This was my first eyeliner, and I wanted to try out how I would look with eyeliner on. It doesn't break when I sharpen it, and it's really soft. However, it smudges so bad that I look like a panda. Even if I were to wipe off the smudges, it would re-smudge even a couple of hours after application.
In the end, I just gave it to a friend to use as a temporary brow pencil.
I bought this for a dollar, and for a dollar it's much better than you would think. It was very easy to apply and gave the black charcoal look that I was looking for. The only downside was that it smudges very easily. I often find smudges on my eyelid shortly after applying it, however, if you want a smudged smokey eye, this pencil would definitely do the job!
Ok so I bought a ton of these on sale, $0.49. Really, really cheap. But moving on, this pencil is very very soft, which is a plus because the last thing u want is something hard tugging on your eyes. It gives quite a precise line too, I had the easiest time with winged eyeliner, which is something I struggle with. Given how easy it applies, it also fades very quickly. Not to mention, how badly this smudges. EEEK! I took a nap with this on...not good I know :\\, and awoke to eyeliner all over my lid and under my eyes...it was quite scary. This however, is not bad, because for some smokey looks and cut crease looks, its a must for your liner to easily smudge to get rid of any harsh lines. I think its a winner still, but not for precise eyeliner, because it won't last long. I love it nonetheless. The white one on the other hand is amazing, not just for the price, its just an amazing pencil, soft and pigmented, oh and so much product!
Wow, where is the love for this product? I got mine in a set at CVS... it came with a black one, a white one, a lipliner, an eyeshadow trio, and a gloss. I mostly bought for the shadows, because I already have my HG black liner. Well, I tried the black liner in the kit anyway... and it was good. Honestly, it's comparable to my favorite Sonia Kashuk pencil. It has a "thicker" consistency than most drugstore pencils, and I felt like it deposits a lot of color. It's very dense and creamy, but it doesn't skip or tug on my lash line. I worked for a 12 hour day wearing it, and it only faded a little (over primer)... and it didn't smear under my eyes at all. I haven't had any problems that others have had as far as the tip breaking. It actually feels quite sturdy to me. I also love the smudgeability of this. See, I like to smudge my eyeliner purposefully when I do a smoky eye. This blends really nicely when I use a q-tip... a nice true black. I have no complaints with it so far... and for less than a buck, it's definitely not bad to have as a back up in my stash.
this eyeliner isnt the greatest but for everyday use it is good. for going out to school or grocery store its good. why waste more then 99 cents for going to those places? i will buy it again
I bought this based on a recommendation in a magazine. I thought perhaps this was a best kept beauty secret that I was missing out on, so I bought a pencil from Wal-Mart for 93 cents. Sadly, this was junk.
The first problem I noticed was that the pencil didn't line well. It dragged and skipped across my lash line. I had to keep going over and over the same spots to get some color - but by that point the line I was drawing was getting rather thick and messy. The second problem was that the color was really more of a charcoal than a true black. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, because if Cover Girl and Urban Decay can't get black right then I can't expect Wet 'n' Wild to. The last problem was the deal-breaker. This eyeliner traveled! I used it to line my lower lashes and by mid-day it was all over my under-eye area. Not pretty!
Bottom line: don't waste a dollar on this!
I got this with the blue eyeliner for 99 cents so... if I could I'd give this a 0.1 for the price rating. I didn't really get a chance to test this out on my eyes because it kept breaking every time I applied pressure to it. Anyway, although it's cheap, the fact that I can't use it... defeats the purpose of purchasing it. So anywho, 2 lippies it is, and to the trash can it goes.
I have used this liner for quite some time before discovering a new fave from VS. It was dirt cheap (only about 99 cents, I think at CVS) and did a decent job for that price. My only tiff with it was it was never a true black.. it always had a grayish tiny on my lids and smudged really easy. I felt I always had to reapply during the day to keep the color. But for 99 cents I couldn't complain.. it lasted a long time.
Picked this up today while passing through my local Walgreens. This is totally crap. Got black black and dark brown. The black doesn't even show up on my waterline, nor does it grab onto the eye. Not to mention it almost comes off as a grayish color. Now the dark brown on the other hand, is okay for filling the same areas of the brow, up that's about it. Thank goodness it was on sale for 70 cents. Most definitely won't purchase this liner ever again.......blah!!!!
Well... i just bought it today (March 30th, 2009)
