Like another reviewer here said, I am shocked by all the good reviews. I have been in search of this product for a long time because of all the good talk, and finally found it a couple days ago. I don't understand how people waterline with this liner, because no matter how hard I press or how many times I go over it there is NO color payoff. Even normal eye lining with this is difficult, the only way to get it to show up half decent is to just keep going back and forth and back and forth over the same spot. But by then you have an incredibly thick line with a slightly chunky texture. Despite all this, this liner really does stay put (even if I do have to really lay it on, it does not move once on you). It has it's pros and cons, but I am going to return this and I'll stick to my Milani Liquif'eye and Revlon Colorstay.
This is an awesomely versatile shade! I use it as a highlighter under the brow and on the cheeks, and a tad on the inner corner of my eyes. But you must be careful with this shade, it is extremely shimmery. I love it!

This stuff is awesome. I used this primer then applied some grey eyeshadow, later in the day I showered (I totally forgot I had it on! I don't wear makeup much), when I stepped out of the shower the eyeshadow was as perfect as it was when I first applied it. Crazy. The main reason I wanted to add another review to this product is the fact that the design of the container is so horrible. To my disappointment, I recently found out that I was COMPLETELY out of the product, and tried my best to get as much as I could out of that little bottle to no avail. Luckily I saved the bottle for some reason. And luckily I decieded to look up reviews here. Then a reviewer here linked to this blog: http://dblacknessmac.blogspot.com/2008/01/udpp-has-been-holdin-out.html I thought, what the heck, I'll try it. I got the EXACT SAME results as the picture shown in the blog. No kidding. Just had to spread the word.
If you use this product according to the instructions (two coats at first, then one coat every other day) then this stuff works awesomely. I've actually found that you only need to apply another coat about 3 times a week instead of every other day. The nail polish dries very quickly when applied. My nails are prone to peeling, and this is like liquid steel for them. As long as I make sure to apply it when needed, my nails grow beautifully. Without this stuff I cannot get them to grow much at all. Because of this it is worth the price, and will continue to buy this again and again, as I have been. The ONLY problem with this product is that when you near the end of the product, it gets veeerrryy sticky and dries as soon as it has contact with the air. This is to the point where it is unusable. This has happened with every bottle I have ever gotten, and am currently on my 4-5th bottle. Oh well...
My mother bought these from Costco in a pack of two, so I got one. Because of this I can't say anything about the price. The big, oddly shaped lid makes it slightly awkward to use. The bristles are made of plastic instead of the traditional kind bristles. The mascara itself doesn't do a whole lot when it comes to thickness. It does however make them nice and long. But the real problem is the flaking. This stuff flakes horribly on me. Almost right away it dries and if disturbed it flakes and goes everywhere x.x Because of this I am tempted to throw it away. Would never buy again.
