This is the worst eye liner ive ever used. A few minutes after applying and you already have the beginning stages of racoon eyes. It also gave me red, itchy peeling eye lids; contact dermatitis! I did the buy one get one half off and regret it.

I bought this, wore it out to a dinner. Glad I checked my make up before I left because it had already started to smudge some how. Also, I removed my make up before I went to bed and I woke up the next morning with red, itchy eyes. Dont buy

I think this is the worst eyeliner I have ever bought as soon as I put it on it looks good but 5 seconds later it's smudged. I have coon eyes before I leave the bathroom. I'm not buying this again, sad that I wasted my money on it.

Allergic Reaction- --aweful!!

Ive used this in the past, didn't do this, like others said maybe ingredients were changed. I tried it twice weeks apart to make sure it was the liner. Eyes got real red, discharge, woke up eyes shut, painful to touch watery blurry vision

This is the absolute worst eyeliner I have ever used. It goes on easily and smoothly, but does not last. When I put it on my upper eyelid, it immediately smears onto my lower eyelid and all over. It does not stay on. I will never buy this product.

Has formula changed? Having allergic reaction ...

I've been using the define-a-line eyeliner pencil for years, but now I'm having an allergic reaction within a few hours of putting it on. At least three times now I've opened a new eyeliner and within hours start having symptoms similar to conjunctivitis (itching, burning, red, mucus that keeps coming back). I thought maybe there is some coating that I'm reacting to because it always happens after I first use a new one, so I opened one today, used a napkin to hopefully get past the coating, then applied. Now, a few hours later I'm having the symptoms again. Did they change something about the formula recently??? I love the way it goes on, but it does smear easily, and now with this reaction I will have to switch brands.

Smudgy, short-lasting, difficult to use

When I most recently purchased this product the tip was far too soft, causing much too much eyeliner to be penciled on as I used it. It smudges all day and is essentially gone by afternoon. The soft tips breaks often, wasting makeup. Refund please.

Terrible Mascara

This is one of the worst eyeliners I have ever used. The color of it is very rich and black, but that is the only good thing about it. I used it to tightline my upper lash line, and for the rest of the day it is literally smudging off onto my undereye area. I have rarely used any products in my life that give 'raccoon eyes.'I even tried putting UDPP (eye shadow primer) under my eyes and a lot of eyeshadow to try and keep it in place, but NOTHING helps. Really disappointing because I tend to like Maybelline products a lot. This eyeliner is terrible, terrible, terrible. I'm going to just end up throwing it out.

they got rid of my life-long liner in the red. It never smudged. This is awful. I look like a raccoon by mid-day! Terrible product. Way too soft.

Nothing to necessarily complain about, but there are way better products out there. I would still use this, but definitely would not repurchase.

Best eye liner ever!

There are four women in our house...and define-A-line is the only liner you will find in any of our make-up cases! Even though between us we have three different eye colors we all use deepest black liner, each in her own way. I always keep an extra new one never know when one of us is going to need it! Especially during the school year since two of my daughter's go away to College and you never know what they will need to take back to school on those quick weekend visits home!

Don't fix it if it aint broke!

Why did you get rid of the line stylist? Now you have a bunch of scalpers selling off the last of them on EBAY at a rip off price. Thanks for nothing!!!

I found this site online specifically to come complain. This is the worst eyeliner I've ever purchased. It gets everywhere immediately after you put it on. I don't have an oily complexion either. Don't buy! I recommend Loreal High Intensity Pigments.

If you want to look like a raccoon...

I bought this eyeliner because it was the only black eye liner the store had that day. I should have just waited for them to restock the kind I normally get. It goes on easily, but comes off just as easily. Every time I wear it I have to constantly check it because it runs worse than any eye liner I have ever had. Unless you want black smudges under your eyes making you look like you belong in a horror movie, I'd stay away from this eye liner.

This is my all time favorite cosmetic tool product and formula above all others. I cannot live without this one. This is the one and only liner that I use on my Lash-line.
