Product Review: Cinema Secrets White Eyeliner Pencil

Hey, Guys! I've been under the blogging radar lately mainly because I was, actually, I still am, busy with other projects. But I also have so many pending product reviews to share with my curious cats. :D

So, If you happen to stumble upon my previous posts and have been with me eversince this blog was born, you'd understand that this year is all about my eyes and how I want to put more emphasis on them in regards to makeup.

Back then, I was afraid of using white eyeliners. I thought they were so obvious and totally senseless. But as I grew older and began working, I understood and realized the perks of having this in your makeup arsenal. Lining your lower lashlines with white eyeliner will give you an instant lift from the "I didn't get enough sleep" look and will instantly brighten your whole face. But finding the perfect white eyeliner is both a hit and a miss process. I normally read through other blogs first before going out and actually buying anything as this curious cat is also a thrifty cat. I'd rather try a product already with a great following rather than buy something I never heard of especially if it falls on the expensive side. You wouldn't want your hard earned money go down the drain would you? So, reading on, I heard such rave reviews about the MAC white kohl pencil. But when I went to the MAC counters to check it out, it's always sold out and it also doesn't come cheap. Then, I stumbled upon a blog review of the Cinema Secrets eyeliners. I actually have tried this brand before and they are known for theatre makeups. They sell very pigmented concealers and foundations but I was never aware that they also have eyeliners until I read about them. Given the track record for high pigmentation, I was curious to give this one a try. Considering also, that this is way cheaper than the MAC white kohl (but I'd definitely still would like to try it out in the future). So on one of my trips to the mall, I made a stop at the Cinema Secrets counter.

(it also comes in other colors.)
Price : P223.00 (approx. $5)
Place bought: Cinema Secrets counter at Landmark Makati

As you can see, the pencil itself is quite long ensuring you that it'll last you for quite a long time. As usual, here's a shot of my bare eyes for comparison:

Here's what it looks like when the white eyeliner is applied


  • Reasonably priced
  • Very pigmented. One swipe would give you the effect you want.
  • the formulation is not too creamy nor too hard which makes it glide easily on the waterline without hurting your eye.
  • color stays put for a good 3-4 hours depending on how frequent you tend to rub your eyes (a bad habit for some people. :D)
  • I couldn't complain much about this product considering its functionality and affordability. Just that I wish the staying power could be longer.
  • Tends to create product build up on your tear ducts at the end of the day.

So, if you're on a tight budget but are on the look out for a great white eyeliner I suggest you try this one out. I'd probably won't buy this anytime soon since this product is long enough to last me a long time and I still do have my eye on the MAC white kohl. :D
