Most Helpful Positive Review Perfect Blend Cobalt Blue
It's hard to understand why this color was discontinued. There are hundreds, if not thousands of blacks, browns, charcoals and combinations thereof available. Blue eyeliner is tricky at best, and can easily mess up an otherwise nicely made up face. The other blues on the market, whether pencil (you sharpen), retractable pencil, liquid etc., most of which I've tried, simply miss the mark! Either by the color being very harsh, shiny and/or totally unnatural. The claims of lasting all day and staying put are false. This pencil, which allows for a very fine point if wanted, is invaluable. It does not run or smudge, even if one tends to have oily eyelids. This all speaks to why CG perfect blend pencil is exceptional, even compared to much more expensive eyeliners. However, above all else, Cobalt Blue and the color it lays down sets it above all else on the market for anyone wanting a blue eyeliner that looks appropriate. A lot of women who use other colors of eyeliners would be well served to try cobalt, to accentuate their eyes without looking harsh and unnatural. Please bring this color back.
Most Helpful Critical Review not so good

Reviewed by 281 customers Smoky Taupe = Necessity!
Carla_N from Dallas TX
Taupe is a difficult shade to find in an eyeliner, and I'm not sure I could live without Smoky Taupe!
I'm brunette, NW15, green eyes, and Smoky Taupe is my go-to soft neutral liner for lower lids.Smoky Taupe is, true to its name, a soft light-medium greyish brown with the slightest hints of a yellow undertone in strong light - just enough to render it "neutral."
It works for my brows, too.
This liner is nicely pigmented, with only the tiniest suggestion of dryness, which isn't a problem on my very oily skin. Smoky Taupe goes on smoothly and wears well. It defines without looking harsh, which is ideal for those of us who are pale-skinned and over 50. I hope this is NEVER discontinued!
I really love this pencil

I being use this pencil for more than 3 years and I love it
Smoky Taupe = Love
CarlaN from Dallas TX
I really like "Smoky Taupe." I think the color is best described as a light cool brown, but it's perfect for a subtle look. It could be creamier, but it applies smoothly and wears well on my oily skin. It's ideal for the bottom lash line.

is this liner hypoallergenic? If not are any of your liners hypoallergenic?
PLEASE bring back MINK!
Kate726 from North Carolina
I have used mink for forever and nothing else compares. I have tried other brands and nothing resembles mink. Please bring it back. Even when it wasn't discontinued, it was hard to find on store shelves. It was obviously a color a lot of people wanted.

I wish Covergirl would bring back the Perfect Blend Eyeliner color Mink....it was my favorite. There is nothing that compares.

Where is the cobalt blue I love so much????
nannnnnnnnn from Pennsylvania
Where is the cobalt blue I love so much???? I love this product. But not the color choices. I want my blue! I would give it a five if they had blue. But if the color palette suits you the product is very nice! It holds up well and yet washes off easily it's just the perfect combo.
Where's my favorite???
CoachesX2 from Tennessee
I love the color "Mink" but I can not find it anywhere??? Why have you all quit making it???
Won't buy again.
Lee from Nashville, TN
Trying different eye liners hoping to find the right one and this is not it. Within a couple of hours is was smeared under my eyes and the color faded quick.
Where is my favorite Mink color
Micki777 from Akron, Ohio
I only gave 4 stars. I do love the product. However I have use the Mink eyeliner and it was my favorite till it was ripped off the shelves. I still haven't found another color or brand with a color close to it. So sad without my favorite Mink eyeliner from Cover Girl.
Stays On For A Long Time!
Ladybug25 from Orlando, FL
I've had thinning brows for years now. I'v been using Covergirl Perfect Blend Eye Pencil (in black/brown) and this product fills in my brows perfectly. It goes on very smoothly and stays in place for a long time! I would not use anything else on my brows and I'm very happy I found this wonderful Covergirl eyeliner.
Momluvsmakeup from New Jersey
I don't apply my eyeliner on the bottom of my eye and at the end of the day with this eyeliner I look like a raccoon. The eyeliner completely disappeared from where it was applied but somehow ended up entirely all over under my eye. It was so embarrassing

You Dropped The Best Color
veryblue62 from New York, NY
I have tried all the colors that are still in the Perfect Blend group & the wrong shade was dropped.The smoky taupe barely shows up on my lid.
Mink was the best color - period:
That was the only CG product that I used & faithfully for years. So long!
Bring back cobalt blue!
Lynne Z from undisclosed
Bought this as a substitute since you discontinued the cobalt blue I have been buying for years. It looks terrible on me and makes me look tired. Please bring back the cobalt blue.
My favorite !
SMVA from Washington DC
I've been using Covergirl perfect blend eyeliner since I stole it from my moms makeup bag when I was 12 in 2004. I've tried other eyeliners, different brands and different types and I always come back to this one. It is amazing, especially for the price. I keep one in my bathroom and one in my purse. Goes on smooth with a light touch and easy to blend and smudge for different looks.
Horrible crayon stick.
notadumbblonde from Dallas, Tx
I am more displeased with this product than I have ever been with a beauty product in the entire 50 years I have been wearing makeup. It wont leave color on my skin. I have used the crayon sharpener, broken off chunks to get to "new lead", scrubbed the sides of the freshly sharpened tip..and NOTHING will allow the crayon to smoothly OR roughly transfer the color to my skin.
I Miss Mink!
TinaMS from Tampa Fl
I have been using Covergirl since Jr High. That's 40 plus years. I love their blushes and eyeliners the most and use them daily. Literally cried out whenI found out just recently they discontinued Mink in the Perfect Blend line. I don't want to find another brand but nothing else is working for my needs.
