I use this to line my waterline and while it does bleed to my lower waterline, the majority of it stays on the upper waterline and yes it does live up to it's name of being extra-intense! I wanted a black/brown eyeliner that had a lot of pigment and this was just what i was looking for. I really like L'oreal's eyeliners for the most part. For DS brand, I have always preferred thier eye cosmetics. I think they are closer to higher end than the rest are. This would be 5 lippies and HG status if it didn't bleed to my lower lashline, like Urban Decay 24/7 liners.
LOVE! I got this free with a L'Oreal mascara and I'm so glad i did because this is totally HG from this moment on. I have tried EVERY drug store black pencil liner known to man...you name it, it's in my stash but nothing is this good. This liner is BLACK, it's creamy and smooth, it doesn't tug on any skin while applying, it's blendable, it's longwearing (over UDPP). The only con I kinda have is that I mostly wear it on my waterline and it does wear off in a couple hours...with that said I've never had ANY liner stay on my waterline so if reapplying is the answer I would rather do it with a liner and soft and pigmented as this one.
For the last 2 years I've been hooked on MUFE Aqua Eyes...not anymore, this stuff is darker and softer and half the price.
Thank you L'Oreal, I love you!
I purchased this in the colour Noir/Black. Although I do love this liner a lot, I took of one lippie because I dont think it is as black or as intense as I was expecting.
This liner glides on my eyes effortlessly, after about 30 seconds it set and it does not smudge at all. Does not flake or fade which is the problem I have with a lot of my liners.
ive tried a whole lot of eyeliners and pencils never seem to work for me for the simple fact that they are not dark enough. liquid eyeliner always seems to give a cleaner more intense look. that was until i found this pencil. it goes on so smoothly and DARK! i can jus apply it once n it gives the dark look. my only dislike about this eyeliner is that because it is so smooth it has to be sharpen often which means it runs out faster than some eyeliners. the price is good for such a good eyeliner so im willing to sacrifice that is runs out fast. i love it tho! it stays on clean throughout the day. but the end of the night i might just have a little smudging at the ends of my eyes. il deff be buying this again
I'm very impressed by this eyeliner. I have it in brown, it's very pigmented and extremely smooth. I use it on my water line and smudge it on my lower lash line. It surprisingly lasts a very long time. I'll apply it at 6:30am and it will still be there by the time I get done with school at 1:30pm. I really like this eyeliner and plane to repurchase again when I am out.
this is fine, i will continue to use it until i find a better eyeliner, it is too big for me, you cannot make a thin line with it, and it is not blendable. very very black though, i like the color,but it smudges like crazy. also, the tip breaks off very easy and you will have to sharpen it constantly, which is annoying. if it was less fat, and was less prone to break off, i'd give it a 5. i will say it goes on super smooth,and feels nice going on, but they should do some work on this product, i see potential. lol
This pencil had it's pros and cons. The black color is very deep and dark and the color payoff is great. Achieving a nice thick black line is easy with this pencil. It does not blendable after application (which I did not prefer). But if you want a very solid dark line this pencil is great for that. Unfortunately its creases like crazy. By the middle of the day I had dark black eyeliner creases on my eyelids, which didn't wipe off easily since this pencil is not very smudge-able. I do have pretty oily lids, so I may have better luck with this using UD primer underneath. I also hate that you have to sharpen this pencil, because I have never been able to get a fine point with this. No matter how much I sharpen it the point is always chubby. I always have to sharpen it every few days as a lot of product seems to come off with every use. With all of that sharpening I feel like a lot of product is wasted. I put this on early in the morning before work and it creased before midday and had to be reapplied before I went out at night.
Bottom line: Great color payoff, thick line, very dark black, not very blendable (which could be good or bad depending on your preference), creases alot on oily lids, cannot get thin line.
FIND IT AT: Drug stores
1. PACKAGING: Sleek pencil look with the texture of cream but vibrancy of a shadow and same intensity as a liquid. Easy to use, if you can draw a line then you can use this.
2. COLORS: Very vibrant and rich. I own purple and emerald green and they are fun way to experiment with and helps make e/s pop. You can even use it as an all over e/s shadow instead of just as a liner.
3. TEXTURE: Is smooth, creamy, and glides easily and is a dupe for UD 24/7 liner.
Almost impossible to sharpen. Darker, truly intense color but smudges after an hr or so.
wow. i really like this eyeliner. i've tried a bunch of drugstore pencil liners, and this is my favorite. i got it in black, and it was sold out in the targets i went to, so i had a feeling it'd be a good product.
-pigmentation. this stuff is really black. just the way i like it =D when they say extra intense, they mean it.
-it stayed on my top eyelid for the whole day! granted, i applied it around 2:30 PM today .. and it's almost 10 PM, but i still think that's friggin impressive. note: i have xtremely oily lids, and i also primed my eyes with two faced s.i., and mac painterly
-it claims to give the intense look of a liquid liner. i use liquid liner every day, and i have to agree with that claim
-i hate when the cap on a pencil liner comes off easily, and colors the inside of my purse. that hasn't happened yet ; )
- i love using liner on my waterline, and when i use this one it only lasts for a few hours
-limited selection of colors
-wish it came in a waterproof version
overall, good job l'oreal. please don't discontinue this!
