THESE MAKEUP PENS FROM ARTIS RELY ON OPTICAL ILLUSION TO CREATE DRAMATIC LOOKS
There’s some science behind this release.
Upon initial glance, the four pens appear to be quite muted in color. However, each pen creates a subtle skin accent, and will appear quite pronounced when applied. Sold as a complete set for $50, the pens are intended to create four different individual effects: mattifying, gloss, glow, and contour. Each pen is labeled for its intended purpose.
Rounding out the set is a matte pen, which can be applied along the outside edge of your lips to keep color in place, and a shadow/contour pen, that can be applied under or above makeup. Add a small line of shadow under the cheekbone or along the nose for a shadowing effect, or combine it with your favorite eyeshadow to enhance the product's appearance.
As explained on its website, Artis specifically created the pens for an impactful and easy makeup routine. Noting a current climate where many are working from home and not putting on a full face of makeup, Artis noted that you can create a dramatic look without the use of color or glitter.
