I picked this up at Ulta the other day after i failed to find the Milani liquify pencil in black (cvs was sold out) anyway I wanted to find a cheaper alternative to Urban Decay's 24/7 eyeliner so I picked this up. Not sure if it's a perfect dupe, but it gets the job done and so far I like it. I may buy it again but I also want to try other eyeliners out there, but for 5 dollars it's worth checking out
This is a great eyeliner for the waterline! I use it every day. It is very creamy so it is almost like gel liner in a stick. When you apply it it does not tug or pull hard on your skin. I do not normally apply this onto my upper lash line instead i just use gel liner on the top and this liner on my waterline. I find that if you dry your waterline a little bit with a tissue it will make this liner last longer. I am goning to try the waterproof eyeliner by prestgie and see if it is also a great eyeliner just like this one! The packaging is just standard pencil eyeliner. It is cheap and good. The one bad thing is i do not really see these very much in drugstores the only places i have found them are Rite Aid and also at Ulta. Yes this is a product you might have to search for but you will enjoy having this product!
Prestige's website dared me to compare this to my favorite department store liner, so I did. Just like the reviewer below, I too can't get this liner sharp enough to get a thin line. I like my eye liner super-thin! I'm not really into the super-thick line. And no, it's not my level of expertise because I can always get my MAC Powerpoint liner sharp enough. Or maybe it's not that I can't get the Prestige liner sharp enough, but the fact that it's so creamy it's impossible to get a thin enough line with. And another thing: This seems to smudge really easily. Sorry Prestige, you're just not MAC. But I will give it two lippies for going on smoothly without dragging or tugging.
I so wanted to love this product after reading a makeup blog that raved about it. I have long been a lover of Prestige cosmetics so I had high expectations. Well, unfortunately I can't say enough bad things about it. If I could give it no stars I would. Where do I begin?
First of all, I couldn't get the point sharp enough to draw a reasonably thin line. You'd have to have pretty big lids for a line that thick and I don't. But that's not even the biggest issue - The tip is so soft that it breaks off easily even with light pressure. It even broke off in my hands at one point and it only brushed my finger lightly. Worse is that it broke off on my eyelid and almost got into my eye. On top of all of that, I couldn't even draw a smooth line with it. It kept tugging and causing feathering. And I am very experienced at drawing a smooth line with a pencil liner as I've been doing it for 30 years with all kinds of liners, some even with soft tips but none that acted like this one!
I think the absolute worst thing about this liner is that it suddenly started to cause an allergic reaction the second (and final) time I attempted to wear it. Given that I am a contact lens wearer it almost made me unable to drive home that day because my eyes were so gunky and cloudy. Plus the irritation didn't go away right away. I wish I had read the reviews here before buying it or I'd have saved myself the awful experience.
Would you believe that the makeup blogger that raved about this pencil said she used to work for one of the big magazines and admitted that she was paid to rave about products she didn't like, but given that she was no longer employed there she was going to tell the truth now?....I should have known better than to believe that line, LOL.
Amazing. I used to think I had good liners...until I got this one. It glides on so smoothly, and it has great pigmentation. Less than $10 too!!
THIS IS THE BEST EYELINER! looks really pretty and works just as good as urban decay 24/7 very creamy works nice and really black color!
It was love at first swipe. Its so creamy and it goes on smooth.The color is the blackest ever-- Total Intensity indeed. The staying power is good too.
It does crease a bit after a long day. So you need an eye primer for this.
This is one of the best eyeliners I have ever tried in my life..
Well, if you are looking for a truly intense, dark, Long-Lasting black eyeliner, this is hands-down the best out there. I use it on my waterline as well as near upper lashes. It goes on so smoothly and it's so creamy, but it stays put! I even used this for my son on Halloween to do his mime makeup, over a base of white liquid makeup (powdered).. It went on so deep and intense....he looked great, and no smudges all night. I have used MANY eyeliners and nothing has worked like this.
For less than $5 bucks you can score this amazing, intense black eyeliner. It is the darkest pencil eyeliner I have ever bought/used. It is darker than Revlon luxurious color eyeliner, Urban Decay 24/7, Tarte and Korres pencil eyeliners, and Stila kajal eyeliner. The only con is that it smudges very easily, which works for me because I like that smokey eye look. Even though it can smudge, the color will last all day especially on your waterline. But if you prefer to have absolutely no smudging, I suggest you look towards creme/gel eyeliners, such as Stila smudgepot or my fave Black Radiance continuous creme eyeliner.
Love, love, love this eyeliner. I'm very impressed by the Prestige range of liners, for a dirt cheap brand they out-perform all of the drugstore and most of the high-end liners I've tried.
Like other reviewers have noted Deepest Black is a true black, intense and inky. The pencil is soft and glides on smothly and evenly. This sets reasonably quickly but if you work fast a precise and clean line can be smudged to a smokey finish. This lasts on me an entire day and evening without budging. I find that after half an hour in the fridge the pencil is easily sharpened to a good point.
A highly recommended product, and I'll be buying more colours in this range.
