UPDATE: duraline does work. Used it with one of the dark colors - Picasso and it stayed on. I was reading a review by xoaida which described how primer did help keep this on, so I decided to try again with WnW photofocus eye shadow primer (same ingredients as take on the day or picture perfect eye primer). It held up. Added two stars because the colors are gorgeous; it is easy to apply; and a small palette really does last forever. One reviewer did say that not all colors act in the same way. Note: I only use eyeliner on my upper lash line lid. ----------Original review I adore the packaging of this eyeliner so much that I bought it two times. Even the little brush is nice. The colors are fantastic also. The first purchase was when I was new to cream eye liner and I assumed the smudging was user error or my oily lids. (The liner would smudge before I left the house). The second time, i talked myself into buying it because I figured it would hold up if I used a good eye primer. not really. Used as cream eyeshadow. Meh.I also took a tip from another reviewer below to use the copper on my lips. It does stay reasonably well on the lips. Mainly I feel like it's a waste if I don't use it. I think the best use is to empty the palette of product and fill it with a bit of lipstick you do like. The case is fabulous; it closes securely AND is easy to open with one hand; it has a great mirror and great little brush. Note: I am wondering in INglot duraline will affix this liner in place.

The packaging was the nicest thing about this product. Unfortunately, you can't wear packaging! I was seduced by the idea of a whole pallette of eyeliners in one cute credit-card styled case. Hooray, I could just throw this in my makeup case when I travel and have all different shades at my fingertips!The reality was an expensive disappointment. The eyeliner went on faintly and splotchy, didn't show up well on my lids and either smudged or wore off (depending on the color) after 20 minutes. Keep in mind I'm a PPP (which means it takes a lot for color not to show up on me) and have dry/mature skin (so I don't have the excuse of oily lids) AND I wear eyeshadow primer; my eyeliner has absolutely no excuse for smearing or fading. I wound up pitching this in the trash can when I did some pre-move purging. There are other, better cream eyeliners (Bobbi Brown, MAC to name two) and I found this a waste of my money.

Lousy product. Wore off within half an hour and I don't have especially oily eyelids. It has better staying power if you use a primer/concealer and eye shadow. Still not worth it.

Hate. This is, like other reviewers have said, a smudging, smearing mess. It was close to $30 at a local drugstore, and some of the colours don't even show up very well. Even if I let this dry on my eyelids first before I blink, it migrates upwards within 15 minutes of application. Horrible. I would give it a zero if I could.The packaging is nice though.

First of all, I LOVE the packaging! So many options + a brush in the form of a credit card? AWESOME DESIGN! Second, most of these are colors that are pretty wearable (I bought the metallics palette). However, upon application, I was pretty disappointed. The colors were very muted, not vibrant or metallic at all. Secondly, what was barely there in the first place faded quickly.Smashbox, this is a great concept! I really wish there was a cream liner palette like this, but with the vibrancy and staying power of Urban Decay's 24/7 liners.

This liner has no staying power whatsoever. The colors would disappear from my eyes within hours and I don't have oily lids. Definitely not worth the $30+. There are lots of drugstore brands that work a lot better. Although the color selection looks nice, most of the colors looked exactly the same on me (I have medium-olive skin.)

this was a bad purchase and good thing I returned it. these liners last about an hour (unset) or about 2 hrs (set with powder). By the way, do you really use turquoise eyeliner on a regular basis? Is bright blue or shocking purple eyeliner appropriate for work, or for anywhere??? Pass this one up; it;'s a loser!

Worst cream liners ever. Do not purchase this it's a waist of money. Very difficult to apply, you need many strokes and even that just makes it frustrating at the end. Too bad because Smashbox has really good shadows. I think they need to work on the formula of their liners.

I own this palette in Metallic. Hands down, this is my favourite cream liner palette. When I am doing a simple liner look, I reach for this. I also come to this when I want to add a pop of colour to a neutral look. To me, the price is fair. Although when you open the palette, it does seem small, a little product goes a lot way. The liners are very creamy and smooth and I have found them easy to work with.To the people who claim that it melts off their face, I personally have not had this problem. This may come from the fact that I set my liner, which you have to with any cream product.A must-have! I keep repurchasing!

I really like how many different colors it comes with. Its expensive, yes, but you can get so many different looks with this one palette. It doesn't stay great unless you prime it.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
