Perfect? No.... but close enough for such a cheap drugstore liquid eyeliner. Would definitely repurchase! It does everything that it claims such as being waterproof and I don't regret a single penny I spent on this product. No smudges or flakes after a long period of wear, only some fading but that's going to the extreme (10+ hrs) AND I have oily lids. The pigmentation is incredible for the price. So rich and black, and it dries matte fairly quickly. Love! My only fuss about this product is the felt tip. Although it is very short and easy to maneuver, I find that the actual tip of the applicator is too thick for my liking. It is hard to get a very sharp edge for the classic cat eye look, and requires a bit of practice and getting used to. One con isn't going to outweigh all the amazing qualities of this product. I found my new holy grail waterproof - super black liquid liner!

Love this liquid liner. It's darker and longer lasting than Physicians Formula Eye booster! It does take a few seconds longer to dry than PF because of its higher alcohol content, but once it sets it does not smudge. I haven't noticed and eye irritation due to the alcohol but people with more sensitive eyes may need to watch out. (Alcohol is a common ingredient in liquid liners, don't be scared unless your eyes are sensitive!)The felt tip doesn't come to a sharp point which is my only complaint, unless you're a master artist, use a better brush if you want thin, sharp lines.

YES! Very pigmented and lasts all day! I have slightly oily eyelids and always have some smearing but not with this stuff! For $2.99 you can't beat it!

How on earth does this get such great reviews?! Yes, it's cheap. However, it sucks. It was very easy to use, but it felt so strange on my eyelids. It felt like I had used glue on them. It looked strange too, and didn't move naturally with my eyelids but instead tugged on them (I hope this makes sense). Also, it was very hard to get off, even with my awesome make up remover (yes, I know its a waterproof eye liner). As much as I would not like to recommend it, its cheap so try it. I am obviously a minority here, so maybe you'll be one of the lucky ones.

When I first bought Essence's Liquid Waterproof Eyeliner, I didn't know what to expect. I had only used kohl pencils before and didn't know if I would be able to work with a liquid liner. Since it was also very cheap, I didn't expect much of it.It took me some practice, but I easily learned how to create that perfect glance. The black color is a lot more intense than those good old kohl pencils and the applicator is quite easy! I like how it's solid but also flexible (=perfect!). The eyeliner also lives up to the promise of being waterproof. If I rub my eyes, the eyeliner might flake off a bit, but stays put in general.The only downside of this product is that you can't avoid spilling some eyeliner on your eyelashes (or face), since it's liquid. I don't mind that much and just take the excess eyeliner away. It even looks a bit like I've put on mascara, so two for the price of one, hehe!Based on my experience, I would totally recommend this eyeliner. I love the quality, especially for such a low price! It's the only liquid eyeliner I've ever used and I'm so content I keep buying it over and over!

This is an underrated liquid eyeliner but it is a holy grail product to me! I work for 8 hours and this liquid eyeliner works and stays all day without smudging and it can be removed easily as well (with makeup remover). The price won't hurt you. In terms of applying the product - it can be watery and it takes time to dry but it doesn't matter to me. Overall, it is a great product!!! Highly recommended.

I like this eyeliner it's pigmented and easy to use the only thing I don't like about it is that it seems to have a slightly runny consistency so be sure to wipe some of the excess off on a tissue before applying I'd say that it needs to be touched up every 4 hours or so

Wow. This is the ultimate matte liquid liner formula! It's the most opaque it could be, it doesn't crease or wrinkle or flake, and it lasts a long while. The downside I've found is the brush tip just sucks for fine application and doesn't draw a line of consistent thickness. Now don't judge me for still giving this 5 lippies with that issue, because it's just simpler for me to use an angled eyeliner brush to apply this than stress about the bad applicator for this wonderful product.This stuff is amazing and inexpensive. My new favorite black liquid eyeliner.

I will add my love for this liner. It's not the only one I ever use, but that's because I get board sometimes. When I need very black, long wearing, easy-to-use liner, it's my absolute go-to! I have used every high and low end Iiquid liner out there and this is better than almost any I've used. Takes a bit to dry, but boy does it stay in place. Dirt cheap as a bonus!! Love it greatly!!

I have to say I love the Essence Liquid Waterproof Eyeliner. I have nothing but good to say about this product. There are many more pros for me than cons.
-Truly black in color
-Super affordable, under 4 dollars usually.
-Small so great for travelling
-Great amount of product for the price. (Most drugstore liners of same/similar size are anywhere from 7-12 dollars)
-Easy to remove
-Fixing slight mistakes are easy as it doesn't dry too fast but doesn't take long.
-Would be good if the brush was a small bit thinner. (I am someone who likes thinner eyeliner and I do not do a cat or winged liner look)
-Only available in Canada at Shoppers Drug mart and seems like it's only available at Ulta in the US.
Overall, as someone who likes thin and very black eyeliner, I love this one! It's a makeup must have. The fact that it doesn't leave a shadow of any sort on your eye after removable is the best part of all! I will repurchase!
