This was a mess for me. I put it on with high hopes in the morning, went out for 2 hours and came back with a huge black mess around my eyes. Never used it again. This seriously does not work in warm weather. Maybe you'll have better luck in cold weather but why take the risk? Just get a better eyeliner.
I'm gonna try wearing it smudged next. Can't throw away a whole pot of eyeliner right. Hopefully the less you wear the less damage it can do...
awesome product, looks like liquid without the mess. can wear it alone or with a pencil liner (for smudging) this has become a must for me
this is my first gel eyeliner and immediately i love it. i love the texture and how easy it glides through my eye.
Ahh...yes, I finally found the Blackest Black!! I wanted to try this product since forever after reading all the amazing review about this eyeliner! It stays on all day on the eyelid and the waterline?? I had to try this then!
Well first, the product was pretty inexpensive, about $6-8 and was fairly happy with the results. Was it as amazing as the other reviews? No.
The eyeliner did fade on the other outer corners on my waterline, but it definitely stayed longer than any other eyeliners I've tried. When the eyeliner was fading, it did smudge a bit and was a bit disappointed. However, it only faded on the outer corners of my waterline and not my whole waterline. But when it fades, it becomes a huge mess! It collects into a black puddle on the inner and outer corners on my eye. I look like panda, a messy panda. Very unattractive. The waterproof claim is not true.
This eyeliner came with a brush and it is terrible. The brush was very stiff and hard. It also tickled my waterline when I was putting eyeliner on and this isn't the first time I'm using gel eyeliner. The formula didn't go on smooth or pigmented. Cause it was tickling me, my eyes were watering and it took me a longer time to finish my makeup. Because of this, I started using the brush that came with my L'Oreal gel eyeliner instead. It was a HUGE difference! The eyeliner went on waaay smoother and waay more pigmented.
Overall, I would buy this product again, but I want to try the Essence gel eyeliner since that one also have amazing reviews.
I bought this product cause i heard rave reviews online, I had very high hopes about this product it cost €11.99 in my local boots! I found the brush that comes with it to be very harsh on the skin. The liner itself is not creamy enough. It is very thick which means people like myself who wears false eyelashes when its applied it moves the lashes cause of the pressure you have to apply to the skin for the colour to come out. the best eyeliner i reccomend for people who wear false eyelashes would be "Maybeline gel liner" the brush that comes with that is amazing and its creamy enough to slide on to your lids and remain there for the night :)
I bought this one time, hated it, threw it away.
Recently I wanted a new liner brush and remember people raving about this one so I got it again for the brush. While I was at it, I decided to try the product again to see if I would like it.
Nope. Not at all.
The liner smudges. Simply put. It has no lasting power and I do not have oily lids. Tried it with primer, setting it, everything. No.
The brush it came with is not for me either. Perhaps because I prefer an angled brush but this one just got gunky too easily and I couldn't get a fluid line with this product or any other product I tried the brush with. Trashed both items again.
I have been using this for a couple of months now, and it really is a great gel eye liner. The colour is very good, great pigmentation. It doesn't smudge once its dry, dries fast. Lasts most of the day. I just find that when I do a winged line it starts to rub off ever so slightly at the end of the day but you can't really see that unless you look up very close. The packaging is good. The pot is solid and small to take with you, obviously you need a brush, with that being said if your planning to take an eye liner with you I'd recommend the pen ones. But, this is a great product overall, and unless your planning to stay out all day until late, you don't really need to retouch the eye liner. I don't wear make up all day but I do most of the day, and for me this works fine. One thing that's a bit of a pain in the ass is that once you've used this for a few months and you get to the bottom of the pot, the product has dried out a lot, and its very solid and hard to get on the brush ...but I just heat it up in a microwave before I use it so it's easy to work with again. I'm afraid you have to do this every second day if not everyday in the morning when you want to use it. Other than that, its a good product :)
This is the first gel eyeliner I've ever used and I'm happy! The formula is a medium thick consistency and lasts all day.
I actually prefer this gel eyeliner to mac. It has much better pigmentation, a thicker formula, and a much better price. That being said, it does tend to smudge throughout the day when I do a thick wing.
I bought this on a whim because Maybelline products were on sale at Ulta. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this. I have it in the brown color and I really like this, and will most likely buy it in black as well. The application of this is smooth, it's nicely pigmented, and it seems to have good lasting power (although I always use a primer with any eye makeup). I would also like to mention that the applicator brush that comes with it works well too, which is surprising as most brushes that come with cosmetics are of poor quality and don't work well. I would recommend this product to anyone.
