My favorite eyeliner. Does excactly what I expect: nice clean line, nice clean black, not too glossy, not painlike matte either. Just perfect. Compact and lasts forever.
I have gone through maybe 5 of these in the last 10 years and have been very happy with it. I got the Guerlain liquid eyeliner last time (the one in the glass bottle), because this one was sold out. The SA at Sephora told me that the Guerlain one was just as good, but better value because the bottle is bigger. It's ok, but not nearly as good as this one.
I will not stray again, this is the one for me. I would really like a graphite sort of shade, though.

Love the consistency and opacity of this eyeliner and I love the fineness of the applicator tip. For someone with small lids this is excellent, it has excellent staying power and lasts throughout the day without smudges. Better than Stila and Urban Decay's liners in my opinion.

Dior never fails to dissapoints. the brush is a thin felt tip and it lines my top lid with the perfect thin line that can be extended and fixed by any mistakes. the product is fool proof so if you make a small mistake, you can easily use a small qtip and gently wipe it off. another thing about this product is how darkly pigmented it is. the color is truly intense but it does crease after a while so it needs to be reapplied throughout the day.

My favorite liquid liner! The brush allows for precision lining whether thin or a little thicker. Lasts all day without smudging at all! I've tried other liquid liners and so far none compare. Just finished my last of the styleliner amd definitely going to purchase again.

My absolute favorite eyeliner. I find that the Dior eyeliner pen is a little easier to apply than this, and more convenient, but also more costly for a smaller amount of product... so the Styleliner wins (if you don't leave your Styleliner cap too unscrewed and the entire product dries out *facepalm*).
The consistency of the product is perfect (not too thick, not too fluid) and applies smoothly without either leaking into your eyeballs or tugging at your skin. Once applied the product stays put and doesn't smear or flake- the two problems with liquid eyeliner that normally plague me so. My eyelids are pretty oily and some other "strong" liquid liners haven't worked out (Urban Decay eyeliner makes me look like Courtney Love, or worse yet, Courtney Love's blind grandma).
The price can be pretty steep so when I'm on a budget (aka always) I opt for Bourjois's Liner Clubbing which also has the staying power I need but doesn't look *quite* as pretty.

My mom got this for her but since she doesn't use liquid eyeliners she gave this to me and I adore it.The thing I love the most is it's staying power it says on forever.The packaging is really pretty I love the silver colour.Another point is it's glossiness which I wasn't really loving it at first but got used to it later also you can go over it with a pencil liner to get the matte look.The downside is it's price which is to expensive but hey it's Christian Dior what do you expect.Would buy it again if I get some extra cash.

I got this in pale blue from a sale and I really like the formula, brush and the package itself. Also the color is perfect when I (for once) have tanned a bit :) Would love to try this in other colors as well!

Everyone is familiar with dial-up products so that aspect was pretty obvious; twist the bottom to increase flow of product. But I didn't find the miniscule directions in the box very helpful when it came to putting the pen itself together for use for the first time, because when you first open it, the applicator brush is not visible. At first I thought mine was broken or missing that piece.
When nothing magical happened after removing the safety ring -- dial still seemed locked and brush was still missing -- I wondered if the brush wasn't a seperate piece that had gotten stuck in the cap. Hoping to dislodge it, I then replaced and removed cap and Voila! All of a sudden the built-in brush popped out from the stem containing the liquid.
I don't see why they couldn't just say in the long-winded, irrelevant directions, quite simply:
1. Pull ring
2. Replace and remove cap
Thankfully you only have to do this that first initial time, as once you have activated the release of the brush it stays put and the whole pen design from brush to dial is GENIUS. I normally do not like eyeliner on me because I can never get a thin enough line to look natural. I would like to enhance my light eyes, but at the same time I don't want it to look like I've drawn a ring around them.
The last Calvin Klein pen I had, more like a fine-tipped magic marker, was "okay" (as in better than pencil), but I mainly only was buying again because that sucker lasted forever and I figured was as good as it could get. I'm so glad Sephora stopped carrying it so I could try Dior Liquid!! I was skeptical about the brush at first, as the brush that so many of the jar-style liquids I had tried in the past always seemed to distort the shape of either one eye or the other with the big bold incorrectable lines they produced -- a problem Dior has solved not just in the ingenius pen design, but even the tapered brush itself.
Hands-down, BEST EYELINER EVER. The user has total control in how thick or thin to apply the product, as well as how much or little of product itself they want to apply. And this pen brush gets ALLLL the way into the lash line becoming completely invisible if you want!! You just look like you have more defined features, not more defined caked-up make-up on your face. It is AWESOME. And the effect you get when combining this product with DiorShow Mascara is outstanding. These products were clearly designed to enhance each other. I hope they never change!

The best liquid eyeliner I've used yet—and from drugstore to Dior, I've tried most of them. The Dior brush, when half the product is wiped off before usage, suits me perfectly, and I can do almost fineline thin to Sophia Loren thick and winged; the liner applies wonderfully smooth and even. The black is dark carbon black, with a semi-gloss finish (reminds me of MAC's SuperSlick liner). I would consider this to have HG status if the finish was matte (like MUFE's waterproof liquid liner), but I can live with the semi-gloss. While not quite waterproof, this liner lasts well, and I often have to scrub hard to remove it. Great, GREAT liner (if the brush suits you) that is really geared toward dramatic night time looks.

I thought this was fantastic, in that it stays where you put it and doesn't flake. BUT! I found that it wasn't matt, it was like a shiny black and looked like it hadn't dried ... which was great at night, but far too OTT during the day. I still think Barry M's liquid eyeliner is the best on the market.

This is my first real liquid eyeliner and I love it. The brush is very well made and you can count on it to produce a well defined line, the only variable then is for your arm to be stable! (Which, any liquid eyeliner enthusiast will tell you, practice makes perfect.) The ink is a perfect jet black, and doesn't change in shade all throughout the day. My only gripe (if I'm allowed to) is how worn out and tattered the bottle becomes when I keep it in my makeup pouch. I can always depend on this eyeliner to make my eyes look awake whenever I need it. Once it finishes I'll have to run out to get this again.

Dior Styleliner in 174 sparking violet
Part of Dior’s holiday 09 collection.
The color is a grayish violet with sparkles in it. The sparkles are barely visible when you apply it, but as always with sparkles, they are persistent when trying to remove it…
The application is very easy. I was able to draw a very subtle thin line, which I am not able to do with Lancome's Artliner. Good for precise application and a softer look. The formula itself is a bit watery and took a few minutes to completely dry. It didn’t irritate my eyes. Contains 2.5 ml, a bit more than Lancome’s Artliner. I will give the black version a try as well.
Ingredients: water, calcium aluminum borosilicate, shellac, butylenes glycol, pentylene glycol, silica, acrylates/octylacrylamide copolymer, trilaureth-4 phosphate, tromethamine, peg/ppg-14/4 dimethicone, phenoxethanol, xanthan gum, ammonium acryloyl-dimethyltaurate/vp copolymer, isopropyl isostearate, polybutene, glyceryl stearate, sodium dehydroacetate, peg-20 methyl glucoses-esquistearate, tin oxide, ceteth-20, glyceryl stearate, tocopheryl acetate, tocopherol. +/- mica, yellow 5, yellow 5 lake, blue 1 lake, aluminum powder, aluminum hydroxide, ultramarines, bismuth oxychloride, chromium oxide greens, chromium hydroxide green, iron oxides, ferric ferrocyanid, ferric amomonium ferrocyanide, manganese violet, titanium dioxide.

This is a very pretty liner: jet black, glossy, lasting power is consistent. I have no problem removing or applying; I think the brush is a fair size. I mostly use this when I’m looking for a very dramatic look. Couldn’t see it being an everyday liner, but hey, some may be able to pull it off if done properly.

I purchased this after I could no longer find Anna Sui's liquid liner, and for what I paid, was very disappointed. Although the thin brush provides you the ability to make very precise lines, it dries very slowly, and it peels very easily.

I love the fact that the black colour is really intense and what u see on the brush is what u'll end up with on the eyes. Some eyeliners have thin liquidy formula and gives a grey black translucent feeling which i didn't like. So i'm pretty happy with the texture of this eyeliner. I love the brush, it's just the right hardness and allows me to draw very thin lines on my lower lids. In fact I use this for lowerlid only as nothing else looks natural and makes a perfectly thin line.
As for staying power, It's is great if you don't rub your eyes like crazy. I find that even it even stands up to an oil based makeup remover. But it would come off quite easily with hot water. So you can easily remove it without chemicals in the shower. :)
A bit pricy but the convenience makes up for it.

Really like this liquid liner, the best I've tried so far the only downfall is it's pricey and I use it every day so it doesn't last that long! Great long wear, and the tip is very fine so you can draw really fine lines or thicker.

I'm a real rookie when it comes to 'real' eyeliners, so I am super happy to have found this one without having to go through a ton of others. I've got the shakiest hands, so it was delightful to be able to lay down a nice fine line. I found that even with my oily skin/eyes, the liner lasted all day and well into the evening without any flaking or fading. It does take a little while to dry, but I think the results are well worth it. Yes, it's expensive, especially for the amount you get, but I suspect getting any more than what you get would result in you trying to use a dried up product. I think this falls into the "you get what you pay for" section of products, but I feel it's a worthwhile investment for a very special look.

Alright, I won't deny, this was a decent liner. The brush was longer and flimsier than my preferred felt tips but I've used them before and I'd like to think I'm good with liquid liners so I can use them (but they DO take extra time, not a plus).
They do set and don't budge, which is good for the day, and bad when you make a mistake. It also seems to crack a little when setting...I had to touch up after it dried once. And while it's drying and you try to apply a second coat, it pulls away the first coat and makes it look streaky...quite annoying. And like the others said, it take quite awhile to set as well.
And another thing, sure it doesn't rub off once it's set...if you don't have oily skin. I have oily skin...which means oily eyelids...and then it just kinda slips off, but not all of it...in patches. It happens to almost all my liquid liners...but when it happens to a 35$ liner, my dislike of it is way worse.

PROS: Lovely jet black lacquer-like finish when it (eventually) sets.
CONS: It takes forever to set! And because it takes forever to set it smudges, so when you try to fix it with a q-tip and some remover it makes an even bigger mess because it is extremely pigmented and won't go away with a few dabs/swipes of remover. So you have to swipe rinse and start again. Very frustrating.
The brush is fiddly, After trying several times to get the hang of it I resorted to using my own eyeliner brush instead.
Packaging is terrible. It's one of those odd shapes that you can never find no matter how well your make up stashes is organised. It has also become extremely difficult to open and I have to huff and puff to do so.
Would not repurchase.

I have been trying to search for my HG liquid eyeliner since Chanel discontinued my old HG eyeliner and switched to the click-click type. HATED they did that! I bought this Christian Dior liquid, the Lancome one, Vincent Longo, and the Givenchy liquid eyeliners. BAH, didn't like any of them. The Lancome one is probably the best but the tip is a bit too thick for me.
This eyeliner - the brush is too long, the fluid is almost too watery and doesn't spread on evenly, and gradually it gets harder and harder to unscrew the tip off the base. I began biting the base to twist the cap off -leaving big bite-marks in the plastic tube container. Annoying.
