essence | 5-Pack Black Longlasting Eyeliner Pencil | Water-Resistant & Applies Smoothly & Evenly | Retractable | Vegan & Paraben Free | Cruelty Free - REVIEW

  • These were sent to me as a substitute for what I did order and I'm so please.I don't like having to sharpen the wooden ones and these are retractable.The product stays on all day and does not smear.It's perfect as far as performance and value is excellent.
  • Made in Germany, this liner makes a deep, dark black line that can be smudged (blended) if I work quickly.I normally line both eyes and then smudge the lines to soften the look but with this pencil that doesn't work because it sets up too quickly.To smudge the line I need to do it immediately after application to each eye.The liner was soft and didn't pull or tug my eyelid.One swipe and it was on perfectly.I found the liner lasted through the day so it was no surprise when it needed a little extra effort to remove at night.It came right off with mascara remover but didn't budge when I used my gentle face wash.The automatic pencil advances the liner nicely.I really prefer a liner that I don't have to use a pencil sharpener to use - somehow I never get a smooth point that doesn't break.This automatic pencil eliminates the need for a sharpener.All in all, a very good liner that is comparable to others I have bought that cost much more.I'd buy this again - but with 5 liners in the package I won't be needing a new one for quite a while.
  • This is my go-to eyeliner! Doesn’t smudge on me and is great for a variety of eyeliner looks! I have hyper sensitive eyes, and this is the only eyeliner I can tightline with. Super affordable too!
  • I use this liner in the waterline and it stays put for hours, unlike the online/social media pricier brand that claims to be waterproof and does not stay put. This is my second multi-pack order and I will keep ordering as long as this is available.
  • I purchased this eyeliner a while back and I am obsessed. This is the only crayon eyeliner I use anymore. It is incredibly dark where some eyeliners are not dark at all (even though it says "black"). This truly is black eyeliner. It's easy to apply, but it goes on really thick, which is fine by me because I like a really thick dark eye look. It is very much long wear, but it will smudge easily when you put it on. I hope this company never discontinues this eyeliner (like you did the metallic lip stain... which I just loved also!). I like this companies products.
  • It goes on very smooth it doesn't last all day but for the price it's just as good as the high end eyeliners.
