This liner is perfect for creating a variety of effects, from a fine line to lid-covering color. Whether your go thick, thin, smudged, or smoky, your look will last, from day to night.
I had been looking for a black waterproof gel liner forever and finally one day it dawned on me that i never checked Sephora. I walked inside and found this and fell in love the minute I tried it on. I don't understand the reviews with people having smudging for creasing or running...my left eye has always given me trouble with liner, especially in the lover corner because I have a little extra indention on that eye and it says put. I never have to touch it up, once its on, its on. Maybe because I use two primers with my eye makeup also but I love this stuff. Gives me the best cat eye and super winged liner. Love this stuff, for ten bucks its a god send.
I use this in the black color every day. Its my go-to black gel liner for my top lid. I do a wing every day and this liner is very creamy and smooth. Its water proof so it doesn't smear or fade through out the day. At only $10 its a real deal! :]
I've only been using gel liner for about a year and a half and I found that because I used it every day, sometimes more than once, it could get a bit expensive. I tried one liner from Target that was $18 (I don't even remember the brand) and it was terrible. It dried out after two months and the black varied in the thickness. Then, I tried MAC's Fluidline, which was $15 and worked really well. It didn't dry out and gave me exactly what I was looking for. However, it was still a bit expensive. I then tried an $8 drugstore liner that was terrible and dried out in less than a month. I found Sephora's cream liner and went nuts for it! It's only $10, doesn't dry out, goes on smoothly, and gives great color. Love this product.
I really LOVE this liner... I bought it in a turqouise color and paired it with a really cute fuschia colored lipstick. It lasted all night and I didn't even have to touch it up. Will definitely buy again in another color :0)
I have this in three colors (green, purple, and basic black) and absolutely love it! I apply it with a thin pointed liner brush (the Sephora #17) to my upper lashline and waterline, and it stays until I remove it.
after reading the previous two reviews i was really surprised, because this eyeliner works great for me. i have it in black, brown, metallic purple, and metallic blue-gray. i don't use a traditional angled eyeliner brush to apply it though. i use a really small smudge brush that i got from sonia kashuk for target a while back and it works wonderfully. i always wing it out in the corner, and sometimes i'll smudge it with an eyeshadow, or leave it defined and dramatic. the only time when it's smudged before is when i put it on my lower lashline without smudging an eyeshadow on top of it to set it.
It's a lot for such a little price . I've noticed that after a while, it starts to fade, but maybe it's just me? I don't know, but I like it ^_^
In general, I love this. It was thick and creamy when I bought it, and in 2 years, it's only gotten a little bit stickier. Also, I've had it for 2 years, so $10 was a great investment! The finish is satiny and smooth and yes, can be smoky. BUT. I've noticed that if I put on primer, then nude shadow, then this, and walk out the door on a humid day, it will be in my creases within 3 or 4 hours. I have oily eyelids, but they're not THAT oily. But again, for $10...a great investment.
I bought this in the Deep End (described by Sephora as a "matte cobalt blue") for a very specific purpose: I recently dyed my hair bright violet-blue and needed a new, long-lasting product to fill in my brows. I apply with an angled brush, and with just a few swipes it creates smooth, vibrant lines. It dries quickly, but still leaves time to clean up any smudges or accidents that may have occurred during application.
I did, however, attempt to use it as an eyeliner and was not impressed. Using the same angled brush, I had a difficult time creating even, bold lines, instead left with lines of varied weight with significant "gaps" in colour. I also felt as if it smudged by the end of the day, which is a little strange considering I never touch my eyes, and I have particularly dry eyes and normal lids.
But as I said above, it's great for my brows. If you need a brow filler and happen to need any of these colours, it's a great deal.
Initially, I was unimpressed with this liner. It doesn't go on as smoothly as some of my other cream liners and it didn't last very long. When I applied it with multiple strokes of the product across my lashline it did last longer, but that made it smudge more.
While I like it now, it did take several uses for me to get to this point. Not sure if I'd buy it again.
