I LOVE THIS EYELINER! I was using just an eyeliner pencil and when I ran out I went looking for another pencil. I came across this eyeliner and thought I would give it a shot. I can immediately tell the difference between the pencil and this eyeliner. I feel like the liner pops a lot better and it goes on so smooth. As an extra bonus it has an eraser side for any whoops moments you have. I used the eraser side and to my surprise the eraser did take off my whoops and it didn’t leave behind a smudge mess. I would seriously recommend this to anyone that is looking for a good eyeliner.

Review for: Carbon Black more...
This eyeliner seems to be amazing so far. It was a pretty good price at Walmart. I love how it's sort of a mechanical eyeliner pencil because I never have to sharpen it. The smudger at the end works well, although when you try to take the cap off it, the whole smudger gets disconnected from the pencil tube and you have to put it back in. Other then that, the color is great, it works well for a smokey under eye effect, seems to work pretty well on the waterline and it probably would work well for a cats eye, although I don't know because I mostly just use it for waterline. Overall I recommend and will rebuy.

I just purchased this loreal infallible never fail mechanical eyeliner in carbon black. I really love how dark it is and how easy it was putting it on. It went on really smooth and nice. Looked perfect with my eyeshadow.

I LOVE THIS EYELINER!!!! The twist up cartridge is great because I always ruin my eye pencils by sharpening them. The smudger on the other end of the cartridge is perfect as well for when you don’t have the cleanest lines. All you have to do is use the smudger to clean your lines up and it looks perfect! I actually switched from using an urban decay pencil to using this one and I will not go back!

Color payoff is really good- really helps you get a lot of color on your eyes. Stays on well throughout the day, but smudges a little if you wear it all day or if you’re sweating

L'ORÉAL Infallible - 531 Brown Rich Creme Formula glides on with zero effort. Stays very clean looking and unsmudged hours later. It is smudge proof. Built in sharpener and smudger. Okay for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.

This has become my go to eyeliner! I have used all the big name brands and this one is either better or strongly competes with them. It is smooth, glides on easily, stay all day, and is rich in color. This is a fantastic product for the price point! I highly recommend it!

I'm an eyeliner fanatic and I love this one! I've been buying this for years in carbon. Smooth application and stays in place for hours. Easy to apply and I love the mechanical pencil type liners that don't require sharpening.

Best eyeliner ever!! I have used this for years and am completely committed. It never runs or gives me lines under my eyes like other liner does, and doesn't make creases on my eyelids. The twisting top is perfect because you never have to sharpen it and be afraid that small pieces of pencil are going to fall into your eyes. My favorite color is carbon black but I have also used the navy and I like that as well. There's also usually a sale to buy one get one half at places like Walgreens so definitely stock up so you have a new one when it runs out!!!

This eyeliner reminds me of the Covergirl eyeliner I use. It's black, glides on my lid and water line smoothly, and lasts for several hours. This does not, however, last for 16hrs. This also smudges and wears off. Depending on how you use it it may last longer, but it last just as long as the typical eyeliner when using it on the water line. I'll stick to my other brand that does the same thing but cheaper.

Hi, i had never tried to use this product but i am interested to try and buy this. But would like to ask if its a matte product ? Is it creasing your eyes whenever your sweating? And is it long lasting? Thank you. 😀

Does this eyeliner set quickly and stay on the waterline? I'm having a horrible time find a liner that won't bunch up in my inner corners. If not this one, is there any other you would recommend?
Hi, I've never tried this product and I was wondering if it actually stays on the waterline? I'm having some trouble finding eyeliners that don't smudge.
