Most Helpful Positive Review Beats a dryer and brush!
I purchased this brush on a whim after watching a few hot air brush videos. I purchased the 1.5" brush and have been pleased with it for the most part.
I've been blow drying my hair with a round brush and a hair dryer (I use a John Frieda dryer, too), and was getting aggravated with the limpness and mild friz of my hair by the time I was done drying. I was also trying to simplify my styling in the morning now that it's getting more hot and humid. To run an 1875-watt hair dryer in a tiny bathroom is miserable. I was drenched in sweat by the time I was done! This brush only pumps out 500 watts, so the bathroom doesn't get as hot, but I also have to run the hot air brush through my hair a few more times to get the look I want. I start with my hair about 80% dry, put in a dollop of mousse, dry my hair upside down just a tad more, and then start with the hot air brush.
I was thoroughly impressed at how light and silky my hair was after the first time I used it, but I noticed that it wasn't adding as much volume as others had proclaimed in other reviews and even in YouTube tutorials. My guess is because I purchased the 1.5" brush, which is probably great at producing that straight, sleek look that I am (unintentionally) getting. I'll be purchasing/exchanging the 1" size to try it and see which brush I prefer. It could also be my hair that is causing the issue. I have really long, medium-thickness hair (not too thick, not too thin), so it's quite possible that it's too heavy to hold the style I was looking for. On the plus side, the frizz-free mane I get in the morning when I don't attempt anything fancy, lasts all throughout the day, even with the horrible humidity we've been having in our area lately.
Overall, this is a great tool. A little slick to hold--mine slipped out of my hand because I was holding it too close to the base and not close enough to the heat switch where it's more ergonomic (operator error), so just be careful.

Have used this eyeliner for several years with great results but the last one I bought broke as soon as I opened it and twice more, feels much softer than usual and messy to use.

MishyMash from Bellevue, WA
Having sensitive, mature and expressive eyes, my eyeliner often strays even when only lining my top lid. Usually stick to high-ends brands, but tried this on a whim - thank the heavens. Is glides on without pulling and the smudger helps to soften the line. About 30 seconds after applying, it sets and resists any smudging. It lasts all day and into the night with absolutely no caking, flaking or smudging. I tire of brown and black eyeliner, so the wide range of shades are amazing - love teal, green and grey. This eyeliner has made me take a second look at other Revlon products.
Longest lasting liner
Dduhon from Baytown,TX
This liner truly does last 24+ hours. I put it on before my work day went out that night and woke up the next afternoon still with liner on. It didn't smear or fade at all which is really surprising considering more expensive ones didn't last more than 12 hours of my work day.

ShuShu from Florence KY

I would not buy this again
Nana from Lubbock Texas
I didn't like this eyeliner I don't know if it was dry or I'm not using it right so I won't recommend it
Not bad but not the best
Nn from Elk Grove
I wear eyeliner almost every day and has just tried this one. It is great for the waterline but is really creamy and difficult to use on the top lid. I prefer a eyeliner pencil.
Doesn't smudge and stays long
V from Pleasant Hill
Easy to apply and the liner stays long. It doesn't smudge or anything 10/10
Nadia from NC
extremely hard to use, the color came out unevenly. the smudger tool does not work the way you would want it too, and neither does the "sharpener" on the end. the texture was way too soft and it crumbles every time i try to use it or apply even a tiny bit of pressure. definetly would not recommend
I will not buy this again
Jacqueline from State
I have always loved Revlon Colorstay eyeliner. Been using it for years. I don't know if this eyeliner came from a bad batch or what. It was so gooey like gum that I couldn't even use it. I decided to freeze it for 24 hours just to see if that would fix the problem, and it was still gooey and breaking off. Too bad my hubby threw my receipt away, and now I'm out that money. I'm so disappointed that I have to look for another brand of eyeliner, because this was my absolute favorite.
Good liner at a great price

Easily Glides in and Stays On
Doesn't Apply Smoothly
Athena from New Jersey
I bought the black violet color. It was super difficult to put on- dry and not very pigmented. Once it is on, it looks nice but my eyes were sore from how much I had to press to get any color payoff. Would not buy again.
Not as good as I remember
SC Mom from South Carolina
I used to love the Colorstay liner that was made in the early 2000s and 2010s, but they discontinued my favorite color and I moved on to a more expensive brand with a similar color. When I ran out of eyeliner, I thought I would give this another shot. Maybe I got an old one, but the pencil was dry and super waxy and the liner wore off by the end of my work day. In my memory, this was a much better product, I think it used to go on with a more creamy texture, didn't really pull your skin, and lasted all day. I returned this version.
I would give this product zero stars if I could!!
Me from IL
The lead is soft and breaks off when I'm tryi g to use it.
Complete opposite of colorstay
Hasana from NJ
I would not buy this product again. It's supposed to be long lasting but was just the complete opposite
Not smudge or waterproof
AJ from KCMO
I was very disappointed in this product. The actual product is much too soft for it's packaging, so with any sort of pressure it breaks off, making the sharpener tool totally useless. It also just smears everywhere throughout the day. Even after and hour I have flakes and smears from above the eyelid that have come down to under my eyes.
DeltaRie from Indiana
Bought four colors, opened the black/violet, unable to get a line drawn AT ALL. The amount of pulling and dragging on the eyelid to get this pencil to leave the faintest of lines is ridiculous. I am stunned. The unopened pencils will be returned and I'm upset I got stuck with the one I opened. Defective product.
I love this eye pencil. And I would buy it again.
Makeup lover from I love home, USA
I love it that it glides on so easily. The color is great and it stays on all day.
I would buy again
J F from Charlotte,NC
I have been wearing this liner for years, so yes I love it. I have tried other brands(expensive ones too), but this is the best waterproof liner in my opinion.
Liner that STAYS!!
Ms. S from Rockledge FL
It last and it stays on!!! Love it! Still very small point where it applies! I hate when they liners wear and spin them out and it's a huge line where you're applying it.

I like the color but the eyeliner is so dry I can barely apply it. Not usable.
Dried up eyeliner
Nancy from Corpus Christi, Texas
Could not use product, very dried out, no color saturation. I was very disappointed with a almost $10.00 cost that I was unable to use it.
Would not buy this product again
Ange ann from Ny ny
The black pencil was not dark enough for my use
