Here's the deal with this eyeliner: It's amazing. It lines the bottom rim perfectly and can look completely natural or smoldering sexy. The thing is, the pencil can get really messed up with the wrong sharpener. Tired of wasting money, I switched to the Urban Decay 24/7 but it was the same story. Buy the Urban Decay Sharpener and use that with the L'oreal pencil. Just sharpen slowly. The trouble is worth it. This is my fave liner of all time.
This liner is pretty good! it`s verry pigmented and super black,it does not move at all and stays all day!It`s got also, a little shine to it ,that brings a nice effect to the eyes!Love it!
Pros: As many have stated, this product delivers in color intensity and is literally a liquid liner in pencil form.
Cons: Disappears from waterline within an hour or two, and impossible to sharpen.
I purchased this after reading the reviews, thinking I would use the technique of putting it in the freezer for a few minutes before sharpening it. I loved it until I had to sharpen it, and then it all went downhill. Sure, sharpening it immediately after chilling wastes less product than if you don't chill it at all, but so much product is still being wasted that I would definitely not purchase it again. I think I got maybe a quarter amount's worth out of the whole pencil, if not less. Plus now I have to purchase a new sharpener. I'm going back to my liquid liner. I would not advise getting this unless you don't mind spending $8 for just a few uses.
This is the blackest eyeliner I've ever used in pencil form! The formula is totally cool. It literally IS liquid in pencil form. I thought my MAC Kohl Smolder pencil was black, but this is even blacker. If you like to smudge your liner after applying you should work quickly b/c this does set quickly. Once it sets it seems to stay put. For those of you that are beginners at felt tip or brush liquid liners, but want the look of liquid, this is for you. I will buy again.
i'm currently using this and i've bought this product 2 times before. i will begin with the cons first. the eyeliner tends to smudge throughout the day and fades from my waterline very easily. i wear contacts and occasionally it's gotten on there too. BUT, i absolutely love the pigmentation of this eyeliner. and for that reason, i will still repurchase until i find something better or a non-smudging pencil eyeliner for my waterline (which seems like an impossible mission!)
This stuff is amazing. I thought it would be too good to be true to have a pencil liner have the same effect as a liquid liner. But it actually works. It gives you a true black color without fading. I don't get any smudging either. It applies like a dream because of how smooth and soft the formulation is.Truly one of my favorite finds in a very long time.
I don't experience the stinging sensation that other people seem to be talking about. My eyes did not water. I guess it depends on the person.
This is my absolute favorite eye pencil ever. It glides on so smoothly and is very easy to apply. It goes on very dark and very opaque, not a faded black like some liners. Every time I wear it people ask what kind of eyeliner I use, and comment on how perfect and even it is. Most people think I'm wearing a true liquid liner. I love it! One of the very few beauty products I've actually bought again and again.
I have never in my life had a reaction of a product. I tried this yesterday for the first time after reading so many great reviews and almost immediately upon application my eyes started watering and did so all night!
I am going to give it one more shot to see if it was product related or just my eyes but i have a feeling this is going back to the store :(
I love this eyeliner - am on my third pencil since I bought my first one a few months ago! It goes on smooth and creamy, lasts for a long time, and leaves a true black line.
That being said....there is not that much product in the pencil, which is really unfortunate (and why I'm on my third pencil!). After sharpening, a lot of eyeliner goes with it because it is so creamy, and kind of difficult to reapply after sharpening because of it.
This is my favorite eyeliner. it is really really black, smudges easily when first applied, and includes a nice easy to use slanted smudger that makes it pretty easy to smudge along the lash line. I am already on my 3rd in one year because a friend borrowed one and never gave it back (shes a cosmetologist, used to using expensive makeup - she forgot hers one night, and when she tried this she exclaimed "wow! this is great!") the second one was stolen along with my entire collection of makeup when my house was burgled, and I had to pick up another - it was almost unbearable going an entire week without it!
