This is an average gel liner that I would probably not buy again.
I agree with other reviewers that the pigment is not very strong. I have black and it looks more charcoal. The consistency is not super smooth and flakes. And I am not a fan of the packaging - the pot is a bit too deep to get a good amount on your brush, and the brush itself is not very good.
This is my second time trying a drugstore brand of gel liner (the other being Maybelline), and I would definitely spend a bit more for MAC or Clinique.
I feel that a lot of gel liners are hit or miss. Revlon's is a bit of a miss. I like the brush, generally. It's very similar to Maybelline's Lasting Drama liner and great for beginners. The product itself is just meh. I have this in black and do not find it to be all that pigmented (it looks more like a charcoal gray to me). If you're going for more of a natural look with, this may be more for you-however if you like something darker or more dramatic, you'll find yourself adding layers and layers & that's just annoying-especially if you're time pressed. The consistency of the product is nice and seems to last a while without smudging. I probably won't purchase this again unless they improve the formula.
This was my first (and so far, only) gel liner so I have nothing to compare it to. I've always loved my pencil and liquid liners but was curious when I saw this. So for a beginner, it's a pretty good product. I found the brush pretty easy to work with and was able to get a good line the first time I tried, and got better with more practice. The liner itself is pretty good and I have no complaints. I expect higher end products to be smoother, but this was not too difficult, even for a gel liner beginner. I did not need it to last an entire day when I used it, so I can't speak to the staying power, but for the 4-5 hours I had it on, it looked fine, no smudging or flaking.
I'll probably look into other brands if I'm in the market again for a gel liner, but for now I'm quite satisfied with this one. It would also make a pretty good gel liner to keep on-the-go in a purse.
Finally!!! A drugstore eye liner that really does last all night. I love this eye liner! If I don't remove it at the end of the night, it is still there in the morning. It is so affordable and there is enough to last a long time. The brush took a little getting used to, but now I really like the control I can get with it and I like that the brush is stored in the end of the lid.
The packaging is extremely deceiving. I was fooled. This product is an exact to the Lorac one, forget the name.
The whole brush idea is very ideal for someone like me who doesn't have time and always is gone. Props to Revlon.
The gel, isn't worth spending money for. It flakes and drags, it is extremely drying. I applied this one time at 1pm and came back around 10pm, completely flaked. I was wondering why it felt like something was getting into my eyes so much. I really love the Maybelline Gel eyeliner, I have that in the light grey. I would prefer the maybelline over this, any day. Less price and more quality.
I would speak with Revlon, tell them to recreate a new formula and make the pot bigger.
I have yet to find a drugstore gel liner that is comparable to MAC Fluidline or Bobbi Brown's gel liners. I believe I paid $9 for this at Walgreens...the pot is ridiculously small. The brush it comes with is way too big and applies it very thick. Starts fading after a couple of hours and smudging within another. Also it dries out very fast. I wasn't too happy with the Maybelline gel liner either, but it is about the same as this and cheaper. As always, I bought this in black. I would rather pay more and just buy MAC Fluidline.
This was a piece of crap. It has a soft brush to apply the liner that seems to have the consistency of eye shadow. It goes on way too thick and you have to go over the lid line several times to get an even line. I bought it yesterday and threw it in the garbage today. Mine was the charcoal color.
I LOVE THE CONSISTENCY OF THESE LINERS <3 I bought it in 3 colors, charcoal, brown and black (i picked up charcoal thinking it would be black, woops!). Some gel liners have such a hard texture that its difficult to line my eyes with it. Its so soft and stays on forever! I have minimal smudging with this. However, I'm not in love with the colors. The black was pretty pigmented but i felt like it wasnt dark enough for me. Same with the brown and charcoal. Also, during the colder seasons, i noticed the product does get a little harder so i have to warm it up in my microwave a little or light a match and warm the bottle with the flame. I HATE THE BRUSH THIS LINER COMES WITH. I can never get a thin, consistent line and then the product tends to stick to the brush, making it hard to clean. I would buy this again, maybe start mixing colors together for a darker finish.
I LOVE this gel liner. I'm big on gel eyeliners because I find they have the most uses with the least amount of skill. The brush is pretty good, but it takes some practice. I don't feel the need to use my MAC208 to apply this liner, the brush it comes it is just fine. I got the black version, and the colour is very bold, even with just one swipe. With a primer, this stays on until I use my makeup remover. It's waterproof, as long as you don't rub or swipe your eyes after they get wet (which you shouldn't do anyway!); just pat and dab. Without a primer (I have oily lids!), I find this transfers to my under eyes and on my lids in a couple of hours. It's probably just because of my oily lids, because when I swiped some on the back of my hands and went to school to test the staying power, it only faded a bit. No smudging or anything. I won't repurchase because it comes with a lot of product (I only need a small amount since I like to simply draw a thin line) and I don't wear eyeliner daily.
This stuff is the freaking bomb. I am in love with the 40's and 50's makeup. The winged eyes and red lipstick looks nice on my fair skin and I can get just that with this gel liner! I was spectacle at first when my mom picked this up, but it turned out to be great! It's staying power is great and the brown color(espresso maybe?) looks perfect and not as fake as black would look on a strawberry blonde. I want to get their fire and ice lipstick to top it off! <3
