  • "I love this eyeliner! No extra sharpener needed, it's in the cap. It's similar to smashbox eyeliners but has better pigment payoff because it's a gel. It stays on too." in 4 reviews

Ugh. This is a hard review. I love this eye liner. I really do... But I run out so quickly. I'll start with the actual product though. 
This eyeliner is super black and pigmented. It's beautiful. It blends out very easily without smudging on its own. It's not a stiff liner, but it's also not overly creamy. It's the perfect in between. It also lasts forever on my eyes, even though it's not water proof.  I absolutely love this formula. 
I also like the packaging concept. The self sharpening is so nifty, and I feel like I can get a precise line almost every time. 
Now this is where my issues are. It feels like there's barely any product. It's a high end liner. High end price tag. There's 0.009 oz of product, which is slightly less than most liners. That's cool and all, but when the liner is self sharpening, it takes away a chunk of the product each time. So whatever is being sharpened out, I can't use, and it sharpens every time you open the cap. I ran out of this liner extremely quickly. As much as I love the formula, I probably won't be repurchasing because the price isn't worth having to buy a new liner more frequently than I normally do.

I really loved this one, the whole concept was pretty cool. I was really nervous to try the self sharpening lid, because normally when you tighten the lid you just miss your eyeliner. I think it was really genius, but it does take a good amount of the product out when it’s shaving it. I ran through this tube within two months, and that’s actually really quickly for me with eyeliner. It lasted but felt like forever, but when you were ready to take it off of the make up remover wipe, it’s easy to remove.

I have a love hate relationship with this eyeliner. It’s very black and glides on like a dream. It doesn’t budge from my lids. However it doesn’t stay put in the waterline, which it doesn’t claim to but if I’m going to spend the $$$ on a liner I want to be able to use it wherever I want my black liner. Of course I have super watery eyes so it may work out great for anyone with normal eyes. While I’ll keep using it, I don’t think I will repurchase it in the future.

The product itself is very nice. The only negative about this liner is the fact that it is supposedly “self-sharpening”. In reality, it is constantly breaking so you never have a sharp tip. Also, it is impossible to know if you are running out of product due to the self-sharpening feature. I would probably not repurchase for this issue alone.

I have been wearing eyeliner since I was probably 14 and to this day this eyeliner is the most smudge proof and reliant eyeliner I have ever used. I am so obsessed with this liner, but even better is the duo! The pencil eyeliner works wonders and stays on all night!

This is a really good eyeliner. It applies very smoothly & lasts for a lot of the day. However, it’s more on the pricy side & I do not think you get a lot of product for the price. My eyes always look great, so this is my go to on special occasions.

This is a good product but i don’t like how gard it is to take off. It’s long lasting, the packaging is great. I recommend this product for when doing a glamorous look. It’s a bit pricey though. You can easily get one at the drug store

I LOVE this eyeliner! It’s so pigmented and lasts all day and best of all it goes on sooo easily! I’ve used a LOT of different eyeliners but this is the best! Every other one I’ve tried has dried out super quickly and frays at the tip, but not this. It’s seriously incredible.

This eyeliner glides on smoothly and has a nice, dark pigment. It works really well for applying eyeliner on the water line. However, I would not reccomend it for tight-lining the upper lid because it does transfer to the water line.

Ok I honestly have a love/hate relationship with this liner...

Pros: self sharpening (not just ‘automatic’ like most) smooth formula, very pigmented

Cons: There is no way to make the liner come out (like if it breaks), pricey.
