Rated 4.49 out of 5 stars
👁Benefit "They're Real" Xtreme Precision Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner ($24) is a sleek, glide-on ultra-pigmented liner that features a 0.1mm tapered brush tip for extreme precision. The design allows for ultra thin lines AND thick, Audrey Hepburn-esqe wings. Waterproof, smudge-proof and long lasting--this flake free, weightless, quick-set formula is quite buildable--creating crisp and sharp lines with every stroke. This liquid eyeliner took my very breath away. It has all the power of a traditional liquid eyeliner BUT the ease and convenience of a felt tip liner. I personally have such a hard time falling in love with felt tips because of their tendency to crush and bend over time. I have always wanted to see a brush-based precision tip like this one and I found it here.
The pigmentation is, out of this world, insane. You hardly need any elbow grease at all, just a simple stroke and you can easily glide a perfect wing every time. The thin, ultra sharp tip is easily controlled and maintained. You can build up the volume, for a more dramatic look or you can keep it simple. What I personally love is that it's thin enough to draw with--for those more creative and artsy. I can see this being a boon for graphic liner wearers. Did I mention this liner is BOLD? Because it truly is!! If you are looking for a more natural, basic liner...this is not the one. The reason I bring this up in review is because I read a few reviews prior to mine that claimed it was "too dramatic" or rating it 1 stars based on how much it "resembles Sharpie" but the name says it all. It never claimed to be natural, it's actually described as BOLD...So, rating it down based on what it's supposed to do? That seems harsh and unfair. Don't buy it if it's not for you, maybe? 🤷🏻♀️
10/10 would recommend and approve. Especially if you like extreme, bold and dramatic liner looks. I personally know how hard it is for me to find a good, deep black liner without being gray-casted or dull. It might be a tad bit expensive but it's definitely worth every penny just by application alone. Thank you Influenster & Benefit for allowing me this opportunity to test & try out this product.
I personally do NOT like to leave bad reviews on a product because I know everyone is different and just because I don't like or care for something doesn't mean it wouldn't work great for someone else. I was asked for my HONEST opinion in return for receiving this free item. Ok first I mist say that the packaging is very eye catching and. it's absolutely an attention grabber with the bright red and shiny silver with big bold black letters you cant miss it! The quality of the packaging of this is pretty simple and generic. A plastic tube in a cardboard box. Okay now for the product itself. I TRIED to apply to my top eyelid like I normally would. I BARELY put any pressure and SOOOOO much product came out on my eyelid and went EVERYWHERE!!! IT JUST BLED OUT SO BAD AND SO FAST I JUST WANTED IT TO BE OVER!!! After having to scrub my eye and now face I was convinced I would NEVER put myself through this again. It absolutely was NOT waterproof or long lasting or smudge proof. For the cost of this you can buy something else and get a WAYYYY better product for your money. This is by far one of the worst products I have ever tried. I would NOT recommend this product and I will never purchase this in the future. This eyeliner did not live up to any of the things it promised. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME.

I purchased thus and immediately loved it. The tip is awesome for winged liner. However, it only lasted about two weeks before it dried up! I love benefit brow products so I'm super bummed about this. I'm going back to my Clinique pretty easy liquid pen.

Bought this a month ago and it's already dried out. I have only used it a couple of times and it was great and smudge proof, but now it is dry and barely anything comes out anymore.
Candy from Cincinnati Ohio
Brush tip frays within a week of use and you wont be able to make a smooth line. Product itself dries up and crumbles. Not worth the money at all. Better off using wet and wild heartbreaker liner thats like 5 bucks and works exponentially better than this.
SMG from Florida
I would give zero stars if I could. Smudges and runs within the hour after applying. I even use an eyeshadow primer and setting spray to hold and it was just awful. So disappointed, will never purchase again.

Really wanted to like this but it would smudge really easily!!!

I have tried to reach out for a refund, with no luck. this product does not work. It was dry when I got it. Save your money.
Halo1133 from Detroit
I absolutely loved this eyeliner at first. I used it a total of 5 times, I started noticing it getting dry after the 4th use. Don't waste your money.

It stays on well if I use it with primer and urban decay face setting spray
c from DC
I like how pigmented and long lasting this eye liner is. However, after only about 15 uses, it was completely dried up and the tip was no longer precise.

swatched it on hand, and came right off. then tried it on eyes a bunch of times....most definitely not waterproof or long lasting. truly do not get the hype. bought it bc it was half off, and it's going right back.
Ino from Salt Lake, Utah
Love the way this eyeliner works, I got a perfect wing. But this liner isn't waterproof! I wore it for maybe 3 hours and when i looked in the mirror my wing was completely gone!! I used water to take the rest off and it came off with no struggle. I wish it stayed on better.
Paige from Houston
Not really waterproof, smudges and transfers very easily
Horrible from Maryland
It does not stay all day, is not waterproof only last few minutes and then it comes off
This liner is super dark and lasts well throughout the day. But after a couple times of using it, the brush tip has gotten super frayed at the end which makes it extremely hard to get a smooth line. I also found the product to be inconsistent and dry/flaky when coming out of the applicator after a few days. This is almost exactly the same as the wet and wild heartbreaker liner so if anything, i would purchase that one over this one. Still havent found another liner like the kvd tattoo liner! Wont be repurchasing.

The best eyeliner i have ever used! So easy to use and last so long. A nice matte finish

It gives extremely smooth lines, you could even draw with it if you wanted too. It wears pretty well throughout the day with no smudges. Remember to shake well before use or it won't glide

accidentally pruchased the wrong color in store (wanted black ended up getting brown) and i love brown eyeliners but this one was sooo sheer. i shook it for so long and let it sit upside down for a while and still nothing. and it also washed off so easily. would not pruchase again.

Goes on smooth, doesn't skip, very precise

I had it for about a month and it dried out. Color pay off is MID, better off with Better than Sex Eyeliner because it lasted me MONTHS!
Bb from North Carolina
I bought this after seeing Allure reviews. Big mistake it goes on pretty but that is about it. Eyeliner faded within two hours. Turned almost gray because of my eyeshadow after the two hour mark. Dried out almost completely with less than teo weeks. I do not wear makeup everyday. So for about 5 uses not worth it.

I like the idea of a liner being in a pen form and I like the precision tip brush. However, the brown shade, which I prefer, does not have enough viscosity to do the job. I returned the first one, thinking it was faulty,, but the replacement is the same. The black shade probably would work, but I was specifically looking for a brown liner.
spud from GA
Eyeliner goes on wonderfully at first. I'm 49 so I wanted to find one that was easy to apply and didn't drag across as with aging eyes these are hard to find. I bought this in the brown and was very excited to try it as I normally use black. I was very pleased with the application part as it lines perfectly without much effort. However, I was disappointed in the fact that its not very pigmented so once it dries you aren't able to see the product well. Also, after a couple of uses the product no longer applies easy and has somewhat dried up. As another review stated, I also shook it and left it upside down overnight and this didn't make any difference.

I love the precision of this eyeliner so much. It would be my favorite eyeliner if it didn't dry out so quickly. If it doesn't dry out quickly, then the packaging is prone to leaking here after awhile. The formula itself is amazing. Long lasting and super opaque.
Sincere from Ann Arbor
I was very disappointed when I used my saved up Ulta points to buy this eyeliner. I wear eyeliner every single day and this product met none of the standards it was supposed to meet. It was not waterproof, it smudged and wiped off very easily, the pigment was very hit or miss and only sometimes worked, the product did not dispense product correctly no matter how much i shook it. I do not recommend buying this product, but overall the brand is good.
