I love Milani eyeliners. I really do. They have rarely led me astray. Liquifeye in black and aqua are both incredible, and their mechanical eyeliners have all been good to me in a pinch.

Until this one.

I picked this up on accident meaning to get the regular, non-glittery retractable one, and boy, was that a mistake. I am not sure why, but it seems to smudge and run more than the others and not set as fast.

Aside from those complaints, allow me to say to you that this is not a product for the faint of heart. When you hear "glittery eyeliner" you may picture a coquettish shimmer, a subtle sparkle when you turn in the light, drawing discreet attention to your eyes.

This is not a subtle eyeliner. There is nothing discreet about it. I can get behind a little glitter; I can even get behind a lot of it's fine and evenly dispersed and stays put. But this looks like a parade full of drag queens puked all over your face. And I do mean all over. The glitter does not adhere to the liner and I had glitter cascading down my cheeks and even all over my nose by the end of it. I even found it stuck to my glasses lenses where it had migrated down my lashes. It was a LOT of glitter. You can see it even looking at the pencil: the inside sparkles like the inside of a diamond mine. It is an OBSCENE quantity of the stuff.

If you're into that, pick this up. If you want something a little sparkly, don't. You will be picking glitter off your pillow for the next two months no matter how carefully you wash your face. And you're also going to have big raccoon eyes hours after you put it on, if you're me, since this stuff just did not want to stay put--adding insult to the sparkle injury.

This product was an impulse pruchase for me. I have never tried a glitter liner and I love retractable pencils, so I had to give this a try.
I got this in black just to be safe since I don't wear liners in a lot of other colors. The liner is a soft, retractable crayon with a smudge sponge on the opposite end. I don't understand why so many of these liners have the smudge sponge because I don't see myself using it. I have tried and it never works as the sponge just smears and absorbs the product; kind of wasteful imo.
The color is very dark with sufficient amount of glittery sparkles. The liner has good staying power and the glitter doesn't flake all over the place by the end of the day.
I really like the product and use it pretty much every day so I will probably repurchase once I run out.

I have this in terra brown and it is great. It is a wonderful coppery color with a bit of sparkle. I like that the pencil is thin so you can make thin lines. However, I have weird eye creases and it smudges a bit, but it doesn't show up with this color very much.

I'm surprised there are no reviews for this gem of an eyeliner. It is super pigmented and has a sufficient amount of glitter. What I like about it is the glitter pretty much stays put...there is some fallout but not much. I love glitter so I am very happy with this product. I have this in black and purple. The black is very dark and the purple is a true purple, not too dark and not too light, shows up on my skin perfectly. Lasts pretty much all day on me. I like this better than the UD glitter liners.
