When people say "I've literally tried EVERYTHING", they usually haven't. Or I suspect they haven't.
Well, believe me or don't but I've tried everything in terms of eyeliners: pencils, gels, cakes, liquids, damp shadow...I've also tried almost every brand out there: MAC, MUFE, Stila, Cover Girl, Revlon, Origins, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Almay, Neutrogena, Prestige, Milani, WnW, Bobbi Brown...you get the idea. I've also slathered on UDPP to no avail. No matter what I've tried, I've smudged.
Granted, I have oily lids. And granted, I'm not the world's best at eyeliner but come ON. Something's got to stay, right? Nope. Until now....
I don't know what possessed me to try this...well, yes I do. My Stila Smudgepot in Brown finally dried up and I thought I'd go this route not expecting ANY different results.
This shit does not move on me. I can't believe it. Waterline, tight line, regular line...I keep trying to break the thing down and haven't done it yet. I think there's two things at work here: the consistency and this miracle brush.
The consistency is creamy (thus my initial oh SURE reaction) but it makes line drawing for dummies super simple. And the brush is out of this world for me. It's short-handled, easily held, and pointed. I've always used an angle brush to apply liner but this little one beats all my MAC angles to hell and back. The only "complaint" I have regarding the entire product, and it's hardly a complaint, is that the bristles have to be softened before used in the gel...otherwise you'll get a nice dent and too much product.
This is perfection on wheels for me. Which means, of course, Maybelline will stop making it. Even the size of the product is great. While I appreciate large pots of product, for eyeliner gel, it just doesn't make sense. It's virtually impossible to use up a pot before it dries out and I'm no chemist. I've no interest in bringing a dead product back to life.
This was my first gel liner and I love it! I was looking to purchase the wet n wild or h.i.p gel liner but came across this one instead and it was only $7! This gel liner is really nice and creamy goes on really smooth and doesn't budge. I love the brush that comes with it also its really firm and stiff and helps with giving me a nice even precise line. I will definitely purchase again!
I bought this after I had no luck finding the gel liner from L'oreal. All I can say is, amazing! This product is so great, lasts all day, barely no smudging, hasn't dried out yet and it's my HG. Never will I ever go back to liquid or pencil liners. I highly recommend this!
This is my first gel eyeliner and i think it is amazing! it is very easy to apply with the brush that it came with and the brush is NOT useless at all, it is amazing! I bought it for a little big over $10 at Wal-Mart and I would definitly purchase this again! It lasts through out the day without smudging, 100x better than a pencil liner and alot easier to apply then gel liners!
I purchased this product yesteraday and I love it. I have tried so many different eyeliners and I can never seem to find one that has staying power, but this eyeliner is a dream for me, it lasted all day even on my water line. Most of the eyeliners that I have tried in the past say they are waterproof, but when I apply it to my waterline, it doesnt every last long at all, but with this eyeliner it goes beyond my expectations. Thankyou Maybelline I will be buying this product again
Update: I have had this for well over a year and I am just now seeing the bottom of it, its not dried out at all and still goes on just as beautiful as it did the very first day I purchased it. I want to add that I have used this eyeliner daily since I bought it, its great..
HG for me! .. This eyeliner is by far the best eyeliner i've ever used for my waterline! I put it on today and it's still going strong for 9hrs! love it and definitely recommend it! :)
I do like this product! I was debating if i should get this one, or Revlon Colorstay Liquid liner. I went with this one because it said it lasts 24 hours on the packaging and plus the reviews for this one were quite good! It glides on well and makes a very nice line. & I did stay on alll throughout my work shift without having to touch up (9hours)! I only wish there was a lid for the Eyeliner brush that it comes with. Oh well! Overall, it is a good product at a good price! I defiantly will re-buy.
Call me an eager beaver but straight after I read reviews for this product yesterday I went out and bought it today and I must say... it is HEAVENLY. I love how it glides on smoothly and comes with a surprisingly good eyeliner brush. When it says lasting... it really does mean lasting. It doesn't smudge no matter what which actually makes it quite difficult to remove. I personally don't wear eyeliner that often so as long as it stays put and perfect when I do, then it's fine by me. It's perfectly pigmented but you have to be careful when you apply it though - it take a short while to dry so try and refrain yourself from blinking too much because the liner may shift (which is what happened to me). Definitely will repurchase.
this stuff, is AMAZING! :)
I have used Bobbi Brown Gel liner AND Mac Fluidline (which was a dark gray on me when I chose blacktrack), and this one is the best- in terms of COLOR, INTENSITY, LASTING POWER.... I never knew Maybelline had such great eyeliner ! WILL CONTINUE TO BUY MORE.
The consistency is creamy, SMOOTH, glides on eyes perfectly...you would NOT believe this is drugstore makeup! It lasts all day too. When I wore MAC/BOBBI BROWN it would fade over time but this just STAYS. JUST. WOW.
Go get the intense black color. It's actually pitch black, unlike Bobbi Brown / MAC (which are WASTE of money)
