I bought this because one of my favorite beauty gurus on Youtube recommended this product as a way to make winged/cat-eye liner much easier. It does make drawing a wing easier, giving me better control than many felt-tip liners. However, I find the narrow pen tip makes it tough for me to get a thick, dark line on my actual eyelid. It takes a lot longer for me using this narrow pen tip to get a line with the thickness I want.
Also, I don't know if I just got a bad one, but mine has a veeerrry strog odor. It's the strongest-smelling makeup product I own, and not in a good way. I won't be repurchasing.
Well this isn't HG material. I'll just do pros and cons
easy to use
thick or thin lines
easy to wing
never too shiny
smudges in inner corners easily
sometimes doesnt cover as much as id like
not as black as id like stil havent found anything back enough
I am in love with this eyeliner. I'll start with color. I had gotten a black one and it i just the most amazing thing ever. All the other ones are just as great quality but I had purchased the blackest black one and on me it turned out brown. On paper it turned out black. I was very confused. It happened to my cousin too but she didn't mind it so i gave it to her since that annoys me. If you don't close the cap correctly(hear the click) it could dry out. The felt tip can get dirty since its a pen but that doesn't affect the color in any way. I can create thick and thin lines. It is so easy to use. It stays on all day for my upper lashline. If i put t on my lower lashline it doesn't seem to stay but I rarely do that d it doesn't matter to me. I use this everyday for a day look since it doesn't come out too dark or bold do it doesn't create very bold looks but it gives you that sweet look. You could use it as a guideline since it is very easy to use and control. I am very picky about my eyeliners so when I find one I like it is like I found my missing half <3
I am surprised at the low rating! I have bought this pen twice because I absolutely love the felt tip on the pen!! I cannot find anything that works as well. I find it better than the L'Loreal Lineur Intense that everyone seems to rave about. I am more for the "muted cat eye" so I do not like intense black for my cat eye. So this actually fits me well. I will buy again :)
The package says, "glides on smoothly and wears for up to 16 hours." FALSE ADVERTISEMENT! It does neither. The colour isn't opaque or intense at all no matter how many times you go over it. Even if you wait 10+ minutes for it to dry, it comes right off with a dab of a tissue. Truly the worst liner I have ever tried.
For over-40 slightly crepey and partially droopy eyelids, this product is a no-no. It took several passes before I was able to achieve a decent line. Then, even after I thought it was dry, my eyelid's normal movement caused the line to fray, causing quite a mess. After a few more passes to correct the problem, I realized it was getting worse. After fixing my eyeshadow to cover the mistakes, I went over it with my Bobbi Brown gel liner in black. Once I got to work, my eyelids were super irritated. This might be a good product for 20-somethings and possibly for use under the eye and/or to refresh my liner during the day as an additional layer. Otherwise, skip it.
Really really surprised after reading the bad reviews on this product. I first bought this at the Revlon outlet in NYC...the first pen I had for about a year and it worked really well for me before the tip got a little fuzzy and dried out. Just bought a new one a month or so ago and have not had any problems. Each time I bought the darkest black and had no problems with the color. With a primer this thing lasts all day - may fade a little, but it works great for me.
UGH! I so wanted this to be an adequate replacement for higher end eyeliners. It's not. I got the colour "Blackest Black" and let me tell you...it's brown. And I'm only inferring that it's brown because I can't actually get it to apply to my eyelid. I've tried everything - clean, dirty, primed, unprimed, with eyeshadow and without. NOTHING makes it transfer. I do appreciate that it is relatively cheap (I got mine on sale for $9.49 CDN) and the applicator WOULD be nice if it actually applied to the lid and I like that it would be convenient to use because of the tip and the pen-like shape. But alas, this did not work for me and I will be returning it. Cheers!
I purchased this product and loved it for my everyday top-lid eyeliner. Unfortunately it ran out and I've been using a different liquid Revlon liner, which is terrible. This liner was matte, dark black, and lasted pretty long, except for the inner corner of my eye, where I tend to wipe my fingers throughout the day. I had no pigmentation problems with the shade "blackest black"
I don't like this at all. For a Colorstay product the colour does not stay. I bought it in black. I find it is very pigmented and does not dry out if you store it standing up with the cap pointed down. It's easy to apply. The reason I will not purchase this again is that I have oily eye lids and after about an hour worth of wear I have an eyeliner line on my upper lid. I wanted to try a liquid liner but with my oily lids I will go back to my usual routine of dark shadow, flat brush and Lise Watier Metamorfix.
