This is absolutely one of the better eyeliners I've used, and I've used them all. I have this in the exotic plum and the black velvet. The eyeliner itself stays pretty well put and the coloring is descent. The plum is a nice combination of brown with some purple tones. It's very different and very pretty and if you mix it with the black, it's beautiful. The black isn't extremely dark, but it's passable. I've used every liner from wet & wild to Chanel to Lise Watier to Colorstay to Bobbie Brown - you name it, I've used it so to say that this will stay in my bag for regular use is saying a lot for the product. Perfect eyeliner would go on thick and strong and stay put all day long. I have yet to find that in ANY brand, but this is a close runner up and along w/my Lise Watier, I'll be using it regualrly. Hope that helps.
