I really love the look of pencil eyeliner, but they never ever stay on no matter what they claim to do. BB Gel Liners actually stay put all day long, sometimes even after I've used eye makeup remover. I have this in Chocolate Shimmer Ink and it's a very pretty brown with lots of dimension. The shimmer is virtually imperceptible when on. The Sepia Ink was very flat and grey-like for a brown so I exchanged it for this liner. I use the MAC eyeliner brush and can usually get a thin line. My advice if you don't like the way this looks like a liquid eyeliner line on the bottom lashes is: once you have finished the top of one eye, do not dip it back it, use the remaining on the brush to dab a line onto the bottom lashline. This wil result in a softer line.
I have this in bronze shimmer. Its a gorgeous bronze eye liner that stays put ALL day ( and I have oily skin) its beautiful on. I use this for the day at work or school and at night I usually go for black, but this shade is gorgeous day or night!!!
I really wanted an eyeliner that wouldn't smudge, and judging from all the reviews here, I thought this would be it. However, it smudges within 2 hours of putting it on.
this is a great product but it absolutely kills the brush you use with it. also, after a few months it gets hard. but even with that, it's a really great product.
GREAT eyeliner...my HG! Eyeliner is a tough thing for me since I have asian eyes AND the no double lid situation going on so pretty much nothing works. I would highly recomend for anyone looking for an liner that is easy to put on AND smudge proof.
Love love love! I just got this in Sapphire Shimmer, such a beautiful color. I don't have a lot to compare this to because I haven't used MAC Fluidlines or anything else, but I have used Clinique's Cream liners, and I like this much better. The color payoff is better and Bobbi Brown has much better colors. Also, the shimmer in Clinique's Black Honey cream liner was very irritating to my eyes, but the shimmer in the BB Sapphire doesn't bother me at all. Love this and will soon start collecting the other colors as well!
Great product, I have sepia ink, and I actually use it for eyebrow filler as well. I am asian with dark hair it works great..i like to extend the tail of my eyebrow, so this product has lasting power..
I have 6 of these so far, Sepia Ink, Espresso Ink, Granite Ink, Black Ink, Cobalt Ink and Sapphire Shimmer Ink. My favourites would have to be espresso for a natural look, black for a more definied look and sapphire for a fun look. I have blue eyes and espresso and black definitely work well with them. Sapphire also does something for my eyes, making them pop and whitening the whites. The quality of these gel liners is second to none, they're smooth, go on easily and stay put until you remove them. They're all I use now and I never leave the house without wearing one of them. I use the bobbi brown ultra fine eyeliner brush with them and find it's perfect to get her signature line which I love. You can draw a straight line or wing it out at the end whilst taughtening your eye to make it a bit easier. These little pots are so cute and do seem to last a good while. I think as long as you close them tight after each use they stay moist longer. All in all, a fabulous item which I wouldn't be without....EVER!!!
Ditto on all the good comments. Most eyeliners somehow manage to irritate my eyes big-time. By the afternoon I have watery eyes and a headache. So I've avoided eyeliner for a long time.
I knew I'd be visiting the Bobbie Brown counter so I thought I'd read some reviews and was impressed by what was said about this gel eyeliner. I tried some on and was very impressed. After finally deciding on Sepia Ink, I also bought the brush (which needs to be the way it is--thicker than most eyeliner brushed I'm used to) and am happily on my third day of using it.
It stays on and DOES NOT GET INTO MY EYES! It's a little stubborn to get off, but worth the extra work. I would like to get some other colors.
Love Bobbi's gel eyeliner, it edges out mac fluidline IMO. Stays on all day and the color stays true.
