I really really really wanted to like this liner. It was affordable and usually I'm more than very impressed with Loreal's pencil and other liquid eyeliners. But this product for me is just such a miss. I bought this in hopes that color would be blackest black and, much like the packaging suggested and that I would have a smooth application due to the felt tip pen. (which is really, an idea that I generally like on most liners) But I was turned off instantly when I opened it up and went to use it for the first time, (after shaking, thoroughly may I add) and residue was just dripping off of the tip, down the wand and on to my hand. I assumed, I hadn't shaken the product enough, however after shaking it again, it was still very verrrry runny. Application wise, again, I was disappointed. The color appeared as perhaps a charcoal greyish-brown (at best), nothing close to resembling the 'blackest black' I was expecting. I think perhaps the reason I'm so disappointed with this product is because I had such a high hopes for it, and I wanted it to work so badly. Overall, Loreal is an excellent, reliable, drugstore brand of cosmetics, however this product (FOR ME) was just very disappointing. I most likely will not be repurchasing, however I might give it go due to the fact that perhaps maybe I received a skunked product. But honestly, if I was in the market for a reliable liquid liner, I would just splurge the extra 10-15 bucks, and go to Ulta or Sephora to buy another liner that suits me better.

First off, let me start out by saying I am perpetually on a quest to find the perfect liquid eyeliner. I've honestly tried practically every brand imaginable under the sun, from Yves Saint Laurent, Make Up Forever, Too Faced to drug store brands like Maybelline, Loreal and Revlon. Urban Decay, really hit the nail on the head with this liner. At first, I was semi-skeptical, due to the fact that its a brush on liner, rather than a felt tipped pen. But trust me when I say, the product works beautifully. I was very impressed with the color-payoff, (I got this liner in Perversion which is very dark black), not only did it go on perfectly, but the color was just as dark and precise at the end of the day as it was within the first application. My favorite part of this liner however would have to be the fact that the product exuded no oiliness. This seems to be my major problems with most liquid liners, (the runniness that accompanies the color during application). With this liner, I was able to do my top lash line in a matter of seconds, with no random product discharge sliding down my lids and without the product immediately drying up as soon as i take it out of the tube. Overall, this is a GREAT liner, that I would defiantly recommend to others. My only worry with this product is going to be shelf life, (I only just bought it at Ulta about two nights ago, so we will see how it goes) I know most liquid liners dry up quickly and become unusable within a month or so. I'm just hoping the shelf life is as good as the product itself!
