ok, maybe this was my fault, but when i bought this, i twisted it and tried to twist it back in, but it didnt go back, so i used my finger to try to push it back in and it just crumbled up. so after i cleaned it up and actually used it, it still did not impress me. it was too thick and soft to make precise and thinner lines, but it lasted all day even though i got it in a metallic color (made of steel). not worth the price $7 something @ target. will be returning it
I will buy this again.
I am impressed and SHOCKED. I usually find myself sad and
disappointed with Mabelline products. I do like their mascaras but
I rarely venture into the eyeline world.
This was pretty cool! I love the color. Vibrant Violet looks perfect
with my hazel eyes. I am truly happy I got this. It lasts for about
6 -8 hours. A touch up is needed for a long work day. It does not
make a flawless line. For those looking for a perfect line, not sure.
I tend to smudge my eyeliner to give a subtle smoking effect.
I did not use this for waterline but I imagine with the staying power
it might be okay for that. Goes on smooth, not tugging, almost
a soft gentle feel when putting this on. Impressed beyond belief.
I keep checking to see if this is a Sephora, Mac or Dior product.
Good Job Mabelline. You made a pretty cool product.
I believe this is meant for Waterline as the image on the ad at
the drug store showed water line.
Definitely will buy this again. Looking into the other fun colors out
I bought this in black, dark blue, green, and the purple color. So yes, i would buy again. I love this and i wear eyeliner everyday. Its a very precise line and the colors are awesome. I have dark green eyes and the sapphire blue color always gets me compliments. The green is my least favourite actually, the color is not so strong or complimentary on my eyes. I am Middle Eastern and we love our eyeliners. This eyeliner and the L'Oreal extra-intense eyeliner pencil (also reviewed) are my favourite pencil liners. I have tried UD zero many other high end ones, actual kohl and many others. They don't compare for me. I do not have oily eyelids though, i think for someone who does, these might be a problem -they are very dark and creamy. Only problem is, there is little product, I feel like with every twist I am almost done. I do not mind the twist function itself for sharpening, its just the amount of product. I love them though.
I bought this in Coal Commander. I love the colour and how how soft and creamy this eyeliner is. BUT the twisty dispenser sucks, it keeps getting stuck like others have mentioned, it also does not come with a sharpener so it makes application really difficult after the first 2/3 uses. It also transfers way too easily and then is impossible to remove. Don't waste your money.
$6.49 at Target as of 12/8/11
Applies super smooth, excellent texture on my waterline. Only had it on for a little while, but it doesn't look like it's going anywhere anytime soon. Very pleased so far.
Was not too impressed. Just bought it because I had a big savings coupon at one of my drugstores and figured "Why not?"
I got Bold Brown because black is very dark for me. I thought this would be a deeper color but it is really a medium brown with some reddish tints, and not matte but has some gold sparkle in it. My other eyeliner (Prestige Total Intensity( has sparkle in it too but it is dark while here it looks coppery since the liner is lighter and reddish.
Someone had tried it on me before over eyeshadow and it looked good so maybe it just doesn't look as good when worn alone, TBF.
My biggest complaint is that there is SO LITTLE product in the stick, I used it once and I feel like it will be finished in a few days. It is automatic and cannot sharpen so you have to be really slow and careful and have a good hand otherwise it will be very hard to get a line that is thin enough. It ended up way too thick on my upper lashline and hard to control.
It may have good lasting power, but the brown is too light and reddish tinted for my liking, plus the lack of product and tip suck. Way too expensive.
I have heard a lot of buzz about this new eyeliner from Maybelline so I caved and jumped on the bandwagon as I needed new liners. I purchased Bold Brown, Coal Commander and Vibrant Violet. I'm quite impressed with the formula of the liner as it's soft, creamy, pigmented, and really stays put all day. What really got my goat is all three were poorly packaged. It took forever and quite a bit of fussing around to get the product to twist up every time, but reading other reviews I don't seem to be alone. Seriously Maybelline you can't design a proper and functional twist up dispenser? I won't be repurchasing this item because the twist up packaging sucks and is extremely flustering when all I want to do is put on some simple liner.
The very first time i used it i was extremely happy with how smooth it went on, and it stayed pretty vell. As I started to use it more though,It stayed on for about the first hour, but by the time I had a few minutes to touch up, it had already smuged all under my eyes giving me the"raccoon" look. Not happy with it overall, and would not buy again.
I have this liner in Bold Brown and Vibrant Violet and I love them both. They wear for a super long time and don't budge. These wear longer than most pencil liners on your water line but they will wear off within 3-4 hours. I like the fact that these are retracable so I don't have to sharpen them but both of my liners retractable "feature" does not work. But other than that I really like these eyeliners, I olnt paid about $6-$8 for each of them and they work great. There are super pigmented and one of my favourite pencil eyeliners! Thanks for reading and I hope this helps!
I use black liners often, not daily, and I am always searching for one that won't budge or transfer on my eyes. I have hooded eyelids which makes liners transfer and smudge even if they claim not to. I also like very very thin lines, which suits my eyelids. Liquid liners work best for all of my needs but it takes longer and does not really get into the lashline enough for my taste. This liner is really good, but still not the best for my eyes. It is very soft, not as soft as Milani which made it difficult for me to make thin lines, and very black. It seems to last very long, and depending on the day, does not transfer much. However, if I am wearing under eye concealer, it transfers ALOT. That's its biggest con to me, but I would definitely repurchase it because it is high quality and would probably work even better for most.
