I love a dramatic cat eye, and this requires a fantastic liquid eyeliner if it’s going to last all day long and look even. My favorite is still Stila, but I’m always willing to try other brands to see how they compare. Recently, I had the chance to try the Ciaté London Fierce Flicks Precision Tip Liquid Liner. This product is $19 at Sephora and similar retailers.
Basically, the only thing I liked about this eyeliner was the name. “Fierce Flicks” is an adorable name. Everything else was a big disappointment.
First, the claim of a “precision tip” was sadly lacking. I found the tip to be too wide and not pointed enough to get a clean winged look. This might be fine if you’re just lining the rim of the upper eye, but it’s not precise enough for anything fancy.
The texture of the product was also strangely patchy. I had to go over the line so many time to try to get the shade even, and that’s something I don’t usually struggle with even when using drugstore eyeliners. Very disappointing!
Finally, this product never really dried down. It smeared a bit and parts of it flaked off and I needed to reapply throughout the work day. I hate being so overwhelmingly negative in a review, but I felt the need to be honest. I would avoid this eyeliner at all costs! Even if someone offers it to you for free, it’s just not worth the hassle.
