The product

How does one describe the perfect liquid eyeliner?

Micro-fine? Rich in pigment? How about long-lasting?

What if we told you that such an eyeliner does in fact exist? Introducing: Revlon ColorStay Micro™ Easy Precision Liquid Liner. This 0.1mm tip liner boasts an ergonomic handle for maximum control, is intensely pigmented, and provides a matte finish that lasts for hours. Plus it’s just $25.

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this easy-to-use and affordable eyeliner.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent the Revlon ColorStay Micro™ Easy Precision Liquid Liner to a panel of women aged 25 to 39 with a penchant for eye makeup.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Revlon ColorStay Micro™ Easy Precision Liquid Liner.

The highly-pigmented finish: According to reviewers, the eyeliner is dark, highly-pigmented, and matte meaning they didn’t have to reapply multiple coats to get an opaque finish. All it took was one steady-handed stroke of the micro-fine brush.

The long-lasting formula: Reviewers were impressed by the eyeliner's staying power, with one member in particular saying she wore it for seven hours total, “three of which were spent smiling and laughing through a theatre production - and it stayed perfectly put the whole time!”.

The budget-friendly price point: Many Review Crew® members mentioned that they’re accustomed to more expensive liquid eyeliner formulas, however they found this $25 option just as good, if not better. 

The verdict

“My friends and I are very impressed with this liquid eyeliner. It's really pigmented and quite easy to apply, it stays on the whole day without smudging - which makes life so much easier when you're used to having to reapply a few times a day. It's very reasonably priced and I have to say that surprisingly it delivers better quality than some of the more expensive liquid eyeliners I've used. I normally use a more expensive brand from Myer or David Jones, but after using this for a couple of weeks I'll definitely be keen to buy it again. I've already recommended it to my sister, and although she was sceptical at first she loves it too!”

“I’ll start this off by saying I’m not usually a liquid eyeliner gal - they’re so easy to get wrong and I find they flake off or fade so fast! But this one is great, probably one of the best liquid liners I’ve tried! The pigment is super dark which was a bit daunting but the tip was a nice mix of soft yet firm, so the colour didn’t smear or bleed when I applied it to my eyelids. I used it to draw a small wing, which I then wore for about 7 hours - three of which were spent smiling and laughing through a theatre production - and it stayed perfectly put the whole time! I will happily reach for this eyeliner again and again!”

“I'm incredibly fussy when it comes to eyeliner, or maybe it's that I have had rotten luck. I was pleasantly surprised with the Revlon ColorStay Micro™ Easy Precision Liquid Liner. The formula of this eyeliner is exceptional. If I had done a blind test, I would have price-marked it much higher. I love when a product is not just good but is affordable. It glides on ever so smoothly, with a matte finish, providing the perfect amount of pigmentation. She didn't smudge (which was one of my main concerns), and for someone who is quite terrible at applying liquid eyeliner, it did a far better job than liners I've used previously.”
