Flower Beauty Style Eyes Liquid Eyeliner Review
If you’ve been following me for a while, you must know my love for liquid eyeliners. While some people find them a bit difficult to work with, my case is just the opposite. I feel more comfortable with liquid liners than gel or pencil. So when Nykaa gifted me a few Flower Beauty products to try, my hands went straight to the eyeliner. Let’s see how the product fared out for me and whether I recommend you guys to give this product a try.

My Thoughts on Flower Beauty Style Eyes Liquid Eyeliner
Ever since I got my hands on this Flower Beauty eyeliner, I’ve been wearing it whenever I go out and sometimes when I’m at home doing absolutely nothing. I’ve always had a sweet crush on Drew Barrymore and her high-quality makeup line just made me fall in love with her again.
The Flower Beauty eyeliner has a sleek, glossy black tube packaging and it comes in an outer cardboard box that mentions product details.
The applicator of the flower beauty liquid eyeliner is similar to L’Oréal Lineur Intense Felt Tip Eyeliner but thinner. It was one of the worst makeup purchases for me because of the horrible formula, texture and longevity but the only thing good about that Loreal eyeliner was the applicator.
It’s not your regular brush applicator that you get in liquid eyeliners, neither a felt tip; Flower Beauty describes it as a “Flexi-style tip”. The applicator is thin so you can create a sharp wing and it’s flexible with a long wand so you have a good control while drawing the lines. But it’ll take you a little time to get used to the incredibly thin applicator but once you do, you’ll be able to draw the sharpest wings.
Texture & Application
The consistency of the Flower Beauty eyeliner is not too liquidy and it sets to a matte finish on drying. The applicator glides smoothly over the lids without tugging/ dragging but the biggest downside is that the eyeliner takes a lot of time (say 5 minutes or so) to dry down completely. If you have hooded eyes, you might risk the product transferring to your lids. You won’t experience any bleeding with this eyeliner and it’s water-resistant (not waterproof)
The pigmentation of the Flower Beauty eyeliner is spot on! The shade Onyx Ink is a proper black but definitely not the blackest black eyeliner I’ve ever seen.
A common problem with most of the drugstore eyeliners is that they look ash-black instead of true black on drying down but this is not one of those liners. It looks as black on drying down as it does when it’s wet and gives an opaque finish in just one coat but layers beautifully if you want to go for a second one.
This eyeliner stays for 7-8 hours, it just doesn’t budge as long as you don’t rub your eyes. Once you rub the eyes, everything just comes off.
I have very oily lids and that combined with humid weather is a big no-no for most of the eye makeup. But this one stays pretty much all day if left untouched.
If you’re in the market for a cruelty-free, drugstore black liquid eyeliner that stays all day then Flower Beauty Style Eyes in shade Onyx Ink is definitely a good-buy. It does come with a slight con of not drying down fast but I’m up for trying out other colours from the range. Keep an eye on sales because I’ve seen it go as low as ~INR 650 on Nykaa and USD 5 on Flower Beauty’s official website.
