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.
I was really disappointed with this one. I haven't used any eyeliners for a long time. I used to wear felt tip eyeliner years ago and I loved the easiness of it, it dried fast and it never smudged. I've been liking a natural make up look for years, so I've only used eyeshadow or pencil to line my eyes. I finally decided to try this one, because I saw a lot of good reviews of it.
It didn't work for me at all. I have strongly hooded eyes and after I applied it I was trying not to blink too much until it was dried. The problem was that it never dried. I was touching it every now and then realizing that it hadn't dried. I waited for 30 minutes and it still wasn't dried. I left it on and forgot to check on it until after few hours I looked at the mirror and scared myself. There was another line on my upper lid. The whole line had transfered there as well. It was a complete mess.
I used a primer, so lack of primer wasn't the reason this liner didn't work for me.
I tried it again later and same thing happened. I don't know how long it takes to dry, but I don't have time to wait for an eyeliner to dry for an hour or more.
I gave it to my friend who doesn't have hooded eyes and she likes it, but she also says it never dries completely.
I dont' think I will be purchasing another gel liner anymore. I'll stick to my pencils and if I ever feel like I need a harsh line on my eyes again, I'll be getting a felt tip liner.
I usually use liquid but wanted to try some gel liner and when I saw this I bought it immediately since it wasn't expensive. It smudges on me quite alot and doesn't last as long throughout the day. Lasts much longer over eyeshadow.
I don't have oily skin and I always use foundation and primer so I expected it to last a little longer. Colourwise and formula-wise I reckon its brilliant for a drugstore gel liner.
Have been using this for almost half a year now, & it was my first gel liner.
When I first started out using it I was very impressed with it because it went on VERY smoothly without any mess (I was using a pencil liner previously and so had not much experience with gel/liquid liners). In other words it's quite fool proof. Hardly smudged even after 10 hours of having it on. Which is all good.
After using it for a few months I realised that the liner was significantly drier in the pot. The good thing was that it did not affect application much.
I usually have make-up on for 10 hours or more so it is really difficult to find a liner that hardly smudges - when I am outdoors for most of that 10 hours in this hot and humid weather that Singapore has, the liner smudges quite a bit on my top lids and a little at the bottom at the end of the day. Having said this, the smudging can probably be overlooked in this case because my lids are pretty oily & the weather here is insanely hot & humid.
I still love this product though, and will definitely buy it again - because the price & quality is one of the best around. It still works perfectly (without smudging much) when I am indoors most of the day & am not out in the hot & humid weather (hence vulnerable to sweat and the heat!)
I love this eyeliner. I have oily lids so sometimes it rubs off, but I don't have a primer or a base, so your mileage may vary. It's super black and the but I prefer to use ELFs angled eyeliner brush. It it easy and smooth to apply, and I love it!
This is my first ever gel liner purchase. For the last few years, I've been using the Rimmel Exaggerate liquid liner. While that still works for me, I love this even more!! It stays on my waterline, doesn't smudge or budge and the brush that comes with it distributes the product perfectly. I actually don't have anything bad to say about it except that the little plastic top that comes on the brush is pretty useless, but that can be easily overlooked :)
This has started my newfound love for gel liners and I will be trying different ones once this has run out. That may take a while though, considering I use this every day, a little goes a long way! (Ooh that ryhmed!) For anyone that doesn't want to spend so much more on a high-end liner, TRY THIS. It's good quality, pigmented and long lasting. It doesn't get better for a drugstore liner :)
Love this product. The brush that comes with it is great and has found a place with my other makeup brushes. The black is highly pigmented and glides on my lids smoothly. I highly recommend this product.
