Milani Black Liquif Eye Metallic Eyeliner Pencil Review, Swatch, & Photos

Rating: 7/10

Sold: Drugstores

Price: $7.99

Description: Extremely smooth eye pencil with the application and feel of a liquid liner that delivers true color payoff, in a metallic finish with a long-lasting wear

Review:

Pros
  • Great pigmentation – great matte black
  • Almost looks like a liquid – but has a more matte look to it
  • Goes on fairly well
  • Stays on waterline for a long time – at least a couple hours (for me at least – more than most)
 
Cons
  • Product breaks down and gets into my eye – this is why I can't wear it on my waterline, especially with contacts in
  • Hard to sharpen – can't get a good tip on it
  • Can almost seem a little sticky

L'Oreal Carbon Black Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Liner Review, Swatch, & Photos

Rating: 8/10

Sold: Drugstores

Price: $6.50

Description: Create a delicately thin or dramatically bold lines with precision

Review:

Pros
  • All-day wear – usually lasts until I use makeup remover
  • Fairly bold black line
  • Easy to apply with applicator – you can definitely choose if you want the line to be thick or thin
  • Compact packaging
  • No problems flaking
  • Doesn't take long to dry
  • Smudge-free once it's dry
 
Cons
  • Hard to explain, but sometimes I feel like the applicator smears the product off if you try to apply more, so you almost have to wait for it to dry before you add another coat or make the line thicker
