I have been on the hunt for a great vegan liquid liner for a very long time. When I found out that the Milani Eye Tech Liquid Eyeliner was not only cruelty free but also vegan, I couldn’t wait to give it a try. The reviews that I had read online were pretty good and it’s an affordable liner. The product description combined with reviews made me hope that my search for a great vegan liquid liner would soon be over.
Claims: “Low-maintenance liquid eyeliner – basically, it’s a dream come true. This genius-y felt-tip tool delivers all the drama, precision and longwear of a liquid in a compact, pen format that’s a breeze to use. It’s water-resistant, smudge-proof and doesn’t skip or pull. We’re talking love at first line.“

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Propylene Glycol, Laureth-4, PVP, Phenoxyethanol, PEG-8 Dimethicone, Methylparaben, Trisodium EDTA, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Iron Oxide (CI 77499). +/- May Contain: Ultramarines (CI 77007), Black 2 (CI 77266), Iron Oxide (CI 77491, CI 77492).
Pros: Portable size. Available in black and brown. Rich color. Cruelty free brand. Vegan formula.
Cons: The liner tip does not wear well over time.
The Verdict: When I first tried the Milani Eye Tech Liquid Eyeliner I really liked it. Thanks to the felt tip and pen size tube, it was really easy to use. I bought it in black and loved how rich and dark the color was. It dried quickly and wore really well. I was really happy with it! However, the more I used this liner the less consistent the application became. While at first the tip provided a very smooth, even, and consistent liner application over time the application became trickier and trickier. I stored the liner horizontally as suggested by the brand. After a couple weeks, it was no longer possible to get a fine and precise line. There were skips and changes in the color that applied (some spots were very rich and others light).
I do think that the Milani Eye Tech Liquid Eyeliner is a great liner for those who are new to liner because it lets you get really close to your eye. It’s also a great size for those who travel frequently. However, I don’t think that this is a great liner for those looking for a black liquid liner to use everyday.
