I purchased the darkest black color and eggplant purple color. They both smeared when used on my waterline. I wanted to return them but couldn't make it before the 15 day return deadline. So now I'm going to have to make use of them somehow. I prefer my Bobbi Brown gel liner, virtually budge-proof for me. Lesson learned.
This is the only gel liner I have so i dont really know what to compere it with, but here it goes; I have no 77 which is a matte black. its a true dark black. It is super easy to work with and it was really easy for me to use bc it is quite creamy. it is the best for the winged out line aka cat eyes. Its also great to use in the waterline, and for me it stays put for 12+!! no flakes! I recently gave ones to my sister and my best friend and they both absolutely loved it.
They come in 20 different colors and im definitely getting more:)
I really wanted to love this eyeliner, but i simply didn't.
It's very dry the only good thing is that the color is extremly black,
i also didn't like it cause of the size i personally think its really small.
It stay almost all day, no transfer, but its so difficult to take it off.
This thing is phenomenal ! totally life savior for me. I have it in the shades 89 and 90 both are medium to dark brown shades. I use the 89 to draw on my eye brows and its phenomenal glides on the skin effortless and so smooth its a taupe brown purply color and if i dont take it off it will last probably for weeks LOL has matte finish I hardly touch the product with the brush and its enough to do my brows just phenomenal ! Considering the tiny amount u need of this it will probably last you 2 life times lets just hope that the packaging will prevent the product from drying out
BLACKER than blacktrack! And less smudgy (I have oily monolids) and DEFINITELY waterproof (stayed out through 3 hours of sweaty dance class). I've yet to try it all day; but it's lovely and so so worth it to me! Cheaper than fluidline, bobbi brown and more worth it than maybelline's! The formula is not as watery as blacktrack, which I love because it seems to contribute to greater opacity. Ive tried mac bobbi brown and stila and I like this the best! Oh yeah, and the glass is super light! (unlike the glass ones that come with mac or bobbi brown) I feel like I need the least amount of product on my brush to get a nice opaque line. Not sure , but this is my first Inglot purchase; I'll be updating soon!
**HOLY GRAIL LINER!**
- Waterproof therefore staying power
- Great consistency - I've had liners that are quite dry. This one is "wet", wet enough thatI can get right into my lash line, so I don't have that awkward look where there is eyeliner above my lashline, and naked waterline and lashline
- Price is very affordable
- Great variety of colours
- Very little goes a long way
- I don't have very much to say...maybe that if I make a mistake, it is hard to correct
- You have to be decent in applying with a brush
- There are no Inglots in Vancouver or Toronto
- Yes, this even stays on the waterline! Just apply
- Just slight wiggles in between your lashes and the liner will apply - no need to pull your skin, and rub and rebrush and rebrush...it is very easy
- To remove this product, I use an oil-based makeup remover - J & J Purpose cleanser works well, L'Occitance Apple Oil Cleanser (discontinued now), and Dermalogica precleanse. No need to rub, just hold your fingers on your eyes for a few seconds to give it time to work into all areas of your eyes
I've been using eyeliner for so long now... I've seen and used quite a lot. I started with pencils, started trying with felt tip liners and eventually I bought Bobbi Brown Long Lasting Gel Liner. Before that, I already tried Shiseido and Clinique cream liners but still I did not find my HG. Bobbi Brown is a good one but I find it a bit dry and clumpy at times, which makes it hard to apply.
After hearing a lot of raving about Inglot (they have been here in the Netherlands for a year now) I decided to go to an Inglot counter in a department store. The SA was really friendly and she did a great job helping me. I left with a lip paint, a Freedom Palette with colors to make my eye color 'pop' and a dark, matte brown eyeliner in a jar. The eyeliner is smooth to the touch, creamy enough to apply with ease and it dries to a beautiful pigmented, matte finish. And the best thing... It stays on forever. As I'm pregnant, I'm quite emotional but so far it survived every tear ;-) The price is very reasonable too, especially considering the price/quality. I paid 12 euros and in comparison: I paid 26 euros for the Bobbi Brown one. I might have found my HG in gel eyeliner...
I love this eyeliner which I have black, green and grey ones. BLACK is the best! It is the darkest black I have ever used. It stays all day and all night, hours and hours.. the application is easy with a standard eyeliner brush. The only problem is it dries up in a very short time. My solution for this was getting a "duraline" which is also a product of Inglot, I put 3 drops on the eyeliner before minimum 3 hours of using the eyeliner to allow it melts and the result is amazing. I use both of them for nearly 2 years, duraline is almost full and my eyeliner is in the half. So they definately worth what you pay believe me! ;)
As a 20 Uk senior pro, I've tried the lot. I was just beginning to give up with gels and creams. They vary, from flaking,. inconsistent, lack of pigment. My no 1 issue with them is dry up so fast.Some within a week. I'm forever mixing 244, of Make up Forever 246 to bring them back to life No matter how much they cost. Most are rubbish. I attended IMATS London pro only day. Glorious it was, like back in the day, pre you tube. Space to browse,, which is how it used to be TRADE ONLY.for one whole day.I wrote a list of what I wanted and basically stuck to it. I do not buy into hype, after testing I purchased 3 , I can honestly say they are simply the best in the business, no sign of drying up yet, after 3 weeks, a good tip is to spoon a little out into an air tight small tester pot, hence saves keep opening the jar keeping them moist. They glide on, great pigment,with whichever brush I grab first. Creamy, more so than gel. If they do not dry up I have at last found the HG, and will purchase more, Inglot offered a generous 30%,at IMATS, which is better then the 20% offered to UK pros outside of IMATS. I was short of time, by the time I reached Inglot. they had a massive stand at the front. Dont waste your money on others these liners are the way to go. They cost £10 rrp in the UK, less 20% discount for pro artists.
I like this gel eyeliner-- a lot! The price is reasonable, it doesn't flake on me, it is nicely pigmented, lasts all day until I take it off, and most importantly- it applies nice & smooth with my Sephora angled eyeliner brush. I haven't tried this in humid weather (it's winter where I live), but I will update this if this gel liner can't hold up under humid conditions, like my MAC Fluidlines and Bobbi Brown gel inks do. I read most of the reviews here before I bought this, and I saw a few here where the reviewers said this was impossible to remove, even with eye makeup remover. I am not having that same experience, as I wore this 2 days in a row; and both days, mine easily came off with my Neutrogena makeup remover wipes. I didn't even have to go over it with another eye makeup remover, and I didn't have to tug or rub my eyelids raw to get it off. I just patted the wipe over the eyeliner and it gently wiped away. My only turnoffs about this gel liner compared to others I've used is I find it nearly impossible to remove from my eyeliner brush, and I'm afraid I'm going to ruin my favorite eyeliner brushes because I have to rub so hard with my usual brush cleanser to get it off. Because of this, it also takes longer to clean my brush. I find this sticks more tenaciously to my eyeliner brush than to my eyelids! My only other minor complaint is that this liner does apply *slightly* more wet than MAC Fluidlines/Bobbi Brown gel liners and needs a few extra seconds to set. The first day I used this, I was unaware of this characteristic... and being a "mature" gal with aging, hooded, eyelids... I noticed my eyeliner met with my upper eyelid over one eye and ruined my eyeshadow job. Being that this liner holds on so tightly, I had a hard time removing the smudge with a cotton swab, so I basically had to remove my eyeshadow with eye makeup remover and do my right eye all over again. No big deal, but now I know to let this set for about a minute before I start moving my lids around. The next day I had no problems with smudging. Oh, PS~ I bought this in 2 colors: Black #77 and "Blurple" #83. I like them both! :)
