smudging

not smudging

no smudging

- Ulta User

even for tight-lining the upper lash line (not in the waterline but at the base of the lashes right between the lash and waterline) it goes on smoothly and doesn't smudge and transfer

Does not last all day

I got this eye pencil because I was told that it was the best long lasting eyeliner for a lower price. The color is great and it is bold. I mainly wanted to use it for my waterline but I was disappointed when I looked in the mirror in the middle of the day and saw that it had smudged/disappeared. How is this waterproof if it runs and does not last? I guess you get what you pay for :(.

Pulled from in store

I am something of a drugstore pencil eyeliner connesiour. I have tried just about every one, and this is by far the best. It lasts all day. Glides on easily. Most importantly for me, because I have mature skin and live in a hot/ humid climate, it does not smudge to my lower lash line. Previously I had just accepted that I had to touch up the smudging on the inner and outer corners of my eyes, but not with this liner. It really is a fantastic product and I would pay triple the amount for it. I also noticed that my three local Ulta's have put this and a few other Essence products on clearance. I spoke to an employee and she said that they will no longer be carrying in store. It does look like they will continue to sell online, so just keep that in mind if it's a deal breaker for you.

I finally found THE ONE!

Like so many others, I've constantly been searching for an eyeliner that has it all; easy to apply, doesn't pull at lids when putting it on, blends easily, holds a point, doesn't smear throughout the day, doesn't run into the corner of the eyes, etc. I've tried all types at most price points, but this one stole the show. I bought it based upon the review by the incredible beauty guru, Tati Westbrook! As always with her reccomended products, I was not disappointed.I work in a bakery, which means I get up at 2am. My makeup (especially eyeliner) looked like it had melted off by the end of my shift, aka the beginning of the day for normal people. But this eyeliner glided on smoothly, which had me worried that it would smear as I've experienced with other products, but I was wrong; it blended easily and dried down quickly. After being initially impressed I gave it the ultimate test, I put it on my upper and lower water lines. It lasted ALL DAY without feeling dry and peeling, without smearing or collecting in my tear ducts, and it still looked rich in color. I literally threw away my other liners! I'm a new loyal fan of this eyeliner! « less

I can’t put on eyeliner for the life of me, but I love the way it looks so I’ve been using a small eyebrow brush and really dark brown eyeshadow to fake it. Does anyone have any ideas on something a little more permanent that will last the day, but that I can use quickly in the morning (like not liquid liner because I would have to practice and learn)?

This looks like liquid but is a pencil. It glides over the skin and is very easy to use.

Does anyone know a good and affordable black eyeliner that will stay in the waterline all day? I would be looking at a drugstore product. I have tried a ton of eyeliners including high end ones ( the urban decay one) and I can’t get any of them to stay in the water line more than an hour. I have tried translucent powder, setting it with eyeshadow, and drying the water line with a tissue before hand but it still won’t stay. Any product recommendations or tricks?

This eyeliner is really creamy and pigmented, and it lasts on the waterline longer than anything else I’ve tried.

I’ve been using for some time a small angled brush dipped in black eyeshadow as my eyeliner. I’d like to change my look up a little but don’t want to use liquid eyeliner. I’m not good at it and it makes a huge mess. My question for all of you very knowledgeable people is are there pencils out there that kinda look like liquid?

This one is very creamy and way more pigmented than any other pencil eyeliner I’ve tried. Plus it lasts forever, even on the waterline.

I’ve tried waterproof eyeliner on my waterline and it still seems to run. I have very oily skin. I’ve tried Smashbox, Marc Jacobs, Toofaced, YSL and even drugstore brands and nothing works. Any suggestions?

This lasts forever on my waterline, and at $2.99 I feel it’s definitely worth a try.

In search of good quality, pigmented black and brown pencil liners for the water line. Drug store price range is a must.

Any recommendations for an eyeliner that lasts and doesn’t smudge? For the waterline & not the eyelids. I tried to use the inglot one for my waterline and it doesn’t stay it goes everywhere! Everything I’ve tried just smudges and drags down my eyes within an hour!
