You can't go wrong with this eyeliner. Great for creating a variety of looks, whether for a more dramatic nighttime look or a casual office wear look. It is long-lasting, does not smudge, and is an easy to apply black eye-liner. I would definitely purchase again.

I was contemplating between Clinique Quickliner and this one and based on the reviews here I bought this for my waterline. But it doesn't work for me for the waterline. I've been using Bare Minerals Round the clock one and it works great I'm just scared to take the pencil close to my waterline and my eyeball. I wanted an automatic one. (And my BM is also running out.) I have very watery eyes and it just disappears in a very short time. It works if I set it with powder but I already feel like I spend too much time w/ MU application, have been adding some more steps, so I want to keep it more simple and shorter and make it take longer, etc.
I honestly feel like giving up. Not sure what to try again. I don't have the money to throw around trying product that don't work (and can't return them.)

I absolutely love this product!! Before using this,I used to apply the Lakhmé eyeconic,but it used to drag a lot and was terrible on the waterline. It also didn't last for more than 6 hours. Then I experimented with the mac technakohl and I've only tried out the Graph black one,and I love it a lot! It's perfect! Good pigmentation, doesn't smudge at all,very creamy! Undoubtedly my favourite

I got this as a gag gift from a friend, her knowing full well my bad experiences with MAC products. This is no different. With UD eye potion and sealed with a powder, it still managed to make me look like a raccoon in an hour. The color is wonderful, it's well pigmented and it's in a useful and sturdy package, but I can't bring myself to use it with such terrible staying power. I live in a rainy place, and if it runs when I'm doing nothing in an air conditioned room, I'd hate to see what happens when I step outside for a moment. I really wish it would have been good, I want to like it but I can't.

I definitely love this eyeliner and I love everything about it. It is very easy to use, it glides on the eyelid and waterline, it is long lasting, its pigmentation is good, it is retractable. I have very watery eyes and before using this eyeliner, I used to end the day with racoon eyes. So I stopped using eyeliner for a very long time and it got back to my life with this eyeliner. The only negative side is it is very soft and if you're not careful enough you may easily break it. Also because of the creamy texture, you run out quickly and it is not a cheap product.

I got this with the All about Nude set. Glides on smooth over the fold on my eyes. But creases even with primer. Its jet black which i really like. I apply Benefit Push Up gel liner or UD Perversion liquid liner or UD Ink For Eyes (in Perversion) felt tip liner, over the color to stay put and pack on the intensity. It lasts and lasts. I dont normally use this at my waterline so i cant tell if it smudges. im happy i dun have to sharpen but just twist the required amount. Drawing thin lines is easy cos the formulation is creamy.

I believe this was among one my first ever eyeliners. Its very easy and quite creamy (much less creamy than UD 24/7) but isn't too creamy to the point where it smudges easily.

I've found this eyeliner to last a school day with minimal moving around and fading. Unfortunately, it is one of the many eyeliners that still fall under my outer eye (I have very watery eyes) so I do have to wipe it half way through the day.

I say this is a great, basic black eyeliner to have. For me, its a no worry product.

This is better than average, but not amazing. I like the dark pigment that it gives (after 2 swipes). It has pretty good staying power on the upper lid but it does smudge a lot on the lower water line. I would say it's one of the better automatic, retractable eyeliners I have tried because of the pigment, but I'm sure there are better ones than this.

UPDATE: Loreal Infallible eyeliner is so much better than this. Not impressed.

Okay it's about time I write a review on this eyeliner. This used to my favorite go-to eyeliner for several years, even though the price is high I still managed to re-purchase. Yet, why did it take me so many years to realize that it's not that long lasting? I love the pigmentation, and how easily it glides on your lower lash line, but after a few hours it will smudge a little. It's not dramatic, but for the price it bothers me. I just love how pigmented it is, but I hate having to touch up my eyeliner every three hours. Maybe I notice it more now that I wear concealer. Fixing the smudge underneath your lower lash line is irritating when you're wearing concealer or any foundation for that matter. For MAC that is a no-no. So I have to let go of this eyeliner and look for one that is just as pigmented and will not smudge on my lower lash line.

This is a mediocre eyeliner. It is a little bit waxy and does not go on smoothly. The pigment is nice but other than that, there's nothing special about this.
