  • "It's an amazing eyeliner! It has a nice, creamy consistency when I apply it to my lids, and the carbon black color brings out the brown in my eyes and gives my eyes a dramatic look! Also good for the tightline, especially if you have black lashes because it makes your lashes look fuller. It really is definitely a go-to eyeliner for an every day look." in 37 reviews

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: Black Brown more...
This is a perfect eyeliner!!! I have it in "black/brown" and I use it everyday. What I really love is that it is self advancing so I don't have to sharpen every time I want to apply. It also has a smudger on the opposite end which helps keep your fingers from getting messy. Hidden beneath the smudger is built-in sharpener so when the end of the liner becomes dull, I can create a new point. It also boasts that it lasts 16 hours and I think it really does. It doesn't budge until I remove my makeup! This being said, the product formula is surprisingly creamy and literally glides on. Most long-lasting liners seem to be very dry and pull as my eyelids upon application. The only problem with this product is that it occasionally is hard to find. Fortunately I know which drugstores stock  it so I can always hit them up. It\'s worth searching for! I would definitely recommend this product.

I have two offices in two different states and I don’t carry a full bag of makeup around in my purse. I needed some go to items in each place for touch ups and in case I have to attend an event or an after work social activity.

I wanted to have highlighter, brushes, eyeliner, mascara and a powder in each place. It gets expensive trying to have multiple makeup bags so I decided to grab a few drugstore items to try.

When I’m wearing glasses or when my eyes are really tired looking, I use white or cream colored eyeliner on my water line to get the wide awake look.

This did the trick!! It looks great and has staying power.

Review for: Slate more...
Very black and the pigment is great. Keep in mind that I have only used this on my waterline. It is a great product and the smudges works great if you want a softer line. But it only lasts in the waterline for a few hours at most and if you get too close to your inner or outer corner, it might collect and bunch up in it.

This is an absolutely great eyeliner. I picked this up at Target for an affordable price. This eyeliner applies very smooth and I love the smudger and built in sharpener. It’s wear is incredibly long lasting and I use this product almost everyday.

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.

NO JOKE...This is the only eyeliner I will use! It doesn't irritate my eye and it lasts forever! Even when I'm at the pool it doesn't melt off my face or get everywhere when my eyes get a splash! It is a great price compared to department stores as well!

Great eyeliner. No need to sharpen just twist for more, I can’t stand the pencils. The color is what it says it is. I use the black which is nice and dark. It’s easy to apply and lasts long. It’s easy to make a nice thin line or a dramatic bold look!

Review for: Black more...
I use eyeliner in my everyday makeup look. The black eyeliner applied to my waterline brings out the green in my hazel eyes. I’m always looking for the next best thing as far as eyeliners. I picked this up at CVS for about $7.00. I wish the pigment was a bit darker and it applied to my waterline more easily. I usually look for eyeliners that have a gel like formula so they usually just glide on and have great pigment. All around it’s a good long lasting eyeliner but not the best I’ve tried.

I used to use this way back in the day. From what I remember it was pretty good. I bought it a lot it high school. It’s fairly long lasting. The packaging is a little flimsy though. If you’re on a budget and want something that applies good, this is the way to go.

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. 😀
