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! :)
OMG! FINALLY I found the perfect black gel eyeliner! I have tried a lot of them believe me.. Mac, elf,l'oreal HIP and nothing I mean nothing is as good as this! I read good reviews of this on line so I went to buy the matte black which is #77. all inglot is #'s not names and it is a really really pigmented matte black. You only need a tiny bit on a slanted eyeliner brush so I think this jar is going to last me a long time. It goes on smooth and sets quickly and the BEST part it stays ALL day! I mean all day! The first day I used Ito had it on14+ hours and it still looked as good as when I first put it on! I have. NEVER had this happen with anything else. Today I did a cat eye and again I'm here with 12+ hours and still perfect! I've also seen on line people use this formula for an eye shadow base as well with I am exited to try with a lighter color. If it stays on this well I can't imagine what it will do under eye shadow. I'll post that review once itry it
start with a thin line and layer to make it thicker.
Remove it with eye make up remover. Soap and water or make ups does not get this stuff off.
I have 77 (matte black), 79 (red) and 82 (blue) and all have amazing staying power and color payoff. At age 51 it's getting harder to get a nice crisp line on older crepey lids, but the smooth quality of these gel liners really helps me continue to achieve the look. #77 is the darkest black gel liner I have tried (blacker than MAC, Clinique, Wet n' Wild, Maybelline, you name it). It works perfectly for me on the waterline and for tightlining - a little goes a very long way and stays and stays and STAYS. To the point that it definitely can be difficult to remove and you need a very good makeup remover. I also appreciate that these products are not tested on animals and are paraben free.
I originally bought this liner after reading online and on you tube that it was waterproof/super long lasting. After using it on/off for a year i can definitely say this is true! I have number 77 black which is really pigmented, probably the most out of any other gel liner I've tried. It also lasts quite impressively on the waterline.
However the downside is that it is difficult to get off, which makes me think its probably not best to be used everyday on the delicate eye are!? Still a good product that I will continue to use but not sure i would repurchase.
I love this product. I have monolids and I've been searching for a liner that would not smudge for years. The inglot gel liner is better than all the other liners I've tried (mac,bobby brown,tarte,maybelline,wet&wild). It is also the only liner that would set on my waterline.
I think that for the quality of the product, the price is right. My maybelline gel liner cost me 8$ and doesn't work at all. For 10$ more, I think this product it's completly worth your money.
I was really impressed with this eye liner right after I applied it, the black is super dark, goes on really smoothly and sets to a really quickly. I find that even with a primer it does crease slightly, you don't get a total transfer but there will be a gray line above your lid. The product doesn't flake off after a few hours like another gel liner I've tried.
How ever.. I'm not sure if this is a claim by the company, as I couldn't see it anywhere on the packaging but the sales assistant assured me it was truly water proof. I've also seen a popular youtube guru insist this is the case. I have incredibly watery eyes at the outer corners and having a really water proof eyeliner is always my number one concern. Within an hour or two it has completely melted at the outer corner. It looks just awful! I can't even tell you. It bleeds like crazy. I also find that by the end of the day all the liner is clumped into the inner corner of my eyes! My make up looks like a damn mess. With a primer I find it holds a LITTLE better but still not enough for me to justify buying this product again, which sucks because I also purchased the indigo colour which I find applies no way near as bright as it looks in the packaging.
It looks beautiful right after applying, nice selection of colours, reasonable pricing, but I won't be purchasing again.
I tried this on at Inglot. The product was too dry, cakey, very clumpy and didn't go on smooth at all. It also wasn't that black to me. More of a dull black instead of an intense black. The gel liner began to separate after an hour and just looked dry on clumpy on my eyelid.
I tried to wash it off with soap and water many times, even using a wipe, but still had a hard time getting this product off my eye. I didn't like this product at all.
I love this stuff. The pigmentation is amazing. It lasts far longer than me most days. The large jar makes it easy to get the brush into the product. Its great texture makes it a dream to apply-so smooth. I did accidently leave the lid offfor one day and a large crack appeared in the product as if it dried but its still the same as before. Most definitely will repurchase.
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.
