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

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as good as it used to be When the formula changed a few years back it no longer bacame truly waterproof. It cracks and peels. I have very oily skin the old formula could withstand my oily skin. I've been using this product for since the 80's and it no longer lives up to its standard. By the end of the day it has already cracking and peeling

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ultra Liner I grew up in the 1980's when we had big hair lots of eyeliner, which the only eyeliner us girls who hung out would wear was ultra liner but the white container, many years ago I noticed Maybelline changed the container to silver and it still read waterproof liquid, but the product was no longer matte and my eyes have wrinkles on the edges which caused this new ultra liner to crack and peel. I then stopped wearing liquid eyeliner hoping one day the white ultra liner would come back. From time to time I try and find a liquid eyeliner like the ultra liner white container which I have yet to find. I finally have had it and decided to ask if you can please bring the old ultra waterproof liquid eyeliner in the white container back. I guarantee that product will sell it was the best liquid eyeliner I have ever used and I'm now 47, please bring it back or at least for a few years so I can stock up. That stood up to it's name it was matte waterproof liquid and waterproof it was, not even soap and water can take it off, we had to use cream to take it off but it was the best then and it will be the best eyeliner now.. Please bring old white container Ultra Liner waterproof Liquid eyeliner, I beg you..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No match for Stiletto I love the Stiletto eye liner, but I had to go out of town for a funeral, needed new liner, and this was all Walmart had. I really regret this purchase and will be tossing it out. Flakes, hard to put on, comes off in chunks. Never again, back to stiletto!

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 It's changed! Something has changed! I have used this product since I was 16, now 50. The last 2 years I struggle with it horribly! The brush tip is always different, either to flimsy, to short, has a couple long hairs too long that need cut off, and this one is has thick-non bending bristles. It clumps in the bottle and on the brush stem, way quick. I have to buy new way more often. I'm currently on the search for a replacement product! It's not working anymore after 34 years.

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 Too bad, this WAS a great product! I used to love this product. Rather hard to find a store that keeps these in stock where I shop, so when I find them I buy a few. Last week I bought four at a local Publix store. To my horror all four were empty. I threw away my receipt so I couldn't return them. Sorry Maybelline, I won't be buying anymore of your products!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I remember it being better I habitually wear winged eyeliner as daily makeup, and I remember this particular eyeliner as being a favorite of mine in high school. Be it makeup quality or just change in preference, something has changed for me. The brush is small and flimsy, not good for precision. And if you mess up, the quick drying formula makes it difficult to get off without irritating the skin. Once the product is fully dry, it pulls into itself and looks creased on your upper eye lid, exaggerating lines you may have. While this product is meant to withstand water, over the course of the day you can expect bits to flake off without even touching. Very disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to apply First time user; the other brand I have used for years recently has had issues with the container. Happy to find this one.

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 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 2 out of 5 by from Love / hate relationship I have used this product for 15+ years. I love the fact that it goes on smoothly, I can get a defined line, and it doesn't melt onto my lower lid. I hate that the packaging seems to be of cheaper quality than before (I've had 2 wands break off in the tube and several with widely varying brush lengths and thicknesses) and the product does seem to flake more easily now (not sure if that's my age or product issue).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Maybe the worst ever! Flaked off as soon as it dried. Hopefully I can take it back. Do not waste your money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful What a waste of money. I wish I would have read reviews before I purchased. Came on very light and smudgey. So disappointed.

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 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 1 out of 5 by from Formula is different! I've been using Ultra liner for 10 years and never had a problem until now. I just purchased a new tube and it's super watery and hardly pigmented. I'm afraid that if I go and buy another one, it'll be the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it but too hard to find !! I have been using this product since it came in glass (40+ years!). Brown for day, black at night. However, I have so much trouble finding the brown in stores!! I have tried others but this one has always worked for me. After all these years I would consider myself a loyal customer. Help me buy the products I love in the stores I shop!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product but… Amazing product but…I have been using this product for literally decades. It is the best waterproof liquid eyeliner out there! However, they have discontinued the taupe Color which was a light brown and perfect for us blondes who desire a softer look. Please, please, please re-issue the taupe option!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love the brush and formula I love this liquid eyeliner. The brush allows me to get as close to my lash line as possible without putting any extra product, also it lets me create the most perfect winged lashes. I've been using this for a few years now. Love that I can wear it for the summer time through my sweat and face oil, but yet still easy to remove.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from UGH...WHAT HAPPENED?? I’m not sure what happened to this product, but it is a disaster! The bottle that it comes in is now so cheap, that when you open the product, the inside portion of the container comes out and creates a giant mess (not to mention that it wastes a good portion of the actual eyeliner). Black seems to be the only color available these days – the lighter colors would be welcomed back by many. And the texture seems to have changed. It is very flaky. It seems nearly impossible to create a clean line along the lashes (perhaps that has to do with the poorly designed bottle?). It always seems to look clumpy. The eyeliner used to be sold with a cap and the brush/cap on the side…about the time the packaging changed is when I noticed a huge decline in quality.

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 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 New formula? I've been using this eyeliner for over 6 years, and the last two bottles I've bought are 100% different. No opacity and the brush is actually pulling off what's already on my lid when I try to fill it in. What is the deal? I absolutely adore this product and I'm so sad to see the quality slip so drastically. Need to find a new go to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from eyeliner I have been using Ultra Liner waterproof since i was 16. I am 66 now and I am looking for the slate color, or charcoal. When you get my age you don't need to use black because it is harsh looking. Can you tell me where I can find it to buy?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Watery - which is ironic since it's waterproof... You say the formula hasn't changed but believe us, it has! The thick black I came to know and love is now a watery grey. The brown actually goes on darker than the black now. If there in fact has been no change in the formula, is there another factor that could be making this happen?

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.
