- "I was a little skeptical at first, but for a $1 I couldn't pass it up. I love this eyeliner. It goes on smoothly and is a nice dark color (I use black). It can take a while for it to dry, depending on how thick you lay it on. I need to fan it before I move on or else it will smudge everywhere. I will continue to buy this as long as it is available.

This product takes a bit to get used to. You need to make sure you don't pick up too much product, and don't spill any from the open component on your vanity. I find that you can get a great line and wing from this, but it is NOT good for tight lining (meaning you would need another liner near your lash line to prevent a gap).
This product wears fairly well for daily use, but is not 'stay all day'. That being said, for the price it performs very well. For the price I also very much enjoy the applicator. The bristles are nice and stay together well after multiple uses.
All in all, this is a good liner for the price, but if you can spend even $10 or so to get a pen type applicator, I would recommend that for beginners.
The brush applicator gives the perfect flick and it small enough that if there are any mistakes, it is an easy clean. The product itself dries quickly and it opaque in color. The shape of the handle is comfortable and the eyeliner is so affordable that i don't know how anyone could pass it up.
My only complaint is that my eyes tend to water from allergies so i can smudge at times but it is so easily removable that all you need it a quick tissue in the restroom to be back on your A game. I love this eyeliner!
Though for $1, it really isn't too bad. It can fade pretty easily and you need to layer it up a bit, but it stays pretty much in place after it dries.
That applicator needs a lot of practice to perfect a wing, though!
I really like this liner, it does take some practice to get the hang of it but I am able to make a sharp wing. And after a few times of using this I noticed that when you go to wipe it off it becomes extremely glittery, but it doesn’t dry or go on glittery just straight black. So I did a little test, I put some liner on my hand and let it get completely dry, then I started to rub it, not too hard, with my finger and it sure did turn into something super glittery, not sure if anyone else has noticed this and I can’t find anything online about this little feature, but yea it does that. Here’s just a before and after.
The applicator isn't as sturdy as I would like, which makes it a little difficult to get a precise application. The formula is decently pigmented, but not as pitch black as I would like. The real downfall of this product is that the lasting power just isn't there. I have oily lids, and this liner began to fade and smudge after only about 3 hours.
If you have dry lids, this *may* work better for you, but for me, it's a pass.
