Once I tried some of the ColourPop eyeliners and saw how awesome they worked, I was kicking myself for not ordering the black one. So, I ordered it in the pencil form and I think it's pretty safe to say it's one of the better black eyeliners out there!
There is no doubt about it, twist-up eyeliners, as long as they are smooth, are my favorite form of eyeliner. They're easy to work with, you don't have to sharpen them, you don't have to be super careful with them like a liquid, and you don't have to keep re-dipping like with a gel one in a pot. That being said, I grab for this one every day that I don't feel like doing a fancy cat eye or any type of liner that requires a lot of precision!
The formula is a good dark black, which is what I of course look for in a black liner. I hate when they go on charcoal-y or gray, or if they skip and tug at your skin. I don't have any of those issues with this one, and it does NOT budge after it sets. That doesn't make it the best for smudging, because you have to work quick with it, but boy does it last all day! It's even pretty awesome on the waterline, which I always have a problem with. I should also mention that I tested this while wearing my contacts and it didn't irritate my eyes either - double points!
For $5 you cannot beat this. It's cheaper than pretty much every drugstore liner and works better too! It even rivals most of the expensive high end liners I've tried, which is saying a lot. I don't know how ColourPop does it, but they continue to knock it out of the ballpark with their products!!
