Product Review: Revlon's Line Fantasy Cream Eyeliner


2 out of 5
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Overall: 3 out of 5
Would I re-purchase? No
Price: $10, Walgreens

I first introduced this product a few posts ago, and finally tried it a few days ago...I wasn't happy with it. First of all, I have been using MAC Fluidlines, Revlon's Colorstay Eyeliners (both pencil and liquid form), and Indelible Gel Eyeliners from Mad Minerals, and NONE of them are TOO creamy in the sense that it's hard to apply in one motion, nor do they crease like crazy.

Many of you have asked what my favorite eyeliner is and I really don't have one, it really just depends on what I feel like using that day, if I am in a hurry, Revlon's Liquid Eyeliner does the trick and stays on without flaking, I love the smooth and lasting application (as well as how long it lasts for a tiny jar!) of the MAC Fluidlines. The Indelible Gel Eyeliners are a great alternative to the MAC Fluidlines, however they are SUPER tiny and they dry out really fast.

In terms of preventing smudging (another frequently asked question), you can try powdering your lower lashline to absorb oil and then lining your eyes. I like to just line my waterline or line my lower lash line and smudging it on purpose for a soft smokey look. An eyeliner sealant also seals the deal to help make it last longer and prevent a lot of smudging.

I tried applying the Revlon cream eyeliner like you normally would with any cream or gel eyeliner; first with the tiny brush it came with (which also sucked), so then I used my own eyeliner brush and I had to apply it like 5 times to even get an even amount of color because it was streaking across my lashline. It also didn't dry as fast as other gel eyeliners such as the Fluidlines. (I have NOT tried L'Oreal's HIP eyeliners, so I wouldn't know how they compare).

I then tried it with Silk Naturals's Eyeliner Sealant, and it seemed to do the trick and made it stay without creasing.

PROS: Using this with an eyeliner sealant makes it a cream eyeliner you can work with, it's inexpensive and comes in brown, purple, black, and blue. Available at drugstores that carry brand new product collections.

CONS: Creased like crazy for me and I don't have oily eyelids either! Takes a few applications to get an even pigmented line.

Overall: I am so accustomed to how well other eyeliner perform, such as the Fluidlines, Indelible Gel Eyeliners, and even Revlon's other line of eyeliners, their colorstay eyeliner pencils or liquid eyeliners work really well. However, I would not re-purchase this as I would rather just get something else that I don't have to struggle with to stay on or give me a continuous even line of color.

I oftentimes think my Fluidline was one of the best cosmetic investments I've ever made. I also really like mixing mineral shadows with mixing medium to make my own liquid liners... that way I can have all the colors of the rainbow!

Thanks for the review, I was about to purchase this cream eyeliner too. I guess I'll stay with MAC fluidlines.

i never saw this product here in malaysia. currently i'm using bobbi brown gel eyeliner. so far it's working well on me although in the begining it was difficult for me to apply (i have a shaky hand.. hehe). have u ever tried this one?

Lani said...

aww. you would think these would work so well considering that their sibling liners work really good. lol. well thanks for the review. ;)

Thanks for the review. I use the loreal hip gel liners. I like them but I haven't tried mac fluidlines yet. I was in Ulta the other day and Jane products now have gel liners.

Which one is your favorite NKOTB? Back in the day, I kinda jumped between Jordan and Jonathan. Now I think Donnie's looking kinda hot. Lol. I guess cause he's in all those movies these days! And Danny...I used to think he looked like a monkey when I was little, but he's looking kinda good, too! Lol. Yeah, I totally feel like I'm 9!

thanks for the review! good thing i didn't buy it. i really like the indelible gel eyeliner. you mentioned in your post that they dry out fast. i've had mine for a while, and it's still good.

Thanks for sharing. I use the L'Oreal HIP Truth Cream eyeliner in black and it is good. Don't use the brush that it comes with though-I use my own.

thanks for your review - I think I'll stick with the HIP liners; they have a creamy texture and I haven't had any issues with them creasing/drying out/streaking when I use them. I don't have any fluidlines, so I can't really compare, but I think they work well, and if scored during a CVS BOGO sale, an even better deal :)

boo on revlon, lol. this reminds me of when i bought the cream eyeliner that's from the HIP line. it dried out really fast and wasn't really quite malleable at all. so boo on them too :D

well, that's a bummer. was hoping to find a good, cheap, drugsture alternative to the fluidline, but i guess the Indelibles are it.

btw, may i just say, your profile photo is SO SEXY

and thx for answering my q on Joppa :D
