Love this eyeliner!, My friend over-heard my complaints about how many eyeliners i've tried from mac to bourjois and how none of them work on me and always leave me with raccoon eyes. She went out and bought me this eyeliner for my birthday, and i've been using it everyday since..
It rarely smudges, when i get home after an 8 hour day, its some-what faded but it hasn't left a mark! My HG eyeliner, for sure.
Although I gave rave reviews on the gel, I found this one is even better. The gel did wind up leaving me with smears but this I find, although, not perfect, holds up much better. Unfortunatley, I found this out as a lot of tears were shed at the loss of a friend, I thought for sure I had those unsightly racoon eyes so went to freshen up and not 1 smear, so this my new fave Eyeliner, good luck:)
This eyeliner has good staying power but broke in several places before I even got to use it. Every time I reached for this eyeliner a good chunk of the stick was broken off and I would stick it back in and use it. It does last a lot better than a lot of drugstore eyeliners though.. maybe it was my eyeliner that was damaged? Either way, I think I'm gonna stick to my fav eyeliner which is styli-style.
*My everyday eyeliner
I've been using this eyeliner for YEARS.... Literally. ..
It comes on smooth and pretty bold, and it doesnt smear. Good ish.
Quite good, wonderful pigmentation, stays on for quite a while. As I bought this quite recently, we shall see how long it lasts without drying out.
But overall, very very happy with it.
Very pleased: application is easy, color stays true, and it lasts until I remove it. And it's priced right!
ahhhhh i LOVE LOVE LOVE this eyeliner! it works great with my skin. its one of the best if not the best eyeliner i own, super dark, glides on super easy. well so buy again! bought for $12 in NZ as everything here is super expensive.. but it is actually great, especially for a maybelline product, not usually a big fan of theirs :] x
This one will do in a pinch when I don't want to splurge for Quo's, or the store is out of colorstay in my shade. It's highly average in performance. Decent color, passable wear time, blendable. I've always found it a bit on the tug-n-pull side, and it dries out and breaks fairly easily. It's a purchase- if- I- must product.
If I could give this 4 and 1/2 stars I would, it is just about a 5. It is a very decent eyeliner. It very soft and smooth. It applies evenly, no skipping. It does not smudge or run. I have the color 'jade' and it is absolutely gorgeous!! It works for lining both my top and bottom lashes, without looking too dark on the bottom, or too light on the top (I'm kinda picky about that, hehe!). I got mine for about $4 (U.S.) and that is pretty awsome for a good quality liner. The only reason I don't give it 5 is because it doesn't last quite as long as some other liners I've tried. However, it does last about 8 hours or so before it starts to fade, so that's pretty decent I would say ;)
I'm currently using black at the moment and have purchased this eyeliner twice in pewter in the past as well. With pewter, both times after having the product for several weeks, the tip of the liner became very hard/dry and tugged at both the upper and lower lash lines. I always had to moisten it up by running the tip of it on my palm first. Even so, it was still a bit resistant as it didn't go on very easily or smoothly, especially when applied on the upper lids. However, the staying power lasted pretty well as it didn't smudge/budge unless you rubbed at your eyes, obviously. With the eyeliner in black, I've got to say that although they are of the same brand/line, I discovered that the formula for black differs greatly. The latter is way creamier and glides on much smoother than pewter. I believe because of so, the staying power is not as good as pewter as it doesn't last as long and it tends to smear at the inner corner of both my lower lash line causing a bit of a "raccoon" smudge. The black liner also applies on almost in a "sharpie" kind of way, giving a harshly lined look. It also doesn't blend well to soften the lines since it's so creamy. Although the pewter didn't glide on as smoothly, I don't recall getting the harsh sharpie look from it. I'm not quite satisfied with either black or pewter but I probably would re-purchase pewter, (but not black) only until I find the next decent priced, long-lasting, easier-gliding eyeliner available.
