I did not have a good experience with this eye cream. I found it to be quite harsh for my sensitive/oily combination type skin. This eye cream puffed out my eyes, not good, as it made my eyes puffier than normal. (It must do this to make wrinkles look smoother). It also accentuated dark circles instead of making them less noticeable, and it made my eyes look and feel tired/irritated. The fragrance contributed to this as well, eye cream should not have added fragrance! The other thing that was strange is that I had eyelash loss, as experienced by another reviewer here. Not sure whats going on with the eyelash loss as I had not experienced this before with any other eye cream. I always apply eye cream patting it in around the eye area and not too close to eyes, so I was not applying it near my eyelashes at all. The only good thing about this eye cream was that it was moisturising enough and did feel smooth. I lasted about 3 weeks trialing this and was so glad that I had only paid for a trial size sample, I am now using this for the lip area as not to waste it. It did not deliver and in fact made my eyes look worse. So for now its back to my Clinique Repairwear Eye Cream until I trial another brand. At least the puffiness and dark circles have gone and my eyes are no longer irritated.

I had purchased this eyeliner in BK999 in black going on the reviews on this site as I was looking for a perfect liquid eyeliner but I was somewhat disappointed. The colour was slightly shiny black (not matt) which was sometimes a bit too watery and upon application I had to go over the line to deepen the colour, also because of the shine it was difficult to see where the eyeliner had been applied. If a mistake is made the eyeliner is difficult to fix as it flakes off when you try to correct with a cotton bud. But having said that, the consistency of the liquid was relatively smooth and the pen easy to use to create a cat/winged eye look. Once applied though I found the line creased and flaked off easily especially in the corners of the eye pretty much straight away and did not stay on. This liquid eyeliner could be good for beginners as it is easy to apply with the pen but overall the quality is not the best.
I have tried a few gel eyeliners to use for my upper lashline and I found this one to be better than both Mac Fluidline and Bobbi Brown gel eyeliners. The colour is an opaque deep black and has good staying power which the others do not have. It dries quickly but is easy to use. I bought it together with the matching eyeliner brush which is very good. I use this to create a winged eye look. The only dissapointment is that it transfers to my upper eyelid but not a much as the other gel eyeliners, but I have this problem with all the gel eyeliners I have tried. Overall I think its a very good quality gel eyeliner for the price that you pay, as it is not too expensive. But I have found that liquid eyeliner is more suitable for my sixties winged eye look.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

I was quite disappointed with this product as it ended up on my upper eyelids giving me the panda eye look not long after application. Also its not very good for creating the cat eye as the ticks/wings tend to smudge/crease and disappear after a little while, so lasting power is not good and the colour is not a deep black. This is probably best to use for the smokey eye but not the sixties/retro winged eye. Mac Fluidline is better than Bobbi Brown eye gel and but not as good as Kate (Kanebo), which has more staying power. Overall will not use or buy again.
This is meant to be one of the best award winning gel eyeliners but I don't know how. I found it to be anything but what it claims. I have tried a few gel eyeliners (Mac Fluidline, Kate etc...) that were better and cheaper. It glided on quite nicely at the start but within minutes it had transferred to my upper eyelids. Then it smudged, streaked and just did not stay on where it should have. I created the cats eye look but the wings just disappeared. By the end of my night out I came home with panda eyes. Boy, was I not happy! I tried it again but had the same result. This eyeliner is quite expensive and did not live up to expectation, will not use again.

This is definately the best black liquid eyeliner on the market and my HG forever! I had wasted lots of money trying to find a suitable eyeliner both in liquid and gel from other brands and am glad I finally found this one. Although slightly on the expensive side its worth every penny for the quality. This is the only liquid eyeliner that did'nt flake, smudge or crease and lasts for hours on my eyes (even though I have a slightly oily eye area). It applies very smoothly in opaque matt black with a perfect texture, not watery and not thick either. The brush is great and easy to use (but could have been a touch shorter) and allows to create the perfect cats eye. If you need to touch up mistakes its easily done with a slight damp cotton bud, and comes off easily with cleanser when you are ready to take it off. Truly beautiful and perfect product, just love it and wish I had come across it sooner!
