i have this liner in 'charcoal gray' or something like that, lol. i apply it with my sk bent liner brush.
this a mehh product for me. . . yes, the liner is opaque...a nice rich gray.
BUT.. by the end of the day i looked in the mirror & was shocked to find that my eyeliner has almost completely faded away! i was left with gray flakes here and there. i don't know why this happened (i used udpp that day).
so if youre looking for a liner that isnt necessarily longwearing (even tho its called a long-wearing gel liner?) and is opaque, that you might like this. otherwise i don't reccomend.
My best friend and I went shopping at Target, I went to the SK isle and I was looking at the blushes, and the brushes. I was just browsing and seen the gel eyeliners. I hate liquid eyeliner, I always have used a pencil for lower and upper lashline [including waterline and tightline]. Well I asked him should I get a blush or eyeliner, his response was 'You can barely see blush get the black eyeliner, it's sexy' O.o
Anyway I tried it as soon as I got home and MAN! It was amazing!
And it has been ever since! I even had a cry with it on and it didn't move! Today I took a nap with it on, and when I woke up it didn't smear, smudge, run down, anything! I even put it on my waterline [I know, bad] and when I woke up it didn't go off! It's been on for 5 hours and it hasn't moved! Will be repurchasing again! [BTW, I use the bent eyeliner brush from SK to apply this with]
Don't buy this! I thought this would be a good dupe for MAC's Black Track fluidline. No way. MAC is much more liquidy and spreads easier. A good analogy: MAC is like spreading melted butter. SK is like spreading cold butter. SK so much harder to spread and takes me so much longer. It just does not compare to MAC. It worth the extra money to buy the MAC version.
Three words. Hate hate HATE! This product was aweful, It doesn't apply easy and it's a pain to remove over all the worst product I will EVER use.
What a terrific gel liner, that's creamy, goes on smooth, doesn't smudge or budge all day long! Seriously, a fabulous find! I've had this for months and the product in the jar hasn't dried out. I bought this in the brown color and I'm going back to Target to get all the other available colors. I couldn't be more pleased. It's as good, if not better than the Bobbi Brown or MAC gel liners. Must have in your makeup arsenal! Trust me on this one!
I bought the gel blackliner and it's amazing! It's not quite as dark as the bobbi brown's gel liners, but it is a dark black liner with a fantastic formula. They give you so much product and if the jar is closed properly, it lasts for such a long time! I use my jar everyday and it's been over a year now, and the product is still moist and very easy to apply. Definitely beats the mac gel liners by far and more worth it than the bobbi brown ones.
I also love that that the jar lid is a mirror so I can do a quick liner using just the lid when I'm in a jam and don't have a mirror handy!
The only downside is that this black gel liner is so popular, sometimes its really hard to find a target with the black liner still in stock.
Purchased the blue liner cause of rave reviews on here plus it was on clearance for $6.00 and I had a $1.00 coupon off Sonia Kashuk stuff. I want my $5.00 back!!! While the color pigmentation is good and color payoff is decent, I have NEVER had a gel liner flake as badly as this product did. It came off in chunks about 6 hours after applying. Not happy as it ended up looking all patchy, flakey and gross.
I will stick with my MAC liners. Yes, they cost more but I have never had a problem with them flaking off.
This gel liner is superior to all of the other (drugstore) gel liners I've tried for the following reasons:
Creamy and Workable
Does NOT dry out easily
Doesn't clump up in my lashes and make mascara difficult to apply
The last two reasons are what put SK ahead of Wet'n'Wild in my opinion. I've had two SK gel liners for a loooong time and they are still as good as the day I purchased. It takes me a while to go through a whole pot of gel liner, so it's important to me that they don't dry out too quickly. I didn't give it a 5 because it only works for my upper lashline and not my waterline. Overall, great value and performance!
I've been wanting a new gel liner for such a long time but I wasn't willing to pay $20 for the ones everyone says they love. Then I came across this one. I am in love!!! I use this with an angeled brush and it goes on beautifully. AND it lasts all day! The problem I had with my old gel liner (the coastal scent's one) was that it flaked horribly. Even after I had just put it on. With this one there is no flaking; it stays put all day! For only $8.99 this is great
I have never been able to use a liquid liner until this product. Since I wear glasses, putting eyeliner is hard enough when I can't see properly in the mirror so standard liquid liners would come out messy on my eye line. However I picked a pot of this up in ebony at Target since it was only 8.99 and a slanted eyeliner brush from their Studio Tools line to try it out one more time. I'm so glad I did because I was able to create perfectly lined eyes on my first try. I have no need to try out other brands, as long as SK makes gel eyeliner I will keep buying.
