Review: Nichido Minerals Precise Liner

Hello Pinay Beauties! It is Sunday and today I wanted to share this quick review of the Nichido Minerals Precise Liner.
Nichido have a few liquid eyeliners available, they have one for around ₱60 which has a brush and they also have a pen type liquid liner. I personally do not prefer the thin brush for applying liquid liner and I have heard bad reviews about the pen type. So the safest bet for me is this one, which has a felt tip.
Packaging wise, the packaging is really small and simple, which I like. It has shimmers on the packaging, so I was afraid that the liner will have shimmers too, but luckily it didn't.

I think it is only available in Black (I am not sure about this though). It contains 2.5 ml of product for ₱150, which is not bad at all.
As stated, this baby has a felt tip liner, which I really prefer because it is not flimsy and creates precise lines. The handle is also just the right length to hold the wand steadily.
The color that I got is Black, and first impressions when I swatched this on my hands is that it is not as pigmented as I wanted it to be. I felt like I need to build it up to achieve the opacity that I am used to.
It dries into a matte black, which is great! The first local liner that I used is the one from Fashion 21, and I hated the fact that it has a glossy finish. Application went smoothly for me, it did take a little while for it to dry so make sure not to blink too fast so you won't have any transfers.

Here's what it looks like when applied:
As you can see, it is not as black as other liners. If you want it to be super black, then you will need to add another layer. It didn't sting my eyes though, which is great.

Now it proves to be long lasting, waterproof and no transfer. I wear this one time when we out and I noticed that it smudged a little 3 hours after, but I am glad that it didn't crack unlike other liners out there. Just make sure that you do not rub it or it will easily come off, which is great during application so if you mess up you can easily correct it. Also, at the end of day, it was fairly easy to remove.

What I like about this product:
- Cheap for ₱150.
- Locally and widely available.
- Matte finish.
- Felt tip applicator provides precise application.
- Did not sting my eyes.
- Suitable for beginners.
- Rubs off, making it easier to correct the line or to remove it at the end of day.
- Decent wear time, took 3 hours before it smudge on my sweat and oily eyes.

What I didn't like about this product:
- Not as pigmented. Need to layer the product to be super black.

And that is it for my review! This product has been in the market for so long now and it is worth the chance. If you want something affordable and if you prefer a matte liner with felt tip applicator, this is a good choice but if you want something more opaque and really lasts a long time, there are other options in the market and you may want to give this a pass.

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed this. I will see you in my next post loves, goodluck!

    The first liquid liner I bought was from Nichido! It's good that they now have a mineral variant!
