Absolutely stunning violet color that makes my green eyes pop without screaming "purple eyeliner". I use it to tightline my upper and lower lashline, and I couldn't be happier with this eyeliner! After searching for a long time and spending a fair amount of $$, I've finally found my HG purple e/l. :)
Amazing staying power (I teach hot yoga, so I should know!), very easy to apply, and a true violet color that's not too blue or red. Awesome as tightliner for a subtle, daytime look. Easily built up into a thicker, more dramatic line for night with excellent color payoff. Worth every penny!
As others have stated this is not a gel eyeliner and as such it performs superbly. It is more liquid but creamy and that makes application a lot easier and it looks better than gel liners. I mainly use Bobbi Brown gel liners for the colours but they do appear heavy and gunky, likely to crack and overall don't look nice. This is a new generation and a great product. I have it in Canard which is a real grown up deep teal with a nice balance of blue to green. It is easy to wear so it won't look garish ever but will look particularly nice and tropical without going over the top on a hot summer's day. Yes day - this is not a "night only" shade. I will be purchasing more colours since I am so pleased with this product.
Love this eyeliner. I bought the violet. I did not need it as I had just bought a Bb gel eyeliner. But, once I tried it in the store I could not resist. Goes on like a dream. Soft, easy to work with. Color is beautiful, like a soft blackish violet. Doesn't feel like a tub of mascara lie some other gels do. So easy to work with. and lasts all day but still comes off easily with remover. Loved it so much, I had to buy the Noir even though I have bb in black! Now, thinking if I should go buy another!
This is the best creme/gel liner that I have used and I have used them all. It is a smooth wet consistenancy almost like liquid liner in creme form in a jar. It goes on beautifully and stays on all day. I can't rave enough about this.
Superb gel eyeliner that rivals other HE products I have tried. Formula and colour (Canard) are a dream. I will repurchase Canard when the time comes and will definitely pick up other shades.
The formula is a gel cream that is quite moist, creating a nice smooth consistency to work with. The texture is much softer than BB gel liners, which I find rather dry even when new. The consistency reminds me of some MAC fluidlines I have owned, but perhaps more gel-like. Pigmentation is excellent and intensity can be achieved without having to build up the product. The finish has a slight sheen to it when swatched, particularly the black. In the shade Canard I find the sheen barely visible on the eye, although I think it helps to give the turquoise a softer look.
A thin eyeliner brush is needed due to the wetness of the product. I first picked up the LM tightliner brush to try a tightline, but found the brush too thick and product too wet to tightliner with. This was my first try though, so I am sure the product can work well for tightlining with some practice. I found the BB eyeliner brush worked very well for my first try. I applied a thin line on the top and brushed a tiny amount of product on the lower lash line with the point of the brush to add tinge of colour. Once finished the application, I tried to smudge the line slightly but it wouldn't budge. I sometimes like to blend my gel liner slightly to soften the look. It seems as though I waited too long to smudge, as the liner sets quite quickly.
Once the liner set it didn't move or fade at all. I wore it for over twelve hours and it looked just as fresh at the end of the day as when I applied it. Best staying power of any gel liner I have tried!
Absolutely stunning! A gorgeous medium-dark teal shade that is intense yet very wearable for daytime. It evokes images of the Mediterranean Sea. The shade really makes my hazel eyes sparkle, though I imagine it would look beautiful with all eye colours. A unique and very flattering look that can be rather subtle if worn as the central focus with neutral makeup or as a beautiful compliment to a more dramatic evening look.
