Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Consumer testers went crazy for this drugstore buy, saying, "I never had to touch it up" and "the eyeliner stayed on all day." There's even built-in sharpener and smudge tip.
You aren't likely to get a racoon-eye look with this eyeliner, as it does a good job resisting smears. Mechanical plus it has a built-in sharpener to give it a shar tip. Can be used to make a thin line, or smudged with a the built-in smudging tip for a softer look.
The best part about this eyeliner is that its smudge resistant and gives a smooth application. The texture is creamy soft and it glides easily on the eyes without tugging or dragging. Also, it stays for really long, so you can go for any long night parties without fear. This eyeliner comes with liner on one side and sharpener and smudger included on the other side. The liner can be used as an eye pencil to define the waterline. Its ultra thin pencil shape is cool and smart to carry.

What reviewers didn't like

Questionable if it lives up to the advertised 16-hour wear, but it lasts longer than most in its class. Drags a bit. Some reports of breakouts after application.
Will need a proper makeup remover as it does not come off easily.
