I have been using it for five years and I don't see myself changing anytime soon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product Change?? I've been using this product and eyeliner for many years. The last eyeliner I purchased, the black was not black at all, and went on extremely light. Either the product changed or I got a defective eyeliner. Previously I would have given 5 stars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from suzie pittman As most the many reviews say . . I have been using this eyeliner for 26+ years an, it now IS NOT THE SAME. Why can't the company just admit it? Things that make you go. . Hmmmmm?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product is different I have been using this product for years and always loved it. The last several I have purchased, it's almost like they have hardly any product in them??? One of the main things I always liked was the brush applicator and still do, but if you can't get any product on the brush to put on the eye it's useless. And like some of the other reviews, it seems to crack and come off in bits. I thought maybe I had just purchased some from a batch that wasn't made right, but every one I have purchased lately is the same. Please go back to making it the way you always did!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wimpy, floppy brushed Since I can never find my favorite Maybelline liquid eyeliner, Stiletto, in Brownish Black lately (only Blackish Black), I tried this. Awful! Nothing is worse than a floppy brush when trying to apply liquid eyeliner, and when I went to "soften" what I WAS able to apply, 75% came off! In fairness, I apply liner slightly under and among my lashes. If you drag this liner across your eyelid above your lashes (drag being the operative word here), it might work and the "Dark Brown" color was pretty and not too dark I prefer Stiletto because the brush has just the right "stiffness" (not too much; not too little), the formula has more staying power if you need to slightly smudge it, and the wand is just the right length for control.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed long time customer I've been a long time user of this product. I bought a new one recently and was so upset that the color changed to a lighter shade. The brush isn't the same either. Please bring back the original.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from terrible change I bought what I thought was my normal Maybelline ultra liner eyeliner. Not so. You have changed the formula and made it into some kind of watery thin glossy hard to use mess. I absolutely hate what you have done. Please bring back my old "not glossy" eyeliner. I do not like any other brands either. If you still sell the unglossy eyeliner somewhere please let me know. I took the stuff back to the store for a refund.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from unsatisfied customer I was very disappointed with this liner. It peeled off within just a minute or two of applying. No matter how thin or thick you apply it it was the same ending result. As a loyal customer I am very unsatisfied with this product especially for the $.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Simply Awful I had written a previous review because the first time I tried this it seemed like a great eyeliner. I couldn't have been more wrong: It wears like glossy enamel paint and it only gets worse throughout the day: It cracks,chips and here's the best part- You have to chisel it off with a cotton swab to remove it! Avoid at ANY cost!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Used to be great, but now not so much I had used this eyeliner for many years, and loved the grey - it was not so harsh as the darker colors, and I never had a problem with it. Now the only options are brown or black, both of which are too dark, and it doesn't work as well. Plus, it flakes/peels off frequently when mascara is applied. I had stocked up on the grey when it started disappearing from stores, but eventually had to settle for brown for my last purchase(s). Now I need to find a different eyeliner.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Plastic I have been using the product for a few years. Same exact one. Same color, same place to buy. I bought one and thought it was defective because it was super super shiny, it peeled off, I had to scrape it off my eyes to come off. Just not the same thing at all. I bought two more bottles and they were all the same. I've painted my skin with acrylic paint before, with arts or with kids arts and the eyeliner felt and looked exactly the same as the acrylic paint. What gives?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst eyeliner I've ever bought. To start off, the brush is nothing like the tapered brush it shows on the package. It is thin, straight and not good. Second, I bought a black liner not a chunky transparent grey liner. I'm actually pretty upset I wasted my money on this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Helpless I have gone to 10 different stores, from dept. stores to pharmacies and each one I buy come out clumped. I've opened close to 35 packages and still can't find one that is smooth. I thought it might have been discontinued. I've used it for many years and hate all the others I've tried. I feel helpless trying to find something with a brush that can do the job this one does. It is my go to in everything, especially halloween. If I find a working formula, I would rate 5 stars and recommend as I always have.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from dries up I have used this product for years without issues. But as of the last 3 or 4 purchases it has been problematic and doesn't last very long. This time the entire insert came out. How does that happen. I think they need to readdress this product. For all the people who like to use it improve the quality back to where it was. Or date it so we can see if it has been on the shelf too long and we can avoid buying it. The stores will not take it back once it is use obviously. So, we are just wasting our money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Different This used to be my go to eyeliner for right under the waterline. It would stay on for days! I switched for a while to crayon on the waterline. When I went back to the liquid it kept flaking off throughout the day . I checked the container and it said waterproof but it was terrible. I will look for another product. Must have changed the ingredients :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Formula change I've been using this eyeliner for years and recently the formula has become to watery! I bought 5 more bottles to make sure it wasn't just that one bottle but all 5 of them are the same watery stuff ! Please bring back the old formula! Now I have to look for another eyeliner... sorry maybelline you just lost a loyal customer :/

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bad Eyeliner but Great Alternative For Tooth Black the negative reviews re: cracking and peeling are totally true when used as an eyeliner etc. etc. i don't really care This is the perfect eyeliner to use as a tooth black for SFX/Halloween/Cosplay makeup. Tasteless and non-toxic, dries well on cleaned teeth, and this sucker can stay on your teeth for a full day—even through drinks and meals—until you scrub it off with a toothbrush at night. Have used this on several occasions for to give a sharp-toothed illusion for costumes because prosthetics weren't working with my mouth, and I got compliments on them every time!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ultra liner-waterproof-black color I've been using this product about 20 years.. I LOVED it until recently. .. the formula is either watery, it applies horrible. .. and the brushes suck..the past 6 months I've noticed it.. I go thru one bottle a month and I had to buy mutiple products thinking it was a bad lot... but I see that's not the case... I want to continue to use your product. .. I'm loyal to what I love, but I'm not feeling this at all... Any help or suggestions would be appreciated..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ultra Liner now flakes off I have been using this product for many years. It now flakes off and is certainly not waterproof. I threw it away thinking it may have been too old even though the product wasn't dried up. I bought a new one and the same thing happened. When I was out with my sister she got the flakes from it under her contacts. That's how I found out she was having the same issues with Ultra Liner. Obviously the formula was changed. Why when it had been such a great product?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only eyeliner that ever worked. Let's be real. You can't expect eye liner of any brand to last without eye primer. I'm surprised by some of the reviews because this is absolutely the best eyeliner I have ever used. It's pigmented and lasts forever (I know this is terribly bad for my skin, but I fall asleep with it and it lasts through the morning of). It doesn't smudge and is the best liner that I have ever used. I have been using it for about 10 years and don't plan on changing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DIssapointed. Not dark enough. Bought this eyeliner because the one I usually get was not available at the store. Once I began to use it, the liquid was not dark enough and I have trouble putting it on as it was not staying on. Will not buy again.Waste of my money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from What happened? This is no longer waterproof Everyone always remembers me because of my eyes. I have used this eyeliner for so many years. I used to even wear it to the beach and could snorkel all day with it still on. Now, I can't get through applying it to one eye before the other runs down my face. It is no longer waterproof. It can't even last long enough to do both eyes. It also makes my eyes water now. There is no way to get a good line anymore either, which I attribute to shorter brush hairs and cheaper ones, as well as a worse formula. This is heartbreaking for me, and the only makeup I wear.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I wish it would work When applying the eye liner it was too light, I had to apply at least three coats. Within two hours it started to flake. I wish it would work properly. I love the smooth brush and the ease of applying it. Please fix it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed This is one of the worst eyeliners I have ever used. It flakes and peals off in just a few hours- not "all day wear" like it states on the package. I have black speaks all over my face whenever I wear it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from New Package Less Quality I noticed recently that my beloved eyeliner has new packaging which wouldn't be an issue but it seems the formula has some how changed as well because it goes on not as thick as the old blue packaging :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I have watery eyes and have been looking for an eyeliner that will stay on. I like Maybelline products but this liner failed. It peels and flakes and is difficult to apply.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 2 defective containers When unscrewing the cap, the inside rubber plug detaches and is stuck inside the top. Its a mess. Two full tubes in the trash.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad. It looks more blue than black, it literally peels off, gets thick and goopy after it's only been opened a few days.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flaky & Gooey AF I literally just bought this last week and it is the worst purchase I have ever made for a liquid eyeliner. The formula is like goo and does not apply nicely at all. Not only that it is flaky af and refused to come off with makeup remover. Even worse the bottle is already damaged. They clearly did not manufacture this correctly. I do recommend this and will NEVER buy this again. Not even worth a ★

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What the heck happened????? I have bought this eyeliner for 30 years and never ever had a problem with it lasting all day. Now it doesn't last 4 hours on my eyes till it starts to chip away on my eye lids. I find my self picking it away at the red lights while I am driving. Because it's breaking up. Will be researching a dependable eyeliner. Sorry to let this product go but have to move on.

I used this eyeliner in my high school years & the 90's because it was the VERY best eyeliner on the market. It stayed on no matter what. However, I discontinued using it in the late 90's because you changed the formula. Would crack & peel & I hate it.

Hi, Back in the 60's I used to use a black,glossy (shiny) "pearly" eyeliner. It came in a short squarish glass (?) bottle. This was fantastic. Any possibilities that something like this will be brought back? TU, Gail P.S. The brush was in the lid.

Asked by: Maui
Unless it's the old original liquid eyeliner with the colored top, it won't be worth a darn.
