very balack, soft, easy to apply, won't smudge after using too faced shadow insurance (because I never try it without tfsi, so I don't know how it works without an eye primier)
one of my best pencil liners. it's SUPER creamy and 'intense'. it's great if you want to smudge it up for a smoky look. i love using it for my upper waterline. i can't depend on it to hold up on my water line though. when i use it on my top lid, i feel like i can't get a precise line (but maybe that's my fault bc i don't sharpen it to a complete point). if i do use it on my top lid, i usually fix it up a bit with an angled eyeliner brush. the lasting power is decent, a lot better than many others i've tried.
I have this liner in all the colors available, and they are amazing. They set after a few seconds and will stay without smudging after that until removed, but are super creamy and smooth. The dark blue and green ones are gorgeous, but I find the purple to be quite dull and less vibrant. Having said that, the pigmentation is awesome on all colors. I would say this is an exact dupe for the limited edition MAC intense pearlglide liners, having tried them both.
I had bought this because I was looking for an affordable and accessible black eyeliner. On MakeUpAlley, this seemed to have what I was looking for: pigmentation, long lasting and affordable to define my eyes. However, it does not last on my eyes. It is indeed black and that's the only thing that's true for me. I like lining my waterline and I know that many products aren't safe for the waterline so I do take caution and unfortunately this did not last for a long time. After an hour, an hour and a half after applying it, it smudges and it's barely there. On the lower lashline, upper lashline, tightline, it does not stay. It smudges pretty badly. So I'm sad that this didn't work for me. It's not an entirely terrible product; the richness of the black colour is really gorgeous though.
very pigmented! Rich colors. good buy when on sale BOGO FREE/50% off
Fantastic Product - long lasting, cheap, decent packaging, excellent application. I've been using this product for several years and can't imagine changing eyeliner. This liner is a rich, dark black which glides on easily and stays put all day. It is quite soft so you probably won't get a super sharp line unless you sharpen before each use. For a sharp line I'll usually go over with gel or liquid liner (using this as a base and guide). I use the liner on my lid and to tightline and have no issues with my contacts.
I LOVE THIS EYELINER!
No seriously, this eyeliner is comparable if not exactly like the UD Zero eyeliner. This eyeliner doesn't smudge as much either, and I would definitely buy it again - it's much cheaper than Urban Decay's eyeliner as well. It comes on easily and clean, I love it!
I've used a lot of eyeliners and have not came across a cheap and staying power like this one. I line my waterline and wear contacts which means, eyeliner usually smudge or fade away to the bottom line.
I love the smooth application its gives and the colour is very intense. It doesnt know smudge or fade away like other eyeliners. Revlon colourstay eyeliner did not work for me. the eyeliner would drop to the bottom of my lower lash line
Overall, i would recommend the Prestige total intensity eyeliner.
This is the creamiest, blackest, and most affordable eyeliner I've ever used. The richness of the black is something I always looked for with every new eyeliner! I like it so much, and will never go without. However, I wing my eyeliner, so I need more precision than Total Intensity will give me. Because it's so creamy, it dulls significantly with each use. I have to sharpen it each time I am finishing off my eyes with wings. I guess in that sense it turns out slightly more expensive than the ticket price--which is dirt cheap so it's ok. Now I have to use 2 eyeliners and can't just have one in rotation. For precision and waterline, I use Revlon ColorStay. It won't smudge even if you fall asleep without washing your face, but it's like gray instead of black! The pencil is also hard and rigid (the downside of precision). For everything else, I use total Intensity, often having to smooth it out/clean it up with an angled brush. It's really messy and hard to control. I read on the MU Board that supposedly it's meant to be used with the Prestige metal sharpener, and that once you get the sharpener, the mess issue is resolved. Kind of annoying to have to buy their "matching" product, but if that's what will perfect my near-HG product, that's fine!
