Eye essentials as of late 2015 anniesbeautyblog1

Being the makeup snob that you all know by now that I am, there aren’t too many products that I easily include in my Holy Grail list of awesome products that I will always and forever recommend with my eyes closed!

For a product to make it on THE list it has to be tested thoroughly for a couple of months, in different weather conditions and different situations… And to be a repurchase! At least once!

Therefore, I can count my HG makeup products on the fingers of one hand: Chanel Le Volume Mascara – the waterproof formula, the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light, the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Liner in Pilow Talk, whatever cream eyeshadow shade from Tom Ford and By Terry Ombre Blackstars ( you’ll definitely see a complete review on all my By Terry Ombre Blackstars pretty soon! )…

… and now the newest entry, the Tom Ford Eye Defining Pen, in shade 01 Deeper.


I did tried a couple of eye liners before from brands like Dior, Chanel and Clarins,  but nothing beats this Tom Ford one in terms of application, opaqueness, saturation and longevity. It is the easiest to apply – literally just one swipe and your winged liner is “on fleek”, not to mention that you’re ready to go in a matter of seconds, the most opaque, matte and saturated with colour from all the ones that I have used ( the darkest black liner ) and it lasts throughout the day without moving around – even if you have the oiliest of lids, once this sets is there for good… Even if you danced all night long!

It comes with a double ended tip, a slimmer one for precision and a thicker one to draw and fill in the flick. Both are so easy to use and the final result is close to perfection, even if you’re not the most experimented person when it comes to applying eye liner.

Here you have some examples of how the Tom Ford Eye Defining Pen looks on me. Keep in mind that I am one of those unexperimented persons I was mentioning before!

Bottom line, the Tom Ford Eye Defining Pen, is one product I would definitely recommend buying with the eyes closed, one of those makeup items that absolutely justifies its hefty pricing.

What about you, Beautiful? What’s your favourite eye liner? What should I try next? What’s your HG? Do you have a funny “incident” that involves the use of an eye liner?

As always thanks for reading and…

See you soon!
