About Me Natural Style

Pros

  • Easy To Apply
  • Good Pigmentation
  • Long Lasting

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Daily Use
    • Oily Skin

    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.

      Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Magic Ink:

      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.

              This eyeliner is the bomb! The stem on the applicator is just the right length. You are not too close or too far from your eyelid, making control super easy. The deep richness of the black gel really pops. I's waterproof, however, does take a minute or so to dry--which is my one and only negative! ;p

                  Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Magic Ink:

                  Tried this on the suggestion of a store employee. Not disappointed and I have not had much luck with liquid liners. Can make a thin line and a good size to handle. I still lose the inside corner during the day but easy to reapply if need be. Bought one for my daughter to try.

                      Goes on messy, wears off quickly, and the brush included creates a very awkward line style. Won't buy it again

                      I received Magic Ink as a birthday present. I did not like this eyeliner from the get go due to the brush. Despite this I decided to give it a try. The eyeliner would slake even before my lunch time at work. What a shame

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