I understand they discontinued the activator for this product, but all you need to make it perform perfectly is a little bit of ELF's lock and seal. Drop one drop in your eyeliner, mix it up and voila, perfect eyeliner that will stay on all day, glide on easily and not budge.

I have used this eyeliner for years and loved it -it was the only contact-friendly eyeliner that worked for me. However, Laura Mercier has recently discontinued the Tightline Activator - a solution that you drop into the eyeliner compact that turns it into eyeliner. Because they have discontinued the Tightline Activator, the instructions now tell you to use water with the eyeliner compact. Water does NOT work! It does not turn the eyeliner compact into a paste and it does not stay on your eyes.Laura Mercier has removed the main ingredient of the duo, thus rendering it useless. Do not waste your money!

About Me Classic Style
Comments about Tightline Cake Eye Liner:
I use this with water or MAC Fix+ and it stays beautifully. I have the charcoal and look forward to trying the blue and black. It goes on smoothly with a lot of color and if you want, you can smudge it and blend it a bit before it dries fully. And for me, once it dries it really stays put. I really wish there was a black-brown shade. Then I would never have to look for another eyeliner.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love the cake eyeliner, I use with just water.
from Portland, OR
I purchased the activator for the tight line eye liner and I did't care for it at all. I found it difficult to use and it made my LM brush so hard and glue like stiff, I had to purchase another brush to go back to using water. I also found it rendered my cake mascara useless unless I used the activator. I am keeping my stiff brush and hard cake eyeliner for use in travel to hot humid places like St. Louis, MO, ugh for use there.

Best eyeliner ever! Give your eyes an amazing POP
from Poulsbo Wa
I love to use this product on days I don't want to look made up but still want my eyes to have a sparkle. I just line them and put on a touch of mascara. Love it so easy.

I have used this product successfully with water for years!

About Me Natural Style
I love this product. It is the only eyeliner I have used for years. If you use this product with the flat-tip brush, I find it goes on easily and smoothly. My only caveat is that I have to draw the line twice - once for each eye and then go back and fill in again for a smooth dark line. I had bought the activator when it first came out, but decided it was not worth the money and that I did not need any extra chemicals near my eyes.

1 Star Product without the Activator
I used this product for about 4 years along with the activator. The liner stayed in place until I took it off. I loved it. Now that the activator is discontinued, I tried mixing with water. The liner irritates my eyes and eventually migrates into my tear ducts and under my lower lashes. My eyes get red and watery and that makes the liner run even more. It's not a pretty look.The makeup artist at LM tried to sell me brightener powder to "set" the area under my eyes so the liner wouldn't run. It didn't help.I switched to Nars gel liner and I'm very happy with my liner again. I did hear that Trish McEvoy makes an activator so if you still have the cake liner, maybe look for that?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Discontinued the Activator?!?! Now the cake is useless!
By Lola Lola
from Austin, TX
Anyone who says they can use it without the activator must be talking about a different product. This cake eyeliner doesn't work without the activator and now I have several cakes that are useless! I've gone back to MAC who makes great cake eyeliner to be used with water but it doesn't stay on like the LM one did. I'm so sad because after all these years of wearing liquid liner, I'd FINALLY found the holy grail of no smudge, long lasting, deep color that didn't fade, smudge or flake. :-(

LOVE!!! LOVE!!! LOVE!!! I've used this product for 10+ years
By Summer Girl
from St. Louis, MO
I am surprised to read the reviews about not being able to use this without the activator! I was taught to use this with water and have done so for over 10 years! While this does take some technique practice and replacing the applicator whenever the bristle start to flare out too much. (I only use the Laura Mercier flat eyeliner brush) I have never had an issue with this product being used with water. I love how it makes my eyelashes look thicker and it stays on all day without any irritation. Please do not discontinue this product!! It is the only one of its kind that I can find. However, if customers feel strongly about the activator perhaps it should be brought back!!

Get back the tighliner activator
from New York
This product used to be good when you use to sell the tight liner activator. Now it's the worst product.
from Wilmington, DE
I use the product as directed, with a damp Flat Eyeliner brush, nothing I can do keeps it from smudging.
