I love the smooth glide of this gel liner with a good, firm liner brush. It has very good staying power, too. Give it a little smudge for a bit of a smoky look.
This is one of the best gel liners I've ever used. It's a really dark color and you can make the line as thick or thin as you want. Lasts all day.
I recently started using the Mac Blacktrack after having a Mac makeup artist suggest it to me. So far I am loving it! I really like how dense the color is as opposed to my normal pencil eyeliner. The Blacktrack makes one dark clean smooth solid line. It is much easier to use than a pencil and it has a prettier bolder look to it! I would recommend it to anyone!
This is probably the best gel liner i've ever purchased. It goes on so smoothly and unlike some others, it isn't dry. Once it's on, especially when i have UDPP on, it will last all day until i wash it off. It's also pretty good in water. Its not perfect and if you are completely going swimming for an hour or so it's probably not going to last, however, i find that if you just get in the pool and don't really submerge your face it may very well last. It also lasts well through intensive gym classes, days at the gym, and various other physical activities such as going for a walk.
A downside, however, is that its not totally black. When i use a different liner (such as UD 24/7 liquid liner in perversion) it looks much more intense. I don't really apply thinly either, however if you set it with a matte black shadow it should be okay. Also, during application it is really easy to smudge even when not trying to. After it is dry, smudging isn't so much of a problem.
Either way, through the good and bad, this is my favorite gel liner and I definitely recommend it!
when used with a push liner brush, this is such a breeze to use! it spreads so easily and dries up waterproof. i have really oily lids and other waterproof liners have not stood up to the oil in the way this product has. working really quickly, i use this as eye shadow, too--particularly using it for the outer "V". again, this has worked really well with my oily lids. when i use this, i don't feel the need to use any primer at all. and to top it off, although waterproof, this easily comes off even with my gentle cleanser: )
i just wish it came in a tube instead of the tub. i use a palette with this one and i don't feel so comfortable double-dipping my brush in the tub. i tried taking out a bit using a small spatula and putting it on the palette but aside from this being such a hassle, i was left with leftover i could no longer use (the gel hardens after a minute or so).
I was hesitant to try this because of the hefty price tag but I needed a good eyeliner that was easy to apply. First of all, this is not easy to apply at all. I can NEVER properly make a line with this stuff and it's not pigmented at all and not even dark black or anything. Next to that, it dried out very soon so now it's even less usable than before. Really don't see what's so great about this stuff.
I think MAC Fluidline is definitely easier to apply, more precise and stays longer than Bobby Brown's. I have Blacktrack and plans to get different color soon.
I was kind of wary to buy this at first because the jar was $20 but it's worth it because I've had it for SO long now and I'm only 1/3 or so through the jar.
I like the packaging cause it's sturdy! I've dropped it a few times and it didn't shatter or anything. And in my opinion it looks kind of cool ahha.
It stays on pretty well! But at the end of the day I feel like I need to add a layer on top of it to make it look nice again.
It does "dry" on your brush if you take too long which makes the brush hard to use... #makeup noobie problems
I like the application of this as it's very easy to apply to my upper lash line, however I'm not a fan of how it smudges onto the upper part of my eyelid, granted I have very oily eye lids but unless I use it with an eye shaddow primer it smudges onto the upper part of my eyelid very easily which is a definite con. However I love wearing it on my lower lash line and find it to last a very long time without smudging.
After hearing all the hype I was super excited to purchase this. It applies easily, you get a good amount of product and the packaging is great. The reason why I didn't like it is because it's not that black. And it fades terribly throughout the day, to the point that it looks gray, or like I smudged it out myself. I only kept it because it stays on my waterline without smudging. However, I would not recommend this or repurchase it. Ever. Not with the $15 price tag.
