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..

I love eyeliner and this is my favourite. it is very easy to use with the brush and you get a precise line. It's not so good for doing smoky, smudgy eyes but definately the one for doing feline flicks. I use plum ink which is less scary than black.

As everyone else has said, this eyeliner lasts forever - both on the eye and the portion of product in the container. My favorite color is Black Plum Ink, which looks great with my green eyes. The color is very dark on, so it's not an obvious color, more of a subtle hint.

I used a toothpick to stir the product when it started to dry up, and it helped to renew the gel. I was afraid it would be weird or that was the end of the life expectancy, but I was pleasantly surprised! I apply it with a MAC 210 brush, and can get a fine line or a thick, dramatic line.

The color selection is better for me than the MAC Fluidline (which is a very similar product); I find the MACroviolet lighter and more shimmery than the BB Black Plum.

I also have BB in Black Ink and Espresso Ink; I recently ordered Black Mauve Shimmer Ink - I can't wait to try it!

I knew of this product for a long time and don't know why I waited to try it because it is THE BEST!! It goes on flawlessly, doesn't smear or smudge, and lasts all day.
