One of my favourite eyeliners and I have repurchased this! I find this practical as an 'everyday' eyeliner. The color is neutral and not too bold. The texture of the pencil is just right and application is smooth. Lasts all day too (note: I don't have particularly oily lids). The downside is that it does smudge so applying it on the lower lids (especially the lid margins) may not be a good idea.
Far too slick for my liking.
I realize that eyeliners need to have the ability to smudge but they shouldn't smudge right off! I am assuming that this thick/oily formula is supposed to assist in lash growth, but it is a sacrifice I am not willing to make.
Absolute no-no for people with oily lids (or maybe just people in general- please, don't waste your money).
An average DS brown liner. Formulation is similar to UD 24/7 eyeliners, very creamy and smudgy. Wears well on my lids but not on the waterline.
I've only tried this a couple of times, but the wear time isn't amazing, even using an eyeshadow primer underneath. The liner goes on exceptionally smooth and creamy, but it seems to disintegrate several hours later leaving only a barely visible smidge at the lashline. I'll try again using a powder eyeshadow to set, although other products of this ilk (UD 24/7) don't absolutely require it. My eyelids are notibly on the dry side too. Because of the soft consistency of the pencil, it wears down quickly and will need to be sharpened frequently as well.
This is a beautiful rich brown color that is extremely easy to apply. I thought it wasn't going to be very long lasting because of how smoothly it glides across my lids, but that isn't the case. It's also a good eyeliner if you like to layer eyeshadow on top because it creates a good base for that. I have no idea if it helps your eyelashes grow, but the smooth formula certainly could help moisturize the base of your lashes, helping to keep them strong for longer. The biggest drawback of this is how difficult it is to sharpen.
This is creamy, dark and has AMAZING staying power. It smudges out if you want it to while still keeping color. I love this so much. I got it on sale for 2 dollars and want to go buy more!
This very dark brown shade applies smoothly and very opaque, highly pigmented. It appear almost a rich dark chocolate brown. This liner did not fade on me after the work day, still was about 100% still there and about 90% as vibrant as in the morning, which is very good performance for a drug store eye liner. I recommend these as a quick and cheap basic brown liner.
I cannot speak to the lash growth claims, as I use a lash growth serum already. I feel like it is very similar in creamyness and color to the Cover Girl Liquiline Blast eyeliner in Brown. Both pencils need to be sharpened often in order to maintain a point because of how creamy they are.
I really like this eyeliner. I prefer creamy gel eye liners that do not tug on the eyelid..Espresso is a rich dark brown, very opaque. I only use this on my upper lid area. It glides smoothly across and lasts all day on me. I do not notice any growth in my lashes. Also, I have no irritation from this product. This performs just as well if not better than Urban Decay 24/7 liners and costs way less.
I really wanted to like this liner but, like a few people have already stated, it irritated my eyes and made my eyelids swollen and puffy. It was horrible. There is something in the ingredients that, apparently, does NOT agree with some people. It's too bad they can't change this to a hypoallergenic forumla and remove whatever the irritating ingredient is, because otherwise this liner is excellent - goes on smooth, rich pigment, long lasting.
I'm very sad that I had to return this. :(
I gave it 2 lippies instead of 1 because it really IS a great liner - IF it doesn't make your eyelids swell to the size of eggs.
I purchased this product because I wanted a good brown eyeliner; I think it's a bit more suitable for me than black is. It does do good on the lash line like it claims, though it works horribly on my waterline, so if you're looking for a good liner for your waterline, I wouldn't recommend this. Overall, though, it's a good eyeliner considering it's from the drugstore. Goes on super smooth too!
