Charlotte Tilbury's The Feline Flick Quick Fine Line Shodo Pen comes with a lengthy name and an exotic inspiration story, but does that make for an eyeliner that gets the job done? The answer is yes; in fact, this liquid liner performs so well that it easily earned our highest rating!
So what exactly is The Feline Flick? It's essentially a liquid liner pen, similar to those you'll find among most makeup lines. Charlotte Tilbury says the design of the pen is inspired by shodo, the intricate art of Japanese calligraphy. While the ultra-slim tip certainly helps with precision application, it's not exactly a unique design. We admit the description does add a bit of romance to the product's backstory, though.
Where this product really makes its mark (so to speak) is in its ease of application and performance over time. As mentioned above, the super-slim point makes it a breeze for even those who don't have the steadiest of hands to apply this liner right along the lash line. It's also easy to thicken the line, and complete the cat-eye design that gives this product its name.
The Feline Flick only comes in one color, a jet black that goes on glossy but dries to a bold matte finish. It only takes a few seconds to dry, and once it does, it stays put. We wore this through a full work day and it didn't budge—no flaking, no smudging, and no fading. In fact, it looked almost the same when we were ready to take it off as it did when we first applied it.
Speaking of removal, even though this liner is tenacious during its wear time, it comes off easily with a makeup remover or even your favorite cleanser (always a plus).
Because of its simple application and top-notch performance, Charlotte Tilbury's The Feline Flick Quick Line Shodo Pen gets our enthusiastic recommendation. If you've been wanting to check out a product from this popular makeup artist line, this is definitely one to consider!
