have been using liquid eyeliner for 10 years and I very much prefer soft felt tips like that of this eyeliner. I have been using L'Oreal's Lineur Intense liner ever since my beloved Maybelline Eye Express felt tip liquid eyeliner (in the blue tube with a gold cap) got discontinued about 4 or 5 years ago. *Tear* Anyway, this is the next best thing. Its felt tip is very similar in shape and flexibility to Eye Express, but it seems to be a more "flattened" cone than Eye Express, if that makes sense. So I have to look at the tip before I use it to ensure it's rotated properly so I can do a thin line on my upper lid with a winged "cat-eye" edge at the outer corners.
I prefer the newer black (Carbon Black) to Black Mica because it is a deep, true, opaque (and slightly shiny, which I don't mind) black. The Black Mica is slightly see-through (at least when the tube is brand new) and seems to be more runny. However, Black Carbon seems to be thicker and more gel-like and thus, as the tube gets old and dries out it builds up inside the well and around the applicator in a stretchy mess. It can also get gloppy at the tip after some time and the liner becomes kind of sticky and stretchy when you put it on, kind of like some melty cheese pizza. All this can happen before the standard 3-month expiration date for liquid eye cosmetics (of course after which they should be thrown out). Carbon Black can get kind of flaky through the day if it rubs against something (hand, pillow, etc.) or if you try to go over a previous application or over-correct while applying. One more gripe--I often have to lick my fingers and press my eyelashes between them to remove the dried liner so that it doesn't interfere with my mascara application. If I don't do this I often have problems with my lashes sticking together. I don't think the Black Mica gels up like Carbon Black, but I honestly can't remember since I use Carbon Black more often.
This liner is very easy to control and apply as you like. It won't skip unless it's a older tube and can easily draw a thin or thick line. It's great for doing the cat-eye look. I shake it each time I re-dip the tip in the ink well to freshen the ink wetness and when it feels like it's getting dry. This eyeliner stays nice-looking until I wash it off. I never really have problems with it smudging or smearing. It seems to hold up pretty well in humid and/or hot conditions, but I can't give a fair review of its performance in humidity since I live in southern Cali and not the South US.
All in all, despite my biased gripes (since I'm still in love with Eye Express) this is a great liquid liner and I highly recommend it to liquid liner amatuers and pros alike.
Thanks for reading :)

I am a black eyeliner enthusiast (pencil, liquid, cream, kohl, cake - I use them all). This is one of the easiest to use and I consistently get a smooth, clean line. The felt tip is felxible, making it easier to use than some brands with a stiff felt tip. I have it in Black Mica, and the color, while not the most intense black I own, is a pretty black with a hint of shine. My only gripe is that it could be slightly more water/smudge resistent, but unless I accidently rub my eyes, it stays put.

I'm horrible with liquid eyeliners, but I love this one. The felt tip is extremely easy to use, and I don't even have to tug on my eyelid to get a nice clean line.
I only have it in brown, which, for me, is great for a daytime, natural look, since I'm so pale. I'm definitely planning to get it in black as well, though, for more dramatic looks.

This by far is my favorite eyeliner. It's amazing for those of us who do cat-eyes a lot. It doesn't smudge if you use a little primer (and I have oily lids too). The only problem I have is, it doesn't last as long as I want. The brush thing seems to absorb a lot of the liner into it and I can go through a complete one of these within 3-4 weeks /:

This eyeliner is a great eyeliner to start out with when your not used to using liquid eyeliner as the long handle allows you to keep a steady hand.
The colour is true, the black is deep rich black and the brown is gorgeous. The packaging is great, watertight, has never leaked on me. One of these will last me a good few months with everyday wear.
This is very cheap at priceline.
I will definately be re-purchasing

I love finding drugstore HGs and this is one of my recent ones! I am obsessed with liquid liner because due to my contacts/seasonal allergies/oily skin all liners besides liquid do not last on my upper lashline. I use MAC's Engraved powerpoint for my lower lashline but for the top I must use a good liquid liner! This stuff blows my Chanel automatic liquid liner out of the water. The Chanel did not go on smoothly for me and would clump up on the end of the applicator. The L'Oreal one is not only cheap and so easy to use, but it lasts all day!!! For me, that is truly amazing. I foresee myself using this for a long long time .

I have been wearing liquid eyeliner for about a decade and this one is my favorite. I love the "paintbursh" style applicator and the deep black color. My only complaint would be that the formula seems slightly runny in consistency. Other than that, this stuff is great!

I wear liquid eyeliner on a daily basis, my favorite being mark's Hook Up On The Edge eyeliner. I was getting bored and wanted to try out a different product, and chose this liner. I miss my mark so so much! The L'Oreal formula is quite good though. I haven't had any smudging or whatever, the color (brown) is good, and looks natural. However, the packaging (the applicator especially) is really bad. I'm used to a fine and hard felt tip, and what I now have is a huge, smearing paintbrush. The wand is too long and hard to maneuver. I can't seem to find a way to get the hang of this. It's seemingly impossible (and I've tried and tried) to create a thin line with this product all at once. I have to go back with some makeup remover and wipe the excess off to get a thin line.

I have this in the felt tip in Black Mica. It's dead simple to use, lasts all day, and comes off easily. What more can you ask? My other eyeliner is Laura Mercier Eyeliner, but when I'm feeling lazy, I use the Lineur Intense. I find that the felt tip needs to be frequently recharged, but it's capable of a very fine line, and can be built up easily for a more dramatic effect.

After having not-so-great results with Revlon Colorstay eyeliner (color faded too much) I thought I would give this a try. I like how the brush is really fine and tapered. I prefer this over a felt tip because I have better control on my drawing. It was also a nice dark black and not a soft black. I don't want to keep drawing over the same place to achieve this color. It does dry with a bit of sheen and not really matte. This doesn't really bother me though. This eyeliner doesn't smudge either which is great on my oily eyelids! I have to take off a lippie because it doesn't stand up to my watery eyes. I like to wing out my eyeliner but the wing part will not last if I do not go over it with my gel eyeliner. It's a small extra step so I don't mind all that much. Overall it's a great eyeliner for the price. Definately will repurchase =)
