Review: Simple's 'Kind to Eyes' Eye Make-Up Corrector Pen

I can't think of anything more irritating than having done your makeup perfectly and then finding you've smudged your eyeliner and/or mascara at the last minute. We've all tried licking our finger and simply rubbing it away, but it tends to leave a dark shadow that closely resembles the eye bags we try so desperately to cover up!

I've always been a fan of Simple. They just prove that you don't have to add harsh chemicals and perfumes to be able to achieve the same results. For those of you who don't know, Simple are a skincare company that specialise in only using the finest and gentlest ingredients in their products in order to achieve flawless looking skin without the nasty additives. Named the UK's No.1 Facial Skincare brand, it's safe to say that Simple produce quality products that are not only good for your skin, but don't break the bank either.

Sorry for the bad quality picture, it didn't look so blurry when I looked back on it on my camera!

The corrector pen has the same features of all the other Simple products: No oil, alcohol, perfume, colour and packed with Pro-vitamin B5 to retain smooth skin. The pen also has a precision tip to be able to correct the smallest of mistakes in the most awkward places. However, what I don't really like is how it says that the pen must be cleaned with a cleansing wipe after each use. Obviously it keeps the tip clean and stops it from drying out, but it just seems a bit of a waste to clean something with a cleansing wipe that can be quite costly if you use the corrector pen on a daily basis.

In order to test the pen, I had to be sure to make 'mistakes' that were visible on camera, however I did also use the precision tip for smaller corrections that aren't so visible.



Tada! All the little mascara marks were gone in a matter of seconds, which is suprising seeing as I used my They're Real! mascara from Benefit, which is quite tough to get off seeing as its smudge-proof. It also did remove any of the concealer or eyeshadow I had on either, which is an added bonus as there was no need to reapply again. As the pen isn't greasy and is entirely oil-free it's great for anyone that's prone to watering eyes, like me.

The corrector pen costs just £4.99 and will now be a permanent fixture in my make-up bag. This is definitely a must-have item; an essential to ensure that you achieve flawless eyes every time. You can purchase Simple's 'Kind To Eyes' Eye Make-Up Corrector Pen from your nearest chemist, Boots, Superdrug or on the Simple website.
