This is currently my favorite go to eyeliner. It's very creamy and easy to apply and it does not budge. I have black, bronze and my latest is green. This morning I used it as a shadow base like the Maybelline color tattoos and put a pretty shadow over it....awesome look! The brush you get with it is a really good brush too. One end lines and the other smudges. I can't say enough good things about this liner.
I got this on HauteLook recently and the reviews were really good. So far I have only tried the brown and it's ok but it takes a long time to get a good coat on my lashes. Once it's on I have no problem with it at all. I don't recall having problems removing it either. I think I'll have better luck, as far as coating my lashes, with the black one.
Eye Makeup Remover -Flirt - See-Ya Eye Makeup Remover

I got this at Kohl's (the only place that sells it in retail other than online) and it was packaged with some other product that I don't recall but it wasn't the mascara that its being sold with now. I am in love with this stuff. I haven't used a lot of eye makeup removers but this is my go to for now. It is very gentle on the eyes. It never stings and it does the job. One bottle lasts a long time too. I got mine almost a year ago I think and I still have probably half a bottle left. I found it on E bay and have 3 more bottles coming, that's how much I love this stuff and I would recommend it to anyone. You can buy it at kohls.com but it's $10! I got a set of 2 of them with mascaras on Ebay for $13.50! Couldn't pass that up. Check this stuff out ladies. You won't regret it.
I think I'm done buying these. Compared to others like red cherry or ardell, these are so much harder to manage. The band is WAY too stiff so they end up lifting on me, even with Duo glue. I did purchase a set that comes with a full and a half set. We will see if they are any different. I'll probably cut them in half and use them on the outer lid so they don't go to waste but I don't think I'll buy more til they improve the band.
I love this product so much that I have been buying them up for Christmas gifts. Can't wait to share the love and hopefully bring on so new elf fans.
As said by others, this product does tend to dry out quickly or it comes right out of the packaging dry. I have had the purple one in my stash drawer for a long time and just opened it yesterday. It went on fine this morning and didn't seem dry at all. I also have the brown one and it's not dry either so maybe it's just the black one that ends up drying out, though not sure why it would just be that color. After wearing the purple all day (going on 12 hours now) it's still in place. The only smudging is in the outer corner where all of my eyeliner smudges by the end of the day so I won't discount this for doing that. I think for the price it's a good choice.
