Review for: Black more...
I absolutely love this liquid liner. This product dries down to a flat shade of black and is not shiny. I feel that I can get a nice precise line or thicker line with the applicator of this product. The price point for this is under 5$ and can be purchased at most drugstores such as Walmart, Walgreens, Or Target. There are different colors to select from, but I have only tried the black shade. I love that this product wears well through out the day and does not flake off. The one negative I will say about this product is that you need to allow time for it dry. If you don’t allow it to dry it has the potential to transfer. Overall for a drugstore liquid eyeliner I give this 4 stars and is a must have in your makeup bag!!!!

This is my holy-grail eyeliner. For $1-3 (depending where you buy) it is such a steal. The eyeliner comes with a fine brush tip that is easy to work with.

It applies nice and black, but does have a bit of shine to it. I find that if you do apply multiple layers, it builds opacity well. Throughout the day, I do find that it wears pretty well. Sometimes I find it fades just slightly and isn't as dark at the end of the day, but not that bad at all. 

I've been using this eyeliner pretty consistently as my go-to since 2015. I've tried more expensive liners but always go back to this one!

This is a great quality eyeliner for the price. e.l.f. items are usually hit or miss for me but this one was a hit. I used to use e.l.f.'s Intense Ink liner and had so many problems with it; the liner faded away or smudged less than an hour after applying, easily transferred onto my lids, and was just not dark enough. It applied more as a grey than as a black liner. However, the Expert Liquid Eyeliner is leagues better. It does have some transfer on the skin if it isn't given time to dry first, but I rarely have to reapply the liner once I've done it. It's a wonderful eyeliner choice for those on a budget.

So I got this product in a pinch when I really needed some liquid eyeliner and I will say it is not the worst thing I have ever used. I don't really love the formula its just a bit tacky or it could have been the one I got but it didn't go on super well. I like the tip being a brush and not a felt tip. I did like how pigmented it is and how long it seemed to last for me. I would get this product again but I wouldnt go out of my way for it.

Review for: Black more...
I tried this eyeliner when I first started wearing makeup, as I wanted something cheap to play and practice with. Like other ELF products, this eyeliner is extreme affordable ($3) and can be found at many drugstores. 
The formula of this liquid eyeliner is actually pretty good. It flows nicely, is pigmented, and long lasting. However, I did not like the brush of this liner, as I found it flimsy and hard to control. 
Overall though, I feel like this liner is decent. Although I would't choose this liner over other ones if I had a choice, it is great for if you are on a budget, or needed to pick a liner up quick.

Review for: Black, Midnight more...
I'm like in between about this product. I love it because it's easy to apply and I love how black the black is. This was my staple eyeliner in my makeup collection, and still is sometimes. The only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't dry fast and sometimes it would get on my eyelids when I would blink. It does give you a good wing though, I will say that. And it's pretty cheap like I think maybe three bucks? So that's also a plus! I didn't care for the midnight, I guess just not with my complexion and it got pretty clumpy really fast. But over all it's a good liner to have if you love a good wing.

Review for: Charcoal more...
I can't say that this is my favorite type of eyeliner, but I do use it, especially in a pinch or when I am out and don't have funds for the more expensive brands I usually prefer. It is definitely adequate and an affordable options. The applicator brush is really easy to use and you can apply a nice, straight and thin line. The only thing I don't really enjoy is the way that the line sometimes goes onto my lid as the day goes on. With that being said, I have very hooded eyes and other people may not deal with the same problem. I recommend this product for anyone on a budget who wants a decent quality product.

I honestly wasn't the biggest fan of this eyeliner. It is fairly cheap but there isn't very much in the actual container itself so it doesn't last very long. It's okay if you just need something quick or you ran out and you don't want to spend a lot of money. If I remember correctly it seemed kind of messy too. If it wasn't dry fully which takes a while it would smear and smudge and get everywhere

Review for: Midnight more...
This is one of my favorite eyeliners ever. To start off it is extremely affordable . Like no more then 3$ (DEPENDING WHERE ITS SOLD) second its a very pigmented liner and it extremely easy to apply. It has a beautiful application its never streaky. i really love how its a brush applicator because I feel like I have more control with it. But there is one thing that I am not in love with is I takes a good min to dry but its nothing major. but I totally recommend this to any one who loves a good liquid liner.

Is it waterproof? or does it stay on well if its not waterproof? I hate waterproof eyeliners but the ones I've tried come off so easily!

How easy is it to control the application on this liner? I have been wanting to try this but I'm not very experienced with liquid liner. Also how is the staying power on this one? I've actually had a couple liquids that don't last through the day. I use Stila liquid liners most often, how does this compare?
