From the Revlon website: Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner glides on easily adding drama and definition to your eyes for up to 16 hours. Waterproof formula won't smear, smudge or fade. Available in 8 shades.

I agree that this eyeliner is easy to apply and goes on easily.  The waxiness of the eyeliner does glide over the eyelid and leaves a nice, strong line behind. It can be smudged over to create more of a smokey (and less of a bold line) look. I enjoy this liner because it is easy to use and it relatively easy to correct any small mistakes that are made while lining.  What I dont really care for is that it says it stays on all day...but it doesn't.  It leaves reminants that do smudge throughout the day--and sometimes the liner from my top eyelid is on my bottom eyelid by the time the night is over. This product also does not come off as easily as some say...I have to scrub it a bit to remove it all.  I also am not happy with the sharpener...it tends to break off the entire tip instead of sharpening it.  I do like that the eyeliner is a twist up design--which makes the process easier.  I have been using the black Colorstay liner for months now...and it has to be my favorite of all of the liners I have tried.

I recently received a free colorstay eyeliner in the shade of teal along with a mascara I purchased.  I was excited to try a new color, but to my disappointment the teal liner made my eyes water all day long.  I may be allergic to something in it...but I never have any reaction to my colorstay liner in black.

 

***Final thoughts***:  If you are a fan of eyeliners...go for this one...but don't expect it to be perfect.

I've been using this eyeliner for awhile now, and I have been fairly happy with it. Before finding this one I tried liquid liners and other pencil liners, but the liquid liners always ran or smeared, and the pencils always needed to be sharpened and were never waterproof. This one is not a ton better than any other eyeliner, but it does have the added plus of not having to be sharpened which I have always enjoyed. As for it staying on all day, I'm not totally convinced. I can apply the Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner in the morning and if I sweat at all....well...it doesn't "stay." It's not like it will drip down your face like a classic mascara, but it does kind of smudge or smear if you're not careful. It is easily cleaned up and reapplied though. I guess the real reason I've used it for so long though, is because I simply could not find anything better which is rather disappointing if you consider the above let downs with it, but I have now found something better: Maybelline Unstoppable Eyeliner!

Great eyeline

By 

from USA

Comments about Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner - All Shades:

I bought this for the first time a few weeks ago. It seems every eyeliner I buy ends up smudging or fading away. I am not an expert at applying it, and I just have a very hard applying it the way I would like to. I am not one to fuss with make up once it is applied so was looking for something that would last without having to reapply throughout the day. The first time I applied this my first surprise was how smoothly and easily it went on. I am not used to an eyeliner gliding so easily. I was able to do much better with getting it applied smoothly and the way I like. The second thing I was very impressed with is that after hours of wear, it still looked as fresh as when it was first applied. I had no smudges, and no fading. The lasting effect was something I am not used to at all. Overall I am very impressed with the Revlon Colorstay eyeliner and would recommend it to all who want an eyeliner that will actually stay on and look good all day without having to fuss with it.

Great eyeliner, stays all day.

Comments about Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner - All Shades:

This eyeliner does exactly what it says: stays all day. Revlon's ColorStay Eyeliner is the best eyeliner I have ever used. I put it on in the morning and unlike many pencil eyeliners I have tried, it stays on for pretty much the whole day. I don't notice any smudging unless I've been perspiring more than usual during the day. The best part is, I don't even need any eyelid primer, which is a plus as this cuts the cost of buying a primer.
I have the black and the charcoal colors and they look nice on. The fact that is comes in several attractive colors is a cool bonus.
Also, I have pretty bad allergies and I find my eyes watering, especially in the morning. This is the only eyeliner that still stays on even after the mini allergy attacks.
If you're looking for a liquid eyeliner that will actually stay on, has beautiful, bold colors, and that is easy to apply, look no further. Best eyeliner 10 bucks can buy.

Best eyeliner ever

By

Comments about Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner - All Shades:

It feels like gel, but looks cleaner, finer and stays on all day. I love this eyeliner because it even stays on my waterline. Most other eyeliners run after a few hours but this one stays on all day! It is dark and precise and easy to apply. I like that I do not have to sharpen it ever. This is my favorite Revlon product

Comments about Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner - All Shades:

I am a loyal consumer to Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner and have been for over 15 years. It goes on smooth, stays put, and has a built in sharpener that helps to get the point you need to draw fine lines around the eyes. It lasts all day, which is important when you work, then have errands and sports events to attend.

be oh so careful

By

Comments about Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner - All Shades:

This product definitely works, maybe a little to well. I use this product on the top of my eye to make my eyelashes stand out. I accidentally got a little of it on my eyelid and even after trying to wipe it of it stayed. I had to use makeup remover and a little rubbing alcohol to get it of. If I you try to just rub it off then it will only smear. The oils in the liner help it to stay all day so women do not have to keep reapplying their makeup. I was pleased with this product over off. You just have to be careful about making sure the eyeliner is even on both eyes the first time or it will be hard to correct. I have got the blue liner. I have green eyes but I like to use the blue with green eye shadow because it makes it stand out. The liner is soft. My advice is not to push to hard. The harder you push the thicker the line will be. Overall a good product. Does what it promises to do. i will be a repeat customer.

Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner - 201 Black is great!

By 

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner - All Shades:

Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner in black is good for everyday wear. The pencil is soft so the eyeliner goes on smoothly. The color is intense and lasts a long time. I also like the built in sharpener at the bottom of the pencil. Once sharpened you can get a pretty thin line or if you like a thicker line, just keep the end blunt. If you don't touch your eyes, it doesn't really go anywhere. If you touch your eyes a lot, it's not for you since it comes off easily and smudges. So if you're going for the smudged look, it's great! I like that it comes off easily with makeup remover. I do wish it didn't smudge but if I put a little eye shadow under and over it, it's not too bad since I don't touch my eyes too much. I like the fact that you can find this in any drugstore, making it easily accessible. The price is also very reasonable and you can always find in-store deals and even coupons. This can make for an awesome deal if you're lucky!

Pretty decent for the price

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner - All Shades:

I got this eyeliner when I was a beginner. i first read some reviews on it, and there were mixed reviews. This eyeliner is great, and amazing for traveling because it also comes with a sharpener. I realized that I've never really used the sharpener, because the eyeliner is twistable, so you don't really need to sharpen it at all. I finished this product! There wasn't that much product in it, but worth it for the price. I got this in the darkest black, and it brightened my eyes. I have dry skin for the most part, but my eyelids are dry-oily. They're only a little oily. I put this eyeliner on my top waterline, but it still ends up smudging onto my bottom. I wipe it away once, and it doesn't smudge again. I don't get why this happens. This sharpener is pretty good for the most part, but you have to work with it. It definitely isn't water proof. This look is great if you want to create a smokey effect, because you can blend and smudge it with your fingers or a q tip to make the look more smokey.

Great "drugstore" eyeliner

By 

from Colorado Springs, CO

Comments about Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner - All Shades:

I have been using this eyeliner for over a year and am very happy with it. I prefer eyeliners like this, it's a long "crayon" that you simply twist to dispense more, there is no sharpening required (or poky shavings that sometimes occur on a eye pencil). I use it in black, and it glides on really nicely and smudges easily with your finger (it does not have a built-in smudger like some brands). It lasts pretty much all day, and removes really easily with just soap and water-you don't have to use eye makeup remover. I use it every day and one eyeliner lasts me months and months. This is sold in drugstores and is available pretty much anywhere.

Goes on smooth and bold!

By 

from South El Monte, CA

Comments about Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner - All Shades:

This is one of my favorite eyeliner! I wear eyeliner everyday so I have a feel of which ones stay on well and ones that don't. The best thing about this eyeliner is that it does not smudge. It definitey stays all day without any reapplication. I also like the sharpening tip at the end, which is very important, especially when you want more of a defined vs. smudge look.

The color black comes on very bold and dark and applies on VERY easily. It is not oily like other eyeliners nor does it clump when you apply it to your lid line. The liner probably lasts me about 4 months with regular everyday wear. At the end of the day, I place a bit of lotion onto a qtip and wipe it off pretty easily.

Cons? Maybe a smudge sponge tool at the other end.
