SURRATT Beauty Auto-Graphique Eyeliner in Chat Noir | Review and Swatches

Purchased (Affiliate Links)

SURRATT Auto-Graphique Eyeliner in Chat Noir is a refillable liquid eyeliner with a wonderfully effective bush tip that was inspired by Japanese calligraphy brushes. The fine tip facilitates precise application ranging from the finest line to the thickest cat eye. The application is very smooth, with no skipping, and it offers buildable coverage without every flaking or pilling. Once the liner sets, it is budge-proof and lasts on me all day. I don't need to use a primer for all-day wear, but I do not have oily eyelids, therefore your wear-time may vary. I have plenty of liquid liners, but this is definitely my favorite, and while I don't wear a liquid liner every single day, this is the one that I reach for when I do. It is very user-friendly, and there is no steep learning curve to get the perfect cat-eye (whether subtle or extreme).
According to Surratt Beauty,

A refillable liquid eyeliner with a Japanese calligraphy-inspired brush tip for drawing precise, long-lasting cat eyes.

The calligraphy-style brush precisely lines your eyes. The smooth, sumi ink-inspired formula is buildable and non-pilling, for artful lines with an enduring finish. Like a calligraphy pen, this well-constructed brush is designed to outlast the ink cartridge inside. This liquid liner performs best when layered over eyeshadow. 

If the brush tip becomes soiled with shadow, gently wipe clean with a lint-free tissue; if hairs become unaligned, form them back into a point by stroking them against the tissue. Replenish with Surratt Beauty Autographique Eyeliner Refill (sold separately). Surratt Beauty is dedicated to the Japanese tradition of minimal elegance; the space-saving packaging is designed to be lightweight and secure, and it is recyclable.
Directions: Unswivel the rear barrel from the body of the pen. With the silver ball facing the opening, insert the post into cartridge, piercing it. Hold the pen vertically, brush side down, until the ink saturates the bristles. In the future, roll the pen gently between your palms use to infuse the brush with ink.

"For a wider line, run the brush tip through your fingers to flatten the hairs."—Troy Surratt, Celebrity Makeup Artist and Founder of Surratt Beauty

Overall Assessment: This is definitely my favorite liquid eyeliner, and it was a worthwhile purchase for me. I am also very happy that it is refillable so that I can just buy the refill cartridges in the future. If you are seeking a new liquid eyeliner, then I definitely recommend trying this one. If you have a drawer filled with liquid eyeliners, then save your money and make a mental note to try this one next time you are thinking about buying a replacement.

    1. Me too, it makes it much more economical and sustainable.

  3. I haven't used liquid liner in a year or two. Not sure why. This looks like worth giving a try with the way the tip is.

    1. If you are in the market for a liquid liner, this is definitely worth trying!

  4. The tip is so sharp! I love it! I bet the precision and control is amazing!

    1. It is, and for real precision and control this is as perfect as it gets!
