DOES NOT SMUDGE!!! holy crap i am impressed with this eye liner. i have extremely oily lids and nothing has gone on without some bit of smudging or transferring and giving me raccoon eyes. this stuff goes on and stays on. I wore for about 3 hours in which i talk my dog on a 1 hour walk, then continued to give her a bath, do laundry and wash dishes. look perfect. not only that, but even the swipe i did on my hand stayed on through bathing my dog!! I haven't tried it on my lower lash line yet so i'll come back to update on that. i also love the packaging. all other liquid liners i've tried are bottles in which you have a "wand" to apply. this liner i can toss in my purse and take it on the go very easily. it looks like a pretty silver pen. my only gripe (not even a gripe) is that the tip is so thin and precise that it takes a few swiped to build up a thicker line at the outer corner of my eye. oh, i got this in Ultra Black and it is indeed, ultra black. if you have oily lids, do yourself and get this liner!
*UPDATE* wore this yesterday to work. did a full cat eye, lined my waterline, and after 7 hours of rigorous work. no smudging, no raccoon eyes. my waterline did fade, but there was no smudging or smearing. the line on my top lid stayed put and looked like perfection at the end of the day. this is definitely my new HG liquid liner
**BTW- I got mine at Ulta. There it was $10.99 but I applied the $3.50 off $10 coupon and ended up getting this for $8.
I really wanted to love this eye booster eyeliner + serum. For me, it was just alright. I did have to go over my line a few times to get it as opaque as I wanted it to be. What is nice about it though is, when it is on and dries... it stays on. No smudging and no flaking. As for the eye boosting part/serum? I feel like it did not do anything to enhance my lashes (and I used it for about 3 weeks with my make up and alone).
Honestly, would I be repurchasing this product again? Maybe if it's on sale. I feel like it is slightly overprice for a product that is just alright.
Overall Rating: 5/5
If you love the look of precise, perfect, polished eyeliner, you need this. This eyeliner is phenomenal. I have always been searching for the perfect liquid eyeliner. Something that would not fade, something that was easy to use, something that I could make perfect winged eyeliner with. This is that!
PACKAGING: It is a silver pen-like eyeliner, except the end is NOT a felt tip. It is flexible. It is more like a very thin, precise paintbrush
FORMULA: It is a little watery, but not to the point where it is getting all over the place. Its just the perfect inbetween of watery and thick.
SHADE: I got this in "Ultra Black", because I heard all the other colors were not as pigmented. But ultra black is very black!
FINISH: This is not a matte eyeliner, it does have a bit of a sheen to it, which I dont mind. If you are the kind of person who likes super matte looking eyeliner, this may not be for you.
LASTING POWER: This does not budge. I have worn this for 12 hours and it never fades, or creases or smudges. Yay!
EASE OF USE: It used to take me so long to do winged eyeliner, because It was so easy to mess up with other eyeliners. This performs so well with such ease. It takes me about 20 seconds to do each eye.
PRICE: I got mine at walmart for $11
WOULD I BUY AGAIN: YES
FINAL VERDICT: HG eyeliner!
WOW! I was a huge fan of cream liners (Smashbox Jet Set and MUFE Aqua Black) however, I decided to start using a liquid liner again and wow, am I ever glad I did. What I love most about this is the applicator, it is a marker style that gives a fine or bold line. The formula stays on and also my lashes were longer and stronger looking in 3 weeks! I'm not sure what the ingredient is, but it works and for the price, why not give it a try. I used to use Talika and Tarte lash serums and this does the same thing for me and it's in 1 step! Will repurchase again and again because I'm scared that my lashes will go back to normal!
I have been experiencing eyelash loss lately due to certain mascara's and especially due in part to tightlining my upper lashes with a gel eyeliner. My eyelashes have been falling out in clumps!!! Arrgg! Like I can afford to lose any lashes - LOL!!! Well, my solution has been to switch to Physician's Formula Lash Boosting Organic Mascara and Eye Booster Eyeliner + Serum and NOT tightline my upper lashes. There's been a lot of hype over lash boosting products lately and I'm not so sure I believe that either product will actually cause my lashes to grow, however, if I do get a boost then all the more better! I must say that I love this eyeliner. It's very easy to use and I get a precise line every time. It's also very black. As far as the product claim to last 24 hours, I can personally vouch that it does indeed stay on for 24 hours. I slept in it one night and sure enough the next morning I still had a precise line. I do wash my makeup off every night before bed, but I decided to line just one eye to see how the product held up and it sure did! It's a bit pricey for an DS eyeliner, but I don't mind shelling out a couple more dollars for a product that performs well.
So, I love this eyeliner. I got Ultra Black and let me tell you something, it is pigmented. One swipe of this and my eyeliner was perfect. And, better yet, it lasted all day with no smudging! This is practically a miracle for me, considering I tend to rub my eyes. I was wearing this almost eyeliner every day. Then one day, I left the cap loose. It didn't work after that - it was like there was no eyeliner left in it. I tried writing with it on my hand, running hot water over it, everything. But no eyeliner would come out. I think that it's because of the odd built-in brush it has, maybe the eyeliner dried up in the bristles and are blocking anything from coming out. I don't know. Because I love it so much, I will be buying it again and trying to not let it dry out this time.
this eyeliner dries quickly and does not smudge. I love the packaging, slim, chic and mess-free. so easy to use. However, the color is not as intense as I hoped for an eyeliner, and it does flake a little bit at the end of the day. One thing you can do is to pop it into your purse and do a little touch up when necessary.
Packaging: A slim, lightweight, metal tube with a brush tip. I love how secure the cap is. I hate nothing more than a product opening up in my bag and making a mess everywhere. Lol.
Consistency: It leans towards the runnier side, but it's not runny enough to make a difference in the ease of application (which is pretty darn easy btw).
Color: I got mine in black and it's not as opaque as i'd like it to be. I have to go over it around 2-3 times to get a nice, solid black color.
Lasting power: Lasts all day on me. If you touch it a lot though, it will rub off. Also, it washes off easily with warm water and soap.
Finish: Matte finish. No shininess.
Price: Around $11. Not bad for a two-in-one product.
Final thoughts: This product is extremely easy to use and the brush tip isn't flimsy at all. My only gripe would be the opacity of the product. I hate having to go over it to darken the color, because I think it's a waste of product and time. Now for the lash boosting serum... I didn't really pay attention to the before and after, because that's not why I bought the product, however I did notice that my lashes looked thicker and slightly longer. But it's not an outstanding or extremely noticeable difference.
Yay/nay?: Yay! :)
This is a fantastic eyeliner. I am currently using the brown one (since I don't always want a harsh line) and I have already purchased the ultra black one already. A lot of eyeliners smudge on me but this one doesn't at all After 15 hours, it's still there! The applicator makes it very easy to draw the eyeline precisely. I love it.
I never thought I would use liquid liner, but here I am. The pen packaging is sleek and functional, the brush tip is precise and easy to control, and the formula doesn't flake or smudge at all, while being easy to remove. It's not the blackest of formulas, but the 'ultra black' shade is a decent enough black. If you buy it in 'black', you'll end up with something that's more charcoal. I haven't noticed any lash lengthening, but I love this enough that it doesn't matter. HG status.
