************************PLEASE CLICK CONTINUED. THIS REVIEW CONTAINS A PIC***********************************
What this is: Kanebo released this in 2007, as part of the spring collection I believe. It is a gel liner, not as creamy as MAC's, not as dry as Stila's. I haven't tried BB's or Clinique's to compare. It dries down really fast into a 'powder', as it's not that creamy to begin with. I find this decently-very well pigmented. It stays on my rather oily lids (which even Fluidlines fade on without base/powder).

Packaging: This is packaged in a jar reminescent of fluidlines, but it is smaller and the amount given is also smaller. This doesn't matter as you need very little. Kanebo also gives you a brush with the liner as you purchase. The brush is handy and I use it for all gel liners I use now.

Price: This is about 11USD retail price, but if you order online sometimes it is cheaper (ebay) or more expensive (other online sites). I purchased this retail in Taiwan.

Other Comments: Unlike Fluidlines, I don't think you could use this as a base for other eyeshadow colors because it simply wouldn't work like that.

BK-1: basic matte black
BK-2: Black with silver shimmer
BR-1: a golden brown with golden shimmer
PU-1 (discontinued): Purpley blue, rather dark and cool toned
PU-2: I don't have this but I believe it is similar to Macroviolet, a warm toned purple

SPRING '08 Collection:
GD-1: metallicy gold
SV-1: metallicy silver
BK-3: black with multi colored shimmer

Would I buy this again? Definitely! I already am planning to buy the rest of the colors I don't own!!
