Rimmel Scandel Eyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner

I purchased this eyeliner in Ulta for $6.99 in hopes to find a good, long lasting liner that would not smudge or fade.  This is what they claim:  "Subtle or bold eyeliner look that lasts all day! Long lasting gel formula by Rimmel with Intense colour pigments. Applies easily with built-in brush applicator  Waterproof formula stays in place all day- won't budge or smudge!" 
Unfortunately This claim is completely false.  It was disappointing.  I even took extra time in the morning to apply a coat of black eyeshadow on top of it to make it last longer but this did not work :-(.  The shape of this liner is kind of weird too, the lid to the eyeliner has the brush attached to it like a snap on mini brush,  personally I did not find it convenient at all.  When applying this liner sometimes I would have to go over it a second time because the gel was kind of watery.  Rimmel is a good brand but I guess for this one specific product it turned out to be no good.
