I love the colors and the ease of application. The only thing I don't like is that it tends to come off on the eyelash curler, as I curl my lashed after I apply the liner. Otherwise, beautiful product.
I heard about this product through word of mouth from several friends who always have impeccable eyeliner, and have to admit its an absolute wonder-product, and makes getting beautiful "cleopatra" style cat-eye liner a doddle for anyone, as long as you use a decent brush (as other reviewers have noted). Expensive, but a little goes a long way, and in addition to this, this product's staying power is remarkable; I wore it on a visit to Sydney in high summer to a garden party, and even in 35 degree heat it hardly budged or smudged at all (and I can't say the same for Mac fluidline, the only other product I've come across which is similar to this). I have the black and will probably purchase other colours too at some future point. I would give this product 6 out of five if I possibly could!
I bought the gel liner in Espresso Ink, for tightlining. I find the consistency nice to work with provided a good brush is used. I've also used it to create the Angelina Jolie winged liner effect. This liner has great staying power, it doesn't budge, flake, or smear. You do need to work quickly, though, because the product is quick to set. It stays on all day until I take it off. I like the colour of the Espresso Ink for tighlining, but I am fair skinned and I find the colour too stark used on the lid (I never wear black eyeliner). I will repurchase, in some of the other colour offerings. I wish it came in a teal shimmer!
I love this! I started using this gel every day over 1 year ago, and I still have more than HALF of product left in the jar. I love how it stays put all day and no touch-up is required. I use Bobbi Brown ultra-fine liner brush with this, and it seems to be the only brush that works for me. This was such a great investment. Cheaper than liquid liners cus liquid liners last only a few months top, and this will last more than 2 years!
I have Granite Ink, and it looks pretty black on my lids, but I guess it's supposed to be greyer than Black Ink. Still i still consider it as a black eyeliner. continued >>
I read reviews on MUA all the time, but I'm not really one to write them.... in fact, this is my first one! I was so compelled by this product that I felt that I had to vote on it, even if my review is somewhat brief. I've tried two of Bobbi Brown's gel eyeliners: the navy one, and the bronze one, and both are absolutely excellent. Very long wearing, and beautiful, subtle colors. Easy to apply (I love Prescriptives Eyeliner Brush, $18), and results in a beautiful gleam, instead of the usual cakey, dry nasty pencil eyeliner effect that I have begun to loathe. Pencil eyeliners tend to suck up light, making the eye look smaller and drier, while this gel texture is gleaming, moist, and visually expands the eye area. I definitely want to try many more shades of this, as my budget permits. I am in love, and my HG list is rather short. Gush, gush, gush.
I thought Bobbi Brown gel liners were great until I tried MAC Fluidlines. I prefer MAC. I find BB a bit dry/drying, hard to remove, and just not as smooth as Fluidlines. I'm also put off by the higher price for essentially the same product (though MAC is better) in the same amount. I find the pot a bit clunky and too heavy. Something smaller (like MAC) would've been better. Don't get me wrong--BB gel liners are still wonderful. It's just that I have an easier time applying Fluidlines since it doesn't dry as fast and goes on more smoothly. BB sometimes skips and tugs if I don't work quickly enough.
I can't believe I am so late to BB gel liners! I bought Chocolate Shimmer about 2 months ago and this is my current HG (I was in love with MAC Blitz & Glitz before I found out about Chocolate Shimmer).
BB gel liner glides on smoothly and easily. It doesn't smudge on me and last for the entire day. This is perfect for someone like me who cannot live without liners. I can actually see myself finishing this and wouuld definitely repurchase, but before that, I would probably buy Bronze Shimmer, Black Plum, Hunter first. I am so glad too that BB has decided not to make the Shimmer Ink range LE =)
Any girl should own at least one of the gel liners!
Since I discovered this remarkable product, all the junk in my drawer is history - It is beautiful, easy to apply, looks natural, stays on - what else is there? I use "Violet Ink" It is the best.
This eyeliner goes on easily in a thick or thin line. It doesn't tug on my eyelid as I apply it the way pencil liners do. For me, it lasts all day (12-14 hours). I bought this because of the good reviews here and I'm glad I did!
Great eyeliner! the gel glides on smoothy and produces a line as thick or thin as you want it. Nice rich color (espresso). it does crease after many hours so minus one lippy. I wish the packaging was more convenient. Kind of expensive but worth it.
