I really like the Inglot gel eyeliners. To me they are the same in quality as the Mac fluidline. I prefer the Inglot packaging - an acrylic jar which is lighter and more travel friendly to the Bobbi Brown and Mac gel eyeliners.
The colour range is superb, although in saying that I have not used or purchased the brighter colours (I stick to charcoal, black, brown and dark violet shades).
Inglot and Mac fluidline make some awesome gel eyeliners. The quality is the same as the Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner but I think the texture of the Inglot and Mac is smoother and less prone to drying out/cracking etc. Fluidline has slightly bulkier packaging (glass vial) vs Inglots which feels like a light acrylic container.
I feel that Mac and Inglot do not last as long as the Bobbi Brown gel eyeliners and they smudge ever so slightly more but the difference to me is negligible.
If you are price-conscious try the Inglot eyeliners first - to me they are EXACTLY the same quality. If I was to do a blind test I am sure people would not be able to tell the difference between the two.
I have a love-hate relationship with these gel liners. I've heard SO many wonderful amazing things with these. I'm going to review them by colour, because my thoughts vary between them. What I can say for all of them is that the texture is much less creamy than MAC fluidlines.
77; Jet Black, this is my go to black liner for both the upper lashline and waterline. I find it stays longer than blacktrack, and it quite a bit "blacker". I do prefer the texture of blacktrack more because it is a bit wetter, while this is pretty dry. The only real problem I have with this is that it comes off in the outter corners of my water line, completely gone by the end of the day, even being set with eyeshadow. But I've come to except that with all eyeliners I've tried on my waterline.
76; Pure White, I've only used this as an eyeshadow base so far and I really like it. It does not crease at all. It is difficult to blend out the edges though because this is so dry and once it has set it does not budge.
73; Lilac, I'm in love with this color. It's one of the more creamy colors I have and is beautiful as both a base and a liner. I imagine it would make a lovely lip color too.
72; Hot Pink, great eyeliner, base, and lip color, stain like. If you wear this as a lip color make sure you have very moisturized lips. I have not had a problem with this staining my lids, like some hot pinks do.
87; Teal, oh how I wanted to love this. I absolutely ADORE the color, but it's the driest one I have. It's so hard to work with and as a liner it flakes off in big chunks. It's difficult to get on evenly as a liner and as a base. Maybe I just received a bad one.
OVERALL, I really do love these. I plan to try out more colors.
I have these in 84, 87 and 75. I like the gel liners themselves, they're pigmented, have a good staying power and I love the variety of shades. But they dry way too quickly. I don't have enough time to line my eyes with it. And the plastic packaging makes it dry inside the pot as well. One of my gel liners is cracked cause of the dryness.
Love the shades, but not crazy about the drying or the plastic packaging.
I am a long time MAC Fluidline user, and Blacktrack has been my HG liner for a while now. Since my Blacktrack was almost gone, and I was placing an Inglot order for my birthday, I thought I would try out a few of their gel liners. I got #77 (matte black), #85 (matte lime green) and #87 (matte turquoise). I LOVE them! The black is my favorite (I use black liner most days anyway). They stay on my waterline ALL day. They are not too wet or dry, and you get an opaque line in one swipe. I have not used them as a base yet, but have heard they are awesome that way too. I plan to add them all to my makeup collection!
As a longtime Mac Fluidline user, I was skeptical of anything that reviewers claimed would rival the greatness of Blacktrack. But the Inglot matte black gel liner actually lives up to the hype. I happened to be in NY on a trip and stopped by the Inglot store specifically to buy this. Love it! On me, it is a true matte black with a single swipe, darker than Blacktrack. It lasts all day with zero fading in hot summer weather - amazing. Be warned - it is super-fast drying, so it is hard to fix any mistakes. I find that I have to be more careful, and do better with a fine eyeliner brush than my usual small angled brush with this one. I've had mine for only a few weeks, so I can't speak to the drying out problem that some reviewers have mentioned. It is cheaper than fluidline by a few bucks, so that is an added plus.
I got these in a swap with a Polish swapper. She got me #78 and #90. 78 is a deep blued-grey, and 90 is a matte dark brown. It does not take a lot of product to make a nice line. I've been using my EcoTools bamboo slanted eyeliner brush with these and I have been able to easily make some nice cat-eye looks. There is a TON of product in these pots, and the color selection is fun! I want to get #89 next. You can do a google image search for these swatches and there are quite a few websites that will show you what they look like. These colors are nicely pigmented, and are reasonable in price. My HG liner is still the Buxom Lashliner in Suede, but you do get considerably less product for more money with that product. These are $12 at Inglot stores and at inglotusa.com.
I bought it in shade 83, a beautiful bright "blurple" shade. The consistency is great. I apply it with my Mac 210 (fine liner) and it glides on the skin beautifully, making it much easier to draw a precise line than, say, some of the driest Fluidlines by Mac (I'm looking at you, Dark diversion!!!). To have a greater color payoff I have to do a couple of layers, though. Once it sets, it stays color-true and doesn't budge all day, though it will come off very easily with a waterproof makeup remover. It's not cheap, but you get a lot of product, though I've had it for two weeks, so I can't really say anything yet about its durability. My only complaint is that I can't seem to apply it without it sticking to half my lashes, making it a REAL mess to apply mascara afterwards.
The eyeliner cracked and dried up within a month. It doesn't last throughout the day and gives me raccoon eyes.
I cannot believe how BLACK this is!! absolutely amazing! it claims to be waterproof, which it is,, as much as an eyeliner can be. goes on nicely. Compared to MAC's Fluid line I like this one better as it stays on my water line better, it is a thicker consistency, which is a bit more tricky to work with, but its so much BLACKER!! lol
which i think is fantastic, great for photography.
Cheaper than MAC fluidline.
The quality is amazing. Positive: once you apply it, it doesn't budge under you take it off (though I have noticed it tends to leave the tear duct area :(), Negative: once you apply it, it doesn't budge! I go through around 4 or 5 makeup pads with my Neutrogena eye makeup remover. That is how many it takes to remove the liner. It does tend to cling to my angled eyeliner brush so applies thickly, but in an unbroken line, and if I applied it with a pointed end liner it would probably go on in a thin line.
Other good points: only need to line the eye once; the colour is INTENSE (for the black); it is easy to use; really nice consistency. Definite rebuy!
