My thoughts

when i heard about this liner i wanted to try it asap bcoz i got tierd of my cake liner as it smudges in summer so i got it in midnight in paris which is a jet black matte color.although the liner is matte but u will notice micro silver shimmer in it.liner comes in a cute little glass jar wid a plastic lid and contains 3ml of the product so the quantity is quite enough. packaging isn't that bad but the jar is not sealed.

i found this liner richly pigmented and super creamy which makes the application easy.u dont have to struggle to get a precise line and no need to drag the brush over the lid as it glides smoothly.the liner is water proof and it stays put upto 12 hrs, it does not budge or smudge so oily lids aren't problem anymore.

as the liner is water proof, its hard to take it off even with a makeup remover. i tried to take it off with my cleanser but it was a mess i rubbed my eyes so hard that they got red n started itching. then i came up wid an idea and dabbed my eyes with some coconut oil and remove it with tissue paper and the liner came off with a single swipe no rubbing and scratching. so u ll have to use a oil based makeup remover to remove it or just try some coconut or olive oil it will work

i absolutely love this eyeliner. u can use it to creat any look u will also work on the water line and stays put for a long time.use angled liner brush to apply the liner
