I really like liquid eyeliner and was sort of skeptical about buying a sephora eyeliner. I don't know if its just a snob thing, but I tend to think the store brand's product can't be as good as a higher end line. That's probably not really the case, but sometimes Sephora's line can be just as expensive or close to the price of a high end product or MAC. This is my first Sephora product and I only bought it because I was looking for an electric blue eyeliner. For weeks I have been wanting to do an electric blue cat eye. I didn't want anything with shimmer. I just wanted a nice matte, neon blue and this eyeliner delivered that to me.
I have to say this is one of the best liquid eyeliners I have used. The long tapered felt brush make me skeptical at first, but after using it I was in love. It makes my lines so much more precise and really helped create that crisp, dramatic winged line on the corners that is so essential to a great cat-eye.
The lasting power on this is about average. It won't last you 24 hours or probably more than 8 hours without touch up, but I find that is how most liquid eyeliners are. I use one of Maybelline's liquid eyeliners and this is very comparable to it. I haven't noticed this irritating my eyes, which can sometimes happen.
I would recommend these eyeliners if you are looking for a unique color, but I wouldn't bother for your basic black. Get a drugstore waterproof liquid eyeliner in that case.
Nothing too special about this, just your typical liquid eyeliner. Brush is nice and thin, which makes perfect lines.Runs very easily though, from the 30 seconds it took me to get out of the car and walk into school while it was raining slightly it managed to run down my face. I'll stick to my drugstore eyeliner which is just as good (maybe better) for half the price.
I'd tried other eyeliner pencilsand found the dragged over my eyelids and they always smudged of within ten minutes. I have a really low crease so I think this was part of the problem.
When I was at sephora I was attracted to this because of the price. I settled on the dark brown for my light blue eyes. It took some practice to get a perfect line but once it's on it doesn't smudge at all! It stay perfect all day through school and yet comes off easily with just soap and water. Beautiful
I was a Lancome eyeliner diehard until I met these! My mom introduced me to these puppies, and since then, I purchased the matte black, brown and a sparkly purple. . Why they rock: super deep pigment, a diverse color palette to chose from, a reasonable price and that they last as advertised for over twelve hours. Though I normally shy away from the unnatural eye makeup colors, the sparkly purple is most decidedly un-tacky pretty shade that brings out the warmth in brown eyes (yay!). Why they may not float your boat: a little difficult to take off (almost like an eyeliner tattoo) and a teensy bottle, that is wee smaller that your average liquid eyeliner. Actually, the bottle size does not bother me in the least, but I like a natural, lash defining line. If you enjoy a daily winged, Cleopatra eye, you may run though a bottle in a matter of weeks.
This eyeliner isn't BAD, there are just better ones. It is long lasting and doesn't run. My friend got the green sparkly one and it looks absolutely gorgeous! My issue is the black. You literally have to shake the crap out of it to really get the color. I feel Milani's liquid eyeliner tops this; it's cheaper, long-lasting, and the color is BLACK BLACK BLACK! But I also got this Sephora liner in purple so I'll update this review after using that one.
EDIT: So I tried the violet, and the night I used it I went into the bathroom while spending a few hours at the venue, and my eyeliner was gone. Just, gone! I didn't rub my eyes the whole night and it wasn't overly hot in the venue. My best friend's makeup still looked perfect. I didn't know what happened. She recommended next time to use a few more coats. I used the violet today and coming home from class it still looks really good so my best friend's advice helped. Probably won't repurchase because there are probably better eyeliners in a beautiful purple color.
I like how fine the brush is and that it's matte. Also, it's really black which is nice. I personally don't mind how dark it is. It's very long lasting. No flakes! I would have given it 5 lipsticks, but I don't like that it's VERY easy to smudge and the difficulty of removing it is hard. It gets all over your eyes.
Absolutely love this product. I wear eyeliner everyday & I find this one works amazingly. It's really black & they've recently changed the brush applicator to a sponge but its just as good.
I love this liquid liner - particularly the brush size. I love how it is very fine point so you can build up the thickness of the line. Stays on decently, doesn't flake, will repurchase.
This liquid eyeliner and I are having a very steamy love affair! I met this Black 01 mistress a month ago and everything is just so great. I think she might be the one! I have always wined and dined the shiny babes but this matte ebony beauty has me dancing tango! I always brought home waterproof liners but this non water proof mistress has got me past the point of no return. She has many tricks up her sleeves. She stays on me all day ;). She is very independent and removes readily with water. She stays away from my eyes since she would rather have me doting on her beauty all day than struggling to remove color pigments from my eyes as with other eyeliners. Yep, she is that awesome. I take off a star so that Sephora knows that I am just spellbound not incapacitated. If she preserves all her qualities but is water resistant, she gets 20 stars from me!! But then again, if she was as water resistant as I would like, she would have attachment issues and not wash off my lids so readily and for such effortless removal, I replace the star. Oh yea, she is definitely going to be my wifey.
This is not bad for a cheap liquid eyeliner at all. I'm really not into the Sephora line of makeup but when I saw the blue one which I thought was a unique, matte blue I just had to have it. It comes with a felt tip applicator which is easy to use and easy to draw a fine line with. The medium bright blue color dries to a matte finish and really brings out my brown eyes. Even though I have oily lids, this didn't smudge or flake on me and actually lasted all day. Not sure if this is supposed to be waterproof but it comes off easily with soap and water at the end of the day. I'm curious to try the other colors and since I paid $11 for it (which is about the same price as some drugstore brands) I could actually get several and not break the bank too much.
