Product Review | Benefit Push Up Liner

I was very excited to hear that Benefit was creating a new liner earlier this year. I have used the same CoverGirl Liner since I can remember, but it just doesn't last long enough for me. I read several reviews about the Push Up Liner and decided I needed to take stab at it.

Many of the reviews out there say that it's clumpy, and hard to use. The lovely sales associate at Sephora gave me a quick demo on how to prevent those problems. I'm very glad she did because I absolutely love this liner.

One very important thing she told me is to use it like a pen/pencil, not a brush. I think that's where many beauty buffs out there are going wrong. I have never been keen on brush on liners, so it was rather easy for me transition.

When you first open it, it needs to be turned about 8-10 full clicks before the liner is at the tip and ready to go. 2-3 clicks is perfect for each stroke on each eye. If you want a bold line, click it - apply it - click it - apply it until you have the desired thickness.

I learned the hard way not to click it too many times, otherwise you'll end up with a waste of product and several clumps.

My favorite feature of this liner is its builability. It's fantastic for very thin lines that give you natural looking definition. It can also be easily broadened for a bold eye that will look fabulous for a night on the town. Here is how I wear it on a daily basis.
au natural
One thin line without mascara or eyeshadow
+ mascara and Naked 2 palette

Ta da!
It also stays much better than the other liners I have tried. One thing I've read is it's too hard to remove. Again, I have to disagree. I always use coconut oil to remove my makeup as most makeup remover cloths are extremely harsh on my sensitive skin. Just rub a pea size amount of coconut oil on each eye, let it sit for a minute and wipe off with a Kleenex! It's also a great way to remove They're Real mascara (but it may take a little longer).


  1. Thank you so much for this review - i've been on the fence with trying it - but I think i'm going to keep it on the must buy list!

  2. loving this review! i usually don't invest in the more expensive eyeliners, but this seems worth it!

  3. I just saw this in an Ulta advertisement and was wondering if it was as good as they claimed! It looks great on your eyes...I'm going to have to check it out!

  4. I love benefit products! My favorite is the "They're Real" mascara! It's perfect! I'll have to try this one next!
