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. Enter this eye-opening gel pen from Benefit: The liner is a breeze to control and it nudges lashes aside to cozy up to the lashline, so we can easily sweep on a smooth, lash-hugging line every time.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. The formula quickly dries to a matte finish, and is smudgeproof, waterproof, and utterly unbridgeable.

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!

Dries out in the applicator

I tried this when it first came out. I LOVED the first application and was so excited because it made a beautiful cat-eye. Unfortunately, when I pulled it out to use it a second time, the product wouldn't come out of the tube. I had to work several chunks of dried product out of the tip, getting liner all over my hands and bathroom sink. I rinsed and wiped off the tip and used it again, but the results were not as consistent. I tried it a few more times, but the applicator got progressively worse, harder clumps and less effective lining. I ended up returning it. Cannot recommend this to anyone unless you are looking for nothing more than a mess.

It's just ok
Purchased

Okay at first I was addicted to this, but I noticed as the day goes on it starts to melt and leave black creases above my eyelid and sometimes smudges underneath the eyes well. I also don't like how when you crank it up a ton of the eyeliner comes out of the little hole and I end up having to wipe it off. It's wasteful. If they could get the formula down so it doesn't smear it would be an outstanding product because the color is rich and the rubber tip design makes for smooth lines.

Excellent

It really doesn't clump and it looks great on my very very sparse lashes. Great texture. Easy to apply. No sting when I inevitably get it in my eye. Highly recommended product.

Lot of hype, but hard to use
Purchased

There was a lot of hype about this product but it's quite chunky and hard to use. I prefer the stila liquid eyeliner - gives you a great effect and much simpler to use.

Absolutely THE BEST EYELINER --- EVER!
Purchased

I LOVE this eyeliner - It gives you a smooth definite line - and it stays where you put it - it does not melt or smear - it is worth every penny you will spend on this eyeliner! Love it!

Clumpy mess

Maybe mine was a dud. But this product was terrible for me. Ive tried it countless times and im very proficient with eyeliner so i figured i would love this! But unfortunately it was such a dry formula that when i tried applying it, it would just get chunky and clumpy. no matter what i did it was balling up and it was just a mess! I am shocked that this is marketed as an easy fix for eyeliner beginners. Im good at eyeliner and i HATE this eyeliner! I would go as far as to say its the worst ive ever tried. Super gimmicky.
