I find it doesn't last very long on it's own but I found a way around that by putting another gel liner on top and then it lasts for hours, I had bought a bunch of colorful liners but they wouldn't stay in my waterline but over top of this and they last for hours and it doesn't change the color of the colorful liner which I love. ...Great liner & great price!...Most liners leak down my eye but this one doesn’t.

It is much creamier than the pillow talk version of this liner for some reason. If you have green eyes this shade is especially great at making your eyes pop!...The only issue I have is the color is not what I expected.
