Ladies and non lady folk, I present to you the Revlon Makeup Corrector Pen.
I've been trying to scope this out ever since I saw it advertised on some makeup site and I have never ever found it in the UK. You will surely remember that I reviewed the DoubleTwist mascara by Revlon. I was also sent the makeup corrector pen.
My first thoughts on it are that it's a lot slimmer than I thought it would be but it looks like something I have used (on paper) before but I can't put my finger on it..The tip of the pen is black and not white as I had originally thought.
I can't apply mascara without having some of it transfer to my upper lid so I thought the pen would be perfect for that. I applied my mascara and some Bobbi Brown gel liner and then decided to test the pen out.
It took the lid residue mascara off so easily and left behind no oily residue at all. Revlon suggest cleaning the tip with some tissue after using it so I did this and the mascara came off the pen and onto the tissue.
I decided to put it through its paces and make the eyeliner thinner and it worked a total charm! I've used it to tidy up eye shadow mistakes too and it leaves you with natural skin (not with the film you sometimes get when you use a conventional remover) so you can reapply your shadow a nano second after amending your mistake.
The only thing which holds this product back is the fact that you can't find it anywhere. I've checked a million and one Boots and practically every Superdrug, Tescos and Sainsburys around where I live and have never ever seen it. I saw it online once but when I went to put it in my basket, it was (surprise surprise) out of stock.
I used it before Xmas when I was going down to Essex, I fell asleep in the car and had no time to reapply my makeup before we went out and this worked great tidying up smudges and neatening up my cat flicked eyeliner. Which reminds me, when it's snowing heavily, never ever hold your Bobbi Brown gel liner in your hand because the second you get out of the car, you will open your hands and the gel liner will roll away into traffic. This will result in a mad panic and you sliding across said snow in the dark to pick it up.
I also realise that it would have made sense to take a pic of how well it erased makeup mistakes but I am scatty of brain and kinda forgot in all my excitement. However, I did take pics of the instructions/promises and the ingredients for you guys.
If you CAN get this product anywhere, PICK IT UP...and then go pay for it. I don't want to encourage shoplifting ;)
