Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Push-up Eyeliner

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, 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 lash line for an extra wide-eyed look. With colors this saturated and an applicator so fool-proof, now we can easily trace the perfect line every time. And no need to worry about touch-ups: It's waterproof, utterly unbudgeable, and it quickly dries to a matte finish.Take your pick of shades, from classic black to chocolatey brown and rich jewel tones.

How do you use this?

This is the most challenging eyeliner I've ever tried to use. Still can't figure out how to "push up" the product, because I can't get a decent line or color. All design.

highly disappointed

was very excited to get this and one of my boxes because I love the brand, but sadly it seems that it was dried out or something. not sure if it was because it was a sample size or what. it was crumbly, hard to use and didn't work. sadly ended up tossing it.

Nope!

Sample was unusable...what did push up was dried out and clumpy.

So disappointed

I had been wanting to try this and could not believe the low rating. Well believe it! The tip is a soft rubber which makes it difficult to apply, I think. It does not glide on as easy as they show on the tutorial. It crumbles! So much of the product is wasted.

Not a fan
Sampled

I'm not sure if it was just the sample i received, but it was extremely difficult to push up, angle, and apply and expect good results. Ended up throwing sample away and haven't looked back. I am a huge fan of Urban Decays Perversion liquid liner.

Dried out

The first time I used it took forever to get it started, the second time it had dried out and I couldn't get anything.

Very disappointed.

Worst product ever

I soooooo love Benefit and their products but this was horrible. It is compressed powder and does not come out smooth when dragging along your lid. No clue where they get the "gel" from in their description. You have to click it up so much just to get a tiny amount out and then it doesn't even last half an eye. Going back to a brush type liquid or old fashioned pencil.

Hate this... wanted to love it, didn't
Purchased

supposed to be super easy but it's definitely not. When I twist it up, there is a delay to my clicks and too much product comes out at once. It separates some so sometimes the product is wet, sometimes hard and chunky. Patchy application. Thought I had a bad tube so when another came in a sample tried it again. Same problem. Prefer pencil, pen, and liquid liners and am comfortable applying all three. It was a waste of money.

Hate it, very Frustrating

I never did quite figure this liner out. It is literally the consistency of a waterproof mascara. To use, you must click click click and wind the product up and through the pen to the slanted tip. After several clicks, the sludge appears, and does not distribute unto the liner applicator. Also, from the first use, I thought maybe I got a bad batch. Not so. It does not glide on as advertised. Instead you have to touch the product with your fingers. Then milk the sludge to the applicator tip. Finally, very carefully, try to line your eyes. You will be stuck with clumps and then a finger covered in waterproof mascara type matter that is almost impossible to remove. This product is not a pleasant way to line your eyes. I tried everything because I wanted it to work as well as the "TR" mascara. I thought it was me. It is just a terribly impossible product. If it was not for the price I do not think I would have went to all of this trouble. Most certainly, this eyeliner should come with a video tutorial DVD for this price. And even then, I have no idea if it will make you look beautiful. Not worth the hassle I went through; that is for sure.
