EDIT: purchased 2 more times :)
before i read about this product on MUA, i used my MAC eyeliner. this one does a better job + is way cheaper.
pros: cheap cost, very smudge-resistant (ive worn it to bed), good color.
con: its an automatic pencil (aka the kinds that you twist to get more), but it comes with a "sharpener" that, instead of making the tip pointy, doesnt do anything. ill probably try using my own pencil sharpener to make the tip pointy.
I have been using this eyeliner for a couple years now. It has really great staying power, the line can be thick or really thin if you'd like. The end has a built in sharpener which I don't like too much, it seems to get stuck with liner. I have rec'd compliments on my liner and it has always worked well for me, so I recommend it!
I love eyeliner, and I have bought eyeliner from almost every brand.
This eyeliner is my HG it is absolutely amazing. I complimented a new lady at my work on her lovely eyeliner and asked what she used. She then told me about this product. Later that day I went and got some and then came LOVE! I love this product. This has so much staying power its amazing. It's bold when you want it to be and you can make it a light line as well. For me I like bold. This has the precision and the boldness of liquid eyeliner but smoothly goes on like a pencil. AMAZING.
I first bought this eyeliner three years ago and have since repurchased 4 times. I've strayed a few times and have always regretted it. High end brands like MAC or Chanel have nothing on this product! It's gives a intense black that is smudgable on first application, but is ultimately smudge and water proof. even after showering, I find if I don't rub my eye, my eyeliner still remains perfect, albeit slightly less intense in tone.
This is my HG eyeliner! The consistancy is amazing!! It smudges well and it stays put. The color is very dramatic black and I don't need to put on liquid eyeliner over it if I don't have enough time to. I've been using this stuff for 6 years and will obviously continue to repurchase over and over again!
Edit: Oh dear, this is another product fallen to the wrath of the mighty soft contact lens. It now makes my eyes sore and weepy, and sticks to my lenses. Cant' even wear it without lenses now. It was great until I got them. It's not suitable for contact lens wearers at all. Back to the drawing board.
Original: Well, damn, they don't sell this product in the UK, but I got me one off US eBay and it works a treat. I wear black eyeliner everytime I leave the house so I'm always on the lookout for good, reasonably priced eyeliners that last as long as humanly possible (and that are automatic, as I always get pencil shavings in my eyes with normal pencils). This is nice, thick, creamy and lasts ages and ages. It's so good I just ordered another 4 from the US for £12, which is a bargain compared to the other half-decent eyeliners I've used. Absolutely top stuff, new HG for me :D
It doesn“t last as i hoped. Nice color (it is very black) but it smudges a lot. I“ve tried others half cheaper and with better staying power.
i've tried almost all kinds of liners and other than the mac fluidliners and bobbi brown gel liners these don't smudge or budge. stay on me all day until i wash it off.. sometimes it wont even wash off so i have to use a makeup remover. classic color that goes w/ any and every eyeshadow colors...even on bare eyes. i even like these better the the mac fl and the bb gl because i have an easier time w/ a pencil where the fluidliners and gel liners are more difficult to get a hang of. these are ALOT cheaper too. i always find myself going back to these. hg material for me.
my HG eyeliner! i used to ALWAYS use chanel black eyeliner, but this works just the same on me but for half the price! i love it! and i always look for the buy one get one free sales at the drug stores. i stock up so i never run out! it even comes with a sharpener at the end of the pencil. how convenient!
i very rarely wear black eyeliner, so i didnt want to splurge on something more high-end. ive had luck with this eyeliner in vixen and brown, so i decided to try it in black. this is your basic black pencil liner with very good staying power. it comes with a sharpener at the bottom of the pencil, which is useful. i will definitely repurchase when i run out.
