I'm puzzled by the good reviews- this didn't work for me. It was too watery & not black enough. It also smudged & flaked throughout the day. Waste of money.
this is my favorite liquid liner!
it's super long lasting and I have very oily lids. also, it is a very true black! i kind of wish the tip was a bit bigger, but other than that this is my HG liquid liner!
My favorite liquid eyeliner! It doesn't smudge on my oily lids and stays on all day. However I find it's really difficult to re purchase this product since no stores have it in regular black anymore.
I bought this when my Jordana eyeliner ran out. I like this because it has a good staying power and is decent for its price. However, i dislike the ''too sharp'' tip (it makes it harder to draw lines). I guess it will get better when i use it longer so that the tip can soften up.
This is a good product. I do find that if I wear it every day for weeks I do get the 'burning' that other reviewers have mentioned; however, I haven't found anything that can stay on as effectively as this. You can put it on in the morning and when you come home from work you can be sure the line is still there. The black is also nice and deep. It's also a great price.
HG! revlon is one of my fave ds brands. I have it in black. When I first picked it up i HATED it. i thought the brush hurt wayy too much and if i went over the line i made, it would kinda disappear? When i ran out of my other liquid liner and used this i fell in love. you just have to use it right. First of all, when you first buy it, get a tissue and kinda mash the tip on there to soften the tip. and about the erasing line thing.. this formula doesn't dry that fast, so you have to let it dry before you draw over it again. if you use it right, it never moves at all and lasts all day!
I have bought this product a couple of times, and I think if you know how to work with it, then it is HG material.
The packaging is alright, though if you're not used to the somewhat fat handle(fat as liquid eyeliner handles go), it can be awkward at first.
I see the reviews with regards to burning?
Well, when you first open the product and use it, the brush will be very hard, and even I feel some burning evertime I open a new package. But I think that it's the hard brush, not the formula.
Continuing as, after a day or two, the burning no longer occurs when I put the eyeliner on. Over a couple of days, the very tip of the brush will wear down, and become softer and make application much, much easier. The application can be very thin, or really thick, in ease.
For the formula, Blackest Black is... somewhat accurate. Why do I say somewhat? Because yes, the formula sweeps on very opaque and dark, but I find if the bottle is left alone for a period of time, and you try to use it without shaking, or moving the bottle, the liner comes on quite liquidy, and translucent. This problem is easily solved by sticking the cap back on, and gently shaking the bottle for a second.
When applying, it comes on like a liquid, and dries very nicely, and quicky. Though the only con to the speedy drying is that if you mess up, and try to quickly fix it: odds are you'll just smudge it, and should probably get a Q-tip later(with eye-makeup remover on it!) and gently wipe off your accident. And also, a bottle can last you forever, and I have not had any incidents regarding the bottle drying out. (:
Overall, a very nice product for the price. You just have to be prepared. :)
this is my faaavorite drugstore liquid eyeliner! i've only tried it in black shimmer(not a big fan) and black, but let me tell you, the black is soooo black! when they say black, they mean it. it doesn't come out watery at all and tip is so soft (doesnt dry up). it is an easy applicator. whats not to love? =)
Where to start...overall, this is a decent product. Let me start with the cons first since that is usually what we (at least I am) are concerned about when we look at reviews for a potential purchase. The two things about this liquid eyeliner that bothered me were:
(1) the tip of the brush was SO HARD, and
(2) the burning.
I have noticed other reviewers have experienced this while others haven't, so maybe it's a sensitivity thing. Anyways, since this was my first liquid eyeliner, this made me almost never want to use one ever again. I felt like I was going to poke my eyes out through my eyelid since it's so pointy...BUT, now that I have mastered the art of applying liquid eyeliner with this, it's not as bad. It doesn't change the fact that brush is hard though lol.
As for the pros, like others have mentioned, it stays on pretty well. However, I wouldn't purchase this again due to the burning. (I also thought all liquid eyeliners are bound to irritate my eyes...so glad I'm wrong)
+1 lippie for stay on power, +1 for no smudge, and +1 for aesthetics of my eyes
(and of course -1 for the brush and another -1 for the burning)
WOW! It is ironically called the blackest black, and it is. There is no shearness to this liner at all, you get that great black liner from the high end brands with a nice low cost. Also the filt tip is so tiny and firm that it makes it easier to get the exact look that you want. I will buy again!
