Pros: affordable, easy to control applicator, great color, long lasting

I have never been a real big fan of liquid eyeliner. I have always found it to be messy or to take too long to dry, causing it to make a mess and sink into the crease of my eye. I have also had plenty of liquid eyeliners that got into my eye, causing the worst burning sensation ever. For these reasons, I have avoided purchasing liquid eyeliner. However, recently, I ran out of my usual gel eyeliner and my local Wal-Mart store was out of it, so I was left with choosing either a pencil eyeliner or a liquid eyeliner. They didn't have any pencil eyeliner that I liked in black, only teal and brown, so I wound up getting some gel liner, which I was sure I was going to hate. 

I was really not looking forward to trying this liquid eyeliner from Maybelline, because I expected it to be just like every other liquid eyeliner I had used in the past, but I was pleasantly surprised. This eyeliner comes with a rounded ball applicator, so you can apply it as thin or as thick as you want. The ball glides across your eyelid really nicely and is very precise and easy to use. I also really liked the consistency of this eyeliner. It is not too watery, but not too thick either. I wound up purchasing it in a shade called Black Lacquer and I am really happy with how black it actually is. 

I did not have any issues with this eyeliner flaking or getting messy. I avoided blinking and fully opening my eyes until it had dried, but it wasn't a big deal to me. It looked really nice when it was completely dry and it did not run into my eyes or burn when I got it on my waterline. I feel like I could use this product to line my lower lash line, but I prefer to just use it on my upper lash line and use pencil on the bottom. It works best for me that way. 

I would definitely purchase this liquid eyeliner again because it really exceeded my expectations and managed to change my mind about liquid eyeliner. It works well, is affordable and is something I highly recommend for those reasons. 

Cute packaging as well.

    If I could give this product a zero I would.  Disappointed doesnt begin to describe this letdown of an eyeliner that certainly doesnt live up to the hype.  The thin, watery formula needed several applications to draw any kind of decent line despite the dual-tipped brush, and the line faded and… Read more
