Beauty Review: Ulta Automatic Eye Liner

The Budget Beauty Babe finds an eye liner that stays put, no matter where your mood swings might take you. —BB

I must admit that I am usually biased against store-brand anything. This applies to makeup, as well as my cereal. But, for the sake of being fair (and following my success with Ulta brand nail polish) I decided to try out Ulta’s Automatic Eye Liner. All I can say is, I feel so stupid for waiting so long to try it! This stuff is just fantastic. It's automatic (always a plus, no sharpening), long-lasting (it seems to be smudge-proof even on the lower lid, which is an amazing feat in and of itself--I even tried rubbing it and nothing showed up on my finger!) and waterproof (good for those of us who watch too much Oprah and cry all the time). I picked up classic black, a lovely shade of teal blue, and raisin, a deep purple color that is an exciting addition to any fall makeup palette. After this eye-opening experience, I'll never doubt store brands again.

Thanks for the review! I've tried other automatic eyeliner pencils, but they still smudge all over by the end of the day, and I'm tired of it! That this is from ULTA, too, is great, because in my monthly InStyle magazine there always seems to be a $5 coupon off any purchase of $10 or more.

I used this in the past and loved it for its ability to stay put on my waterline. I've been out of it for a couple of months and I don't know why I've hesitated to repurchase. Thanks for the post!

I've been needing a new eyeliner actually. I'm so sick of sharpneing mine since it doesn't even sharpen CORRECTLY. Plus it still smudges even if it says that it's smude-proof or waterproof. Thanks for this review. I'll probably pick one up too!
