Ardency Inn Punker: The World’s Baddest Eyeliner

Disclaimer: Press sample. See bottom.

Last May, at The Makeup Show New York City, I was introduced to a makeup line launching in fall 2013 called Ardency Inn.

Ardency Inn is a new cosmetics line that describes itself as “deeply rooted in the downtown New York music scene,” and for women on AND off the stage. The colorful cosmetics are designed to be quick and easy to use.

Ardency Inn is broken down into three collections – Punker, Modster and Americana. Today, I have an eyeliner to share from the Punker line – the “World’s Baddest Eyeliner,” a one-stroke liquid eyeliner in Deep Black.

James Vincent, celebrity makeup artist, was very passionate about the brand as he talked about about it in May. I have interviewed James a few times for my columns and blog posts, and I really trust his thoughts on trends, his advice on makeup, and therefore, his enthusiasm for Ardency Inn. I was excited to give it a shot, and I can’t believe it’s taken me THIS long to get my photos and review up!

This eyeliner is like a short, fatty marker. Check out the application tip:

For me, the short body and marker tip offer me control and an option for thin or thick lines of coverage. This is a very pigmented liquid liner, check it out:

In addition to being easy to use, this eyeliner has great staying power, lasting all day. I paired it here with an eye shadow palette from Kevyn Aucoin.

Punker retails for $19 at Sephora, where Ardency Inn is exclusively sold.

Have you tried anything from Ardency Inn? What do you think about this eyeliner? Is it something that you’re interested in? I’d love to hear your thoughts. I’m already sold!

  • GlitteryGlossy

    Reminds me of the fat Milani liner. Thanks for the review!

    • BeautyJudy

      Ah! Yes!!!

  • Betzy Carmona

    It looks nice for a black eyeliner

    • BeautyJudy

      It is 🙂

  • Harshleen

    That looks like a great black eyeliner! I need to try it out!

    • BeautyJudy

      It’s definitely well pigmented and easy to use!

  • MyNewestAddiction

    I would love to try this brand! Looks like good stuff!

    • BeautyJudy

      I used a recent Sephora gift card and nabbed myself some of the Lip Vinyls. Excited to explore more of the brand!

  • marciaf

    I got this in one of my subscription boxes and I was so excited about it. I like the eyeliner though it’s a little thicker than I prefer. It is a great black though.

    • BeautyJudy

      It is a fat tube! I need to rethink my subscription box strategy; I only do ipsy!

  • Farryn

    This looks like a great eyeliner!

    • BeautyJudy

      It was for me! 🙂

  • FabZilla_Kath

    Ardency Inn is on my next must-try list. This marker/eyeliner looks interesting. I have sensitive eyes so hopefully it’ll work just as good!xo

    • BeautyJudy

      Kath there are some amazing lip products in the line that you’re going to love!

  • Nidia Doherty

    I adore James Vincent, and his passion for this line inspires me to try some of it! That eye look is sex-AY on you, girl! You should punk out more often. It suits you.

    • BeautyJudy

      Lol thank you Nidia!! This eye palette is full of win.

    I love how TRULY black it is. I’ve been disappointed by many liquid eyeliners that are more of a gray tone. I want BLACK DRAMATIC LINER and this looks great!

    • Noelle

      I agree! I came to say the same thing. The pigmentation looks fantastic!

      • BeautyJudy

        It really is. I love it!

    • BeautyJudy

      Yes! I have uneven eyes, totally unsymmetrical face. But I feel like this liner would be amazing for winged liner and I have good luck flaring it just a little. It’s dramatic but just easy to maneuver too!

    Looks like a great liner!
    (and I did have a typo originally to “greta liner” haha dunno if she’d appreciate it or not)

    • BeautyJudy

      Lmao!!! You crack me up Destany xo

  • Amber

    I love the cut crease look on you Judy!

    • BeautyJudy

      Why thanks!!! I really loved this eye palette too!

    great liner!

    • BeautyJudy


  • myCosmeticBag

    I’m liking ardency inn more and more these days

    • BeautyJudy

      I can’t wait to try allllllll the lippies

  • Jessica InTruBeauty

    I’ve tried this before and thought it was okay. I’ve stuck with Lancome artliner which is the easiest liquid liner I’ve ever used.

    • BeautyJudy

      Everyone has their holy grail! I haven’t tried that Lancôme one yet – now I’m curious!

  • http://www.honeygirlsworld.com/ Honeygirlk

    that seems like a nice dark liner. I have not tried anything from this brand.

    • BeautyJudy

      I just learned a bunch about it – they have a lot of interesting products!

  • http://www.blushingnoir.com/ Brooke @ Blushing Noir

    Nice! I got this in one of the subbie boxes and I’m obsessed with it!

    • BeautyJudy

      This and the Jesse’s Girl liquid liner are my go-to’s now!! Love!!!

  • Anastasia

    It looks lovely on you! For some reason it didn’t work for me, because the color showed up dark gray instead of black on my skin tone.

    • BeautyJudy

      Oh noes! That stinks 🙁 I’m paler than … pale…LOL So maybe that’s why it worked so well LOL

      • Anastasia

        I’m actually really pale too, so it must be body chemistry 🙂
