This liner smears while I try to apply it. I will start with a thin line across the whole lash line and then go back and thicken it at the outer corner and as I try to add a little more at a time it is wiping right off. It starts out super black then fades. Smears really easily even if I set with eyeshadow. Too expensive to be this bad!

No different than any other eyeliner. Smudges and fades within 1 hour.

I don't know how to put it other than: These liners are AMAZING!!! I purchased my first one in Cherry Black and within a week I had gone back to get 3 more colors. I have a love hate relationship with eyeliner...I love the way it looks and defines my eyes, but I have super sensitive and watery eyes that will almost always win the fight with eyeliner leaving me looking like a badly made-made up crying raccoon! However, these gems from YSL are as tenacious as it gets but they don't irritate my eyes at all. My eyes tend to be watery anyway, and these puppies withstand my faucet eyes, workout sweats, humidity, everything!! They are super easy to apply, great for tightlining, and aesthetically gorgeous. I use the Sephora pro gel liner brush or Laura Mercier's flat top push liner brush and they glide on like a dream (and I suck at applying potted liner!). My mom has commented on my eye makeup every time she sees me and I happen to be wearing one if these liners (and she's my toughest critic so that's pretty huge!). They dont flake, budge, feather, migrate, transfer or run. The texture is smooth and creamy, and just a dip in the pot gets me an adequate amount for once across the lid. They can also be built up easily without the color sliding all around (to fill in mistakes, thicken the line etc... these babies are opaque and pigmented!) Once they've set, they're bulletproof, so a seperate eye makeup remover is necessary, or if you use a cleansing oil like me, it does a great job at removal as well. The price may seem steep but they're worth the money, trust me!! The opacity and quality of this liner makes the amount in the pot enough to last forever and ever...I haven't had problems with drying out yet, so hopefully it stays that way. Just remover to screw the lid on super right every time and store them as recommended. These are truly splurge-worthy and are my HG! I have them in Deep black which is exactly what the name implies, Cherry-black which is more of a deep blackened purple, sea black which imo isn't black at all, it's a gorgeous dark blue (but not as deep as navy), jade black which is a beautiful deep green, and bronze black which is actually more of a khaki, but is gorgeous nonetheless!! These liners from YSL reawakened my love for eyeliner!

Thoroughly enjoying this product. I bought the Jade Green and the navy blue (forgot name).
I have a difficult time with gel liners but will not give up on them either. This one applies like a dream, very soft. The colors are elegant. the packaging.. meh, they all come in some form of pot which unless closed very carefully will give you a dried up product in short order.
The coverage is excellent and they draw a very defined line. So far I have not had any problem with messy tear duct leakage. I have to remove with Bifacil not because they are entirely waterproof, but because I don't like to tug at my eyelids.
I did not purchase the black because I have quite a few from many other lines and black is the most simplistic color around.

I bought the 'Jade Black' shade because I wanted a green gel liner to wear with my favourite green eyeshadows, such as MAC Greensmoke, Humid and Sumptuous Olive. It's a gorgeous green with a black base, and applies very smoothly. Once on the lid, it stays looking vibrant and does not flake off at all. I also use it on my waterline and it stays put all day. It's worth purchasing for the unique colour combination of green and black. Bottom line: if you're looking for a gel liner that is long-wearing and stays looking fresh, get one from YSL.

Fabulous product. I have ashy black, which is a deep graphite shade. It applies like a dream, lasts all day (I set it with a dab of powder), and removes easily. What more can you ask for from a cream liner?

I ended up purchasing this eyeliner after I found out that the Givenchy cream eyeliner I'd been using prior to this had been discontinued. Although expensive, this is the best cream eyeliner I've used thus far.
I'm someone who wears a cat-eye every single day, and I'm pleased to say that this eyeliner has lasted me almost a year! In that time, it has maintained quality, consistency and pigment over this period. I apply it with an angled MAC eyeliner brush, and finish off with a pointed eyeliner brush. This product is super pigmented, and super black- which is exactly what it should be for this price. It glides on really easily, and dries quite fast, which is great if you're in a hurry. The other eyeliners I used prior to this, be it liquid or cream have irritated my eyelid; this does not do so.
The only problem I have with this product, is that it is prone to smudging. This can be corrected by touch-ups with eye makeup touch up sticks like the ones Simple makes.
I am impressed with this product, and will consider buying this product again. However, I am also going to be considering other products with longer lasting power on my next purchasing trip.

I bought this to see if it was better than MAC's Blacktrack. It's alright but it doesn't have the staying power or the colour saturation of MAC's BT, plus, too expensive in comparison. On to Bobbi Brown's Long Wear Gel Liner. Wish me luck!

This was an expensive product and thankfully, with Sephora's return policy, I decided to try it out......and i ended up returning it. I'm on the search for the best gel eyeliner to utilize the "tightlining" method which looks much better for me asian eyes than the normal eyeliner method near the lashline.
This eyeliner's colour was very pigmented and made my eyes look very luscious. However, it took time to try for it would smudge on my contacts and near my lower lashes. The wear's not good at all. I would have smudges on the bottom outer corner of my eye. For the price, this eyeliner was definitely not worth it for me at all.
I tried it out during my 10-hour shifts at work and it smudged like 1-2 hours later, giving me raccoon eyes. At first, I thought it was the heat because I was on the patio all day. But then wearing it after a day of shopping, it still did not impress me after its second chance. I ended up returning it and is still on the search for my perfect tightlining gel eyeliner!
