I love this eyeliner and I am surprised it is not more popular. I am not one of those talented ladies that can line their eyes, with ease. I never wore eyeliner until I reached my 30s because I simply did not know how to do it. Every single time I tried, I either make a sloppy line or it would just look crazy. I decided to get this eyeliner based on good reviews and because the local cvs was having a great deal on it. I love this eyeliner, it glides on with ease, the sharp tip is precise and is long lasting. The very black shade is very black, and I have really no other complaints about this product.
Closest to a HG eyeliner. This doesn't smudge for hours (maybe a little by the end of the day) which is hard for me to find because I have the type of eyelid where if I used a pencil liner it would smudge all over the place in 3 mins! I can only use liquid eyeliner for decent wear. This eyeliner felt tip makes it easy for me to draw a line and I've had this for almost a year and the tip still has not dried out yet. I didn't buy this for the lash growth claim so I can't say anything about that since i also don't wear make up every single day. Downside is that I wish this eyeliner was "blacker." I don't think it is black enough it's kinda a really dark grey to me. Maybe it's cause I had mine for a long time? I'm planning on trying their thicker marker eyeliner and hopefully the solution to my colour problem is just a new product.
Edit: Oh also I'll like to mention that I used this on my recent summer trip to Hong Kong and it did not smudge even in crazy humid weather. Because of that trip I ultimately decided this was the closest to an HG eyeliner for me
I have gone through so many eyeliners; crayons, liquid, gels, EVERYTHING to find the perfect one. I'm a big fan of most things Physicians Formulan so when I found this at my local Rite Aid 9 months ago I was stoked to try it.
I haven't bought another liner since. I have stocked up on these in case it's ever discontinued but I've only had to open up one. It lasts forever and goes on so smooth, not too watery and not too pasty. Honestly perfect.
I didnt care too much about the serum part of it until about my 2nd month of using it, I finally started to really noticed the changes. My lashes have gotten significantly longer since I've been using it, which I never expected to happen.
Recommended for the perfect cat eye, or just a precise fine liner.
I have had this in Ultra Black for about a year. I only wear makeup once or twice a wk, and almost everytime I do, I use this, and it has not dried up. It is one of the very few liners that does not smudge or flake on my greasy hooded Asian eyelids (small fold/crease that causes upper eyelid to touch the lashline). It has a glossy polish-like finish and does not budge until you take it off, but comes off easily w/ makeup remover. Out of all the liquid liners I have tried this is also the easiest to apply with it's super pointed brush tip that can draw super thin or thick. I don't use it often enough to comment on the serum, but makes me feel better thinking this won't make my eyelashes fall out. It is not the most pigmented eyeliner, but this is pretty close to HG for me.
UPDATE: I've had Ultra Black for years now and still love it! Recently started using Deep Brown for no-makeup makeup days and I love it too! It doesn't seem as long lasting as Ultra Black and definitely fades on the lower lashline, but it's good enough for me!
This is a great liquid liner that is very easy to use. It is pigmented and consistent in color (unlike some liquid-pen liners that can be very watery). It dries quickly and stays on till you take it off, but comes off very easily with a foaming cleanser. I find it comparable to Stila liner. The only complaint I have is that the brown shade is very dark and way more black than I would like. It is definitely one of the best liquid liners out there if you are looking for black or a very dark brown.
love this eyeliner so much! It's easy to create a winged eyeline (well, its my daily routine whenever i have makeup on) This eyeliner is long lasting, it never smudge on me,(I once had it on from 7am to 5pm, and its still looked the same!) I use ultra black, it can create a intense eyeliner look for me.
I have tried some higher ends eyeliners, such as MAC, Lancome, UD, and also the japanese one (dolly wink), i would say this eyeliner works out the best for me. I will keep using it! :D
for the serum, I did try it for few nights, dont really see much of a different. I honestly don't even care about the serum.
I purchased this when it was on sale/clearance at CVS. I did not wear liner on a daily basis but wanted something to quickly create fine lines to create the illusion on lashes but not necessarily create a "line" if that makes any sense. I have hooded eyelids so thicker lines do not suit me well. I did not have high hopes for it...don't know why I bought it then?? Anyways I did not care for it initially and forgot about it for a week. When I tried it later I started to LOVE it. That seems to happen a lot with me. It creates such natural thin lines. I can't speak for the serum aspect of it but I think most people don't care for those claims anyways. It is long wearing on me and it gets real close to my lashes so it really gives the illusion of lusher lashes. It seemed to dry on me one day when I put it over eyeshadow (I guess it sort of clogged it) but then it came back to life and works great. I will buy this full price if I had because I feel incomplete when I don't use it but I know there are always sales on PF so I will pick up more when that happens.
Well I must be one of the odd ducks out, because I would not repurchase this eyeliner. Having used it several times now over the last few weeks, I am unfortunately not impressed.
The pen design itself and the accuracy of the tip I did really like, but the formula was neither bold enough nor fade-resistant (contrary to what others claimed to experience, perhaps due to a defect in the one I purchased?). The color I purchased was "black," and after looking at pictures I wish "ultra black" had been available. But even if the color were darker, the line does smudge and fade on me throughout the night. It's not terribly uncommon for liners to smudge on me, with my old standby Clinique
potted cream liner being one of the few to not give me that problem. But this faded fast and nearly completely. Totally unacceptable.
Wish it had worked out since, again, I do really like the pen's design and fine tip. Being new to liquid liners, I found this by far the easiest one to use. Bummer that the formula couldn't be better.
My new favorite liquid eyeliner!!!! I am normally not a fan or liquid because i prefer gel or cream liner. But, this is soooo easy to get a clean line!
I just tried Physician's Formula felt tip eye marker eye liner and hated it so i was not so sure about trying this one, but it is completely the opposite of the other one.
It is in the pen or marker form so their is no dipping and redipping necessary, and I love the tip because it is flexible enough to move along the shape of your eye without being too flimsy.
I love that it is also a lash boosting serum because i need it!
I have it in the brown so i definitely want to try it in the black!
Also the cap it very amazing it will really keep the moisture inside so it wont dry out....
I thought this was my HG liquid e/l: the brush is firm and comes to a fine point, making application a pleasure.
It creates a lovely precise line, allows for great control.
HOWEVER, it dries out after about a week of use!
I bought another tube, plus the brown shade, hoping maybe my tube was just defective. Nope. They're both drying out after just a few uses.
In fact, they start drying out even during application. While adjusting the line, I'll notice nothing is coming off the brush. I test it on my hand, and sure enough, it's dry as a bone. I keep having to recap, shake, and smoosh the brush to coax the color out, and even that doesn't really work.
Such a shame because this was perfect for my small eyes in every other way.
Next on my list: NYX's super skinny eye marker which is perpetually out of stock at Ulta.
(BONUS: I notice my lashes are thicker since using this along with the clear serum that came free with one of the liners).
