Some people can easily apply eyeliner. Although, others haven’t quite mastered the art of drawing on eyeliner. Also, today there are so many eyeliner trends that are trending now. For example, trends range from tightlining, to creating a cat eye. Then, there is a thick eyeliner line with a curve, or a straight thin line. Now, Nudestix came out with a new Nudestix Rock’n Roller Easy Eyeliner Ink. For one thing, the Rock’n Roller is supposed to make it a cinch to eyeline your eyes. All you need to do is Rock (shake the ink) and Roll(draw your desired line). Another good point is the Rock’n Roller is touted as being a quick way to line your eyes. Let’s find out if the Rock’n Roller is the answer to drawing the perfect graphic, straight, and curved lines.
You can find the Nudestix Rock’n Roller Easy Eyeliner Ink on Beautylish, Sephora, Selfridges, Nordstroms, and on the Nudestix Website. Also, the Rock’n Roller Easy Eyeliner Ink (0.034 oz. / 1mL) costs $26.
The Packaging For The Nudestix Rock’n Roller Easy Eyeliner
To begin with,the outer packaging for the Nudestix Rock’n Roller is the signature Nudestix black, tin, lidded box. First,I know you will use this box. One, it is great for travel. Two, it has a mirror under the removable lid. And three, the box is big enough to carry a few products.
Next, the eyeliner ink comes in a black inkwell, with a tall, pointed lid. In fact, it looks like you purchased a traditional bottle of black ink, with a brush applicator.
However, the applicator for the Rock’n Roller is what makes this eyeliner so easy to apply. One, the applicator, sans brush, has what looks like a pizza cutter. It is a flat, circular wheel that moves like a pizza cutter. Therefore, to apply the ink, you roll the ultra-fine roller across your lash line. Indeed, it’s different! Once you get through your learning curve, you may be able to draw a precise line.
The Formula For The Rock’n Roller Easy Eyeliner Ink
First, the formula is a high pigment liquid ink. Even more,the formula is sweat proof, smudge proof, and waterproof. Also, the ink dries down to a matte finish. Once the formula sets, the ink becomes long-lasting. According to Nudestix, the ink is supposed to last for 24 hours.
Finally, the formula is vegan and cruelty free. And, the formula has no preservatives, fragrance, and no gluten.
The Nudestix Rock’n Roller Easy Eyeliner Ink Shades
Next, the Rock’n Roller comes in three shades. I purchased Black Moon. The other shades are Bronze Patina, and Rose Gold.
First, Bronze Patina, a warm brown shade, has a metallic finish.
Next, Rose Gold, a rose gold shade, has a metallic finish.
Finally, Black Moon, a deep black shade, has a satin-matte finish.
Rock’n Roller Easy Eyeliner Ink Application
To apply, dip the roller ball into the inkwell. Then, rock the inkwell to shake the paint pigments. If you are drawing a fine line, roll the roller ball along the lash line. As a result, you are supposed to be able to tightline.
Next, to create a cat eye, first draw the flick. Therefore, you start at the outer corners of your eyes.
The angle of the flick was supposed to determine the look!
Also, you need the ink set to dry.
My Final Thoughts On Rock’n Roller Easy Eyeliner Ink…..
In a way, you could consider this applicator a gimmick. Although, I think the applicator would work better if the formula was thicker, with more pigments. Instead, the formula is too watery. So, the black line has skips in it. Plus,it isn’t the black you would want, to create a deep, dark line. Also, I watched the video with one of the brand founders, who demonstrated the eyeliner. Unfortunately, her results didn’t look like mine. Mine looked like a kindergartener drew a terrible line. So, I think this ended up being a waste of money.
Cute idea, if it had worked. But, it didn’t work, and I’m not going to use it. It is easier to take a felt liner, and run a line across your eyes. Or, use Marc Jacobs thick Highliner,or thin fineliner, if you want an amazing black line. Now, these gel liners are easy to use!
