Etude House Cushion Lock ‘n Liner Review & Swatches
Etude House Cushion Lock ‘n Liner is a new cushion eyeliner that launched with the Etude House Lock n’ Summer Proof 10 Summer 2014 Collection. Etude House Cushion Lock ‘n Liner is a very INTERESTING product kids so you’re definitely going to want to read this review!
Etude House Cushion Lock ‘n Liner is available in five shade selections and will likely be a permanent part of the Etude House Collection well after Summer is over.
The idea of this eyeliner is incredibly innovative and quite unique! Etude House utilizes the cushion foundation we are currently see it and translates that packaging and idea to a liquid eyeliner!
Etude House markets Cushion Lock ‘n Liner as an extreme fix liner that won’t smudge or smear. This comes housed in a dual lid compact that’s a little bigger than a MAC eyeshadow. Flipping open the main lid will reveal another lid which keeps the liner fresh. It is indeed a cushion or a small sponge that you’ll find inside the compact. It has the texture of a sponge with a squishy feel. The sponge is saturated with liner and you can dip the small slanted eyeliner brush (the brush comes with it!) into the sponge and load up on color.
Unlike foundation and the new cushion blushes Etude House launched the sponge is VERY VERY DRY! I only purchased one shade so I’m unsure if this is a fluke or not but the sponge isn’t saturated with a ton of eyeliner and the promo images, which show a very intense, pigmented eyeliner look, are impossible to achieve. I pressed and I even scraped and as you can see on my arm I was BARELY able to draw a line on my arm using this. It’s not “wet” enough. I did show it on my eye because it actually creates this softer, smudge-y finish versus say actually creating an intense cat eye with it. So if your goal in your eye look life is to have a smudged up smoky effect you might love Etude House Cushion Lock ‘n Liner! But for those wanting an intensely lined eye, well, this isn’t going to do that!
Yeah, so, that kind of eyeliner look isn’t happening when using this product!
I really want to purchase another one and see if the formula is like this all around or if I just happened to get a fluke or perhaps the product dried out since it did ship from Korea to New York during a very hot, humid time. As of now I’m disappointed but I also don’t really mind the smoky, smudge-y look it create either so I guess it’s a hit or miss product. It did wear well on my drier eyes and didn’t flake or smear and removed easily at the end of an eight hour wear.
