I tried this after reading all the reviews here, and I like it, not love it. It's very good, but not great on me. It is dark, dark, inky black and easy to use. When I put it to the test, it stayed just as I applied it on my upper eyelid, but disappeared from my waterline within hours. I prefer the Cover Girl Liquiline Blast because it lasts on my waterline longer. I do not regret buying this and I would buy it in a pinch as an alternative to the Liquiline.
Edit 8/5/12: Giving back 2 lippies, bringing the overall rating to 5. While the CG Liquiline is more user friendly, the Milani cannot be beaten in color. Now that I've figured out how to set this with black eyeshadow, this is my go-to for dramatic eye looks. I've even used it as an eye base in a pinch.

As others have noted, this pencil has a wonderful, creamy texture and goes on as a true, intense black. I like the way that it applies and the price is right. I won't be repurchasing, however, because it smears and migrates on me-- I end up a mess.
I have recently tried the Prestige Total Intensity pencil and prefer it.

Very pigmented & very creamy.
It works great on the top of my lids, and I do have the asian eyelids.
But doesnt work well on my lower lashline and waterline if I go out for a long period of time (as in, hanging out with my friends, laughing, hot weather etc) I got really excited when I got this as a bday present and I saw tons of good reviews, but it did melt on my waterline and smudge on my lashline :/
I only use it during winter or when I go out with my family :3

After hearing so much about this product. I decided to give it a try. I am satisfied with the Styli Style eyeliner that I use, but wanted to see if Milani would be a darker black. I tried this product for about a week. It is definitely the darkest black eyeliner that I've ever tried, goes on smoothly, and looks great on. It also doesn't smudge on my Asian lids. However, I noticed that about an hour after I applied my makeup, my vision would be blurry... Turns out it was this eyeliner that was somehow getting onto my contact lenses. I did give it to my friend (not a contact wearer) and she loves it. I would definitely recommend this product to those who don't wear contacts!

Pros: Very pigmented ,creamy,slides on easily
When I first purchased this at my local walgreens,I was eager to get home and apply it after hearing so many good things on Youtube about it.
However,As much as I love this product...It irritates my eyes and distorts my vision whike wearing my contact lenses:( Could have been my hg
Would repurchase to line my eyelid only.UPDATE...I could not even wear this to line my eyelid.It attached itself to my contacts somehow, made me see blurry.Sucka, because..the black is such a BAM black.Contact lense wearers, this is not for you.If you dont wear contact lenses, then this is a must have

Urban Decay has recently released something close to this product but I still think Milani has got it right with this one.
This formula is do dark and stays on so wonderfully, I don't think any drugstore product can come close. It stays put on my waterline for a good 10 hours and smudges only a little throughout the day.
It's super easy to come off. I just use a but of my lancome MU remover and it instantly comes off.
It was a bit pricy for a drugstore product but for this quality that's comparable to high end makeup like UD (and might be even better), I'M TOTALLY SOLD.

I bought this eyeliner after seeing so many great things about it, and all of the hype is right. It's very black, applies smoothly, and stays put. It literally glides right on - no need for tugging or going over the line multiple times. The only issue I had was that it made my eyes itchy and watery for the first few times I used it. I must have adapted to it, because it's fine now, but those who have sensitive eyes may want to be cautious.

good for smokey eye, extremely simple
good for waterline, though it doesn't last the whole day for me, it lasts a good chunk of the day, and it goes on with no tugging
good for tightlining, again, goes on extremely creamy
sooooo pigmented, and extreeemely black
kinda hard to work with, since it's so creamy, but i tried it with an eyeliner brush and it worked fine
hard to sharpen, although if i pop it in the fridge for awhile then sharpen it it's not a problem
staying power isn't that great by itself, but if i use an eyeprimer then it stays the whole day
i don't like having to sharpen it, but for the automatic one, if you twist it up, it doesn't twist down
not a huge color selection
not that great in terms of staying power
overall though, it is a really great eyeliner, and it's also very comparable to the urban decay 24/7 liners

I liked this product. It wasn't a love product though. The color was amazing and pigmented. My only problem is that it was easy to smear throughout the day. It didn't massively smear.. but I found really small smudges under my bottom lashes every time I wore it at some point in the day. I prefer UD liner because it doesn't smear but this is a fantastic alternative.

i had to review this because i've read so many conflicting reviews. i even read someone saying it was too dark. now, when you buy black eyeliner (i'm assuming thats what she was talking about), don't you generally want it to be, well.. black!? i realize some come out a little lighter, but black is black, and that's what most people love about it!!
anyway. it goes on smooth, it is dark and bold and easy to use. i haven't had a problem with it smearing after i let it set for a few minutes. i love it. it has the intensity of a cream/gel liner in the ease of a pencil. the price is a little much for drug store brand, but it's worth it.

I bought this in black and brown. I like it, okay. The pigmentation is great and it's much smoother than any other drugstore eyeliner I've tried. It doesn't stay on my waterline any particular length of time, though. It stays longer than WnW but for less time than Covergirl.
I will say that it seems almost too soft, however. I wa susing it on my top lid and it was dulled, but when I sharpened it, it broke off on my lid. I sharpened it again and it did the same thing. I would have stuck it in the freezer for a bit, but I was in a hurry to get to my friends wedding. I ended up with messed up e/l and feeling rushed. I don't know If I would buy it again, simply because of that.
Overall, it's okay.

I love this! It's comparable to high end liners but awesome drugstore price. It might seem a bit pricier than other drug store liners, but cost-to-quality? It's loads cheaper. Super creamy, super pigmented and after I put it on, it does not budge.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Oily, Medium, Warm Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Coarse Eyes: Brown
This stays on my waterline literally all day. First ever eyeliner that I have found to do that. It makes a very dark pigment and once its dried it stays all day on my waterline and lash lines. Its really super dark and dramatic. The only flaw for me is, that it irritates my eyes when on the waterline ALOT! Which totally bums me out because it was great. However, irritated eyes sucks. Won't repurchase this, but I do recommend because it may not irritate your eyes! Or if your not going to wear it on your waterline then it'll be good..

Love this! HE quality liner at a drug store price. What's not to love! Very creamy, intense pay-off. I have them in every color except green (they are always OOS, but I will find one!). The gold one is so gorgeous, the blue one has purple reflects! The retractable ones are a bit less creamy, but that's to be expected, and they are still smoother than most. Only downside: EXTREME pain to sharpen. *TIP* Put in fridge for 15 mins (or freezer for 5). It sharpens beautifully.

I first heard about this on YouTube and decided to try this during Milani's Cyber Monday sale when their entire site was 50% off. Their site was so overwhelmed and it took almost 2 weeks to get but it was worth it!
The pigmentation of this liner is amazing. Rich bold black. Give it about 15 or so seconds to set and it will not rub off whatsoever!
For $6.99 (depending on where you live), this is s steal and gives higher end liners a run for their money!!!!

I used to swear by MUFE's aqua eyes in 0L, which is the matte black one, however mine dried out. Pretty bad and that stuff is not cheap so I bought this as a replace until I had the money for the mufe.
This is the best. For real this time! Its so much deeper in terms of color, this is the blackest!! It glides on like nothing else and it just wont move, you do need make up remover to take this off.
The only downside for me its that its sooo creamy and I am not used to it so I didnt get to control it as much as Id like but I am getting there.

Ok, so here's my deal. I've been using an old lancome kohl eyeliner for the longest, then I saw these reviews and they were all so different that I had to try it and see for my self. Found it at cvs, I expected it to be cheaper but it was mid range for a drugstore brand. The first time I put this liner to my upper lid, it glided across so smoothly with such an intense black pigment that I was shocked. Now let me say that my lid is super shiny and oily so I usually get that awful smudge line on my upper lid within an hour of wearing it. The Milani eyeliner had amazing staying power - no upper eyelid line and believe it or not even watery eyes kept it in place. I'd def recommend this eyeliner! One thing though, it's a real hassel getting it off. Maybe it's this way for other deeply pigmented eyliners but using Lancome's eye makeup remover I have to use it about three times in order to get it all off. Also I've never tried sharpening yet, so I'm curious if I'll have a hard time like other reviewers. Over all though I love this eyliner!

Soft like butter and pitch black! I love putting this on my waterline, no effort needed or tugging of my eyes. Like heaven for my waterline!
- 2 lippes : I don't use it on my upper lid as it's too soft and doesn't last on my oily lid. The line doesn't get very precise either due to the softness. It's alright for smudging out with a smoky look. I haven't yet found any eyeliner that stay all day on my waterline and this one fades quite quickly.
Another thing I have to say about this pencil is that the product itself is SO soft that is not very long-lasting, so when I sharpen it lots of product gets wasted:(

I use this on my waterline. I think it works better than alot of expensive eye liners. I have used mac's, urban decays, estee lauder just to name a few. HOwever they all smudge on my water line and does not have the lasting power. I would say the color is very intense and black. It still smudges at the end of the day- within 3 hours I would say, even with black eyeshadow on top of it. It is very easy to apply, however it is extemely hard to sharpen. If you use a cheap sharper, it will just eat up the pencil. I would recommend in investing in a nicer sharper if you want this eye liner. I use the sephora brand sharper and it works pretty good. For now, i will continue using it since it is a cheap alternaltive until i find a better one.
