This was the very second eyeliner I've ever had, and frankly, before I got this, I was avoiding eyeliner like people avoid the plague after trying to use my first. Neutrogena really outdid themselves with this eyeliner. Not only do I adore the included sharpener (pull out the smudge tool, and there's a handy sharpener), which lets me get very thin, precise lines, but the smudge tool is so useful to get a natural daytime look or a dramatic smokey eye. Really, if I were only allowed to have one cosmetic product for a three week vacation, this would be it because of it's multiple functions.
The eyeliner itself is wonderful. The colors are gorgeous and rich, (the brown that I have is perfect for school), and the eyeliner glides on with no effort at all.
The only complaint I have with this eyeliner is that it smudges pretty easily, and it doesn't last very long on my (annoying) Asian eyes. I'm currently trying some eye primer to remedy the issue because I really like this eyeliner.
I have spiced Chocolate. I love it! I like the smudge tool on one end. It goes on smoothly unlike most crayon/pencil type eyeliners I've tried. Spiced Chocolate is a nice deep brown which is good with my dark brown eyes--not too dramatic and it really does make my eyes look bigger. I sometimes go without mascara entirely when I wear it since it makes my eyes look bigger and my lashes thicker.
Whoah! This product feels really sticky on the eyes, even as you are applying it. The color is not super pigmented so you'll need a few swipes to actually make it work. It also rubs off and if you are not careful you might end up with Panda eyes. I would recommend you keep searching for better liners out there. It does the trick as an eyeliner but, for the high cost, I can say it is not worth it. I purchased this in the black color, maybe the story is different with other colors as I read here in previous reviews. Anyways, good luck.
Hands down, this is the best eyeliner pencil that you can buy in a drugstore, etc. I use it only to line the lower lid. It lasts, its soft & smooth-no tugging. Does not smear. Love it. Started using it back in 2010. Used to use it in Spiced chocolate & now in Cosmic Black. Love it! UPDATE-the Twilight Blue did not even show up on me. But I will always purchase Cosmic Black-with my ash hair (graying naturally) the Cosmic Black is the best shade for me-perfection! (And I wear glasses, a majority of the time now-have to or I can't see)
I got this in twilight blue and I love it! It really does do something to make my eyes pop. I use this daily
I think I might have finally found the perfect liner for my waterline. I was using the Revlon Colorstay automatic liner and I liked it but I was having problems with it flaking all over my face; the flakes were also getting in my eyes and bothering my contacts. I think this is due to the fact that the Revlon liner is a drier formula. Anyway, I researched drugstore liners and this liner from Neutrogena sounded just right. First of all, I love the packaging and the smudger thatís included. The liner is super black, creamy and glides onto my waterline with no tugging or pulling. The liner lasts a good while on my waterline and I only need to reapply once during the day. This liner is much creamier than the Revlon and as such I have not experienced any flaking during the day; the liner sets but somehow still stays creamy. The liner does have little silver shimmer flecks in it but once I apply it I donít see the shimmer and they donít bother my eyes or contacts at all. For all the contact lenses wearers out thereÖ.this liner does not transfer onto my lenses and make them blurry. I canít use the LíOreal Intense liner or the Milani Liquifeye liner because they are so super creamy that the liner ends up all over my contacts and drives me up the wall. This Neutrogena liner is now my go to liner and I highly recommend it.
I got this in Spiced Chocolate. It's a pretty dark/bronze-y brown, very nice for blue eyes. And the smugger on the other end is a nice touch. The only thing I don't like about this liner is that its lasting power is pretty poor. I've seen cheaper eyeliners last just as long. If I can't find something reasonably priced that will get me through the day without smudging and fading, I will repurchase.
A continual drugstore buy for me. While I change my mind all the time with shadows, I never mess with my liner. And this is the best for the price! it glides on smooth, but it's not so soft that it just smudges all over. I get that perfect, thin pencil line every time. and it has a smudger for those who like a soft smokey look. I have fair skin and darker blonde hair so I get the color "spiced chocolate" because I think a dark brown is softer than black for me. But it lasts all day, and works great!
I was surprised by the quality of this eyeliner. I got the Neutrogena Nourishing Eyeliner in "Spiced Chocolate." It's a beautiful dark brown, and I noticed there is some gold glitter in it when it's held up to the light. I was also pleased by the effectiveness of the rubber "smudger" end. Overall, this eyeliner is a great drugstore or Wal-Mart buy; reasonable cost with a great product! I'll definitely go back and get another one in black.
I bought this in a metallic bronze/brown shade because they were out of the regular brown. The color is fine, the metallic part does not show up much but the problem I had is that if it happens to rub off into my eye, it sticks onto my contact lense and is very hard to remove! It's happened a couple of times now and I have to rub and rub my contacts to get the smudge off. Maybe the metallic flakes embed themselves into the lense?? Eeew. Don't buy the metallic shade(s) if you wear contacts....
