Before I started using this eyeliner 3 or so years ago I used prestiges liquid liner. It was always sold out and when they jacked up the price from 3 to 8 I started to try other liquid liners. Revlon has been my hg. Its so easy to use, I always get a perfect line and it lasts forever. I use it everyday and it lasts like 4-6 months. Its very opaque not sheer at all. And one of the major reasons I love it is the brush.. Well its not really a brush its a rubber point which makes for easy application. If I wanted a brush look I would use a gel or cream liner.I have found that target and rite aid both sell this for around $5.
This is my all time favorite liquid eyeliner!
I have been using it for about 2 years now.
Since pencil doesnt last on my eyes.
I loove the thin tip, it applys so smoothly and drys really fast.
It doesnt smudge and lasts all day.
It stands out beautifly and I wear it everyday!
The price is totally worth it!
A product that falls in between amazing and poor in my makeup bag.
Bought this a while back and since I don't use my makeup too often, there is still quite a bit left in the bottle. Hmm, a great thing about this eyeliner is that it is highly pigmented. It dries easily as well (both a pro and a con) but it doesn't flake off if you apply another layer above the dried one.
If there's anything to complain about, it would be the tip. I've used eyeliner brushes shaped like a conventional lip brush and while I loved those, it was difficult to get color into my inner eye corners. I had expected to love Revlon's brush, what with the stiffer tip and all, but it ended up being too stiff for my liking. Made my eye itch if I poked at it even gently.
I might switch to a gel liner next. Revlon's Colorstay is a good product but I wouldn't repurchase.
Absolutely LOVE this eyeliner. I have been using it for years, and in between I have tried many others. But this one is just an awesome deal for the price. It goes on so smooth and the color is super pigmented, and it dries to a dark black, matte finish which I love. It doesnt look like cheap eyeliner that dries to a shiny black (Elf). Has good staying power and doesnt irritate my eye. Good job Revlon :)
I'll just start by saying that this is far from my favorite liquid liner, but for the price that you pay it's good. That being said, I do prefer Milani Eye Tech & TiGi Makeup Marker when I need an affordable liquid liner, but a lot more stores carry Revlon than TiGi or Milani, so I usully settle for this.
I don't get why a lot of people are saying that the pigmentation is poor. I personally find it to be great...A lovely rich, carbon black that's very opaque. I never have to go over it to get full color payoff like I have to with my Stila and Physicians Formula liquid liners.
And as far as the tip goes...A lot of people complain that it's too stiff, but I actually prefer a nice stiff tip to a flimsy one. I find that it makes application much easier. I remember the salesgirl at the drugstore saying that the tip hurt her eyes though, so I guess it just depends on the person.
The lasting power (on its own) is pretty average for a liquid liner. It's not poor, nor is it amazing. However, I usually layer this over a primer and set it with translucent powder, so it always lasts from dawn till dusk on me (despite my deep set, oily-lidded eyes).
Like I said, it's not the best liquid liner in the world, but it's good for the price and convenience. I continued >>
First off, this product is pretty expensive for the mediocre quality and the extremely small amount you receive. The applicator brush is stiff. That may be a good thing for some people but I wasn't a fan of the super stiff brush. Also, it the brush seemed to be a little rough so it would irritate my eyes a bit when I was applying this liner. The eyeliner is comparable to black watercolor. It's not bad if you line your eyes a a few times but just one time will result in black watercolor quality. This liner isn't as terrible as I'm describing it but it's not something I would purchase again. Especially because of the tiny amount of liner I got. Something that I liked about this eyeliner was the ease of removing it. When I wanted to remove it I just rubbed my eyes with warm water and it was gone. Again, it may be a bad thing in case you cry but I liked the ease of removal. Bottom line: Buy if it's on sale.
I used cream eyeliner for a year before switching to liquid. I've used other liquid one in the past but I do my liner pretty thick. This one did not work for how i wear it. When you apply the liner and have to go over it again it erases what you just did. It also didn't last all day for me. I would end up with one eye darker then the other or have opaque marks on my lid.
Excellent dark, black, opaque liquid eyeliner.
I usually use a gel eyeliner, but I use this when I don't have enough time to get out my brush and pot of eyeliner. This is able to provide a thick, dark, intense line, which is what I am looking for. No need to go over this a second time like you would with some liquid eyeliners that are too sheer/not black enough. This formula and applicator are very good.
However - one MAJOR complaint: this stuff is strong!! It burns my eyelid and sometimes even stings. It is definitely NOT safe for sensitive eyes or contact lens wearers. You need to be super careful that you don't let this get into your eye, because I imagine it would be painful. As I said, I use this only sometimes, and I don't think I would be able to use this daily. Sometimes my eyelids can be dry and flakey and they burn from moisturizer alone, and I would never ever let this stuff near my eyelids then.
But, I am going to keep it around as a backup product for when I don't have enough time to do my usual eyeliner, because I have been using eyeliners for years, and this is superior to any other liquid eyeliner you can get in the drugstore.
If anyone is having problems with the eyeliner looking too sheer, you are pressing too hard. You only need very light pressure, gently touching the applicator to your eyelid. This also helps prevent the applicator from wearing out.
The eyeliner does its job but it stings my eyelid and it takes extra effort to remove it. I got Intense Dark but it was not that dark
I don't like this eyeliner at all, I have the black version and I find it just isn't black enough. Another thing is the applicator, it's stiff and pointy and I find it impossible to get a sharp line, this becomes way more difficult after regular use because the applicator kind of fluffs up so you get these bits coming off it and that results in a very wobbly ugly looking line. Winged eyeliner is definitely out of the equation. I've tried to make this work a billion times and there hasn't been a single time where I had success. If you make mistakes and try to fix the outline of the liner, it will look worse because it comes off in this flaky manner so the edge of the line will just look flaky and nasty. On a positive note, I have had mine for a year and it hasn't dried up. It stays on longer than most eyeliners for me but it still leaves a grey cast and flakes - not good. This eyeliner wasn't exactly cheap either for a drugstore brand. I have started using Bobbi brown's long wear gel liner and that is by far the best I have used.
