If you’ve been totally winging it, and your cat flicks leave little to be desired, this clever beauty tool could well become your eyeliner holy grail. The Quick Flick is a self-inked stamp which aims to help create flawless wings, with ease…
This isn’t the first time I’ve seen a product like this on the market, but unlike many other stamp-style eyeliners, The Quick Flick contains the ink within the pen, so there’s no mess or fuss having to dip the stamps – making it great for travel. You also get two dedicated pens, so each flick is totally tailored to both the right, and left eye shapes individually.
With three sizes to choose from; Petite 8mm, Modest 10mm, and Grand 12mm, it’s easy to select a size to suit your eye shape, or style. Of course, no messing about for me, I went straight for Grand! The pen sets cost $34.99 Australian Dollars, which is about £20, but savings can be made on doubling up, or opting for the whole range of sizes, if you wish. Shipping from Australia costs $5 AUD / £2.90 but it’s worth being aware that if you’re ordering from the UK, then customs and taxes may be charged upon receiving them.
I wasn’t too sure what to expect when they turned up, part of me thinking they may be too gimmicky to actually be functional. The two pens came packaged in a well presented, soft-touch box – with branding that reminded me of Too Faced, which gives a nice premium feel. The eyeliners are double-ended, so aswell as stamps, you also get a regular eyeliner, which though had a chunky tip was actually really easy to use and I had no problem carving out a precise shape.
My first try, and I was impressed – it was so easy to stamp on, and the ergonomic shape meant it was simple to line up, making sure both sides were even to each other. Once the stamp was in place, I used the other end to draw a line and match up to the flick. If you want to, it’s also possible to continue the flick into a longer, more tapered line if you prefer – making the stamp a brilliant template tool. If you really struggle with wings I would totally recommend trying The Quick Flick out!
