I got the eggplant-colored one accidentally and I must say it's pretty good for a drugstore gel liner. It stays put for a long time. Especially on my oily lids. But the brush that comes with it is pretty crappy and hard to clean. So don't even bother with it. Some say that it dries quickly (in the pot) but I've had mine for a couple of months and its still good. Just close it tightly
UPDATE: I was laughing my butt off and my eyes started to water. And it smudged. Still lasts for a long time. At least 8hrs given your eyes don't water. Could be an alternative for Bobbi brown gel liner.
This is my everyday eyeliner it lasts longer than a pencil- typeliner and the effect is not as dramatic as a liquid one. This liner tends to smudge if you have oily lids so try to use a primer on your eyelids. The liner glides on smoothly so it's suitable for beginners. However, I don't use the brush provided, it looks more like a lipstick brush to me and it's quite impossible to draw a thin line with it.
I was not too fond of this gel liner. I've repurchased twice but I will not be repurchasing again. This liner does not wear well on me, it seems to smudge and fade away within a couple of hours. My HG is the skinfood gel liner and that lasts on me all day, even on the waterline. I did not like the free brush it came with either as it picked up too much product and I found it harder to get a straight line, I prefer my MAC small angled brush for more precise application. The colour was not as rich as other liners I've tried either.
I bought this product because I saw alot of people using it in make up tutorials and it looked pretty good.
I think the product is quite good, on the packaging it says that it is smudge and water proof. Yes it is water proof but for the smudge proof part it did kinda smudge after a few hours. I'd have to say the little brush it comes with it is really CRAPPY! I couldn't even apply the gel liner properly, everytime I try to draw a thin line it ends up thick and unsmooth. So I tried using my own eyeliner brush and the application turned out to be good and smooth.
My go-to eyeliner; resists daily "wear and tear" and it is waterproof (which is a plus). Easy to apply, and (when applying) does not take much longer then using a regular stick eyeliner. Stays on longer then a stick eyeliner aswell.Although it seems really small, the pot lasted me half a year ( keep in mind that I put on MASSIVE coats of this eyeliner )
Although it claims to be smudgeproof, you can actually accidentally smudge it when wiping away excess powder, concealer etc. that you apply around the eyes.
Still, one of the best eyeliners I've bought, (and for $10, its perfect for students (: )
I just now bought this gel liner. I usually use Maybelline Ultra Liner/ waterproof/ jet black. It has been my favorite for years. One tube will last me about a year. It stays on all day and it it truly jet black. So when I went and bought the gel liner I was surprised at how expensive it was for the quantity. It is easy to apply, but it only looks good for about 3-4 hours. Well if you are any normal human you need it to work far longer than that. I have oily skin and after about 5 hours I look like my eyes are black, and I only use a thin line. I wont buy this productt again, I will go back to using the Ultra Liner.
This was the first gel liner that I purchased at SDM and I definately don't regret buying this. The brush is soft on the eyelids but firm enough to deliver the liner onto my eye properly. I use it almost everytime I put makeup on and the black colour is really pigmented. I've had the same pot for about 8 months now and it's still almost as creamy as when I first started using the gel liner. Maybe because I have somewhat oily skin, this gel liner starts smudging to the bottom of my eye after several hour, but with a primer the smudging is minimal. I would buy this product again, but I won't next time only because I want to try MAC's Blacktrack Fluid Line.
Really impressed with this, and wasn't necessarily expecting to be. I am not a huge fan of Maybelline products, although I don't really have a good reason for feeling this way. Maybe it goes back to memories of how horridly strong some of their products used to smell back in the 80's?
Got this in brown yesterday. I had been planning on trying the L'Oreal HIP gel liner, but the store was out of it. This has lasted ALL day on me today, including through a nap on the couch, and watery eyes. 9+ hours after applying it this morning, it still looks great. What a nice surprise.
The brown is just a flat, matte brown, no coppery tones or sparkle, and not super dark. I didn't use the brush that came with the eyeliner to apply, but the application was smooth and the color is nicely pigmented. It only took one coat for even coverage, which honestly is more than I can say of the two MAC Fluidlines I have, which go on spotty. I'd be interested in trying some of the other colors if they wear as well as this does.
There was a makeup fair at one of the malls near my home & I picked this baby up in Blackest Black for about SGD20, including a brush & bottle of eye & lip makeup remover, so I suppose it wouldn't be wrong to say it was a steal. :p
Prior to getting this, I'd never used - or even heard of - gel eyeliner. But I wanted to try something new & I didn't regret it. For starters, the brush, despite being synthetic, doesn't feel rough at all, even on my sensitive skin. The liner goes on easily & smoothly, is easy to use (I never had any trouble, though I was a first-timer), is a lovely matte black, doesn't cause any discomfort & best of all, lasts the whole day without flaking or smudging, even on my oily skin & in humid weather. Very impressive for a drugstore eyeliner!
love this eyeliner! it's a great, cheap buy for the amount of product you get! it's super black, which i love, and a little goes a long way. even though most drugstore items have crap applicators, even this applicator is not half bad. i like using an angled brush, or an angled eyeliner brush for it. great for smoking out an eye with a little black eyeshadow. & when you set it with a little black eyeshadow, it does last all day!
