I do a wing with liquid liner almost every day, I've tried various different liquid liners. I wouldn't recommend using this for wing or everyday liner. It runs and rubs off easily; definitely not waterproof. The best thing about it is the brush; super thin. I use this liner if I want to touch up my wing if it rubs off, or for touch ups on the liner I have already put on. The pigment is watery; I needed to apply more than one layer for it to show up.

For how cheap this was, I initially purchased it thinking I would end up chucking it, but for the price, it was worth trying. Well, I'm on my third one and I just bought another!

This is sort of a runny, liquidy liquid liner (genius description, I know). Before you run it along your lid, you should rub the excess off on the side, or else you're going to end up with a blip of eyeliner where you don't want it. For such a little pot, it has plenty of eyeliner in it too.

It has a brush tip, that sometimes splits apart, but usually you can still get a crisp, defined line with it. It has a thinner brush than the NYC liquid liner, and the part you hold is much shorter. It has a matte finish, and while it doesn't stay completely intact on my oily, hooded eyes for 9 hours, it stays damn good enough, and can be easily solved by running a pencil liner over it, or by running black shadow along it. It doesn't flake off, it merely fades to a slightly less pigmented black. If you have very oily lids, or super hooded lids, I would stay away from this - it can take a bit to dry, and if your eyes are too hooded, it can easily transfer and smudge everywhere. It doesn't completely withstand my watery eyes at the corner either, so you either learn to wipe the smudgey bits away, like I do, or you steer clear of this, because it's not waterproof.

Overall, if you're learning to use liquid liner, this is a pretty cheap starting point, or if you like short, brush tip liquid liners, and don't have hooded, oily lids, I would say give this a try.

I love this eyeliner.. It is probably the best that I've ever bought. The price is great and the quality is awesome, it is one of the only eyeliners that I can get so close to my eye without having that space. It's great, I always buy it after I run out. I love it!

This is an ok liner, considering the price there is the N.Y.C. Liquid liner that is better than this. This liner is shiny and takes forever to dry. So long, in fact that after doing my whole face (I do eyes first) I then went to powder my undereye concealer with a fluffy brush and some of this got on it and smeared black all under my eye. The NYC liner is matte and dries fast. Also, the brush on this liner leaves lots to be desired. Again, it is cheap but there's better out there to be had for the same price. I love eyeliner and doing winged eyes so I have been trying the drugstore offerings lately. I will not repurchase this.

A better liquid (non waterproof) liquid eyeliner is LA Colors for $1.50 at Dollar General. But I use ELF e/s base & eyeliner sealant w all of my non waterproof liquid liners (haha these 2), I normally don't fool w non waterproof liquid liners coz my eyes are so watery/rheumy but now that I can seal my eyeliners it gives me more options. This is a lot less opaque than LA Colors, I admit I am a little disappointed & I can't go over it once I've sealed it or it ruins the e/s (I need to go over this w MAC Carbon b4 I put the seal on), it's an extra step I don't have to take w LA Colors (or waterproof liquid/gel liners). It also is important to do a few thin coats w this letting it dry rather than 1 thick gloppy coat & brush the excess off on the edge of the bottle between coats. I don't get how the ladies in the pix got such opaque results? I get that kind of results w Milani Infinite if any1 is interested in an ultra opaque thicker liquid DS eyeliner (waterproof too!) or any gels even ELF creme liner. I'm kind of meh about this liquid sorry ELF wanted to luv this so bad!!

honestly am quite disappointed with this because it takes FOREVERRR to dry. I have to keep my eyes slightly closed for a while to let it dry and not smudge. However, I liked the brush - it made me feel like eyeliner was easier to apply than usual.

I tried this product on the spur of the moment at CVS. I had planned to buy another (more expensive though highly rated) eyeliner when I saw some millennials looking at the display. The clerk said yes, this was now very popular. So I went for it. At two bucks, what could I lose? Well I have to tell you I used it today for the first time, and it's sensational.It went on easily (I am pretty good at eyeliner having started using it before most of you were born - think Cleopatra!). It lasted all day, without deterioration. I have a good remover so I'm not worried about taking it off. People, run, don't walk to buy this great value.

Interesting story... I've been trying to find a good drugstore liquid black liner. When I found this one in a set (with two other glitter liners I love) I was super excited that it cost less than 3 dollars.

When I finally tried it, it did not stay on the eyelid at all. The consistency was super watery and it was literally like trying to put oil on water. Even if I shook it, let one coat dry, wiped my eyelid etc. it would not stay on. I realized the formula was garbage. Such a shame, because the brush was really nice. But when I swatched it on my hand, it didn't have the same effect and was like a normal liner.

I was super disappointed until I had an idea and took my wet n wild h2o proof liner(which I hated until now) and put the elf brush in it. Surprisingly, the cap fit perfectly :D I now love using it. And for the elf one, well, it belongs in the trash.
