This is my HG of eye pencils! I prefer dark brown eyeliner over black for a softer, everyday look. This blackberry color comes on dark brown with hints of plum - I love it! It lasts all day without smearing.
I'm on my second pencil right now.
When I first tried this pencil out, i was amazed. I was over at a friend's house, and had totally forgotten my makeup, so my friend lent me this eyeliner.
The color is a dark plummy brown with miniscule sparkles, which are not noticeable, but do make a slight difference. You may hate it, you may like it.
this is a dupe for Urban Decay's 24/7 pencil eyeliner in Rockstar. I do not own Rockstar, but I have tested it side by side with Revlon Blackberry. And I have to say, the colors are pretty much the same ^__^
Urban Decay's pencils are known for being suuuper buttery and creamy to the touch. Revlon Colorstay may not be as abnormally amazing, but its still creamy enough to not tug on your skin when you line your eyes.
I bought Revlon Colorstay for around $8. Urban Decay 24/7 retails for around $20, making Colorstay a HUGE bargin ^__^
What I like most about Revlon Colorstay eyeliner is that it is a retractable/self-sharpening eyeliner. I hate having to buy a seperate sharpener for my eyeliner pencils, and this saves a great amount of time.
There's a little sharpener at the end tip of the packaging. If your product becomes a bit blunt, pop out the sharpener, twist the product in gently a couple of times, and BAM! Fresh, precise eyeliner, ready to use.
Would I buy this again? Heck yeah. Eyeliner is a staple.
This is a very nice drugstore eyeliner. It definitely has long staying power, and that's saying a lot because I really have oily lids and most eyeliners smudge in a few hours on me. This one doesn't, so I don't end up with racoon eyes. The color blackberry is also very pretty, it compliments my dark brown eyes well. Would definitely repurchase.
I love eyeliners where you don't have to sharpen! This is a gorgeous dark plummy/brown color that makes my brown eyes pop! Doesn't stay well on waterline. I love using this to outline and wing my upper lash line. Def lasts for a really long time when I apply it that way. This color is a good alternative for the regular brown liner. Def would repurchase!
I'm not so enthusiastic about this purple. Most purple liners/shadows make my hazel eyes look more green, but not this one :( The navy color actually does a better job for hazel/green eyes IMO. Revlon colorstay liners also have a tendency to irritate my eyes if I use it on the inner rims, so be cautious! I gave it 2 lippies because this liner is true to its "colorstay" label, it really does last all day with no touch ups required.
This was an emergency purchase... one day, I had a horrible morning and cried all my eye makeup off, but had to leave directly from work to go to an art show and I only had mascara with me. I asked my husband to pick up eyeliner for me at Target so I could apply it when he met me at the show. I specifically told him Revlon Colorstay in black, although I have never tried this eyeliner, because it was the first thing that came to mind and I didn't want him wasting time weighing the merits of different types. They were out of black so he settled for Blackberry. This is just an okay eyeliner. It goes on smoothly and wears well but I'm not amazed by it. The color on my eye is a slightly purpled charcoal color, rather than the blackened plum of the cap. I don't notice any shimmer, which is fine because I don't like shimmer liners. I wear this when I want a softer than black look. I may or may not purchase again, because it's not a staple but it's not terrible either.
This color was a bit of a disappointment. I wanted it to be more plum, but it looks more grey-black on my eyes. It is a soft color though so it isn't as harsh as the black, and so gives a more natural (but still quite dramatic) look. I would buy this again.
doesn't look as much plum on me as a dark brown, but i still like it. the shimmers are really negligible, which i am ok with. i gave it 4 stars though and not 5 because i think it doesn't last as long as the black one. But I have been repurchasing for years now and will keep doing so in the future..
This is the longest lasting eyeliner I own, and the color is a dead-on dupe for Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Rockstar. This one is not as creamy as the Urban Decay, but it is not dry by any means. I like it because it is not as harsh as black but is still dark enough to define eyes. It has a VERY slight shimmer but no glitter, which I like for a more refined day look. And the price is right! This is a definite repurchase for me.
I prefer Revlon's Colorstay eyeliners, particularly Blackberry, to more expensive, department store eyeliners. Blackberry is a sophisticated deep purple that pairs well with any pink, purple, or nude/brown eyeshadow. It stays on longer than other eyeliners that I have tried and yet is not difficult to remove with Purpose or Neutrogena facewash. My only complaint is that mine has started to retract into the tube during application. However, this problem is solved by simply turning the eyeliner to expose more product.
