Benefit They're Real! Push-Up Liner

Striving for that classic swoop of 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, which gives us the control we crave. The pen’s innovative AccuFlex™ tip is both angled and flexible, gliding liner along the lid in a 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. With colors this saturated and an applicator so foolproof, now we can easily trace the perfect line every time. And no need to worry about touchups: It quickly dries to a matte finish, and is smudgeproof, waterproof, and utterly unbudgeable. Take your pick of saturated colors, from classic black to chocolatey brown and rich jewel tones.

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!

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.

Meh
Purchased

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.

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.

Good, but not great

I was so excited to get this stuff as a prize with my monthly box, but it's probably not something I'll buy. It wasn't as smooth as I'd hoped it would be to put on, especially for the price, and it was a bit tricky to figure out at first despite being "foolproof".

once you figure it out...it's awesome

this is a great product....you just have to figure out the applicator first. Once you do that...the product is awesome....very pigmented....goes on smoothly and has great lasting power

AMAZIIIING

Very glad I won this product in a giveaway so I was able to try it out. I'm very new in the fancy makeup department and I found that this product was very easy to use! I got it perfect on the first try. It was easy to come off with a cheap makeup remover I have, so I had no problems there. The only bad thing I found was that it dries up kind of fast, so you have to be quick

Fun sample but probably won't purchase

I got a sample of this in brown and actually expected much more of a learning curve than there was. It applies evenly and stays forever. Stays so long that I have a harder time removing it than applying it. Not quite as foolproof as a pencil but fun for a bold look every once in a while. I usually wear grey eyeliner for a softer look than black and the brown was so dark I initially thought it might have been black. The other colors would be fun to try but it's pretty expensive for something I don't totally love
