The only liquid liner I use. If I had known about this I would never have bought Lancome's Artliner. It's the same thing, but the Carbon Black is even darker than Artliner in Noir. I've been buying Artliner for a long time because of the ease of the felt tip. When I read up about L'Oreal's product, it seemed like the same thing (which is a common phenomenon). After using this, I see no better quality in the Lancome product. This lasts just as well and the only differences seem to be a different shaped tube and money saved.
I like everything except for the most important thing - the colour. Look, the application is perfect, and so as the formula, in the sense that it is smudge-proof and waterproof. But the black colour is simply not intense enough. It is just not black enough for my taste. So I will keep on my search for the best black liquid eyeliner.
the best liner ever, i mean you can't screw up with this. totally worth the money=)
when it comes to drug store brands liners this is best eyeliner out there i love how the color is very rich stay on until you wipe it off its easy to wing out and i believe im on the 8th packing now.
This was my first liquid eyeliner. I saw that it was good for beginners because of the easy applicator so I decided to give it a try. However, the liner is incredibly flaky. Seconds after I apply the liner, I can see it flaking. While it does not smudge for me, it does not stay either. If I touch it or use a Q-tip to fix any stray marks, it rubs off really easily. I will not repurchase again.
This is definitely one of my go-to liquid eyeliners. (Though I must point out Iím not the best at applying eyeliner. I canít just draw a line in one swoop. I donít know how you awesome people do it; you probably have awesome hand-eye coordination. OkÖbut I digress!) So this product retails for $7.99 USD (at my local CVS). This eyeliner has a felt tip which is thin at the tip and it gradually thickens. I highly recommend using felt-tip eyeliners as they are more forgiving when lining your eyes. The cap is long enough for you to hold it like a pencil. Do shake this product, as you can hear the agitator clicking, before using. As for the felt tip I would say it's thicker than the Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eyeliner. So, some might find this tip too thick to draw a thin line. I don't have a problem with it. If you have trouble drawing a thin line, I can only recommend using a lighter hand and placing the eyeliner perpendicular your eyelid. The color ĎCarbon Blackí is an opaque black. The consistency of the eyeliner is wet, so do give several more seconds for it to dry. During application I noticed itís a bit glossy during application. The gloss will mute a bit when itís completely dry. It seemed like an issue for some. However, this product also claims to have an 8-hour staying power and I completely agree. I do think this is a great dupe for Lancomeís Artliner which costs $29.00 USD! Also this product isnít waterproof. Though with that said, removal is super easy! You can easily remove this eyeliner with makeup wipes alone sans eye makeup remover. And on a final note, this product comes in four colors: Carbon Black, Black Mica (soften Black color), Earthen Rock Brown, and Mineral Grey.
This is my HG liquid eyeliner! I love the color (rich dark matte black) and the shape of the pen really makes the eyeliner easy to apply. I do a winged eyeliner look pretty much everyday of the week and I've tried tons of other liquid eyeliners and this one just goes on so easily and the pen is very easy to control. It stays put all day long, doesn't smudge and it's easy to take off too! (no waterproof eye makeup remover needed!)
This wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either.
The tip was pretty precise, but I had some difficulty creating my usual cat eye look with it. It lasted pretty well for a waterproof liner, and washed off easily. Sometimes it came out a bit heavy or too fluid for my taste, but that happens.
However, when compared to my usual liner, Maybelline Line Stiletto, it just wasn't as good. It was nowhere near as pigmented as I wanted (kind of a weak grey), and I found it sometimes tended to smear before it dried--a problem I had never had with the Maybelline one.
I've used several different liquid eyeliners from low to high end. Overall I like the felt tip for it's flexibility, however I have to re-dip several times while applying to one eye. It seems to dry out fast.
I have mixed reviews for this eyeliner. My sister bought one a while ago and I fell absolutely in love with it. It was easy to apply and the felt tip was easy to work with. However, after it ran out, I went to the drugstore to pick another one up. But the second one I got it was really watery and not pigmented like the first. Disappointing. So now, I am back on my hunt for the perfect liquid liner!
- Easy to apply
- Dries fast
- Hard to draw thin lines
- Dries to a shiny finish
- Tends to flake off during the day
- Not pigmented, need to go over line a few times
