I like how pigmented this eyeliner is. Also, the tip is ideal for easy application. I will definitely repurchase!

Definitely my favorite liquid eyeliner, not ready to call it my HG.

Pros:
It's a nice, solid black (at least at first....it gets less intense as it runs out)

It lasts FOREVER.

Does not smudge, smear or bleed

Pretty easy to apply

Cons:

It *somewhat* irritates my sensitive eyes, but not too bad as compared to other liquid liners, especially considering it's waterproof. My eyes don't love waterproof makeup. I can usually wear it for about 4-6 hours before I notice it bugging me. It's not unbearable.

The tip gets flimsy/bendy pretty quickly which makes it harder to apply as it gets older. The tip is the reason I can't call it an HG.

The girl at Sephora told me that if you use it more horizontal to your eye as opposed to vertical, it's less likely to wreck the tip. I found that did help with subsequent tubes of it, but still the tip doesn't hold up long enough for me. To be honest, I might just be bad at applying liquid liner and maybe I do press too hard or hold it at the wrong angle. I'm decent at makeup application but far from an expert.

I still think it's the best liquid liner I've used, and it's soooo good when the tip is still intact that I will keep buying it until I've found something better. I've purchased it 4 times so far.

Easy to apply and stays put. I have oily eyelids so finding liner that doesn't run has been a hassle, this product is excellent and I've recommended it to everyone.

Everyone loves this liner... I keep trying to but I don't. I'm going to chalk it up to user error and the fact that I prefer gel/cream liners.

It goes on nice and black and I have about 30 seconds to fix my mistakes. It is never easy for me. I always have some shakey marks and I have to take my gel liner brush and smooth them out. This defeats my purpose of trying a liquid liner- I wanted to streamline my routine and lose the brush.

My little wings fade after a few hours. They do not fade all day with my gel liner, even when I use the cheap ones like Elf or Wet & Wild.

I plan on using the rest of my pen just close to my lashline and give up on any flicks or wings.

Of all the eyeliners I've had, this is the best one thus far. I have oily eyelids and previous waterproof liquid eyeliners I've used have always smudged onto my lower eyes. But this one doesn't!

Best. Eyeliner. Ever. It's a very black eyeliner, and doesn't get streaky at all. The tip gives you really good control, and you can create really thin lines if you really wanted to. It also stays on all day and doesn't budge. It won't flake or smudge, even if your skin is on the oilier side. It's easily the best eyeliner I've ever had. Would definitely repurchase.

Great eye liner. I love how easy to apply it is. Totally opaque and not super shiny but not completely matte. Easy to clean up mistakes since is very pen like.
I guess i would say it lives up to its hype.
Would recommend for a learner due to its easy application.
Mine is still new though so I can't comment on how its ages, i have heard the tip separates etc.
I love a thin line and this definitely delivers on that.
Of course i would love it to be cheaper but its not really expensive when you consider its probably only $10, australian, more than most drugstore eye liners and MUCH better than most of them.

Favourite eyeliner, hands down. Though I haven't tried too many high-end liners, I've tried probably every drug store liner. I love the control and precision of the brush, the lasting-power of the liner, and the true "blackness" of the colour. I also love that when you go over your initial line again, instead of erasing the line (like some other brands do) it increases the intensity of the colour. HG

This eyeliner has it's pros and cons. First of all, the stick packaging is actually very useful for a good tight line and keeping your hand steady when putting it on your eyelid, it's good for getting the very inner corners with just a small line, or overlining when you get the outer corners.

It layers very well and doesn't flake or clump up, and sweat or water or whatever other mysterious liquids make their way on your face won't make this eyeliner budge. Unless if its a makeup wipe or remover, or soap. It just takes a little rubbing and it comes off without even a trace behind, the removal is so quick and easy that no matter how tired you are it'll just take a few seconds. I have to highlight again that it doesnt clump or flake or smudge, those are the best parts of this eyeliner. Just close your eye and give it about 30 seconds to dry to be safe, though I'm sure it dries much quicker than that. It won't smudge when you open your eye, and it won't run at all. It doesn't flake off even if you pick at it, it's like a tattoo on your eyelid. I recommend it simply for that fact.

Now as for the cons. The shape of liner may be great for lining the lid itself, but when doing a sharp cat eye, it's a bit more tricky. The tip isnt too wet and just a little tap of that won't do anything. If you wanna do a nice sharp wing then just pushing down the whole brush and having a makeup wipe handy would be the easiest way. You can really big wings with this tip, but nothing sublte or sharp. It's difficult to manuever because of the pencil shape.

I must warn, as well, that after about 3 months it might start running out on you. But do not throw it away!!! You payed 20+ dollars for this baby so do not waste your money like that, the thing is that it'll be back to normal the next day or just wait a bit, I'd say about 3 minutes. I'm not sure why it does that, I think the liquid runs out and just needs a little bit to rearrange and get back to the color. So when it starts to run out early, just wait a little and bit and it'll be back to normal, you'll be able to tell when it really starts to run dry, and even then I'm still going about 6 months on mine just to use every few minutes that I need a detail or two done or a part filled in.

This product really depends on whether or not the user is fine with a little hard manuevering of the tip and shape, and whether or not they wanna deal with the early drying out factor. Otherwise, the color is so nice and the lack of flaking and smudging and running really is worth all the other trouble, even the $20.

Pros:
1. No smudge, no flake and no running
2. Very good at getting a thin line on your eyelid

Cons:
1. Difficult to do a cat eye with (Though keep in mind after you get the perfect wing it'll stay all day with no flaking off, so it depends on whether you deem it worth it or not)
2. Dries out quickly and takes some patience to use after its started to dry out (you can go a bit longer on it though)

I'm not a big fan of this eyeliner. Maybe it's just that I got a bad one but mine didn't give me a solid black line, I had to go over it once or twice to get the black that I wanted. I got mine in the deluxe size to test out but sadly I was disappointed.
