This is my first time trying gel liner. I've always used pencil, liquid, or black eyeshadow to line my eyes. I really like this and I am glad I gave it a try. It stays put all day and it looks incredible. I also like how easy it is to make a thin or thick line, depending on what I want that day. I think I just might be converting to gel liner now.
Best gel liner I've ever tried :-) loving it
I usually repurchase the maybelline studio eye gel liner but i saw this and decided to give it ago and luckily i did because im in love! here's some of the pros and cons
the formula is so creamy and glides on so smooth
i got mine in black which is really dark unlike other eyeliners that can come off greyish
i had no problem with smudging
at the end of the day it looks as good as when i applied it in the morning
I have none! only complaint is that it was pretty expensive $25AUD but i still think this is my HG!
I love this product. I read a lot it reviews about it smudging but i didn't have that problem and it last all day.
Great product! I don't tend to wear black liquid or gel liner because it feels to bold or stark next to my pale skin. Instead, I usually use a black pencil I can smudge or a dark grey gel liner. But, sometimes I want a bold look. So, after loving this gel liner in Dark Slate, I purchased Blackest Black. It's a nice really dark black. It doesn't budge or flake on me. It applies smoothly and evenly. I certainly don't use this one as often as the my other one but, it's a great product to have on hand. I recommend it to anyone who likes to wear black gel or liquid liner.
I really like this gel eyeliner but when I compare it to the Maybelline gel eyeliner its not the same. I find that the L'oreal one tends to smudge at the bottom of my eye and the Maybelline one doesn't. Other than that It does last for quite some time but I'm not sure if ill buy it again. I might as well buy either Maybelline or MAC.
Bought this for a little over $9 w a BOGO deal at rite aid. Pretty good drugstore gel liner for my oily lids which are crease prone for eyeshadow without my urban decay primer potion. Works much better and is much darker than MAC fluid line. I really like this liner and would repurchase If I ever run out.
Tip: do not touch up liner with an angle brush if its already dried or else it will flake! I lined my upper lid in the morning for a daytime look. Then I got home and decided to draw a thicker line over it before I went clubbing that night. It flaked. Use a liquid liner to thicken lines or any winged liner to avoid the gel liner from flaking.
I don't love this or hate it..
I've been on the hunt to find a replacement for my HIP liner since it was discontinued....but this isn't it=(
This liner is nicely pigmented,goes on nice and smooth......my only issue is its staying power!
After a few hours this stuff fades on me and on occasion it gives me raccoon eyes.
The brush was ok..I was able to cut it on a angle to how I like it.
I love this product. Before this product, I was using pencil liners (the Sephora kohl pencil liner as my HG) and I decided I wanted to try to switch to something that didn't smear as much. With that, I bought three gel liners: the Sephora water proof one, the Maybelline one, and this one. I have to say that out of all three, this one has the best texture and consistency. I like this brush a lot better than the one that the Maybelline eyeliner comes with (the Sephora one didn't come with one) and I have to say that for the price, this is a lot better than the Mac Fluidline that I already had. When it says blackest black, it means blackest black. It's darker than Mac's noticeably. It also doesn't smudge on me and it stays on my waterline for a quite a big (again, longer than the others did) and I've worn it up to over 12 hours a day before and it was fine. I use the brush that comes with it because I find that's the easiest way to apply it for me. My HG eyeliner!
I have been using MAC fluidline as my go to gel liner, but wished it was a bit blacker, so decided to give this a try. I have to say I was disappointed. As someone with deep-set eyes, I have problems with eyeliners and mascaras smudging if they are not the right formula. While this liner did apply nice and creamy, it was only marginally blacker than fluidline and definitely did not have the staying power. I had raccoon eyes by the afternoon. This is not a problem I have at all with Fluidline, and considering the L'oreal is only 2.3g compared to Fluidline's 3g, the price is only marginally better. I may be trying Tarte's Amazonian Clay liner in black soon, I have it in Blackened Plum and have zero problems with smudging. Please keep in mind, if you do not frequently have smudging issues because of your eye shape/positioning, this product could very well work for you, but I would not recommend it for other girls like me.
