I'm kind of cheap with eyeliners especially liquid liners because I only wear them when going out to a fancy place. But, I'm tired of picking up duds that smear and smudge so I decided to spend more time in researching for a nice one. So, there I was walking around Ulta testing out liquid liners on my hand. I think I spent and hour testing different brands. I would pick a liner and draw a line. Let it sit for a few seconds then walk over to the Ulta supply and mirror stations and drench it with brush cleaner. I would take a tissue and try to wipe it off. Out of all the testable brands that Ulta offers, Stila came out as the winner. Even after wiping the sample off with brush cleaner, I was still left with a light line that didn't come off until I did a regular hand washing and light scrubbing at home. I also love how pigmented the black is and I love how easy it is to draw lines. For $20, I feel it is worth every cent!
This is possibly the best eyeliner I have used. It is the first liquid liner I have ever purchased.
- So pigmented
- VERY waterproof
- Stays on all day; they really weren't joking
- Applicator is easy to use
- Packaging ensures that the lid doesn't fall off in the makeup bag (I think that may only be a problem for me)
- Very good for beginners - application is very easy
- Although some may say price is a con, it really is worth it. I live in Australia, and it costs $31. However, I will continue to repurchase.
- Stays on so well, mistakes are difficult to correct
When I first got this eyeliner after reading the reviews, I was really impressed with how black it turned out to be. I didn't like how glossy it turned out, but everything else was great so I didn't bother returning it. Now when I do my wing for my cat eye, I like to pull the felt tip and after around 3 months, the felt tip started to get flimsy and it started drying out after that time.
A fantastic product, possibly the best eyeliner I have ever used. I bought the sparkle version in grey and it looks beautiful, lasts all day and all night and the price is excellent.
I love the how easy it is to apply this eyeliner and the staying power is great, but I find it's to glossy for me and not as matte as I like it to be.
I really like this eyeliner because it allows you to control how thin or thick you want your line to be. I've been using this nearly everyday for months and it hasn't irritated my eyes. It seems to dry quickly (which is good to stay in place!) but it has smudged before, usually after 12+ hours of wearing it. And if you're looking for waterproof eyeliner, this isn't the best product. Since I'm not concerned with that, I wouldn't mind purchasing this eyeliner again. As for the packaging, it's great. The cap fits tightly to prevent accidents (I've dropped it before and thankfully it hasn't broken or opened). But because the cap is tight, you can't place it on the other end as you apply. That's not all too convenient. Still would recommend this eyeliner though!
I love this eyeliner! I just bough it three or four days ago and have since used it several times. I have always had liquid eyeliner that would "chunk" off or flake off, and it definitely was not durable. This eyeliner stays put and does not flake off at all! It is easy to apply and I love that the felt tip is slightly flexible because it is so much easier to use than a stiff felt tip.
The only downside to this product is that it really isn't very waterproof at all. I was not looking for waterproof, so it suits me perfectly. But for someone that is really looking for a waterproof liquid liner, this would not be my top recommendation.
This is my HG eyeliner. Don't know what i did without it before?!!
I have oily, hooded lids - yep, the worst kind - and this liner is my saviour. I even put it at No 1 on my blog's favourites list (bigbrighteyes.co.uk) because I want other people with hooded eyelids to know about it. For Â£13 it is also excellent value, my current liner has lasted a year and is still going strong
This is a great liquid eyeliner pen, especially to create a cat eye. This holds up all day, no cracking, smearing, easy to use (glides effortlessly) so you will maintain control of the pen, and great color selections. I have this in intense black & it truly is an intense black. I work in Sephora, & customers are always asking me what eyeliner I use when I wear this. I would definitely reccommend & I will continue to buy this.
I use this in black, and the colour is actually black - not some dull colour or even a very toned down grey. The felt tip pen isn't too stiff nor too flimsy which makes it easy to use and have a good sense of control with. It stays on all day even without a primer, though I can guarantee you that it IS waterproof and won't rub off IF you use an eyelid primer. Through tears and rain, this is one of my best friends and keeps my eyes looking wonderful.
