Ranked #620 out of 776 in Eye Liner

Description
Doesn't tug like a pencil, flake like a powder or run like a liquid. The innovative cream formula provides totally customizable eye definition. Wait 60 seconds for it to dry or immediately smudge with shadow for extra intensity. Apply with CREAM EYE LINER BRUSH #9 or ARCED LINER BRUSH #21 for perfectly defined eyes. CREAM EYE LINER can also be used as a cream shadow for a sexy smoky look. Best of Sephora Award Winner for Best Eye Liner.

Tips
For definition, use CREAM EYE LINER BRUSH #9 to pick up a small amount of liner and walk along lashline. Try using a shade that makes your eye color really stand out. (Blue eyes try a deep brown like MIDNIGHT BROWN or a green like MIDNIGHT GREEN, green eyes try a rich purple like MIDNIGHT PURPLE and brown eyes try a gold-flecked shade like IMAGE. A rich black like CAVIAR gives great definition and looks striking on all eye colors.) For a smoky look, apply CREAM EYE LINER (try IMAGE) all over lid up to crease using DEFINER BRUSH #15, then blend a powder shadow on top (try SIENNA) using CREASE BRUSH #10 to seal the color and give a soft, diffused effect.

Glides on perfectly and does not come off unless you want it to! Very flattering colour choices as well.

This eyeliner is the perfect size to carry in a purse for on the go touch-ups. It has great staying power and a really easy application with the little brush that it comes with.

too much smash-in-me-box
:Pricey at $27:

I think I OD-ed on Smashbox. I never LOVED the company to begin with, but when I went to get the Limitless Liner, I threw in a couple other things that piqued my interest.

How unfortunate that the only think I liked was said liner.

This is their cream eye liner in Midnight Brown:

It was average. For the price, I'd rather get MAC's Fluidline and spend less to sit above baseline. I sit prettiest on top.

Skip it.

I bought the eyeliner in a smash box kit. The eyeliner was exceptional. Went on clean and stayed where I put it. The little brush in the kit was great as we're the 8 colors that were included!

I too bought this product when the Shopping Channel had a pretty good deal on it (much cheaper than buying directly from Smashbox) I bought a palette (Proof) that has 10 of their popular colours in it. I was really excited to try the product, as I had heard so many great things about it.

I have to say, I don't know if maybe mine came from a bad batch or maybe I had a reaction to the product, but it really irritated my eyes, like stinging and just a general uncomfortable feeling. Also, the eyeliner never seemed to dry. It claims to dry quickly, and be smudge proof (once applied) and flake proof. While I didn't have flakes, I had major smudge (mainly because it never dried). I am glad that I also bought the cream eye liner brush, as the mini one that came with the palette was not very good and made application harder than it had to be. The full size brush however is fantastic!

All in all I was really disappointed and ended up just throwing it out. Waste of time and money. I don't recommend.

First of all, I am a makeup and clothes junkie...I have had to move my boyfriends things into the spare room because there just is not enough room in/on my dresser and closet for him. So out went the boy stuff...(no big loss).
Ok...the eyeliner...I have used Smashbox cream eyeliner in midnight green, catwalk, caviar and deep mauve. Prsonally, i find the green the best for showing up as a true strong line.
I love the idea of cream eyeliner because...listen up , while its still not too late.....the less pulling at/in the eye area , the better. All those years of pulling my lower eye down to put on pencil does show now that I am in my 40's. DONT DO IT!
My only real complaint is that, just like pencil, it wears out too quick for my liking. I like the way a good liquid liner will last all day/night.

I am in love with this eyeliner. I don't plan on ever buying another brand! It is usually around $28, but its worth it as it takes a long time to use up and it stays on all day. I have the black and the brown, the black is my favourite but the brown is great when you are looking for a more subtle look.

I love love love this eyeliner!!! It is expensive, but it is worth every penny! It stays in place, and with it's brush applicator, you can easily create a sharp, defined line, or a sexy smoky effect. There are many colors, and although I prefer the classic black, I recently bought the palette with 12 colors. It's great!!

I did buy the extra angle brush, instead of using the one that comes with the palette. It seems to be a lot better than the one that comes with it.

Smashbox usually has products that are easy to use and effective. I find that with this cream eyeliner it is hard to apply due to the texture of the product. It is almost like a very solid cream. It comes with an applicator brush, but the bristles feel a bit hard on the sensitive eye area. Either the eyeliner should be more creamier or the brush should be softer. The effect of the eyeliner is barely seen since the intensity of the colour is not enough. If you are looking for eyeliner I would suggest you go for a liquid.
