I love this product. Some people's seem to dry but mine is still amazingly soft. Sometimes I do wish it was a bit more gel-like, but its cream like it says. The pigmentation on this product is great and it never smudges or anything. Also, for those who say its expensive Stila smudge pots retail for $20 and MAC fluid lines have way less product.
I really like this eyeliner. I do not have a whole lot of experience with cream or gel eyeliners other than using the MAC fluidline a few times. This is a great alternative because it's much cheaper ($10-$12 approx.). I actually like the brush it comes with. It makes a very nice, clean, pretty line and gives you a very put together eye look.
I love this product! The ONLY cons I have is that it doesn't say on too too long, and it's hard to find. Other then that, it makes putting liquid liner on SO much easier. I highly recommend it.
Cons: The brush is awful. Its expensive for a drugstore product. Takes a while to dry.
On the positive side this is an excellent eyeliner. Its easy to manipulate. The color is opaque and lasts for hours. LOreal hip cream liners don't dry out as fast as others I have used.
I really like this eyeliner, I have never tried any other brand so I cannot compair it to other gel or cream. It comes with a little eyeliner brush to apply it but I found that the little hairs were too hard and scratchy so I picked one up from Sephora and it worked like a charm. It's very black and very creamy for a smooth application with no tugging on the lid. BUT it dries out rather quickly. I actually use a pencil liner almost everyday but occasionally reach for this (I also own the purple and brown) I do not think it's worth the 12 something dollars when you get a 1/4 of the use. Whether I use it everyday or once or twice a week it should still be creamy if the lid is tight. I probably will not repurchase since Mac's blacktrack is darn near the same price and I haven't heard of it drying up with less than a 1/4 usage.
This eyeliner is one of the worst eyeliners I've ever used in my life. I wanted to try a different kind of eyeliner (was using liquid eyeliner before buying this) so I went and bought this cream eyeliner right when it came out last year. This eyeliner came with a tiny brush...which sucked. Eyeliner was easy to apply (using a different brush of course) but it would smear immediately right after! It refused to stay on my lids and smeared underneath my eyes--I didn't even line my bottom lid! 1 lippie for being highly pigmented.
Finally, an eyeliner that doesn't budge the entire day. This is the first eyeliner I've ever used that doesn't give me terrible raccoon eyes by the end of the day. I even went running without removing it yesterday, and it barely budged. It's not the cheapest drugstore eyeliner out there, but it's definitely worth the money.
-Long Lasting Wear
-Color stays consistent
-easy to apply, meaning i don't have to rub the eye
-They finally changed the brush, it's much softer
-There is a lot of product for your buck
-Doesn't dry instantly, so wait a while
-It will smear, so if you have oily lids, be careful
-The brush is softer, but it's harder to handle, I advise using your own.
Overall, I like this product, it's great for a drug store brand.
This is my first cream eyeliner and so far I love it! The color is very opaque and it goes on smoothly. Like other have mentioned the brush it comes with is completely horrible. It's so rough I can't imagine using it regularly. Buy this eyeliner just don't bother trying to use the brush.
Pros: extremely opaque, matte finish (even though some reviewers said it was glossy- this is NOT glossy at all- I have purchased 3 of these, so I would have noticed that), very long wearing, stays fairly moist in the pot as long as you don't keep it uncovered for long periods of time
Cons: not AS easy to work with/ budge as other cream/ gel liners, crappy brush that comes with it (though I already have a brush I use for gel liners anyways)- so not a big deal, price for d/s brand (almost as much as Fluidline by MAC)
I recently purchased Bare Escentuals Buxom Lashliner and that's what I have been using since. The one thing I miss about L'Oreal that Buxom doesn't offer, is the opacity.
