It has been quite some time since I’ve used an actual eyeliner pencil.  After years of wearing them I wrote them off entirely when I discovered MAC’s fluidline. 

Here are my reasons for not liking eyeliner pencils:

  • far too expensive for the quality
  • never lasts long
  • ALWAYS runs down my face
  • seems to run out too quickly

Recently, however, I decided I wanted to try another eyeliner pencil…I wanted something remotely cheap because I was sure I wouldn’t like what I bought.  I went with Revlon’s ColorStay eyeliner in black (about $6.97 at CVS).  I chose this because of the name (colorstay) and also because it is waterproof (I’ve never used a waterproof eyeliner before).

I am beyond amazed at how well this eyeliner works!!  It goes on flawlessly…it has sort of a creamy feel to it as well.  You can easily put a little bit on , without worrying if the line is perfect, then spread it out with an eyeliner brush.  This eyeliner does not budge!  I don’t have to worry about it falling down my face after wearing it for an hour (I’ve even slept in it and it stays put!)  Now I just need to find a good makeup remover for waterproof makeup!

This eyeliner works so well and it’s so easy to apply it’s almost beating out MAC’s fluidline!
