Personally I thought this eyeliner was a waste of money. I don't rate it at all, I know this is a popular eyeliner(the reason I bought it) however I didn't find it was waterproof in the slightest! I've tried this product several times and just found so many different problems to be happening. First there was the transferring to the under eye occasionally, which no body wants do they. It also seemed that when I did a winged eyeliner, 2-3 hours later it would have managed to crumble off into nothing?? However the applicator was one of the biggest problems with this product, it is the hard, cheap applicator that is most common but it is blunt at the end with bits of fluffy fabric hanging off the end, and as you can imagine it made my winged liner take 10 times longer than usual, and even then it resulted in a streaky mess. Personally I wouldn't purchase again as there are way better eyeliners out there, some even cheaper than this.

I’ve been using this eyeliner for a good few years now, and it’s my go to! I would like to try other liners but i’m a creature of habit.
I love how matte and really black this eyeliner is, it helps create the perfect win and has a decent amount of coverage when applied. It’s not flaky, or easily smudged and last hours - sometimes all night!!

Going on my last holidays, for the first time ever I have decided to get some waterproof cosmetics and as I was positively surprised I wanted to share my experience.
Maybelline Eye Liner completed the makeup. It lasted whole day without being affected by sun, high temperatures or swimming in the sea. I wouldn’t however recommend to rub your face as I don’t think your makeup would survive that without leaving a smudges (;)).

This stuff is good I don't get why people say it crumbles onto their face after a certain amount of time I have never had a problem with it but then I guess everyone is different & this is so black as well which I love <3 5*

It was all good, easy application and great pigmentation, but after a few hours it started to crumble off and onto my face and into my eyes and caused sever irritation (I don't have sensitive skin). It became super uncomfortable and I just didn't enjoy it. Wouldn't recommend, there's plenty of drugstore eyeliners out there that are better than this and don't irritate the eyes.

This is a really lovely eyeliner that allows you to apply it on your eyes with precision. The product is long lasting which is incredible for its price. Easy to use and doesn't smudge off during the day. Highly recommend

This is one of the best eyeliners I've used. It has a lovely matte finished and doesn't look too cold or gothic on your eyes. It is very easy to apply and the brush has a very smooth edge. Would highly recommend.

My favourite liquid eyeliner. It's really easy to use, small and comfortable brush makes the application tidy and quick. The colour lasts all day, doesn't smudge easily, but you can blur it with a bit of eyeshadow for a less dramatic look or to hide imperfections. Very affordable too.

Best liquid eyeliner I have ever tried and so cheap too! It is so easy to put on, the brush is the perfect amount of flexible and its easy to control how much product is on the brush by wiping on the side. It is black as night with a nice matte finish. The best part though is that it doesn't budge all day. I rub my eyes a lot and it is always the last thing to smudge it's amazing!!

Im not sure if I got a bad one but I feel like this eyeliner smudges really easily so you may have to set it with some black eye shadow. It is a watery formula and it kinda makes my eyes irritated. On a good note, the brush is precise which is nice and it dries very quickly!

I didn't feel like this lived up to its expectations I did like the applicator/brush as it made it foolproof to make a perfect winged liner but I didn't like the formula of the liner itself. It felt way too watery and I felt the need to layer the product on a number of times to achieve a jet black colour. I had to apply a black shadow over the top

I originally only bought this to qualify for delivery but it's the best cosmetic purchase I've made. The brush is the perfect size to hold and apply eyeliner easily. My eyeliner tends to slide off easily however with this product it stays put all day. I honestly don't think I would have learned to put eyeliner on if it wasn't for this product!

This eyeliner was sent to me by GlamGeek and it has become my FAVOURITE! The brush is perfect size and thickness. It gives me the choice to create a thin line or a thick one which is very hard to find with other products. The brush makes the application super easy. A little watery but once u wipe the brush on the side it's fine. I could not recommend this enough... I LOVE IT!

This has to be my absolute favourite eyeliner, I think the brush is the perfect size and not too firm or soft. The formula is quite watery but all you have to do is wipe the brush on the side before you apply it. It dries fast and looks amazing and sharp af.

Just recently bought this product and I must say I absolutely love it. It dries fairly quickly and the tip is perfect for creating the winged or cat wye effect. Most importantly it dries MATTE. It stays in place for hours. Easily removed too. I give this product a thumbs up.
