Big disappointment. I have tried better and cheaper.
I had one of the first felt tip liners on the market from Maybelline, the Define-a-line in a dark pink pen, which came out along with the define-a-lash volume mascara. That liner was decent, at I had it for over 2 years, without it ever drying out. THIS liner is a whole other story. When i first got it, it was pigmented, precise and very easy to use. But that was only for the first week.
It dried out SOOOOO fast. Like none other I had experienced ever. At first it was only the tip, which couldn't hold pigment, but the more i used it (storing it laying flat) the more the tip dried out.
I will never buy this again, ever. I will just repurchase my Fourth(!) Jordana Fabuliner, which is way cheaper, and doesn't dry out within six months.
It's the perfect size to line half my eye which I always do it seriously takes me 2 seconds and there is no mess! Way better then the NYX skinny eye marker! But to tell you the truth many many eyeliners out there are just as good! It's really nothing special but I love it!
Similar to Maybelline's Line Stiletto, but Matte
I had been using Maybelline's Line Stiletto eyeliner for so many years that I decided to try this one for a change, wondering if it's the Line Stiletto's successor. Both are absolutely perfect for cat-eye looks—my everyday look—because of their tapered applicators. Like Line Stiletto, Master Precise is a liquid liner with a felt-tip applicator, but Master Precise's applicator is hair-thin, and the packaging is longer than Line Stiletto's packaging. The cap snaps onto the pen securely, versus the screw-on cap of Line Stiletto. It has the feel of a higher-end pen liner. It only comes in a single, black color and is equally, highly pigmented as Line Stiletto (which conversely is offered in various strengths of black). Both deliver a precise, bold and opaque black line upon the first stroke.
The most notable difference between the two liners is that Line Stiletto has a glossy, moisture-resistant finish that lasts all day, whereas Master Precise has a matte finish that I've found is more likely to smudge or fade throughout the day especially if exposed to moisture like sweat, oily eyelids, or humidity. I find that one advantage of Master Precise's matte and slightly smudging formula is that it is more forgiving than Line Stiletto in shaping the eyeliner with a cotton swab or brush to the desired shape, whereas Line Stiletto comes off in flakes once it's dried, and can look blotchy trying to fix.
Another issue I had with Master Precise is that its fine tip eventually begins to round-off to about the same shape as the tip of Line Stiletto's applicator. It's still sharp and buildable as need be, and again the line I draw is easy to clean-up or sharpen using brushes or cotton swabs, but it would be nicer and more true to its marketing that Master Precise maintains that 0.4mm-tip that practically no other drugstore eyeliner can boast except L'Oreal's Infallible Super-Slim.
The tip also becomes less soaked in product overtime, seemingly being trapped moreso in the base of the applicator. After a while, I had to apply this liner angled on its side to get product out of the applicator base and use the tip to shape what product I could get out of it. Line Stiletto has a similar problem as product starts to run out, but there is a ball inside the product that can be shaken to coat the applicator with the remaining product. There isn't such a thing in Master Precise's design.
Overall, I enjoyed my first trial of this product and ended up repurchasing another one because its application is so similar to Line Stiletto's, but with a significantly different finish and staying power. For staying power, I would stick to Line Stiletto, but for a matte black finish, Master Precise is perfect as long as moisture exposure is minimal.
- Jade I.
This is the best liquid eyeliner I've tried so far. I think liquid eyeliners are really hard to apply so this was perfect for me. I swatched it on my hand when I was in the store and it lasted about 2 - 3 days. I was really impressed so I bought it and I absolutely love it.
I have a habit of forgetting I have makeup on and rubbing my eye. But with this eyeliner I don't have to worry about the eyeliner fading or rubbing off. Also it is super easy to put on!
Master Precise Says It All!
This product is so easy to use and you definitely have a lot of control with the product, I'm really impressed with it's staying power even though it's not waterproof I've never had a problem with panda eyes in the rain with this on my top lashline. Due to the ultra-thing brush tip of this product it makes it extremely easy to get right in to the last lash line to which allows you to not need to apply mascara to hide the bits of skin that remain uncovered unlike many eyeliners on the market that need mascara to fill in the gaps.
Great and easy to use liquid eyeliner which is suitable for any look and any level of skill with make up. Such a great find, has become a staple in my rather small collection.
This is the penliner I've been waiting for; all the others I've used have been duds with their poor amount of product, tip bending or lack of precision. The product goes on super black and the line is really thin and precise. It's so easy to handle that I'd recommend it to any newbies to liquid eyeliner, or people who have a tendency to shake, like myself. I love this eyeliner, I really don't know how I'd lived without it for so long.
I absolutely LOVE this eyeliner. I use it all the time. It is really easy to use. It's like you CAN NOT go wrong using it. It's great for the professional and it's great for the beginner. An added bonus is that it is super affordable!
