Birchbox Breakdown

Thanks to this easy-to-use matte liquid liner, achieving a ’60s-inspired cat eye look is a breeze. The long handle gives you maximum control over each stroke, even if you lack the technique of a pro makeup artist. The best part? The dramatic noir shade dries quickly, ensuring smudge-free results.

How it Works

The thin felt tip glides over lids with laser-like precision, laying down a line of matte black color. The paraben-free formula won’t irritate sensitive eyes and also features an infusion of moisturizing glycerin. It’s designed to last from dawn to dusk without fading.

How to Use

Lightly trace a line as close as possible to your lash line. Keep the line thin or thicken it up to make your eyes really pop. Extend past the outer corners of your eyes for a retro winged effect.

I have never felt this way about an eyeliner. I love how matte and dark it is, perfect for my makeup style. Unlike most of the liners I've chosen in the past the tip is staying moist and going strong.

Good but will not buy again
Purchased

I tried this product because my regular eyeliner was sold out. It worked for the time I had to use it, but was not what I was used to. The brush was kind of hard to use and I feel like there wasn't a ton of product. It smudged kind of easily for me, but I have very watery eyes so I don't know if that had to do with it. On the plus side, it always applied BLACK, it wasn't faded by eye shadow getting on the brush as other products I've used. It dried very fast and doesn't feel wet or heavy when it dries. Also, the packaging was adorable, as it always is with theBalm's products.

Schwing black liquid eyeliner
Purchased

This eyeliner goes on great as long as your not expecting to go do anything. I went out wearing this one night and it went everywhere, I looked like a racoon.

No Thanks

I've been using the same type of product from a different brand for years. I wanted to see if I could find something similar for cheaper, and oh boy did I get what I paid for.

The application was messy and I had smudges all around my eyes by lunch time. Looks like I'll have to go back to my old product.

One of the best!
Purchased

I'm purchasing this liner for a second time. I've come back to it because it's so easy to apply and is long-lasting. It's not perfect; is do get a little smudge by the end of the day but it's by far the best I've tried yet!

LOVE the brush

I love the brush on the applicator, it is so skinny and slender giving you just the right swoop for that sexy cat eye.

i liked the way the product was packaged and how it looked, however, no matter what i did, by the end of the work day, i had black lines on my upper eyelid from blinking. if it wasnt for that i would buy again...

Loved it
Purchased

I got this a couple days ago, and I absolutely love it. It's one of those forgiving eyeliners you know when you accidentally make the line a little too thick it still looks good. Dries instantly and its matte which I like, I hate the shiny eyeliners they look bad.

I'm not a liquid eyeliner gal but this stuff is amazing and so easy to apply! I love that it dries to matte black.

Good, not great.
Purchased

I really like the control of the long handle this liner boasts, but the product is so wet that it makes it difficult to work with even with the control. It doesn't dry quickly which has lead to more than a few makeup disasters. However, when it does dry without incident? It leaves an incredible, smudge-free line. Makes a perfect wing.
