Amazing effing liner. Used to be a lover of the Stila Stay all day and now I'm totally converted. Only wish it came in colors too!
Applicator: It's a brush tip rather than a felt tip applicator, which I like better. The best thing about new liner is that the tip is a the perfect amount of stiffness and thus gives you great control and allows you to get a thinner line. Felt tips tend to get soft after a while making them less precise, but this one stays stiff like the day you bought it and gives you excellent control. Way easier to use than an applicator that's gone soft or an actual brush. Great for beginners.
Formula: I think it's a bit runnier than the Stila, but isn't too runny. Drags less on my lids. Very opaque with one coat. The pen doesn't dry out if left in your drawer as long as you cap it.
Lasting power: Amazing. I've worn winged out liner to hour long spin classes and it looks perfect. I've worn this all day and then accidentally fallen asleep in it and it looks perfect 24 hours later. Does not rub off when I rub my eyes (happens to me when I use the Stila).
Finish: Doesn't dry matte like a gel liner if that's what you're into, but not super shiny either.
Removal: Comes off very easily with a make-up wipe or eye make-up remover.
Price: $18, not cheap but fairly standard for a nice eyeliner
It doesn't come off and is waterproof and almost completely smudgeproof (I gave it 4 stars only because it does seem to smudge juuuuust a bit). I did repurchase it after my first one ran out and it's a great eyeliner (but I don't think I'll be repurchasing again because I found a better one, but if I didn't find that one I would stick with this one for SURE).
Loooove this eyeliner. It's very opaque and very easy to control- even newbies should find it pretty easy to use. Because of the tip of the pen's shape, it's not difficult to achieve any look you might want, especially when you want to go bold with high cat-eyes. I took off a few points merely because sometimes, the tip of the pen can fray and cause it to become harder to control the shape of the lines you draw. Also, I'm a fan of cheap-and-cheerful makeup (I mostly spend money on foundation, while the rest of my makeup can be less impressive), but if you want to splurge and you want a product that WORKS, this is an AWESOME eyeliner. It definitely is worth the money.
The pen doesn't last quite as long as I'd like it to, but it's worth restocking if you can afford it. The extra bucks go a LONG way in terms of quality. Overall, I'm very impressed with it and it has yet to fail me!
This has been my go-to eyeliner for over a year and it's pretty amazing. I take spin classes regularly, and I mean INTENSE spin classes-- sweat pouring and clothes soaked. This eyeliner doesn't budge if I go to class without wiping it off, which is a miracle. I will say that it only goes on opaque if I prime my lids and apply some eyeshadow first-- by itself it's a little watery on my oily lids. The applicator is really precise and easy to get a strong line the first time (with primed lids that is.) My only wish is to find an eyeliner with this level of staying power that goes on without priming and everything first, but I think that's impossible for me at this point.
I love this liquid liner!! Super easy to apply and work with. I love the way it looks! And it took me awhile to finish before I had to buy it again, so I don't mind spending the money. Definitely will continue to buy.
This is my favorite black liquid eyeliner, and have repurchased 3 times. It was a close tie with the Stila liquid liner, but I find this one to have more staying power. If I use it 3-4 times a week, it seems to last me 3 months. I like it because I find it to be precise, the pen tip doesn't fray, is a dark black color, and has staying power. (I did a test at sephora with all the black liners on my hand: made a line, waited for 3 minutes, and then rubbed them off with my finger. Stila and Kat Von D were the hardest to rub out, and I like the KVD black best)
This liner didn't meet the hype. The one I got was dried out within 2 uses. Application of the liner was good although. The staying power wasn't very good....couple hours of normal day....no working out. Returned it to my local Sephora and got my money back. The price of it is not cheap either.
I got this as a birthday gift and I was pretty happy considering the fact that this eyeliner was one of the two liquid eyeliner I've been wanting to buy at Sephora; it was between Kat Von D's and Stila's.
I've worn this all day today, and it is somewhat still intact but just a bit faded bugt no smudges like how my gel liner does. I also hoped it to be a darker shade of black, I personally like my eyeliners a strong shade of black.
Overall, this is a good everyday liner despite the fading but you can touch up easily since the packaging is portable, like a small pen.
It's a wonderful eyeliner that lasts about a year from daily use. The tip is great for fine application and it stays long and does not smudge! Definitely recommended :)
I really loved how easy it was to create a wing cat eye, but not on top of eyeshadow. It seemed to just "dry" up, no matter how much i shook the pen it still did not dispense enough product for fluid movement. I tried to put the top back on after use, it bounced so i had it without a top for literally 5 seconds and i found the top when i tried using it again it just didnt seem to work as great, i had to go over my liner a couple of times and with gel liner on top. i do not think it could have dried up in that time. It does have a slight glare its not completely matte. Great Product will purchase again and be more careful with the top to see how that works out or ill try Stila's instead.
