i got this on sale for super cheap (actually, at a store called "dirt cheap", so it was worth it, but i don't think i would purchase it at full price. however, it's very creamy and easy to apply and smudge. i'm all about smudging my eyeliner, because then it covers up how uneven my lines really are. hehe.

This is hands down the most smudge proof, long lasting liner I have ever tried. I love the deep black color. It lasts all day without me having to use a primer. Also, I like to apply my liner right before curling my eyelashes, and most of them transfer onto my curler, but this one sets and does not transfer at all. If I know I'm going to be working late or need a liner that I won't have to touch up, I reach for this. I can even rub my eyes with this on, and it won't move. It is thicker/wider than most liners, but that doesn't bother me because I normally like to draw on a thick line anyway. It does need frequent sharpening. I hope they did not discontinue this, like I read in another review, because I would like to get more colors.

I use this as a base under dark eyeshadows. This is extremely waterproof and smudge proof. Seriously, you can vigorously rub your eyes all you want -- this goes nowhere. That said, this isn't very blendable. You have to work very quickly and even then it's difficult to get a smooth transition. The fat tip of this doesn't make it very suitable for eyeliner unless you use a separate brush. Regardless of these drawbacks, I still love this cream stick for its serious staying power.

this product really does not move and is best used for waterproof mu for beach, or for water photog... the only way to use this is with a fine brush which you use on the tip and pick up color.. if you try to use this from the tube you get a messy line.
use a brush.

I hate the texture of this product! I expected it to be like MAC shadesticks but this one wasn't as creamy or blendable. Shadesticks usually can be blended out before they set, but this crayon was impossible to blend out or smudge leaving me with a patchy uneven line on my eyelids. It really does not budge. I got it at full price when it was $10 and it definitely isn't worth that. I would prefer a crayon that I can blend out then set with shadow, like the wet n wild shadow sticks. Also, the packaging requires that you wind the pencil down all the way before putting on the cap, otherwise it crushes the tip! Other eyeliners and crayons (revlon colorstay, mac shadesticks) leave space in the cap for the tip). This was a disappointment.

I discovered this right when they discontinued it. I'm sad, it's become my favorite black liner beating out UD Zero, MUFE and Shu. It has the best staying power of any e/l I've ever used and I have quite a few over the years. This stuff lasts at least 12 hours on my very oily lids. It really is fabulous, the only drawback was the pencil is a bit too wide and hard to maneuver into the corners of your eye. Other than that it was the perfect black e/l at a very reasonable price.

I heard they just discontinued this item. So I ran out to my local CVS to check it out before I could not longer find this. I did not quite the great deal as the review below me but I did get it for 50% off. There was no indication on the display that this was going to be discontinued but I happened to know it is because I visited the L'Oreal USA website.
First off this liner is a lot thicker than normal liners. It goes on very black. I think this liner would be great for your top lid of trying to create a smokey eye. I love it so far. It also does not seem to smudge. I'll post an update if I encounter any problems along the way.
It started to irritate my lid and so I stopped using it. Another problem I encountered was that it resisted application so the line would not be very smooth. It would always skip on my lid which kind of pulled it. I won't be repurchasing. Though i think its been discontinued anyway.

Got this for 75% off at cvs and so glad i did. I got both this and the navy blue one. This is great as an eye base color or to just line the eyes but it isn't as black as I like it to be. Get this if you ever see it on sale cause it's great and lasts very long throughout the day. It is a lot thicker than regular average eyeliner stick.

WOW! This stuff makes an amzing base for black shadows! Its a shame i finally find this & its being DCed (always my luck). You have to scrub to get this stuff off your lids though. This is total HG for me when i want dark lids

Oh why did I have to discover this product when they've decided to discontinue it? After endlessly searching for a drugstore eyeliner to replace the overpriced Benefit Bad Gal that I love so much, I finally stumbled upon HIP's fat eyeliner crayon in Perfectionist. Extremely highly pigmented as labeled, this pencil is the blackest black. The formula is remarkably smooth and glides effortlessly onto the eyelid. It sets very well after application without budging or smudging. I use it as a base layer under MAC's Carbon eyeshadow for the ultimate black/goth/smokey eye look. Very dramatic. Now that I know that they're not making any more, I'm going to buy out the rest of them at my local CVS. Oh, it's easily removed using Mary Kay's Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover, btw.

I have been looking everywhere for this eyeliner. I bought it a few years ago at a Wal-mart (but sadly am not near one now) for about $8 and change. The pigmentation is gorgeous, it doesn't budge or fade, lasts all day long even on my waterline. I've tried a whole bunch of eyeliners, drugstore and from Sephora but I keep wanting to go back to this one.
- I use up one of these about every 2-3 weeks, doing my eye makeup 6-7 days out of the week. So in the long run, it's actually pretty expensive. It takes me a whole year to use up a jar of cream eyeliner.
- I CANNOT FIND IT IN STORES. And I don't want to order it online and have to pay shipping.
- Yes, like others have said, it is difficult to remove but what good eyeliner isn't? I don't find that this eyeliner is THAT much more difficult to take off than the HIP cream eyeliner.

Holy. Grail. LOVE this eyeliner! It's so smooth and goes on with the lightest touch and is a pure, dark black. It put it on my waterline today, and I didn't touch up ONCE. Perfect staying power on my lid, too.
Try this. You will love it.

Nice rich color, but it dries upon application, so you can smudge it all over the lid if you were using it as a base, which was what I was trying to do.

This stuff is pretty quality and has a multitude of uses. The large diameter of this pencil lets you cover more area faster. It makes for an excellent shadow base. A black base really makes colors pop.
This season seems to be all about drama, and MAC and other high end brands are coming out with tons of dark cosmetics, including black lip products. This would be great as a black lip liner, or all over color. Throw some clear gloss over the top and you've got the season's edgiest look.
Personally, I bought it as an eyeliner for touch-ups when I'm out and about. At home I apply the HIP cream liner with a brush, but I don't want to mess with carrying all that. It's very hot where I live right now and my liner starts to smudge and fade pretty fast if I'm outside. I don't wear my liner very thin, but I also not extremely thick, so I can't let the end get too dull. It's a bit of a pain to have to sharpen it so frequently, since I think a lot of the product is wasted that way. Keep in mind this product is not supposed to be waterproof, but it still held up well in the swatch and rub test I do on my hand when I get a new liner. It wasn't as good as the HIP cream liner, or Revlon's ColorStay, but still acceptable.
Overall it's pretty good for touch ups. It's quite dark black (though not the truest black I've seen), and has decent staying power, just a little less than the HIP cream liner. It's not too soft or too hard. Try this out if you're looking for a thicker eye pencil, or for something to fit the uses I stated above.

I bought this today in Meticulous (taupe). I have to say that this stuff does not come off easily. I did a color swatch on my hand three hours ago and then tried to wipe it off with a dry cloth. It did not come off at all. It's still on my hand as clearly as when I put it on three hours ago. I would like to try the black, but I'm hesitant since this light color does not come off easily. However, I love the Meticulous color as a second liner to my thin black pencil liner and as a shadow.
I do have to say that the color is too light on me. You can't see it at all, but the concept and product is good.

It's of good use if you are a pro at make up application. Nice for replacement black eyeshadow as its easier to apply and stays longer. HOWEVER: it doesnt smudge well, which is what it intends to do as a smooth crayon. For me, it just pieces off when I try to smudge it. Doesnt do fine lines either. Very disappointed :(

This would be one of the better eyeliners I have had.
For this eyeliner, I personally wouldn't get it at it's full price, but instead wait till your drugstore has a BOGOF sale. The eyeliner will be worth your money.
I have no problem using this eyeliner, but when I used it on my lower water line,it made my eyes turn a bit red, but if I don't my eyes are perfectly fine.
I have oily eyelids and I wear this eyeliner to school for about 6-8 hours and it does smudge at the end of the day, but it doesn't smudge up till the point where you have raccoon eyes.
Overall I would repurchase this product again :]

I love the HIP line of products. So far, I have the HIP products in the mascara, cream liner, eyeshadow and cream crayon. My favorites among the line so far have been the eyeshadows, which deliver vibrant intense color, and the mascara. While I loved the creamy texture and intense color of the cream crayon, I don't understand why L'oreal had to make the liner so big? I mean, if I am going to line my eyes with this product one would assume that I am going to draw a thin line and not a 3-4mm thick line. The large size of the crayon makes precision application difficult.
A plus about this product is that it glides on easily and delivers rich color. Compared to other liners I have tried, this goes on the smoothest. It goes on effortlessly and doesn't drag the skin like some liners.
However, this liner does not have much staying power. Within only a few hours this started to crease on my eyelids. FYI, I rarely wear eyeshadow so there is nothing that is keeping the oil at bay on my eyelids. I will use this product until it is finished and set it with powder, but I will not be repurchasing.

I love this eyeliner. So far this is my HG of all eyeliners. It's quite interesting because L'oreal in general has carried two of my favorite HG products for eyes.
I must warn you though, that you have to work with this eyeliner quickly. If not then it doesn't look as good so you have to be patient and practice. If you are good with makeup than I assume this will be easy for you.
This eyeliner stays on all day for me. It is a little harder to remove which is a bit annoying but what I do it dip a q-tip in my eye makeup remover. Then I dab it and swipe. You have to rub a little to remove it but it's worth it. Forget smears, raccoon eyes, and crying is permitted!

I have all the colors... all of them but this is the only once I use everyday. It is my current HG eyeliner, I LOVE this and if I didn't have this, I wouldn't know what to do.
Other drugstore liners smudge, smear and wear away... so fast and this one doesnt budge! once it dries. If you apply it very thickly, it'll probably be a little hard to remove, but it isn't typically too tough to get off.
I use this daily to line my waterline and it stays put, except by the end of the day the outer edges wear away a little (I have small, chinky eyes... probably has something to do with this).
I don't really use the other colors because black gives me most dramatic effect (on the waterline) so I usually only use that. I am almost done with it, and soon I will go buy another.
A green one I had once ... the stick fell out of the tube... and I had to throw it away. The black one does it too; like it is loose and I take care not to let it fall out. That is one of the only bad things.
It always comes with a sharpener at the other end; kind of wasteful if you ask me, but if you want a pointed, and thinner point it works (I've used it before).
In my earlier days I used to use this as base and it works pretty well as that too (just don't use too much or it'll crease).
I only buy HIP products when the drugstores are on BOGO for it, otherwise it would be too expensive, drugstore-wise.
LOVE this =D
