I love this product! The packaging is cute. It's easy to hold. The applicator is just right for me. I like the effect when it dries up because it's not glossy at all. There's a slight burning sensation though...other than that, this eyeliner is perfect!

Not good. Going back to my Clinique liquid eyeliner, which is easy to apply and causes me no irritation. I have extremely sensitive eyes.
Pros
-Nice dark brown color
-Stays put

Cons
-Burns my eyes even before application! Just holding the applicator near them caused stinging. My eyes were red seconds after application.
-It was difficult for me to draw a nice line, but I'm not an eyeliner pro.

Dang! I like so many things about this product, but the "Con" below trumps all the good stuff:

PROs:
- black color has nice pigmentation
- applicator is not difficult to work with
- affordably priced
- Prestige has some great products, especially for eyes

Wow, right?! These sure make it sound like a HG product for me! But there's a problem...and for me it's a game changer (not in a good way...)

CON:
- it itches/burns on application. I used it on my upper lid, for a cat-eye line, but noticed that moments after application I felt an uncomfortable irritation. The first couple of times I ignored it and the sensation seemed to fade (or I acclimated to the discomfort?) As time went on, I found myself avoiding use of the product due to the sensation and the possible ramifications. I never applied it to my waterline, but I can imagine that might have produced a more painful experience.

I do not have particularly sensitive skin so this result is surprising to me. I see here that about 15% of reviewers are having this issue, and I hate to say I'm in that disappointed minority. I hope that Prestige will examine the formulation to determine what is causing this effect for a significant number of users.

The bottom line is that the irritation makes me wonder about the safety of my eyes and skin, and I'm drawing the line there (no pun intended!) After all, it's great to look pretty -- but my health trumps makeup any day!

This eyeliner made my eyes burn. It was painful. Obviously wouldn't repurchase.

Been using the same one in black for quite a while now. Zero problems other than it will come off very easily if you rub your eyes, or with a bit of water. But in that regard, it's easy to clean off. Dries quick. Staying power is bad. But at least it's semi-cheap. The brush was great, it didn't break. Easy as hell to put on. If it had better staying power it would be 5/5.

My go to for cat eyes!

I hadn't done a lot of cat eyes in awhile and was in the mood and realized my UD liquid liner that I had for ages was just about used up (or had expired). So I looked around for a cheapie but goodie, and all you ladies had good things to say about this one. Plus, I had been wanting to try out a Prestige product. I really like this liner. I like brushes- not felt tip pens, and this is sorta a hybrid. I can make smooth lines with barely any skips, and I can really go far into my inner corners and still be precise. I love how easy it is to create wings (maybe I'm better with them now, though). This product is one of my go tos in my morning routine. Its small, quick to use and gives great results. I like the formula and have only seen the tiniest hints of creasing- but nothing major. I'd suggest this liner to anyone, and I'm thinking of trying their other colors in the future.

I have bought numerous liquid eyeliners in black from prestige and I love them. They go on well, stay put, and are DARKER than others I've tried. I haven't ever had any burning with them either.

I do notice this comes off with just water easier than their total intensity line, but this one dries matte and is easier to use. I recently picked up their pen liner, and a ton of pencils, white liquid and like 4 back ups of this when it went on clearance.

Now as for the white alone (there is no individual spot for the white liner called "Popstar") it's a bit crumblier. I tried to get the less crumbly one at the store but when applied it's not 100% opaque. It's my first white liner so I don't know how much better other brands would be, but loving Prestige liquids I tried it. It's ok just kind of difficult for me to achieve even and opaque lines on both sides. So for the white I'd give more like a 3 but for the black a 5.

Update: The white got kind of thick and foamy quickly...I'm going to return that one. I also had problems with the pen style as well, but I love the black liquid and pencils.

I really love liquid eyeliner in general, and have tried a variety of brands in the past. I came across this item in an Ulta store, and have never regretted buying it since. It is all I use. I love it- it doesn't smudge like other brands and it stays on all day long! It applies smoothly and easily. I don't know what I would do without it!
