Almost HG? - Review: Physician's Formula Eye Booster liquid eyeliner

I actually took pictures for a rub test but there was virtually no difference...

I think it's ridiculous they use mascara-ed lashes to show the results, this could easily be faked with more mascara... And you can see the clumps! 

It might seem like it smudged a bit on the outer corner, but that's actually a plummy L'Oreal pencil liner I added in an attempt to fill in the gap in the outer of my eye, sorry!

- Long wearing
- No smudging
- Line could be very thin or thick
- Easy to remove with cleanser

- Black is not super pigmented
- Pricey for drugstore
- Didn't see significant growth in lashes

$9-11 for 0.016 oz / 0.5 ml
I paid $9.68 + tax at Target

UPDATE (8/20/12):
I've noticed that I have more lashes when I curl them now, and possibly a teensy bit longer?

Having used this almost everyday for the past month, I am very impressed with this liquid liner. I purchased it knowing that it wouldn't be super pigmented (from all the reviews I've read), but figured it's technically better for my lashline than some other liners. 

This is the most long wearing liner I have tried. I actually wore this to a water rafting trip and there were no smudges, completely different from the liquid liners I've tried in the past (Revlon ColorStay, Prestige)
I also appreciate how the brush tip can give you a super thin line. Like most liquid liners the application takes some getting used to, but this might be my staple eyeliner for a while until I find another one that doesn't smudge at all. From my experience, the color does fade a little throughout a long day, but you don't see a trace of it on your undereye, which I am super impressed with because I have yet to find an eyeliner or mascara that doesn't smudge on my outer undereye area.

The even crazier thing is this removes easily with facial cleanser, I've either been using Philosophy Purity or Neutrogena Naturals makeup removing cleanser to wash off my makeup. I am so impressed with the lasting power that I'm looking over the price and its promise for your lashes to grow.

When it comes down to it, whether you like the liner or not depends on what you're looking for. If you want your lashes to grow longer, I wouldn't recommend it, but if you want a long-wearing liners you can wear without worrying about it throughout the day, I would say this is totally worth trying.
