My HG black eyeliner. I love E.L.F. cosmetics and this product right here is one of the reasons why. An affordable jet black eyeliner is a must have in every girls collection. Its very creamy and glides on smoothly and opaque. It dries in a reasonable amount of time, there is no smudging or transfering of the eyeliner. It doesnt smell at all. It has a good amount of product, you do not need to worry about running out. The longest that I have been with the same container would be 6-7 months.Throughout that time it did dry out a bit but really, what eyeliner doesnt dry out? It was still workable and still creamy ( I used it almost every day). During the sumer was when I did notice that it sometimes would transfer ( not smudge). So if you live somewhere that is always hot or if you have oily eyelids then this probably isnt a good option and I recommend you look for a waterproof eyeliner. It stays on a long time! I will assume it depends on the type of skin you have but for me it easily lasts 12 hrs. Some nights I will not wash my face (bad I know) and I wake up to find my eyeshadow long gone but my winged eyeliner look still intact from the morning before. As for the the brush, you dont have to use it. I dont. I keep them as a travel/mini size eyebrow brush when Im in a rush. Doesnt take up any space in a makeup bag. I really hope you give it a try. Its only $3 and depending on what you are using now, it could save you a lot of money.

I have this in a metallic olive shade and in black. The olive shade is a great (though I think discontinued) subtle color. I like using it alone or paired with brown and neutral shades for everyday. Staying power is 2/5, it tends to disappear very quickly. The brush is nothing amazing but does the job adequately.

The black, on the other hand, was disappointing. A black cream or gel liner should be able to stand out, and this just doesn't stand up to similar products (even for it's price point; Wet n Wild makes a black gel liner for a dollar more that blows this out of the water.) It's not opaque enough, and the consistency is too solid, making it hard to work with. I didn't even wear it out of the house, I just layered a different black liner on top of it.

The metallic olive color warrants an overall rating of 3 on this product. For three bucks, it's not a bad cream liner. The black gets a 1 though.

I really enjoyed this product. Creamy and long-wearing, there is not much bad things to say about it. The packaging however was a bit too bulky and well, annoying. After this is used up, I'll be trying the wetnwild one!

I love cream eyeliner for many reasons; sticks to my skin, doesn't smudge like most pencils, bold colors, crisp lines, blendable if needed. I bought Black and loved it, something new and exciting from E.L.F., brush included! Got Coffee, Metallic Olive and Copper in the second batch. LOVED copper, it's amazing with my strawberry hair and golden-green eyes, metallic Olive is great for a different smokey eye.

Goes on smooth with a little warming up with the brush and deposits lots of color. Lasts all day, works for tightlining if needed.

Downside is that they can dry up and take more brush work before being able to apply. Coffee was the first to go, sadly, but I can still get some to use. For the colors, payoff and cost, I can live with this but don't want to have to. Took over a year to dry up, too.

This product is very cheap and you get a lot for the price. I seriously think it will last me years and years even if I use it everyday. Great color pay-off. However, I have oily lids and it creases more on me. Other than that, I love the product!

I have this in black and gunmetal. Both apply nicely and stay on pretty well on my hooded asian eyes. Slight smudging in the inner corner (again due to the hooded eye) and a tiny bit of smudging under the eye but pretty acceptable. I still prefer my Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliners for its long wear and minimal smudging but this is a pretty good budget friendly backup.

I've recently gotten into tightlining, and I love using my E.L.F. cream eyeliners for that (I alternate black and coffee). It stays put all day and has so far not dried out. Even if it did, so what? It's $3.

I also have metallic olive, and it's really pretty but I just don't wear it as much.

I haven't experienced any eye irritation or that film-on-the-eyeball feeling that some eyeliners give me. Good purchase!

I tried this because I've been trying to cut back on makeup spending and needed a black gel/cream eyeliner. For $3, you can't get much cheaper. Well, it works like it's $3. I actually threw this product away. It was like when you wet your brush and use an eyeshadow as an eyeliner. It applies smoothly and looks great when first applied. For me (and this goes for both this eyeliner and when I try to used eyeshadow as a liner with a wet brush), it makes my eyes water and then the eyeliner runs and stings my eyes making them water more. The result is a running, stinging mess. Hence, I threw it away.
So, if you are the kind of person who can use eyeshadow with a wet brush as eyeliner, give it a shot. Otherwise, save up for mac or bobbi brown. Side note, maybelline's gel liner that so many people love did the same thing on me. I do want to try L'oreal's new gel liner though.

Wow I thought this would be just as messy as all the other gel liners ive tried but this stuff is actually very very smudge resistant! Today I put it on my waterline and it lasted ALL DAY and its 95 degrees out where I live so i was SWEATEN. Of course there was slight fading like in the very outer corners where liner tends to smudge on me anyways so I dont bother touching that part up... but otherwise it looked perfect for hours and hours and hours..im amazed! Ive tried many many black eyeliners (pencils, cream, etc etc) and they would always fade away in an hour or smear all over the place...but this stuff stayed put all day long even in my water line. I will use it forever <3

I have this in teal. Very gorgeous against darker skinned girls (my picture is up there (^). Very good staying power too. I remember going to the gym with it on and it lasted throughout my workout. I will repurchase it again and in other colors as well.
