This is the best pencil eyeliner for my waterline, but I'm not saying that ecstaticly... I think I'm giving up trying to find an eyeliner that sticks to the waterline. *defeated sigh*
However, this is a very quality product... Better than my Mac Powerpoint. I would say their staying power is about the same (perhaps 24/7 is better) but what lets Urban Decay take the winnings is the pencils utter creamieness. I never thought I'd find a pencil so slick and creamy like this! I'm begining to really like Urban Decay, I believe.
Regardless of it not staying on my waterline forever (I'd say it drifts away within an hour) I will repurchase because it is the best eyeliner pencil I've ever tried.
Best companion to liner addicts! If I don't use liquid eyeliner, I have to use UD Zero. The pigment is intense, one stroke and it's done. The texture is light and velvet. It is definitely glide-on as promised and lasts well. No need to reapply or wipe off the raccoon blur mid-day. Very happy I found this. Better than other high-end brands I have tried at twice the price. My search is over, this is definitely a winner. EDITED: I went on a vacation where daily heat and humidity are inevitable...and sadly, UD Zero just melt on me mid-day. I guess it worked only in cooler climate. I ran out and tried a whole bunch of other liners and ended up with Bobbi Brown gel liner in Granite (less severe than black but still elegant). I tested it one day befor going back to buy it. Still, I love using pencil when I can, just more practical.
I love it. Hardly ever bleeds. Stays put for hours on end, even in hot sweaty clubs.
But as others have said, leave to dry before putting anything on top.
Hmmm my review of this product is simple.
I have NO eyelashes on my top lids. This stays on them all day and only bleeds a tiny bit. It's best to let it dry first before blinking or anything but it is a really good pencil and allows you time to smudge it before it dries too. Just follow the directions. Don't apply it too heavily because of course it will bleed. Just apply lightly - extra pigment = less product used.
I'm madly in love with this eyeliner, and I think my (now ex) best friend was too because it dissapeared a long with a few other of my products but I can see why. :P I work in the very humid New Orleans french quarter and the eyeliner stays ALL DAY with minimal bleeding. It's in fact so good that I almost have problems getting it off at night (thank god for Lush's Ultrabland.) The application is smooth, the black is very deep, rich and creamy. Just make sure that when you apply it, you give it a minute or two to dry so that it can set before you mess with anything else.
I would definitely buy again, I have another on it's way to me in the mail now.
I have such problems with eyeliners smudging on my lower lashline. From high end to low end and the 24/7 pencils have gotten such incredible reviews. I got one as a Christmas gift. I was impressed with the easy of application and how incredibly black this liner is. However it just does not stay on my rims or below my lashline. It wears out at the corners first and then it is all downhill after that. My Revlon Colorstay and Styli-Style black pencils stay longer than this. I hate to part with it due to how deep and dark black it is : - (
Love this eyeliner. Applies very easily, stays on and looks like a fluid, also the black is VERY black. Stays put on the waterline as well. I repeatedly come back to this eyeliner. I usually use Lancome's Artliner, but they are so expensive and run out way too fast.
I wasn't impressed with this...It's not worth the hype IMO. It's TOO soft. So soft that I can't get a nice, even line. It also smudges and doesn't last any longer than any other mediocre pencil. I reach for much cheaper pencils over this one. It's not bad...just okay. Not worth the $$.
I was really disappointed with this. I wanted to use it for my water line (for tightlining) but it smears and smudges.
HG! lasts all day, doesn't tug at delicate eye area. rich black color and so EASY TO APPLY. makes every other eyeliner I've tried seem like garbage. even stays put on my lower lash line. A MUST BUY! I've found that this formula is perfect for the waterline.
EDIT- this is still my HG for the waterline. There is some transfer to my upper lids however. This combined with MUFE Aqua Eyes is my perfect e/l combo.
