I got this during K-marts BOGO 50% off Milani event. I have this in the cobalt blue and the dark brown. I have to say, the texture is quite thick and goopy. I'm not a novice when it comes to applying liquid eyeliner, but i had some difficulty (mainly with the brown). The brown one is sooo thick and goopy that it was damn near impossible to get a clean line. I will most likely toss it out. The cobalt blue however, wasn't quite as goopy and a bit thinner in consistency. I love how opaque and intense the color is. I am a big fan of Milani products. I would definitely get this again but only if it was on the BOGO 50% sale. I don't know if it was a bad batch for the brown, but I probably wouldn't be getting that color again. This stuff does stay on very well. ALL DAY. Even with my waterproof makeup remover... i needed to give it a good rub to get all of it off!
This stuff is like CEMENT.
I am not kidding.
I tightlined with the brown color. Took a hot shower.
Guess what? I got out. NO RACOON EYES. And there was still a line left on my tightline.
Tightline 24/7. YES please.
Is removable with lumene eye makeup remover. (dupe for lancome bifacil).
Did I mention it was $4?
I never liked liquid eyeliners because they'd always burn my eyes. Eye pencils have a habit of not lasting. After a recommendation, I decided to give milani a try. It is exactly like paint. It lasts a long time. I gave it a 4 because of the brush. It is hard to apply and if you mess up, its a B to get off. As far as the consistency being gooey or thick. Just run it under hot water for a bit. It should help. I have them in black, blue, bronze, and purple. So much fun to play around with and you never have to worry about it fading.
I have the black and it's my favourite eyeliner. Period. It's a really dark black and stays on forever. It doesn't melt/run off my oily eyelids. It doesn't flake off like some gel liners have on me. Like others have said it can be difficult to take off. Soap and water won't cut it. I use a cleansing oil to wash off. There are two downsides to this product though (which is why I can't give it 5 lippies). First is the applicator. It sucks. It's like a nail polish brush. Almost impossible to get a thin clean line. I would always get it on my eyelashes. I use a fine eyeliner brush to apply. It would be perfect if it had the same applicator as the L'Oreal lineur intense liquid eyeliner. Second, the formula gets really thick and goopy after 4-6 months that it gets hard to work with. Thankfully it's so inexpensive that repurchasing isn't an issue.
I have this in a few shades including the black and the purple. I think it has great staying power and it is totally waterproof, but it is such a pain to put on that I never use it! It has a thick formula that starts to dry immediately and gets all over my lashes and creates a big mess requiring lots of clean up. You can't wait to take it off your lashes either so you have to stop doing your eyeliner and do some cleanup a few times during the process of lining your eye, and it ends up taking a really long time.
I do not recommend.
Greatest eyeliner I've used! It works just like m.a.cs liquid eyeliner. It literally takes fooooooreeeever to come off! The price is great I love everything about it.
This liquid eyeliner has the best staying power that I have tried. It stays put that it's even hard to wipe it off with an eye makeup remover. As much as I like that it lasts the entire day, I find it hard to apply. The eyeliner is too creamy and thick. It's hard to draw a clean line on my eye because of the consistency.
This is the best liquid eyeliner I have used so far. The staying power is excellent! It even stays put on the tear lines. I never have to worry about this product running or flaking off. I can wear it with confidence in any weather conditions(humid summers to chilly winters). It even lasts though a night of dancing to techno music, doesn't budge.
I use the black shade of this product, it is very dark and ideal for a dramatic look. And you must have a skilled hand to apply this eyeliner effectively, it has a traditional, brush like tip. And a make-up remover or baby oil is best for removing this product, water alone or even soap and water will not work well.
I love this product and am so happy I discovered it. It is a wonderful product and a great value. I hope I will always be able to buy it!
Formula is easy to use
Product lasts a long time, even when goopy it's still workable
Perfect for upper lid
Difficult brush (I use a different eyeliner brush)
Tends to smear on my lower lash line
So dark! So waterproof! Actually it's hard to get off. Nonetheless, this is excellent for a very dramatic or vintage look. I'm only taking off a lippie because it's easy to make a mess with the way this product is packaged. To prevent getting too much product at once, you have to gently wipe the product on the edge of the bottle the way you would with nail polish, except it's so thick that it will stick to the top. Still, the actual product is wonderful, and so I will repurchase.
(It comes off very well with the Neutrogena oil-free eye makeup remover).
