Glossier’s New Pro Tip Liquid Eyeliner’s Staying Power Is No Joke, and Here’s the Proof
Whether you're a winged eyeliner aficionado or like a simple flick across your lids, Glossier's latest launch is for you. The brand recently launched Pro Tip, a liquid eyeliner that is now part of its permanent collection. As someone who has an affinity for the makeup category — eyeliner is the only makeup product that I use on a daily basis — I was excited to test it out.
Inside Pro Tip's body (which is similar to Brow Flick's, except in the brand's signature pink hue) is a liquid formula that is pitch black. At first, I had to coax the ink out of the pen, shaking and sweeping the brush against the back of my hand, before it finally dispensed a smooth stream of the stuff (so don't be alarmed if your pen doesn't dispense that much when you begin to swatch it). It had a slick — but not watery — consistency with just enough play time to maneuver before it dried down. I drew on my extra large wings, and found that it took two layers of the liquid liner to get the deep, dark black hue that I love for my eye look.
To test out the brand's claims that the eyeliner was smudge and water resistant, I put it through the most rigorous tests I could think of. Read on to learn more.
