Simple Kind To Eyes Eye Make-up Corrector Pen Review

Simple Kind To Eyes Eye Make-up Corrector Pen Review

In my recent affordable skincare haul, I featured the Simple Kind To Eyes Eye Make-up Corrector Pen and said that I wouldn’t be using it until I had a new mascara to get to grips with.  Well, refraining from its use literally lasted a matter of days as I was doing my makeup for an event using a particularly liquidy mascara and as I was applying it, I sneezed, shut my eyes hard and ended up with mascara on my lovely eye make up and all below my lower lash line.

What a nightmare!

I’m pleased to say though that the Simple Eye Make-up Corrector Pen came to my rescue.

This is essentially a felt tip pen with a non greasy makeup remover inside that removes makeupwhen it comes into contact with the skin, including stubborn waterproof makeup which is surprising as the formula is free from oil.  This makes it the perfect product for cleaning up make up mistakes such as mascara smudges, eyeshadow fall out and even lipstick smudges.

Sometimes I make a mistake when applying my lipliner or darker lipstick and touching up with concealer or foundation just doesn’t always look right and sometimes darker lip products bleed on my lips which just looks unsightly.  One day, I was testing out a new lip product and just thought I’ll take this pen with me just incase and low and behold, it bled and I used the pen to clean it up, leaving my makeup looking flawless once again.  Although it does say that it is for eyes, there’s no reason why it cannot be used anywhere else on the face and I have found it to be ideal for cleaning up around the lips when wearing darker lippies and to make my lips look an even shape when lining them.

Since this is a Simple product, I knew that it was going to be super gentle and I didn’t have any worries at all with using it around my sensitive eye area.  This pen contains Pro-Vitamin B5 which helps to actively restore, soften and smooth the skin.  The formula is free from perfume, colours, harsh chemicals, unnecessary ingredients and alcohol, so it isn’t going to dry your skin out or irritate it.

It is very easy to use, simply pop off the lid, hold the pen point side down for about 10 seconds to enable the felt tip pen to become wet with the solution and then use it directly on the makeup mistake to make it disappear.  I find it particularly useful for mascara that has gone onto my skin on my lower lash line and on my eye lids.  What I like the most about this pen is that it doesn’t mess up the rest of my makeup the way that cleaning up mistakes with a cue tip sometimes can.  It is very light in its use and extremely precise so it just takes off the makeup that you want it to and then I usually just go back in with my blending brush to make sure my eye make up looks seamless.  I don’t have to apply extra eye makeup, I just blend it a little so that the same finish is visible on the lid (shimmery, matte etc).

It is perfect for smudges, streaks and panda eyes whether that’s while you’re applying your make up or throughout the day.  Do you smudge mascara onto your eyelids when applying it? Do you cry at the cinema? Do your eyes water in the wind?  Do you rub your eyes forgetting you have makeup on them?  If the answer to any of those questions is yes, then this product has got your back!

The Simple Eye Make-up Corrector Pen has been around for a while and I can’t believe it has only just come onto my radar thanks to shopping on Chemist Direct.  Sometimes I find that it is difficult to just browse for beauty and skincare products online on websites like Boots and Superdrug because there’s just far too much choice that everything gets a bit watered down whereas selects Chemist Direct some of the best products out there and it is really easy to navigate through everything on their site.

Simple Kind To Eyes Eye Make-up Corrector Pen Review

So many of my friends have asked me how to avoid smudging mascara when applying it and there are a few tips that I can give them, such as tipping your chin downwards when applying mascara onto your bottom lashes and backwards when applying it to your top lashes but sometimes this isn’t enough and mistakes do happen… and sneezes, as was the case with me!  For those occurrences, this make-up corrector pen is an absolute godsend.  I can also see it being particularly useful for those who don’t have particularly good eyesight because sometimes people find it difficult to see clearly up close or far away depending on how they do their make up and if they smudge their mascara they can just clean it up with this pen.

Another problem that some of my friends have is with their mascara flaking or their eyeliner transferring from their waterline throughout the day and again, this product is perfect for touching up those annoying makeup fall outs on the go without disrupting the rest of your makeup because it is so precise.

The only downside that I can see to the Simple Kind To Eyes Eye Make-up Corrector Pen is that when you’ve used it to clean up dark makeup like black mascara, the tip does tend to get quite dirty so I’m not sure how long it is going to last for even though there’s lots of product in the pen itself.  However while putting together this review, I’ve actually discovered that Simple recommend cleaning the tip of the pen on a makeup wipe after each use so I’m going to try that and I’ll let you know how I get on (probably in an empties post when it has come to the end of its use!).

Personally, I’d recommend buying this from Chemist Direct because it is the cheapest price and I don’t see the point in spending more money for the same product.  However you can also purchase it from Boots.

    What a great idea! I'm not really a Simple fan, but I can see who useful this would be.

    Fabulous review Laura! This sounds like such a nifty little product. I have seen this around on many occasion but I have never picked it up and given it a try myself (even though I love Simple products). I used to think it was used purely to help remove stubborn makeup (panda eyes), however, I feel this would be a great product to crisp up eyeliner and a bold lip!

      Aw no! I wonder if its a specific ingredient that you're allergic to, in which case you could see if this product has it or not xxx

    Just read this, as I got the corrector this morning, in Boots as they were selling them off! £1 for it, and now I read this I am glad I snapped one up! Had a bit of a disaster on my liner this morning, but so glad I have this now :)
