I bought this eyeliner because one of my favorite bloggers, Ankita , mentioned using it in one of her looks. The lady knows her black liner, so I figured I would give it a shot.
The packaging is not flimsy or delicate (that is the case with many automatic pencils) and I had no problems with twisting it up or down. Thus far, the twist mechanism still works well and it hasn’t gotten stuck or refused to move the way I want it to. I have been using this product for two months.
The color is a soft matte black. I chose Ebony because I wanted the darkest black available. Sadly, this is the darkest it gets. It’s color is similar to Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eyeliner in Zero. If you’re a fan of kajals and deep blacks, Ebony is not going to cut it.
I experienced good application with this. It glides on nicely and doesn’t tug or scratch. What disappointed me the most was the lack of staying power. I guess Ebony was in a rush to leave, because she didn’t stick around for more than 3 hours. I tried it on my upper lashline and got better results, but there was fading after 4 hours. On my lower lashline, it lasted for maybe 2-3 hours. I powdered under my eye (to set the concealer and reduce smudging). Still, the liner didn’t last. I just can’t recommend an eyeliner that doesn’t hold up after 2 hours. What’s the point? It’s completely gone on the lower lashline before lunchtime.
Pros: Packaging is decent, nice application.
Cons: Color is not jet black, poor staying power.
