After almost giving up and facing that all black eye liners fade and flake after a few hours of wear , I finally found one that didn't and had the added benefit of being cruelty free !. I wear winged eyeliner everyday and have always found that the wings begin fading after a few hours and the line begins to crumble with time also ( i was previously using Collection 2000 Fast Stroke Eyeliner) then I found NYX gel liner and smudger (I brought this liner in jet black). I opened the packaging and noticed that the pot of eyeliner was similar looks wise to "maybelline lasting drama gel eyeliner" pot however the NYX eyeliner did not provide a brush ( the eyeliner brush can be bought separately !). I first used my "Crown C432 Flat Line Definer" and found the gel really firm and hard to work with. I then used "The body shop's slanted brush" which worked so much better. The eyeliner was highly pigmented and had a creamy smooth texture when being applied. Any mistakes that were made during the application where also easily fixed as the formula is "smudgeable".I found that the eyeliner took a little while to dry but did not transfer while it was drying.once set the eyeliner is perfect !, it is smudge proof and waterproof and lasts all day and night !. I have literally been out with this eyeliner on, gone to a party, slept and this eyeliner is still in place in the morning !.I would highly recommend this eyeliner to anyone that is looking for an eyeliner that doesn't need to be re applied a million times a day and is looking for a cruelty free brand that is inexpensive.

I use gel liner everyday and I use all different brands from MAC, Bobbi Brown to Maybelline and L'Oreal. The reviews for this were not great so I passed it over everytime I was in Ulta. Finally I used a $5 off coupon and thought since it would only be $4.99 I would give it a try. I got dark brown which on me looks more like an ashy dark gray. I really like the color. The application is a bit tricky. I had to use a very small amount on my MAC 210 fine liner brush. This is a very slick consistency, very easy to get too much on and have it kind of run like a liquid liner can. One nice thing is that you can get a very nice soft line by smudging it. Most gel liner dry so fast that smudging the line out makes it clump and flake. This liner can give a dark crisp line or be softened and blended down for a smokey affect. It does take longer to dry than any gel or cream liner I have used but with a little experimentation you can get a number of looks from this one little pot. This wears as well as Maybelline gel liner but not quite as long as MAC which is the longest wearing one on the planet.All in all I would say give this little liner a try...it takes time to figure it out but for the price it is a great liner.

This liner skipped on me no matter what brush I tried, resulting in uneven lines that couldn't be salvaged my anything but my liquid liner. I'll stick with liquid.

The only problem with the eyeliner for me was how too easily it smudges even after hours on. For instance, when I do cat eye, it gets in the edges of my crease when I blink. In places it shouldn't be. I think they should try to improve staying power.Either that, or use a separate line dedicated to just liner, not smudger. This product is useful for a base for a smokey eye.The texture is very, very creamy which I like.It just never fully dries, though. Someone gave me a rough hug hours after I put on the liner, and it lost some of its color to their skin.

I purchased NYX Gel Liner and Smudger in the Scarlette shade (deep brown) at Ulta because I had tried every other drugstore gel liner in brown and none were a deep enough shade for my liking. This little pot came in a box and had a plastic and Styrofoam seal under the lid. Once I opened it, I applied it with the brush from my L'Oreal gel eyeliner and it went on perfectly smooth, not dry or crumbly. This liner did not skip, and the shade is perfect for me to wear with black mascara. The best part of this eyeliner is that it does not fade all day and stays as vibrant and pigmented as it did when I applied it. Most gel liners fade from my lids by the end of the workday and this liner has not yet faded. I have to scrub it off my eyelids with makeup remover when I take off my makeup because it refuses to budge (which is a good thing, in my opinion!) I am sad that I waited so long to try this product because I love most everything else NYX has put out and I had this product in my hand several times at Ulta but just kept putting it back on the shelf. This has become my holy grail gel eyeliner!Definitely planning to repurchase, and to purchase multiple colors!

I have no complaints about this liner! At least the black one. As far as I'm concerned, I'm getting the same quality of MACs Fluidline gel liner for half the price! Maybe even better as the NYX gel liner is "smudgable" and thus slightly less mistake proof (mistakes are easy to fix). Great gel liner for the price!

Purchased this mostly to see how it would compare to Bobbi Brown's Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner. Definitely did not go into it expecting it would perform as well, but it did not completely suck either. I purchased the cobalt blue NYX and the color is very nice and really shows up in a perfect cobalt hue, unlike some of my Bobbi Brown gels which sometimes appear nearly black in certain lighting. Even opening a brand new jar of the NYX Gel, the product itself seemed a little dry as I worked my brush in the jar. It does not apply quite as smoothly as the Bobbi Brown, and I can tell it will probably dry up long before the higher end gel liners. But NYX does recommend storing it upside down, which I will try to see if the initial dryness was caused by it being kept right side up on the display at the drug store. The NYX color lasted a long time and it did not smudge or transfer once it had time to set. Even though it's less than half the price of the Bobbi Brown, I don't think I would purchase again as I feel like this will dry out in the jar much faster than the HE stuff.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
