I will absolutely not use any other eyeliner.

I've used the pencils, the crayons, the liquid pens. Everything. But this is the only eyeliner that actually goes on the way that I want it to, and stays all day! Even through the desert heat! I usually pair it with the E.L.F liquid liner to get the cat eye look that I want, and they work in perfect harmony. I use the coffee colors.

Love.Love.Love.

The price is cheap, but the product is not.

Not a fan. This is a dry product and it came that way when I bought it. The top was tightly secured so I don't know if it's just old and has been sitting on a store shelf for a while. I am able to get it out of the jar with a brush but it's very thick and dry and it doesn't spread well. Into the trash this goes. Save your money and buy something else instead of this.

I bought this eyeliner and when I went to use it it is rock hard. I tried wetting the brush and that did nothing. It literally is so hard that I can take out the formula and it's in a perfect shape and I can throw it on the ground and it doesn't break. I have no idea what's going on with this. I think I got a super defective one. I'm not even gonna bother re buying

I've waited to review this liner until i had it at least a year, and i can sat that even after leaving the cap off a few nights or afternoons this has yet to dry out or clump up at all. That was the principal problem I'd heard about these, but if they can survive a year I'm good.
I find the liner creamy and easy to apply. I usually apply it with a sharpened pencil, usually the wet n wild black &brown eyeliners but a sharpened no. 2 pencil will get you the most gloriously thin line with great ease, which is perfect for drawing down your nose or temples for costume makeup.
I've never had problems with flaking or smudging, but i don't have oily eyelids so that'd not really what i look for in liner.

I usually use pen liners but I wanted to try something different. This doesn't break the bank at $3 so I picked it up. I have pretty oily eyelids and this stays on really well and doesn't transfer to my crease which is great. I'm considering getting some of the other colors.

The brush that came with it is terrible. I use the mini angled brush from coastal scents or a liner brush from bh cosmetics for a cleaner more precise line.

All in all I think it's a really good liner, but I'll probably keep using my pens for convenience.

I got this product in black and was pleasantly surprised by the ease of application. It is truly very creamy and easy to get a precise line. I did purchase a separate angled brush from E.L.F. because the one included is very thick, short and unwieldy. I also use the coffee color on my brows now. I don't set this product with anything and both for brows and winged liner it stays put all day unless I sweat excessively. Highly recommend this for affordable, matte black liner or for a pomade type brow product, but absolutely get a separate brush!

I bought this in 'Coffee'. I don't like the brush that came with it. It made applying it really messy. Luckily, I still had the brush that came with my 'Rimmel London Scandal Eyes' Gel Eyeliner. I was about to give up on this product, but I decided to try that brush. I was able to apply it much easier, and I had less product wasted. I like the quality of the eyeliner. It stays put, and is definitely worth $3 (maybe more). And again, the brush was awful that came with it. The packaging was simple, but you have to twist the lid more than normal gel liners. The formula is true to name, and really creamy. I'll definitely repurchase this!

I use the coffee color on my eyebrows. My brows are thin due to years of damage, and this is fantastic. The color is perfect, the coverage is perfect, it makes my eyebrows look SO natural. so insanely natural. They look amazing and I can't imagine life without this! I paid 3 or 4 dollars for a pot that will last me years.

The brush that came with mine is actually PERFECTION! it's perfectly angled!

I'm surprised by how much I like this product. I've tried cream and gel liners before from Sephora and the drug store, and I may like this one the best so far. I really like how pigmented and long-lasting it is. I purchased it for $3 CAD, and for that price, it's a steal.

I have to admit that at the end of a long day, the liner can sometimes bleed into the outer edges of my eyes, but I don't set the liner with any shadow on top so I'm not very bothered by that. I use the liner with the e.l.f. angled eyeliner brush and they work together really well. Because the eyeliner is in a pot, it could be daunting for someone not experienced with cream eyeliner. It can be difficult to use with other brushes that aren't the right angle or size, but the price is cheap enough that someone could easily buy it, practice with it and see if they like it.

I like the packaging, as it has definitely held up. Granted, everything about the packaging is plastic so I'm not sure how it'll fare when it's dropped or cracked. Many products in pot-type packaging tend to dry up, in my experience, so I'll have to see how this product holds up in the future. So far, I've had no problems.

The quality of this product makes me want to try others in the line, but definitely other cream eyeliners. I am really satisfied with the product, and I use it almost every day. I strongly recommend this eyeliner.
