One of the best

I was looking for a new inner rim liner and decided to give this one a try. This is honestly one of the best that I've ever used. The color is just right so it really opens up your eyes without drawing too much attention to itself and it actually stays on. I have sensitive eyes and they tend to water if there is any product on my water line, but this one doesn't irritate my eyes. Not to mention, it also has a pointed tip for very precise application, and a built in hidden sharpener in the pencil itself. Would highly recommend. This has been incorporated into my daily routine and will likely stay there for a while.

Love Love Love

This eye liner is incredible! It lasts all day. Unlike many other eyeliners that I have used for the waterline, this one does not budge. I also love to use it on my brow bone, my inner corner and my cupids bow as a natural looking highlight on those days I wear less makeup. I find that as a highlighter, it blends like a dream with my finger but not so well with the small smudge brush that is attached. Highly recommend to make your eyes pop!

I was always looking for a nude/light colour eyeliner to make my eyes pop and was reccommended this one - and have been using it every day since!It is great to hide a bit of fatigue, and unlike some other eyeliners it doesn't sting or irritate. I find that it is quite long lasting and doesn't smudge.

Made my eyes water

I got this to spruce up my every day makeup routine in an attempt to look more lively and awake. 1) I found this difficult to apply--it goes on the inner rim just fine, but sort of clumps along the lash lines. Also, I tried to use on the inner corners and it sort of went everywhere. 2) The look was a little too intense for me. I found myself wiping a lot of the initial application away to get a more natural look. 3) Made my eyes water like crazy. When I went to the bathroom halfway through the day my (waterproof) mascara was smudged over my lower lid because of how much my eyes were watering (this rarely is a problem for me). Maybe this will work great for other people but it just didn't work out for me, which is a bummer considering the price.

love it!

This is so cute and amazing. Like some other reviewers mentioned, it does not last all day, which is fine with me. It kinda melts into my lower waterline and lash line but doesn’t get smudgy. I think it looks great, and despite all the crazy drama going on with tarte, I freaking love this brand!
