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!!!!

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: 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.

It's not the worst eyeliner in the world, but I've definitely used better ones for the same price. The tip is fine and there's no problem with the application. I'm glad that it has a brush tip and not a felt one.
My biggest problems with this liner is that it's shiny when it dries down (which is something i really hate with liquid liners) and adding any eyeshadow on top of it doesn't help at all. If you try to brush the shadow on instead of dabbing it, the liner will flake off.

Review for: Black more...
I purchased this black eyeliner to give it a try and test something new. This liquid eyeliner was okay but nothing special. May the fact that I prefer a study tip because it is easier for me to use to make that perfect winged eyeliner makes me give this Expert Liquid eyeliner only 3 stars. I found it difficult to use to create a perfect eyeliner, so I ended up giving it away to my sister which she actually liked and used. Super cheap. Give it a try maybe you will like it.

Review for: Black more...
I don't typically wear eyeliner so I wanted to buy the cheapest product on the market for the very few times I do. I honestly was so impressed with the quality of this product especially for the price. 

The eyeliner goes on super smooth and lasts pretty much all day for me as long as I don't mess with it. This is understandable since it is not a waterproof eyeliner. So, if you're looking for something waterproof, this is not the product for you. 

The brush is super soft making the product super manageable. I had troubles adjusting to it at first but I found that wiping some of the extra product off the brush before applying it will give a more precise look without getting too much product on your eyelids. 

Overall, it works super well. I would definitely recommend this product especially if you are new to liquid eyeliner or want to try it out. You'll absolutely get your money's worth out of it.

Review for: Charcoal more...
I really wanted to love this eyeliner, but I couldn’t do it. First off, it the applicator makes it nearly impossible to put on, as it’s like a brush and the bristles go all funky when you’re trying to apply it and you can’t get a straight line with it. Secondly, it goes on and dries more of a shiny grey than a black like I was looking for. And to top it off, it transfers very easily (& fast) as it is not water proof. Don’t waste your money.

I absolutely love this liquid liner. It lasts forever. The color is a true black which is hard to find in a liquid liner. The brush tip is so small and precise which makes it very easy to apply neatly. For $3 this Product is amazing. This eyeliner is not waterproof, but they may make a waterproof version that I haven't tried.

I'm completely obsessed with Elf expert liquid eyeliner! I tried this randomly over the summer and it's now the main liquid eyeliner I use. I was doing some searching on a good waterproof mascara and this is one of the ones that popped up. Even though it doesn't say waterproof I figured I'd give it a try. I wore it to the beach and wasn't disappointed! This is my everyday eyeliner! It's so cheap and affordable and can be found at most drugstores. I always get mine at Walmart.
