L'Oreal Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner in Navy

Yes, I bought this L'Oreal navy gel liner over a year ago and am just now posting about it.  Of the three colors from the Infallible 24 Hr gel liners that I purchased, the navy one impressed me the least, although that's not to say it's bad.  It's just a bit more tempermental than the Slate and Bronze ones, which both performed nicely.
On the plus side, the gel has not dried out at all after a year, and I still like the brushes that come with the gel liners.  
Perhaps these swatches will give you an idea, as I found I needed to do a fair amount of reapplying on my eye in order to get an opaque line.  That also means more room for mistakes, as I am far from an expert liquid or gel liner user.  The finished result is not bad, and it wore well all day with no transfer or smudging.
I actually like how it looks with my blue eyes and should remember to wear it more often!  I'm wearing Maybelline's Color Tattoo cream shadow in Waves of White as a base shadow, with 2 mineral eye shadows in shades of gray on top.  Waves of White transformed them with that blue iridescence underneath, which made for a pretty look.  By the end of the day, however, my eye makeup had creased more than usual, which I'm attributing to the slip which is more evident in Waves of White than some of the earlier Color Tattoos. 
The Infallible gel liners are $9.99 and come in five colors.  You can see my reviews of Dark Slate here and Bronze here.  Gel liners are really great for the hot weather months, as I find they last much better than my pencil liners in the heat and humidity.  Do you have a favorite gel liner that you recommend?

Disclaimer:  I purchased this.
