Cailyn Liquid Eyeliners are competing for the win

I’m on a liquid eyeliner expedition to find the best. For years I wore nothing but gel eyeliners and while I still love them I think I was just ready for a change. In this search I’ve been testing a lot of eyeliners, both pencil and liquid, to see what which ones are the winners. So far I brought you my first eyeliner quest here and then reviewed the matte liquid eyeliners from Ellis Faas here. Today brings you Cailyn and their liquid eyeliners plus a pencil eyeliner. Let’s see if they can take the top spot in this competition.

The above picture is to show you how I love my Cailyn Gel Eyeliners. I reviewed these and still recommend them although I did get a strange texture in my Chocolate Mousse one from a subscription box. Other than that one though they are amazing liners. I haven’t given up gel eyeliners though since they are longer lasting than any other liners I own. Cailyn doesn’t have to worry about me and their gel liners, that’s for sure.

My original quest was to find the perfect brown liquid eyeliner but that’s not as easy as finding the perfect black liquid eyeliner. So many companies only make black liquids and ignore the browns. Cailyn Cosmetics makes two different types of liquid eyeliners and one does come in brown although I don’t have that one (y.e.t.).

I do have it though in both Silver and Blue Shimmer and I love it. Both of these were in my Wantable subscription boxes which is great since Cailyn is a brand I am very impressed with. I wore the Blue Shimmer the other day with a neutral brown eye and it was the perfect pop of color. I found that it was easy to use and dried in an appropriate amount of time. With a liquid liner that has such a short brush you do have to be careful not to get it on your eyelashes but that’s the only thing to worry about. It’s close to perfect otherwise.

The other liquid eyeliner from Cailyn is their idefine Liquid Eyeliner (sent for review). The only downside to idefine is it only comes in black ($18). I want this in every color. It’s that terrific! It’s a cross between a felt tip and a floppy tip.

I find this incredibly easy to apply because the tip is thin enough to get a fine line yet it’s sturdier than most liquid brushes. It’s not a brush though it may look brushlike. So many of the liquid eyeliners I’ve found apply too thick for my taste. This is just perfect. The best thing is that it lasts beautifully and it’s a true dark black.

Cailyn isn’t done though with eyeliner since they make some fabulous gel pencils. The Gel Glider Eyeliner Pencils ($17) come in 6 colors (black, chocolate, green, blue, purple and charcoal) and they do what they say – they GLIDE on. They are so smooth and easy to use.

The Chocolate (received for review) is a great brown. I love a brown that looks brown and not black. I also love that this is an eyeliner I can sharpen. I’ve got too many self sharpening liners that either break off or don’t get a fine enough line for me. Cailyn stuck with a real pencil which I appreciate. I will be able to use this exactly the way I want to – sharp and down to the end.

I think I could live happily ever after with Cailyn’s collection of eyeliners. They know what they are doing when it comes to these types of products. I can say for sure that idefine is in the running to win the gold medal for black liquid eyeliners!! Have you tried any of these Cailyn eyeliners? What did you think? — Marcia

  1. OOOOH! Now I want to try Cailyn’s other eyeliners, too! I only knew about the gel liners (which I ADORE!) Time to run to the website to see if I can snag one of those identifine pens!!!

  2. I’d really like to try the gel pencils!

  3. Another great find!

  4. @Carol and Cindy, I’m so obsessed with liquid eyeliner these days. I have many more reviews to go but Cailyn is one of the best.

  5. @Natasha, I wish that Cailyn made the idefine in brown. Maybe they’ll see these comments and know we want more colors!
