Even with years of experience in beauty editorial, I still get bad eyeliner days. My eyeliner application isn’t always on-fleek, especially when I’m going for a winged tip, better known as the cat eye.
A few weeks ago, I spotted a viral video of Vamp Stamp’s Wing Stamp, which helps you apply winged eyeliner simply by stamping it. The eyeliner is $25 each (around ₱1,200), but it’s available only in the US and Puerto Rico. I also found other options, such as the San Filippo Wing It (from Italy) and Winged Stamps (from Texas, USA).
Surely, there must be an Asian version we can easily purchase, right? After working on my recent listicle, “35 Filipino Beauty Brands to Love,” I came across Skin Potions, a Korean-Filipino brand that sells quirky skincare and makeup products.
Lo and behold, one of their bestsellers—the Meowliner!
It’s a dual-ended eyeliner. There’s a stamp to help you apply the wing or cat eye, and a liquid pen eyeliner to help you line and fill up the gaps.
How To Use:
1. Start by using the stamp to apply the wing on the outer corner of both eyes. Lightly tug your lids for a precise application.
2. Use the felt-tip pen to line from the inner to outer corner of your lashline (or outer to inner, whichever you prefer), and to fill in the gaps of the stamp.
3. Go as thin or thick as you please.
Check out my quickie video for a better look:
1. Once you get the hang of applying the stamp evenly on both eyelids (practice makes perfect!), it cuts down your cat eye application time in half.
2. The felt-tip pen may be used to apply either a thick or thin line.
3. Affordable at ₱350 each.
1. I noticed that the stamp part tends to dry up, so I need to give it a major shake every now and then (similar to what we do in school when our pen is running out of ink).
2. Not waterproof. When it’s hot and humid, the ink smudges.
This makeup tool is best for cat eye beginners, or if you’re always on the go and have only a few minutes to apply makeup.
