Waste of money

Location: Devon, UK

Purchased this to use on the waterline of the eye. Goes on very pale - you have to build the colour. Only lasts a couple of hours - no better than a cheaper kohl pencil - waste of money at £15.50 - very disappointed - wish I could take it back and get a refund!

smooth liner

Location: Midlands, UK

This goes on really smoothly, doesn't smudge and is great for eye definition. The only way to improve it would be to make it a twist up liner rather than one that needs sharpening.

its not waterproof, has no staying power at all, bareminerals do a much better one for a cheaper price, postage took two weeks customer service was disgusting

Great, just Great!

Location: Fort Worth, TX, USA

I've never been a fan a eye liner. It always looked funny and didn't look natural. I took a chance and bought the slate color. It is awesome! It stays on and doesn't travel anywhere it's not supposed to. Looks great at 5PM as it did at 7AM without any re-applications. However, it is very easy to remove at the end of the day unlike other brands I've tried in the past. I am so happy I took the chance and tried again :)

It's okay

Location: Melbourne VIC, Australia

It is easy to apply and creamy in feel and texture when applying, so it does make the sponge tip at the end easy to smudge with. But I wouldn't say it's waterproof. I've used it a couple times and each time after 3-4 hours I've got smudges around my eyes, so I have to make a conscious effort to wipe under my eyes in case. With that said it's not so bad that I'll stop using it, it does the job of lining my eyes it's just not waterproof.

Great eyeliner

Location: San Antonio, TX, USA

I had been using another department store eyeliner that didn't stay on during the day. I recently got this one and it's awesome! After I work out, it's still there. I use it on my waterline and it's super smooth and easy to apply. It does smear a little but that is expected with the waterline.

Best eyeliner i've used!

Location: Bridgend, UK

I have tried lots of different eyeliners and this is one of my favs! If you hate the pencil feeling and would prefer something a bit smoother/creamer, this is for you! It glides easily onto you waterline and lasts all day! I use mine every day and it has last me 10 months so far!

Great buy

Location: Miami, FL

This liner is great! However, its really smudgy so if you don't want to look like a raccoon within hours, buy their eye primer for long lasting results! :)

Nice color, poor pencil

Location: Springfield, MO, USA

I picked up this eyeliner in the Brown, cause I absolutely LOVE Benefit, but sadly my pencil had been either tampered with or broken because no matter how hard I tried, I could not get anymore of the eyeliner to twist up. I had to throw the pencil away after about 15 uses. It's a great color, but not worth the few uses I got out of it. :(

Amazing Color, Easy to Apply!

Location: Tucson, AZ

The Good: Amazing rich color (blackest black), and the product glides on really (I mean super) smooth. The pencil is a good size and fits comfortable in the hand. Really impressed with how it looks on the lid. The Bad: It takes an industrial strength, professional grade jack hammer to chisels this off your face when you're ready to take your makeup off. I have always used a makeup remover prior to washing my face at night, and even my heavy duty - take everything off - remover had trouble with this stuff. Bottom line. The color is amazing, it feels really good going on, and if you're having a "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" kind of night then this is the eye liner for you!

This product is absolutely fabulous! I didn't exactly believe it wouldn't smudge but it's totally true, it doen't!! I had it on for 10 hours before I even saw a spec of this stuff move! I was amazed! 5/5!

Intense colour that doesn't smudge!

Location: Kelowna, BC

I used this liner in black, and it has a deep, rich colour! It's a creamy pencil that's easy to apply to get perfect lines that look like you're lining your eyes with a liquid liner. I use it on my top lid and on my waterline, it lasts all day long and stays put without having to touch up and smudges.

Location: Madrid, España

I like this a lot, even if I would love it if there were at least two more shades (a violet one and a dark blue one, for example). Charcoal is, I think, my favourite, the one I use most, but the other two are fab. I apply it also under my lower lashes, but using the sponge tip, to smudge the line a little bit so that it doesn't look too harsh. And I also use it as an additional eyeshadow combining it with some Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow shades, such as RSVP, Farenheit Fab or Samba-dy loves me, smudging it. The black one, I combine with Magic Ink liner and the espresso one, for those moments when I feel like using more neutral eyeshadows.

This is a really nice liner but the brown is a little light for my taste, if you like a darker liner shade, I say go for black. It works great!!!! This product is also really easy to apply, But overall this is one of the best liners I've used...

Apr 4, 2012


Location: Asheville, NC

I am slightly embarrassed to say this is my first eyeliner I've ever bought. I bought this at Ulta and continued shopping. Towards the end of my mall shopping, I was hanging out on a bench waiting for my brother to finish shopping when I figured I'd walk around Ulta some more (it IS my favorite place ever..). While shopping I realized the liner I bought was in Charcoal, not black like I'd intended. The checkout counter was so backed up, I could never get the chance to trade in. I just shrugged it off and I'M SO GLAD I DID! The gray color compliments my green eyes perfectly and gorgeously. Plus, gray is a great color for school; it's less dramatic than black for everyday wear. The liner lasts all day and doesn't stray (even without Stay Don't Stray under it!!) at all. I usually have a very hard time (when i test eyeliners) to get color to show. I normally had to grind the pencil down so hard it would poke my eye out if I used it. This liner shows up with the tiniest tickle!! However, the spongetip isn;t very comfortable and I find that it more erases rather than smudges (so i use it as an eraser for my mistakes :D). Overall, I want every color available I love it so much!!! They should make a plum one for green eyes...

Charcoal is Great for Soft Smoky Eye

Location: Northwest, USA

I love the charcoal Badgal pencil. I like a smoky eye, but it is a little too much in black for day, especially in a corporate job. So I use this charcoal pencil and the Benefit Cream Eyeshadow in Skinny Jeans for a softer smoky eye. I have had dozens of people ask me what eye make-up I am wearing. I line my eyes with the pencil, smudge it, apply Skinny Jeans on the upper eye-lid winging it out and then reapply the pencil to the Upper and lower lash-line. My eye makeup lasts ALL DAY and into the evening without having to touch up or reapply. One time I went to bed without removing my make-up and it still looked great the next day! I LOVE this eye-pencil.

What's Going On???

Location: France

I normally love Benefit's products, but when I purchased BADgal liner (brown), I found that I have to apply a lot of pressure to get the colour to appear around my lids. I often have to pull my lids tightly while I'm drawing the line on (bad, since that promotes crows feet), and the colour fades in no time. I was really bummed about this one : (

Lovely smokie eye

Location: Yorkshire

I have this in black and if you have more make-up skill than I do you can make a really nice smokie eye using the smudge. Is it easy to get off? No it is waterproof, you need an eye make-up remover :)

Location: Bristol

This eye liner is really bad and poor quality. I will put it on for a night out and by the time I get to the place I wanna go it has come off and I have panda eyes. I usually love benefit products but this product is an absolute let down.

staying power

Location: NY

i love that this liner stays on my inner rims all day and then some and does not budge. very easy to apply too, it glides on. four stars instead of five because i use black and feel it could be even blacker than it is.

Non-Irritating for contact lens users

Location: Midwest US

I initially bought this eyeliner because it's waterproof, but found that I can leave it on longer than any eyeliner I've used before. I wear contacts and most eyeliners begin to irritate my eyes either by causing a film on contacts or making them feel dried out too soon. BADgal waterproof surprised me when it did not irritate my eyes in any way, so this is the only eyeliner I've used since. Other pluses: goes on smoothly (no tugging), stays on and during the day I use a thinner line just as easy as making a thicker darker line for evening. I use all three colors.

For the high seas and beyond...

Location: San Diego, CA

I originally bought this product because I race on sailboats, and occasionally get a splash of water to the face. A good waterproof makeup is key for looking gorgeous on the high seas. Little did I know, this product would soon become my daily liner- on and off the water. This stuff has the high-octane magic that makes it last all day! I love the sponge smudge thing on the other end to create a blended, smokey effect. If I could give this product 6 hearts I would. Woo hoo!!!

No more panda eyes!

Location: Undisclosed

I have very watery eyes and I had always checked my eyes to see whether I've become a panda bear after wearing an eye makeup. But this product has changed! Thanks to the waterproof part, I don't need to worry about wiping anymore...Also, this pencil is very smooth, making me very easy to apply. Unexpectedly, the smudge part is really working. Either I want natural looking eyes or sexy smoking eyes, the smudge part blends the line perfectly. Especially if you're a make beginner, this pencil is yours!

Location: San Francisco, CA

It is the perfect liner to achieve the medium-thick line I like to use for a cat-eye effect. Although it is waterproof, I don't find it difficult to remove, yet I am able to stay smudge-free all day!

Great quality, great look!

Location: San Diego, CA

I bought the Espresso BADgal liner, and it really brightens and shows off my dark brown eyes. It looks natural and feels great! I'm running out, it's too sad! I use it with my BADgal plum mascara and they make my eyes pop without having to layer on eye products! You gotta love Benefit!

Location: Hoofddorp, The Netherlands

The most brilliant aspect of this product is the sponge tip. Normally when you want to slightly fade your lines with a q-tip or something you can end up removing or ruining the whole thing. This sponge tip fades my lines to natural perfection. Also the charcoal shade is perfect for when black is too harsh for your eyes. Best liner I've ever had.

Perfect Eyeliner

Location: Austin, TX

This is the perfect eyeliner. I have the black and it's stays on great and doesn't leave my eyes all day. This is the only eyeliner I will use going forward.

May 9, 2011


Location: Atlanta, GA

I've been on the hunt for the perfect pencil eyeliner to use on the bottom lash line and water line. This one stays as long as I need it too. Most always end up down around my nose because I have watery eyes and wear contacts even when they say they are waterproof. Not this one! I use Magic Ink on my upper lash line and this on the lower and the combo looks good from morning until I go to bed. I do have to reapply to the water line, but I think no matter what you're going to have to do that.

One of my faves!

Location: Chicago, IL

I reallllly like this eyeliner. It is one of my favorites, but because I am such a eyelineraholic, I have a few favorites out there. It stays very well for me and I love the fact that it has a smudger on the other side of it!!

The Perfect Eyeliner

Location: Los Angeles , CA

This eyeliner is pretty much all you could ask for in a liner. It doesnt smudge unless you want it to. It glides on easily so there is no tugging of my eyes. Because its water proof it last an amazing amount of time in my waterline which is very important for me because thats my favorite place to wear eyeliner. I also love how there is a convenient smudger brush on the other end. Cant go wrong with this liner.

Soft, but stays all day!

Location: PA

I have the typical asian eyes - the eyes with no folds - but it works perfectly on me! I have been looking for eyeliners that won't smudge under my eyes in the end of the day and Badgal liner waterproof did the job. And it applies to your eyes very smoothly after using facial moisturizer. I'm using the espresso one, and it makes my eyes look really deep, rich and sophisticated. But I sometimes use the blending tip to create semi smokey eyes when I go out to party. Even when you create smokey eyes, you won't look like a wh*re, but you will look gorgeous.

Mar 20, 2011


Location: Montevideo, Uruguay

Quite dissapointed. Not waterproof at all. If you're looking for a creamy soft liner that blends well and lasts on you upper lid for some hours, this is the product for you. Instead, if you're looking for something to really define your eyes, that creates sharp lines and that lasts on your waterline all day long, this is totally wrong for you, as it is for me. Too pricey, product doesn't deliver. The smudge tip is a plus, would work better for other liner formula.

Best eyliner ever

Location: San Diego

This is hands down the best eyeliner I have ever used in my life. Not only because it's waterproof, but is easily blendable. I was skeptical at first because it was waterproof and I didn't think I would be able to smudge it once I put it on. I was wrong. Really makes my eyes pop...Can't wait until the espresso and gray colors are available!!

It is aboslutely THE BEST!!

Location: Edmonton, AB

First of all, it is absolutely BLACK, it is soft enough to give that pefect shade of blackest black, yet it is firm enough to draw fine line around your eyes, they smudge a LOT less than any pencil eye liner I've ever used and it has soft sponge tip that you can smudge right after you apply to give smoky look (they do smudge but you won't become panda bear by the end of the night) I would never use other kinds again!! It is every bit worth the price!!

A must have!!

Location: Wisconsin

I love this eye liner! Have tried many different eyeliners and brands. I will not waste my money ever again trying any other eyeliner. This eyeliner goes on smooth, stays put all day, doesn't bleed into my under eye area, and doesn't run during a sad movie. Would defiantly recommend it to everyone.

Will Never Be Without!

Location: Providence, RI

I have tried EVERY eyeliner on the market today (some of them are really expensive) and not one ever stayed on because my eyes water so much. I was envious when I saw anyone with jet black eyeliner on..till I discovered this product a little over a year ago. Now, I hear things like "wow, I never noticed how great your eyes are before" all time! This has totally changed my look, and I LOVE looking in the mirror. I don't care what you do..this stuff stays on. I was actually considering getting eyeliner tatooed on before I found this (couldn't go through with it....and now I'm so glad I didn't). I found out the hard way how addicted I am to this eyeliner.. I left it at a restaurant 50 miles from my home and went all the way back to look for it. When it wasn't there I went to EVERY store that carries Benefit, and of course it was out of stock -EVERYWHERE!! I ordered one through the mail and then I went the next day and bought two I will never have to go through that again.. Once you try this.. you won't ever use anything else!!

I was afraid to wear such dark eyeliner, but this is awesome! I use the blending sponge tip to make it more of a smokey look. Or you can sharpen it and use it with precision. I am now a huge fan of black eyeliner!! And yes, it is VERY waterproof, but comes off easily with make-up remover.
