I was really excited for this product because i saw many good reviews.
The packaging is pretty good, and the gel goes on my eyes very very smoothly. However it doesnt look really black when i put it on so i have to go back and put more of it a few times. Plus, the brush that comes with is harsh and poor quality. The biggest downfall is that it smudges! Many eyeliners smudge on my eyes, and to my dissapoint, this was no exception. I'd look for something that has greater staying power.

Uhh...this transfers to my lid like no other! I bought this because I ran out of my MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack and wanted to try something new. This glides on easy but doesn't have that flat black that I love about fluidlines. You have to reapply this over and over again to get a really black solid line. I have really oily lids and this doesn't stay on with primer/paint pot at all! MAC fluidlines tend to stay on all day for me. This really smudges quickly and fades throughout the day. I end up having to wipe my lids all day because of this stupid liner. I'm so disappointed I can't return it.

I'll continue to use MAC fluidlines.

Love this eyeliner because it lasts really long on my oily lid. Mine is a bit dried out but I like the texture a bit more that way because it was a bit like shiny and too creamy when I bought it. Very black color. Brush that it comes with is useless but a nice gesture. Would repurchase!

I bought this as I had relocated to a city that didn't have a MAC counter (boo-urns!) and needed a gel pot liner to replace it, as pencil liners are too chalky to do my signature cat-eye with.

So I bought Clinique's brush-on liner in True Black and have been using it for around 8 months now. How does it compare to MAC Blacktrack?

-It seems to be more slippery than Blacktrack, so it slides right on and is very easy to apply (I use a MAC 209 brush to do my eyeliner)
-However, it does seem to be a bit less pigmented and more transparent. It transfers on to your eyelids halfway through they day if they get oily, and leaves a smeary, "ghost-track" on the hood of your eye. You can slow down the wear of it by prepping your eyelids with matte foundation.
-It's just as, if not more, tenaciously water-resistant than Blacktrack, and still very.. very easy to remove with makeup remover! Yay!

I would recommend this as an alternative to my beloved HG of eyeliners in a pinch. But remember to prep before applying this eyeliner, and either blot or set your crease with translucent powder throughout the day so it doesn't wear off!

Hope this review helped!

This is a great gel eyeliner for first timers at a reasonable price. I found I got a better application with my MAC 209 Eyeliner brush (I like a very thin neat line). The only downside is that it smudges sometimes. I bought the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner Set and it does exactly what it says...it lasts all day and night without a smudge. I also find the quality and ease of application with the BB Gel Eyeliners are much better.

This Was My First Creme Eyeliner. I Like It Very Much. It Goes On Nicely, And It Is Dark(Atleast You Can Make It By Lightly Applying It Over You Line) I Love It. It Looks Very Smooth And Creamy And Makes My Small Green Eyes Look Big. I Would Definitely Recommend It. It Last A Long Time And By The End Of The Day I Just Grab A Q-Tip With A Lil Lotion And It Comes Right Off!

Hm... this was my first cream liner i've ever bought and I have to say it is very gooood. It's not as black as i'd like it to be and i haven't compared it to MAC's gel liner in black, but i'd suppose it isn't as pigmented as MAC's is. other than that, it is super creamy and goes on very niceeee.

This is my favorite eyeliner so far. The texture is so smooth and creamy that it's easy to alter and re-alter to your perfection. It also stays on and does not come streaking off at the end of the day. I recommend using either a really thin eyeliner brush or a lip brush instead of the little brush that comes with the application. I use a lip brush - it's easy to handle and it helps me get a precise line.

This is now my favorite. It's just like the cream pencils but there's a ton more of it. In fact, I think this will last me at least two years or more. Of course, I'll probably replace it before then but what a great deal, relatively.

Some say the brush is too small, but not for me. The brush is perfect and the bristles are perfect to put the shape that I want that isn't too thick.

This is an amazing cream liner...a million times better than Mac's fluidline! It's VERY black, very smooth and easy to work with, and lasts all day, even on my waterline! It also doesn't irritate my super sensitive eyes. Pretty much a flawless product, love it!
