I have deep-set hooded eyes, and this liner (Black-Brown 02) smears in perfect raccoon eye circles. The built-in sharpener is also very annoying to use.

Applies easily but smudges just as easily.
Makes a horrid mess.

I bought this at the same time as I bought Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner; UD I bought in a very dark blue color, this Almay in black. I loved the color of the UD liner--still do! so flattering and the dark blue whitens the eyes--but now I think it goes on a bit blotchy, and it does smudge by the end of the day.

And I'm liking this Almay more and more. It does take a few goes to get good coverage, so I get why people here are complaining about that, but it's much better than most drugstore liners in that regard. And once it's on, it's finely drawn and it stays. Also, the UD constantly requires sharpening. Kind of a drag.

If Almay would make this in a very dark blue, I'd buy it. As it is, it's now my go-to black liner.
BTW, other black liners I was using were Rimmell (looks great at first, then smudges), Lancome (makes my vision blur).

NOTE: Changed to 3 lippy rating; it began to wear off very easily. Now I've got UD Waterline in Legend. So far so good with that, but we shall see.

I got this eyeliner at Rite-Aid on a sale they had, I believe I paid about $3.50 for it.After trying it out for a couple weeks and using it daily, I realized I really dislike this eyeliner for a few reasons:

- it smudges like crazy (even with primer and eyeshadow on)
- it doesn't go on very dark
- It gets dull super easily, probably because its so creamy.

I went back and got my HG eyeliner which is CG INK IT, and ran out which in a desperate pinch for time I had to use this eyeliner again as back up and it just reassured me that it sucks. Blah

This is the eyeliner I use every day, and have been for years. It is easily applied, stays on and doesn't smudge away. I wouldn't even try another eyeliner from the drugstore. (The other eyeliners that I use occasionally are mac, and mineral powder.) The 'pencil sharpener' tool on the other end of it doesn't work for me because the product will just break off.. but I don't ever need to sharpen it.

I love how this eyeliner glides on so smoothly! My hands are too shaky for liquids and gels, so pencils are the way to go. This doesn't tug on your skin like those actual pencils. The consistency is in between a pencil and a gel actually. It can also blend out easily if you want a smokier look. It stays put and creases minimally (but still creases if you have super oily lids like me) I also really like how there's a built in sharpener.

I saw this at CVS for years but never bought it because I just assumed it wouldn't be good. I've used other waxy-type pencils in the past and wasn't impressed. However, I ended up purchasing this based on the reviews on this site. I SURE AM GLAD I DID !!! This stuff lasts forever and it doesn't leave dark circles under my eyes. Also, it is easy to apply it even over powder eye shadows without it doing a disappearing act. With my old eye pencil, as soon as powder got on it, it wouldn't work, but this pencil cuts through the powder eye shadows and keeps on working without me having to wipe it off. I will buy this again and again. The price is very reasonable, and often it is on sale, plus there are frequently discount coupons in the Sunday paper.

My only quibble, and to me it's a big one, is the packaging. What's wrong? Well, where do I put the cap when I'm using it? Every other pencil I've ever used has a cap that fits on the opposite end of the pencil when it's being used. That way, you never have to worry about losing the cap. But not this one. You have to just hold the cap in your free hand or put it on the counter and hope it doesn't roll away and get lost.

This is my go-to liner. My skin is EXTREMELY oily yet this liner stays put pretty well. The product does dry out and can be a little hard to glide on but the payoff is still worth it.

-very little smudging and none at all if you apply powder or primer before applying the eyeliner
-longest lasting crayon type eyeliner I've ever used
-very pigmented

-a bit dry in texture
-doesn't go on as easily as some other crayon eyeliners I've used. Dry so it tugs slightly on your lashline
-very minimal ability to smudge as the eyeliner goes on practically dry from the moment it touches your eyelid

General Comments
-the tip is a little thin so if you wan a really precise, thin line this is the pencil for you

I am in love with this eyeliner! I recommend it to everyone. One tip I would give is after applying this to your waterline go over the top of it with a matte black eyeshadow, truly makes it last all day without smudging :)
