this eyeliner runs and smudges like crazy. I have UDPP on my lids with eyeshadow and use this as eyeliner and it smudged on me in half an hour!! i have oily lids but usually UDPP will control my oil on the lids. This eyeliner is the worst cream liner i tried. save your money

I turned to gel/cream eyeliners once I realized pencil eyeliners were not for me.. At first, I was hesitant that I wouldn't have a steady hand for it. But with enough practice, it gets easier.
I used L'Oreal's H.I.P. color gel eyeliners for awhile but at 10$ a pop, I knew I needed to find another alternative.
I was excited when E.L.F. came out with their cream eyeliners. 3$, variety of colors: black, dark purple, brown, olive, etc. and available at Target or online.
The E.L.F. gel eyeliner is the ONLY eyeliner I've used that has stayed during an eyelash curl. It stays on all day with no smudging and creates a perfect line every time. I do not use primer but I don't have oily lids. I HATE reapplying eyeliner and don't have to with this one! I don't use the brush it comes with because it's too small and hard. I use a Sonia Kashuk angled brush that was around 10$. Well worth the investment.
Downsides: it does not perform well on the waterline and tends to dry out if you don't close it properly.
I have used this gel eyeliner for nearly a year (which goes to show how long the pot would last especially because I use it every single day) - a huge feat in the make up world..especially for all the make up addicts out there who love to try new products!
For reference, I have used eyeliners from Almay, MAC Technakohl, Rimmel, Revlon ColorStay, Urban Decay 24/7, Make Up For Ever, etc. and E.L.F. by far surpasses them all! Give it a try if you're interested...you never know if it could become your HG.
UPDATE: I have since moved onto Milani Infinite Liquid Eyeliner and love it so much more than the E.L.F. Cream Eyeliner. Better color payoff, stays put FOREVER, and works well on the waterline.

I'm not a cream liner expert, but this feels like the putty you put on walls, has zero pigment, and manages to flake ans smudge around. It tugs really hard on my eyelid, and so getting an even line is near impossible.
The little tiny brush they give you, however, works well with other products. Too bad I lost it. (It's seriously, like, 2.5 inches long.) But it made getting way close to the mirror very easy.

It's a no. I didn't mind it at first application and would have given it a high score if I'd reviewed it when it was new. The colour density was a little lacking but it layered ok. I then sealed it, sat it upside down with the lid tight as with my gel liners and didn't use it for a month. I recently opened it to find a shrunken pellet in the pot, pulled away from the walls and quite stiff. I'm sure that its still sort of usable, but why would you bother? The formula isn't great, It transfers and smudges. I paid $7.95 AUD.

I am an avid use of MAC and Bobbi brown gel liners. I had the chance to work with ELF Studio Cream Eyeliner #black before my company dinner yesterday night, on 8 of my colleagues. The product was provided by a colleague who bought the item out of impulse. This is by far the worst cream eyeliner I have tried! You get what you pay for. The consistency is VERY waxy and dry, which clumps on the angled brush that came with it.I tried using 4 diff other brushes ( MAC, Sigma, Etude house, MUFE) to draw dramatically winged cat-eyed liners on the ladies.It was almost impossible to achieve precision with this crappy product. NO, it was no way near MAC blacktrack fluid liner or Clinique gel liner as some reviews have claimed. I tried to warm up the formula on the back of my hand before application and it dries out so fast. I foresee this product drying out in the pot way before one is half way thru it. The colour pay-off is decent and would work better as an eye shadow base for smokey looks.

i bought this in the gunmetal color, and it was just ok i think it would be better as a cream shadow though because it was not very pigmented and the texture was sheer. i found the packaging to be a bit bulky as well. My sister got the black one and although it was not as good as mac or clinique i think it would be good for someone first starting out!

It's only 3$, a pretty good price. Comes with a brush, easy to use. I got it in black, it's decent but it dried out quickly.

This product is only $3 which is why I *might* consider buying it in another color.
I bought mine in purple and was SO EXCITED TO USE IT.
expected it to work a little like Maybelline's liner.
But, this is a cream shadow, that is really...fluffy.
That's the best way I can describe it.
It came with a really little brush,and I dabbed my brush into the liner and the brush sank in with ease. So this product 'felt' light. I tried it on and the color was not as pigmented as I thought it would be.
Ehh, but I ended up lining my top lid, letting it dry and relining it which helped a little. Patting the liner with a shadow might make it last longer.
***If your lids get oily quicky, this product might disappoint you***

I use gel eyeliner for my waterline only, and I was very disappointed with the results of this eyeliner. I usually love E.L.F products so I assumed that their eyeliner was going to be a quality product. Instead, it is one of the worst products I have ever bought. The consistency of the eyeliner throughout the pot varied, with some of it being smooth and other bits being almost waxy. The smooth bits were too watery and hardly pigmented. I like my eyeliner to pop, so when a product says black, I expect a strong bold color. I always wipe my waterline with a q-tip, apply my eyeliner, and then put a black shadow over it for lasting power and within an hour this was almost gone, and balling up in the corners of my eyes. The brush is also harsh, and almost irritating to my eyes. It's best to pass on this one and spend a few dollars more on a long lasting eyeliner.
