Not too long ago, a friend of mine recommended this eyeliner to me and was raving about it and since it was $3 and I had money to waste, I thought why not? Truthfully, that $3 spent was $3 wasted lol. The felt tip was harsh on my eyelids and hurt like a frick. I don't know what to say about pigmentation, but this stuff stained my eyelids when I removed the makeup. It smudges, so if you make a mistake, I can definitely say that you'll have to start all over again instead of quickly fixing it with a q-tip. It's safe to say that if this were the only eyeliner left in the world, I would never wear eyeliner again. I would not buy again.
This was alright. Wasn't very pigmented, the felt tip at the end started to separate....I just kinda threw it out after using it for a month.
This eyeliner was great. It provided me with a nice look to my eyes, enchancing them to big and bright while my normal eyes are small and almond-shaped. It was easy to apply with little to no effort, and I was happy with it.
eyes are bigger
loses thick, rich color after a week of usage
doesnt last long
I really liked how the applicator of the product was thin to large; provided good winged look I was looking for. But after a few tries, I was in my bathroom and looking in the mirror up close when I saw that the thick black color I had hoped for wasn't there, instead a watery-looking grey. I frowned, reapplied to the same area a few times, and it was better. Overall, I would probably buy this product again because the cons are manageable. But there are plenty of other good ones!
This pen isn't all that great for doing the cat-eyeliner thing, at least thats my opinion. The tip of mine kind of expanded and "pilled", sort of like a sweater? So now it's not very sharp; not great for those fine lines you want. BUT mine is probably two years old (which means I should probably get rid of it, GROSS!)
I do really love it though. My eyes don't look good with the cat eye thing anyway, so I just use this right at the corner of my eyes, just a tiny bit and I kind of smudge it out and it stays all day. This is really all I need so I'm happy with the product.
For this price, I will continue to buy. I recommend trying this product, because for the cheap price even if you dont like it as a HG product, you can still probably use it for something.
Ugh. I LOVED this thing at first and then after about 4 uses it came out light after I was done with one eye. Unusable. Great price and packaging, not so great product.
With this product, you get what you pay for. It was very cheap and cheap quality as well. It is not pigmented AT ALL! It was good for about 2 uses, and then it turned out as a really light and barely worked. After a while, the liner turns clumpy and dry. I would not recommend this product to anyone who wants a REAL LEGIT working eyeliner. Instead, I would recommend the Stila Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner Pen, if you are willing to invest.
This is for the Essence Stay Put eyeliner pen in black. I love pen eyeliners because I have a graphics and art background and these are super comfortable for me to use. I have VERY oily lids and no eyeliner lasts for long on them. I was using Colorstay and Physicians Formula pens most often, I even used eyeshadow primer and put my eyeliner on last, and still had fading or even some smearing on the lower lash line. Not with this baby. This one has great intense pigment and REALLY stays put. Even through swimming. No fading, no running and no smearing (my waterproof mascara smudged after the pool, but my eyeliner stayed where it was!). It is definitely staying put!!!! Plus, it's a steal at less than $3.50 (I got mine at Ulta). My only complaint is that the tip of the pen got a little fraying which was annoying but minimally so. It can be difficult to remove, but I found a slightly oilier eye makeup remover first did the trick. I only hope they start to make this in other colors!
This is my favourite eyeliner pen! I've used a few other brands (most of them 5-7x more expensive) but none of them stay as well as the essence one! On me, it doesn't smudge, and only fades after about 10 hours, but even when it fades it's a nice dark grey, still quite visible.
I used this eyeliner for more than half a year :)
-Doenst smudge on oily eyelid (or monolid, which is great :D)
-It is longlasting
-Good for thin lines when its still new (but after, its actually hard to make thin lines)
-I dont think this product lasts long (the whole eyeliner in general)...I used it everyday, and i had to buy another one quite fast... (~3 months?) Well that do you want, its cheap xD
Now, i use the SuperFine one, and its better for thin lines. But the "normal" one doenst stain the eyelid...
Ill go with the normal one next time
Excellent price, not the most amazing staying power, but that can be overcome by setting with a bit of eyeshadow in a matching colour.
