I am fairly new to the world of liquid eyeliner, so I have been buying as I go. I needed something that would have an at least 8 hour wear and I read some good reviews about the Intensify me liquid liner, so I went ahead and bought it, it was on-sale for around $5. I was not really all that impressed, I need to get really close to a mirror and pull my eyelid for a good 30 seconds while and after I apply it, so it doesn't smudge on my eye or my brow crease. I found that I have to have my eye shadow on before I apply it because if I don't, it feathers really badly. I do like the paddle brush though, it gives you the option to do a thick or thin line, which is nice. All in all, its not a bad liner, but it does look cheap if you don't have the time to apply it properly, and it smudges and feathers. I won't buy it again, nor would I recommend it.
I received this free from Bzzagent for testing purpose. This is the best liner I have ever used for winged liner. It is the perfect firmness and doesn't get worn down or goes limp. Also the way you can use it to get a thick liner or thin liner is awesome. It really helps getting a nice thick liner on the top lashes and then when you get to outer of the eye to wing out you use the thin side. The black is very bold to help with that dramatic look. The liner hasn't dried out, still applies great. One suggestion is to a primer or shadow on your lid because it will apply better. I tried it alone but my skin is oily so it took a few time to go over it to apply good.
I was excited to try this product. It was a great price for what it offered and CoverGirl has a great reputation. The paddle end for the eyeliner is difficult to get use to, but once you do it works well. The product was great until about two weeks later and it was mostly dried out. I was very disappointed. Ladies, my advice is save your money and buy yourself some Benefit. It's going to last longer and will go on like a dream!
Honestly, I've never tried Liquid Eyeliner. I can barely use a pencil correctly. I youtubed videos because after my first use, I needed all the help I can get. The things I loved about the liquid Eyeliner is that it has a thin or thick tip to achieve the look your going for. Its hard so it doesn't bend or move. I also like if I made a mistake, I can easily remove it with makeup eye remover. I'll keep trying to perfect it and post a perfect eye look.
I was able to test this product, and after using it I would not purchase it on my own. I found that it wasn't dark enough and it wasn't comfortable to apply. I did like that it lasted throughout the day and did not smudge though. If the applicator was softer and the colour more intense I would re-consider purchasing in the future.
I wear liquid eyeliner every time I wear make-up - it is a regular part of my make-up routine - I have been doing so since I was 13. And so, I feel like I am fairly well versed when it comes to the realm of liquid liners. Right off the bat, I will say that I absolutely LOVE the shade of blue on this liner! It is like a royal blue with a nice matte finish - I have been really loving the combination of the sapphire liner with a nice gold eyeshadow. The consistency of the liner itself is nice - it's not overly wet or dry - it doesn't take too long for the liner to dry, which is nice. I did do a smudge test on the back of my hand, and it did rub off a bit. However, I had no such problems on my eyes - the liner lasted the entire day. It glided smoothly over my other eye make-up (i.e. primer and eyeshadows). I do like the fact that the liner comes in a pen format - it is a lot easier to control while trying to draw a line. With that said, however, I am honestly not a huge fan of the new "paddle" tip. I wish the felt tip was finer/thinner! Even the thinnest part of the tip is quite thick, making it a little difficult to really control the thickness of the line you draw. Also, because the paddle tip is rounded. I feel like when I do use the wider side, I can't get a nice sharp edge on my liner - it's much more rounded. So, I have to go back in with the finer tip to sharpen up the edges. I feel like it will take a little getting used to the tip - so, with practice I might actually come to appreciate the new tip. However, my first few impressions have left me wishing the tip was smaller. I do worry that the felt tip might dry up quickly, but so far, it has remained moist.
This is a mixed review, I have the deep blue Sapphire shade. I love that the marker tip is flat/long at one angle and skinny/precise when you turn it so I can more easily put a smaller line in the inner eye and thicken it out towards the outer eye. The blue was a nice change from my usual black and contrasted nicely with my light brown eyes. It cleans up super easy, even with just water and no rubbing at all really. When comparing it to a liquid pen liner I didn't like it as much though. Being a marker it is drier in comparison and doesn't make a straight line as easily so I had to go over and over a lot more. It wasn't as intense and dramatic as a liquid liner. I do like that the pen has a little inward indentation and frostiness to prevent it from slipping and dropping on the floor. So basically as a marker style pen it works well and the innovative tip is where it's at, but I would switch back to a liquid pen liner again.
Covergirl intensify me liquid liner is for the expert liquid liner girl! I felt just too old, so it is probably me, but I could not apply this to my satisfaction (and yes my standards are high, but I am forgiving). So what went wrong? Maybe my crows feet interrupted the flow, maybe my hands shook too much from nervousness of misapplication, but in the end, no matter what, I kept thinking, where is my gel pencil? I just couldn't get this to glide on and it made me feel bad.
I'm a girl who wears mascara and eyeliner on a daily basis however I have never tried a liquid eyeliner before and I was a little intimated to be completely honest. I liked how this liner has both a thin edge to line the lid and it also has a wider edge if I wanted a more dramatic look.
This is very easily applied to the skin, there was no need to go over the same area more than once. Since I'm new to this product I wanted to go as basic as possible at first so that I could learn how to apply this liner properly.
This is a very pigmented solid black color and it really stands out when applied to the eye area. This is not something I would wear on a daily basis but this is the perfect product for me to use when wanting to achieve a dramatic look for a night out and the more I experiment with this eyeliner the more I love it.
Oh my goodness, I tried this out this morning and ended up with intense blue everywhere! It's such a pretty colour, but the applicator is not easy to create a clean, nice wing with - and I'm a pro at this.
Also, it smudged everywhere. I'll try it again to see if it's something I need to get used to, but currently as it stands this is not a good product.
