I received this Perfect Point Plus liquid eyeliner in the shade Charcoal 205. I don't normally wear grey or charcoal colored eyeliner in general, regardless of the formula (liquid, gel, cream, powder, etc). However, I decided to indulge myself and give it a try. First, can I say that this eyeliner is so richly pigmented that the charcoal looks more like a soft black! As a black eyeliner gal (or I do 2 colors at once...black + whatever shade works with my eye look), that made my heart jump for joy. This eyeliner went on easier than most felt tipped liquid eyeliners tend to (*I am a huge fan of brush tipped eyeliners) and wore well all day without wearing away or flaking. Removal was easy, and there was zero irritation to my sensitive, contact lens wearer eyes. Results: I would definitely recommend this liquid eyeliner to anyone who likes felt tipped eyeliner applicators that dip into the little eyeliner well (versus the 1 piece pen style). I do use this style of liquid eyeliner about 50% of the time so I will definitely try additional shades in this line.
I bought this liner as a replacement for my NYX matte liner since that was discontinued, and while this isn't the worst liner I've used, it's certainly not the best. I wear fairly dramatic winged eyeliner every day and this does not work for that (I could see how it might work for people who only barely line their lid, but for anything more dramatic, this isn't it). The pigment itself is sheer (not quite grey, but it almost looks watered down and I have to apply at least two-three coats to get a solid black wing), and the rigid brush(?) applicator makes it incredibly difficult to apply. The applicator does work pretty well to get a sharp edge on your wing, but it makes it impossible to line your lash line, fill in a wing, or line your inner corner. I've been wearing winged liner every day for at least three years now, so I'd say I'm pretty skilled at getting that perfect wing, but the issue with this is that even if you nail the shape on your first try (which is HARD because of the issues with the applicator that I mentioned above), you have to go over it a couple of times to get it opaque. The product also takes a pretty long time to dry, so if you look up or blink weird before it's set it'll transfer onto your lid. It did stay on pretty well (once it dried it didn't smear or blur, but it did flake a tiny bit after a couple of hours) when I wore it out for a full day (about 8 hours, some of those outside in the summer sun/heat/humidity), but removed very easily with a makeup wipe.
Ultimately, I'd say if you wear very simple liner or are willing to leave it sheer/go over your wing a couple times, this is probably a pretty decent liner considering the price/how much product you get, as well as its staying power (minus the slightly flaking).

It drys to quickly and it is so durable to the skin. It doesn't take a lot of precision to put it on. It has a good pigment. The package is easy to take out of.

I like this eyeliner. It's easy to use and goes on smoothly. My only complaint is the color expresso is a black/brown color. I just want a true brown liquid eyeliner, not a dark brown.

I don't use eyeliner so much anymore because I changed my make up look but this definitely used to be one of my favorites. Long lasting and doesn't smear.

Very affordable eyeliner and lasts forever! It glides on your skin really smoothly and its very light weight. I highly recommend!

I am torn on this one. On initial application it is beautiful. It is smooth, easy to apply, and dried down matte. However, it doesnt wear well on me at all. It cracks and flakes and comes off throughout the day and this is without tearing up and/or rubbing my eyes. I don't know why it does this on me.
For short term wear, beautiful.
Not for all day wear.

I haven't worn eyeliner since college and pregnancy, so I purchased Covergirl Perfect Point Plus Liquid Eyeliner to play with. A liquid eyeliner eye has been my signature every day look for years. I really like this one! It's super easy to apply, juicy and lasts all day.

Not a big fan it's good for the lower lid line but for the wings I like the liquid or gel liner… I recommend for anyone doing the lower lids it lasted nice.

This is one of my favorite liners. I will definitely start by saying it is not waterproof AT ALL. I can basically wipe it right off with a wet q-tip. I like to use it because it is affordable and I love the dip and brush. It's more of a felt tip that you can dip to pick up more liquid. I find this is the easiest type of eyeliner for me to use (my hands shake terribly). If I mess up, I can easily fix it. Definitely not for everyone but I love how affordable it is and it works for me!

So hard to manage. When you put in on your eyelids, the tip is so thick that it gets all over your eyes. The tip flattens so it allows that to happen. Even when it does go on it leaks and gets everywhere. Will not be buying again.

Since "rediscovering", I have been back to this tried and true formula that has withstood test of time. Past years, other eyeliners have arrived, all from subscription beauty boxes. Somewhere along the way, I forgot about this one.
I try to store mostly in upright position, when possible, but a few minutes to settle does the same. Many liquid liners, IMO, that comes like a pen with comparable tip, won't provide same coverage, as you have no idea how much is left. If you store those in a drawer, it may take a bit for pigment to make it to the tip. CoverGirl's is good to go, within minutes, even if you have stored horizontally.
This one can then make thinnest pigmented line, allowing you to dip brush multiple times, and start where you prefer on your eyelids and build thicker outwards, like any other eyeliner, but at half the price!

Veteran liquid eyeliner user : the brush is perfect. Absolutely perfect.
I like doing cat eyes of various lengths and thicknesses and it's perfect. Great control.
BUT if you have watery eyes or tear up at all, your eyeliner is gone.
Alice from Chicago, IL
The pigment is so amazing. So strong. I love the subtle look therefore my eyeliner look is always small but a lot of people notice it and give me compliments. Hasn't smudged at all. I go to school and come back and it's still there. Use a cleansing balm to take it off and everything is easily taken away.

I have used this eyeliner for at least 17 years and I love it. It's still my go to eyeliner. It could be a darker black but I dont mind it.
Dion from Christiana, DE
Something in this product irritated my upper lash line. I didn't keep it on long and, even with that, my eyes ended up swollen and teary. I returned it.
