Not completely happy with this eyeliner. I do like how soft it is. Not tugging at the eye. The pigmentation is fabulous. However, I found it had a messy application with lots of fallout. It's texture is a lot like velvet, but the consistency is flaky and somewhat clumpy. It is very good for smudging though. It's staying power was not all day and about the same as my other favorite liners, 6-8 hours. It bled a little bit in the outer corner of eyes and also managed to find it's way down into the inner corners, smearing a bit by the afternoon. I have other cheaper liners that do not do this. I also ended up with a black smudge below my eyebrow, but I didn't use a primer. Now I know! I would definitely use a primer before putting this on. It transfers and slides very easy without some kind of base. I will continue to use it, but will not be purchasing a full-size.
