I adore this eyeliner. I have never had anything glide so smoothly without tugging on my eyelid. However, since this pencil is too soft, it tends to get blunt easily, so I have to sharpen more often as compared to other liners, but I don't mind.
Living in a tropical country, liners tend to smudge, especially on my asian eyes. This is one of the very rare liners that stay put the whole day. This is the main reason why I find it amazing and has become my go to eyeliner.
Caveat: make sure not to overdo it, as a thick layer of eyeliner tends to cake and crack eventually.
this is basically a gel liner in pencil form i love it. It goes on so easily. I like how you can sharpen it and since it's plastic you wont have splinters on the pencil. The price is a little much but it's worth it. It doesn't stay on the water/tight line but it stays on the lid.
I was really disappointed given the other reviews on this product. I don't mind the soft tip, it was easy to apply but definitely more towards a gel then a pencil - my issue is that after about 4 hours, the eyeliner was flaking off. I also have that flaking problem with the milani eye tech extreme so maybe it's just how milani reacts to my skin, but this is a disappointment for me. Going back to stila's liquid pen again.
This shade is a flat/matte (not at all metallic in my opinion) brown-black once applied. It's the perfect everyday/basic liner for me with impressive staying-power.
Another plus is that the lead is hard enough that I can get a sharp point with a manual sharpener yet soft enough to apply the liner without skipping/dragging. continued >>
I picked this up by accident, and couldn't be happier with it!
First of all, I don't know why they call this a metallic eyeliner; it really looks just like a plain brown. It goes on thick and rich, and you have a few seconds to smudge if you need to. I put this on at 8 am, and it's still there when I wash my face at midnight!! It has very little migration. I like this cheap pencil better than ANY of my MAC eyeliners, pencil or gel. I like it even better than the Bobbi Brown pencils that run under my eyes and cost many times what this one does.
I'll buy this over and over!
I bought this in hopes that it would be a cheaper alternative to MAC/Urban Decay. Needless to say this eyeliner is a complete and total failure.
-it has the look and appeal of a quality eye liner
-the creamy, smooth application of the liner is deceptively similar to Urban Decay- however unlike UD, if you give the pencil a little too much pressure, it will smoosh. You're basically forced to use the liner with a very light hand otherwise I'm sure, you'd be done with the pencil in a week with its' frustrating tendency to smash, smudge, and blur your eyesight (which it definitely does).
-it doesn't have much lasting power on the actual lids
Best eyeliner out there! This eyeliner is soooo good! It's smudge proof, and is such a good price! I'm so impressed that it's also paraben free. It was a bit hard to find for me (they were all sold out at all the drugstores I visited) but I'm so glad I bought it and will be definately repurchasinG!
One of the best brown pencil liners I've ever tried! It's SO creamy and very easy to put on. But, the fact that I'm a tad bit clumsy, I tend to mess up a lot and when I mess up, I immediately try to use my finger and get it off. The liner then smudges a bit and ruins everything lol but, that's ok! Nothing a little remover and touch ups can't fix!
-Price;; Ok. I don't really remember how much it was lol. But, I remember my pocket burning a little bit that day so...I'm guessing it was a tad bit much BUT it's still a really good liner non the less soo, my pockets need to man up and get a band aid!
-Packaging;; Normally, packaging on a pencil liner isnt that special but, hey, whatever. It looks nice and sleek soo. Why not! I took one lip thing off though because every time I put the pencil back into it's cap I always manage to put some of the liner on the clear cap and I'm a tad bit OCD so, a little smudge looks like a big brown mess. (does that remind you of something gross perhaps?)
-Overall;; Definite 5!
Would I buy this again you ask? Heck yeah! ...once the prices go down a bit...(:
This is my go to eyeliner for everyday wear. It is super smooth, creamy, pigmented and long wearing 12+ hours without smudging. I find it "easier" to use an eyeliner brush with this product for more fine point precision. Great product at a DS price. :))
It's not actually metallic, which is great. I love this eyeliner. It doesn't budge or smudge all day. I can't rave enough about how long lasting this eyeliner is.
The only problem is that it's sooo soft. I've broken the tip one time when I took off the cap. It also breaks in the pencil sharpener. I'm almost halfway through the pencil and I've only used it around 10 times! I really love this pencil, but I wish it was a little firmer. I keep having to sharpen it to keep a sharp tip. Otherwise, it's too fat to draw a thin line in the inner corners of your eyes.
Most of the time, eyeliners last almost half a year for me. I'm really surprised by how much of this product I've already used and I've only had it for a little over a month!
