Most Helpful Positive Review great waterproof eyeliner for the price
I have oily skin and monolids so it is VERY difficult for me to find eyeliner that won't smudge by the end of the day. I heard good things about Milani eyeliners so I decided to give it a try. This is the best drugstore eyeliner that works best for me. Usually eyeliners will "crack" by the end of the day but this one didn't move at all. Comes off pretty easily with water even though it says its waterproof though. but just don't cry during the day and this will be perfect for you.
Most Helpful Critical Review Decent
The formula itself is awesome, it dries matte and doesn't crack or flake and is extremely pigmented, it's the applicator itself I dislike. It's super thick and long (the sponge tip) and there's so sharp Tip on it, it's like someone cut it off and it's a blunt end on it so you can't even do a winged liner with it

I've tried a lot of different liquid liners - this one is above average as it does last on oily eyelids, and lasts even longer with primer. It's a very matte black and the applicator "dispenses" just the right amount of product. However, I won't be repurchasing. It's definitely not 17 hour wear as it claims and the wing ends always end up wearing off after a few hours. The tip started to wear after just a few uses so the tip seems bent. It's definitely doable to do a good wing but it takes more effort than it should.
Save your money
Anne from Ludlow, MA
I really love liquid eyeliner and am always hunting for the perfect one. This is not it. The applicator is only good for very thick lines and the formula is definitely not a 17hour wear. It went super patchy very quickly, was definitely not the blackest black, and by the end of a few hours was worn off in so many spots and looked terrible. The saving grace was it was cheap. I would definitely not recommend this and I will not be purchasing again.

So I've tried this eyeliner a few times for different eye looks and every single time the eyeliner either gets a hook onto the skin of my eye or it basically makes little balls as I'm trying to flick to do a wing It destroys the entire look that I just made.
Hana from 6338 west christy dr
it draws on good but doesn't stay on, and its not waterproof even though it says it is
1 wipe and its completely gone
AK from Lawton, ok
Easy precision. Applies well to eyelid, and doesn't smudge.
This was recommended by a blogger I follow.

Highly recommended by a blogger I follow. Would work better on younger ladies , I'm 63 and wrinkled
One Of The Best Liquid Liners I've Found
NativeNewYorker from New York
This liner for me has been a God Send.. I have the Black and the Espresso Brown.
The tip is small and ultra sharp, and the formula dries quickly. The finish is rich and pigmented and dries matte. I am 57, and therefore the eyelid skin isn't as taunt as it used to be; in which case, most all liquid liners; as well as pencil liners, typically transfer and/or bleed.. This formula has stayed in place for over 8 hours for me. After 8 hours, I do get a bit of smudging in the tear duct area, but I've yet to find something else; either luxury or drugstore that lasts as long..
17 hours?? More like 1 hour.
Miss Kim from Alabama
I can't believe how bad this eyeliner is. reading 5 star reviews on it has me BAFFLED lol.
I'm new to liquid liner. Last week I put some on to test it out. looked fine at first. I lounged around the house, checked on my eyeliner less than 2 hours later and most of it had flaked off.
When I took it off, I didn't even need makeup remover, barely needed water. I just swiped my finger over it and it was mostly gone
my favorite liner now in brown . great
ruby from NJ
long lasting. Does not smear unless it rains
Samie from KC
This baby right here used to stay on through the whole night. Clubs and bars to leaning on the toilet all night. Or waking up somewhere with hair extensions falling out with one eyelash strip smashed BUT never the eyeliner.
I gave it 4 starts because this last batch I purchased does not seem like the same formula or something. I will get home from work and somedays it's faded or gone. This eyeliner was at one time the most WICKED thing I'd ever found. You could curl and curl your lashes and it would not smudge, wipe off, or pick up this eyeliner. Maybe I got a bad batch this time.
It lasts all day and doesn't fade
Stella from USA
This is THE eyeliner and it works so great for me and i have fairly watery eyes bc u know allergies and it doesn't smudge or anything.
Use a lot of setting spray?
Crochet Kitty from Pacific Northwest
Got the espresso color. Loved the look at first and it stayed put on my oily skin - no smudging. Walked around outside with some friends and it was sprinkling VERY lightly. Had my hood up, never touched my face.... Went to the restroom and was horrified to see the eyeliner had smeared all over my eyelids. Embarrassing.
Intense; but, flaked
Mature eyes from New Jersey
Easy to apply, intense color, sturdy felt tip
felt like it "sealed" when applied over another brand of eyeliner, lasted fine
when applied directly on eyelid, felt fine but some flaked off about 5-6 hours later
Packaging is good enough to prevent drying out. Concerned about winter months, might be fine I summer
Didn't stay put
Melanie from Los Angeles, CA
I tried this eyeliner as a replacement for the Milani Infinite Liquid Eyeliner (now that one IS 100% stay put) and this does not hold up. The applicator is smooth but the pigment was flaking and transferring onto my upper lid area. I had to carry qtips and retouch various times throughout the day. Wish it could've worked out on my oily eyelids.
Good for the price but not the best
alizasworld from Bay Area, California
I purchased this in search for a new staple drug store liner but my search still continues. The applicator isn't thin enough for precision and the product dried out in two months. The formula isn't completely water proof and dries a more greyish black matte than completely black. This product does the job but I don't think I'll be repurchasing.
ashes from nyc
I've been using this liner for a few years now. I really enjoy it. I have sensitive ::everything::, and I never had a problem with the original formula. I wish the brush were improved because the lines aren't as precise as they could be. It's a little time consuming to go over the areas that need to be filled for a sharp line; I usually have to dot in some areas. Otherwise, this liner is really pigmented (super black and bold) and lasts a long time on my semi-oily eyelids.
I tried the waterproof version and I'm not a fan of it. I never wore it under water, but I wore it in the summer when I sweat a lot, and I found this version flakes off before my sweat comes. It also irritates my eyes. Plus, I have to go over my lines a couple times which is time consuming, so I'm not getting the waterproof version again.
Jessie from New York
This is my holy grail eyeliner. It is matte and stays put - through workout, shower, beach day ANYTHING!
17 hours does work
Z from Las Vegas, NV
I use this everyday & it works unless you cry.
Barbara from Sebastian Florida
I have tried sooooo many eye liners from expensive to the cheap I just wanted an eye liner that would stay on and not smudge! Well this one is the best ! I can wear it all day and it lasts ! Worth a try and so affordable
Kai from NV
This liner looked promising but was a big let down. The felt tip is too big for starters. Dried very black but after a while looks faded and flaky. Rubs right off and came off so fast with just a bit of water. So yeah hard pass on this liner.
I would not use again
DownhomeLadyDi from TN
This is the worst liquid eyeliner applicator I have ever attempted to use. It is long, skinny, and spindly with a little knob on the end. It is almost impossible to use. It has increased my makeup application time by five minutes, trying to get a 'wing' on the end. It doesn't even apply a smooth line. It's supposed to be .09 hundredths of an ounce, but it hasn't lasted as long as any other liquid eyeliner I've used. It's already drying up. It's been a nightmare to use.. I've used liquid eyeliner my whole adult life....like about 35 years. I used another brand for years until they changed the formula and it stung my eyes to use it. I had high hopes for this one and it was a big disappointment.
Fabbi from San Francisco
Long lasting, super matte, very black, loved it!
Eliza from Miami. Florida
The fine tip applicator allows for precise and easy application. I like the matte finish. I would definitely purchase it again.
Repurchased many times
V account from Washington DC
This is the best liquid eyeliner I have every used (compared to Seph, MAC, etc.). It is long-lasting (despite not being waterproof), does not smudge on oily eyelids, and is very black. I think it is easy to apply, but I've worn eyeliner for many years. I have worn it for 10+ hours at parties/work and it stays looking good (I have been asked several times what I was using). It is matte, like the name says. The eyeliner comes off easily with makeup wipes/micellar water.
Stays put but not precise
alise from VA
This liner worked really well. It went on smooth and it was very matte and had great staying power. The color was very deep. My big issue is the brush is too wide. You cannot get a precise line at all. It is also more of a "knob" then a brush. I could not really use this to get a wing or cat-eye look.
