I wasn't expecting much from a drugstore eyeliner, but I was very pleasantly surprised with Master Precise! I tried much more expensive eyeliners, but I think this performed better than a lot of them, and it's much cheaper! I used to use Stila Stay All Day liquid liner and it worked great for about two weeks and then the tip dried out and stopped working (and this liner costs about $30 here in Canada). I've been using Master Precise daily for over two months now and it has not dried up yet! The color stays put all day long and doesn't smudge or run, it's easy to remove, and I find it easy to make a precise line and little flicks and wings. I think I'll be sticking with Master Precise from now on!
I don't recommend this eyeliner if you have watery eyes or oily eye lids. I find it smears very easily and transfers onto your upper lid. I did like that it's a very skinny felt tip with opaque color. I wish there was a waterproof version.
Okay update: I thought I loved this. The first few days I really did. But the first few days I put this on naked lids, the past couple days I've been wearing eyeshadow and this product does not work well with eyeshadow. The felt tip drags, and almost dries a little when the shadow touches it. Because I have to apply more pressure when using this product with eyeshadow, the tip bends, so then my precise thin line spreads and makes for a longer application process with me having to fix all the mistakes. All in all, I'm sticking with my line stilleto, it's way better even if I have to wear my liner thicker, which I do anyways.
This is the only liquid liner I've ever been able to wear. I've just gotten into makeup and for a total beginner I found the felt tip very easy to work with! This is the only liner for me. I've tried everything.
I DO NOT recommend this liner! I typically love felt tip liners, but this one is just terrible. The felt gets very flimsy very quickly which makes application awkward and difficult. I found that from the beginning, there was little to no product at the tip and it was all focused at the base. That being said, I can still ultimately get a decent line in the end (just takes a bit more time than usual). Once it's on however, it does NOT stay on and after about 30-60 mins of wear, it fades to a dull grey. It also smudges and slides around like no other! I wouldn't say that my eye lids are particularly oily, but the way the product moves around would make you believe otherwise. Every time I wear this liner, I end up with it all over my eye lids and lower brow bone and no matter what I do to try and prevent it from happening it still smudges.
Basically, don't waste your money! It may be relatively inexpensive, but there are far better drugstore alternatives out there!!
This has been a dream come true for me! I can wear this all day and it doesn't look cracked, smudgy or grossly faded. The long tip and tapered end makes it great for drawing on super sharp points and thin lines. I wouldn't go for this if you're a complete eyeliner beginner though - it's can be quite difficult to correct mistakes once it's on.
Comes off easily with cleanser & a cotton pad or cleansing wipes.
Looks great for about an hour or two but then fades into a grey. I also don't like the felt tip much. It's a bit long and after a couple of uses the tip becomes very bendy and hard to control.
Right now I wear this on days where I only have one class and I'm not going anywhere just to try and use it up. I wouldn't re-purchase after I finish.
As much as I wanted to like this eyeliner, it was very clumsy to wield and had subpar staying power.
I'm constantly on the hunt for the best liquid eyeliners, so I was hoping for the best with Master Precise. I bought the one in black for everyday wear. Upon first impression, I was surprised by the size of the felt tip. It was probably twice as long and, even though it's tapered, the widest part is about twice as wide as those I've previously used. The tip, I've noticed, is also not completely tapered; the tip ends off in a small, blunt cut. It usually doesn't bother me, but sometimes I need to make a sharper point that is difficult to achieve with this eyeliner. Plus, the felt tip is quite flimsy; it bends easily, which can sometimes mess up my application.
I like the pigmentation of Master Precise. It's very black, and it applies opaquely in one coat. I haven't had issues with it fading or being too watery.
Unfortunately, the staying power is a letdown. This eyeliner isn't claiming to be fully longwearing or waterproof, but this eyeliner was so easy to smudge! I have naturally watery outer eye corners due to allergies, and this eyeliner had no chance against moisture. It budged and smudged with incredible ease. That's a bit of a dealbreaker for me; staying power is very important for the 20 or so hours a day that I wear makeup, and this one didn't deliver.
Master Precise is relatively inexpensive, but it's on the higher priced end of drugstore eyeliners. They go around $10 a pop. I think it's a decent product if you don't wear makeup for too long, or if you don't mind limited staying power. Also, it helps to have patience when wielding this liner. Imo, there are some better liquid liners out there.
If you wear eyeshadow DO NOT but this product. The moment it glides across the shadow it dries up. After about 20 mins on this on my eyes it turns grey. Worst $12.49 ever spent.
I've used this for a while but am looking for something different. It's good when it's new, but dries out SO quickly. The staying power is ok but it doesn't stay black all day - it fades to a dark grey, which isn't great. I would re-purchase if I were in a rush and hadn't found anything else to replace it, but ideally not.
