Birchbox Breakdown

Striving for that classic swoop of black eyeliner, we’ve struggled through more than our share of smudgy pencils, finicky liquids, and unwieldy gels. (And don’t even get us started on the times we’ve swiped on a perfect line—only to realize there’s a gap of bare skin separating it from our lashes.) Enter this eye-opening gel pen from Benefit: The angled tip makes the liner a breeze to control, and it nudges lashes aside to cozy up to the lashline. No more streaks, smudges, or we-give-up bare lids for us: Now we can easily sweep on a smooth, lash-hugging line every time.

How it Works

The pen’s innovative AccuFlex™ tip is both angled and flexible, to glide liner along the lid in a simple, single, tug-free swipe. A wide guard below the tip gently shifts lashes out of the way, making it easy to get right against the lashline for an extra wide-eyed look. And once you’ve drawn on your liner, no need to worry about touchups: It quickly dries to a matte finish, and is smudgeproof, waterproof, and utterly unbudgeable.

How to Use

On the first use, twist the base 8-10 times until gel emerges from the pen tip. Each later use, click base once to fill tip with gel. Slowly sweep pen tip along lashline.

Enjoyable

First the pros: The staying power is great and the color pay off is fantastic. The cons however is it's a pain in the butt to get off. I had to scrub over and over again in order to get it off. I used makeup remover, cleansing water, oils, and it would barely come off. It began to irritate my eyes, due to all the scrubbing I had to do in order to remove it. I love the lasting power, hate the removing process. Also, I feel like I can't get a super precise line with this. It kind of skips when applying, because the product gets on the sides of the applicator and can mess up your line. I love the idea of eliminating the use of a separate brush and that it's so pigmented, but I wish it were more precise and easier to remove.

Easiest liner EVER!

This gel liner is a dream! I do not have a steady hand and have never been able to do a cat eye—until trying this product! Benefit has made it so super easy to get that perfect line and shape every time!

Easiest Liner Ever!

I won this as part of a Birchbox giveaway and it's the easiest liner I've ever used! It's so different from anything I've ever tried before… whoever thought to put gel in a pencil casing was a genius. My one complaint is that it doesn't come off easily. I had to really scrub to get the product off my lids. I guess it will be good for my summer vacations though!

I've waited many weeks for this eyeliner to come out and I was very impressed. Highly recommend since it is very easy to use and has a big impact.

Awful, Pasty Consistency

I love Benefit cosmetics, so my hopes were high for this liner but alas its consistency was dry and pasty and crumbly, not the smooth khol like texture I sought. Awful!

Hate this stuff
Purchased

It never makes a solid line it is always bad. It makes a mess and is too hard to get off of my lashes.

Dries up quickly

I was so excited for this product, and the first time I used it, I was really impressed. I got flawless cat eyes with very little effort and it stayed on great. It was annoying to get it off (you have to use an oil based remover, which I HATE), but I was still sold on the product.

I don't wear heavy eyeliner every day, and I had surgery and was wearing no make up, so my Benefit liner sat untouched for about 10 days. I went to use it again and found it to be dried out. I tried pushing up more liner and then wiping the tip, but the liner was just not the same. It went on unevenly and didn't work well AT ALL. I had to completely take it off.

Maybe this product would be great if you used it daily, thus not giving it time to dry up, but it certainly did not work for me. I was so disappointed that I returned it.

Great Liner!
Purchased

I really like this eyeliner. It took a little bit to get a hang of it because like others have mentioned it does skip a little bit. Once you get the hang of it it's an awesome liner with great color. It is definitely stubborn to get off but I found if you hold a cotton pad with remover on your eye for a few seconds and then swipe it comes off easier. I will definitely continue to use this liner!

Pretty cool product

Great concept, makes it easy to use. The liner stays in place all day so you don't have to worry about smudging.
