The Soap and Glory Supercat Eyeliner is one of their most talked about products, and one of the bestselling drugstore eyeliners but I’ve never really understood the hype as I found it quite stiff and hard, making it difficult to create eyeliner flicks. For the Summer, Soap and Glory released a range of new products including the UltiMATTE Collection Eyeshadow Palette which I reviewed here on my blog previously, and they also released the new Soap and Glory Supercat Skinny Easy Precision Black Ink Eyeliner which might be the liner with the longest name in history. The Soap and Glory Supercat Skinny Easy Precision Black Ink Eyeliner £6.50 is described as having a super-skinny tip that lets you draw ultra-thin lines with straight-forward precision, with a smudge-resistant long wearing formula.
The nib of the liner has really great flexibility, but it’s not too flexible that it becomes difficult to control – it really is the perfect balance of the two, and the nib flexes with the contours of the eyelid for the perfect winged liner.
I find the nib so much easier than the original Supercat liner’s nib which doesn’t move, and the flexibility of the nib allows you to create a line as thick or as thin as you wish by using extra pressure which I really like as I prefer a super fine line in the inner corners of my eye, which gradually thickens all the way to my flicks. In terms of the formula, it really is fantastic as it’s incredibly pigmented and very black which doesn’t bleed like some liners can do.
I completely agree with the claims that the formula is smudge-free and longwearing, as it does last all day without crumbling or running. I even accidentally rubbed my eye, forgetting I was wearing eye makeup which is always the worst but my liner looked just as perfect as it did when I first applied it. Once the liner has dried, it does have a slightly shiny finish which I’m not overjoyed about as I much prefer my liner to be matte but I can overlook the shininess as the formula, and nib are so perfect especially considering it’s only £6.50.
