Review: NAF METO Super Black Waterproof Eyeliner

♫ B.A.P - Hurricane

You know me, I'm a total liquid eyeliner maniac. Today I'll be testing a cute little liquid eyeliner, NAF METO Super Black Waterproof Eyeliner, which was kindly sent by KKCenterHK for review.

NAF METO Super Black Waterproof Eyeliner - Glitter Black
The illustration in the plastic packaging is super eye-catching and cute, with a rockstar bunny and two man tou-like characters in front of a bright yellow striped background.

Back
Although the product is made in Taiwan, the wordings on the back are in Japanese, with a Chinese translated sticker on the back.

Look at the cute designs on the tube~
The eyeliner itself is a sleek black plastic tube that has cute metallic pink designs printed on it. Just look at the cute little bow, hearts, stars and other kawaii girly patterns on it!

Size comparison
The eyeliner tube is quite small and travel-friendly, about the size of a regular tube of lip balm.


There are two variants of this eyeliner, and I happened to receive the one in Glitter Black. The front of the packaging claims that it is waterproof, long lasting (up to 36 hours?!), quick drying and can be layered for full opacity. Gotta find out if it's true!

Fine brush applicator
The brush applicator is attached to the cap of the eyeliner tube. Pretty standard; the brush is soft yet firm enough to create a cat-eye flick.

Heavy swatch (left) and single swipe swatch (right)
NAF METO Super Black Waterproof Eyeliner in Glitter Black is exactly just like its name describes: a deep shiny black eyeliner with fine micro-glitter. The micro-glitter is multicoloured, but gold is the prominent one that can be seen, which gives the eyeliner a slight dark brown tinge. Very pretty indeed. (✿◠‿◠)
However, I don't think it really lived up to its various claims (except the opacity). Take a look at the 'test results' below.

Test time!
The left swatch (thick) was several layers, while the right was only one swipe. It took more than a minute for the single layer to dry. Once it dries, it is smudge free, but it will flake off if you rub with more pressure. I also tested its waterproof claims and it doesn't fare well - it rubbed straight off when it came into contact with water.


✓ Pros: Deep shiny black eyeliner with pretty micro-glitter, cute travel-friendly packaging, doesn't smudge (after fully dry), great for evening or party makeup looks.
✗ Cons: Not waterproof, takes time to fully dry, easily rubbed off.


You can purchase the NAF METO eyeliner, and a wide variety of other eyeliners and makeup, from KKCenterHK.

Sakuranko: Yes, the packaging is really handy, but the waterproof claims are kinda off. :(
