Usually, I have issues with felt-tip liners drying and crumbling on my lids, but this goes on so pigmented and smooth, it's amazing! Even after a rough 27 hour day when all my other makeup had melted away, this liner held up. Sometimes pen liners don't let the formula flow all the way to the tip to allow for precise, pointy lines, but this liner does it no problem. Totally in love, I use it all the time.
Most Helpful Critical Review Cheap packaging
I bought this about a month ago at my local Ulta, and was so satisfied with the formula! As summer has been getting hotter my wings have started to melt and need re-applied maybe once. At some point the Cap popped off in my makeup bag and now my brand new pen that's been used less than 10 times is completely dried out. As I have been trying to rewet the tip the red from printed part on the bottle has rubbed all over my hands and they are stained red. I'm so upset, I do like the product, but I do not usually spend this much on liner and it's packaging is far worse than the cheap stuff that is still in my bag. Will not be trying this brands eyeliner again unless the packaging/lid is fixed.

Confused by bad reviews
Celine from NYC
I've been using this eyeliner for the past 3-4 years after I stopped buying KVD ink liner. I did a test in the store of a bunch of liquid liners and almost bought Benefit's roller lash, but when I went to wipe them off my hand, Smashbox was the one that stayed put. If you're looking for the absolute blackest eyeliner, there are probably better ones out there, but this one lasts even if I rub my face during the day or nap and it's super easy for me to do basic eyeliner application. The tip feels nice, not too wet or bendy like I found KVD's tattoo liner but precise. One eyeliner will typically last me around 5 months and I wear it every day. I've bought this product at least six times and never had the pen dry up quickly like some of the reviews are claiming. The cap could be better but as long as you're not throwing your makeup around or tossing it loose in your suitcase or backpack, you shouldn't run into any issues! I've been satisfied with this product for the past several years and haven't felt a need to try different brands' eyeliner pens since I discovered this one.

Went to use this today. And it was dried out. I got it yesterday.
Loved but now hate
Michelle from Texas
I've used this for about a year now. My first product was AMAZING, lasted forever and was easy to apply. My newer pen does one eye amazing and a minute later it's DRY to do the second eye. I have tried shaking it, I store upside down. No idea why it doesn't work well. Will not be buying again. I'm gonna go back to my KAT VON D tattoo liner
Not happy with results
AZHelloKittyFan from Peoria, AZ
Hard to apply as it does not come out of the tip very well. Takes forever to put on very dry. Very matte. Comes off super easy if you rub your eye or eyes water which is strange because I put it on my hand and it's hard to remove. I thought it would stay on great but does not. Way too expensive to come off that easily.
No I wouldn't use this product again unless you can send me
Jackie from Farmington hills mich
I've only used the product once, then it dried completely out and the brush head became hard. I LOVE Smashbox products, I've used it for many years, this malfunction of this product is making me second guess what else is out there.
I love the eyeliner but the packaging is terrible.
ereiter25 from Ventura, CA
I've used this eyeliner for years but I hate the new packaging! The cap doesn't stay on (or is really hard to snap on completely) so the liner dries up. My new product was used only a few times before the cap fell off and it dried up. Bring back the old packaging!
Best waterproof liner ever
Soph from Utah
I do underwater performing, and I LIVE for this eyeliner. It stays on like crazy even after rigorous swimming, sweating, and pat-drying my face with towels. It is super pigmented and lasts a long time.
ally from Louisiana
I love this eyeliner!! it's so precious, goes on smoothly, and stays all day!! wha hoo an eyeliner that does what it's designed to do!
One of the worse liquid eyeliners I've ever used.
Everleigh from Fairfield, CT
I have to go over the same spot multiple times for it to even show up. Half the time it applies so thin and sheer it looks like a mess by the time I'm done. I'm genuinely surprised this eyeliner is still on the market. I'm so disappointed I spent the money on it. I definitely should've read the reviews first.
lainey from tea
ive used this eyeliner for awhile now and i have no complaints :) the color payoff is great and making wings is super easy! however i wouldn't recommend for beginners with liquid eyeliner
Doesnt work for my oily skin
Upsetclient101 from Stockton ca
I hate this! I was told it was going to last (by the ulta employee) she said it would last all day and it comes off right away!
Literally the worst liner
Natalie from Columbus
How is this liner still on the market? I used it once and it dried up immediately. Impossible to make wings, stiff tip, even the color payoff is terrible. If you have a couple wrinkles on your lids, FORGET ABOUT IT. Discontinue this liner and try again.
Love the product, hate the lid
A from New Jersey
This is by far my favorite liner. It is easy to apply and stays put all day. The first one I bought lasted several months. I now have bought 3 in the last month because the lid comes off in my makeup bag and the liner drys out completely. Very frustrating.
Didn't even work on one eye! :(
K10 from North Carolina
I just got this in my boxycharm box and was so excited to have some fresh eyeliner to wear for my brothers wedding! I went to put it on and literally got like half an eye done and it wouldn't even work anymore, I was so sad!
Barbara from USA
I've tried several drug store brands and they never lasted all day and smeared. I bought the Morphe pot and loved the way it went on so smoothly but it faded several hours later.
I finally made the splurge and bought this one. Omg! It's been a game changer for me! It goes on smoothly and it lasts all day. It's so easy to apply. I'm able to make a thin or thick line easily. The cat eye look is amazing using this liner.
It's totally worth the money!
The only one that stays put
Jrobbi from Springfield, MA
This is the only liquid eyeliner that stays put for me. I can put it on at 6:00 am and it doesn't melt into my eyes all day long. Agree with others that cap doesn't always stay secure, you. We'd to make sure it's on tightly.
Just not for me
Ari from Cincinnati
I tried this out because the tip looked like it would make precise wing, however I had to keep going over it multiple times to get even the slightest of black to show up. It's also very crusty and doesn't last, sorry but this just wasn't for me
Very nice product! worth every penny
Marvic from San Diego
I have very bad seasonal allergies so my eyes tend to be watery all day, before finding this product I had a lot of trouble finding an eyeliner that stayed with me through the day and this was it! love the matte finish and being available to draw a very fine line with the tip. Also, you don't really need to go over the same line twice, the product gives you the exact amount so you don't have to waste it by applying multiple layers.
Does not last the day
Syrena from MN
I usually use the stilla liquid eyeliner and I love it but I decided to try this because I wanted something a little thicker. The shape of the tip is awesome but it doesn't last. After a few hours it just flakes off, even with a shadow primer. Wanted to love it but I don't.
Season from Atlanta
I have been buying this eye liner for years and it's amazing. However, over the last few months, I have gone through 3 in less than 3 months because the top pops off even though you think you had it closed. After reading the reviews, apparently I am not alone. Smashbox, fix this!!! I can't keep buying eye liner that may only last a week before I have to throw it out.
The product is amazing but the container renders the product completely useless.
Kathy372 from Prior Lake, MN
Not completely waterproof as advertised but long wearing, goes on quick and smooth, dries fast.
My favorite liner
April__v from USA
This has lasted so longgg I love it!!'
I would buy this again
Cilla from Pasadena Tx

Raidergirlie from Hayward
It goes on easily stays on all day..the tip is a little firm the 1st few uses , but then it becomes more flexible..I hate the new packaging the lid is a bad design..please go back to the old packaging.. the color of the product is very dark black, which I love..
