I use this in an unconventional way, and for this, it works great: After applying a gold or bronze lid color, I apply some pencil strokes on top,at the lash line and a little way up on the lid....it doesn't even need to be visible because the PURPOSE is to provide a sticky base coat for my next step, patting on a bit of black powder shadow. This method makes the black powder shadow stick, also prevents fallout, which black shadows often cause. I end up with a beautiful blackened, ombered effect over the gold or bronze. This works way better for me than the dark horse, smog and snakebite shadows in my UD palettes.
It's hard to be too disappointed having only spent 1.39 on this.
It's an okay eyeliner. I ran out of my go to Neutrogena Automatic Grey liner and needed something fast before I went to a holiday party.
The application was very smooth. The point was the perfect size for an automatic liner. The color was a true black without particles of glitter or shine.
However, once I applied the liner to both lids and turned back to my makeup counter to pick up my shadow the liner had already settled into my crease. It did so in the way an overly oily liner would. This was more disappointing considering I had Too Faced Shadow Insurance under. I fixed the smudging and tried to let it dry without much luck.
I put an Urban Decay shadow on top and it stayed for the rest of the day without migrating.
The smudging isn't really that big of an issue considering I always have shadow on top of my liner but it does make me reluctant to wear it during warmer weather.
Another problem with this is the actual cosmetic isn't snug in the applicator. Meaning the stick of liner can wiggle around a bit during application, which is a bit irritating when you're trying to create a fine line.
Overall, not the worst liner by any standards. I definitely will not throw away- keep around for touch ups or back up.
Just brought it. I ran out of my KISS 24 hr one which I Love!!!! Cant get to the store that sells it till later on so I picked this up as a sub. smooth n creamy. great for smokey eyes though I wonder about the lasting power of it...............
If you're a fan of a smokey effect, this is pretty much the best steal you can get. It's really pigmented and creamy, and very smudgable.
A huge downside is that it's so creamy you really need to set it with a matching powder, unless you want to go for racoon eyes. If you put this on top of something more long wearing like the maybelline color tattoo it should stay on fairly well too.
Well... I'm kind of disappointed to be writing a bad review. I bought this at Deals, here in Ohio, US, and I was hoping for a decent, cheap eyeliner. Sadly, that wasn't the case.
Yes, I realize it's only $1, but there is so little product. It's not a lot of eyeliner, despite the stick's size. But my biggest complaint is that the eyeliner smudges extremely. It's so smooth, if I were to accidentally wipe my eye, it'd come straight off! And putting it on your waterline is a big mess, too. I'm glad that it's smudgable and creamy... but it's almost too smudgable and creamy.
One last, final note, is that when you recap the eyeliner, the eyeliner has to be retracted all the way down or else the cap with squish the tip. I've already ruined half of it by accidentally leaving it up a little, only to have it smashed when I uncap it.
I wouldn't buy this again nor recommend it.
it's only a dollar and it's the best eyeliner i've used. pick a pack up every time i'm at the dollartree.
This eyeliner is really good, almost matches up to the Rimmel London 24Hr Stay Liner (I think that's the name). Anyways, it is the best "primer" for my liquid liner. Usually, when putting on makeup for school, I line closest to the lash line with this liner first, then apply the liquid liner on top. And this eyeliner helps the liquid stay on much longer, plus makes it look more well done. The price is just unbelievably cheap for something so awesome. I mean, $1.00, really?? Just by looking at the price, I honestly thought it was going to be another rip-off, but thank God it wasn't. Cuz if it were a ripoff, then that one dollar could've been some use. But it was worth it. Perfect for a natural look, too. I am so buying this again :)
I just bought this two days ago from Dollar Tree because I ran out of my recent staple, Rimmel Exaggerate. I had always used either the Rimmel or Ulta brand, but I'm trying to save some money so I decided to give this a chance since it's only $1. I tried it for the first time yesterday along with my Ulta eyeshadow and it went on SO smoothly and perfectly. I loved it! It stayed on all day long and was easy to remove with Vaseline. I'm so happy that I tried this product and I will no longer spend $7+ on eyeliner when I can get the same quality for 1!
I found this for just a dollar while shopping. It's one of the best eyeliners I've used, hands down! It goes on simple, smooth, and unlike other eyeliners I've used in the past it's very easy to take off and It's easy to fix any mistakes made. However, you have to be careful because It can break easily. Other than that, it's an amazing product, and I'd recommend it to everyone!
This product is the best eyeliner I have ever used. It goes on smoothly and with precision. The line looks like satin. I buy this product continuously and have no plans of ever changing it. Seriously, it is way better than any other eyeliner I have ever used.
