I got this in Black Brown and I absolutely love this product! It goes on so smoothly and accurately, it is also very easy to smudge and blend using the blender connected to the other side. When you sharpen this product the end doesn't break off or anything, it sharpens with great accuracy. I use this to line my eyes and fill in my eyebrows.
One tip I can give when using this is to draw a line or two on your hand and run the blender across it and then use what's on the blender on my eyebrows and lower lashline for very natural, subtle enhancement of my brows and lashes.
I will continue to repurchase this product again and again. It's great for travel and/or use on the go because the caps stay on tight!
I recently bought a couple of these because I used to use these years ago and loved them. Tried one again this morning and realized that I've been spoiled by high-end makeup. I had to press pretty hard to get a discernible line, and I don't like having to do that. I loved the shade I used (charcoal), but I've found it much easier to get a nice, dark line with a liner brush and wet eye shadow than with this. Plus, with eye shadows, you have an infinite color range and this only comes in a few shades. It's an adequate liner, but nothing beyond that.
This smears all over the place, worse than any other eyeliner I've tried. Even when I only put it on my top lid, it ends up down below my bottom lashes. Weird. The "black" also isn't black-black. It's more of a very dark grey.
My HG eyeliner. I have been wearing this for many years. People often ask me what kind of eyeliner I am wearing. I don't wear colored liner too much, I always buy this in black.
The secret to using this is I make sure to sharpen it using a metal sharpener, then apply a thin line. It doesn't matter if the line is totally perfect, b/c I go back and use the smudger to blend it out. Then I go back and darken the line more closely to the lid a little more. This always lasts all day for me.
I have some other liners like MAC and Dior sitting around, that I never seem to reach for, this one always does the trick.
I got this in 'mink,' a medium brown. This went on smoothly but disappeared within 30-60 minutes! I reapplied and had the same experience. Very poor product. Am returning.
Love this eyliner. I 36 years old and have used this since I was 17. It is the only eyeliner I can use that doesn't melt on my skin. I have tried using others over the years, but always come back to this one.
A very lovely liner/smudger. It's soft and applies easily without any tugging. You will need a steady hand to avoid thick lines, which still in itself is difficult. I'm still practicing on how to apply a thinner line above my lashes, but if you're in a hurry and want that sultry, sexy, smoky look in less than five minutes then this is probably a good liner for you.
This is a great eye pencil,at a surprisingly low price.I bought mine for 2.99.The smudger with this pencil is quite reasonable to give a smoky look,my only complaint is ...that it does not last all day.Overall, for the price the product is good and i will repurchase this !!!!!!!!
this is a really great eye pencil, i'd say it's runner up to the revlon colorstay. i much prefer the regular pencils over self-sharpening ones, i like to sharpen to a nice precise point before application. but that's just my preference. it's suprisingly pigmented for for being such an inexpensive product, i got mine for about $3 at kroger. the smudger on the other side is decent, but if you really want to soften a harsh line i recommend using a brush. also if you're looking for an budge-proof eyeliner, i wouldn't go for this as it tends to smudge a bit under the lower lashes after a few hours. but then again, i personally like a little smudge, it looks less harsh. definitely repurchase this again and again.
I don't know what happened but these are really hard to get on, I have to press down pretty hard to get color out or I have to heat it to get the color on my eyes without pushing it too hard.
