I have this in both the automatic liner and the one you have to sharpen. I do NOT like the one you have to sharpen at all. It does not glide on IMO as smooth as the automatic liners.
I have the automatic liner in a grey and a forest green. However, the forest green looks brown on me.
The liner stays all day on my upper lashes with no problems. For the drugstore price, I definitely think they are worth trying.

I was looking for a good waterproof eyeliner and picked up the Prestige waterproof eyeliner pencil in black. I believe it was a little more than $5 at Duane Reade. The consistency of the liner is super smooth and creamy. It glides right on without tugging, unlike other drugstore pencil liners I've tried like Almay, NYC (99 cent wooden ones). I would say the Prestige liner is comparable to my MAC Powerpoint e/l in Engraved. Unfortunately, like the MAC liner, the Prestige e/l was not long lasting, budge-proof, smudge-proof or waterproof on me. I applied some onto my upper lash line (I didn't use it on my waterline) and not even an hour later, it had crept down onto my undereye area. Raccoon eyes! Yuck. Really disappointing because I thought this might be my HG waterpoof e/l. It was so easy to work with and I thought it had potential.

These guys are great. I have them in almost every color, but use the black everyday. I'm surprised by the reviewers who claim the color doesn't last on their waterlines, because this is the only liner that stays put in that location, on me. Ulta has frequent "Buy 1 get 1" Prestige sales, and when they do, I typically grab every black liner they have!

The consistency of these liners is really nice. I have Graphite, a silvery charcoal. Unfortunately, they do not last on me - 2 hours after applying the line has vanished somewhere, a problem that I do not typically have with liners. I am very disappointed because they feel so nice, but the Colorstay liners are much better.

Whatever look I'm trying to achieve with eyeliner, I invariably tightline as a first step, sometimes adding more above the upper lashes. I've always liked the smudgy effect of pencils, but if this is combined with a habit of tightlining, the potential for disastrous smearing looms. For days when gel eyeliner seems too precise and high-maintenance, a waterproof pencil is very appealing. Prestige offers two versions - its waterproof eyeliner is a marriage of a traditional kohl pencil with a creamy, slightly gel-like formula, while the waterproof automatic eyeliners are similarly smooth but with a smaller, firmer "lead" that allows sharper lines to be drawn.
I have the waterproof eyeliner in 09 Teakwood, an aptly named shade. I had been searching for a dark chocolate brown with the barest hint of red to enrich it and highlight my green eyes. I find most browns too black (harsh), too taupe (dulling), too bronze (light) or too chestnut (pink-eye) for either neutral everyday looks or to combine well with eyeshadows in the purple family. I swatched many before I found Teakwood, which is spot on. All of the colours in this line are nicely pigmented; there's a wide variety available and I haven't spotted any duds, although I don't pay equal attention to them all.
Application is simple; the consistency makes it fairly glide on, and quite a lot can be deposited quite quickly. This is excellent for tightlining, as any tiny globules that adhere to lash roots contribute to the illusion of a thick fringe there. It also eliminates eye-pokery, a definite bonus. Lines stay eminently smudgeable; ideal for kohl devotees. And therein lies the rub. This liner is waterproof, certainly (an oil-based cleanser is necessary for removal) but not budgeproof. It doesn't seem to set after application. I don't have particularly oily eyelids that might cause or worsen smearing, yet it creates panda eyes to rival any conventional eyeliner. I've experimented by wearing this plenty of different ways, in case tightlining was simply not its forte, with almost identical results. I have sensitive eyes and am finding that this irritates them, so I'll be passing it on to someone else who can enjoy it. Two lippies to reflect the great colour range and texture.
A note on sharpening - the consistency of the pencil means that it requires regular sharpening, so may not last as long as non-waterproof rivals. Prestige suggest that - surprisingly enough - their own-brand sharpener is the best for this, and initially the point does look unusually shaped. However, I've had great results using my Trish McEvoy sharpener, so rise above the sales ploy! £4.87/1.2g (0.05oz), at Boots.

They come in two types: automatic (just twist it for the lead to come up) or you can get the type you have to sharpen.
Both types are good and I've only bought the black and dark brown colours. The good thing about the one you have to sharpen is that the wood that you sharpen is good quality; so there's not splinters of wood that come off when you have to sharpen it which can be bad if the splinters fall in your eye! - the wood sharpens off smoothly in large pieces.
No smudging. I was using Revlon Colourstay eyeliners for quite awhile since my sister had recommended it to me but I've noticed that some are just too dry and they actually break off during application even when using a light hand. Prestige liners are so much smoother than Revlon Colourstay and the staying power is just as good as Revlon's. It works great in the waterline for me - doesn't budge or smudge or disappear. Plus, the bonus is that the Prestige ones are half the price of Revlons. I've also tried a number of higher end eyeliners like Stila, Make up Forever's, and Dior's; but none worked better than the prestige one even if you remove the price tag.

Since I can't find the Jordana pencil eyeliner anymore I bought some of these for under two dollars each at Walgreens, (they are d/c the line there)
They are soft and very easy to apply (at first) which made me worry about the staying power. I was pleasantly surprised. The staying power was long! 5 hours later the liner had faded a little but that's great for a pencil. The bad news, after a couple of months the liners got hard. So big demotion of lippiesl
The colors purchased were Granite - blue/gray with shine, Surf - Dark blue with shine, and Suede - medium brown matte. I love all three. Too bad the crayon gave out.

OMG I love these eyeliners!! I have 5 of them..Black, Granite, Charcoal Brown, Payday, and Surf. All great colors to have. I plan to own them all. For only $4.99 I think these are the greatest, even better then most high end eyeliners so I definitely recommend these to anyone. Please check them out. Ps. I adore the look of these...the style/packaging is perfect IMO!!

I reallly liked this eyeliner because I was trying to find an eyeliner that would stick on my waterline. For those of you that said it wouldn't even transfer color, what I did was sharpen it and use it right after (so i guess the liner is softer or soemthing) & it went on! :) It doesn't stay on me forever cause I guess I have watery eyes or something, but its pretty darn good. Revlon colorstay didn't work for me ): & mac blacktrack fluidline was ehh on me too. So this was really nice for me.
& it's cheap. (=
This fades off my waterline really quick and I barely use it now.

Great buy for the price.It goes on very smooth and it was easy for me to apply to my eye.Very long lasting eyeliner. Oh, and everytime I go to my drugstore to get this liner it's sold out so it must be a good product.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Black
yessss..would buy this again over and over. why? i can't believe a $5 eyeliner would be THIS creamy...hello? Not even the revlon colorstay eyeliners..It did well on the rub test..but uhm, you're not supposed to rub eyes anyway. Waterproof? Yes. And on the waterline? Like a true kohl liner!!! I wear contacts, so my eyes water alot and it lasted the whole 10 hours. Would buy all colors.

This is a pretty good eyeliner for your money. I have it in denim and charcoal. The charcoal is good if I don;t want such a harsh line on my eyes, and the blue is really vibrant. This stuff doesn't rub of and glides on pretty smoothly. A good investment of your money. This is one eyeliner I would buy time and again.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I love this eyeliner so much, I used to love Revlon's colorstay for long but since I read the reviews about this pencil, I thought I would give it a try and it was on sale for $4 cdn so it s not bad. And I am surprised by how easy it glides on, Colorstay got the best staying power I have ever tried but it does not glide as easy as this one, and the staying power is just about the same. Love love this and I will definitely try out other colors. Recommand to everyone who loves to do eyelines.

HG pencil liner for me. I have MAC fluidlines, Bobbi Brown and Clinique gel liners. I also own Revlon Colorstay, Lancome and Laura Mercier eye pencils. This is by far the best as far as ease of application, intensity and staying power go. Love this stuff. Like other reviewers have stated, I would pay triple the price for this eye pencil. A great drugstore gem.

I love this product. For the price (of about $4.99), it is very good quality. It does not smudge and glides on smoothly. I usually use black or blue. I usually line the top edge of my eyes, but will line the entire eye for a dramatic evening look. I wear contact lenses and it does not burn my eyes or irritate my lenses. Great product, especially for the price.

This eyeliner is pretty good, I have it in Surf and it's a beautiful blue good for the summer time and a fun alternative to basic black. It was pretty waterproof and stayed on the waterline. It did smudge when I applied it to the skin on my lower eyelid, but I always have problems with that so I won't take off any lippies. However, the entire Prestige line is on clearance at Walgreens, and I asked the beauty advisor if it was being discontinued and she said it was. Now, I don't know if she meant that the whole line was being discontinued forever, or maybe Walgreens just won't be carrying it anymore. Either way, ladies, go stock up because they're about $3.69 and I don't know how much longer they will be around for!

This has been my HG no-smudge eyeliner for about 6-7 years now. I used to use black but now I've switched mainly to charcoal, it seems to stay on a little better & smudge less. For about $5 it's not too expensive & one pencil lasts me about 4-6 months with daily use.
And seriously, wtf does that even say? ↓

Bought the black. It's a classic, harsh black. Color is fine, formula is a little stiff but smudgable. The panda eye smudge problem is horrible. Would not repurchase.

This really does last and the sharpener is handy so you can get a more precise line. I also think it's good value for money.
