Estee Lauder Pure Color Quick-Thick EyeLiner Punker Black should be made permanent!

I’m a little late. This Quick-Thick Eyeliner is released together with the Violet Underground palette, part of the Fall 2012 collection. This is liquid eyeliner in pen form. It’s a pen liner! I’ve run out of black liquid liner, so I’ve been using this a lot – the only one in my stash. It’s becoming one of my favourites, and I’m sad that I won’t be able to repurchase.


This pen liner is thick and stubby, just like a white board marker. Well, not as fat as a marker, but just enough for a comfortable hold. The pen does look like a Sharpie, it is stiff and effortless to control. It is shorter than your usual eye liner, and just an inch extra would add more comfort to hold. Only if the cap could add some length… Below are 2 photos to show you what the pen looks like. I compared it to Revlon and Urban Decay pencil eyeliners so you can have some perspective of the thickness and the length.




Punker Black is very pigmented, and I have no problem drawing a very fine line with it. I just have to use less pressure when drawing on my eyes. I find that when I draw a thicker line, the ink takes a little longer to dry, but I didn’t experience any transfers or smudging. During the testing phase, I’ve worn it on its own without eyeshadow or mascara, to see if there are any smudging on my eyes. I’m glad to report that there is none. If I were to improve on the formula, I would probably want it to be waterproof. Don’t wanna cry black tears, ladies!



In the picture above, I used Punker Black without mascara to let you see how close I could get to my lash line. I could also draw a pretty pointed wing with it, so great news there! I got this for RM80 about a little more than a month ago and the pen is still going strong. I don’t know how long this will last, and I would be ecstatic if a waterproof version of this is made permanent.

Did you manage to give this a try? I wonder if it’s still available….

    this liner looks like the chubby stick! i have not used liquid liner for a while…recently i kept poking my eye with it ><

    • Lily

      Oh dear, eye poking is not good. This one draws very easily though.

  • I LOVE eyeliners in sharpie form, lol! They are so easy to use! I think it’s still available here. So happy to hear that this works yet so sad it’s not permanent.

    • Lily

      Me too! So easy to use, and this one does not have a flimsy tip. It is sad that LE products work well, but knowing the industry, there will always be better ones in the near future 🙂

  • Aw it looks like a little mascara but its really a chubby little pen eyeliner–cute! 😛 It’s really pigmented too–looks nice!

    • Lily

      It does look like a mascara doesn’t it? If you have the opportunity, you should give this a try.

  • I love eyeliners like these, to the point that I never use any other type to line my upper lids. The black seems super intense and pigmented; they really should consider putting this on the permanent line. 😀

    • Lily

      Yup, you said it! I’ve been using this very regularly. It might run out sooner than I expect. Who knew I’d be using this every day? LOL!

  • This reminds me of a similar liquid eyeliner by MAC 🙂

    Not waterproof? Awww. I have tears problem so this probably won’t suits me. Wouldn’t want the “wing” part to be washed off lololol

      Hey Fiona. I think you’re referring to MAC’s Penultimate liner. That one is much smaller, even the tip is finer. This one is easier to use and more pigmented though. Yeah, the non-waterproof part is a bit of a dud 🙂
