For a cheap cosmetic, it doesn’t come in a cheap package. It is actually quite good since it’s packaged in a box (compared to other eyeliners where they usually only use plastic wrapping). The box’s made of thick glossy paper and it’s obvious that orange dominates the colour. On it we can find information about the eyeliner (manufacture date, expired date, manufacturer, ingredients, and instructions). It is also said that this eyeliner is available in 4 colours (black, blue, brown, and transparent). Fortunately, I’ve been searching all over places but could only find the black one (please do tell me if you find the other colours).
Inside the box, the eyeliner sits nicely and safely. The eyeliner itself comes in black glossy plastic material with gold-coloured information printed on it. I love how they put the information there. It means that the manufacturer is responsible of what they sell. What I love more is the heart-shape cap. It’s definitely cute.
BRUSH AND SWATCH
The brush handle is quite long which can be a problem for those who aren’t experienced using liquid eyeliner. However, the brush itself has good quality. It’s soft yet stiff enough to make a fine line on your eyes. The consistency of this eyeliner is quite watery where it takes more than 3 minutes to dry. These are pictures I took when I tested it on my hand.

It took more than 3 minutes to dry perfectly. I didn’t know whether I applied it too thick or it’s because of its consistency. However, the result is a black matte line, which I like so much since not many eyeliners give matte results (most of them are glossy-finished line which I don’t mind though).
WATERPROOF AND SMUDGEPROOF TESTS

So, I can conclude that this eyeliner is waterproof as long as you don’t scrub your eyes. Once you scrub your eyes, it will fall off into flakes. Thank God it’s only flakes without any smudge. I can’t imagine having black eyes as if someone has just punch them. >.<“
Overall, I like this eyeliner. It’s suitable for those who are practising applying liquid eyeliner and starting putting on make up. Its affordable price is great for those with low budget. I guess these are the reason why so many Indonesian girls love this baby so much.
