Description/Overall Conclusion: I bought this in the teal color and I really, really wanted to like this but this marker, sadly, misses the mark. This is a marker style eyeliner which is a really cool concept but the color and wear of this product are piss poor, at best. I think I'm going to have to go beat the cosmetic lady at CVS over the head for talking me into buying this....she said I'd love it. She don't know me too well, do she?

RAVES: Packaging: I like the concept of a "marker" eyeliner that's very different from the 80's pen-style eyeliners that were absolutely HORRID. Ummm..that's about all the good stuff I can say. Moving on....

RANTS: Color: Well, when the package says teal I expect to see, well, teal. I don't think that's too much to ask. Instead, this looked almost black on me. What was weird though, is if I rubbed my finger over it to try to soften the look some, my finger would look teal but the line on my eye would still look practically black. WTF???? Wear: Ok..now I don't have oily eyelids. Like AT ALL. So why did this transfer from my lash line to my crease? That was a heck of a lot of traveling for such a litte bit of liner....oh...and it was not a pretty look to say the least. Not pleased, no, not pleased a'tall. Packaging: Ok, I know I said the marker concept was neat and it is. BUT I truly don't see how you're supposed to get a thin line with the marker. I used what was supposed to be thin side and my line was still pretty thick (and freaking dark!). I can't imagine how thick side would look or how the MA on the ad got that cool looking 60's swoop using this product. I'm betting they applied the product with several different brushes and didn't use the marker part???? At any rate, the packaging is neat but sucks at the same time, if that's at all possible.

Bottom line, I won't be repurchasing and wouldn't recommend this to others to purchase. If you really want to try it, borrow it from a friend who fell for it instead like my best friend is going to do... continued >>
