the problem i have with eyeliner (all kinds: liquid, pencil, gel, etc.) is that, somehow, they all like to migrate down to my lower lids (even the Bobby Brown gel liner). if left unwiped, i basically end up looking like a panda by
the end of the night midday. so, i decided to try the "1-Day Tattoo." i actually saw this eyeliner at the TOP 10 store when i was in Japan last winter. i was curious about it then but didn't end up buying it. at the time, i thought it would be just like putting Sharpie on your face because it didn't erase or smudge when i tested it on my hand. maybe it is like Sharpie but just non-toxic..? either way, i finally decided to quench my curiosity and try it out.
current status: 10 hours -- no panda face. WHOA! i don't think i can go 24 hours because that is just gross. overall, i can officially say that i am impressed. i've found my new HG eyeliner! i would post a pic but i look horrible right now.

Flake/No Flake?: no flake BUT if you rub later in the day (and have oily lids), it might rub off a little bit, but this is TOTALLY not like the typical waterproof cracking/flaking that happens with other waterproof liquid liners. this liner goes on so thin on application. you might even have to layer it on if you want that thick don't-f*ck-w/me look. hehe
Removal: surprisingly, it comes off pretty well w/ a little bit of face soap and water. so here's the recap. it doesn't run down your face even if you have oily lids (like i do). if you don't touch it, it doesn't smudge at all. but if you wanna take it off, just wash it off like you normally do. voila!
Where to Buy: i bought mine @ life plaza in hacienda but i've seen it at japanese goody shops. =) you might want to try marukai (not nijia), but only if it's a big one.
