I love Bourbon. The colour sets of my hazel eyes beautifully and i love the little gold flecks too. The only thing is, the name is a little misleading. I wouldn't have called it 24-7, as its staying power is really good but it ain't great! As a previous reviewer said, its not waterproof but its a good soft liner with great depth in colour. I also like the fact that it shaprens smoothly, not like some liners that tend to nip a bit if they haven't been sharpened properly... Dangerous! Need you ask for more?
My favorite go-to eyeliner. I have rather small, deep set eyes, so I usually have trouble with pencil or liquid liners looking very harsh on my lids. This liner gave me a nice, smooth line that was easy for even my shakey hands to control and didn't make me feel like I was stabbing myself with a sharpened pencil. The color looks *great* on blue eyes and really makes them stand out. The gel makes the line softer and more natural looking than other pencils I've tried and makes the color quite buildable. I've not had any problems with smudging, but I don't have very oily lids, plus I use primer and powder before the makeup goes on, so I might not be the best judge of that. Can't wait to try other colors!
As my first venture into department store cosmetics, I had high expectations for this pencil. I originally used it on my water line and wasn't impressed. It came off easily and the color wasn't very intense. Not what I had hoped for in a $15 (USD) eyeliner. So I set it aside for a week, and then came back to it after watching a tutorial on applying eyeliner to the upper and lower lashlines. It worked fabulously! It glided on easily, even for a "novice" like me, without a hint of tugging. (I've always worn makeup, but just recently got more into application techniques and better quality products.) The color is a great everyday liner for my blue gray eyes, and I like that it has a tiny bit of sparkle, but not too much for daytime. I wish it had a little more staying power and I'm still working on the perfect line, but I am very happy with this liner : )
I bought this because I wanted a darker brown eyeliner that what I was using then. I was using Too Faced Bronze Bombshell, which is also a metallic easy-glide-on eyeliner. I thought I would like this eyeliner better since the Too Faced one sometimes clumps and is not exactly glide-on. Well...although this eyeliner is a gorgeous rich brown color that really make my brown eyes pop...it's not what I had expected. Also, it's not exactly contact lenses friendly. Not only that, but it also, like the previous reviewer noted, wipes away VERY EASILY. After a couple hours, at the outer corner of my eyes the eyeliner is already gone. It comes off easily if you tear as well. The color is gorgeous, but I don't think the eyeliner is that great. I'm going back to the Too Faced one.
ETA: The other colors in this eyeliner are great, however. I dunno what is wrong with his one. I own Covet, which is an emerald green and I have had no problems with that one.
I love this eyeliner.
The good: the color is amazing, the coverage is great, the pencil's formula glides on amazingly smooth with no skippage or weird lines. It's a soft smooth application. That part is worth every penny of $16.
The bad: I've worn it several times now and it still wipes away pretty easy. It stays unless you wipe at it. I wouldn't call it waterproof exactly or finger proof, but the good outweighs this part for me at least.
This is my HG eyeliner. I wear it everyday. It goes with everything, and really makes my eyes pop.
This is my HG eyeliner! I love the color (rich chocolate brown with golden shimmer) and the consistency of this liner. It glides on like a dream and doesn't tug the skin which is great. I don't have oily lids but I do need something that is semi-waterproof and smudge-free because I wear contacts and I have to use rewetting drops every few hours, and yet this eyeliner never fade or smudge on me. Most importantly, I have fair skin and I find most black eyeliners look too intense on me, so bourbon is a great alternative and it actually accentuates my hazel eyes beautifully. I've tried MAC teddy and Bobbi Brown chocolate shimmer gel liner but none of them beat bourbon. I normally get it at Ulta with coupon of $5 off $10 purchase which cut the price down to $10 for a pencil, what a steal! But I wouldn't mind pay full price for this eyeliner since I really think it's the best and worth every penny. :)
I must say I love the forumla. The new 24/7 formula is GREAT! It goes on smooth and stays on all day! I just don't like the color so much [got it with UD's Midnight Cowboy set]. Brown e/l has never worked for me...BUT I like the formula enough to give it 4 lippies and to keep using it!
The best eyeliner ive ever used- I have sensitive eyes and this product does not irritate them like every other eyeliner i have used plus it doesnt smudge either.
I love this eyeliner! I have yet to find an eyeliner that does not smudge at all, but at the same time is so soft. I have been using the Le Stylo Lancome eyeliners, but I got this one in a set and love it. The colour is amazing being a dark mocha brown with a bit of goldy shimmer. It glides on flawlessly with no tuging and stays put all day, even when I go swimming. I would recommend this product to everyone.
