I really like this eyeliner because it goes on so smoothly. It's a really good value. It stays on all day if you were to wipe your eyes it won't come off on your hand and it won't smudge it goes a long way. I love it because you don't have to sharpen it you just twist and it comes up! I love it I would recommend this for people who don't like using pencils and people who don't like using liquid it's like in between (:

Its kinda good, the colors aren't that great, I mostly used the browns, I tried using it for my brows and it didn't really end like I wanted, the one thing i did like about it was the little sponge típ, so I would just end up using the tip to color in my brows or color a little circle in my hand and then tap the sponge in it.. it sorta worked.

I used this in high school and haven’t bought it since. It doesn’t last long because there isn’t much product. I don’t really like the twist up eyeliners in general. I had to reapply it all the time, it smudged all over my eye. It was really pigmented and smooth to put on, I’ll give it that. I wouldn’t recommend

The only positive thing I can say about this product is that it is very creamy and soft. It doesn't irritate the eyes and is easy to place on the upper lash line. Now, I personally have had really bad experience with this liner because it bleeds out ALL THE TIME. You have to re-apply every hour, and have to constantly check your eyes to clean up smudges. DO NOT try winging out your look with this liner, it won't work. The end always flatness out once you use it and you can't sharpen the pencil because its retractable in a plastic tubing.

Nice deep black pigment. BUT, it smears and I always end up looking like a raccoon at the end of the day. So not good for tight lining. Might be better for smudging on eyelid, but, with a good eyeshadow primer keeping it in place.

This is my favorite product from maybelline. I use this product almost every day. Great price. Very easy to use. Always helps me get a nice straight line and doesn’t come off like most of the other eyeliners that I have used before. I recommend to everyone. Color looks great and stays for long periods of time and isn’t that easy to smudge which is a great thing when looking for new eye liners. Would always recommend

My fav of all of the eye liners at a department store! Very pigmented. Goes on sooo smoothly and applies with little effort. Such a good value and it lasts soooo long! I literally maybe buy 2-3 tubes a year and it hardly needs touch ups! Love this it’s my go to eye liner for sure.

I like this liner because it comes with the smudger on the other end of the stick, which I use not only for this eyeliner but for others as well because it's a good size. The smudging tool is a little bit stiff for my tastes but it's easy to clean. I also think the liner goes on smooth and is an interesting color that I don't find often. I imagine you could also use it for eyebrows.

Goes on smooth but doesn’t stay in place. Smears with a blink and will get into your creases and run down your eye. The tip is round and kind of large, so a defined line is sometimes hard to get.

This is my go to eye liner. It applies very easily. I love this product but throughout the day I do notice that it tends to smudge. It’s very affordable and I would recommend if your on a budget.

Does this eyeliner go on as smoothly as a liquid liner or more clumpy like most pencils?
