Milani Blue Liquif'Eye Automatic Pencil

Milani Blue Liquif’Eye Liquid Like Automatic Propel Pencil

Milani Blue Liquif’Eye Automatic Pencil ($7.99 for 0.01 oz.) is a medium-dark navy blue with silver and blue micro-glitter. It has decent color payoff in a single pass, but it really needs to be layered in order to achieve a rich, opaque line of color. It has a slightly drier texture, though it doesn’t overly tug at the lash line when applied. The color reminded me of tokidoki Skeletro, which is slightly darker.

I tested this on the lower lash line, and while it dries down easily and seems smudge-proof when swatched on my arm, it wasn’t quite as foolproof once applied. It wore for around six hours with minor smudging, but the fading and smudging was more than noticeable after eight hours. I didn’t and wouldn’t test this on the water line due to the micro-glitter particles. It’s not the worst performing eyeliner I’ve tried, but it’s definitely not one I’d grab when there are so many high performing eyeliners on the market. For example, Milani’s Liquif’Eye Pencil formula is excellent and wears much better.

  1. This is such a pretty colour x

    What happened to the “love it or leave it” buttons, Christine?

  3. Thank you for this post. I was eyeing these automatic pencils in CVS, the other day. I am going to skip them and pick up a couple of the Liqui’Eye pencils, instead.

  4. I almost never disagree with you, but I LOVE this liner in Purple. The color looks so awesome with my brown eyes. But then again, if liner smudges a bit on me, I never mind.

  5. Well, dang. :D I prefer auto pencils to the ones you have to sharpen in general, so I was hoping this line would be good – like Revlon Colorstay liners, but in Milani colors. Oh, well – at least their other pencils are good!

  6. Darnit! That color is so pretty but doesn’t sound really worth it.

  7. I am so glad you did a review on this because I was sure about to buy it! I have all of the pencil form Liquif’Eyes (which I only bought because I saw them reviewed here!) and they are really great. Thanks for the heads-up!

    Just to clarify, was it the formula or this specific color that was so luckluster?

    I hate pencil liners and was hoping maybe their auto-pencils would be better but i think I’ll just pick up their liquid liners instead. And/or continue to research their other products. Thanks so much for the review!

    • I’ve only tried this shade, so it was both. Even if the color only had poor color payoff, the formula shouldn’t have smudged, faded, etc. Smudging/fading is typically because of the formula, whereas the color payoff may be more specific to a particular shade.

    I am one of the few who has not been able to enjoy the regular form of this pencil because it destroys my contacts by leaving a film all over it. Any word on if these pencils are any better for contacts??

    Are you sure you meant D+?

      I was confused, too. Back when I was in school, 60-69% would have been C, not D. But I guess Christine is a tough marker! And why not be tough; I think we all appreciate that she will only give top marks to great products, right? :)

      • Did you go to a U.S. school or something else? Because the U.S. grading system at every institution I have been at has been Below 60% = F, 60-69% = D range, 70-79 = C range, 80-89 = B range, and 90-100 = A range. This is a U.S. based blog, the rating system I use is based off of the U.S. system.

  11. Cherokee

    I agree with the D+ rating. I had the green which might have been limited edition not sure. I used it once and liked it. I wanted to use it again and it was dried out and hard. I had to throw it away.

    I was eyeing this in Target the other day (in green) and wanted to go back and buy it, but now I know that it’s not so great. I do have the silver pencil version and I love that one!

  13. What a lovely colour! Too bad it’s not worth trying.
