Nothing has never "not-creased" on my hooded and oily eyelids. Nothing, ever until I tried this. First of all the quality of the gel and the brush is just spectacular. I managed to effortlessly create a wing as the brush is beautifully designed and the gel just glides on. It is rich and matte and expensive looking. So I just tried this in the morning, without any primers on, or powders or anything to make it not smudge and stay on. The same evening, the filck and the eyeliner was still there, just like new. You cannot beat the price too. All in all, a perfect, perfect product!!

This product is awesome! When I was getting ready in the morning I did a wing for my eyes using this product. I got home late that night and was too tired to take my makeup off. When I woke up the next morning, the wings were still intact (although they were faded a bit, of course). This product has amazing staying power. Would definitely recommend this product! Note: I did use Urban Decay primer potion prior to applying any eye products.

Not bad, but not smudge proof. Great for wings, and creases on me (though nothing has ever NOT creased on me), and very creamy. A better gel liner than MAC blacktrack. It's not this product; gel liner just doesn't work for me.

I've used this eyeliner for about 4 months now and while the pot is a mess and the outer edges have dried a tad, beyond that is still as good as new! I have been using gel eyeliner for as long as I can remember, and I think for the price this one is on point. The brush it comes with is not horrible, but definitely not as precise as can be so I would recommend using a silicone eyeliner brush to avoid it getting crusty so easily.

I don't find the product smudges or moves easily at all, and the pigmentation is great and easily buildable. It doesn't turn grey throughout the day which is a huge plus (reason why I HATE eyeliner felt tips).

Seriously don't know why there are so many bad reviews?!

Haaa! I didn't even know this was a gel liner because I've had it for several months and within a week or so, the consistency was so dry and chalky that "gel" was the furthest thing from my mind when looking for a descriptive word for this stuff. I'd describe it as more of a cream when new, and after owning it for a bit, although being tightly capped, it dries into a chunky, chalky mess inside the pot. The brush it came with does an alright job of applying the product, but it's so hard and isn't very kind to your eyes. If I use this, I apply it with the slanted eyeliner brush from Eco Tools. I don't really like the formula doesn't apply very cleanly, smudges badly, and goes on too thick for my taste. The good thing about this product is that you get quite a bit inside the pot, so it's not a total rip-off. But that's if you enjoy it long enough to actually keep it until it's used up. The only other gel liner I've owned also dried up to a petrified rock inside the pot, so I'm not sure if that's typical or if because I've only bought the drugstore variety. Maybe a higher end gel liner would be of better quality? I'll never know, because my short stint with them are over lol. Back to the felt tip liners I go!

Will NOT repurchase.

Honestly, I hate this product. I wanted to take a break from liquid eyeliners for a little while and see what all the fuss about gel liners was. I've tried a few gel liners, but this one was by far the worst. First of all, I do want to mention that the color is really nice. But that's the only thing I like about this liner. The formula is thick and sticky and does not apply well. It has a tendency to glob, even when I don't apply a lot at a time. It doesn't even dry! No matter how long I let it sit and dry, it never does. As soon as I stop squinting and open my eyes, it gets on my eyelids every time. And I have dry lids! Not oily! I absolutely had this stuff. Never ever buying this again.

I can't really review this product much because it dried out within 48 hours of me opening it. However, my first impression when I used it was that I liked the creamy consistency. It was very pigment but not too pigmented, and very build able. I don't recommend using the brush it comes with if you have almond shaped eyes as I found it was oddly shaped and too stiff to get a nice thin line. Overall the product was decent but the lasting power was not.

I have oily eyelids and a light brown complexion and this just doesn't do it for me. Smudges every time and appears dark grey on my eyes. I don't mind the colour as it is soft on my older skin, but I mind the smudging very much.

I tried it once before a few years ago, and thought I'd give it another go as it was half price. Won't be buying again.

-The color stays dark, no fading.
-Easy to apply.
-The price is reasonable.

-Smudges every time.
-Not waterproof.

I would give this a better review if the eyeliner didn't end up all over my face every single time. I don't have oily eyes, in fact my skin is very dry. I am disappointed since the formula seems to work pretty well besides the smudging. I do work outside and sweat a lot, but it also does this when I don't sweat.
