Benefit They're Real! Push-Up Liner

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.

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!

actual product great

i love this liner because it goes on fairly smoothly and stays on. however, it's frustrating in that each time i take the cap off a good bit of the gel has pushed through and so i have to wipe that off before then pushing more up to use. I feel like this is a pretty big waste of the product.

other than that it's great.

Great but hard to use
Sampled

I loved how well this eyeliner stayed on. Like seriously amazing. It was a hot humid day in Texas and it was perfect. However it is super hard to use. I ended up using a brush to get my line the way I like. It is also super annoying to get off.

Hard to get used to at first, but once you do, this stuff rocks! Just like the mascara, it stays on all day (actually it's really hard to get off) and looks great!

At first I loved this liner I thought it would solve all my problems when it came to getting the perfect wing but the actual product clumps A LOT

Made my eyes pop!

Brought out the color that someone made the comment "didn't realize your eyes are blue". Well, they really aren't... But this stuff brought out the storm!
