  • "I loveeee this! I used to use KVD tattoo liner as my go to but this has taken its place. The liquid liner has amazing pigmentation, it's so dark and fine. The other side is also black and doesn't smudge. I love this also because it's so convenient to have both in one " in 81 reviews
  • "Personally I love this product! I usually only use the gel/pencil side vs. the liquid because lately I have been going for a more natural look by just lining my water line;however both sides are incredible and last all day. This line of tarte is extremely pigmented which is great because that is what I look for in eyeliners and al of makeup products. I can't wait to try the rest of the line. Makeup bag essential!" in 24 reviews
  • "Tarte is one of my favorite makeup brands, they make some of the best quality products without being too pricey. This double take eyeliner is the perfect dual liner with both a pencil and a liquid liner that come on each end. It's such a great dual products, as with this one you can get that perfect cateye flick about as fast as you can line your waterline without having to grab another product. I like that this doesn't smudge like cheaper brands and comes with two caps to keep your product protected all at an affordable price. If you'd have to buy both a liquid and a pencil liner in a high end brand, you'd likely be spending around double the price of what this double take liner costs. I highly recommend this dual liner, it's both affordable and effective in achieving that sleek effortless super black line that you have struggled to get for so long, so what are you waiting for? Don't wait, Tarte double take eyeliner in black is calling your name!" in 23 reviews

This is the best eyeliner I have used to date before going to Mote Liner from Japan. I love the liquid liner tip. It's firm and I can get great sharp edges and the grip is easy to hold. I don't love the pencil/Kohl liner side though since it breaks easily, losing about 20 applications or so whenever it snaps. But if you're good with those, it gives you great usage from both sides so you can line the waterline too.

I AM OBSESSED!!! this eyeliner lasted me almost a year. That’s right people, a YEAR! I love the option of basically having two different types of eyeliner in one pencil. But also, the quality of these eyeliners is better than any others I’ve used. The felt tip of the liquid eyeliner is very easy to draw with tarte Tarteist™ Double Take Eyeliner as well.

This eyeliner is AMAZING!! I finally decided to make an investment in a worthwhile eyeliner after using cheaper products and I absolutely fell in love with this dual eyeliner. I consider myself to be somewhat comfortable with makeup and pencil/liquid application is flawless, in addition to lasting all night long. I would highly recommend this product!

One of the best eyeliners I’ve ever used. The liquid side stays better than any liquid eyeliner I’ve ever used. The pencil side is also amazing. I have both the brown and black and love both. Great for doing wings and everyday eyeliner

A little pricey at 24$ but I bought it in a Sephora’s favorites bundle so paid probably that much total for four mini items and the full sized double liner. I could never use the liquid liner pens could never get sharp points/crisp lines, this product seems to make it easy! I’ve had it for almost two months now, use it everyday and it still hasn’t dried out yet. I love it! Not really looking forward to paying full price for it but tarte always does little bundle deals, you can get it or another similar one and two minis for 15 bucks usually. I only used the other side once, it’s creamier than I’d like. My friend used it twice and kept breaking the tips off.

This eyeliner is the best solution between a pen and liquid. The liquid can only be use by ninjas highly trained in it's use. You can sharpen and sharpen a pencil and it's never sharp, plus, if your pencil is cheapo it doesn't always start well. These start smooth and always have a point: if you've never seen one, it's like a tiny 1mm wide tube of black lip balm. I find it to be reasonably water resistant, and it's easy to get a good, dark, fine line. I thought I was doomed to be an eyeliner klutz for the rest of my life, but this stuff makes me look good. Literally.

This eyeliner is the perfect combination of gel at one end and liquid at the other. This is better than other alternatives. I think this is perfect the way it is. I am a repeat customer for this product. It’s recommended.

Pencil liner: smooth, but doesn't quite "glide" on like I hoped. It takes a couple tries to get it the way you want.
Liquid liner: I love how easily it applies but it runs quite a bit, even without water.

Neither liner in this pencil lasts more than an hour or two. It stays on your face for sure, but doesn't hold up to how it was applied. Once you get raccoon eyes from this liner, you're stuck with them.
Paying $20 for an eyeliner, I was really hoping for something better.
Would not reccomend to a friend, would not buy again.

THIS IS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE EYELINER! I use this product whenever I want to do a dramatic wing or basic tight line. This product is super versatile since it’s double sided. I recommend this eyeliner to all of my friends when they are searching for the perfect eyeliner. I have been using this eyeliner for a year now and I don’t plan to switch any time soon. I highly recommend this eyeliner because it dries super quickly but the brush is a little more on the medium/thick side so it does make for a very good dramatic eyeliner.

I tried this eyeliner out as soon as it came in the mail and I'm so pleased with this purchase! It is so much more pigmented than most felt tip liners, and it is so smooth to apply. A little goes a long way;
I'm not the greatest at applying felt tip eyeliner, but this one was so smooth and glides on well without smudging.
The pencil side is super creamy and smooth, I love using it to smoke out my lower lash line.

Some "twist-up" eyeliners are too clumpy on my eyes, does this smooth on evenly?
