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.2014 Allure Best in Beauty Winner

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 was really excited to try this product based on how it was hyped up like it was the second coming of Christ, but I was less than dazzled. As a gal who rocks cat-eye liner 365 days a year I've tried many-a-product ranging from pencils to gels to liquid liners, and for my money the liquid liners are superior. I can see how this product would be good for a newbie who isn't as confident in their eye-lining abilities and needs this point-and-shoot liner to hold their hand, but I found it inhibited me from getting my trademark look.

LOVE IT!

I got this as part of an early release promotion and it is amazing. I am a cat-eye novice and this helps me nail it every time. For those who are having trouble getting it off: my neutrogena makeup remover wipes take it off really easily without irritating my eye.

Everything I hoped for and more

I love this liner. It makes for a perfect line and sharp cat eye. And it's definitely water proof. So much so that I had trouble getting it off with make-up remover.

Great product!

I am always looking for a new, quality, easy to use product, especially something like an eyeliner, that I have some difficulty mastering. I like this product very much.

Great for Cat-Eye!

I have never been able to do a cat eye (or really any top lid eyeliner for that matter) but this product makes it so easy. I especially love that the gel dries really quickly so I don't have to deal with smudging.

This is my favorite eyeliner. It is easy to use and stays on all day without smudging. I can do thick or thin lines very easily with the applicator.
