What got me into back
Tags +Bold Color, Smudgeable, Long wearing, controllable long lasting value
It was this eyeliner that got me hooked on MAC over ten years ago. A few years ago they got rid of it as "limited edition", which broke my heart, but then I found out they had it at Pro stores...so have been driving out of my way to get it until now.
This is an AMAZING eyeliner!!! You just add a little water - which allows you to control the "thickness" of its consistency depending on how much you add - a little water will make a thicker line vs more water will allow it to be more fluid/thin. ALSO - you can control the line depending on the brush you prefer - an angled bursh, thin eyeliner brush,etc.
I truly believe anyone that gives this anything under than 5 stars is due to the fact that they haven't "figured it out" yet. This isn't like eye liner's you find in drug stores or other make up brands, but its honestly amazing and lasts FOREVER.

Best. Liner. Ever.
Tags +Smudgeable, Long wearing, Bold Color
I used to wear Carbon with an angled brush and was very happy with that until I decided to try the creme liner. I am hooked and will never go back. Used with a little water, you get a precise line; without water and you get a smudgeable, smoky eye.

Black Liner
Tags +Long wearing, everyday
I heard so many things about this liner many moons ago but it was AFTER it was discontinued.As soon as I saw it was back I decided to try it. I LOVE IT! I love the fact that it is water activated so I can make a nice bold line just like liquid or gel but I don't have to worry about it drying out like so many of my other gel/liquid liners. I use it with my MAC 210 brush and it was a snap. I am going to get more as soon it is back in stock,Just in case it gets discontinued again. :)

Great Eye Liner
Tags +Bold Color, Long wearing
For me I find the best way to apply it is with a little of water. It is a great eye liner and it lasts all day (if you do not touch it) make sure if it rains it does not touch your eyes because your liner will smudge.

Not comparable to Mac Fluid Liner
Tags +the eyes
This product is okay. I mean it works but I still prefer Mac fluid liner.
The Pros- can be applied either dry or wet but I prefer damping my brush and applying it. It lasts pretty long but fluid liner stays on even longerr.

Never should have been discontinued to begin with
Tags +cats eye 50s-60s looks
This was my go-to eyeliner until it was discontinued in the standard MAC counter line when Fluidline came out. I hoarded a handful of them and when those ran out I was totally bummed. Fluidline kills my eyes but I've yet to have a problem with this stuff. Use it with a brush and a tiny bit of water -- you can get great control with this stuff once you master the consistency. I will put a pigment like Dak Soul over the top of it to give it a little pop for events.

Will Never Use Another!
Tags +Creamy, Color true, Long wearing, two in one, creme or gel, water activated, matte
I am in awe by this creme liner by MAC! I will never purchase another. I shall start by saying that I absolutely love the convenient and cute packaging. Using the liner as creme, it packs onto the brush perfectly, just in the right amount. It glides onto the eyelid so smoothly, a full black line in a lovely matte. The best feature of this liner is that it can be used as is, as a creme liner, or you can wet your liner brush and it is instantly a liquid/gel liner! Two in one! Can't go wrong with this and I would 100% recommend.

Great liner
Tags +Smudgeable, Long wearing, Bold Color, cateye liner
I love this liner, very smudgable to help create the perfect smoky eye. But if you add a little water on your brush it makes sharp defined lines. The only bad thing is I can't get it to stay put in my waterline, I like the fluidline liner instead. Other than that I'm very happy with this purchase.

This liner gives you much more control over the Gel Liner. I have the Fluid Line and I prefer this one 100%.

my favorite!
I've had this product for well over a year. I find that it is too dry to use on its own, but with a hint of fix +, this creme liner is fantastic. Goes on smooth and stays put..just make sure you let it dry a bit. I absolutely love this product!

My go-to eyeliner
Tags +Long wearing, everyday wear, special occasions
This product is honestly the only black eyeliner I use. You must use water or fix plus with it, but you can control how much product gets on your brush. Eyeliner goes on very thick or thin depending on the brush you use, I use the 210. Only downside is that this is not a "cry" proof eyeliner if you have a winged eye and rub it on accident. Overall, great product and will NOT dry out or go bad so it's worth the cost.

Does not last.
I love how this goes on, very smooth and easy. It dries quickly and it doesn't smudge once it's dry. However, it's not waterproof in the slightest, and it's gone by the end of the day.

So So
When I got this is was a little dried out and had to use a little fix plus to get the product on my brush. This cream liner is okay I dont like the finish of it I prefer a matte finish. This didn't dry quickly and smeared. Was very thin had to put three coats on to get the bold line that I wanted. I wont buy this again.

I wish this product was available at all the stores. This is my go to creme liner. Its so easy and fluid, makes getting the perfect liner that much easier.
Clients always ask me about it. My only wish is if it could come smudge proof.

I've tries many, many liners and none have ever compared to this one! I add a little drop of water to put it on and it dries perfectly. I've been using this liner for over 10 years. You can't beat this liner, trust me.

Best Liner Ever!

I am so glad MAC brought the creme liner back! This is the one item that I am hooked on. It has a rich color and is easy to use, with some practice. I may need to stock up just in case MAC decides to discontinue it again.

Where has this been all my life? Seriously!
Tags +Long wearing, Bold Color
Wow. This stuff is so awesome. I just use a little water on my brush, and line away. The liner lasts all day at work. I can't believe I'm just discovering this product now. I've worn black eyeliner for almost 20 years. I now know what I'll be wearing for the next 20!
This is one of the best make up products (if not the best) that I've ever used. I know that's a bold statement, but I will be purchasing this for friends and family who wear eyeliner for upcoming birthdays and holidays. I want to be sure to share the love of this fantastic and really well-priced product!
