this smudged on me! i have oily lids and i used almay amazing lasting concealer as a base and also tried benefit FYEye as a base but the BB eyeliner still smudged. would not repurchase especially since it cost almost $30CAD after taxes.
OMG!!! This is THE best eyeliner I've ever used. I'm too "mature" to wear a liquid eyeliner, pencils are too difficult to apply and wear off after a couple of hours. But BB gel can be smudged on with the BB brush (great brush - you need to buy it, too) and it stays on all day! I even smudge it under & between my lashes and I can't believe the difference it makes! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE BB gel eyeliner!!!
I have tried many so-called "waterproof" eye liners and have been disappointed by the their performance because they simply can't compete with my oily lids that will ultimately smear the stuff all over my lids - you know the look! I was reluctant with this product only because of the difficulty in it's application with the brush (which you need!), but I have to say, I am very happy! With practice you too can do it and you will be nothing but thrilled with the long-lasting coverage with no mixing of the product with your oily lids! It will only come off when you want it to - with remover. A bit on the expensive side, but there's nothing else out there competing with it - so BB has done it again - a great product that will always be part of my daily routine!
I own all of the gel liners except black. I am fair skinned with blonde hair and I don't usually go for true black in mascara or liner, it's too harsh. These liners are all very dark and work out perfectly for me. I like Sepia Ink for everyday wear. It's softer than Granite Ink (which I also adore, it's just a different color) and often I will just line my eyes really close and into my lash line with mascara for a simple everyday look. Sepia also is perfect for "earthy" colored shadows like brown and greens. The one liner I don't have yet, but it's on the way, is Bronze Shimmer. I just had to have it for my 35th birthday present to myself and I paid an exhorbitant amount on Ebay for it. As soon as I get it I will review it. I hope it is as spectacular as the other reviewers have said it is for the money I paid! :-) But anyway, in my review for Hunter Ink I describe how I use the BB liner brush. It took me a while to get the hang of it to create the right thickness of line. If you are interested in the info, check out my review of Hunter Ink.
What else can I say about this product except the fact that it's awesome?! I went to the counter, all ready to get it in Violet instead, wanting a more funky color but the counter was out of Violet and the MA suggested that I get Sepia and exchange it for Violet later so I could take advantage of the GWP. After hesitating, I decided to get Sepia and promised myself not to touch it until I exchanged it for Violet next week - however, the temptation was too irrestible and I decided to try a thin line on my lids. Man oh man, it was gorgeous! Less dramatic and more natural that Black, it was definitely worth keeping. Now to talk myself out of getting Violet . . .
After reading the reviews here, I decided to give this a try. And I am so glad I did! I tried it with the MAC 210 brush and got amazing results. Goes on very easy, lots of control with the brush. I believe I have found my HG of eyeliners.
This stuff blows Mac's cream eyeliner away.When they say indelable they mean it -this stuff really stays put.The color is a dark brown but I think it could be a little darker.I"ll probably try Granite next.
Wears off too quickly. The black BB gel eyeliner lasts much longer, though looks harsher.
I love this stuff. I don't believe that it took me so long to try it.
Sepia is a dark, dark brown, perfectly neutral. I would like it a bit warmer, but I won't complain. I would love it if BB would make a shade exactly like Trish's Deep Chesnut Definer, though, just for me. ; )
I found that if I used BB's Fine Liner brush or MAC 266, the line I got was thicker than I wanted. I might use one of those brushes for a dramatic nighttime look, but for daily wear I get the best results with a flat-ended push liner. This allows me to press the liner right into the bases of my lashes without a liquid liner look. I line my upper lashes first, then use whatever's leftover on the brush to do my lower lashes.
It lasts all day and some. And it hardly ever transfers onto my crease area - finally, no more halo effect.
I am hooked. I love the Bronze liner, too, for an even softer look.
ETA - I've dumped Sepia for Black Plum Ink. BP has the warmth that Sepia lacks, and makes my eyes glowier. If BP ceased to exist, I'd either go back to Sepia or try Espresso. continued >>
Believe the hype.. all those MUAers can't be wrong. I LOVE these gel liners.. and wonder why I took so long to get them. I use an artstore detailing brush and am very happy with the effect. The application is smooth, the color very easy to control and this stuff lasts!! On me (GGG, NC35) sepia is a rich brown black. I am so happy that I got 4 (including the Neimans LE)... I think I'll give up on liquid liners for now.
