Let’s be real, liquid eye liner can range from $5, $10, $20 so let’s grade this for the price range it resides. Package is seal so I know no one used it and it hasn’t sat around to be dried up. Pen is hex shape so I’m not struggling to take the cap off. The line from the pen is really fine and brush stroke has some stiffness to allow you create that nice cat eye like it’s meant to be. Color is dark, vibrant not dry and any eye shadow application doesn’t smudge it as long as you let it dry first. I put it in my hand and used water to smudge it and it does come off to a faded gray but overall I’m surprise with the quality. Stayed on for the whole day. Totally will purchase again.
Precise- The tip is precise and easy to apply. It looks deep black just like the videos, giving eyes a clean, sharp look. Not waterproof or resistant- Definitely not water resistant. It comes off with a bit of water. *I have a bit of more oily skin than normal, so maybe this is why it’s not completely water resistant for me. I know Maybelline sells a stronger liquid in almost the exact pen, so I may try that out instead!* Hope this helps!
Ordered this because it said water resistant. It definitely was. I tested it first on my hand and it did not come off instantly with water and soap. It was easy to put on, one swipe each eye and the application was very smooth. The applicator felt more like a brush than I expected. I wore it for over 12 hours and it didn't smudge. I use coconut oil to remove make up before washing my face, and it worked easily. Definitely recommend. I just received it and am ready to order a few more just to have on hand. I do see what some people said about the cap being a little tricky, but its not enough for me to take off any points off.
Cap wouldn't go on easily...even when I thought it was on securely it would pop off randomly. Tip too soft, difficult to control. Product was dried out and unusable in a matter of about 2 weeks. Tried moistening the tip with water to get more use out of it but that was a waste if time.
As with all my Maybeline cosmetics, I love this pen. This is smudge proof, water resistant and wears like iron. I couldn't cry it off. EDIT: After using this pen for approximately 1 week, it completely dried out! I'm not very impressed like I was when I first wrote my review!
Nope. It took FOREVER to dry and then flaked off throughout the day. Wipes off easily with no effort. Did not stand up to my post partum hormonal crying.
+ also weirdly way too wet?????? Like the control is rather terrible due to how wet this thing is! Idk if that’s why it takes forever to dry and isn’t holding up well? But this didn’t do well for me and my oily eyelids.
I want to like this eyeliner. It’s nice, deep black, and thick. The tube is nicely ergonomic and sleek. However, it’s EXTREMELY dry. I opened the cap and have to do a few practice lines on a qtip or my finger because it’s absolutely dry at first. Like of like testing a marker and it eventually starts working again. Good eyeliner, but the dryness is annoying
This eyeliner was horrible. Definitely NOT waterproof at all. It was very hard to use, came out of the tip in spurts not smoothly. After finally getting it in place and looking decent it ended up smudged all over the place within hours. Will not buy this ever again!
This is the best eyeliner I have ever owned. The only thing I could say is try not to hit the brush with the lid. It is easy to get it back into a point with a wet paper towel. I have only had this happen twice in about a year. I would recommend this to everyone.
