Not a fan of this product. It fades out on me after only three or four hours of wear. No comparison to Bobbi Brown's gel liner.
I bought this in brown. I have never been a fan of a solid, hard, black line when lining my eyes, so I went with this product as it was a gel eyeliner.
I used very little to "line" my eyes in a slightly smudged manner.
I think that this is perfect for anyone looking for a more smudged or smoky look... I think it would also work if you want a solid, neat line, but, considering that the texture of the product is very creamy, I'm not sure how long it will last.
The skin around my eyes tend to get irritated by many eyeliners and mascaras on the market, but this was gentle on my skin and didn't bother me.
The only downside I can think of is the hygiene of the brush... You will have to always clean the brush after using it to make sure you don't collect bacteria and give yourself an eye infection.
I think this is just so so. I like that it is very pigmented and it looks beautiful when first applied. However, it only lasts about 4 hours on me. Plus the bottom lid always smudges a little in the corner. I am much happier with the Lasting Drama eye pencil. That one stays on much better than the gel.
When I put this product on I LOVE it, but then later in the day it goes away, smudges on my eye, or leaves a 'ring' on my eyelid. I need something that will stick and look good, but a decent price. I'm a put on and go girl, not a look in the mirror to see if my make up is awesome. I dont have long eyelashes, so I like eyeliner. Every liner I have tried is the same effect 'racoon eyed, & a faint brown line on my top lid. This makes me look like I haven't had sleep in days.
I love that it looks like a liquid liner when I put it on. I didn't like the brush it came with, so I just switched it out with my MAC eyeliner brush. Also, this product doesn't last for long hours. I usually have it on for a good 12+ hours throughout the day and it sort of starts wearing off halfway through the day. I would probably repurchase only because it is practically the same thing as my MAC gel liner, but much cheaper.
This product was just average. Drama? Yes. Smears? Yes. Useful brush? No. This product is okay for a night out or a small occasion. But it's not an everyday eyeliner for me. It gets messy and the brush just takes up more space. I bought this maybe twice? But haven't ever since returning to basic eyeliners.
First off, let me say this oily lidded lass is a huge fan of gel liners. I have tried most of the high end gel liners and my favorite is Bobbi Brown. However, BB does not carry a deep, dark gray/soft matte black and so I picked this up in "Charcoal." It has a buttery texture when applied and allows a bit of play time to smudge before it sets. The shade and texture of "Charcoal" reminds me of Stila Smudge Pots in Grey, but for half the price. Also, contrary to what others have posted, I love the applicator; it's ultra soft and tapered and is much like BB's fine liner brush, perfect to throw in your makeup bag. Have worn it on both the upper and lower lash line and it stays put--does not budge or transfer and seems to be in every way as competent as its frou-frou cousins. Hopefully it won't dry out like my liners from Tarte have!
I'm overall satisfied with this product. It's easy to get on even you're newbie to makeup. It gives a matte finish more like pencil but feels softer to apply on. You can also get a more intense look if you apply more.
It's not waterproof but it somehow manages to stay in place on my oily lids even without primer. It does smudges a little at the end of the day but it's acceptable for me.
The brush that comes with was not bad, but I don't doubt that there are other better brushes.
I personally would definitely recommend and repurchase it. It stays quite well on my oily lids, is easy to use and I like its matte finish. Plus, the price make it even more attractive. But if you prefer a very intense look as most liquid eyeliner, or if you don't tolerant any smudge at all, maybe it's not for you.
I had been looking for a highly pigmented and long-lasting eyeliner for my waterline for years and finally found this product. Its a great one. Period! Only downsides being it doesn't really go for an extra-smooth application, brush gets clumpy and the one in blue color has no staying power. However, its a blessing for waterline applicators like me. Still to find a replacement.
Not great, but not terrible either. Mediocre quality. The brush it comes with is absolutely useless; don't even bother trying to use it. A good quality brush used with it can make all the difference. I found it dried out quite quickly. Because of it's consistency, it's hard to make a gorgeous, smooth straight line so it's better when doing a smoky look and blending it out. Overall, not a horrible product but both the MAC and Bobbi Brown products are much better.
