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.

A rollercoaster

This liner is unpredictable! It tends to last long, but it can be either easy or extremely difficult to apply, depending on the quantity and texture of the gel that came out. Some days it's smooth and you get just the right amount, other days it comes out in big clumps, and you get chunks stuck to your lashes. On days like this, it's almost impossible to get a good line.
I could have given this liner 3 stars still... except that EVERY SINGLE time I open it, a big chunk has made its way to the top. There is no way of putting it back into the pen or using it, and it has to be discarded....every time you end up wasting a lot of liner.
I bought this at Ulta and should have returned it the next day.

It's my "go-to" wing liner!

I have purchased this product several times.
I only use it on my top lids for winged liner since it doesn't perform well to tight-line my eyes.
It creates a perfect wing and is so easy to use!
It doesn't run or create fall-out like so many other liners.
I will continue to purchase this again and again.

Meh

It's creamy but the applicator makes streaks so it isn't completely opaque also the line is thicker than what I would like

I had the same "solidified" problem others had mentioned. I did get a chance to try it at a local store and it still is a nope.

So disppointing
Sampled

I had been wanting to try this eyeliner for so long. It boasted about being the easiest eyeliner to apply, giving the perfect cat eye and the closest lashline application on the market. I was so excited when it came in my box! BUT, when I got the sample, the product would not come out. Not at all. I tried so many ways to get it out of the tube until finally I decided to warm it up my rolling it between my hands, but then when I tried applying it again, ALL the product in the whole tube came out at once and it was a huge mess. I still had hope for the product, so I bought it in a full size and ended up returning it. Huge waste of money.

I wish the application was smoother. I felt like it didn't just glide across the eye the way I wish it would.

Struggled

Struggled with the packaging and never really managed the coordination of squeezing and applying but the concept is on point

Have you be a pro to use

This isn't the easiest liner to use...but once you get the hang of it, its lovely.

You have to get the right amount of gel on the tip which is not made easy when you have to turn the bottom part which makes a clicking sound. If you have too much on the applicator it will clump up and look awful. As long as you have the right amount it is easy to apply. It stays on all day and does not smudge which is lovely. This liner is not for someone who is new to makeup. You should be a pro to use this product.

My favorite liner!
Purchased

I've always struggled to find a long-lasting liner that wouldn't smudge or fade. This product is definitely long lasting; I've never had a problem with it lasting through a hard and sweaty workday. I also love the application tip, which makes it easier to get a crisp and even line.

The biggest con with the product is in getting more out of the container. Twisting the knob at the bottom creates the pressure to push out more liner; however, the effects are not immediate, especially with a new tube. I've found that I have to squeeze the tip a little to speed up the process. If I overtwist while using the product, the next time I take it out a large amount of liner has been expelled and is wasted.

All in all, I'm still going to use this as my go-to liner. If the liner could be squeezed out with more consistency, I'd definitely give 5 stars.
