it really been three months? Anyway, here is a quick review on Koji's Dolly Wink eyeliner pencil, both the old and new versions. For those who don't know, Koji is a Japanese brand that offers a lot of cute looking, affordable products that really put some of our drugstore make up here in the west to shame; on cost and quality Here are the swatches:
As you can see, they did end up reformulating the new version a little. The pigmentation is a lot stronger on first swipe. There seems to be one other difference between the two that I've noticed (other than the packaging design, duh) and that is the staying power. On a regular day I only put black eyeliner on my upper water line, both liners are water and sweat proof, but I've found the newer version does tend to wander into the inner corners of my eyes a little. The old version, once applied, wouldn't budge, even on a 35 degree day. Aside from a little smudging, the new formula still lasts just as long. It's also a lot easier to apply, I don't have to work it into the lash line as much to get that intensity anymore, it glides on seamlessly.
These, for me are, the best pencil eyeliners I have ever tried. If you're after a great eyeliner that won't stray too much in hot weather, I can't recommend these enough.
