Best. eyeliner. ever!! This product goes on so smooth and glides across the eye like silk. I can apply this eyeliner at 6AM and it is still going strong at 11PM without any smearing. Thanks for an awesome product Bobbi!

I got this as a gift along with a set. I never used Bobbi Brown before but this product is totally awesome! It glides on so smoothly and it works for me. It stays on all day and I noticed that it doesnt smudge at all. I hate it when some eyeliners get on your eyelid after you put it on. Great product!

in a word? FABULOUS! i was skeptical about this stuff when the chanel SA told me that bobbi brown makes great eye liners that stay on. boy, she was right! the liner itself is not THAT expensive, but buying a brush definitely puts a dent in your wallet. i have only used bobbi brown's fine eye liner brush with this but i'm sure others will work too.

i must admit, putting it on definitely takes some getting used to. but about 99% of the time i get a great clean line. sometimes it ends up thicker than i want it to but i think that's just me being half asleep in the morning! i have oily eyelids, and it DOES NOT BUDGE! the colors are gorgeous, i have it in black ink (my second pot) and chocolate shimmer, and am deciding on my next color. *on a side note, i only use this on my top eyelid...i haven't tried it on the lashline at the bottom, so i can't really comment on how well it stays there*

the little jars last forever, but i must admit my last pot of black ink started to get a little bit dry after having it for about 8 months. i guess i should be keeping eye makeup around that long anyway! it was still usable but i found it a little bit harder to apply.

as a devoted eye liner user for the past 14 years, having tried many many many liners, i have officially found my HG =)

This eyeliner goes on beautifully - it's virtually impossible to misapply. I'm terrible at putting on liquid liners, and this one is SO easy to get perfect the first time. It is also easy to make thin or thick, depending on the occasion. I have had really good luck with it staying on all day. I wore it in my wedding and it looks great in my photos :-)
The one problem I have is that I hate having a black eyeliner soaked brush that gets on things that I have to clean after ever use. I wish they could find a way to make the liner in some application tool so no brush is required...
I use a MAC brush because it was a bit cheaper than the Bobbi Brown one.

This has lasted me almost 2 years now, and I think maybe I'm 2/3rds through the product. I use this basically every day I step foot out of the house, too. This is such a pure black, and you can be SO accurate with it if you have the right brush. I used a cheapo one from The Face Shop (concealer/lip liner brush) cause it was so small, but then I discovered the joys of the the bent eyeliner brush. Sure, my mum gave a shocked "why'd you buy a broken brush?!!" when she first saw it, but damn they work well with this liner. No more lashes getting poked into my eyeball by brush, that's for sure. And with this, this gel liner applies smooth and black.

back to the liner: I have oily lids that smudge liner everywhere. This product is fantastic - but I won't say it doesn't budge. It does, a little. The key to getting it to stay on stubborn oil lids has to be moderation. If you put too much on, it either won't dry, or will dry funny and within a few hours there'll be light smudging. So another thumbs up.

also great as a base. also waterline safe! always a plus. not to mention I wear glasses, and no problems with irritation like the stilla smudge pots

get this! or coastal scents gel liner if you're tight on cash - though I'm nt sure that's waterline safe.

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!!!!

the actual product, the gel isnt that expensive, just that the brush was dearer than than the actually liner annoyed me, but definitelt worth the money. i bought the mac 209 brush thinking that it was an eyeliner brush and cheaper so yeah. but i didnt get the result that i wanted (i make the liner thicker in the middle of my eye so that it makes my eye look bigger). and the MA did that to me, and the brush delievered, so i got that.

so yeah, it was a one off investment at the start, but i do recommend it!

the libner in itself is sooo great, the pigmentation is brilliopads, and staying power is just marvy! i dodnt budge! it doesnt take to loong to dry, which is good because im always in a hurry, so i swipe it and thats its ^_^

in terms of taking it off at night, for normal make-up removers it needs a bit or work, but it wipes straight off with an oil based one, such as the lancome bi-facil (sp?) or any other biphaseone.

at 13.50, its not too bad, since everything else in the uk is extremely expensive, just a few pounds more for sooo much difference, its definitely worth it!

UPDATE: i went into bobbi brown today to get a new colour, the dark saphire blue, and i was asking about the consitancy, and they told me that they recently changed the consitency of it, and its more watery now, which is the reason i dont use my purple as much, because it was a bit on the watery side....hmm..
changed the rating to a 4, i dunno if i want to get the blue now...

I have been a faithful user of this product for many years. Have seen the price of this gel eyeliner go from $18 to $21!! But it's so worth it! It doesn't smudge or BUDGE for the whole day. I have combination skin and quite oily eyelids. I moisturize first before i apply any eyemakeup. Have tried other brands like Stila or MAC's fluidlines but they can't compare. I suggest buying a brush at Target or somewhere, you don't need to buy the expensive twenty something dollar brush they offer at BB!!

The eyeliner doesn't flake either. For me, it lasts for a good 2 months. This is only because I wear heavy eyeliner on a daily basis.

i love this eyeliner so much! The only complaint I have is that I have to get my eyeliner brush out and wash it but with the results I get, it's definitely worth it. The pot I'm sure will last me a very very long time so the price in my mind is justified.
I think for this product, the brush you use will really change the results of application. For a thin eyeliner look, top and bottom I use a really flat thin brush and for smoky eyes I use a thicker, blunter brush but still it looks amazing. I adore this product and strongly advise buying it. I have it in Graphite Shimmer Ink and is a less harsh version of black really and i think would compliment any eye colour.

AMAZING. My only complaint is the price. For the price though it's kind of worth it... because it's smooth and pigmented and easy to use. It doesn't have that annoying dryness and chunkiness that MAC Fluidline does.. I now have this in Espresso, Black Ink, and Violet Ink, and will never go back to Fluidlines.

Love Love Love! I have never had my eyes so defined! It makes your eye color pop and your eye whites bright! Plus it lasts! Have it in graphite, black and choc shimmer. I just hope that they do not get dried out fast..
