I bought this after I had a lot of problems with the Smashbox pen liner. It dried out really quickly.

This one I have few problems with. I tend to have to wet the tip a bit to make sure it glides on smoothly, which is not a huge deal to me. I do have to go over it a couple of times to get it as black as I want, but that doesn't really take up a lot of time.

I'm a fan of the pen kind of liquid liner. The ones that have the small pot tend to be harder to control with their longer handle and the inability to hold it right near the applicator to get good control. I always do my liner in dashes or draw the top of the line and fill in diagonally to ensure it gets in the lash line.

I have fairly oily eyelids, which is kind of a weird problem to have. I do end up with some smudging in my crease by the end of the day, but it's easy to wipe off if I'm out somewhere, and it's not extremely noticeable.

I may try something else, but my options are limited with my pen applicator preference, price limitations and a lack of stores in which to buy makeup.

I really love this product. I was really surprised at how many people hate it. i think i must have gotten a good one.It has awsome control, only one swipe across the lid and its really black and it lasted a long time. I always use a primer and base so maybe that has something to do with it but I really love this product along with the rest of the colorstay line.

This eyeliner was one of the worst I had bought of my life! I had bought this in last december for christmas because I would have an eyeliner with more lasting and I though this was perfect. BIG MISTAKE! Immediately I beginning to apply this on my led, I had to spend 3 times for the color was black not grey.

I don't recommend this product especially when he costs 10$ and more. In Canada, he cost 11$ approximately. Mine, he was on sale at 7.50$ I think.

Ugh, what a disaster. This is one of the worst products I've ever encountered. It's packaged in a pen form, with a felt-tip maker-style applicator. Mine felt like a DRIED OUT felt tip-marker, and like a dried out marker, it could barely form a line (At the time, I thought I might have just had one from a bad batch, but based on the other reviews, the product as a whole is terrible). This was a flat-out waste of $8, and being someone who almost never returns makeup, it says a lot that I returned this for a refund.

Got this in a package with another eyeliner. It was my first liquid eyeliner. Not only does it wash off super easy, it is hard (literally), and difficult to manage. Looks great if you've taken your time and the color didn't bleed. During the first uses, the color barely came off. Works better now that I've been using it. I do have to praise the thin shape of the tip. It's easier to make a thinner line around the inner corners. I just wish I didn't have to do several coats to get this to look right.

**Make sure you snap the cap on all the way.

Buy this if you love paying 7 dollars for a disaster waiting to happen. The reason I bought it is because I've always been satisfied with the ColorStay line.. the foundation is awesome, the pencil/liquid liners are fantastic.. why would this be any different? The pen itself is great, the tip makes for precise and smooth application.. but the formula? WHY! I bought it in blackest black.. unfortunatly it seems dried out and when you do get the color flowing it is a streaky NON-OPAQUE mess! I gave it the benefit of the doubt and assumed I bought an old one or something, but checked in with MUA and found that my experience with this is consistent with tons of others here. Save your money, ladies. There are great d/s liquid liners out there but this one is awful.

Thought I would give this a try because it is cheap.
When will I learn my lesson?!
Liner smudges all over the place and has really WEAK color! Grosse liner:(.
Should have known better to stray from my Geisha Ink Liner. Nothing has been as amazing...My HG...should not keep trying new products but I can't help it!

I bought this today and got really excited about it. I was actually planning to buy the MAC Blacktrack Fluid Line or the Stila Smudge Pot but when I was walking around at a drugstore and found out that it was on sale, I totally didn't hesitate to purchase this! I tried this on right away when I got home and I was really disappointed when I found out that it SMUDGES VERY EASILY! It smudges all over after like 2-3 hours and I REALLY HATE IT!!! The color that I bought was blackest black and sad to say that it is not that really pigmented! It turns out to be gray after a couple of hours and again it SMUDGES ALL OVER! I totally love the other revlon color stay products but this one?? Basically your average crappy liquid liner! I regret buying this! Waste of money! It costs $12 here in the philippines and t'was really pricey for a drugstore product! Totally won't repurchase again and will just purchase the MAC blacktrack fluid line instead in the future :l

I got this as a free gift from Sephora and that's about the only positive I have regarding this product. I have used ELF liquid eyeliner pens in the past and I liked them, but this was horrible. I am absolutely awful at apply regular old liquid eyeliner and I was no better with this pen. I don't know what it was but whenever I tried to apply it, it bled all into my eye and made a huge mess. Whatever it was, this was just a godawful eyeliner. Do not recommend it at all.
