I've been using this since it first came out! I love it! It really goes on quite black and smooth and doesn't smear as much as a pencil. You can still blend it out. smudging it isn't as easy as a nice kajal pencil but defiantly doable and it doesn't go out too thin (a la e.l.f. the elf is okay but i definitely prefer maybelline!)
still, it doesn't stay on completely smudge proof, especially if you have hood eyelids. another plus is the fabulous brush that comes with it. if you don't have many brushes, this is such a good investment because it doesn't come with a crappy throw away brush but a nice brush that can pack on quite a bit of the liner and get in the base of your lashes because it isn't too large. the packaging is surprisingly nice as well; it's not cheap plastic and has some weight to it. overall, a product that's so worth trying out!
Stay good on the waterline
Dry super super super fast
Hard to remove
At the end of the day, it fades. and melts off my eyes.
I just didn't have a very good relationship with this product, love hate kind of thing.
Amazing...buy it....great product...beautiful results...nuff said.
UPDATE: HATE IT~! Too hard to work with....pain in the butt...not using anymore...waste of $$$.
I wanted so so so so so badly to love this. I don't know where all these good review are coming from. Yes the price is fantastic but.. this will transfer and crease so quickly, even if I set it. Super dissappointed.
I got the very chocolately brown color and it was very smooth but it irritated my lashline and seemed to fade/smudge. I have better staying power (and no irritation) by using the Maybelline tatoo eyeshadow in Tough as Taupe as a soft liner then drawing over it with a liner pencil to darken. Returned it.
I was pretty thrilled with it at first. Applied like a dream, true bold black, nice packaging, fairly inexpensive and the brush is quite functional. It didn't irritate my eyes and showed up intensively on the waterline.
Seven months later the texture is a lot drier. I can still work with it, but blacktrack remained creamier for longer. It also smears sometimes.
Will try Clinique's next!
I have this in Eggplant, which is a very dark plum, looks black in indoor light on my eye. I was hoping the color would be slightly more vibrant. I think I just prefer the convenience of a pencil eyeliner. It seems to take longer to apply this than when I use a pencil. That really is the only reason why I would not buy it again. On the positive side, it does not budge, no smudging. I can also get a very defined line using the brush that is provided. The packaging is ok, but i do feel like it takes numerous dips in the eyeliner to get enough product to complete an eye, thats why I prefer the convenience of a pencil eyeliner. But if you like the gel eyeliners and need something that doesnt budge, I would try this.
Been checking out the reviews for this gel liner and didn't get it til a few days ago! First time using it was for my university ball yesterday, risky i know:P I thought there would have been some minor smudging as stated by some of the reviews..but NO! Wore it for like....8 hours at least and it was still where I put it! No smudging! To further prove this, I was rubing the line and no colour went on my finger!:) I haven't done the water proof test yet but at least it's smudge free!
On a side note, Im a noob in makeup! It was my first time using gel liner and I just couldnt believe how easily u can draw the line! Way better than liquid liner! Gives u a more natural look too:)
Good quality liner! Will defs repurchase when this pot runs out! Definitely recommend this gel liner!
P.S: I have double lids and it works fine, maybe diff if u have monolids
I have used ever type of eyeline liquid pencil gel, and gel is by far the best, I love the brush that comes with this one, and this eyeliner is the best one that I have ever used, its just wonderful. The consitancy is great the coulors it comes in just everything. I recomend this to eyertone.
