Since I was just starting to play with liquid eyeliners I decided to go with this one in Carbon Black. At first I thought it was a good product but once I started trying other eyeliners I changed my mind. This product goes on very streaky and light. I have to go over it multiple times to get a decent shade of black. Also, it's very watery even after I tried to shake the product before applying.

Is this eyeliner a joke? Wow aside from the terrible applicator, the consistency??? Omg the consistency it's like the water left over after using a black watercolor dose it stay? Absolutely not for 5 seconds. Wow what a absolute waste of money!!

I bought the dark brown 830 they produced and it was good for a while. Thick and wet line that stayed for the whole day. It was a pretty nice formula!

But after about several months of on-and-off use, it started to turn all watery. There was no color payoff at all. Gradually, the line started to fade and eventually it didn't even show up on my lid at all. Literally turned into water or something.
Also, this eyeliner isn't good for the sleek, pointy effect. Altho, if you're skilled enuf, it's possible.

I'm a junior in high school, so my mom bought me this product again and when I opened it, the felt tip was broken... it came out in half -_- wtheck. Idk if I broke it, or it was manufactured that way. Complete waste. Color still works tho, and I guess i can use a blunted edge... GAH, ridiculous. FRUSTRATING!

Pros: --- None its that bad Cons: - Its not waterproof at all. Once grazed by water, it instantly sheds. No joke! It peels off your eyes. Very disappointed - Application is difficult because of the tip. Claims to be easier to apply, but isn't. The tip is elongated for a more "easier" application but, it gets tricky when you want a cat wing. - Often flakes off your eyes and on to your cheek. :(

Okay lets talk about the problem which is the applicator. It is a stiff wand with an angled side. There is no flexibility at all, so if your used to applying your eyeliner in one or two strokes this won't do, don't get me started on adding a wing.

However, If you scrape off excess from the tip and use short strokes it gets the job done, stays all day long too. (Top lash line only)

Having said that in this price range there are better eyeliners out there without the aggravation.

This is the worst liquid eyeliner ever. The applicator is so stiff you cannot put it on your eyelids. I am so disappointed as I use a lot of L'Oreal products. This product needs to go back to the drawing board...what a waste of my money this turned out to be.

I think I have repurchased the L'oreal (non-waterproof formula) felt-tipped liner five times! I plan to pickup my sixth bottle (bottle, right...?) of this liner again shortly after many trials and but mostly errors of other felt tip liners. Here's why:
1. Non-flexible, sturdy tip! This eyeliner isn't going to flick off to the side or upward while applying. Other versions of the felt-tip liner are FLIMSY and I end up having to correct the line by making it thicker when it flicks around and gets all JAGGED. :(
2. Non-watered-down opacity. Sorry but if your black eyeliner isn't opaque, it's going to look grey, or some lesser than black shade, and that's just not as defining as I like my eye-liner. It's actually one of the biggest things I've noticed with ANY kind of liquid eyeliner on most people- the blackness just isn't intense enough.
3. Preciseness. This isn't a "smudged" look. The line is straight and to the point.
4. Stays put for the most part. I don't purchase the waterproof version which I find to be too dry. The regular version is more moisturizing and less likely to dry/flake. But it does stay put for more than 6 hours for me, maybe not at the pool, but definitely lasts for a work or school setting.

For a drugstore eyeliner I didn't expect much. The felt tip isn't super precise but if you are skilled with eyeliner it does the job. The real con thing for me is that it doesn't last the whole day, and even when I curl my lashes after I apply the eyeliner it sometimes flakes off. The colour was good, I have brown which isn't too brown or black. Packaging was fine. My friend bought the wrong colour by accident and gave it to me (she likes the black one), but I don't think I will buy it myself when it runs out.

I'm really surprised to see all the negative reviews on this product. I absolutely love this eyeliner and it is my favorite liquid eyeliner of the MANY that I have tried over the years. This product has amazing staying power which I can't say for many other drugstore liquid liners. It stays on through my entire work day AND even comes out of an afternoon nap perfectly intact! I can somewhat understand the complaints about the applicator...it is a little bit difficult to do a sharp wing on the outer corner but I've always found that simply lightening the pressure I put on the applicator solves that problem. I guess the applicator isn't for everyone. I love this product and will continue to repurchase it in the future.

This liner... Where do I even start?

Well, I bought this one because a) the store was out of my favourite Rimmel liquid liner and b) I adore most of L'Oreal products, I think they're some of the best, if not the absolute best quality drug store makeup products you can buy. So I was really optimistic about this stuff! Like I REALLY wanted to love it. I thought it would be love at first stroke.

Okay fast forward to me applying this stuff. I went to start applying it at the inner corner of my eye and was left with a huge, thick line.
Believe me when I say that I am not a novice at the art of liquid liner. I've been doing this religiously for 3-4 years now.

I was SO disappointed with the thick, blunt tip. Don't get me wrong, the formula, ain't that bad. And yes, I should have probably paid more attention when applying, but it's not even noticeably wide until you go to apply, and accidentally turn it as you drag. But then even when you do pay attention to the tip, you still manage to mess up more than average. And the saddest part: It makes a nice pointed wing really hard to achieve.

I did not stop using it simply because at the time, I was a student, who really couldn't afford to throw out a $13 ($13!!! [drugstore!!!]) product. Don't get me wrong, I will invest in something if I think it'll serve me well but my favourite liner is like $6-7 max and waaay better than this stuff.

Long story short, it's a decent product if you have the time to sit there and be super cautious about your application and have a q-tip factory in your basement to fix all your mistakes. I however, do not have the patience for that stuff for day to day wear. Definitely will not buy again.
