-easy to use
-i wish it applied on more opaque
-the eggplant color is very dark and looks almost black, i was hoping for a brighter purple
-dries out easily
-packaging lid dries out product
I would probably not repuchase only because after using the black liner, i had high hopes for this one. However it is not really what i was looking for. This liner is definitely what you pay for
Wow, a great product from this cheap drugstore brand! I really went there for the black but they were sold out, so I picked up this eggplant color. It is dark and slightly plum. Don't use the cheapo brush it came with - get a nice quality eyeliner brush. Great application. Not dried out, like the Smashbox gel liner. Would definitely buy again, but probably will not have to for awhile because they give you a generous amount for $4, less than half price from my former fave, Sonia Kashuk. Sonia is still good, but this is a better deal.
My first gel liner purchase. At first I didn't like it but I realized it was because of the brush. It was applying way to thick of a line. Now that I have a better brush I like this a lot. A nice deep purple which lasts all day! Nice change from using black every day.
LOVE IT, being my first gel liner. Although, I took a lippie off for the pigment. Too dark that I thought it was black and it even looked kinda black instead of a deep purple on me :( ALSO I took athat lippie for the brushing for completely sucking on the waterline. I gave it 4 lippies because it was creamy and soft AND it last all day. But smudge just a bit. Go and buy it now :)
This is my 1st gel liner and I am really impressed.
First, the color: I lurve this deep (cool-toned) purple. It is awesome to bring out any greens in hazel eyes.
It lasts all day and I have oily eyelids.
It was easy to applicate with the angled brush that came in the package but I used my Ecotools angled brush (I prefer a longer handle)
Can't beat the price. I found it at Walmart in Canada
I was disappointed by this product. I am a gel liner junkie. I have tried Bobbi Brown, Femme Couture, Wet and Wild, L'Oreal Hip and Indelible gel liners. L'Oreal Hip is by far my favorite, femme couture, bobbi brown and indelible are all on the same level as my 2nd favorite.
I havent tried the black in this because I have been satisfied by Bobbi Brown and L'Oreal Hip's black gel liners, but I got this to replace the only L'Oreal Hip liner color that didnt work for me, eggplant. This product was not very good to use on the waterline, I found it wore off quickly. The main reason I didnt like it is because the pigment sucks. I have to go over and over again to make it show up and its impossible to get a decent line that way. The brush is not that bad surprisingly, I saved it to line my upper lashes (too scratchy for the waterline)
Luckily I paid 4 bucks for this because I am not going to use the rest of it.
Alright, If you are looking for an eyeliner that is inexpensive, and does a pretty good job, I would recommend this product. It has a creamy texture when it is being puton, and looks like the pictures above. One thing that i had a problem with was the amount that actually showed up on my lids. I had to go over it twice to get the even amount of color. Overall, i would buy it again, it was only around $4 dollars, versus my stila smudgepots or bobbi brown gel eyeliner which are more than quadruple that. The brush that came with it was very, very stiff, and when i tried it to see how well it worked, it made a huge dent in the liner. The brush was horrible, but it works well with other brushes.
I picked this up along w/ the Sand Castle palette a while ago as a buy one get one. I haven't really used this much until recently, since almost all eyeliners smudge on my top lash line, so I could only line my tightline with pencil. After a couple of months of purchase, it still hasn't dried out, which I find nice. This color is a nice dark purple, as shown in the photograph, and I find that it does make my dark brown eyes pop. The brush it comes w/ is very stiff, and I haven't used it b/c it seems too thick for the thin lines I like, so I'm just keeping it in case I need it for brows some time. I was surprised to find out that at the end of the day, it barely smudged (considering I have extremely oily lids) and the color still looked strong, no fading whatsoever. Though this wasn't a miracle worker for me, considering the price ($4) and how long it lasts w/o smudging too much, I shall repurchase when I see these on sale again, just because I'm a bargain shopper :)
Will update after trying to tightline w/ this
I bought this while I was debating whether it was worth $20 for a pot of the Stilla smudge pot in a fun color (I had a sample size in black).
I actually picked this up in the store before I had read anything about it, but wet n wild had a BOGO at my grocery, so I tried it.
Generally, I really like it. Definate pro is that it is a lovely PURPLE (the pictures above do it good justice). You know how sometimes when you put oh purple liner it just comes out looking black? Not this one, it is a nice and wearable pretty purple. It also lasts well throughout the day. I put some on around noon, and it stayed throughout the day, including a workout class (with no primer).
It is pretty easy to apply, I don't use the small brush it came with. I think it was an okay brush, but honestly small little thingies like that get lost in my makeup collection. I use the Sonia Kashuk tiny eyeliner brush with the bent head. It works pretty well, although I am still learning how to apply cream eyeliner.
So yes, I'd say it is worth your money to give this a try! I definately didn't want to spend a ton, because I knew I wasn't going to use it everyday, but I want it in my collection. If it doesn't come off looking a dark enough purple, just put a second "coat" on top. I did that today, and it looked great!
wow this sucks as an eyeliner, WAY too soft and not pigmented enough. but i used it as a base and its nice as a base haha :)
