Cynthia Rowley Beauty Liquid Eyeliner

Fun fact about fashion designer Cynthia Rowley: For years, whenever she wanted to wear bold eyeliner, she had to resort to using a Sharpie on her lids. Luckily, the style whiz has created an easier and far safer alternative: this smudgeproof liquid liner. The pen-style tip makes for ultraprecise application, whether you’'re stippling your bottom lash line or flicking to create the perfect cat eye. The resulting laser-like inky line is totally smudgeproof. And the signature gold motif will ensure that it never gets lost in your (seemingly bottomless) makeup bag.

ok this liner was advertised by the site on how wonderful it is. I'm not the best at liners so i experimented trying this product to get that perfect little wisp at the end, even using tape. Within a short time the tip dried up and i did the shake shake etc. Nothing got the ink back in the tip - i was extremely unsatisfied and will be returning this product. I have since purchased a different felt tip liner which functions as it should. Since i noticed other reviews saying the same thing I see its an ongoing problem and they should discontinue using or advertising to use this product until manufacture fixes problem.

Disappointed..
Purchased

I bought this eyeliner after looking at reviews and after using it several times was very disappointed. The felt tip dries out easily and it rarely ever will draw a full black line. I usually have to go over it about 4 times to get the color to show since it's very faint. Waste of money!

Hard to apply, disappointing.
Purchased

Was really excited when I opened the product because it looked like it had a nice tip and would give a thin line. Found it really hard to apply however because the color was weak and it wouldn't come out at all when i tried to go over it. When I apply to with a hard stoke on my hand it comes out fine, but my eyes are two sensitive to apply it the same way.

Smudge proof is a lie

The description of this eyeliner is false. I received the brown eyeliner as a free gift for signing up for annual subscription, and was excited to try a new eyeliner. Not only did the felt tip dry up after a few seconds of application, but I had brown eyeliner all over my brow bone by the end of the night.
I do not recommend!

I can't tell if I got a bad one?
Purchased

I'm reading the reviews here and some people say this liner goes on perfectly. I've been having difficulty. It seems to dry out while I'm applying it on THE SAME eye so it leaves little blank spaces, it's like a dotted line on my eye lid. I keep trying different things: shaking it, dotting it on a sheet of paper to try to get more product up into the tip, pressing harder on my eyelid, etc. It will not line my eyes properly, never mind the cat eye. I tried to fix it up a little with the beauty blender and that just plain rubbed it right off so I'm dubious about these people who are saying they're getting it to stay on all day. Maybe somebody swapped my liquid liner for a different kind and just disguised it? I've always loved everything Cynthia Rowley, and I was so disappointed by this liner. I'm almost wondering whether the one I received was defective and I should contact customer service about exchanging it. The blue color is so pretty. I want it to work like all those 5 star reviewers said it did.

poor color payoff

The result is very watery and sheer, and it's not a deep, dark black but more of a slate gray. Even with multiple passes, you never get a rich black out of it.

Watery, thin line
Purchased

I have tried tons of felt-tipped liquid liners. I did not like this one at all. It was easy to use, but even though I stored it upside down to prevent the tip from drying out, the product comes out thin and watery and does not achieve a very dark line. This is expensive and not worth the money.

Disappointing
Purchased

I was so excited about this liquid eyeliner purchase - I had received a few Cynthia Rowley samples and felt fairly sure that the quality of this item would be as good as the other products I had tried. I was able to use it for about a week and then it stopped working, as if it is empty. I have tried storing it upside down, but it is still not working. I am not a heavy eyeliner user, just a thin line across the lids 1 time per day. It really should work for longer than a week. The Eyeko liquid liner sample I received sometime ago has more left in it than I can get from this.

Will not purchase

Was not happy with product received. Great full size but could not get product to come out of tip very well and had to press hard, appeared to be dry or old. Will not be purchasing this product.
