staying power

longlasting

this is by far my favorite liner i love the matte look and so user friendly, i love the long wear

- Ulta User

what i love about this eyeliner is it stays on all day, from work, to gym, to night life you wont ever have a problem reapplying your matte eyeliner

- Ulta User

smudging

not smudging

i have been using this liner every day and i can say that it lasts all day long and doesn't smudge

- Walgreens User

never smudges or fades even after hours of sports

- Ulta User

precision

precise application

it is a rich, dark black, the brush tip offers precise control for sharp wings, and it is so long-lasting that it is frustrating to try to fix any mistakes when i apply it so make sure to let it dry completely before blinking

- Ulta User

love how it applies and how precise it is

- Ulta User

waterproof

waterproof

it works best with a good eye primer, like the nyx proof it waterproof eyeshadow primer

- Ulta User

although my favorite liquid eye liner is stila waterproof, it can get pretty expensive, and this product is my go-to when i'm short on cash

Where would I be without this?!

I could never try another eyeliner ever again. I'm so used to this eyeliner. It's super easy to apply and I feel like it's helped me fine-tune my precision skills lol. Ok honestly though, I have been let down from high-end liquid liners in the past until I came across this baby and I have not bought any other eyeliner since. I use this every single day so I always try to stock up when Ulta has NYX promotions. This will literally last you all day. I have bawled so hard with this eyeliner on and while my eyeshadow and mascara fled, this one was here for me. No smudging. No cracking. I HIGHLY recommend this liner.

Get stila All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeline Instead

First off: I'm a diehard stila Stay All Day Waterproof Eyeliner gal, but I'm willing to try other options that I lauded by others and I can get cheaper (because let's be honest, we're all trying to save a buck on our makeup).I bought this eyeliner for two reasons: It was on sale (50%!) and a YouTuber I watch recommended it as one of her favorite eyeliners (as a fellow monolid, I trusted ... and I was let down ... but no spoilers yet). For an eyeliner that costs almost as much as stila eyeliner when not on sale, I expected it to at least have a fighting chance. Not so. Within 2 hours of applying, when I looked in the mirror, it had smudged all over my inner and outer corners ... how embarrassing! This doesn't happen with the stila ... ever. Not to mention, the felt tip on it is super rigid and doesn't allow for as much flex to get the perfect flick. Maybe this would be better suited for someone that is new to the eyeliner game and doesn't have a steady hand, but I found it limiting in application. And the product didn't come out as nicely when applied. I had to reapply in some areas.Overall, very disappointing experience, and now I have two Eyeko eyeliners I won't be using again. #thumbsdown « less

HG status!

This is my favorite liquid liner of all time! I've gone through 5/6 tubes of this stuff and I absolutely swear by it. It is a thin textured (but not runny) liner that dries down in a matter of seconds to a totally matte finish. It is a true, deep black. This product is a very long lasting liner - it doesn't fade, flake, or smudge, and although isn't advertised as waterproof, is pretty waterproof. I've worn it for 16 hour days with only minimal flaking, noticeable only towards the very end of the day. The applicator is a dip-brush applicator with a tapered brush. The very end of the applicator is quite thin, so it is easy to achieve very fine lines, but since the brush tip is flexible, thick lines can be done with no trouble at all. Although this stuff is long lasting as heck, it is easily removed with micellair water or an oil-based remover. Love it love it love it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Hooded eye/monolid girl's favorite eyeliner!

I have oily eyelids, one of my eyes is hooded, and the other is a monolid. I live in the south, so it is very humid and it routinely exceeds 90 degrees in the summertime. I have tried about a dozen best-selling and top-rated eyeliners, and this is by far my favorite formula. It is a rich, dark black, the brush tip offers precise control for sharp wings, and it is so long-lasting that it is frustrating to try to fix any mistakes when I apply it so make sure to let it dry completely before blinking! The application may have a bit of a learning curve compared to felt tip, but the staying power is worth it! It's been budge and smudge-proof through many tears, naps, and sweaty days! I've owned it for several months now and since I don't wear makeup every day, I think it will last me much longer. I haven't noticed any change in the smell, texture, or performance yet. It works best with a good eye primer, like the nyx proof it waterproof eyeshadow primer! (Possibly partially responsible for this eyeliner's top-notch performance) « less

New Favorite!

This is such a great eyeliner; it never flakes off or smears, it literally lasts all day until I take it off. It's a bit difficult to remove but it's nothing a dab of good makeup remover can't solve. I really like how precise of a line it creates, it's easy to build on too for more dramatic looks. I love doing cat eyes and this eyeliner glides on so well that it makes it way easier for those of us with shaky hands lol. Long story short - if you want an eyeliner with lasting power, bold color, that's also easy to apply this is for you.
