I hate this so much. It's very irritating. It made my eyes water, and the eyeliner was running both down below my eyes and into my eyes. Luckily, I didn't wear it on a work day so I was able to get home and remove it after about 6 hours of wear. When I removed it, it came off in flakes all over the tissue. It is dark black, because it goes on really heavy.
This would be my holy grail if it didn't sting so much. I use this on my waterline and the color is the darkest black I've ever used, out of the dozens of other eyeliners I've used. the product is so amazingly smooth, it feels like butter when putting it on! however, it dries to a perfect smudge-proof finish (on your lid).
again, it stings and makes my eyes water when i use it on my waterline, and this has never happened to me with other pencils. but, for the great price and color, i will keep buying it until i find something that doesn't sting.
I have really oily, hooded eyelids and I've tried many drugstore brands and they would all smudge on me, despite setting with powder and priming. Prestige was my last attempt and it STAYED ON!! It was amazing. These are highly, highly pigmented, they're creamy and go on very smooth. The only con is that I wish it was a twist up pencil, but this is a minor detail compared to how it works. HG!! For all you Canadians, Prestige is available at Rexall.
I was dissapointed. The good, it is very smooth, deep intense black color, easily glides when applying and it lasts without smudging for the couple of hours I wore it, before having to remove. It made my eyes red, and watery, I guess I am allergic to this. It bothered my eyes so badly.It was a nightmare to remove. So because of this I can't use it or recomend it, no matter how nicely it applies, if you can't weat it.
Very nice product! Highly pigmented and smooth to apply! HG material... This eyeliner is my go to eyeliner when i'm lazy to apply liquid eyeliner. It stays put all day long although it occasionally smudges on my lower eye area after a couple of hours, however, i live in a very hot country so i guess it's because of the heat..
Damn.. And i had thought id just found my HG eyeliner and this amazing thing pops up.
This.. Perfect. Not OD fancy like the other liner i bought (L'oreal Infallible) but. It goes on EVEN DARKER and WILL. NOT. SMUDGE. At first it goes on so creamy, then when you let it dry it stays all day. Its cheaper than the other liner too. I feel so conflicted T_T i love this stuff. Go try it NOW.
check my profile for pictures of the prestige TI in deepest black, intense blue, and intense olive, going head to head with milani liqui'fye in black, brown, and aqua--and totally WINNING. I have the proof. i took pictures of each eyeliner on my hand at three different stages: initial application, about four hours later, after which i'd washed my face and hands several times, and several hours after that, when i'd been pressing MAC pigments all day. pressing pigments requires the use of rubbing alcohol, if you're not familiar, and TI was still there (it showed wear and and tear, but it hung tight,) while the milani was long gone. the only eyeliner i have not tried that MAY be better than the TI is GOSH velvet touch (a UK/canadian brand.) honestly, guys, if you live in the US and need a black pencil liner that stays, i've tried them all, and this your winner.
ps my camera is broken, and i'm still rocking an iphone 3g, so i'm sorry the photo quality sucks.
I can easily name 20 brands of waterproof black eyeliner I have used--just brands. Among these brands I have used gels, liquids, pencils, angle brushes in shadow (also angle brushes in eye drops...), searching for my HG. Like monty python, I FOUND MY HOLY GRAIL! TI deepest black=divine.
I have to wear glasses in allergy season and can only use blinc mascara and because my eyes are so watery. But the TI is chuck Norris to teary eyes, remaining perfectly black and smudge-proof for hours. Step aside MUFE. You've been replaced. (UD 24/7, you were never in the running.)
UPDATE: for anyone who has issues with sharpening this pencil, i feel you. i ruined one before i realized that it takes a special sharpener to sharpen a special pencil. prestige makes a dual-ended metal sharpener for about $3-4 that is very nice, and l'oreal has a micro-pencil sharpener that is good as well. i thieved a chanel sharpener from my mum that is perfect, but the above 2 options are the best ds options i've found. refrigeration also helps! and never, ever leave it in your car...it will melt, and you will be very sad.
I have no idea why people fav this product so high. well, the consistency is very smooth and creamy and it's very smudgeproof. but for who have very watery eyes like me won't be able to use this eyeliner at all. It's not waterproof i guess since I have very watery eyes and only after two hours my eyeliner got smeared off. very very bad and im kind of disappointed at it. but for those who dont have this problem, you might give it a try.
This is the BEST drug store eyeliner ive ever purchased. I purchased it at Rite Aid for about $6..i think?
the consistency is more creamier than other eyeliners ive used so it goes on VERY smooth. I got the black colored one, and it is a TRUE BLACK, goes on very dark, doesnt have weird ligther undertones when you go out in the sun.
i use this to line underneath my waterline and smudge it a little bit towards the outer corner of my eyes and it stays ALL day. I hardly need touch up with this eyeliner. I also use it ON my waterline and it has the same staying power for me.
The only con about this product is that i need to sharpen it constantly..im not sure if i just apply my eyeliner to hard sometimes..but it flattens out pretty quickly. Other than that I will purchase again!
I bought this eyeliner because of the positive reviews on this site. The color intensity is great and it glides on quite nicely. The staying power is also great but not as great as Mac Blacktrack. The biggest problem I have with this eyeliner is that it stings my eyes. I have never worn an eyeliner that stung my eyes so badly. I do have OTT extremely sensitive eyes so for those who do not have OTT sensitive eyes, this eyeliner is a great liner for the price.
