I was first given this eye liner as a gift. I have ALWAYS used a pencil liner until recently and this was certainly the first ever liquid liner I had used.
The tiny bottle holds 4ml of liquid liner. I have seen this liner for as cheap as £3.99 and compared to other liners, I think it is brilliant value for money!
I like the fact that the slim applicator brush goes right to the bottom of the bottle. AND that the bottle is longer than the lid, which some manufacturers seem to think we are too stupid to realise is a way to get us to spend more money.
The quality is in the liquid liner itself rather than the design of the bottle. IT is a plastic bottle with gold information printed on which has now nearly all rubbed off.
I have sensitive eyes and this is hypo-allergenic product.
It did take a little while getting used to using. It was quite 'dramatic' at first, which is ok if that's what you are after but I found that with a little practise, I could easily create a clean line just at the base of my eyelid. I don't like to use it under my bottom lashes as I think the look is a bit harsh but for the top lashes I love it!
This is a brown black and I am very happy with the colour. I can apply the liner in the morning and it stays put until I take it off before I go to bed so a very durable product!
I have long been a fan of pencil eyeliner and always deemed liquid eyeliner to be too tricky for me to use. After finally plucking up the courage, I bought this tube. I've been amazed by the difference between pencil and liquid eyeliner & am completely happy with this purchase. It cost me around £7 for 6ml.
The liquid eyeliner comes in a simple black tube with delicate gold text. It's a very classic looking product and would complement my make up bag aswell as my Mum's and my Grandma's. The applicator is atttched to the lid, similar to a mascara, and is easily twisted off. The applicatior is very slim and black with a little flexibility at the very end to create curvier flicks such as the cat-like flick (like that of Amy Winehouse).
DOES IT WORK?
YES! The applicator was flexible enough to create curvier lines but still firm enough to create solid lines. The liquid itself was fine and delicate but still provided great slick, black lines. I was also incredibly impressed that the eyeliner stayed put all day and didn't flake whatsoever. It had a fast drying time too, so putting it on was a breeze. I would say though that this eyeliner is not for tose wanting a smudgey, smokey look. A pencil eyeliner is much more suited to this as it is easily blendable.
Does exactly what it should: creates a variety of shapes and lines, doesn't flake or bleed & lasts all day!
My brother got married recently and I was told to glam myself up by my parents prior to the event. I'm not usually the type to plaster myself with make-up and prefer a much more natural look. I actually rarely wear eyeliner because I've always found it tricky to apply and it's difficult to find the right product for the right effect. I was told by my sister to get this product, Boots's No. 7 range Amazing Eyes Liner, and took her advice.
This is sold at Boots the Chemist and is part of their exclusive No.7 make-up range. Their products tend to be a bit pricey and this one is no exception costing the best part of ten pounds. Perks of paying extra are things like being able to consult the No.7 make-up experts in store.
The product comes in a short little tube which is sized at 4mls. It's a black plastic case with very little information printed onto it. Boots do say this is hypo-allergenic and that it provides a "smudge free and precise" finish.
The top has a screw off style mechanism and when you pull out the wand it is very thin. You can't place the wand down on it's end due to the top being slightly rounded. The wand is just over two inches in length and is a good length for being able to hold it comfortably. The wand has a very fine brush at the end which measures just shy of one centimetre long. The brush is flexible and delicate. It does not suck up a lot of liquid and doesn't drip.
I have the shade 'Black' and I find it's a deep, striking jet black which looks dark and prominant after you've applied it to your skin. Due to the brush being quite thin though I do find that the application process isn't completely made easy. I can reach the end of my line and find the liquid thinning so have to dip my wand back into the tube and return to the line. It would be nice to be able to draw a full line without the liquid thinning so much.
The eyeliner liquid dries instantly which is excellent. If you want to create a dramtic look then several layers of liquid liner does the trick and will take slightly longer to dry. I really like the effect of the eyeliner. The style of the brush means you can create very artistic looking lines and achieve those little flicks at the corner of your eyes that look professionally painted. You can choose to paint using the very tip of the brush for thinner lines or press down onto the shaft of the brush for those thicker, heavier lines. Either way it looks good.
I have always had problems with eyeliners as it's just so difficult to get the lines right and this eyeliner is not foolproof. I really needed to practice with this to be able to paint the line in a sleek sweep without making it look like a spider has crawled through the eyeliner. I do find the length of the wand to be helpful and the size and length of the brush factors that help me achieve a reasonable result however. This eyeliner gives a very different look to pencil eyeliners - there is no cloudyness or smudging. It is instead similar to the gel eyeliners that are currently quite trendy.
Once the eyeliner is on it doesn't melt on my skin or fade away which is great. I find the eyeliner easy to remove. You can infact wipe it away with a bit of saliva on a paper tissue if you really need to! Otherwise eye make-up remover liquid or facial cleanser will do it. To remove any mistakes during application I advise having a damp cotton bud to hand.
I'm quite happy with this product and it does help me to get the look I'm after. It does have a short shelf life of six months though and the fragrance of the product is rather similar to nail varnish remover. I also do find you need to dip your brush back into the pot half way through application. However, it allows me to change up my look by enabling me to paint either dainty highlighting lines or dense take-me-to-the-club style lines.
I would buy this again and also recommend it to friends. Price wise it compares well with other liquid gel eyeliners I've seen on the market so I'd say it was an average price.

I am a massive fan of Boot's No. 7 Liquid Eyeliner. After trying a number of brands, About one year ago I settled on this type, and haven't looked back since! I would recommend it to anyone, and after a few practice runs, mastering any look becomes simple!
Easy peasy. The brush is soft enough to bend into the right shape, yet firm enough to properly apply the liquid. The only complaint would be that the tube can get a bit slippy, especially if your hands are wet!!!
The container is subtle, but sleek. In boots, I'm always drawn to the flashy packaging (hello Soap and Glory!) but I quite like this. Simple black tube with gold writing.
*Length of Use*
I use the liner about five times a week, only lining the top lid, and am known to get through about 1 tube every 2 months. I line my lids pretty heavily, so this is pretty good. If you were only using it for special occasions, then it would obviously last longer.
I never take makeup out with me, so it's really important that my makeup stays put. I've never had a problem with this liner running, and (just to prove a point!) I watched a sad film earlier and cried lots, yet the eyeliner is still fully in tact. Success!
They offer the liner in black and brown. I've only ever tried the black, and it is very black. When the tube is running out, it sometimes requires two layers to create a strong line, but most of the time it looks fine with only one coat.
The perfect liner for any look, day or night.
I bought this in boots for £10 after bein drawn in by the gorgeous litte cube-shaped box, which is white with a flash of blue, with 'No7 eyeliner' written on the front in large black writing. It's a really elegant looking product with the packaging adding to that factor.
It comes in a compact palet, with a small brush which i'm not keen on as it was pretty useless for applying the eyeliner, however it was handy for applying eyeshadow. I usually use eyeliner pencils, but since I bought this, i've been wearing it almost everyday. It's ridiculously easy to apply - i've never used gel eyeliner before, and it was so simple and looks gorgeous, amazingly not smudging even after 2 whole days of not taking it off!
I'd reccomend this to anyone who wears alot of eyeliner and is bored of the pencils. It's cheaper but very similair to MAC, in my opinion. If you're a big MAC fan but feel it's rather expensive, then i'd reccomend this product!
There are various colours available; black, navy & turquoise. If you don't want to spend £10 purely on an eyeliner, there are still lots of other options, such as Sleek, with there liquid liner almost as good quality at just £4.
I have mixed feelings about Boots No.7 products; some I've been very pleased with, such as their foundations, eye pencils and lipglosses, and some I've found very disappointing, such as the somewhat notorious 'Extravagant Lashes' mascara with a peculiar applicator, and the trio eyeshadows.
I decided to try the No.7 Amazing Eyes Liquid Eye Liner in order to take advantage of one of the No.7 promotions that are offered from time to time; usually a selection of free samples of products if you spend over £20 or so. I like to use liquid eyeliner because of the very strong definition effect that it achieves, and I've found some brands are much better than others; the 17 one is not fantastic; Rimmel Exaggerate is pretty good, and so on.
When I first bought No.7 Amazing Eyes Liquid Eyeliner, it was packaged in a container bearing a resemblance in shape to an inkwell with a pen protruding from it; a tube with a rounded, wider end. Nowadays it is supplied in a straightforward black, shiny cylindrical tube with gold lettering, which looks elegant. The lettering does wear off in a make up bag after a few weeks, though. It costs £8.50 for 4ml, which may not sound a lot, but it lasts at least three months with daily use in my experience, and anyway, it should ideally be used within 6 months or so of opening, because of the eyes' susceptibility to excessive bacteria levels that may build up.
When the eyeliner is opened, there is a brush attached to the lid, with which the product should be applied. It is a nice, fine, flexible brush, and it deposits an ideal amount of the liquid onto the upper lashline. You can draw quite a fine line with it, and go back over it to create a thicker line if you so wish. Make up artists often recommend resting your hand on your cheek in order to steady it, to ensure that you get a neat line. Flicking the line up at the outer corners of the eyes gives you a glamorous, wide-eyed look.
Some liquid eyeliners are too watery for creating a good, solid line, but this No.7 product has the perfect consistency for a solid, black, opaque line. It doesn't crumble throughout the day, and lasts well. It is easy to remove with a simple cosmetics wipe. It doesn't sting the skin around the eyes. It is now my favourite liquid eyeliner, with Rimmel Exaggerate second best (its brush tends to shed fibres and become thin after a while; not a problem I've noticed with this No.7 product), and NYC (available from Superdrug) providing my budget option.
£8.50 may be considered fairly expensive, but it's worth looking out for the £5 beauty vouchers and special deals that Boots sometimes offer.
I first tried this no.7 amazing eyes liquid eye liner when i got a £5 voucher off any no.7 product in Boots. I am always getting these vouchers and i dont like wasting them! So i always try and get something!
I thought i would try a liquid eyeliner, i had never tried one before and had always used a pencil eyeliner. So i bought this one, which was £8.50, but i only paid £3.50 for it with my voucher. I thought i might as well give a liquid one a go for that price! No.7 products are usually very good and i have loads of their make up and beauty products. This eye liner is another of their great products!
Ive always thought i would make a mess of my make up applying a liquid eye liner, but this one was so easy to put on. There wasnt too much on the brush that it came out to thick and smudged like i thought it would, there was just the right amount to apply.
I only apply eyeliner to the top eyelid, and it went on very smoothly, and it dried very quickly, so you have to work quick with this eyeliner.
I was amazed that i didnt need to reapply this through out the day, with it being a liquid eyeliner i thought it would rub off really easily, but it didnt. This eyeliner really does last the whole day and doesnt wear off, until you remove it!
This was very easy to take off too, i just used some cotton wool and my usual eye make up remover and it came off very easily. It also comes off no problem with baby wipes.
This eyeliner comes in either black or brown. I use the black one, and it comes in a 4ml bottle. This eyeliner has lasted me four months so far, and there is still some left! So for £3.50 this product is a bargain, it lasts ages, is easy to apply and stays put all day without smudging or fading! I am hoping to get another £5 voucher to purchase another one of these, but if i dont get one soon i am happy to pay full price as it is worth every penny! Deffinately give this product a go!
I got this with another of the wonderful no7 vouchers that boots seem to dole out quite regularly. It costs around £8.50 so with £5.00 off it's a real bargain.
It is only 4ml, but it will really last ages as it's not something I would wear everyday, and it's very runny so you don't need to use much in one application.
It is quite small in size, I would say about 8cm so great for nights out and small handbags.
The eye liner comes with a small brush attached to the lid, and it does take some practice to apply, but that is the same with most liquid liners.
I find all liquid liners very hard to apply, but they do llok good once you get it right, I always have cotton buds on hand though to try and make the lines a bit straighter. If you have too much liquid on the brush it's an absolute nightmare.
I have found that this particular liner is no easier or harder than other liquid ones to apply, but it is very easily removable, which is very handy if you make a mistake or slip while doing it. I have had others that really stain so are even harder to apply.
I'm sure there is an art to applying this and if you use it on a regular basis it's probably quite easy, but I like that with this one it is easy to remove.
I would recommend this as a liquid eye liner, purely as it's easy to remove if you make a mistake, it is still difficult to apply, but I don't think that is down to the brand.
I never really used a lot of eye make up, only mascara every day. When I decided that I wanted to start testing out different eye make up, I went to Boots and No7 was just the first make I went to, as I had bought a few other products from the make in the past. I found this liquid eye-liner for £8.50, but had a £5 off voucher for No7 and using that, I bought the product for just £3.50 (at the moment, they seem to be giving lots of those vouchers away - very handy!). I use this eye liner on my upper lid, just a thin line with a small flick on the outside corners of my eyes. I fould that it is really easy to apply with the thin brush it has, and it was really easy to get used to too - it wasn't too fiddly! Even if you do make a small mistake (e.g. if you get knocked or you sneeze!), act fast and get a bit of tissue or a cotton bud, and it just wipes clean away, without leaving any smudges, which is very handy if you're in a rush to get ready! It lasts several hours, but then can start to dry up a bit and starts to flake off, but it's a compact product that you can just slip into your handbag or even your purse, and then just top it up if neccessary. The actual product lasts a long time too - although I only use it 2-3 times a week, it has lasted me several months already. A great essentials buy which its worth the money - even at full price!
I'm really not the best at putting on eye liner, I have been searching for a long time for a decent, easy to use eye liner, unfortunately this is not the one for me.
Normally I absolutely love boots No 7 products, they are of very high quality, and usually (for me) last a good amount of time.
With this eye liner, I found it too runny, and it didn't dry quick enough, so when you blink, it goes all over your eyelid - so the times I have attempted to use it, I have had to re-do my eye make several times. Another problem is that its not very easy to clean off - I prefer to simply use face wipes, although to get all off this off I had to use that greasy eyemaker remover that I really hate using.
Despite many off these issues - (that are probably my own fault), I can't deny that the quality of the product is bad, because so far, after my many attempts of using, it is still lasting. Also, I sometimes find that some eye liners go a bit off a weird colour when they have dried, with this product, it stays the same bright colour that it is meant to be, although after a while it does tend to fade a bit, and go a bit spotty.
For about £8.75 it's a bit expensive, I'm sure there are other far more superior eye liners on the market, although Its often that Boots are running a 3 for 2 special, or they have a gift voucher thing, so you can often get it for a lot cheaper, which is a good idea, if you just want something else to buy.
I have big baby blue eyes and like to take full advantage of them when applying my 'going out' make up. I've always been a fan of the doe-eyed look - not to the extent of Amy Winehouse - but just a good strong eye line with a little flick at the end. I could never really achieve this look with a pencil liner as I could never get a clean line that would last the day. I felt the pencil liner always smudged meaning I had to frequently reapply my make up to keep the look fresh. This is the last thing you want to do when your out having drinks.
So I decided to give a liquid eye liner a try. There are so many on the market now but seen as No.7 is my favourite cosmetics brand I decided on this one in black for maximum effect.
The liner tip is more a thin brush than the ususal pen style and I feel that due to this it is much easier to apply. It also gives you the ability to chose how thick or thin a line you want. Being used to pencil liners the liquid liner did take a bit of getting used to and I had to have several practice attempts before I got the desired effect. If you're not used to applying make up or have a shaky hand then the liquid liner may not be for you as the colour is much darker than with a pencil liner and any mistakes will be easily noticed.
If you do feel the urge to change to a liquid eye liner then I would recommend this product due to it's quality. The colour is strong and the applicator brush is much superior to the normal pen style. I have also found that the liquid eye liner is much easier to remove and you don't wake up with panda eyes the next day.
I hardly ever buy number seven products. I feel they are marketed at the more mature lady and therefore don't quite reach me! However, every now and then boots offers no7 vouchers with your shopping. So I had no excuse not to use it to buy a black liquid eyeliner as this was what had run out most recently in my make up bag.
The liquid eyeliner costs 8.50 in price, with my voucher, I got it for a bargain 3.50. The eyeliner comes in a few colours, but I chose black for a thick deliberate effect.
The eyeliner comes in a small black tube, with golden yellow simplistic writing on it. The packaging is very mature.
The lid is a screw top with a very fine thin brush at the end of it, which dips into the liquid. You take it out, brush a little off of it onto the sides to thin the effect and carefull paint it onto your eyelids.
First off, the big pulus point. This is so easy to apply, and to apply accurately. The brush is nice and thin and it is easy to get a nice coverage in a nice pattern on your eye lid.
Now for the downside. When first applied the black is thick and solid and very deliberate, which is great, exactly what I was after. But once it has been on for a little while it fades and becomes patchy, and in my opinion this happens far too quickly. For this reason, next time my eyeliner runs out I will be trying a few other brands before returning to number 7.
No7 were having a 3for2 offer running, and I was running low on eye-cream, so I popped along to a local Boots store.
Mr M wanted some moisturiser for after shaving, so that was two items. Now all I needed was the third for the offer.
On the desk they were showing their new eye liner. Amazing Eyes Liner it's called. From what they had out, there were only two shades available: black and black/brown. At £8.50 I don't suppose it's too expensive for a 4ml tube that will last 6 months. Having a black already in my makeup box, I picked up the brown/black, which looks like a deep chocolate colour.
I do own a few of the other No7 eyeliners, so I knew this wouldn't be a waste of money.
The applicator is just the same as the Stay Perfect Eyeliner, a short thin brush. Great for painting your eyes, although I guess you could paint things onto other parts of your face or body if you so wished.
The colour is deeper than the tube had me hope for. More a 70% cocoa chocolate than an easy to eat milk choc. But the colour is consistent throughout the swipe of the brush, and is less harsh than black, so easy to wear.
Removal is a straight forward makeup remover wipe, though if you put the liner on in more than one layer, your eyes maybe a little tender after you've rubbed it off.
I can't believe that no-one else has reviewed this excellent product! Ah well, here goes.
First of all, I do have sensitive eyes, so I don't wear eyeliner every day. But when I do this is the best one I have found so far. Problems I have had in the past are with the 'felt-tip' pen type applicator. I used the Colourfast one, which was extremely durable but I just did not find it very easy to apply. I had a No.7 offer and saw this eyeliner and thought I'd give it a go. I actually bought the black and then loved it so much I went and bought the brown one too, for wearing during the day as it is not so harsh.
The eyeliner is a good size - not so small that it gets lost in your handbag, not so big as to be annoying. And the applicator is a brush. I know some people don't get on with brush applicators, but I am a total convert after this. I find the felt tip pen type can be too 'hard' so they leave a harsh line that is hard to get right into the lash line for a natural look. With this brush applicator and the consistency of the eyeliner it just merges naturally with your lash line, which is the aim of the game after all. The eyeliner is a nice lush creamy consistency. It is much more natural looking for me, and easier to get the effect I want. I don't smudge it as such, but at least it does not look like I have actually used a felt tip pen to apply it! T
The staying power of this is really good too. I like make up that stays put! And as for No.7, I totally trust this brand to be medically approved and to do what it says on the tin. They have the best ingredients and it will be non-allergenic. Excellent products. I used to think No.7 was just for older women, but now I am one (ha ha 41!!!) I realise what I didn't realise when I was younger: it costs a little bit more but that's because it's really good! I buy designer make up for some things, but my eyeliner is always going to be No.7 for sheer excellence.
