Love this. It's a creamy consistency that stays. The brush that comes with it is great- it has enough substance to hold the product but soft enough to glide it on. It's black-black.
I much prefer this versus eye pencils that I have to drag on my delicate periorbital skin. This isn't too great for creating a "cat-eye" swoop- I leave that to the liquid liners, but it's great for general lining.

I usually buy stuff based on the reviews on here, and am disappointed. I must have weird skin or hair lol but this eyeliner is AMAZING! You can make it a thin line or smudge it with a q tip for a smokey look. It does not come off. I do not know how they do it, but give this a try!!

I have super oily lids. I was that girl that had raccoon eyes after 20 minutes of applying any eyeliner even with primer and bases. Pencil or Liquid. It would smear and transfer into my crease and/or smear right under my eye. It was a horrible mess. I heard this was a great alternative to MAC's black track.
I was able to wear this all day, even in the rain.
It's super black. It's creamy and you don't need much product. It comes with a tiny brush. My eyes are a little sensitive but as long as you clean the brush before you use it, it won't become hard and get flakes in your eyes. It's perfect for lining your waterline or in my case, fill in my top waterline to give the appearance of fuller lashes. (I have trich, I pull eyelashes :( )
I also have watery eyes. I rub my eyes a lot.
This product stays put.
It's difficult to remove if you mess up or want it off. You'll need a cleanser but this is a perfect liner for those will oily lids.

I am in the minority when it comes to this liner, but I really like this as an alternative to my Bobbi Brown's Gel Liner. It's black and it dries almost matte. I absolutely hate shiny liner. When I need extra staying power, I pack on black shadow on top, but I hardly ever need to do this. I find the staying power to be pretty excellent my lids. Though to be fair, I have normal skin and always use a primer. I am on my 2nd jar. I had to replace mine after a year and half. The jar was not done yet. It does dry out pretty quickly since you don't need a lot of this. But it's something I will live it and will continue to buy since it's a lot cheaper than BB's liner. I use an angled or flat liner, not the brush that comes with it, which is too thick and hard imo for delicate eye area. Retailed for about $11.99 at Walgreens.

well heres the thing if you DONT want to pay for MAC's fluid line in black track this is a good alternative the thing is .., it does get try after a few months . I have used this product n it stays on well with primer n if you want to make it last even longer set it with a black matted eye shadow, i use carbon by mac to set it n it stays all day. I own it in black n brown the black one is my second one because like i said.., it does get try no matter what n the product does not apply as smooth making you loose all control also DO NOT use the useless brush it comes with youll only hurt the delicate eye area needles to say i wont be buying it again will finally give in n buy the mac one see if its any better. Hope this helps.

I really regret buying this! If you want any control over where your eyeliner goes on your eyelid don't buy this eyeliner! The brush goes everywhere... I probably spent about about 20-25 minutes trying to perfect the eyeliner after I put it on because its so damn thick. This eyeliner was also wayyy too expensive for all that it is.

Loveee this stuff! Definitely beats the Maybelline eye studio gel liner because that one dried up so quickly... But i've had this for 4 months now and its still creamy and goes on very black!

When I first got this I loved it and thought it maybe my HG cream liner is was very dark black and stayed in place really good.It went on easy and i could do a thin or thick line.Then after just a few months it started to harden it was so hard to get on and it would get everywear.I was able to use it a little longer for a base for a super dark smokey eye, but after that it was just to dry to use at all. I had not even used half the jar , it was so upseting. I would not buy this agian because it just dries out to fast.

This eyeliner ruined my day. It is so thick and waxy which makes it a pain to work with....and no, this stuff isn't months old. I just bought it. Yeah, it's just the right black color but I'm stuck with semi jagged lines and burning eyes. I didn't even bother with the brush that came in the kit; I used my MAC 209 brush to apply this gunk with. I'm kicking myself for throwing out the receipt because instead of chucking it in the trash can I could have gotten my money back. Boo, it looks like I struck out again in the eyeliner department.

One of the worst eyeliners I have used. Texture is nice and creamy. Applies nicely. However it smeared everywhere within 1 hour. I have never had an eyeliner smear this much. I applied it just before going out and when I went to the bathroom I looked like a raccoon. It wasn't even hot or humid and i didn't apply it super thick. I don't know what happened. Next time I decide to stray from my HG (Kat Von D tattoo liner), i will do a trial run when I am hanging out around the house to avoid another embarrassing makeup disaster.

This was the first gel/creme eyeliner I purchased and I totally hated it. The consistency is way too thick so when you apply it it feels very heavy and irritated my eyes. Also its hard to apply and it doesn't stay long plus it flakes. Now I only use it as a eyeshadow base for smoky eye. There are much better gel/creme eyeliners out there in the market.

brush sucks, it's rough
really loved it at first because application was smooth
after a while, product starts to harden and becomes harder to apply and then halfway through the jar, i had to throw it out because it was too hard to use, and it was flaking off when applied

When I first bought this product I thought it was the best thing since sliced bread! I started replacing my MUFE Aqua pencil liner with this stuff because it was so dark and stayed put.
HOWEVER! I bought this in September and it's starting to dry out. It's upsetting because there's so much product left in the jar. Now it's flaky and it skips. So I tried putting on even more product, being the persistent thing I am, and even when I put it on my top lashes it runs down to my bottom lashes and becomes a giant mess! Needless to say, now it flakes throughout the day too.
Gah. I'll be trying maybelline's and Bobby Brown's liners soon.

I just bought this product in black and eggplant (on sale for 2nd at half price). At 10-12 bucks a pop this is relatively a lot for a drugstore make-up but I think (hope) it's worth it. Right away I noticed that there were different brushes in each package. The black liner had a sleek black bristled brush, and the eggplant came with a brown and blonde brush which wasn't as nice.
I used the eggplant liner first. I've never used a cream liner or anything that came in a pot before.. total newbie here. I was impressed at how easy it was to get a nice line. Once it was on, I couldn't tell it was purple. It just looked like a faded black line... After a few hours I checked my makeup and it was in place! no smears or clumps. I put the black on over it and it looked much more sharp and polished. As a novice I was even able to add a wing at the end. Sleek!

I bought this liner I while ago, it was my first cream liner. When I first got it I loved everything about it, except for the brush that came with it. The brush is really stiff and hurt my eyelids. Not too long after buying though the product started to dry out and became really hard to apply nicely. After that happened I put it down for a long while until I learned that you could reheat it in the microwave which I did. The product did not return completely back to the consistency it was before but it was a lot smoother. I'm moved to stila smudge pots for my eyes but found that this product worked really well for my eyebrows, which is what I still use it for.

I bought this more than a year ago and barely used it then because the brush that came with it was so stiff it hurt my eyes (I'm wondering if they really tested it at L'Oreal?). And yeah, I didn't have an extra liner brush because I didn't used to buy my own brushes. I recently tried it with the angled brush from The Body Shop and it works so much better! I didn't need to use a lot of product; the application was smooth and on my skin color, it appeared as a rich black. It's also pretty much the only eyeliner I can use on my lower lash line without irritation, tears and smudging (I have very sensitive eyes and it's always been impossible to apply anything on the lower line without looking like I hadn't slept for days with red eyes and all). Regarding the complaints about it drying within a few months, I agree, but it didn't seem to be an issue with the brush I used.
I'll probably buy it again, but I'll try to do so next time I go to the States... Less expensive than in Montreal.

Wipes the floor with Maybelline and Loreal Eyestudio. I wouldn't know about more expensive brands because I don't like to spend much on eye makeup.
This is a great liner. It goes on smoothly and stays on all day, although removing it requires some patience. I like the brush that comes with it, but it draws a pretty thick line, so if you're going for a subtler look you'll want to use a different brush. This is my favorite eyeliner that I own.

For anyone that likes the winged eyeliner look, this is a great alternative to liquid liner. This cream liner goes on smoothly and is very pigmented, so it's super easy to use and much faster than liqud liner. I'm surprised at alll the negative reviews, and the fact that so many people hate the little brush it comes. Although it would work great with a different liner brush, I actually like it and find it easy to use (but then again, I mastered liquid liner - without resting my elbow on anything - a long time ago, so that might make anything else seem easy). I like that it's rather stiff (but not hard) because it helps the line go on straight, and I like that it's angled because it's makes winging the liner a cinch. As for people saying the brush is pokey and hurts: the only times the brush has ever hurt me is when I haven't cleaned it well after use, and some of the product has dried and hardened on it. Make sure to keep it clean, and it shouldn't be much of an issue.
The longevity of this liner is excellent! No smudging, smearing, or fading. Yes, the removal of it isn't easy, but it's not much harder to remove than most waterproof eye products. Nothing some eye make-up remover ( for waterproof make-up) and a little vaseline won't remove.
It's true that this product dries out over time, but it has usually taken a couple of months of use before I notice any serious dryness, and that's that I use this liner a minimum of 3 times a week. Here's someting that's worked for me to restore creaminess: add a drop of baby oil to the liner and let it absorb over night, or simply mix it in with a toothpick; mixing it might make the liner look messy in the pot, but it should turn back into its creamy, heavily pigmented self.

Like many reviewers have said the brush that comes with this package is too thick, you could prob do some major damage to the sensitive skin around your eyelid, so i opted to use it as a brow brush, which works really nice. I got the black color & it's really pigmented. Thus, I normally don't wear this on a daily basis, bc it's too intense for a day at the office for me. Plus, i literally have to wash my brush every day bc it gets all stiffen up after every use (from the prod getting dried) which becomes annoying after a while. In addition, my pot dried up after a couple of months, at which point it was such a pain to get any product out. I need to scoop some out of the pot, warm it up on the back on my hand to get it creamy again, so i just tossed it away. Back to the pencils and liquid liner i go.
