Not impressed with this product at all i was debating between buying this and MAC but thought id try this as its alot cheaper now i realise you get what you pay for. At first at seems great got a good little brush for easy, mistake free application but after a couple of hours it had smeared and half of it had come off even though i had foundation and eyeshadow on my eyelids, the colours not that intense but you can go over it a few times to make it darker. The only good thing about this eyeliner is the brush. I will probably use it again as the pot looks like it will last a long time but I will buying a MAC one for special occasions. Do not waste your money on this, pay more for better quality!
After hearing about how this was comparable to MAC's gel liner Blacktrack, I had to get this as it was a fraction of the high-end price. First of all, I want to say the little brush it comes with is absolutely amazing! The bristles are stiff and dense enough for me to create a sturdy, smooth flick at the end of my eye, which I love! One thing I don't love as much about the product is its staying power. Even after priming my eyelid, using powder AND using an eyeliner seal, this smudged all over within an hour or two of wear. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, but then again I have oily lids and I don't really expect my eyeliner to stay on for that long. But 2 hours? Other than that, I love how intensely black and pigmented the colour is, and how creamy the formula is. This glides on beautifully and I have had no problems whatsoever with it flaking off or not 'drying', as many other reviewers have experienced. Overall, quite a good product. If I somehow manage to find a way to increase its staying power, I will repurchase.
This product confuses me. I tried it and it didn't seem to dry. I have hooded eyes, so I can't use a product that is very slow to dry. I think that the L 'oreal liner is much better than this one.
I went in looking for L'Oreal's Cream HIP Liner and couldn't find it in the stores. Then I turned around and saw a huge display for these and noticed they were on sale, so I picked one up as I couldn't get to MAC as I had run out of my Fluidlines in Dipdown.
The reason I'm giving this 4 stars is because if you're used to using Fluidlines, then the first thing you're going to notice is its lack of pigment. What takes one swipe with MAC takes a good 2-3 coats of this. But ironically I find this one much better for casual day wear because you can smudge it more easily with the lighter pigment. And if you're new to gel or cream liners, this is actually a good one for you to practice with, because you have to layer the liner more than once in order to get a deep true color (I got Espresso) and then there's less chance of screwing it up.
I find the lasting power to be pretty good but as with most gel liners, if you have a poor base under it, it's going to smudge or stain no matter what. Always try to make sure that you're wearing either powder on your eye lids or eyeshadow to help it stick (and this is coming from someone who wears a thick eye cream all over my eyes). I found this one to give me less of the 'matching' crease line at the end of the day. Again, that's due to the lack of pigment. So yes it's going to take you a little longer to put it on. Where it really wins is the price, which is pretty much half of Fluidlines.
I love this so much! It is really pigmented, it stays on my upper lash line and my waterline all day, doesn't smudge or move :)
The brush that comes with it is awesome, and I'm a beginner at Gel Eyeliner and this brush made it soooo easy to apply. I will definately be re-purchasing it (if it ever runs out! That tiny pot lasts FOREVER!!!!!) :)))
I was really surprised with the pigmentation of this product. It goes on the lid very smooth and creamy. The brush that comes with it works well, not quite thin enough to create a nice wing. It lasted really well on a night out, not transferring to my upper lid at all.
I'm really happy with this product, definitely recommended! And I love the little pot it comes in <3
Goes on very smoothly and is very pigmented, but does not stay on throughout the day. It smudges and slips, and I have to keep fixing it with pencil at least two hours after application. I like it as a line beneath false lashes, but rarely wear it on it's own. I'm on a hunt for a new gel liner, although I might buy this again if I don't find one before I run out. (Which will be ages from now, as I barely use it!)
* Very dark in colour (good for drama - like the product states).
* Comes with a brush.
* Easy to apply.
* Glides smoothly.
* Smudges really easily throughout the day (especially for me, since I have monolids).
* Not long lasting.
* Colour fades with time.
My own experience:
When I first applied it, I thought wow - it's so dark and glides so smoothly. I really did like it, as it was so easy to apply, and had that 'dramatic' effect that I wanted. It was really dark as well, not like many gel liners that often fade to a grey on application.
However, I quickly realised throughout the day that it smudged far too easily and was a disaster for monolids (smudged onto the crease, when I closed my eyes it looked like a wreck).
Not only this, but as dark as it was on first application, it quickly faded to a grey by the end of the day. Although this product was not a success for me, perhaps this only applies to monolids.
I would not consider repurchase.
This is my new favorite eyeliner! I tried this because i'm tired of using a pencil. I'm so glad i did. Its so easy to apply and goes on smooth. I have brown eyes so i dont usually like black eyeliner. I bought the brown eyeliner and its the perfect color! The brush that comes with it is great and it doesnt take much when you put it on. I have tried mac fluidline and mac powerpoint pencil eyeliner, but this one works great for the price and i will definitely keep purchasing!!
I'm not positive I'd buy this gel eyeliner again.
I like the brush
It goes on smoothly
I like the pigmentation, it's definitely dark.
It takes FOREVER to dry, and is smudgy.
I've only used this a couple times but so far it's a good product for the price.
