Milani Liquif’Eye Metallic Eyeliner pencil in Black

Review for Milani Liquif’Eye Metallic Eyeliner pencil in Black

Hey hey! Today I’m reviewing a cheap and good pencil eyeliner which is Milani liquif’eye pencil eyeliner. I also featured it in my recent haul. This pencil eyeliner is climbing rapidly to fame with famous youtubers such as Xteeener and many others raving about this product. It is sadly not available in Singapore but you can get your hands on it through Cherry Culture, Drugstore and more.

Many says that they are dupes of Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-on-Eye pencil eyeliners and MakeUpForEver’s Aqua Eyes Waterproof pencil eyeliners. I’ve seen reviews on the UB and MUFE pencil eyeliners and surprisingly many were quite negative, so I didn’t get them also considering that they cost a whopping 30-40 sg bucks!

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on-Eye: 3.6 on Makeupalley (US$18)

MUFE Aqua Eyes: 3.5 on Makeupalley (US$18)

Milani Liquif’Eye Metallic: 4.1 on Makeupalley (US$6-7 depending where you get them)


Extremely smooth eye pencil with the application and feel of a liquid liner that delivers true color payoff, in a metallic finish with a long-lasting wear.


It is extremely creamy! I would say that it is creamier than MAC’s Smolder and Revlon’s Matte pencil eyeliner. Glides on so smoothly on the eye and I do not need to tug my eyelids. It is so opaque, definitely comparable to MAC’s Smolder. The pencil eyeliner is ‘normal sized’, meaning that it should fit in most sharpeners and you do not need to buy a separate one. 

The best part of the pencil eyeliner? The lasting power. The lasting power is fabulous! It does not vanish totally or smudge crazily and really stays put. I swear to god I have the oiliest lids in the whole wide world and nothing stays on my lids without a primer on. MAC’s black track fluidline smudges on me, Maybelline studio one smudges like crazy; MAC’s smolder vanishes within an hour, Revlon colourstay liquid liner and Kate Kanebo gel liner smudges and fades too.

I wouldn’t say the lasting power is comparable to a gel liner because it isn’t but the milani liquif’eye is definitely hands down the best pencil eyeliner I’ve used. 

So with that said I am really impressed by this pencil eyeliner. Pencil eyeliners usually smudges the fastest on me, often it vanishes 1-2 hours after application. Today I went short hiking (?) trekking (?) whatever you call it with my older brother to get some sun and exercise and I wore this on my lids since we were only going for 2 hours. I sweated buckets under the hot sun and when I got home surprise surprise! It was still there!! 


As miraculous as it seems, it did smudge a little around the outer corners of my eyes. But I’m sure with a primer under, it will eliminate the smudging problem. I find it fades a little when dried but just layer another layer on top after the liner dries and it stays opaque.  

As shown in the swatch, I think it gives more of a matte finish compared to a metallic finish. I personally like mattes more so I don’t find it a problem.  

It gets blunt really really quickly due to the creaminess texture; therefore I find that I have to keep sharpening to achieve a winged eyeliner look. Sadly for peeps in Asia we can only get our hands on it online

The packaging is pretty ordinary, nothing out of the box I just find that the pencil liner scraps while capping if not careful. A good size for the price and very travel-friendly

Yadda yadda:

I paid around SGD$11 plus shipping. Net Weight: 0.04 OZ/ 1.2g. Will I repurchase? Yes! I will repurchase again and again unless I’ve found another great alternative. I highly recommend you guys to check it out, superb quality and lasting power. Any good eyeliners to recommend? Please do!
