I use this liner daily. I can make it work for not only my upper lash line but also for my water and tight line. A little goes a long way with this so it lasts a while. You get a liner brush that comes with it and works very well. Its a durable brush and cleans well. The brush is good for applying glitter too. Its not super shiny and can be made matte by setting it with a black shadow.

I loved everything about this but it totally smudged and disappeared.

Yes, I agree with all the reviews here. ALSO, however, I want to add: great on the eyebrows, too!

This liner is soft, creamy, yet doesn't smudge easily on my (somewhat) oily lids. The color is a deep grey that is great to wear for a softer, more casual look. A good alternative to a black liner, which could sometimes be harsh. It also lasts on my lids all day. I wore it for about eleven hours the other day and by the end of the day, it looked as good as it did when I first applied it.

I've also had my jar for a little over a year now and it has shown no signs of drying up. The little brush the pot came with is also very usebale and not too bad.

Love this. I have always had trouble with liquid liner so this is a fantastic alternative. It takes a while to dry, so that means you have time to fix errors with a qtip. The slate is a great colour for those that feel black is to harsh.

Amazing!!!
This is one of the few produts I'm tempted to hoard from fear of it being discontinued.

Color:
Like many fans of this item, I cannot wear harsh black eyeliner. Even though I am raven-haired, black liner looks like Sharpie marker on my fair skin. Dark Slate is a PERFECT NEUTRAL softened black/ dark taupe...NOT blu-ish or silver like some greys or slates; NOT reddish or khaki like many browns. Some comparable (but not perfect) shades for reference are Clinique's Smoke Grey Cream Eyeliner, Clinique's (Discontinued) Blackened Taupe Kohl Pencil, Prestige's Charcoal Brown Waterproof Eyeliner.

Packaging/Applicator:
High-end looking glass pot with metal exterior to the lid. (Plastic-only lids can crack letting the product dry.) The brush is long enough to manage and short enough to pack. The bristles are soft enough to get right at lashline yet not so soft that they loose their shape. The texture is perfectly suited to the formula.

Formula: *Angels singing*
Somehow this formula is soft and creamy, BUT stays put on your eyes, YET removes easily without scrubbing. The formula goes on smooth, can be fine and defined, OR smudged out...even blended out with a shadow. The liner lasts all day; I've only needed touch ups if I rub at my eyes on bad pollen days. Also a pot lasts several months of almost daily use. Mine is about a year old and it is still as creamy and smooth as the first day I opened it.

i like to combine this color along with a black or black-brown eyeliner pencil on most days. by itself, the color is also nice, a light charcoal gray. it doesnt stay as long as i would like it to and its not waterproof 😞

This is a good basic gray gel eyeliner. The pigment is fairly intense but since it is gray it is not overly dramatic. I use it for light makeup days. The texture is slightly dry, more so than the Espresso. I guess something in the different pigments affects the creaminess of the different shades. Otherwise it wears very well and does not flake or fade. The one thing I do notice is that it feels "thick" on the eyelid. Again it is only with the Dark Slate that I notice this.

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a true gray liner. It wears very well and it is easy to apply for a gel/cream liner.

I have been using this for well over a month now & I must say, it is an excellent gel liner! I don't care so much for the brush, however. But the product itself, is absolutely great, as is the color! Not too dark or light. Very natural look to the shade. I have always preferred not to use a pencil liner on the top lid-so it is liquid liners, or gel/creams for me. For a gel/cream liner of this quality, it is dirt cheap!

My stupid sensitive eyes have made makeup difficult for me lately. I had to give up mascara as I kept messing with my eyes, so I definitely need eye definition. My eyes don't like particles so I've had to give up powder eye products and shimmer anything above eye level. They've also been protesting the friction of pencil eyeliner so gel liner seemed like the next logical step. Even cream eye products are game for causing me chemical sensitivies so it was with a leap of faith that I tried L'Oreal Dark Slate. WINNER! Looks so great with Maybelline's Tough as Taupe. Creamy yet long lasting, non-shimmery, non-irritating (to me), deep natural color (flattering warm dark gray), stays workable for a bit for smudging if you wish. Pretty close to perfect - wish it were a touch more pigmented - but I'm always wishing for more pigment in all my products. Includes a nice brush for detail work, but the gel liner is not brush-dependent and works with whatever brush you want to use for various effects. I've been able to create nice ombred effects on the lid or in the crease with Tough as Taupe as a mid-tone taupe and Dark Slate as a deep taupe. I've even used a touch on the tail of my eyebrows with the included brush. Versatile product and HG for me. I'll be comparing all future gel liner purchases to this.
