I have been experimenting with eyeliners lately. I love the look of black eyeliner when first applied but everyone I have tried until this one has smudged after several hours looking dreadful. I got this in a kit at sephora along with a brown liner from Stila. This stuff made it through a 90 degree day for over 8 hours with no smudging whatsoever! It was also easy to apply for a relative beginner like me.
THIS IS MY LIFE! It stays on all day, even after personal training and school etc, and the felt tip makes it super easy to apply! It doesn't smudge, it dries right away, and you don't need a primer to wear it! It is honestly something everyone should have!
Great eyeliner. It really has staying power and doesn't smudge. I bought it in black a while back and it lasted me a while, it didn't even dry up. I liked it so much that I went and bought it in the navy blue color. Unfortunately the blue one was horrible and it dried up right away. That was a huge bummer. Though I like the black, I'm not sure I'll ever re-purchase because i hated spending 20 bucks on it.
I have a love-hate relationship with this eyeliner. It is super easy to use, applies wonderfully, stays on throughout the day without smudging, but.... dries out so fast!!! If judging just on the finish and ease of use, this beats my Lancome Artliner. However, I have a real problem with this drying out quickly. When it does it's hard to apply when there is basically nothing coming out of the very tip of the liner. The $20 price tag wouldn't normally bother me but when this dries out in less than 2 months, it seems like a waste. I tried to look up package sizes online to see if the Artliner just has more product in it but couldn't find specific info. Still, I love the way the Stila liner looks so I end up buying another one if I don't have an artliner as a backup. I would say try to get it on sale since it may not last as long compared to other liquid liners.
Best liquid eyeliner I've tried
Very defined black
Makes perfect winged liners
Goes well on the water line
Stays all day & it's smudge proof
Itll keep you lookin fresh, no need to reapply.
I love the product, it's my favorite eyeliner.
$20 @ sephora in the US
This eyeliner withstood panicked tears and still looked perfect. (One wishes she could have said the same for the smoked eyeshadow on the lower lashline.) I love the applicator which can give a pinpoint line or a thicker cat eye with just a bit of angle adjustment. Intense black deserves the name.
This eyeliner is so true to its name. It stays on all day with no flaking or smudging. If you're an eyeliner junkie this Is for You! Some might complain about the price ($20) at sephora. But I figure if you're gonna pay almost $9 for a drug store eyeliner, just suck it up and pay a little more for a high quality like this. My only tiny problem with this is that the eyeliner is sort of shiny when dried. I like the matte black look much better. If anyone knows how to get a matte finish with this liner, please post!
I'm not sure what everyone is raving about. Got this in the mail today from amazon for 17 dollars which is pretty steep for eyeliner, but I was looking for a "water-proof" eyeliner that might be a little better than my usual go to, but this junk WIPED right off after only an hour of wear. so called waterproof eyeliner should NOT wipe off. I'm looking for heavy duty eyeliner that you need make up remover to take off.
I am of Asian descent and while I don't happen to have a monolid, I still do have very oily lids, so a lot - if not most - eyeliners on the market smudge on me within a few hours. I've found that the best eyeliner/mascara for me has to be ones where they dry into a hard, plasticky texture... so it would be impossible for oils to dissolve them and cause smudging.
This eyeliner turned out to be one of those.
It goes on quite watery and smells a bit like lacquer. In fact I think it is a type of lacquer... it dries almost instantly into a lacquer-y texture. So even though this colour I have is called "Intense Black", the end result is actually black with a slight sheen.
But this lacquer-y stuff is exactly why it never smudges on my lids. Because it dries into this hard, crusty surface, it never melts or gets dissolved by my oily lids. Instead, if it does come off, it flakes off rather than smudges. And I haven't had it flake off much even after a 12 hour stint with it on.
Truly is a HG for anyone with oily lids.
Only thing is I notice this pen tip isn't very good. Frays and dries up really quick. Not really ideal if you are gonna be spending a long time drawing your eyes trying to learn how to perfect the art of liquid eyelining!
Love this eyeliner to the moon and back! I bought it on a whim one day when I had a sephora gift card and I kinda regret it now because I'll have to shed out another 30$ to get my hands back on it! It seriously does not budge, and it is jet black. I've heard people compare it to the Maybelline pen eyeliner but I find this one a million times better !!
