This is my favorite pre-packaged liquid liner because I like the sponge tip a lot! I use Aromaleigh Drama Queen liners with eyeliner sealants a lot. But, when I want something simple and black, this is my go to!
I am a black liquid liner junkie. I wear it every single day, no matter where I'm at or what I'm doing! For the last 10 years I have used Almay's Amazing Lasting Liquid Liner but wanted to try some other brands out! Almay's and Revlon's Colorstay liquid liners are the 2 best I have found, both low and high end. I much prefer a sponge tip to a brush, it makes application smooth and accurate, as well as quick! I am using this in blackest black, and I line all around my eyes, and yes I line my waterline, and this does not hold up on my waterline like Almay's or Revlon's Colorstay liquid liners do. It is better than Maybelline's other liquid formula's, but tends to crack and fade quickly. The packaging is too cute, and the flexible sponge (although it looks odd) works so well at making smooth straight lines. Too bad once it dries it just doesn't hold up. Would not repurchase.
WOW! I must have bought a good batch. I have brownish black and black. I LOVE this product! mine is nicely pigmented but not thick or harsh. today i made a perfect winged liner look with just a couple sweeps of the felt tip applicator, and trust me, if I can get liquid liner to do what i want it to, anyone can :) I put my makeup on at 7:30 am, and took it off at 11:30 PM, there was ZERO flaking, smearing etc. I did use ELF mineral eyeshadow primer under my look, but let me tell you, this stuff stayed! i want to buy more and more, for me: 5 out of 5.
So disappointing! I was lured in by the product description that this was an "Ultimate Precision Liquid Eyeliner." It felt like I was trying to line my lids with a dried-out felt-tipped marker, and the results looked it too! I'm thinking about throwing it out right now and I would certainly never buy this again. Too bad I have a second one from a BOGO offer. :(
this was not the best liquid liner! I felt that the felt tip was too flimsy and the color was not the "blackest black". Also, this product does not have a long staying power at all; i swatched it on my hand and let it sit, but was still able to rub it off! same thing on my eyes unfortunately!
So Maybelline was having 40% off sale for most of its products and I figured, hey why not? I didn't have a liquid liner and, after a long period of deliberation (should i get the new shadow quads? or maybe a new mascara?) I decided that buying something I dont have would make more sense than something I won't really reach for. Anyways, I do not like this. I got it in "Blackest Black" but there is nothing black about it. I have to apply at least 3 times for it to be black. It's very precise, which makes it more of a 2.5, but that's not enough for me.
EDT: I've practiced a little with this and, if I do it in a quick motion, it makes a very nice line. I think I would buy this again but I'd like to explore some more.
Times are tough so I bought this to try when my Lancome Arliner ran dry. It was a pleasant surprise. It makes a clean, intense black line that wears well. The felt tip is slightly more pliable than Artliner but not too flimsy. To test the wearability I ran a line across the back of my hand before a workout. Even inside my glove under intense heat and moisture, it did not flake, fade or smudge. I am curious if the runny result mentioned previously was from a lack of shaking. I didn't see where the package said it needs shaking but it makes a big difference. It IS a step down from Artiner but at $6 I am not complaining.
This product is pretty much a dupe for L'Oreal Lineur Intense (felt tip), only it's about 2 dollars cheaper and the container is shorter. (Lineur Intense eyeliner is my HG.)
You must make sure to shake the container every time you use it, otherwise the liner will separate and the color won't be true. But I like this, I got it in black and it's easy to use.
This liner is just okay. Simple, basic liquid liner. The consistency seems a tad runny & even though I purchased 'Blackest Black' I need to apply 2-3 lines to get a nice, solid black.
EDIT: Since reviewing this product, I've used it a couple more times & have given it a lower rating. This stuff is SO runny/watery & a total waste of money.
