I swear by this stuff! I would never usually buy liquid liners, i could never get on with them, but i knew that deep down if i wanted it to last, i'd need to give in and buy one. I was recommded this by a friend who tours/plays with various bands and works as a roadie/tech, her words were "i wear this out on stage every night, remember those panda eyes we got after shows when we were kids? never again" My sister brought me it for my birthday two weeks later, and i've never used another black liquid liner since. And that was nearly three years ago. Sometimes i wish the brush to not be a brush, but for the most part, i can deal with it, i could never go without it.
WARNING!!! this is not a eyeliner, but a permenent marker lol....i have applied this eyeliner in the day and it will not budge. you can swim in it, shower in it, and cry with it and it will not fail you. Please!!!!! on a serious note....this eyeliner is very hard to remove and can leave your eyes and the skin around your eyes very sore due to the amount of scrubbing in order to get it off. However besides all of that, its a great eyeliner.
This is the only eyeliner I buy. I always wear liquid eye liner and would always have problems with the eyeliner getting on my eye lids (I have oily skin). But this stays on without smudging. The only thing is waiting for it to dry because if you're too impatient it'll get on your lids! Once it's on it's a vivid black color and won't come off. It last me a while too, about 3-4 months, not bad for $15.
I love this eyeliner :] Ive always HATED the people who didn't have oily eyes and could use cheapie drug store products and have it last all day, while I had to go through numerous brand to find one ive liked. This liner WILL NOT BUDGE, EVER. But, it looks a bit harsh and can be tricky to apply (it is tacky in consistency and gets stuck to your lashes) but it doesnt move so I cant complain :]
Oh yes, youll also need an oil-based make up remover to get rid of it. I really mean it when I say it doesnt budge
Its my HG eyeliner. A lot of people have a problem with this product because of the application process. Obviously the applicator is flimsy and you can easily mess up if you use the brush to apply this eyeliner. I found a easy way to apply it though! I swatch the eyeliner on a piece of paper then take my 266 brush and apply it as if I was applying a fluidline. Problem solved!!
The staying power is amazing and its a real black color. I've gone through 2 already in the past 6 months because its just that good. I even talked to a MUA at the MAC counter about what eyeliner has the best staying power and pigmentation...she said hands down liquidlast liner is the best product they have for a liquid liner/cream liner.
The only con of this product is that it is really difficult to remove, but just find a good eye make up remover and you'll be fine. GO OUT AND GET IT YOU WON'T REGRET IT!!! No flaking or smudging what so ever :)
If you're looking for an eyeliner with really really GREAT staying power, than this is definitely worth a try for you.
It stays up to 8 hours and longer without flaking, smearing or cracking. and the color is a really deep black. However, with this PRO there comes the CON as well: Its staying power is still there if you don't want it anymore, removing it is kinda hard, especially if you draw on your lower lashline - you have to rub your skin more than you should and it still won't come of as a whole. Besides it takes a long time to dry if you make any mistakes or blink without letting it dry completely - you won't get rid of the mistakes without removing all your make-up.
The brush it comes with is not really made for thin lines, but since I'm more on the heavy, dramatic side of make-up, it's not a disadvantage for me.
I'll definitely repurchase it, but use it only for drawing my eyebrows on - since it's good to know, that your eyebrows definitely will survive - no matter what you're doing....won't use it on upper & lower lashline because it's such a hassel to get rid of it again on that delicate skin in your eye area.
So if you're looking for a liner with great staying poewer that doesn't irritate your eyes - buy it. If you're new to eyeliner and aren't used to it yet - don't buy it, it will annoy the hell out of you.
The staying power of this liner is INCREDIBLE. However, it also causes some problems. There isn't any room for mistakes when you're using this stuff; there's no way to correct a not-so-precise line without completely starting over and scrubbing the crap out of your lids.
My other problem with this liner is the brush. It's hit and miss; sometimes the line looks great, sometimes it comes out a little gloopy and looks like I wobbled my hand or something. There's just no consistency with this product :( I get so nervous when using this liner, it's not even worth it anymore. I love the staying power, but there's just too many negative aspects. Sorry liquidlast, to the swap you go!
I was always against liquid eyeliner because it was too "messy" and not mistake-proof and the biggest reasons why I felt this way with this liner was because of the dumb floppy brush it comes with! There's no way I was able to make a perfect or close to perfect line with that brush.
I started using this with my 266 and I go slow, pushing the liner onto my upper lashline. YES it stays and it doesn't budge, and it's pretty much now my favorite! I can't believe I was slow enough to not figure out to change brushes.
This is good night time makeup if you go out and get hot or oily and get raccoon eyes by the end of the night. I did a smokey look with only this and blacktrack fluidline (as the "shadow") and i even put a little liquidlast on my lower lashline and my makeup stayed on 8 hours while I was out...AND I fell asleep in it and it looked good the next day! That's amazing, considering I am one to always get raccoon eyes.
I have no problem removing it, I use Ponds wipes and everything comes off easily.
I have fairly oily lids and trying to get anything to stick to them is a chore in itself. However, this eyeliner works! Yes, the consistency is thick. I use a brush for this and the results are flawless.
The applicator wand is unusable and would avoid it.
Overall, i would definitely buy again and not only that but in other colors too! MY HG!!!!
Ive been a member of Makeupalley for 3 years now and this is my first review, which should say how special this is for me. This is the Holy Grail. Its what the Crusades were for. Its the bada bing of all eyeliners. This is the one product of MAC's ridiculously long list of items that I faithfully purchase, and that I have backups of backups for. I actually ran off the plane in Singapore because they took it from mee at security (liquid) and I bought another bottle at duty free Im that scared of not having it with me. Its made me hot!
I have oily lids, angry sparse lashes that you can barely see and the world's worst watery weyes, (sorry!) and this kicks everything's ass. I can put it on, and get a matte, carbon black line, thin or thick, wing it, take it down to the tear duct a la Cleopatra and it will stay right there until Andrea's Waterproof pads take it all off. The brush takes some getting used to, though I have gone through 5+ bottles and the brush always "loosens" up through repeated use and becomes a bit softer. The formula is thicker than usual, but im sure the bulletproof finish it delivers needs more ingredients than your usual crap.
Suck it up, if you are looking for something that you apply carefully once, and never ever have to retouch, work with the brush and you'll get it down. You wont wash it off with soap or something, and water wont do it, but you should be using an eye makeup remover anyways, before your face wash. Its seriously the best product anyone makes. Try it!
