I didn't even know they still made this until I stumbled upon it at the drugstore the other day (I purchased it in black)! I have to second what a previous reviewer wrote, this dries quickly, and really does last all day long, but is easy to remove with a basic eye makeup remover or regular face wash. I like the tiny brush, it makes it easy to get a thin, precise line, the formula doesn't smear or flake on me at all, and I have oilier eyelids. I usually use this to line my top lashline, and to create a wing sometimes, and it stays perfect looking until I wash it off. It also has good staying power on my waterline, and while it's not invincible on the waterline (no liner is) , at least it doesn't smear in the corners of my eyes like so many others do. The old school bottle is too cute! I would repurchase!
Honestly, people who buy this are wasting their time. When I first put it on, it looked so good!! And then I put on mascara and it looked like my eyes had black dandruff.. It flakes SOOO bad. Omg. It's not too hard to put it on but no matter how easy it is it's not worth it. It is also not the slightest bit waterproof. AT ALL. (I had waterproof) I now use the line stiletto by maybelline and it is much better. Flakes a little but DEFINITELY not as bad as this one.
It's a bit weird feeling on your eyes if you do a few coats. lasts long, and very black. I like it generally but i don't LOVE it.
For the most part, this is a nice eyeliner, but it could be a lot better. I like that the formula dries quickly & sets to a semi-matte finish. It stays on overall, but I noticed that it does flake/crack pretty easily. It certainly is not waterproof.
This probably isn't the eyeliner to use if you've got oily skin. I don't like wearing this for an extended period of time because the flaking gets bad & all over the place. I can literally peel this eyeliner off with my fingers to remove it! I like the easiness of it & I like the intensity of the black, so even though it's not long lasting, I'd buy it again simply because it's cheap. It's good to wear if you're going out for a short period of time (like a class or a lunch date) or if you have nothing better. continued >>
My favorite liquid liner ever. I sucked at applying it at first but I got the hang of it. It lasts ALL day and night as long as you don't rub your eye it won't flake off. If drys super quickly and has a strong black somewhat shiny look that I love. It's waterproof but peels off easily when you rub and wash your face so I love how long lasting it is and how easy it is to remove. Great product, highly recommend.
This product is not too expensive at around $6.00. It is very difficult to apply and the formula starts clumping after a month. Removal even with waterproof make-up remover is very difficult. It smudges and is hard to get off after. It cracks and flakes off within a few hours. I do not recommend this product. I would recommend the NYC liquid eyeliner. At only $3.00 it works so much better. It doesn't get clumpy and is very easy to apply. The color is dark and it stays on for hours.
After trying many eyeliners I usually come back to this one, mostly because instead of it smearing around your eyes giving you the raccoon look, it will kinda flake off. i would rather have it flake off and just apply a stick liner in parts it flaked off then having raccoon eyes! my eyelids are a little oily but it doesnt effect the liners staying power. I like how the liner is a nice black color as well and even though it says waterproof it isn't so waterproof. But I have repurchased plenty of times to know I like it.
In my experience, at first everything seemed ok but is lacking in lasting power. I have oily lids and after awhile it will start to flake.
If you're like me, i wouldn't recommend it. If you have dry skin then maybe.
I love this eyeliner so much! I am in no way, shape, or form good at putting on liquid eyeliner, but this one is so easy to apply! I received it as a gift, and I am planning on repurchasing it after I run out. I love the formula, the applicator, and the way it looks when applied. It doesn't take a long time to dry on your lids, like some liquid eyeliners do. I highly recommend trying it out.
When I first got this eyeliner, I loved it. Waterproof, liquid liner that actually works for SUPER cheap? Yes, please. However, I've come across a couple issues as time goes on:
1. The brush takes some major getting used to.
2. After about a month, the formula starts to get sticky and majorly clumpy.
3. It's got excellent staying power, but isn't completely waterproof.
4. The mouth(?) of the tube has detached and become pretty invasive.
That being said, I still like it. The color is a super dark black that dries with some shine but isn't overly shiny. It'll work for now, but as soon as I can afford it I'm going to try something else not from a drugstore.
UPDATE: I bought it again. I'm really starting to get used to this damn thing...
