Yes and I mean YES, I would def. re-purchase this little drugstore gem. This has got to be THE best gel eyeliner hybrid pencil I have used. So many reasons to love this line of eyeliners but mainly, for me at least, this STAYS on my waterline :) Let me count the ways I love this pencil: A truly pigmented intense black, smooth like butter, long wearing, cheap, and most importantly it stays on my waterline. Yes tis true, you do have to sharpen quite often and sometimes it can be hard to draw a straight line on upper lash line (due to it's butter like consistency) BUT for under 6 buck a pop, I do not mind the sharpening. I end up using my Clinique cream liner for upper line or if in a hurry will use this as well but the line is not as thin as with a cream liner. I have used it all, super high-end pencils, loose kohls and even an eyeliner from Pakistan, and yet this gets the job done better than anything. I waited months to review this pencil because I truly wanted to try it under several circumstances before professing my undying love for it and yup I am in love :) I have these in all the colors they are available: black (true intense black), brown (basic brown, but wish it had a bronze sheen), teal (kinda of a grayish teal with metallic finish), green (beautiful hunter green color with metallic finish), strong slate ( gorgeous gunmetal silver with metallic finish), blue (lovely denim blue with metallic finish), purple (more like a black purple without the somewhat metallic finish on the other colors) and finally olive (pretty warm olive color with metallic finish). Once more, I am in love with these pencils and look forward to more colors.....
I have tried just about every kind of black eyeliner from Urban Decay 24-7 to Milanli liqui'ed eye liner (which irritates the hell out of my eyes when places on my water line and by the way I don't have sensitive eyes!) Rimmel Black kohl, l'oreal liquid pencil, Maybelline and a Arabic kohl brand called Rani, still one of my favorites, but this eye liner is great! smooth very black and doesn't really irrate my waterline, but stays on well I usually set it with a little black powder. Really like this purchase.
The key to these liners, is to put them in the fridge before sharpening. I know it may seem tedious but it was suggested online and I think it works wonders. These are very soft liners but putting a little chill on them helps, you won't lose as much product when you sharpen them. (FYI putting this liner in the fridge prior to sharpening it dried it out!) Anyway I find liners, especially Deepest Black to be fantastic, it is very dark and it stays put, they all do!
the color is really intense and i like the texture. however, it's too soft so i wasted so much of the liner when i tried to sharpen it. i still can't sharpen it like other pencil.
Purchased based upon reviews. Went home, tried it n loved it. Great pigmentation, applied smooth n easily. Made my usually shaky n much "touched up" cat eye look its blackest, most precise and professional ever. Hard to remove tho. & I woke up the next morning with myleft eye glued shut. Conjunctivitis symptoms galore.Turns out to be blepharitis,had to toss my mascara and cut the pencil in half n toss contaminated portion. I know my doc says its too creamy/oily for my sensitive eyes, but that cat eye was EPIC. So I'm saving the bottomhalf for another time when my eyes are less sensitive, n just plan to keep it off my waterline... Although I wont be repurchasing, I'd absolutely recommend it. Sensitive eyes proceed with caution.
Thank you guys for the reviews. That's why I bought this. This liner is the best I've used so far. It's very easy to apply. It's an intense black so I have to be very lighthanded. My only gripe is that I have to wipe the excess from below my eyes with a q-tip around 2pm. Haven't found an eyeliner though that doesn't have this issue. It is so cheap. I'll probably buy additional colors as well.
I have it in the colour Fierce Blue. It's super pigmented, glides on easily and is a pleasure to use, however...It smudges quite a bit, even when setting with a powder. I'm not sure if it's just this colour but meh...I would most likely buy again because the colour is so lovely, but I prefer the Prestige Waterproof Eyeliners.
I read such raving reviews about this eyeliner, also it's just being released here in Australia and was on sale for 20% off, soo naturally I just had to go and buy it. This review is for the Total Intensity Liner in general.
When I swatched this on in store I was really impressed already, but I contained myself really well and said I will only buy 2 and thats it(I'm sort of annoyed now, because I want all 8 colours).
These are extremely smooth and buttery which makes smudging a breeze but makes sharpening them a little hard! It goes on slightly like a gel liner, but after about 30 seconds, it sets and dries and you just cant budge it which is fantastic.
The colours are fantastic and well pigmented, does not fade, flake or smudge once it's set. If you like Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner pencil in Zero, I would say, Prestige Total Intensity Liner in Deepest Black is probably it's equivalent at a much cheaper price, and as for Aussies who dont know about Urban Decay or have no access to it, I'd say go out and get this.
I got this in Deepest Black and Strong Slate at the moment, but I would be getting the Bold Brown and Fierce Teal soon. This liner just makes my Dior pencil liner look like crap! Seriously!
I wear the contact lens and i love the intensity of this liner! it's the best and *the same* of Chanel khol pencil! perhaps more of this! :D
ive written rave reviews for the other prestige total intensity eyeliners. i donn't use black that much i use navy, plum, and dark green more. HOWEVER. this is the DARKEST. MOST PIGMENTED black eyeliner EVER. including the new urban decay 15 anniversay perversion eyeliner. these eyeliners are the best things ever!. and i know people complalin about them being too soft and too thick. however, i always easily get a thin line. but it is because i've been working with the pencil liner or years. and consider myself quite skilled at it (: i hold it at a certain angle with very easy light lines. and i assure you my eyeliner line is NOT thick! so if you'relooking for a thin line these DO WORK.
another thing you can do is you can take a flat and thin top eyeliner brush (used for gel liner) and brush it against the pencil and apply. you might go" why dont' i just get a gel liner then"
1. pencil eyeliners to me are ust softer and more subdued. i just REALLY preer them over gel so it's preference.
2. these have teh lasting power of any gel liner i've ever had.
3. worth the hassle for the pigmentation, staying power, and the color. i have brown eyes and i feel as if these prestige eyeliners were made for me!
using this method you might get a nicer line
PLEASE. TRY. THIS. OUT.
