I really didn't like this product, I have big bug eyes and it was hard to get on. I like creamy, smooth eyeliners that come out easily- and this one didn't do that for me.
This is my HG eyeliner. I have pale skin and wanted a natural look. That is nearly impossible because most eyeliners look too dark on me. I also dislike the brown colors and other odd colors for an everyday or natural look. This eyeliner was the perfect shade and I am about to buy it for the third time in a row. It is just a neutral color, I'm not sure how to explain it. I have dark blonde hair, pale skin, and dark blue eyes.
The smudge stick and cap on the end always break off and get lost. And the writing always wears off by the end, so I struggle to find the shade and brand again. But I finally found it and decided to write this review. The cap over the color side though has never gotten lost, even though it tends to get slightly cracked by the end of use.
And yes the click stick is great, with no sharpener needed. One of the most annoying things is trying to sharpen eyeliners.
Love this color! I have been told by half the SAs and makeup consultants who have looked at me that I have warm-toned skin; the other half have sworn my skin is cool-toned. This Khaki Grey is a true, beautiful neutral and one of the few products which has ever looked perfectly suited to me. I use it as an eyeliner on the upper lids only. With mascara and tinted moisturizer it gives a very natural but "finished" look. Love.
I use this product as a brow pencil instead of what it was marketed for because the neutral gray color is perfect for my very dark brows. My brow hairs are soft black and anything brown based just looks weird. This is a medium gray that has no red undertones. It comes in a twist up self sharpening pen applicator. The only gripes I have about it are: the product is a bit too soft for use on the brows and the tip is a bit too wide to draw individual hairlike strokes but since it is not made for use on the brows I guess those issues can be expected. I use it mainly for shading or filling in occasional gaps in my brows and with that, it is perfect. Lasting power is average on my oily complexion. I might repurchase if I don't find an actual brow pencil in this same color.
I liked the color, and I liked that it was easy to apply. It wasn't too waxy, or too hard, or too soft. Also, it didn't run. However, it did fade quite a bit. A couple of hours after application I could barely tell I had anything on. So overall it was fairly good, just not for me.
I use this as a Brow pencil. I thought the color looked more natural on Asians, than Black or Black Brown. It's not long wearing but it's convenient, no sharpening and cheap.
Since I love experimenting and trying out new products, I rarely do repeat purchases of a single product over and over again, but I've made an exception for this eyeliner. Truth is, although CoverGirl has marketed this as an eyeliner, they should have marketed this as a brow-pencil instead, because it's the bomb-diggity.
I'm Asian with an olive-based fair complexion and I've tried countless browns, near blacks, and taupes for my brows. I've had so much trouble trying to find a pencil that doesn't make my eyebrows look drawn in (as much as that may be the truth). BUT THIS IS THE ONE, GUYS. THE ONE. It makes my eyebrows look like THE TRUTH.
What I makes this product so genius is its color. The warm, almost-brownish grey is so natural when applied with short, light strokes on your brows. I could see this color being very flattering on those with cool-toned hair: ashy blonde, chocolate brunette, and deep brown/black.
One problem though, the packaging seems a bit faulty. If the pencil twist-up mechanism becomes broken, no product comes out. And it's such a bummer. I'm working on trying to take apart my first pencil, but I've bought a spare in case. Still, you MUST try this pencil out. It'll save your brows.
NC25 here. What I love most about this eyeliner is the small point. I don't have to mess with sharpeners. Being a busy mom that is a nice perk. I ended up with this grey khaki color. I used it twice so far....the first time I thought the shade was much to light for any real definition. The second time I used it as a base eyeliner then tapped on a PF brownish plum eye shadow over it and it looked absolutely beautiful. Not over done. Just right for daytime. I like this style of eyeliner but I think I will try a different shade next time.
The eyeliner didnt last on my eyes very long
A hour after I put it on it smudged and didnt look good at all.
When i put it on my water line it didnt even last a hour, I looked like a racoon!
It might work better for people with less oily skin
I was looking for a lighter color eyeliner, as black and brown look too harsh on me. This is the perfect color, a warm gray, and very flattering. I don't like a sharp line and this smudges nicely. It is an automatic pencil, so no more sharpening and wasting product. The only thing I don't like is the little plastic cap over the smudge tip. I know I will lose it!
