Consider Tom Ford’s Eye Defining Pen in Deeper if…
- You regularly hang out with Jay-Z, Bey and their entourage and frequently say things like, “This round of Cristal is on me, guys!”
- You have yet to find your end-all, be-all perfect liquid liner, and money is no object in your ongoing quest.
At $55, this bad boy requires serious beauty budget wiggle room.
Yep, you read that right — $55 for a black liquid liner.
Deep breaths. I know, it’s effing outrageous, but it’s typical of Tom “Too Expensive” Ford.
For that many tacos, it better perform.
So does it? Will it blow your highlighted ombre hair back?
Let me put it this way: I really, really didn’t want to like this liner because, seriously, who needs a $55 black liquid liner anyway?
Fortune 500 tech moguls, Grammy Award-winning pop stars and members of Da Make It Rain Club might not flinch at a price like that, but other people will, especially when there are so many great drugstore and department store liners available.
But holy rollers, babe, Deeper does werk!
A dual-tipped pen with a long flexible nib on one end and a shorter precision tip on the other, it downright delivers. Both tips draw preternaturally smooth, jet-black lines in a single pass, probably even better than LORAC’s Front of the Line Pro, my go-to liquid liner of many years.
Longer than most liquid liner pens and slightly heavier, too, it’s perfectly balanced like a samurai’s sword. At first I thought the heft would be a problem, but somehow the dimensions just work, at least for me, making the pen easier to hold and control.
Plus, the formula lasts all day long and still washes off easily.
Tom Ford obviously doesn’t give a darn about breaking budgets, and Deeper is far from cost-effective, but at least it delivers top-notch results. If you crave high-end makeup and value long-wearing, black-as-night liners that also look phenomenal, Deeper is as delicious as a good pecan pie.
