Love this product. I bought this on the recommendation of the saleslady at Sephora. I was freaked out on the price since I have never spent $18-19 on a bottle of eye makeup remover before. I find Clinique Take the day Off makeup remover works best with pads rather than cotton balls as you use less product. It dissolves waterproof eyeliner in seconds with no lingering film. I follow this with soap and water, and a thorough rinsing with water. The next day there is minimal residue if any in the corners of my eyes. I used to buy drugstore eye make up removers and avoided wearing waterproof eye makeup because waterproof makeup remover was usually overly greasy and difficult to remove. It would leave me with hazy vision and lots of crap in the corner of my eyes the next day. I truly believe you get what you pay for with this product, and won't be buying cheap drug store removers again.
Eyeliner -Stila - Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

After having problems with the Sephora eyeliner running, I asked somebody who worked in the store who Obviously Knew her liquid eyeliners. Her eyes were perfectly lined with a really large and perfect pair of wings. She recommended The Stila All Day Waterproof Liquid eyeliner, and this stuff is great. I can yawn with no running of my liner. If I need a nap, no problem my liner still looks great. It is easy to apply. Looks great all day. Liner doesn't budge until you hit it with waterproof eye makeup remover, specifically Clinique take the day off remover (also recommended by sales woman who knew her liquid liners).
This eyeliner is easy to apply, not too expensive, but I wouldn't buy it again. All have to do is yawn, and my eyes tear up a little, and my liner starts heading south to raccoon-ville. This is all with liner on my top lashes only.
I bought this a long time ago, didn't use it much, and recently brought it out of retirement. I get tons of compliments when I use this in my crease and blend it into Vapor on my browbone. I use Flash as a lid color and it works really well with lust. They really should bring this shade back or something similar.
I have been getting tons of compliments ever since I started using this as a brow highlight and to highlight by my tearducts. It turns a deep sparkly blue when you apply it over 24-7 glide on eyeliner in zero.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero

I love the 24-7 Glide-on eye pencil in zero. I usually blend it with whatever shadow I am using and have had no problems with smudging. I usually do a heavy line on my top lid. On my lower lid I do a light line on the outer third that I blend and soften with eyeshadow.
