It's my first try at a non-pencil form eyeliner, and I absolutely love it! I've used all brands of pencil eyeliners, but I think I'll never go back, EVER! It actually doesn't really take too much time to apply IMO, at least much easier than I had expected, and I look like I was born with bigger eyes. I am not sure black would work for other eye colors, but for my AAB dark brown eyes and black eyelashes, it's awesome. The first week I started using this, I actually wake up every morning excited at the thought of "having naturally large eyes". However, it does smudge a bit at the end of the day, probably after about 6 hours or so, so I usually apply a bit more powder under my eyes to prevent that. The texture is very very fine, as can be expected from LM. Great product!
I absolutely LOVE this eyeliner. I have been using this for 4 years and I wouldn't use anything else. It is expensive but lasts a long time and stays put. I also bought the flat eyeliner brush and I loved the way the saleswoman applied it.
This is the best eyeliner!! It really brings your eyes out and once you get it on, it won't smudge at all. You have to buy the LM flat brush to go with it, which is quite pricey but worth it. The downside, it takes a fair bit of practice to learn how to apply this properly and it can be frustrating. Also, since it stays on so well it can be difficult to get off so you need a good eye makeup remover. Despite the negatives, it is still the best eyeliner I have used and I will continue to use it. I have never had so many compliments on my eye make-up since I started using this product!!
The makeup artist showed me how to line the inside of my upper lid with this, and it really brought out the almond shape of my eyes - not always obvious as my peepers are very deep-set and almost hooded. I love eye makeup but as you can't really see my eyelids (apparently also a problem for Asian women) I never really know where to put it so it shows. This method of application seems to be the answer! I nearly didn't buy the liner as I couldn't believe I'd be able to do it myself, but with the right brush (LM eyeliner) I can just about do it, although I almost always manage to get it in my eye, which is a bit of a problem as I wear lenses. But I'm persevering, and getting better. Tempted to invest in either the aubergine or green versions, thought they might be good for my hazel eyes...
I have been using this liner for close to 2 years now and it still remains my one and only HG for eye liners. Though there are a few good ones out there (BB and MAC gel), I find this to be much better for it's staying power. I have oily skin and because of that, a lot of other gel or kohl liners just make me look like a racoon. This LASTS and LASTs. No smudging or budging. Another great thing is that it can look like a liquid liner.
I use a drop of Visine and a flat or angled brush. I swish it around and apply it onto my lash line for a gloriously glam look. I have a look of full lashes without mascara. Considering it's been 2 years and going with one liner, this is ridicously affordable. You may pay $20++ but it lasts you for years. continued >>
OMG there is a reason why this got so many good reviews. what can i say other than i will never EVER use another black eyeliner again although i do like to use my fave Cheanel Aqua Crayon in black as well. But this one rocks!!! It stays put and everyone has said my eyes are so beautiful and they can't tell why....it makes my eyes bigger and brighter!!!!!!!!
This eyeliner is miraculous! I recently had a makeover and, among all the really nice products the MA used, this is the one that really "wowed" me. With only a few dabs of the liner beneath my upper lashes, my eyes suddenly had definition and my lashes appeared thicker--without applying one drop of goopy mascara. I love it and will definitely buy it again!
This along with the LM flat liner brush are an essential part of my daily MU routine. Stays put, looks great.
My HG liner... and I wasn't at all into eyeliner before I found this. I dampen my brush (I use the LM flat eyeliner brush), swirl it in the pan until it forms a pasty consistency, and swipe the brush a few times on the back of my hand to remove the excess. Then I look down into a magnified mirror, lift my eyelid up gently, and push & wiggle the end of the brush right into the base of my lashes and work my way across the lashline. I find that the product dries quickly but not so fast that you can't swipe away any errors. I love the look this stuff gives me - nice definition to my eyes, adds depth to my lashes, but isn't as dramatic as a big streak of liquid liner. Plus, the line absolutely does NOT budge all day/night, but comes off easily when I cleanse. Awesome stuff.
This a very versatile product, and I use it for a natural day look (by just applying to the base of my lashes, and also for my smokey eyes at night (by lining above as well). Plus, this is one of the few eyeliners that stays put on my oily lids all day long. It doesn't end up in the crease, but right where I put it at 6:30am. This eyeliner is a pain to get used to, but absolutely worth it. It took me a while to get the hang of, but I can now apply just as fast as I could with my pencil, and with markedly better looking results. My HG eyeliner.
