If I could only use 1 word to describe this product it would be “crayon” the reason is because the Hard Candy Stay in Line Mechanical Pencil feels more like using a soft crayon vs. an actual eyeliner. It does start off as a bit dry sort of tugging on the lids; so it does take a bit of warming up before the liner becomes soft.
The liner does take 3-4 minutes to dry once it is applied, however it is not very smudge-proof because a bit of rubbing will smear the liner. One suggestion is to use an eyeshadow to set the liner, in order to avoid any smudging. The color does become dull fairly quickly throughout the day, and although the pigmentation is fairly high in this product, it doesn’t have much of a lasting power.
Although this liner came with a sponge tip, it is not very easily blend-able with it, in fact it definitely takes several attempts to succeed in flawless smudging. It is a mechanical pencil, which is great since it means no sharpening, however because you can’t sharpen the liner it is hard to achieve a small thin line due to the round tip.
As far as Hard Candy claiming this product contains Lash Grow Serum, I didn't notice any difference in the length of my lashes but it could be because I only occasionally use this liner.
Overall I do love how this liner is very pigmented and can easily be seen over any eyeshadow color, however I am not impressed with its minimal staying power, and its inability to be smudge-proof.
If you are a person that rubs your eye a lot then this product is not for you, however if you want a very pigmented eyeliner and don't mind having to touch up throughout the day then I would definitely recommend this product! (This product can be purchased at Walmart for $5.00.)
Have you tried this product? Are you able to use the sponge tip applicator? How did this liner work out for you? I'd love to know!!
