Review Overview

Eye Ink is a basic felt-tip eyeliner pen that fails to deliver solid, rich, even color. Instead, you get a watered-down version that easily rubs off and fades as the day wears on.

The shade selection offers a variety of hues, but that isn't enough to make Eye Ink worth it (even at this price). For superior options, check out our Best Eyeliners list.

Pros:
  • Shade range extends beyond the basics of black and brown.
Cons:
  • Colors go on unevenly and look diluted.
  • Fades and rubs off with little provocation.

Brand Overview

Palladio-At-A-Glance

Strengths: Impressive powder and liquid foundation options; Rice Paper; Herbal Lip Gloss; Eyeshadow Primer; Baked Blush; Herbal Tinted Lip Balm; company provides complete ingredient lists on their website.

Weaknesses: Poorly made eyeliners, including Liquid Eyeliner and Eye Ink Felt Tip Liquid Eye Liner; highly fragranced eyeshadow quad; potentially irritating lip stain; poorly formulated skin-care products.

Palladio started as a small, Florida-based brand, and has been slowly carving out its niche at well-known beauty supply stores in North America and abroad through a growing network of resellers. The brand has attracted consumer interest because it's affordable and offers high-quality products.

One of the other draws is their brand tagline: "herbal & vitamin enriched cosmetics." Surprisingly, many Palladio products lack the ingredients to back up their herbal claim, and several of the products that do contain plants and vitamins have packaging that won't keep them stable during use, something that's true for lots of makeups that boast of antioxidant content. Still, this brand does have several products with impressive amounts of antioxidants, including a liquid foundation, eyeshadow primer, and lip gloss in decent packaging that will help keep the ingredients stable.

While the enticing herbal/vitamin claim isn't justified by all their products, many Palladio makeup products are worth checking out, and the prices are great, but stay away from the skin-care products because they are problematic, for several reasons, as you will see in our reviews. The most impressive products are the foundations and the tinted Rice Paper. The only makeup missteps are the liquid eyeliners, whose performance pales in comparison to comparably priced drugstore options.

In the United States, United Kingdom, and Mexico, Palladio is widely available at Sally Beauty. Palladio products also are available abroad through reseller websites, which are listed in the FAQ section of Palladio’s U.S. website.

Needs Lots of Improvement

I like the felt tip for putting on the eyeliner. It works great, and, this is the ONLY one of its kind that comes in a light (taupe) color. However it doesn't work well for very long. Only after 2 or 3 uses, the liquid won't come out much. It seems to only last a few days or a wk. Even shaking won't make it work right. On the other hand, I had one that leaked out so much liquid and made a mess. I would NOT recommend this until they fix the problem. I will stop using it until they fix this!
