This is my HG gel liner hands down. If you are older, have deep set eyes, small eyes, aging lids then this is something you need to try. I love how easily this liner glides over the lid and it will not skip over wrinkled areas. It is so simple to apply too. There was a time when a monkey could draw a better wing than me. That time wasn't too long ago. Since getting this liner, I feel like a pro. Now, it is actually fun and fast to do wings. I have oily skin and this doesn't smudge at all. However, it doesn't set right away. For me, it will set in about 5 minutes before it is budge proof. As for the color, this is definitely blackest black. A truly nice dark jet black. The finish, some of you might not like. It is a lacquer finish. So, you won't get a matte look with this. I personally like the lacquer finish. It is more of a satin finish than a glossy finish though. Lastly, I have to talk about the brush that is included. I love it! It allows you to do really thin lines or build to a thick line. The design is perfect for all eye shapes especially smaller eyes.

Eyeliner is a must in my every day makeup routine. I have tried every other gel eyeliner out there from hi-end to drugstore and I always come back to this one. It lasts all day (I work more than 12 hours everyday and at the end of the day this eyeliner still looks flawless on me), it goes on smoothly which makes the application super easy. The brush it comes with it's just perfect, my cat eye always comes out amazing. The pigmentation is awesome. I also have this gel in the Espresso and Dark Slate shades and they work just as great. The only con is that after a while, when the product is running out it dries in the container, making it difficult to apply it. Other than that, this is an amazing gel eyeliner.

i love this product. i tried wnw - pigmented but dried out too fast. looks cheap tho. maybelline - same as wnw. ebay $1 gel liner - what a waste! mac fluidline gel liner - not too pigmented, inglot amc 77 - transfers so much

and so i went back with loreal infallible gel liner. it has a good pigmentation, dries fairly quick on the eyes, minimal to none of transfer around.

bad thing: formulation dries up when it's about 1/2 empty, (but not as quick as wnw and maybelline). inglot duraline can extend for more uses but eventually it will dry up again.

i think the packaging is functional yet elegant, something that doesnt shout cheap-o when i show it around.

overall this a very good value. drugstore brand that truly beats the dept store one. 5 stars for me

This eyeliner and the Wet n Wild Fergie Creme Liner are the only ones that have managed to stay on my oily eyelids and waterline for more than an hour without smudging, and that's without the use of eye primer. This usually stays on for about 5 hours before I see some transfer on the bottom of my eyes. The brush that it comes with is AMAZING and so is the pigmentation, it's very opaque and black. I've had this for months and it's still very creamy.

This is my current everyday liner. It works great and was my first gel liner. It lasts a long time use-wise and the packaging is really elegant. It doesn't smudge, but I find it hard to put on my eyes without getting it all over my eyelashes (this is probably a technique problem rather than a product problem). Lasts all day.

Yikes. This must be a product that doesn't work on everyone. It truly is the blackest I've ever seen so far. But compared to the Navy color in this same product -- it doesn't hold up. It smudges to my lower water line, when I tightline with this. That is a deal breaker with me. I'm sure it will be beautiful as a liner, but I purchased this for tightlining the upper water line. Bummed.

Love this eyeliner. I have oily eyelids and it's very difficult for me to find an eyeliner that wont smudge or transfer under my eyebrows. This one is a winner for me. It's also very easy to apply with the brush it comes with or a different one, and is a fairly intense black color. The packaging looks very simple and classy, especially for a drugstore brand. I seem to have great luck with L'Oreal eye makeup. Would repurchase.

This liner is a very intense black however, I find that it doesn't hold up as well as other gel liners I have tried in the past. By mid day, my liner will smudge and I typically don't have this issue. Overall, I found this to be an okay eyeliner. It has finally dried up but I wouldn't repurchase.

I used to swear by liquid eyeliner and refused to use other liners (kohl, gel) but around 2.5 years ago I decided to give this a try and I've never turned back since. The price is great, and a little goes a long way for this liner. I wear eyeliner everyday and the jar lasts for such a long time. The brush is really good too, I never feel like I need to use something else. I believe I get better precision than with liquid eyeliner (which is easy to get really messy) and that it looks better than kohl, which always smudges and looks too sheer. This is the only eyeliner that doesn't smudge for me too other than Asian eyeliners I get form overseas. I like this so much that I have backups for when I run out because I can't go anywhere without this.

I really want to love it. This gel liner was my first one and I like most part of it. The packaging is elegant. The brush is amazing, the color is a very true black. The texture is so soft and it was a dream to apply...
Down side? Smudges on my outer corners in like 2 hours and makes my eyes really really itchy. Seriously now I don't blame it on that really (pretty much all the liners I tried smudges on my outer corners like crazy, even including those high end ones)...but I just wish it is long lasting.
Sadly I won't repurchase it...I still can use it (I can use this on my lid and then use a liquid one for the outer corner) but it is a bit too much effort...
Bottom line: I am keeping it but I don't love it.
