Why oh why, did it take me so long to find this product?? Oh right, I was used to schlepping to the department store counters for the overpriced stuff. Found this product at the local Loblaws' pharmacy section and decided to give a go after reading that it was suited to contact lens wearers.
After trying other eyeliners that claim that the product would not melt away or slide off my face or smudge my contact lens during the day, I shrugged and said "oh, why not?" At $11.99 CAD, it would not leave me bawling into my empty wallet if it did not live up to my expectations like so many other skincare or cosmetic items in the past.
I had loved the little pot and brush combo. Also liked the fact that the brush was short enough not to bump into the mirror when I leaned closer while applying the product to my eyelids. The laquer itself was a dream, soft with easy application in a single sweeping line from the brush. There was no need to use a lot, a little was enough to draw a thin solid line. The brush's bristles were feathery soft, with no abrasive dragging. So far, it had lasted the majority of the day. Very impressed. Will purchase again.
I bought this liner a few months ago and never went back to pencil again! This stuff is creamy and smooth with consistent opaque colors, and has great staying power, even on my oily lids! I have this in blackest black, espresso, navy, and bronze, and while all of the colors are VERY similar to each other, this is overall a great product. I've tried some other brands but this stuff has the best consistency and also comes with a nice brush that isn't too stiff or soft. Also, the little glass pots it comes in keep this product from feeling too cheap, which is a nice touch! Definitely my HG liner, I use it every day!
This is my first time trying gel liner. I've always used pencil, liquid, or black eyeshadow to line my eyes. I really like this and I am glad I gave it a try. It stays put all day and it looks incredible. I also like how easy it is to make a thin or thick line, depending on what I want that day. I think I just might be converting to gel liner now.
Best gel liner I've ever tried :-) loving it
I usually repurchase the maybelline studio eye gel liner but i saw this and decided to give it ago and luckily i did because im in love! here's some of the pros and cons
the formula is so creamy and glides on so smooth
i got mine in black which is really dark unlike other eyeliners that can come off greyish
i had no problem with smudging
at the end of the day it looks as good as when i applied it in the morning
I have none! only complaint is that it was pretty expensive $25AUD but i still think this is my HG!
I love this product. I read a lot it reviews about it smudging but i didn't have that problem and it last all day.
Great product! I don't tend to wear black liquid or gel liner because it feels to bold or stark next to my pale skin. Instead, I usually use a black pencil I can smudge or a dark grey gel liner. But, sometimes I want a bold look. So, after loving this gel liner in Dark Slate, I purchased Blackest Black. It's a nice really dark black. It doesn't budge or flake on me. It applies smoothly and evenly. I certainly don't use this one as often as the my other one but, it's a great product to have on hand. I recommend it to anyone who likes to wear black gel or liquid liner.
I really like this gel eyeliner but when I compare it to the Maybelline gel eyeliner its not the same. I find that the L'oreal one tends to smudge at the bottom of my eye and the Maybelline one doesn't. Other than that It does last for quite some time but I'm not sure if ill buy it again. I might as well buy either Maybelline or MAC.
Bought this for a little over $9 w a BOGO deal at rite aid. Pretty good drugstore gel liner for my oily lids which are crease prone for eyeshadow without my urban decay primer potion. Works much better and is much darker than MAC fluid line. I really like this liner and would repurchase If I ever run out.
Tip: do not touch up liner with an angle brush if its already dried or else it will flake! I lined my upper lid in the morning for a daytime look. Then I got home and decided to draw a thicker line over it before I went clubbing that night. It flaked. Use a liquid liner to thicken lines or any winged liner to avoid the gel liner from flaking.
