This became my go-to black liner when I got sick of Makeup Forever pencils drying out. The pigment is rich and warm, blendable, then stays put. Worth the price for its smoothness and durability.
Great liner, not as silky as others but that lends it to actually staying on my eyes during the 95+ degree heat, as well as on a run. very black too. Not waxy, unlike other lower end lines, which perhaps is why this applies in such a flawless, hevily pigmented line and stays. Love that it's not the ultra-thick, goopy formula of cream/gel liners and waterproof pencils, which always look too weighty. Smudges nicely and then stays put, giving the "cleanest" of smoky pencils I've tried. Would certainly repurchase.
i only got his in GWP size when i hauled from LM's counter. thankfully, i was able to try this because it is really nice. glides smoothly and perfectly. stays on where it should be for the whole day. i love nars and laura mercier but i have to say that this eyeliner is way better than nars. thank you very much!
I’m an MMM brunette with hazel eyes, in my 40s. Although this is named Black Extreme, if you’re lining above top lashes and/or the inner rim of lower lashes and looking for a long-lasting, startlingly black look, this probably won’t be right for you. It looks that way when first applied but the intensity isn't sustained. Outlining my eyes with this pencil and then finishing with a coat of black mascara makes the whites of my eyes look whiter and my eyes brighter – a subtle improvement on nature - but the pencil is a little too soft and leads to smudging after a few hours. That same defect makes it just the right consistency for a quick and easy tightlining application and for some reason, with this method it seems to stick and not smudge. It's a lovely sooty black.
I love this black eyeliner! Alot of pencils just do not last all day for me, but this one definitely does. I get such a nice precise line w/ this product and barely need to retouch it at all throughout the day.
Even though so many people talk about LM being expensive and, eyeliners being something you can scrimp on, this is a good buy. It is easy on the eyes and the color is intense. Lasts long and does not smear.
