i don't know why this gets so many negative reviews, but i was in love when i got this. it was SO black, and i had no trouble applying it to my eyes. works great for the waterline, unlike 99% of the eyeliners i've tried. it lasts for a long time, too(:
i haven't bought this in while, because wal-mart raised the price, and i've found a new love for two dollars less anyways :]
fabulous eyeliner for lining the lower waterline! it never runs but does fade over time unfortunately. its such a lovely product though. however! i hav had incidents where the product has fallen out of its retractable tube...stupid packaging...
I don't really like the twist mechanism, as the eyeliner tends to snap off easily. It has a drier formula and fails to stay on my water line. I will not be repurchasing. I had to run the eye liner on my inner rims a couple of times to get a dark line.
I was looking for a fine ,cheap retractable eyeliner pencil for my waterline and caught up with this one....It's an OK pencil as in Staying in Waterline for at least a few hrs ( 2- 4 hrs after setting it with an eyeshadow and powder under the eyes) and Considering the Price...
It's richly pigmented and creamy textured .So just one or two draws would make the perfect line...
Excellent for tightlining and Upperlid .
But since I've got the two opposites on my eyes , Nothing would stay put on my lower waterline for more than 4 hrs even my fav MILANI Liquif'eye and Anything would stay put for an entire day on my upperlid even the Palladio pencil which cost around $ 2 , this one runs down from my waterline after 3 hrs.
I'm actually quite a fan of this product. For an eyeliner of this price, I find that it stays on all day, rather like a liquid liner when applied to the top lashline. I do set it with powder before applying mascara though, perhaps this is why I find it lasts so long. The crayon is slightly annoying to use though, very rarely do I get a clean line, especially when I'm rushing to get to work. However, I would recommend it to someone who wants a long-lasting liner at a reasonable (well not so reasonable now that it's gone up) price. And I'll probably continue buying it until someone tells me they know of something better that won't break the bank.
I'm not a fan of this eyeliner. As soon as I went to use it, it crumbled twice and left a jagged edge. I decided only to use it along my waterline and use a different eyeliner on my eyes. It worked OK on the waterline which is why I gave it 2 lippies. Will not repurchase.
There seem to be a lot of negative reviews, but I like this product. I use this eyeliner when I know I will be sweating or possibly getting splashed with water, that sort of thing. I wear it not on my waterline, but directly in my lash line just to make my lashes look fuller. It won't hold a line crisply. Most of the time I very lightly smudge it for a softer effect. But, after a long day it doesn't end up all over my lids or face like other eyeliners will. I've even tried showering with it on just to what would happen. Same result. That's why I like it.
Very runny, drippy eyeliner. Almost like using a cheap marker. I bought this in the 'expresso' shade and it went on like black, which does not look good on me. Unfortunately, I cannot return because I threw away the receipt :/
went on smooth, nice pigmentation.
and smudged unstoppably on me :(
will not repurchase.
I've tried a lot of eyeliner in my life as it's my favorite type of cosmetic, and this is probably one of the worst I've ever tried. It was inexpensive at less than $7 and has the bonus of being self-sharpening (you twist the end to make more come out), but that's probably the only good thing about this eyeliner.
Application was difficult. It didn't go on even and simply would not smooth on over my upper lash line. After complaining to a friend I decided to try it again, this time along my lower lash line and it started to crumble! I'm SO glad I didn't try using it on my waterline because that would've ended with pain!! Maybelline usually isn't so bad but this particular product is just no good. I'm going back to the drug store tomorrow to get something else.
