I have this in blackest black, is not the best there is, I´m still looking for my HG liquid liner, I have to swipe a couple of times to get an even dark black color (even with this being the "blackest black") it fades a little specially on the outer corners of the eyes, but I use this to practice my liquid liner aplication and I´ve improved a lot!!, I wouldn´t buy again, there has to be something better out there.
This is my HG liquid liner. The tip of the applicator allows wonderful control. It goes on nicely and stays put the entire day! I usually don't even like liquid liner but this is just so simple to use with such amazing staying power. I'd certainly buy it again when I run out.
I recently picked this up in Blackest Black after watching a few YouTube tutorials and hearing people rave about this liner. The last time I tried liquid liner, I was about 14 and never knew how to apply it correctly. I have been experimenting with this one and it is about as user-friendly as it gets when it comes to a liquid. The applicator is great since it is made out of foam instead of bristles (which usually create stray marks on your lid) so it really helps create a smooth, even line. Also, any little mistakes or unevenness can be corrected if you go over the liner with some matching shadow on an angled brush, which also helps with the longevity as well. My only complaint is that it isn't totally budge-proof and I feel it could have the tendency to run if it gets wet or rub off. Overall, very happy with this pencil alternative and highly recommended.
Great liquid eyeliner. Easy felt tip applicator that makes applying it easy, especially for beginners. Long lasting, too.
This is my HG eyeliner! I have been using this for years and I just keep rebuying it. The tip on it makes it extremely easy to apply, although after a while the felt istarts to shed slightly and makes it harder to apply. It's actually good because it lets me know when I should replace it. I use this on the top of my eye and an Annabelle pencil eyeliner on the bottom. I find that during the day I have to reapply the Annabelle one, but the Revlon stays on all day! Love this eyeliner, it makes it easy to get a straight thin line.
I never thought this day would come...I have finally found my HG eyeliner!!! I've tried so many eyeliners and all of them faded, smudged, flaked, or were way too hard. So, when I was at the grocery store and saw they had $3.00 off all Revlon products, I snatched this up. My only complaint is that the handle of the wand is too long; I'd like it to be a bit shorter so I could have more control over it. But, other than that, it is pretty easy to apply, long lasting, and most importantly non-smudging! I WILL buy this again!
I just got this a few days ago. I was originally looking for the L'Oreal liner everyone says is so great but I couldn't find it at the store. I got this liner instead in hopes that it would work better the one by Maybelline.
The tip for this liner is too sharp so I tried to make it a bit softer but bending it, which didn't really work all that well; bending only flattens the tip and makes it hearder to use.
The color is really black and matte at first, later on it fades to gray. That's probably the worst thing about it. I have to reapply it at least 3 times over the same line in order to ensure that it won't fade significantly. That process takes way too long since you have to wait for it to dry between "coats" (just like nail polish). Plus, applying over the same line, precisely more than once is pretty difficult - so that makes this a very high-maintenance liner.
At first I thought that I liked this liner, but I have changed my mind. It's not efficient when it fades so significantly, and I hate touching up products because it never looks as defined and fresh as when it's first applied. So I wouldn't repurchase this again. I will look for the L'Oreal liner or try a different brand.
Update/TIP: I tried using this liner again today and noticed that when I applied it all the color had faded. It looked like I was using dirty mascara water on my upper lid. It was disgusting until I shook the tube and realized that was the problem. You are supposed to shake the tube really well since it contains one of those small balls (like in some nail polish bottles), that helps mix the product in case it separates. After doing this and trying again the liner was much darker and better.
Like some reviewers have commented below, after a while this liner fades. Even the deepest black colour (I don't remember what number/name the shade is) fades to a sheer gray-ish colour. I usually have to go over it several times or fill in with a gel liner afterward. I like the consistency, which is not too thick and not too runny. It really "stays". I used it on my top eyelashes and usually anything that is put too close to the inner corners will smudge and come off, but not this one. The wand is easier to work with than a pen or a slanted brush. I've had it for a couple of months now and it hasn't developed a funky smell. If only this would stay true black, it would've been my HG. But since I prefer dramatic and classic black, this only gets 3 lippies from me.
Doesn't stay on for very long, the black is actually a bluish off-black, and it smears terribly. I've had better luck with Rimmel liquid eyeliner to be honest.
This is my first review on MUA but I felt I owed it to this eyeliner to write about it. I have been though many, many different eyeliners - from Bobbi Brown to Cover Girl and they all smear on me....all of them. I thought it would be IMPOSSIBLE to find an eyeliner that did not smudge. The Bobbi Brown gel wasn't too bad but by 4 pm I would look like a raccoon - and to make it worse, my jars dried out within a month. A teacher at the school where I work always had perfectly lined eyes that NEVER smudged so I asked what she was wearing. She named another drugstore brand of liquid liner. I went to purchase it but the store I was in didn't have it, so I picked up this one. WOW. It doesn't smudge or smear on me at all - it's like a miracle! It is very easy to apply and the wand is easy to control. The tip is a little hard but I've just learned to be gentle and it's fine. I am thrilled I found this eyeliner and unless something drastically changes in the near future, this definitely is my HG eyeliner! I am somewhat floored that I've had better luck with a drugstore brand versus a top of the line eyeliner but there you have it!
