I purchased this when it was on sale/clearance at CVS. I did not wear liner on a daily basis but wanted something to quickly create fine lines to create the illusion on lashes but not necessarily create a "line" if that makes any sense. I have hooded eyelids so thicker lines do not suit me well. I did not have high hopes for it...don't know why I bought it then?? Anyways I did not care for it initially and forgot about it for a week. When I tried it later I started to LOVE it. That seems to happen a lot with me. It creates such natural thin lines. I can't speak for the serum aspect of it but I think most people don't care for those claims anyways. It is long wearing on me and it gets real close to my lashes so it really gives the illusion of lusher lashes. It seemed to dry on me one day when I put it over eyeshadow (I guess it sort of clogged it) but then it came back to life and works great. I will buy this full price if I had because I feel incomplete when I don't use it but I know there are always sales on PF so I will pick up more when that happens.
Well I must be one of the odd ducks out, because I would not repurchase this eyeliner. Having used it several times now over the last few weeks, I am unfortunately not impressed.
The pen design itself and the accuracy of the tip I did really like, but the formula was neither bold enough nor fade-resistant (contrary to what others claimed to experience, perhaps due to a defect in the one I purchased?). The color I purchased was "black," and after looking at pictures I wish "ultra black" had been available. But even if the color were darker, the line does smudge and fade on me throughout the night. It's not terribly uncommon for liners to smudge on me, with my old standby Clinique
potted cream liner being one of the few to not give me that problem. But this faded fast and nearly completely. Totally unacceptable.
Wish it had worked out since, again, I do really like the pen's design and fine tip. Being new to liquid liners, I found this by far the easiest one to use. Bummer that the formula couldn't be better.
My new favorite liquid eyeliner!!!! I am normally not a fan or liquid because i prefer gel or cream liner. But, this is soooo easy to get a clean line!
I just tried Physician's Formula felt tip eye marker eye liner and hated it so i was not so sure about trying this one, but it is completely the opposite of the other one.
It is in the pen or marker form so their is no dipping and redipping necessary, and I love the tip because it is flexible enough to move along the shape of your eye without being too flimsy.
I love that it is also a lash boosting serum because i need it!
I have it in the brown so i definitely want to try it in the black!
Also the cap it very amazing it will really keep the moisture inside so it wont dry out....
I thought this was my HG liquid e/l: the brush is firm and comes to a fine point, making application a pleasure.
It creates a lovely precise line, allows for great control.
HOWEVER, it dries out after about a week of use!
I bought another tube, plus the brown shade, hoping maybe my tube was just defective. Nope. They're both drying out after just a few uses.
In fact, they start drying out even during application. While adjusting the line, I'll notice nothing is coming off the brush. I test it on my hand, and sure enough, it's dry as a bone. I keep having to recap, shake, and smoosh the brush to coax the color out, and even that doesn't really work.
Such a shame because this was perfect for my small eyes in every other way.
Next on my list: NYX's super skinny eye marker which is perpetually out of stock at Ulta.
(BONUS: I notice my lashes are thicker since using this along with the clear serum that came free with one of the liners).
I have this eyeliner in Black, Deep Brown and Ultra Black. The first two dry matte and the last one dries shiny. The best feature about this eyeliner is the fact that it does not smudge or transfer. The tip is very fine so you can achieve a nice thin/sharp line. The color is a bit on the lighter side but its great for a more natural look. The metal tube is quite chic and makes it seem like a more high end product. One problem with this product is that a sort of film ends up developing on the tip which gives the impression that the eyeliner has dried out. You'll need to clean the tip every now and then and it'll be like new again. In regards to the eyelash boosting properties, I would say you'll see a slight improvement in your lashes (i.e. more lashes) but nothing life changing. I do enjoy this eyeliner and I think the price is a bit high when its full price (up to 16.99$CAD which is close to the price of some mid range brands) so I would recommend waiting for a sale.
Totally awesome. All of a sudden, my lashes (I'm sure it's my age) turned skimpy and short. Stubs, like my husband's almost. In a week, I had a full eye of lashes again. Seriously. I wish I had taken before and after pictures.
I'm over 60, so I grew up with liquid liner and learned to line my lashes with the liner tight against the lashes. You can't do that with a crayon. I've always preferred a liquid or a great gel liner. This stylus liner is awesome. Makes a tight, perfect line.
I love this!!! Don't hesitate to buy it.
I just got this eyeliner after so many great reviews of it here, as well as on youtube. I was SO impressed with the quality of this eyeliner! It really makes eyelining EASY! It gives such a clean, straight line that looks extremely precise, with little effort! I have been using, and love, the L'oreal Carbon Black lineur Intense- but this might be my new favorite! Other felt tip/ liquid liners do not give a clean line like this does-- I love it! I usually do my liner thicker, with a wing - but for a clean, thin line- this is the product to use! HG quality ;)
Sooo this isn't the greatest eyeliner in the world but I'd purchase it again because it really makes my eyelashes grow longer!! Even my boyfriend noticed :)
Despite getting this in Ultra Black, I had to go over my line 3 times to get it the dark color I wanted. It goes on like water colors (where you have to keep going over the same area to get a deep pigmented color). Returned it the next day.
I wouldn't have bought this normally, Shoppers sells it for $17 so I used my points to get it since people have raved about it. I do think it's VERY easy to apply, more so than the typical ink-pot liquid liners. BUT I will not re-purchase this because it dries shiny, and I prefer a matte finish to my liquid liner. It's also a lot more money than I would usually spend on any makeup product.
