Most Helpful Positive Review Love it
I love the self-sharpening! I actually have to get used to using such a pointed tip...I'm so used to working with a blunt one. But a thin line is so easy, every time. With a change in angle, a thicker line is easily applied and makes a cute cat-eye or contour line on the lid. Because it's dermotologist approved, I feel safe applying it to my water line and tight-lining my upper lid. I've had no issues with running into my eye or smudging. And the black color is really rich black. I compared it to a similar smashbox liner, which looked like a dark brown in comparison with Maneater! I'm interested to see what happens if the tip ever breaks. Supposedly you twist the cap on and off until it's sharp again, but without another manual way to push the liner up, I'm wary. Hopefully I won't have to deal with it, because it glides on so smoothly. There's no tug on my lid or pressure put on the liner that would cause it to break from use. Hopefully, I'll be surprised by the ease of getting a sharp point back if I do have to deal with it. End of the day, it's my new favorite liner!
Most Helpful Critical Review Starts out great then complete fail
I got this as a gift with a past order. I liked that I could do a thin or thick line and I could get it into my lash line without any gaps. It self sharpens every time you twist the cap back on which I think wastes a lot of product. After having it a few weeks the tip kept breaking off completely wasting more product. It only lasted about 5 or 6 weeks. I would never pay $20 for this knowing how it works. The design is a good idea but still needs some work. You should be able to at least choose when you want to the sharpener to activate to help save product.

Perfect Eyeliner Pen
Sarah from Virginia
I've used several different pens, but I love Maneater by Tarte. It glides on smoothly but it's precise as a pen should be.

i love this liner and i have never found another one like it. i've looked and looked but haven't found one. it applies so easily which is why i love it. i will say that if applied to waterline it will come off easily but so will any other eyeliner. i love it!
Don't like self-sharpening
Chelsea from Deer Park, Tx
Although I did like the bold color and precision of this eyeliner, I absolutely hated the self sharpening aspect because I feel like a lot of the product was wasted due to this feature. Won't be buying again.
Stephanie from RI
smooth, easy to apply, and stays on great all day.
HalJacksxo from US
The pencil is very dry and breaks easily. I'm not impressed with the lack of pigmentation either. There are better options out there.
Would not recommend.

Only comes in black. Unable to make the point longer.

I haven't bought it YET, but am ordering this today! Your reviews shave sold me!!! Just wish I had bought it when it was on sale. 🤓
Best Eyeliner Pencil
Lucky Lucy from Florida
I always stock up when this Maneater eye liner is on sale. I like that it self sharpens. You just have to be careful and not turn the top to hard and there's no problem.
This is the product that made me an Ulta customer!
Jenskibum from Kenyon, MN
I wandered into Ulta for the first time a couple of years ago. It was one of the beauty days & this eyeliner was one of the deals. I tried this & haven't been able to live without it ever since! This product stays put until I remove it and the self sharpening tip makes for a close perfect line every time!
Won't last long.
Megan3 from IL
The tip of the eyeliner would break off after a day or two of when it is sharpened. That waisted a lot of the eyeliner in the pencil. It does not last long. Would not recommend. I have bought this twice now and it continued to do the same thing as the first time around. Very disappointed as I really like this brand.
Great formula, poor design
smartgirl shopper from USA
The formula for this Maneater pencil liner, applies with good coverage, dark black, and stays well. The ingredients are better than average. However, the pencil sharpens itself by twisitng the lid on and off. I returned 2 of them, because after using them only a few times, they broke off inside the lid and would not twist back up anymore. As a result of the constant sharpening, you get a precise point everytime, but, it doesn't last long; making it not very economical. Also, it doesn't advance high enough, so the plastic rim that the tip of the pencil sits in, interferes with the application. Bottom line, love the formula, hate the sharpening design.
I buy this eye liner again and again.
Diney from Sussex, WI
The fact that the pencil always has a point makes it easy to draw a thin line. The fact that it sharpens itself by just putting the top back on is amazing!
Danielle from Erie, Pa
I got this eyeliner hoping it would be good for my water line. One hour after applying it was all smudged away. If you are looking to use another way this product may be for you.

My favorite eyeliner, rich color and doesn't run , stays put very well through the day.

Absolutely awesome eyeliner. Glides on easy and sharpens for every use!
It kept braking and braking
Paola from St. Louis, MO
I love this product at first. It was easy to use and it was a great color. Unfortunately it kept breaking and breaking and I was not able to use the rest of the product every time I try to sharpen it will brake so I finally decided to throw it away.
Stocking up on this liner!
Cat from Arizona
I got this in one of my Boxycharm boxes and I was hesitant to use it because I always end up looking like a raccoon. Pencil eyeliner does not work well with me and they always bleed and run down. But this glides on smoothly on my waterline and stays put through a 12 hour hot factory shift. Even my friends took notice and they went bought them too. Best part is that it's self sharpening.
I would buy this product again!!
Jen from Omaha, Ne
This eyeliner is definitely the best eyeliner I have ever used! Doesn't smudge and last all day long! I will definitely buy this again and again!

Love it sweat proof
Casey from Amarillo tx
I loved it I sweat alot at work and it doesnt come off. I've tried everything so I'm so happy to have found this, down fall its always out they only carry a few in stock.
Tip breaks off consistently
Ness from Pennsylvania
I've purchased this multiple times and I enjoy how it goes on and how it stays put, however, the tip is constantly breaking off. I've kept on buying it thinking maybe it was just a bad batch but it's been more than half of the ones I've used. I feel like it's a huge waste of money because so much is wasted every time the tip breaks. I won't be purchasing this again.
Great product that goes so fast
Kaci.Free from SC
I loved this product and literally used it every day except for maybe some weekends but usually I don't do makeup on those days. I think this product lasted me for maybe a month. My eyes are super small so it wasn't as if I was using a lot of the product daily. I'm also not super skilled in eye makeup so I just do the bare minimum. I feel like the self sharpening tool is making the product go faster than it should. It makes sense that you are probably losing product every time it sharpens. I just think for the price, the brand, etc....it should have lasted longer than it did. Otherwise, great eyeliner!
My holy grail liner
Kvv27 from Vancouver, wa
I've used so many different ones and I always come back to this.
Brightsmiles303 from Reading, PA
I like this eyeliner for its smooth consistency. It glides nicely for an everyday look. The only downside is that you do not get as long of use. The little triangle of product is all that you get. So not really the most cost efficient.
