Guys, the CELLNCO Pen Liner Lets You Wing Out Like a Freakin’ Pro

What happens when a gel liner type of girl decides to give the CELLNCO Pen Liner a go? To quote her: “Y’all. OMG.” ‘Nuff said. (Of course, if you want a bit more detail, keep on reading to find out why.)



Four things I can’t leave the house without:


Keys, phone, wallet, eyeliner.


Out of those four things, I’m probably going to feel the most naked without my eyeliner. What I’m trying to say is, eyeliner is important to me, and a good eyeliner is as precious as gold.

Last month, W2 sent me a package full of various products. I kind of groaned when I spotted two liquid pen liners by CELLNCO, because I’m a gel liner girl at heart. I’ve always found I have better control, less feathering into my crepey lids, and a better wear time with gel. Given those points, I really didn’t expect much from these liners, but I wanted to be diplomatic so I decided to try them right away.


Y’all. OMG.


CELLNCO is a brand I hadn’t heard of until recently, and they’ve given me nothing but excellent results from the products I’ve tried so far, so I should have known these were going to be better than I initially expected. CELLNCO Eye Love Pen Liner comes in two shades, Sexy Black and Cutie Brown. The first thing I noticed when removing the lid is how extraordinarily sharp the pen is. It’s a 0.05mm fine “brush” tip (I’d say this is more like a pen than a brush, but it is technically a very sharp brush) that delivers the sharpest line I’ve ever gotten from a liquid liner. Guys, this thing is SHARP. The precision this liner delivers is the makeup equivalent of this gif:

It does not mess around. But don’t think that I mean that this liner is stiff. It’s not at all! I’ve had sharp yet stiff liquid pen liners that felt like I was slicing into my lids. This liner has just the right amount of give without warping the point of the tip. It delivers a rich, precise line that lets you wing out like a freakin’ pro. What it truly reminds me of is a good nib on a quality calligraphy pen.


Like this but with liner instead:

Another great point of pride for these liners are the colors. Yes, it only comes in two colors, but they’re so good. I absolutely LOVE Cutie Brown. It’s my perfect neutral brown; it doesn’t pull too red nor too grey. It’s the best. And Sexy Black is of course as sexy as my OG sexy goddess Hyori:

It’s a rich true black that doesn’t pull navy at all. Niiiiice.


The CELLNCO Pen Liner is waterproof once it sets, just like it claims. It lasts on me for the entire eight hours of the day I wear my face before I remove my eye makeup. But I do say that with the caveat that I do not have oily eyelids, so I can’t speak to its performance if your lids are oily. But I have a pretty good feeling about it working for just about anyone due to its tenacity.


Even if you’re not normally a fan of liquid pen liners like I was, I urge you to give this liner a try. You can thank me later!

I am a liquid pen liner kind of gal. I've tried gel, but in humid/ hot weather like Texas that is a smear waiting to happen. I used to love the Milani Eye Tech Extreme...but they changed their formula and its too watery now. I currently adore the Hard Candy Stroke of Gorgeous felt tip liner. It has precision and extremely long lasting without any cracks or crumbles. I'm talkin' 48 hours of perfection. The biggest downside is how hard it is to get off. I'll have to try this and see how it compares.


I find a good cleansing oil or an oil-based lip/eye remover can get anything off, even the waterproof mascara that basically pulls my lashes off. What have you tried?


I must be unlucky. I use something to remover my eye make-up, then the rest of my make-up and finally wash my face.

I've tried more eye makeup removers since I have sensitive skin:
Aprilskin's Magic All-Kill lip & eye remover (This irritated my skin and didn't work)
Bobbi Brown Instant Long-Wear Makeup Remover ( I had to rub at my eyes A LOT but this at the very least didn't irritate my skin, but it also didn't get off all of my liner)
Garnier Micellar cleansing Water (It was a very cheap version of my Bobbi Brown remover. I didn't take off... Read more


Ooh, have never tried it but I am intrigued! Anyone know how this compares to the clio kill black brush eyeliner?


I knoooooow. I love Clio's Kill Black Brush Liner. I think the Cellnco is sharper and thinner, but as for longevity, I've heard it's pretty good, too. I'll have to try it and let you know.


Ooh, please do! :D


I have to say @sephiria, the Cellnco liner is pretty great! It lasts just as long as the Clio Kill Black Brush Liner and it goes on even better imo. It does crumble if you touch it after 8 hours, but that's after 8 hours!!! (The Kill Black smears if you touch it after 8 hours, but it doesn't crumble.) So I'd say it's a practically a dupe. (And it's cheaper.) Hope that helps!


Thanks heaps for the mini-review @annapark! Will definitely give it a try soon :)


No i never try it ? But i will^
