I wanted to share a very brief review about the Tom Ford Eye Defining Pen but I didn’t want to do it without talking about the By Terry eyeliner at the same time… these are both the holy grail eyeliners of my life :
The Tom Ford in Deeper and the By Terry in So Black. The TF costs 55 usd, it’s very expensive but even at this price it’s still worth it. You don’t even imagine how much precious time this thing has saved me in the mornings. The By Terry costs 43 usd in Barneys but for some weird reason, for once in our life, By Terry products are cheaper in Switzerland than the rest of the world (but I won’t shout because they may hear me and increase the prices…).
The TF has two ends, a shorter and a longer one but I just use the longer one so I cannot really take profit of ”a dual eyeliner”. I think that the product inside is delivered for both ends without a separator within the middle of the pen, I feel like a sort of ball moves around when you shake it so in my opinion using one or the two ends of the pen is the same result for the customer… (to be verified). The shorter end is too difficult to control for me anyway, it’s not flexible and the only way I can make it work is if I do very Lady Gaga looks, this kind of look for example will be completed with the shorter end, but that is not what I am looking for on a daily basis… I want something like that and that is achieved perfectly in lighting speed on a daily basis with the longer calligraphic end of the TF.
