I just tried this for the first time and it's amazing! I love wearing liquid eyeliner to make my eyes look bigger but I still find most liquid eyeliners really messy and hard to control. I love that the tip is fine and hard, it makes it so easy to shape it the way you want it to look. I would definitely repurchase this product, a hundred times better than any other I've tried.
It makes doing the "cat eye" look a lot easier. Its easy to make lines with it. The only problem is that it kinda seems to dry and skip bc of it after a few uses. Ive only had it about a month and it seems to be running out already..if I were to find it on sale i'd purchase it again..until then i'll be searching for a better lasting pen.
My biggest complaint about liquid liner is, in trying to get it as close to the base of my lashes as possible, it ends up *in* my lashes, drying, giving me 5 big spider leg lashes - hate it ! This doesn't do that at all. I think the type of pen liner that it is, gives me better control. Also the pen isn't soaking wet with liner, it's just right. I use the side of the "pen" and make a line from inner lashes to outer. It's a nice steady line, as thick or thin as you want it. You can "draw" over the liner to get the thickness you want, or use a damp Q-tip to remove if you went too thick. I have the dark brown, and it's plenty dark, but doesn't look black (IMO). It removes very easily (I use Pond's pre-moistened wipes). I mostly wear this with a nude matte eyeshadow (Milani Almondine) and clear mascara (Cover Girl). It is *by far* my favorite liquid liner ! Edited 11/3/2012 - I recently took this out of my stash and liked it again, so much so I got it in Black, love it. Edited 1/13/2013 - Had to throw these away. I realized they were making my eyes water and sting by late afternoon. It really hurt.
My favourite eyeliner of all time!
It definitely is a lot easier to apply since the tip is hard and has a smooth application. I bought the dark brown colour and it's not too strong or too subtle, just right.
I'm one of those people who like to wear eyeliner on its own and I always wear this one. It lasts pretty long and doesn't smudge... however it does tend to fade a bit. It comes off easily too when you use make up remover.
It will definitely be a product I'll continue to buy.
What I love about this is the very fine tipped applicator. I have always found liquid liners difficult to apply, but this pen makes it so easy. Its literally like using a fine-tipped Sharpie. I can achieve a very thin and precise line. I have sensitive skin, and Almay's gentle, fragrance free makeup has never irritated my skin.
This eyeliner pen is amazing!!! I usually use gel eyeliner or regular liquid liner, but I am a convert now. This pen looks so nice, extremely easy to use, very dark and lasts forever. I love it!!!
It's alright. The formula is decent, is matte, dark black when I swatched it on my hand, but when I put it on my eyeballs, it is gray and you have to go over it numerous times. It does flake throughout the day, and does transfer a little on to my upper eyelid. The applicator is nice, like a fine-tip Sharpie marker, but the tip will become less stiff & pointy in about a week or two. But I hated that it irritated my eyes, I think I'm allergic to something on Almay liquid liners, because this happened with the Amazing Lasting liner as well. It stung for a few seconds after I put it on. Not unbearable, but enough that I stopped using it. My advice? Get Maybelline Line Stiletto. It's easier to apply and it doesn't harm my eyes. continued >>
I usually like Almay, but I don't like these new liners at all. The pen applicator is too stiff...it practically poked my lids. The brown shade was too light no matter how much I layered. The blackest shade I did a test run and it just migrated and smeared allover. I would recommend pf liners instead for a ds brand.
This is a very easy liquid eyeliner to use. The only downfall is that it is absolutely comparable to the Fabuliner pen which retails at my Walgreens for $1.99. However, at $5.99 this is still a very affordable go to product.
Definitely will buy again! You can't beat the price and quality-wise, it is better than many liquid pens I tried. First-there is a color present! Second - easy to use, gives a precise line, and lasts surprisingly long for a disposable pen.
Would definitely buy again!
