Sailor Moon Liquid Eyeliner Review

The review that no one has been waiting for will be brought to you, by me!

I picked up the Sailor Moon liquid eyeliner at Don Quixote a month and a half ago. The package, which I don't have a picture of, was just too cute to resist. I'm a sucker for almost anything with Sailor Moon on it...especially "old school" Sailor Moon (sorry, Crystal fans. Though, this necklace is fab.).

Review: 
Anyways, the name is "Miracle Romance Cutie Moon Rod Liquid Eyeliner." Like most Japanese liquid eyeliners it has a thin brush. I've used similar eyeliners from Kate and Tony Moly with good results. But, I was pretty disappointed in this one.

The tip was about the same size as others I've used, but it was like taking a pencil and trying to trace a line on my eyelids. Slightly more effort than Kate. 



The eyeliner didn't smudge off and is fine all day, or at least for a workday. Now, it didn't smudge off because I am pretty careful about not touching my eyelashes if I have any make-up like stuff on them. However, if you were to accidentally rub your eye lightly, it would all probably rub off. When I am finished for the day, I can rub the line off with two light rubs.

What I'm trying to say is that compared to Bobbi Brown's Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner or even Kate, this stuff will come off a lot easier.

Price:
Prices start from 1,200 yen, which is USD$12 at a $1/100yen exchange rate. A little pricey. But, you get a cap that turns your eyeliner into a fucking rod, so...

Where to get it:
If you're in Japan, you can find this at Don Quixote, drugstores like Matsumoto Kiyoshi or online (Rakuten, etc.)
Outside of Japan, you'll pay a bit more on YesStyle and other sites. 

Buy or pass?
If you are a make-up guru and you know your stuff, my guess is that you won't be impressed by this makeup. If you are a Sailor Moon fan, you kinda do make-up and OMFG SAILOR MOON, then yes. Because even after you've exhausted your eyeliner you have a Sailor Moon rod/stick and you can act out your Sailor Moon fantasies at home.
