I've finally found my HG eyeliner! For years I've been rotating MAC Powerpoint in Engraved (great pigmentation, but smudged easily), MAC Technakohl in Graphblack (stayed put a bit better, but still smudged a bit on waterline), & Revlon Colorstay automatic liner in black (pretty much the exact same as Graphblack, but harder--it tugged on my eyelids). THEN I tried Urban Decay's 24/7 liner.. I loved the smooth application, but it still smudged on my waterline.

But while shopping at Ulta one day, I came across L'Oreal's newest eyeliner: a LIQUID eyeliner that is still a PENCIL. The concept intrigued me (plus the black & gold packaging was quite pretty) so I decided to give it a try. After using it for 2 weeks now, here's what I think:

PROS:

- Super smooth application (just as good - if not better - than Urban Decay's 24/7 texture)

- Very easy on sensitive eyelids & waterlines. No tugging/irritation of the skin at all!

- Very pigmented...lives up to it's name!

- It sets fairly quickly, but not too quickly - you can still easily smudge it out immediately after application if you want.

- Great for tightlining

- (And this is the #1 reason why I love it) It Stays on my waterline for a full day without smudging!

- And for only about $8, it's an amazing deal! Especially since L'Oreal has BOGO 50% off every so often.. makes it an even better deal then!

CONS:

- You have to sharpen it.

...and that's pretty much the only con!

At such a low pricepoint & easily found at places like Ulta, Target, Walgreens, CVS, etc.. it's definitely worth a try!! It's definitely HG status for me, & I'm glad my hunt for my HG eyeliner is over!
