This eyeliner is amazing, once you get the feel for the felt tip, you can easily control it and get the lines you want, and they stay all day without much re-applying. although it can take awhile to dry, once its on, it stays put. perfect for winged-looks and cat eyes, but once in awhile it can make a line on the top of my lid but thats just because the shape of my eye...no fixing that /: All in all, a great liner that does the job!
This is a great liquid eyeliner. The applicator is just the right size, and is firm enough to create a stunning look easily. At first it is hard to manage, but that problem is gone once you get used to the product. The colour is intense and dramatic. The packaging is lovely. There doesn't seem to be much in the small bottle, but it last for ages. However, it seems to become quite watery over time, and the colour fades sometimes. Still, perfect eyeliner.
HG liquid eyeliner, i alternate between this and physicians formula cream liners, depends on what kind of look i'm going for. i've only tried three liquid eyeliners but a huge variety of pencil and gel but i always come back to this. Nothing else is as dark, plus i have great control with this. It lasts a long time and packaging isn't horrible. Its small so i always knock it over but thats just me being clumsy.I don't find any faults but my sister says it stings when she fixes her eyeliner with water and then reapplies, so maybe not for sensitive lids. I'd buy again :)
This is my number one favorite eye liner!!! i use it almost every day. its perfect to do cat eyes with. Thats mainly why i got it. the point makes easy application, and lasts, and lasts, and lasts. its not waterproof though. i dont recommmend going to a pool party with this on. Overall an awesome eyeliner. Would repurchase this again.
I love this stuff! So black and the brush is so perfect and skinny. Doesn't smudge(except when still wet, which is good when you mess up).
I bought this once because I heard so many good reviews on it. It wasn't long lasting at all. After an hour or so of driving, it started to smear onto my lids and I haven't used it since. I prefer gel eyeliner to anything else.
I used this about three years ago and wondered why I stopped when I recently picked it up again. Then I remembered. Like many of the reviews below me, this eyeliner is not meant for oily lids. Close to the end of my work day, it smudges all over my lids and sometimes transfers down to my bottom lashes, leaving me with raccoon eyes. The black is a nice matte, but it cracks on me in the middle of the day.
I think this is best for people who have dry lids.
This eyeliner gives a very matte finish, but does crack a bit after drying so I recommend waiting for it to dry at first and then doing another even coat. It stays a LONG time so make sure you correct any mistakes right away.
Problem with this for me is that it burns the heck out of my lid. I didn't think this was a big deal at first since it just burnt for about a minute and then seemed okay, but later at night when I was removing it, I got some in my eye. Oh my god I think it would've been less painful to pour liquid soap into my eye. :( So I won't be using it again but I thought I'd let you guys know - if it burns at first, be super careful removing it!!!
Please keep in mind that results vary depending on how you use it, skin type and location.
I like this product. It is a reasonable price and once it dries it stays where I put it. It's important to let it dry! I use a waterproof pencil liner on my upper eyelids and this on the bottom. I have been caught in the rain and gone to the pool with it on. I don't know that it is necessarily better than other brands but it is a decent price and easy/convenient to find.
This stuff is so bad words escape me. I used this years ago, way before Makeup Alley come into my life. I have very oily skin and eyeliners always smear on me. I used to wander the drugstores, searching for ANYTHING long wearing and smudeproof. This said "Colorstay" on it. I took that to mean it did not smear or smudge. I used to use this and I always wondered why I looked like Rocky Raccoon.
Fast forward to today. Now I read Makeup Alley. Now I know what to buy. Now I use that L’Oreal waterproof one with the blue cap. Darn, I always forget the name but I know it when I see it in the stores. That stuff really IS smudge proof and waterproof. One day recently I saw Colorstay in the store and thought I would give it another try, for old times sake...you know...kind of like when you remarry your ex-husband during a boozy Las Vegas weekend. You can't remember exactly WHY you divorced that sexy, good looking rascal in the first place, but you suddenly remember EXACTLY why once you are good and sober.
You have your "AH HA" moment when the skies part and your head is now full of wisdom. . That is exactly what I had with this product.
Now I remember why we got divorced in the first place.
SMEAR CITY PEOPLE!
To be used by oily skinned people only if they enjoy looking like they have not slept in three weeks.
For reference, I used the waterproof version of this product. It still smears and smudges.
