Most Helpful Positive Review Great beginner eyeliner pen
This is the first eyeliner pen / non-pencil-eyeliner I've ever used, and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was! My pencil eyeliner ALWAYS smudges and winds up all over my eyes over the course of the day, so I was thrilled this eyeliner stayed put all day without budging (I applied at 5am and didn't take it off until 7pm that evening). It comes off easily too with an oil-based cleanser. I don't think this is like "THE BEST EYELINER PEN EVER", but it definitely made me feel more confident about using liquid eyeliner pens and I've already bought another pen with a little more intensity after feeling comfortable with this one. This one isn't a true jet black, and the edges aren't super opaque for me. I also found I have to store it with the lid at the bottom instead of storing it with the lid facing up, because otherwise the eyeliner drains out of the tip and doesn't go on very dark. 10/10 recommend this pen for a beginner looking to try their hand at liquid eyeliner (and I'm still amazed at the quality of the product for such a low price!) I'll be keeping this one on hand for my day-to-day wear at work.
Most Helpful Critical Review You have been warned
Do not waste your money on this piece of junk. The ink is not at all pigmented and does not have any staying power. It smudges so quickly and if your eyes are even a little watery (mine are because I wear contacts daily), then the ink will just completely disappear from your face... like magic. For drugstore prices, I would recommend instead NYX's Epic Ink Liner (has a super pointy brush tip) or Ulta's Classif Felt Tip Liner (has a similar felt tip like a tiny marker).

It is easy to apply and I love the dark brown shade!
Smudges and doesnt stay in place

This used to be my go to eyeliner but everytime i wore it, it would smudge without me even touching it. (my eyes are a bit hooded) My eyelids are a tad oily after a long day and this eyeliner does not hold up to any added moisture aside from the product itself. it isn't the most pigmented either

still ran with my watery eyes
This is seriously the worst eyeliner I have used.
Kristen E from OR
Worst eyeliner I have ever used. Takes several minutes of shaking & blotting (brand new & a couple times after), to get enough product out to finish my eyes. Once on, doesn't stay in place even half the day (or more than a couple minutes in summer heat).
Favorite liner ever

Elf products are good quality and economical.
I would not buy

Very hard to get out of the pen. And the color is very dull turns out more of a grayish color than black. Definitely not long wear. And I'm not a huge fan of the applicator not sharp/tiny enough for my liking.
nope nope nope
K from Springfield, IL
I bought it and tried to apply it not even five mins later and it wouldn't work at first and then when it finally started to work it came out gray, uneven and cheap. I looked in the mirror and it looked like I was wearing a light matte gray eyeliner
Mar from Deptford
I was recommended this by a friend. It smudges very easily and the black eyeliner isnt a crisp black. It comes off as grey and blotchy. I only wore it for a few hours and it smudged so bad
my go to eyeliner
Nessypoo from Oregon
I was hesitant to use an eyeliner ink pen because i dont like liquid liner but it was affordable....now this is my daily eyeliner....I recently tried a more expensive brand and was soooo upset i spent money on it.
Lily from Ohio
This product was overall terrible. The ink bled everywhere and was watery. There is no way to get a concise line without it bleeding into the fine lines of my skin. It also stains! After removal, it left a strange greenish tint. I bought the coffee shade hoping for a more natural line, but ended up disappointed. Not worth the buy.
Great for the price
Anuja from Allen, Texas
This eyeliner is really amazing! A great dupe for more high end liners. How ever, it dries really quickly. And it's also quite messy, for me the cap didn't stay on very well so it ruined my makeup bag :(
dried up quickly
bent from portland or
this eyeliner pen dried up very quickly and overall didn't work very well. i heard elf's slightly more expensive eyeliners are pretty good though, go for that instead
Laurissa kelly from Gilroy CA
It's extremely pigmented, but does smudge, so I use the wet n wild natural finish setting spray and it's set for the day, it's amazing for the price and the applicator makes it easy to use
I will not buy again

Can't Beat the price!

This is an eyeliner felt tip pen; how else would one use it if not for eyeliner.
Crease from Virginia
i went biking with my friends yesterday and fell into a ditch after falling off a rocky trail. i'm okay but after clashing into those trees and vines, my eyeliner stayed on. it was 90° out too lol. sweat and tears, the eyeliner lived. 11/10
Aprilcost from Denison, IA
So I bought this stuff on a friend's recommendation. Huge mistake, I put it on and instantly it burned and my eyes started to water. It ran in my eyes making the situation worse and all down my face ruining my makeup and staining my face. I have been wearing makeup for 25 years and have never seen anything like this.
Mo from CA
The ink is very inconsistent, sometimes it's super dark, other times it's super light grey / doesn't show up at all. I've bought eyeliners at the same price that work better than this one. Just don't get it unless you want to waste your money. :/
Amanda from St. Louis
Conflicting reviews however, I enjoy this! I am not good at makeup whatsoever but this offers simplicity when applying. My wings look great. I do agree it tends to smudge however, I'm constantly wearing a mask while working and wear glasses so that make help contribute.
it's an okay product
liliana from utah
it smudges really easy and is really liquidy. but also pretty pigmented It also has a pretty reasonable amount of product which is great but I wouldnt wear it if I were to go swimming, or if there was a change of rain.
apaige1212 from St. Louis
I don't think this is a bad eyeliner but it could be improved. I have bought several of these and sometimes they would come completely dry or more like grey than black. Usually after I shut the lid a few times the tip would be all messed up. I would have to slowly shut it to make sure it didn't mess up. But after several uses the tip would get messed up anyways. That made it very difficult to do a wing. If you don't do eyeliner everyday I think it would be fine
MandiInOkc from okc
I usually buy my eyeliner at Ulta but since it's closed I went and purchased this. Its ok and does last all day but my only complaint is that to much product comes out so it makes it very hard to do a wing
