It's an okay product. Nothing special about it. This was my first liquid liner and even then I thought it was alright. I didn't like the brush that much. It's short and somewhat thick with a tip that's good for a nice line but not good enough for a precise line application. The color is pigmented black but I think it rubs off a bit easily. It's okay if you don't touch it. I never wore this for a very long period of time, but I've used it enough to know its quality.

The packaging is VERY small. It's sooooo small with a very long handle/cap. It's not too expensive but for such a small bottle, it might be a bit much (although, I'm not sure if it's as little as I think it holds compared to other liquid liners.)

Good liner for a starter, and it's not too bad. I won't repurchase because I don't like the brush applicator. Only thing good about it, is the pigmentation.

This is the only liquid liner I've used, but I know there is better out there. The colour and price are great, but it ends there. It stings my eyes (which are not sensitive either) and always runs into my inner eye. Like others have said, it leaves red marks where the liner was if you have to take it off to re-apply, and it stings when you remove it. It does come off easily, which is good. It smears like crazy though. Even if I've been wearing it all day long if I touch it it will smear. I used it the other day and I noticed it had smeared on its own also, which is not cool. I never have issues with makeup smearing or sensitivities either. My friends seem to like this more than I do, but then again I've only ever tried this brand. I'm going to try a brush liner next. Def. would try every other brand before I come back to this one.

I never knew I had sensitive eyes until I used this liner. Every time I used it, it burned. At first I thought that was normal because I had never used liquid liner before. Um, not normal. Also, for me, the hard little nub applicator is too difficult to use. I prefer a more brush like applicator.

However, if you don't have sensitive eyes, there were some things I did like. It is quite long wearing and doesn't smudge easily. It's very intense. If you make a mistake, it is easily corrected with water.

It's been awhile since I've used liquid eyeliner so maybe that's why I was less than impressed with this one. I don't like the felt tip, and found it very hard to apply a smooth line. I have sensitive skin and I felt like this tugged at it. The next liquid eyeliner I buy will have a brush.

What I like about his eyeliner is the fine point applicator and how it glides on easily. Before I apply this product, I apply a powder on my eyelids to keep it from smearing. It pretty much lasts me the whole entire day - touching up maybe only once if any. I would definitely recommend and do plan on purchasing again.

This glides on very nicely and stays put without smudging. The brush is easy to control and a little thicker than I think most people would like, but definitely manageable. It did start to fray pretty soon after I got this product, though, making it difficult if not impossible to get a clean line. Pigment-wise, it's great. The color is a deep, rich black. The product also comes off really easily just with water, and so was great for drawing stars on my two-year-old niece's hand during playtime. :)

Personal caveat: I feel a burning/stinging sensation on my lashline where I have applied this, though it goes away soon. It seems like I'm the exception in terms of this irritation, but I guess this product is not for me! :P

This product got great reviews on total beauty so I decided to try it. Unfortunately this didn't work for me. First I cannot draw a steady line with the applicator, but this may just be my lack of practice. The product didn't go on smoothly either. I would have to go over some spots because it was lighter. This product didn't last all day either. It started flaking at the end of the day. The only good thing I can say about this product is that it was pretty pigmented for the price.

I bought this because I heard it was comparable to Revlon's Colorstay Liquid Eyeliner; it's not. It may work for others, but not for my asian lids, it does not stay put. It smudges on me and transfer to the top of my eyelid. The applicator's super stiff and it stings my eyes sometimes. It's a great black color, but nothing special.

This liquid eyeliner did not work for me. I really didn't like the applicator, it is too stiff and hard to be used on the delicate skin around my eyes. So much for a felt-tip applicator.

Great! I just started wearing liquid eyeliner and with this tip it was very easily to just glide it on. I have'nt tried any other liquid eyeliners but i do recommend this to beginners because it really helped me. It comes of easily and sometimes if i mess up i just take a Q-Tip and dab it where i messed up, and it will come off.
