Fantastic eyeliner, it is easy to apply and does not smudge at all after hours of wear.

This is the first eyeliner that lasts on my water line and doesn't irritate my eyes or my contacts. You do have to build the color a bit to get a super dark black, but I'm happy to do that since it won't bother my eyes!

I liked the creaminess of the eye pencil but you really have to be careful not to press too hard or the tip of the pencil will break. Mine broke 4 times while i tried to apply it today. I got this eye pencil in chocolate and i really liked it because it creates a very thin line and i don't have to sharpen it. The only issue is that it keeps breaking which is annoying! What i ended up doing was twisting it up until I got just enough to line one eye and pressed very lightly. I got great line though. So overall i recommend it but please dint press too hard.

This came to me very dry and tugged on my eyelids. Application was patchy. It was pretty much unusable. Bummer, since the size of the kohl is perfect.

I like the thinness of the product because that affords some control for drawing fine lines. However, the product is rather dry and difficult to apply without a lot of tugging at the eye. I haven't tried this on my rims, only on my lid. Even so, the product didn't glide on. On the plus side, it has great staying power and lasts all day.

PLEASE bring back the Emphaseyes Aqua gel eyeliner in black. It was so much better than this product. It glided on without tugging on your skin and damaging your eye area like this one does and it stayed all day -- through my marathon training, all day presentations in front of my clients and more. I am so sad it is gone and the other products don't come close.

I really wanted to love this product, especially after all the rave reviews I've heard about it. Unfortunately, this pencil just does not work. I bought it in black, and when I tried it at home, I found it was extremely dry and tugged at my inner rims quite a bit just to have any color deposited (which did not stay at all). Thinking I just had a defective pencil, I exchanged it for another pencil, but had the same exact problem, so I completely returned it and gave up on the product. I do not recommend this at all, sorry Tarte.

Seriously the only eyeliner I can actually use. I have such sensitive eyes, I can't use other brands. It goes on easily without much pressure. I use it for top lids mainly.

I love the black for my rims, upper and lower. I found that the color stays on longer than any other I've tried. This gets a 5.

The only thing I've found that stays put on the inner rim. You have to swipe a few times to get noticeable color but once it's there, there's no budge. I have black, brown, and a tan that I got in a set, and that covers me for all occasions.

I really wanted to love this pencil. The idea is great but I cannot apply it. It's super dry and does not give off any color to my inner lids. When I swatched the brown at the store it glided on fine on my hand but when I opened my black liner at home to apply, it seems to be defective or something. What a shame. I still love Tarte and its quality ingredients. Ive had some bad apples though.

I was sadly disappointed by this product. I love Tarte and think they make great products, yet sadly this one wasn't so good. The liner wasn't smooth, it would tug on your eye and wasn't creamy. I wouldn't recommend this product.

This is my all-time favorite day-to-day liner. It's thin so you're in control of how much or how little you use. Easily layered and it stays put!
