WHY YOU SHOULD SKIP THIS PRODUCT
Do not be mistaken, this is a cream liner and not a gel liner. I had wanted to try this because A) I don’t have a cream liner and B) believe it or not but I don’t own a brown liner. However, with that being said, I will definitely not re-purchase a cream liner from the Sephora Collection ever again. I tested it out for a week and then returned it right away. The biggest problem I had with this cream liner is that there’s absolutely NO ROOM FOR ERROR! Maybe I still need practice with a cream liner, but honestly, it shouldn’t take me over 5 tries to get it right. I know I’m not a professional makeup artists, but I do paint on canvas so it shouldn’t be this difficult for me to draw a line on my eye. This liner is definitely not made for beginners.

Another thing that really bothered me a lot is that the liner didn’t last very long. It first goes on really pigmented but then it fades and I would need to re-apply. It also creased after a few hours. Not to mention, it smudged…a lot!


The good things about this liner are the colour payoff and the smoothness. As you can tell from the swatch, the liner is really pigmented, which I really liked when I had swatched it at Sephora. Also, because it is a cream liner it goes on so smoothly. As I am reading all the reviews on Sephora right now, it seems that there are so many people who rated this product with 4/5 stars. I’m quite shocked with the good ratings to be honest because even when I was returning it, the sale associates from Sephora had instantly told me to try the Stila Smudge Pots instead because she agreed that this cream liner doesn’t last. Overall, I am thoroughly disappointed in this liner even though it only cost $10.

RATING
Product (2/5) – It’s only good for its pigmentation and smoothness.
Cost (4/5)
Ease of Use (0/5)
Packaging (3/5) – The plastic jar makes the product look cheap when it’s compared to a glass jar. The Sephora logo is also a sticker that can be easily peeled off.
