OMG! Finally, I found a black liner that works. After trying so many black eyeliners like L'Oreal Infallible in carbon black, UD in zero, Clinique in Really Black, Stilla in Noir, Benefit Waterproof eyeliner) per my sister's recommendation I bought this one. Having used the black/brown long time ago and not liking it, I was a little hesitant. I bought it anyways and I am liking it a lot. What I like the most is the black pigmentation. I have yellow undertones and some black eyeliners turn either blueish or greyish. The staying power is amazing, from 8AM until I removed it around 10PM. Please note that I do not wear this eyliner on the waterline, but close to bottom lashes and on top. Yes, the eyeliner could be a little softer. However, this is the best among all the expensive ones I have used.
I was pretty disappointed by this product. For one thing, the pencil broke rather easily, but I did like that it twisted up. Anyway, in the time that I used it, the pencil ended up breaking off twice. When I did apply the eyeliner, it went on pretty smoothly, but if left unsharpened (and sharpening it takes off quite a bit of the pencil) it was difficult to make a fine line. Also, throughout the day, it tended to smudge on my bottom lids. I ended up using it maybe..6 times before I threw it out.
I use it for daily wear sometimes, but not recommended for long day wear. I have oily eyelids, and this product sometimes smudge on my eyelid if I use it for a long day. Easy to use, but not efective if you like thin lines on your eyelids. Now I'm using Revlon colorstay liquid liner:)
My only problem is that it breaks WAY too easily. I've only used it twice and it only has a third left! Besides that minor mishap (for me at least), it's a nice black and wonderful. :). The only reason I'm not rebuying is because I already have plenty of black eyeliner. Maybe I'll buy one in brown.
This is the best eyeliner I've used so far. It really does stay in place. Once you apply it, it isn't going anywhere until you wash it off. I bought this after a friend told me about it and I had some extra money on me. I'm really glad she told me about this eyeliner, because before I bought it my eyeliner before it wouldn't stay in place on my waterline, especially at the outer corners. I would have to reapply it on the outer corners every hour and that becomes very annoying after a while. When I first applied this eyeliner I noticed that I didn't have to touch up on it until a couple of hours later. I also like that it's a retractable pencil instead of a pencil, I don't really like pencil eyeliners but will use them if necessary. I also like that it's not that pricey, at least in my area. It's like $4 to $5 at some of the drugstores where I live. Until I find an eyeliner that works even better than this one, I'm going to continue to buy this eyeliner.
I have EXTREMELY OILY lids & a really really really really wet, oily waterline compared to many people. This eyeliner smeared on both my waterline and upper lashline quite quickly. I've heard tens and thousands of rave reviews on this, however. I think that if your linds/lines aren't excessively oily, this product would work for you. It is also at a great price and can be found at any drugstore.
I use this for tight-lining and on my waterline. Glides on smoothly and no smudging or fading!!! Doesn't smudge the best though, so ideal for those who like precise clean lines.
This is my HG eyeliner. It's really black, stays on all day, never smudges, even on my lower lids. It's the first eyeliner I've used that hasn't smudged under my eyes within an hour (including liquid eyeliners, which I hate because I like smokey eyes, and it takes FOREVER to do with liquid, and generally ends up running anyway.) My only issue is it's on the pricey side and the liner stick is prone to breaking if I'm not careful. Will repurchase forever. :)
I like this product it does its sole main purpose as an eyeliner.
I don't know why I haven't reviewed this yet! It's the best pencil liner I have used from the drugstore. Why? Because it doesn't smudge! I usually have trouble trying to find a pencil liner that stays put on my waterline and upper lash line but this one never fails me. This glides on smoothly on the waterline and lash line, is super creamy and decently pigmented. I don't have to apply it hard to get a good dark line with this. It's probably not the best smudging liner, as it does stay put pretty well, but it can be smudged lightly for a smokey eye. I have fairly oily lids, and this didn't transfer to my crease. It stayed put without having to use a primer or anything like that. The twisting applicator makes it easy for people like me who are too lazy to sharpen their pencils, so that's also a huge plus from me. I would definitely be buying this again as I am running out. :)
