Review Overview

Eye Liner is a very good, automatic, retractable pencil with a smooth application that is only slightly prone to smudging. It won't outlast the gel-based eyeliners from Stila or Bobbi Brown, but is a worthy contender if you prefer pencils. As claimed, this pencil is waterproof. In fact, it requires an oil- or silicone-based makeup remover to get it to come off completely.

Almay At-A-Glance

Strengths: An excellent assortment of mascaras; several exceptional foundation options to choose from; a phenomenal liquid eyeliner; a selection of good makeup removers.

Weaknesses: Some of the Intense i-color products do the exact opposite of enhancing eye color; mediocre blushes; “Smart Shade” products don’t automatically adapt to skin’s color as claimed.

Long a standby for those with sensitive skin seeking hypoallergenic products (though that term is unregulated and can be applied to any product, regardless of ingredients), Almay continues to refine its comprehensive makeup line. In early 2006 the company repackaged its old favorites, and also relaunched several new makeup items. Everything now has a sleek new look and color-coded packaging. We admit, the makeover is effective, not just product-wise but visually too.

Shopping this drugstore line is now much easier because of the clearly defined product and color family groupings. Lamentably, testers and trial sizes of the makeup are still scarce regardless of where you shop. Almay has always been a reliable line for foundations, powder, and mascara. Within its current lineup you'll find that remains true. Their foundations are better than ever, and still offer full, broad-spectrum sun protection and a mostly neutral palette. We also found their concealers and mascaras have improved, as have the pencil options. When it comes to shopping for makeup staples with state-of-the-art formulas, Almay has many winners, and some innovative surprises that its competitors would be wise to learn from.

A bargain for the pencil lovers out there

I agree with Paula's review--and would almost give it a "best" rating--3.5 out of 4 for product results for me. The only negative for me is that I'd like to be able to sharpen it to an even finer point for dotting between eyelashes effectively. There is an attached sharpener, but the creamy texture of the pencil makes it difficult to get a fine point without breaking off the tip--which I've done more than once :). The application is smooth, I've only found two colors but they are great!
