I think I really would have loved this product however, the sample size was too small. I really could only apply it to one eye before it was too short to glide. I did like the sharp point and the color, but I was disappointed in the lack of product. Although the package was nice there was ni purpose in it... why package a 1/2 of a sample in a full size tube?

I thought the color was brilliant, but I didnt like the way it came off through the day.
Also it left thin strings of eye liner in the creases of my eye.

I thought this would be a different color but its just too sparkly for my taste. I wish the description would have mentioned how glittery it is. Makes me feel like a 12 year old.

A Decent Eye Liner

I was very excited to try this eye liner when I got it in my Birchbox. I just knew it was goinf to be so pretty with it's little flecks of sparkles mixed in. And it was very pretty, and didn't smudge, as it said. However, the first time I wore I noticed that my eyes itched a little adn progressively got worse as the day wore on until I washed my face that night before bed. I didn't really make the connection until the second time I used it. Seems I have an allergy to this particular eye liner, wish is disappointing because it was really pretty.

... undecided ...

When it comes to makeup, the only products I know really well are eye-products. I've tried a lot of eyeliners and ... well here are the pros and cons.

I wear contacts so my eyes can be a little watery so a waterproof eyeliner is a must to avoid Raccoon eyes ...

Pros: Good color (could be darker still)
The subtle glitter is a fun detail
Seriously waterproof and doesn't smudge

Cons: Color could be more saturated
Goes on a little thick so not good for precision


THE BIGGEST CON OF ALL: For some reason, this waterproof formula has an ingredient in it that gets on my contact. It causes this weird film type thing that no amount of scrubbing or solution will take off and i end up having to throw the contacts out. I've tried doing makeup first, then contacts, contacts first, then makeup, being really careful when applying etc .... Everytime ... things will be fine then when my eyes get a little watery from contacts, it gets the film on them and I have blurred vision.

So ... great for those who are lucky enough to not need contact otherwise .... I'd be careful

Over-priced for little color pay off

I find that this eyeliner does not not have a huge color pay-off. I get better color pay-off with my maybelline eyeliner. I was hoping for a better product. Although a make-up artist I know tells me that a lot of makeup is made by the same factory and then just gets the company's name stamped on it. (Think how close MAC and NYX are with their eyeshadows...)

A little shimmer in a smudge stick

Overall this was a good product, but I like my browns to be on the darker side... this just did not go on that dark. Easy to apply, smudge, and later came off without a problem.

I was on the fence about it a the beginning, but I do like the stay time on it.

This didn't seem to go on very smooth, this seems to be a recurring problem for me with most waterproof eyeliners. The color was nice, seemed to stay on into the evening.

I thought this eye liner went on a little heavy. It was very soft so it was hard to get a thin line. If I bought the product I would use it to smudge for a smokey eye instead of an accent eye liner.
