Benefits:
  • Can be used on inner rim
  • Precision of a liquid liner in a fool-proof pencil
  • Waterproof and non-flaking

    The best eyeliner I've found for everyday application. It doesn't smudge and stays on all day. I work in a hospital and am running all day long, sometimes in humid environments too. It never looks clumpy or unnatural.

      I bought two of these, one as a gift. I should've tested the color before I bought it, because I was expecting a different color. I returned it for a different product, but I loved it otherwise.

            An ulta rep had recommended this to me one time. It stays put all day and does not run like some other eye liners I had used in the past. It will fade over time but is easy to re-apply. I just like that if I'm playing golf or tennis on a hot day I don't have to worry about it melting under my eyes and making me look like a ghoul

                It takes a little practice to get this to go on smoothly. Long lasting and good color. One important thing is you have to have the top screwed on before turning the bottom to advance the pencil.

                  I love this product! It's my favorite eye liner because it doesn't smudge and lasts all day/night! The self-sharpener is great because you can add a thin or thick line with a bold color. I wish there were more of the product inside the liner so it would last me longer than a month or two of use.

                    Great for tightline and always having a sharp point is great. I'm allergic to many plum shades but not this one. The dark blue color does wind up under my eyes tho. Easy as it is to apply it is hard to get off. But it's a trade off. The mark Jacobs is great too but also hard to remove

                        Hi There! As you twist the cap on an off a sharpener in the lid refines and feeds the tip, so your pencil is Always Sharp. If you need to advance the liner hold the pencil just below the tip and pull down.

                      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.
