                I bought this eyeliner for one specific reason, a family members funeral and the main reason I purchased it was because it states that it was waterproof. It did exactly as it advertised! I now wear it everyday and will purchase it from now on!

                loved everything about it. Does everything it says it does. one major flaw for me is it only lasted me 3 weeks of normal use. for the price tag it needs to last me longer than that.

                      I have this in two shades, Violetta and Penny Lane, and both look fantastic. They apply really well and stay on all day. I also have one of the 3-D liners and I have to say that I haven't had any of the problems with running through product that other people mention in reviews. They've all worked out very well and I will definitely buy more when I finish.

                          How "long" is the product, in terms of the eye liner inside the plastic? I got one of these in a sample and it was gone after about 10 uses that made me very sad! Trying to figure out if this sample was the full size or truly, a sample.

                            Hi There! As you twist the cap on an off (do not twist and click, or pump) a mold in the lid reshapes the tip of your liner, so your pencil is Always Sharp. You should definitely get more than 10 uses out of this product.

                            Try these steps:

                            Put the cap on the liner.
                            Then, put your left hand on the cap and your right hand on the base.
                            Twist your right hand in the direction of the arrow and your left hand the opposite way.
                            You will feel that you have to twist past a point of tension; proceed, and you will hear a click.
                            Remove the cap.

                            That should sharpen it!
