This liner gives me raccoon eyes within two hours no matter what I do: prep eyes, less product, set with powder, etc. Disappointing.
I had Bobbi Brown's Sepia Ink for years until it finally dried out. Needed another basic brown eyeliner for day. Reading that this one has a bit of shimmer, I thought it would add a little "something different" (it's so boring just buying brown eyeliner!) I bought this online and was worried it would be TOO shimmery, but needn't have. It's very subtle and suitable for work for my nearly-50 eyes. I have green eyes, and it highlights them nicely, but I think it would look *spectacular* on blue eyes. The brown is neutral--neither too warm nor too cool--and "chocolate" exactly as described. Lasts and lasts--at least on the top lid. As I get older I find that nothing stays on the lower lashline without migrating into my fine lines (boo). Packaging--solid, tasteful, classy like all BB stuff. Overall, a strong winner.
I love this color! I've got dark brown eyes, NC20/25 black hair/asian. This is just a really natural looking,subtle eyeliner.My only con is that it doesn't last as long as I would like. It tends to fade before I finish the day at work.
The best ever - the color is really pretty and it has amazing staying power (all day and night). One little pot also lasts forever - although after a while it does start drying out which makes it a little more difficult to apply but it still stays on. I will never use another liner. The price is totally worth it.
I really wanted to love this because I was hoping I would be able to notice some shimmer in it but after applying, it looked like a basic brown gel liner. I would highly recommend trying Maybelline's Eye Studio Lasting Drama gel liner in brown instead of this. It is longwearing, smudge proof and much less expensive! The packaging is also very similar as well.
Blackened brown base with bronzey-red shimmers. Texture is a bit harder than my older BB gel liner, not sure why. I use this for warm/neutral looks and Black Mauve Shimmer for cool/neutral looks. Love.
Went into Nordstrom with the intention of buying the Caviar gel eyeliner. I have black hair with graying streaks, medium brown eyes.
Was steered towards the chocolate shimmer and I must admit that the chocolate shimmer is perfect. Although this eyeliner is a little on the pricey side, the fact that it stays on until removed with eye makeup remover makes it worth every penny.
I love. I was so impressed with this product. Normally, I do not wear eyeliner at all because I just cannot get it to work for me. I need a super thin line because there is very little space between the fold of my eye and my lashline. Any line that is too thick or too dark just makes me look odd. I've tried pencil, I've tried liquid, but I've never tried gel liner, and I just love this one. It is the easiest to apply (I use Sephora's Professionnel Angled Liner/Eyeliner Brush #15 which makes a perfect thin line which I can get right next to my lashline) and the color is great. Much softer than a black but still dramatic enough. Also, staying power is great! Lasted all day long, even throughout my sweaty martial arts workout! HG.
This is a dark shimmery chocolate brown gel e/l. I wear dark green contacts and this color does some amazing things to my eyes. This is my second most used gel liner (1st is my HG MAC Nightfish FL) and have gone through about 1/2 the jar already in less than a year. This has even passed my cry test too! It stayed put when I was upset! Yay! Its not as creamy I find as some of my Fluidlines though but it works just as well, maybe even better! Would definitely rebuy this when it is finished.
Don't be put off by the description on the Bobbi Brown website which says this is a 'dark red brown'. Red-toned colours make my (and a lot of people's) eyes look tired, but in my opinion this has no red tones, although it's definitely warm. If anything, I would say that it's a medium/dark bronze-brown - not as harsh or intense as Black Ink or Espresso, but still more than enough to define the eyes. The colour is buildable too. This ink also has a noticeable bronze shimmer, which helps to brighten my eyelids. It really is a lovely unique colour for a liner. I much prefer Bobbi's shimmer inks to the normal inks, which can look a bit flat. Staying power, as always for these, is phenomenal.
