I have used Maybelline regular kohl eyeliners before with no problems. I purchased this one as the kohl usually smudges and looks like dark circles under my eyes. Regular liquid liners tend to irritate my sensitive eyelids. So, I hear gel liners were good for sensitive eyes. Not this one, though - my eyes itched and got red within a few minutes every time, and I had to go to the eye doctor for an irritation from this one as it caused severe redness and swelling. The Loreal gel eyeliner worked for me, though. This one was dark (I got the black as well as the navy) and had a nice brush and package, but terrible for sensitive eyes. A waste of $12 as I was only able to use it a few times.
This mascara is great for sensitive eyes as it does not irritate or smudge. Unfortunately, it also does not do much more. It barely made my eyes lashes darker and did not make them look longer. To make them look just a little darker, I had to apply three coats. I returned it for Clinique Lash Power as I did not want to pay for a mascara that required 1/8 the tube with every use as it would last only 2-3 weeks. They need a richer or thicker formula. For those ladies who want to look as if they are not wearing mascara, this is a good one, though. I would not buy again as the price is too much for such a basic mascara. You are better off with Maybelline Great Lash for half the price.
I have sensitive eyes to harsh ingredients, but do not wear contacts. This is the best mascara I have used for sensitive eyes, and Clinique is the best brand for sensitive eyes. I have used Lancome and every single drug store brand. Even Almay has made my eyes itch after a few hours. The formula was light and build-able. It does require two or three coats after which my lashes looked darker and thicker. I have somewhat long lashes, but any girl would like a little more length. However, I did not see much lengthening there. It did hold the curl, though. The package is also great as is the brush. This is my go to mascara now. Now if only it could just be a tad more lengthening and cheaper, it would be 5 stars.
I really wanted to like this product because of the promise of lash growth. Although I have somewhat long lashes, I have a good amount of lash breakage and thinning from years of wearing mascara. I was disappointed with the brush and the large opening of the package as both were too large and clumsy looking. They allow waste of mascara. However, the worse part of this mascara was the irritation. My eyed itched like crazy although I don't wear contacts and they were red even an hour after I took it off. It also smudged a lot, and I usually don't have a problem with mascara smudging. The color was dark and it did make my lashes look thicker and it added some curl, but it did not appear much longer. So, this was a total no from the irritation to the smudging. I will not be purchasing Revlon eye products again as their liners and mascaras have been disappointing lately. This was such a waste of $10 as I was only able to use it twice.

This was the worse eye product I have ever used. I wore it two days in a row for a few hours, and it swelled up my eyes very badly. My eyes actually hurt. The color itself is nice, and the application is smooth and did not smudge a lot, but the ingredients are terrible and not safe for your eyes. I am very disappointed. What a waste of $8
