I must say, I've always liked liquid eyeliners because of the intensity. I was quite new to shopping at MAC back then, so I was super excited to try this.

First time I went, it was actually sold out, huge bummer. Two weeks later, I finally came back to see it on display.

I gladly shelled out $22, hoping that it wouldn't dissapoint. And I bet my buttons, it works like a dream.

The tip is very fine, almost like a calligraphy pen. I always loved the look of black winged eyeliner, and this gives me a perfect wing. It's like using a sharpie, just open the lid and draw onto your eyelids. Staying power impressed me, I have such oily eyelids that within an hour, my makeup would decide to travel across to other parts of my face. This suprisingly, stayed put throughout the day. I'm still a student, so I wake up at 4:00am, do my makeup, leave the house, go to school, go to work, and I come back at around 6. That's more than 12 hours, and my eyeliner stills stay on my eyelids.

Pigmentation of the liner is great, it gives you a buildable intensity. I went over my line about twice to give a bold and edgy look.

One thing that I'm a bit dissapointed on is that the tip dried out really quick. I got a decent amount of uses out of it, but then it just completely died on me.

But all in all, I really reccomend this to people who are looking for an eyeliner that is bold, stays put throughout the day, and easy application.

HG! Used to use Stila waterproof liquid eyeliner but really glad I switched over - this one is less expensive anyway. I use it with MAC prep and prime eye vibrancy and it works better than any other liquid eyeliner I've tried! love the tip, really easy to apply, also the liner is very black. love it.

EDIT: Changed my review. I bought another one and it is just like a lot of the other reviews say - dried out super fast, barely black at all, I really don't understand why a brand new eyeliner would barely work. Will not buy again.

This liner works great on me. I love the super dark colour, and it lasts all day on me. I have oily, hooded lids so I usually have problems with eyeliner transfering up onto my upper lid. This liner stays where it should, no transfering and I don't have to wait for it to set. I can do lovely winged cat eye with it & love it.

RETURNED RIGHT AWAY!!!!!! I read the bad reviews but I bought it anyways, cause I wanted to love it so badly. Literally the first time I used it, it was dried out. They accepted my return and I got Mac fluidline instead. Hope it works better.

Anyone who reads my reviews knows 2 things about me- I am crazy for MAC and I change my hair colour a lot! While I had red hair I wanted to create a strong, heavy, cat winged line on my eyes and this was the best liquid liner I could find! It was easy to use and created heavy, dark lines without being a heavy liner on your eyes. It went over eyeshadows easily and looked very 60's pin up! SO beautiful!

This eyeliner single-handedly got me hooked on the pen-style eyeliners.
Liquid eyeliner has always been difficult for me to use, since I have naturally long lashes. It just got everywhere and made a horrible mess. However I've found with the pen-style, its easier to use, exactly like a pen, to line my eyes perfectly every time. It's got a felt-tip, and the only downside to that is that it can fray/get dull in my opinion. However mine isn't too bad yet. Its definitely worth it, seeing as I can use the very pointy tip to even dot liner in between my lashes, for a super dark, super fine lined look.
I've heard of people having issues with this pen drying out quickly, and I've only had mine for a month and a half, but this is not to be stored upright like other liners. It has to be stored lying down, otherwise it will definitely dry out on you!
I've been storing mine lying down and so far I havent had any issues with dryness. This is definitely my favorite liner until it dies!

4's across the board. I'm surprised by the overwhelming amount of bad reviews. I think this eyeliner is the best liquid pen I've ever used but, then again it's not amazing or HG. This is a wayyy better version of revlon's color stay pen. I'd repurchase unless I found something better.

Really disappointed with this product. After my first few uses of it, I fell in love with it for how highly pigmented it is and how the application glided on so smoothly and effortlessly. However after a few weeks of using it, I noticed that the tip started drying out and the edges were fine. Not impressed anymore.

I have been using pen type eyeliner and boy this one really disappointed me...I only used it a few times and the tip has dried out. Had to shake it very hard in order for the liquid to come out onto the tip. The colour was not even intense regardless of the name "rapid black".I guess the cheaper ones like Maybelline and Kiss Me works better.
