Ok so based on all the great reviews of this product I am lead to believe that maybe I purchased an old or bad product because this stuff was horrible. I bought the creamy cake liner and tried using it with just water and also with the creamy cake liner activator liquid and neither worked. The product was very translucent when mixed with the wet medium even when I worked it well into the brush and used very little of it. I really don't know where I went wrong. I ended up throwing it away frustrated I was so disappointed. Maybe the creamy liner just isn't as good as the regular cake liner and I should go get that one instead. This was sad for me because I am such a huge fan of their blushes I really wanted this to work for me =(

I recently bought laura mercier cake liner and it's great, but then ordered this one for a small fraction of the price, and it's just as good. There is no fancy packaging but you could order about 8 from la femme for the price of one laura mercier. It never dries out like gel liners, and it will last ages. with a little practice you can easily get the consistency that you like by using a little water, or they sell a cake eyeliner sealer for a few dollars that works great too. Very nice liner, and I will not go back to gel.

I bought this in brown two weeks ago, and I'm hooked! Like others, I use an angled brush to mix with water and apply as a line. My line is "medium" width because brown is pretty pale for a thin line, and I'm definitely not the "cat eye" type! A medium line gives me just enough color to bring out my eyes without making me look clownish. I'm a happy camper, and I'm getting faster with the brush, too.

I always loved cake eyeliners and no one makes them nowadays. Found LaFemme on your website. Come on now , for three dollars apiece they are fabulous. I use the sealer also, a bargain and works to keep eye set all day. thanks

I've been wearing this non stop since I got it last weekend. I'd never used or heard of a cake liner before and I saw it at my beauty supply store while browsing and thought I'd give it a try since it was so cheap. I bought the sealer with it and went home to try. It took a couple of tries to get the hang of it and now, on my third day, I'm wondering where this has been my whole life. I've been using fluidlines since they came out but have never liked how expensive it is and how it dries out over time. I do still use a pencil liner to line my inner rims because the sealer (or maybe its the eyeliner) burns a little if it gets in my eyes. Overall, its totally worth it to buy it and give it a try.

I have black and brown cake liner and they work AMAZING. I am comparing it with the Bobbi Brown Gel Liners that I own, Urban Decay Zero,.. La Femme works at least as well or even better. Colour is dark, beautiful and lasts all day long (10 hours at least). Fast done. I take a couple of water drops with my angle brush, put it on a corner of the cake liner, and then rub a little with the brush. The line dries in about 10 seconds and there is no need to repeat. Just once is fine. I also own Turquoise, the colour is very nice, but obviously the line you get is turquoise, so it is not as obvious as brown or black. There is no need to invest on a more expensive product. And the good thing is that it will never dry out as Bobbi Brown liners do! I also have sensitive eyes (allergy to Shadow insurance/Urban decay Primer), but no problem with this product.

I picked this cake liner up at Sally's on a whim because it was at the counter as I checked out, on sale for $2.99. I'd never heard of the line and had no idea what I was getting, but I'd been looking for a good black cake liner for a while and figured for the price I had nothing to lose. I bought the black/grey combo.
I was pleasantly surprised with the quality. It took a minute to get the liner worked into my brush, as the powder doesn't seem to wet down very well at first. However, once I had my brush loaded, it did a great job. The line was opaque and easy to control and only needed one coat. Staying power was impressive. I only used water, and even on a 94-degree day, the liner stayed put without smudging. I did use it only on the top lash line, not on the bottom.
Overall, very impressed. I removed one lippie because it is a bit of a chore to load the brush, but overall I'm very impressed with the quality of this liner, especially for the price.

I love these cake liners- particularly the shade Grey.
I highly recommend using this with the La Femme Eyeliner Sealer- together they make a smooth, beautiful long wearing eyeliner that is so easy to apply and take off.

OMG! I love this product!!.It's so versatile, it allows you to go from a natural look to a vampy va va voom look! tt goes on smooth and stays put all day long!

I have this in Deep Blue, and use it wet, with a tiny eyeliner brush from Ulta that is like a paintbrush (as opposed to one of the larger, angled brushers). It goes on easily, and totally stays put all day. The Deep Blue is kind of like navy but with life to it (but not TOO lively, not like a royal blue or anything). Probably what might be called a midnight blue. I wanted to find an eyeliner that wouldn't run under my eye on the outer corner, and had a hard time finding a cake eyeliner to put on wet. This one works beautifully, and you can't beat the price ($3). I've had it several months and have barely made a dent. It will certainly outlast the amount of time you're supposedly able to keep eye products for health reasons. This is one of those products that makes you realize how overpriced (other!) makeup can be.

I tried this product as I am always on the lookout for any eye makeup that will stay on my eyes, not under them. I bought the black and the sealer from Amazon. It does come off on me, but I have horrible food and environmental allergies, so I am always sneezing and coughing, especially this time of the year. What really impressed me is that when my eyes do water, it does not burn like liquid eyeliners. Be advised that the black is a really strong color - I will try another dark color next order.

Great staying power on my oily lids. I like that with Cake liners you can control the intensity better than with liquid liners. Highly recommend the dark brown and deep blue. Wish they had an intense purple and some deep metallics. Found a good selection of colors at Amazon. Great value for the price, staple item.

I found this stuff at a mom & pop beauty supply store, a hole-in-the-wall joint next door to some ubiquitous Chinese take-out place with worn linoleum floors. The kind of place that sell day-glo lime extensions and shampoo by the gallon... Anyway, this was like, two bucks, and looked like something my mom had in her medicine cabinet in the 70's, but I decided to try some on whim, while I was waiting to pay for my bottle of polish thinner which for some reason CVS/Walgreens/Rite Aid doesn't carry. Just goes to show, keep an eye out for cool things in the least expected places. This stuff is so awesome, and I like it even better than my MAC gel liners. It's a matte liner in a pot. Wet your angled brush with some water or sealer and go to town. It lasts all day but comes off easily with soap and water. Unfortunately it only comes in black and brown. If you find it, also pick up the sealer which is about $3.

I am reviewing the cake liner in Copper.
Copper is a warm deep brown--lighter than dark brown, darker than what I consider medium brownand not red brown. It is a very nice color. It is NOT metallic, but I knew that when I bought it.
This cake liner is very pigmented and stays on me, even the wings when I wing it out, for hours--even after a long nap. It does fade somewhat--but it is very minimal fading. It has also stayed in my waterline for longer than usual too. I can't wait to try the other colors I bought.
NC20-25 brown hair, olive brown eyes.
EDITED: The Copper is great but the other colors I have gotten have ranged from good to blech. Prefer Ben Nye Aquapaints and Kryolan Aquacakes after all.

This is the eyeliner I use when I'm just going to take the kids to school and then dash right back home again, or run out to the corner grocery store for bread. When I want an all-day eyeliner I use Bobbi Brown's gel eyeliners, I LOOOVE Bobbi Brown's gel eyeliners!! I find LF cake eyeliner a bit more of a hassle to apply than BB gel eyeliners and they take a little bit longer to put on too, but I'm not very expert at makeup. It's a hassle because I have to prepare a little pot of water to keep beside me on the table as I am applying the eyeliner, and mix constantly to continue to get the right consistency, if I stop mixing the liner gets a bit thick and clumpy. If I use too much water the liner gets thin and watery and the line that I draw is hardly visible at all. So it's a hassle. Once it goes on right though it makes a very beautiful, deep rich black line that looks intense like a liquid liner but it's also powdery and soft and natural like a pencil line. I took one lippie off because this product isn't all natural like mineral makeup and I get the exact same effect using mineral eye shadows wet as eyeliners but without all the toxins and chemicals. (I know BB gel eyeliners also have toxins and chemicals but they are worth it because they do last the whole day long and they are THE MOST quick and easy way to line your eyes of all the different kinds of liners I have tried.) This LF eyeliner also smudged a bit (but only a very little bit, but I have oily eyelids). (Now that I've read here on MUA about using sealant I will try that.) All that being said I still prefer cake liners to pencils and now that I have both cake and gel eyeliners I will never use pencils again. - UPDATE - I love this liner more and more! It is true what they say that practice makes perfect, this liner has now become just as easy to apply as my beloved BB gel eyeliners, in fact I find myself often preferring to use this eyeliner instead of my BB! Because it doesn't feel as *sticky* as BB liners, because it doesn't flake away slowly as BB gel liners do (it smudges away slowly instead of flaking away, well hey what do you expect? Absolutely NO eyeliner in the world can stay the whole day on my oily, creasy eyelids!). Because it is so cheap (but definitely not cheaper in quality in spite of its super low price!). Because it is available in so many colours even Bobbi Brown does not offer. Because when I wear it I feel like I'm not wearing anything, it is so light. So now I have 2 HGs, my BB gel eyeliners and my new La Femme cake liners. Every day I use one or the other, if no one ever invents anything better these are the 2 eyeliners I will use every day for the rest of my life!

love this liner! I've switched over from MAC liners (blitz/glitz) for everyday use because la femme has better almost-but-not-quite black colors that work better with my neutral eyeshadows. (I use charcoal and dark brown, both are so dark that they look nearly black, but without the harshness of black). I haven't had problems with flaking or smearing--especially after I figured out how to stir the right consistency. The liner actually dries very quicky--within 10 seconds--so there's little chance of smearing while its wet. I find that this works best with a tiny, soft "pointy" brush--like a mini, thin painer's brush, rather then the harder angled brush that I prefer for gel liners. I gave this a 4 because it can be difficult to move right at the lashes, even with a good waterproof remover. I will up the rating if I ever figure out how to solve this...*EDIT* I'm still figuring out how to remove it completely, but I love this, so its going to a 5

I've written review for this product, but might have posted it wrongly to the cream cake eyeliner thread. This is the BEST eyeliner I've ever tried. I have very oilly lids.None of the water-proof eyeliner work for me, as they are not öil-proof".This one,together with the sealer,works for me. It stays on until I take it off with eye makeup remover. It look more natural than liquid liner, doesn't drag and pull my skin like some hard pencil liner, and I don't have raccoon eye anymore. I used MAC #311 brush to apply a thin line for a natural look, tilt the angle of the brush to apply a thicker,more dramatic look.I just need 1 drop of the sealer each time. The best color is black. The plum color is a dissappointment though.

Why would anyone want to spend more than $3? I've found my HG for eye liner! This is THE BEST eye liner that I have EVER used (and I've been wearing make up for a VERY long time!) It's cheap, it works beautifully and is easy to use. This review is for the CAKE liner in black. I tried the creamy liner & didn't care for it.

I've had this cake eyeliner for at least 2 years now and I don't think I will ever finish it! I use this eyeliner almost every day. It's cheap, easy, and quick to use. I don't like the tugging of pencils and I'm sloppy with liquid eyeliner.
I have a little bottle that looks like a Visine bottle of sealant and I squeeze one drop from that, dip my cheapo eyeliner brush that I bought from Walgreen's into it and swirl around to pick up color. I like that I can control the instensity of the color and how it can look like I used a liquid liner if I want to be more dramatic/bold.
I have oily eyelids and it doesn't smudge or transfer. Now that I've run out of the La Femme sealant, I do not notice any differece between that and using tap water.

I've got this in black. Good: with a thin brush (got one from the arts&crafts store) it's super-easy to line my eyes with this. It cost $3, which means it was still cheap even though I had to order it from the US. It looks great - very black and lasts all day. It hasn't caused any irritation even in the middle of allergy season, when my eyes are more sensitive than usual. The pot is probably going to last about... ten years? Bad: that it's not available here (Sweden), that is really the only thing I can think of. Oh, yes, screw-top pots are annoying. If I ever run out of this (I doubt it) I will repurchase. I will definitely get another one, probably a purple, as soon as possible. Highly recommend it. EDIT: Now that I've ripped the foam out of my e/s palette and put a big magnet in it instead, I'm pleased to find that the eyeliner pan sticks very well to it and doesn't need to have a magnet added (like MAC or IsaDora pans). EDIT: Ok, I got more. Deep Blue, Iridescent Green, Iridescent Turquoise, Dark Brown, Charcoal, and Plum. The iridescent ones are a bit of a disappointment - they are so light, and much bluer than I expected. I'll probably use them as eyeshadow instead. The plum is a lot lighter than I thought it would be too. The Deep Blue is not navy, it's a rich clear blue, lovely.
