    Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Magic Ink:

    This product is easy to apply but if you're wearing it with an eyeshadow, it tends to sort of stick and the eyeshadow gets on your eyeliner. So, instead of it just being black, it is black and whatever color your shadow is. It's also very sticky and if you keep reapplying it leaves a weird flaky look. I think I'm just going to stick with Wet n' Wild's liquid eyeliner.

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Magic Ink:

      I found it difficult to apply, but I am all natural so I don't wear makeup. However, for the holidays I always apply a little.
      I liked that it did not irritate my eyes, even when some of the product got into my eyes. It lasts all day no need to re-apply. It comes off with regular makeup remover/jojoba/grapeseed oil. over all I am happy with the product.

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Magic Ink:

          I have tried many eye liners, more expensive then this, and was unhappy. I cannot get a thin line with any pencil I have used. The liquid pens don't work for me and I find they dry out quickly. An Ulta employee suggested this one and glad she did. Easy to apply and lasts most of the day. No eye irritation. I use Black.

            Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Magic Ink:

            I use this several times a week. The only time I don't and use a pencil eye liner instead is when I don't have the time to use the liquid because I know I might have to clean it up a little. I haven't completely mastered the eyeliner look and still have to clean it up sometimes with q-tips. I love the brush/packaging it comes in. So easy to hold and use and it lasts all day. It's the only liquid liner that I use and have been for years.

              This is a very nice eyeliner and I loved it. Too bad it blistered my eyes even though I was told it was hypoallergenic. My advice if you are even a tiny bit sensitive run don't walk the other way.

                        Magic Ink is not waterproof; however, it is a long lasting formula.
