Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner (Deep Black) Review

Some of you may be familiar with how this eyeliner performs from my Kose Deep Cleansing Oil review, where it was basically impossible to remove! It's a great eyeliner that has a lot things going for it, read more after the jump! (:

Where to buy it: - $17.30 - $17.99 - $17.99 (scroll down) - $19.01 - $20
Ebay for about $15-17

Description: Koji Dolly Wink Liquid eyeliner is a deep, dense black eyeliner with an ultra fine tip for a precise application. Koji Dolly Wink Eyeliner is Waterproof and sweat proof, the liquid eyeliner comes with a quick dry formula to prevent smudges and smears. Long wearing and with an intense shade, eyes are enhanced and defined for hours on end, without need of touch-ups. (from

~ Ultra fine brush for precise application
~ Deep black color
~ Waterproof
~ Sweat Proof
~ Smudge-Free
~ Smear-Free
~ Long lasting formula

Scent: No scent at all! C:

Close up of the pattern.

Packaging: Very girly! I thought the old packaging was a lot cuter, as I'm not really a fan of the shade of pink combined with a light purple, but whatever. Still pretty cute. I like how thin the pen is, though some might find it a bit too delicate. The tip allows for a lot of variety in how thick the line is, which is really nice! I find it a bit easier to draw precise lines with this versus my former eyeliner (Kat Von D tattoo liner). I think the tip is one of the things that makes this eyeliner great.

Swatch/Results: I'm a big fan of this eyeliner. As stated above, it allows me to have a lot of control over how thick/thin the line is. The tip is flexible and the eyeliner is dark. The eyeliner dries super quickly as well, which is great for avoiding smudges (sneezing when doing eye-makeup, the stuff of nightmares)! It lasts all day without flaking or getting smudge-y, but comes off fairly easily with some good eye makeup remover. I would say that the formula is water proof as well, as you can see in the picture below~ Over all it's just a fantastic eyeliner, I have absolutely no complaints... besides the price. It is definitely a bit on the pricier side of liquid eyeliners, but I think that the quality makes up for the price.

A variety of stroke widths!

This was after splashing some water on my hand and rubbing for about 10 seconds. Prreeettyy impressive in my opinion.

Conclusion: Final Score 5/5


  • long lasting
  • dries super quickly, so no risk of smudging
  • dark black!
  • tip allows for precise application
  • waterproof
  • cute packaging~

  • expensive
  • can be hard to find


  1. I had one of these before, but still with the old packaging. I guess they improved on the formula because my old one wasn't even very sweat or oil-proof for me. By the end of the day, it was slightly faded too, especially where I do my wing.

    1. I see, it sounds like they changed the formula then, yes. Cause in my Kose oil review it was literally impossible to remove haha. How long ago did you buy it?

  2. A bit more than I'd pay for it, probably. But I wonder how long it'll be before it'll try out? I have two eyeliners like that and they both dried out so fast. T_T Maybe it's because they were half the price. Lol. I'd just be interested in its life span. It does look good.

    1. I'll update this post when it dries out, so readers can have a better idea of how long it lasts. :D

  3. The new formula seems pretty promising! o: I'm almost out of my current Dolly Wink liner (old packaging + formula) and K-Palette liner, so I might buy this again. c:

  4. I do think I've found the next eyeliner I'm going to try. I've resisted Dolly Wink's cute packaging for much too long. Thanks for the review!

  5. I have oily eyelids and I used the ones from their old package and it would fade in the middle of the day!

    1. Oh no! I don't have oily eyelids, but I haven't experienced that at all. Hopefully this new formula would work better?

  6. I've always told myself to try the Dolly Wink Liner but never picked one up! It's definitely my mission this summer haha

    I've also nominated you for the Liebster Award!

    Check it out here:

  7. I want to have it...unfortunately it's so expansive. ..:((

    1. Yea :c that's probably the worst thing about it

  8. Thank you for the review! Would like to see it on you though ^^

    1. haha i was too lazyyyy, but i'll put a pic up on tuesday!

  9. I'm glad you compared it with kat von d, I was thinking of picking that one up and now I'm more certain that I need the dolly wink liner ^_^

    Currently I'm using the k-palette 24/7 tattoo and I like the pen a lot, but I want something BLACKER than black, lol. The dolly wink swatches look more opaque and black than my k-palette liner!
