  • "This was my first pencil liner, I got the pen liner from ELF previously. I really enjoyed it - it went on very easy and wasn't too bad. It's kind of hard to sharpen, but it's not horrible - the only con really is that it fades really fast on your waterline." in 44 reviews
  • "I love this eyeliner because of it's price and it is very black oh! and it's only $1! It goes on very smoothly I do have to glide it on more than once but I don't mind for the price " in 33 reviews

I got a set of different colors for Christmas. While some look really nice (like the black one) other colors barely show on my skin or aren't as long lasting as others. The quality seems to vary. I think the darker colors are definitely better than the lighter ones.

For the price it's great. Just your typical eyeliner pencil. I don't have to many problems with smudging or anything. Could be more solid black. I mostly bought it for the included sharpener but was pleasantly surprised that the liner was decent

This is a great price and is awesome for beginners. It is black and fairly easy to use but it does smudge throughout the day and is not long lasting. Its nice that it comes with a sharpener and it will last in a collection for a while.

Nice eyeliner that brings a little brightening to the waterline while still providing a nice rich brown pigment. It has a built in sharpener in the cap. The formula is creamy and goes on smoothly, doesn’t pull on the skin or smudge.

The cap for this is ingenious with a built in sharpener. However, it does dry out the product a bit and makes it super hard to work with. I get no color payoff with this on my waterline. I would not buy again.

This is a very affordable eyeliner that is very smooth and creamy. It goes on very dark, but does skip a little , so you may have to go back and reapply is some spots. The eyeliner has a cap that includes a sharpener, which is very handy. The only problem is that this eyeliner smudges very easily in me. I do have oily skin, including eyelids, so you may have a different experience if you have normal to dry skin. Overall, I would say this is a good eyeliner for a beginner to try.

Great eyeliner and I love how the sharpener is attached! I use pencil eyeliner for under my eyes so i don’t need an expensive one for that. This product is at a great price and does the job well.

Easy to use and great color. The 9nly down fall to it is that it doesnt apply easily to the water line.. Was very say about that but looks perfectly for above the eyes.

Nice eyeliner for the price. Does tend to travel if worn without a primer and does fade during the day. Overall a nice basic eyeliner if you’re looking for a casual look. Not super intense or pigmented, but doesn’t flake off or irritate my eyes.
