This eyeliner withstood a accidental full blast of water to my face without smearing or bleeding! I am too embarrassed to admit how much money I've spent searching for The One (drugstore eyeliner) that wouldn't let me and my oily eyelids down. I work 12+hours and I can't afford bleeding eyeliner or losing my eye liner wing mid shift. This product applies MATTE black as advertised, and doesn't come off despite my already mentioned oily eyelids. The black pigmentation is there and stays there! It dries quickly upon application and comes off with simple soap and water. I previously used a milani eyeliner in the black packaging with gold top, but it was a pain to remove. I really love this eyeliner and will repurchase again and again. The only downside is the applicator, but this is a personal preference. I use a sonia kashuk no. 107 eyeliner brush to apply it and it works like a dream.

I purchased this eyeliner a few months ago from Walmart after seeing it was on sale in the color Midnight Matte which is the beautiful rich cobalt blue color. I absolutely love this eyeliner, especially when I want to add a pop of color to my eye looks. The formula is long lasting. It does not flake or separate although I do find that I have to apply a coat and then let it dry before applying another one. The only thing that I do not like is that sometimes it irritates my eyes. I do plan on repurchasing.

I have been searching for a good eyeliner that would help me do a wing and is matte. This is definitely one of my favorites and it does dry down as a matte. It does not smudge, flake or give a weird smear on your eyes. This does last even places where I travel that has humidity. I recommend if you never got your hands on this.

Review for: Black Matte more...
This is one of my go-to drugstore liquid liners. The formula is a true black, dries quickly with a matte finish, and lasts all day without flaking, running or transferring. Some small issues that I have are with application, the brush is a bit stiff for the formula which is a bit runny, and it can cause bumpy lines and dragging if you're not careful. I prefer a more flexible, skinny brush rather than a felt tip as I find they help the formula glide on and make it easier to get crisp lines and a sharper wing. But it's still very doable, and works great for what I need it for. I purchased mine at least a month ago, it has not dried up and still has plenty of product for me to use. Excellent quality for the price!

I am obsessed with this product. This is the best matte eyeliner I have ever tried. Was also my first liquid eyeliner and it's so easy to use. The felt to is quite fine but it allows for a thin or buildable line. Give it 20 seconds and it's super matte I've worn this to the list humid places and it stays on. I've also done the goofball thing and wipe at my eyes and it hadnt come off by accident! Also affordable!

This is the best eyeliner I have used so far. The applicator tip is great because it helps to make a sharp line and it's easy to fill in. The color is dark and you do not need to apply more than one layer. The eyeliner lasts all day. I really would not go out and look for another one because this one is perfect. It also comes off easily with makeup remover or in the shower with a light cleanser.

I have this like love hate relationship with this, I like that it’s matte and it stays on without creasing but it’s really hard to use, the pen is quite cheap or flimsy. I don’t think I would buy this again because I always have to run over it with another liner, I wish I could still get my nyc liquid liner, nothing compared

I am not great at liquid liner, but part of my problem has been struggling with difficult liners that don’t apply well. I really like this one because it is really easy to get a nice clean line, even if you struggle with applying liner in general. It is just liquify enough, thin, and dries Matte and very black.

This is my new favorite liquid eye liner! The Milani dtay put matte 17 hour liquid eyeliner stays on, without creasing, smudging or fading forever. Sweat, water, tears, rubbing, nothing ruins this eyeliner! The brush is firm enough to give to a solid straight line, while still being soft and comfortable to apply. It's super easy to apply, and get sharp precise lines. The eyeliner is matte, and super pigmented. I love love love love love the way this eyeliner looks. I highly recommend picking up this eyeliner, and testing it for yourself!

I like to test out all the 'waterproof' eyeliner there is out there on the drugstore. I have two questions... 1. Is it opaque? 2. Felt tip or Brush Tip? How do you like the control?
