So, I purchased this eyeliner on a whim. I got the color golden ink (number 235). I have been on a hunt for a gold eyeliner that it similar to a gold eyeliner pencil that Sephora sold years ago (was my ultimate favorite eyeliner, especially on the waterline since it helped brighten my waterline and wasn't completely obvious since I have a more neutral-leaning-slightly-warm skintone). Unfortunately, that darn pencil has been discontinued and I have yet to find a good dupe... until I found golden ink. It actually stays on better than the one Sephora had! And once it's on, it actually stays on. Also, I have extremely sensitive eyes and they get irritated easily; this pencil has not caused irritation for me. With all that has been said, this is the only color I've tried. I'll continue to find/purchase this pencil (and hopefully, CG won't discontinue it... at least not the gold one). I cannot vouch for the other colors and to be honest, I don't know if I will purchase the other colors, considering the more negative reviews on them. If you are hesitant on trying one of these liners, I am probably not the best person to ask about the others; however, I will say that golden ink has definitely been my favorite drugstore eyeliner of 2013.
I bought this at a CVS as a buy one, get one half off. I was out of black eyeliner, so I popped in quick one morning before work so I could put my face on when I got there. I had high hopes which were soon dashed when I discovered it was crumblier than a Chips Ahoy cookie and weakly pigmented.
Although it goes on smoothly, it creates smudges that somehow travel down under your eye after a while. In other words, it makes you kind of like a raccoon after an hour or two of wearing it. I recommend a better eyeliner...
Goes on really smoothly and is really blend able. I hate eyeliners that are rock hard and difficult to draw on that cause you to pull at your eyelid. I really liked this eyeliner. I am not sure if it stays on all day because I haven't been monitoring it.. But it is so easy to use for everyday. You don't have to sharpen it as you just twist it.
I am surprised about some of the negative reviews. I guess I am in the minority. I'm not sure if I would buy this again as I prefer liquid eyeliners and am partial to L'oreal eyeliners, but this is pretty good. The pencil twists up and it was very pigmented. I did have to blend the line a bit better with my finger so that it was a less harsh line, but the results were nice and looks great with a smoky eye.It lasted even on my oily lids and tear duct so that is a plus. The only thing I can really complain about is that it took some time to remove. That is when it really smudged and I had to keep going over my eyes with a cleansing wipe to remove it well. I have the shade in charcoal black.
The tip of it does tend to break off, the eyeliner is too dry in my opinion. Also i got the blackest one and it is definitely not that black. Very disappointing looks to me like i had been wearing this for hours at initial application. I hope to return it soon.
I actually like this product a lot. A very good product when applying little lines. I have never had a problem with Ink It smudging either.
The reviews on here aren't very favorable but after watching a positive review on YouTube, I decided to purchase this product. I actually like it! I bought it in black and apply it on my top lid and water line. Pretty good staying power and haven't noticed any smudging. Keeps my makeup looking clean and like I just applied it. Brings out my brown eyes nicely.
excellent pigmentation....super easy to use...tip is perfect for a fine line!!!
I don't typically buy drugstore make-up, but saw this at Ulta and had a coupon. I''ve been on the hunt for an eyeliner that doesn't smudge. I have to say I'm impressed. I never have a problem with liner on my upper lash line, but have a problem with smudging on my lower lash line. Not only did it last all day, it didn't smudge! I went back and bought it in another color. Yea Cover Girl!
