REM PEN 2-in-1
ARGAN EYE SHADOW & GEL LINER
For me, subtle is sexy, so usually avoid liquid liners, which tend to have a glossy finish and give too loud a look for everyday life. Thankfully, this crayon-shaped, gel liner creates a pleasant, matte effect on the eye. While the Pen glided on much better than I expected, it still took a couple of extra clicks and and strokes to disperse enough liner to reach the length of my lids. The pre-loaded eye shadow is a nice convenience and the subtle splash of shimmer it gives it a fun flair. But what I like best is that the sparkle it deposits doesn’t overpower the liner–it’s clean and unobtrusive, and slightly elevates the look.
Both mixtures contain argan oil–the line’s signature ingredient–but magically, it doesn’t make the product feel greasy. In all, this is as trusty and solid a pen as any I would pack with my other school supplies.–Kira Muratova
