This was the first pen-style liquid liner I tried out, and it’s really impressed me overall. My current one is about to dry out, and I’ll definitely be repurchasing.
The sleek thin packaging of this really appeals to me, and it’s very functional with a tight-fitting cap and flat ends so it can be stood up in a jar/container easily. The tip is basically like a very fine tapered felt pen, which means it’s both firmer and more easily controllable than the brush-style liquid liners I’d tried in the past. It’s easy to make a very thin line, and easy to thicken it up because of the taper. The ‘ink’ (liner) flows smoothly, and up until very recently, when it’s started to dry up (I’ve had it for a good few months longer than recommended… oops), the pigmentation has been continuous and very black.
This dries in a matter of a minute or two to a fairly matte/satin finish, making it perfect for a classic retro cat-eye flick. It isn’t waterproof, but I’d say it is fairly water-resistant – a quick walk in the rain won’t leave you with black streaks everywhere, although a shower definitely will. :P Because of this it’s no trouble to remove – micellar water does the trick easily, as does my usual oil or balm cleanser.
Honestly, I don’t really have any complaints with this product. It’s affordable, easy to find (you can pick it up along with the groceries at the supermarket!), and simple to use. I’d definitely recommend it to someone just starting out with liquid eyeliner, as well as anyone else looking for a reliable and easy-to-use liner option.
This was the first liquid eyeliner I had ever bought because I needed (yes needed) to up my game and try the cat eye out (Note: I have very hooded eyes and this is just not a look I can do due to it being well... invisible when I open my eyes, I can do it... it looks great then I open my eyes and where did it go?!). So this product isn't obviously going to work well for me for it's intended purposes but I have re-purposed it and found that it is great for makeup for fancy dress... it stays put and dries quickly. It doesn't appear to be waterproof however so a brief shower of rain has this tearing down my face. Also this makes it easy to wash off but being water resistant would be handy regardless. It may have been entirely due to being below my eye line and not above it where it wouldn't be subjected to the volume of liquid that would wash it away normally and I will note that it only smudges it not disappears completely.
It's not bad, but I haven't exactly stuck to the rules of proper usage. I love the way the brush tip glides effortlessly, it creates bold and thin lines with ease and the pigmentation is solid.
Tips: Logical tip here but mistakes were made... make sure the cap is on properly otherwise it will dry out (oops).
I do like the packaging. It's simple and compact allowing you to carry it anywhere without the fear of it leaking since the cap is locked on.
The brush is very fine and tapers to a tip that allows for thin and precise line application. I also like the formula as it doesn't tug and does allow for a smooth line and the perfect wing to be drawn (or any other eyeliner look that you want to rock). I do find that the colour is more of a grey and you have to keep going over the line to get an intense black which often makes the line messy and thicker, so I'm not a huge fan of that.
As for smudgeproof and waterproof - definitely not in my opinion. It always smudges on me and I end up with panda eyes, which is not a trend that I like. It smudges within a couple of hours on me and simply does not last - even when I wear eye primer. Possibly because of this, it does come off super easily and I just use Garnier Micellar water to remove it.
Due to the smudging and grey colour pay off, I am not a huge fan of this eyeliner and would not repurchase this.
Tips: If you want an 'invisible' eyeliner look, just do dashed lines on the lash line rather than a solid continuous line
I absolutely love this liquid liner - I could not live without it. It's so easy to use, so easy to fix up if you make a little boo-boo, and so affordable! I've tried a fair few other liners but none came close to this little gem. Might not be the best on the market at staying put, but I find it fine for a whole work day, then a quick reapply at 5:30 if needed :)
This liner has really great potential, it's not super expensive for a liquid pen and is fantastically easy to use, but it just dries out so disastrously quickly! Within about two weeks of using this liner it had dried out to the point where it was practically unusable - to get any product out at all I had to apply so much pressure that I lost all precision... which is kind of the whole point of liquid pens!!
I also didn't find it to be a particularly rich black, which is definitely my preference.
Don't waste your time, spend the extra $12 and get the Stila Stay All Day.
I bought this after hearing an endless string of great reviews. It is a pen format, which makes it really easy to use. Uncap the lid and you see a small flexible felt tip style nib, which makes drawing a precise line easy.
I prefer to use the tip and the flat edge of the nib towards the tip for the most precision. You do have to be a bit careful as the nib widens quite a bit towards the base and will produce quite a thick line. You could use this part to make a wing quickly but I usually just line the top lashes without a wing.
Now for why I gave it a 2/5 stars: it dries up really quickly. Far too quickly. I probably only had two months max use out of this, and I didn't use it everyday. Towards the end it became very greyish also, not like the nice dark black it was at the beginning. Not sure if I got a dud or not but I'll stick with pot format liquid liners and gel eyeliners for now.
