I have always wanted to learn how to do winged eyes but with my level of makeup skill (and blindness without my glasses) that this wasn’t going to happen. When you watch the tutorials on youtube using the traditional method you have to close your eye .. but have it open and then draw a straight line. This to me just was never going to happen. Well that is what I thought. So after seeing the ad on Facebook and checking it out on the Shark Tank, I thought it was worth a try.
What is the Quick Flick?
It’s a double-ended eyeliner that comes with a cat flick stamp on one end (loaded with ink) and a fine liner on the other. It basically makes achieving the perfect cat-eye easy for anyone. When you open the box you will see that you get 2 stamps. And before you think .. yeah I have extras. No you have one for each eye (and they are needed).
Creating the winged-eye look with Quick Flick
Picking up the pen it is large and sits comfortably in your hand. And after watching the tutorial (below) and reading the directions “simply stamp where desired and use the eyeliner pen to fill in the shape”. I just dived in and gave it a go. Thankfully using the stamp was incredibly easy. And while I am sure that I will get better with more practice I was happy with my first attempt. Working the rest of the eye-liner (with a little someone helping them … he was sure that I should have my glasses on to do this) was a little more challenging but organising some alone time to do this might be the best idea.
The price $34.99 is higher compared to eye-liner brand alternatives you might find in your chemist. BUT what you’re paying for is a premium Australian designed product that’s cruelty free and vegan. Plus you get 2 pens per box so it works out to about $17 per pen which is then comparatively very reasonable … And on top of that it works and for me the others just wouldn’t
I am a convert. I am still going to work on getting the best placement on the stamp but I would not have got even close to doing it this well with the traditional approach. For now I going to practice more with the Petite and will work my way up to the Modest.
Not convinced … here is another review
