I have the waterproof version of this product.I do like this product for a beginner make up artist, it's an easy brush to use for first time eyeliner-applyers.However I do find pigmentation on this product to be quite patchy and sometimes watery in places,But what I dislike most, and I think this is due to the waterproof part in the formula, is the way it removes. It comes off in flakes and little chunks that can be painful if you get them in or around the sensitive skin of your eye. Also the packaging leaves something to be desired, you kind of need to "pull" on the cap to get the brush out, and if you're not careful you'll catapult the brush halfway across the room.UPDATE: I changed my 'Would I buy this again' answer from a yes to a no. After a couple of more tries I realised just how crumbly this formula is when you rub it or take it off. It irritates my eyes and the skin around it so badly I will not be repurchasing this.

When I first bought this eyeliner,I have to admit I was not expecting much.Who could,at such a low price? But when I tried it out at home,I found out it was one of the best eyeliners I had ever tried out! The brush is so convenient,as it makes the application of the product smooth and easier. The product is really pigmented,long-wearing and it dries out fast. Essence's 'Liquid Ink' eyeliner is one of the best products the brand owns!

This is my holy grail (the waterproof one). I put it on in the morning, very easily and it lasts all day perfectly. No more expensive ones for me, I loooooove this one!

I always buy this eyeliner. The major reason is the low price. Although I don't use it solely - it tends to crack into visible pieces on my eyelid, so I always put it as a top coat on the Essence pencil eye liner. This combination creats a fuller eye makeup, doesn't look too neat and fake what eyeliners often do. Sometimes irritates eye corners.

I have avoided Essence before because the packaging looks pretty cheap, and the prices ARE cheap. However, I was looking for a new eyeliner because my Stila one is just crap. I didn't want to waste NZ$20+ on another one that was the same. These are about NZ$5, i swatched it on the back of my hand and it looked just okay. I've never used a brush applicator before, I've always stuck to the pen types because I figured they would be much easier to use. Well, for me, now, I have found that was 100% wrong. This is SO much easier to apply a straight and even line and it gets right into my lash line. Black as can be, and this has lasted on my eyes. All my more expensive ones have always flaked or faded off especially on the wing part, this doesn't. I got the normal version, not the waterproof. From the reviews it looks like that one is better, and I might pick it up because the price is so great. Very impressed.

I bought the waterproof version of this and I loved it! It was really black and would not budge. I have oily eyelids and this didn't slip. Also, it really is waterproof! I use cleansing oil to remove this on my eyelids--real easy! I was so happy since it is dirt-cheap but delivers astounding results.HOWEVER. On my second week, it starts to flake off! I don't know the reason why because I've never changed nor included anything new on my make-up routine :( We we're going along so well, Essence Liquid Ink Liner, and you had to mess that up :( It flakes like crazy by mid-day and the flakes go everywhere on my face, even my boyfriend and my MOM had commented on it.Overall a good product but I just don't know why it keeps flaking off, I tried using a primer underneath it but to no avail. Will probably repurchase since its really cheap :) hehe

I bought this eyeliner and its waterproof counterpart on a search for affordable liquid liners. The normal one is entirely forgettable; it smudges and crumbles and has no staying power. The WATERPROOF version, however, I use daily!! It doesnt have a separate page on this site yet, so I'll just say it here: it is absolutely amazing, and dirt cheap. Once you've learned to really wipe your applicator brush on the rim of the little tube before applying, the brush allows for some damn precise line-work. It comes out really black, doesn't crumble, and stays all day.

This is such a great eyeliner and for such an affordable price. Essence has some great products for real cheap which is why its one of my favourite brands. I dont really care much for the packagin because really, the simpler the packaging, the more inexpensive the product is. The eyeliner itself is very opaque and is honestly jet black. Only one application is needed. Theres no need to go over lines again or anything, which is a major pro for me. Although, it is a VERY inky eyeliner, the trick is to scrape the excess (which there will be alot of) off the brush before application to prevent smudging or ugly lines. The eyeliner lasts for a very long time and for only AUD$6, its worth a shot.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
