I absolutely LOVE the colors. The brown gives me a very natural look and I have even gotten compliments on how pretty I look with such light make up on. I only wear mascara on a day-to-day basis. Eyeliners are a sometimes... so when I wear this brown one, people say I have an extra 'glow' to me. It's a nice compliment!
Anyway, it's too bad it smudges on my eyelids. I've heard a lot of "smudge-free/water-proof" stuff about this but with my eyelids, they are NOT. Even with Urban Decay Primer Pot, it smudges soon. I have asian half mono-lids, so most eyeliner smear on me, so it is no surprise, but I thought it would last a lot longer.
It's too bad. I love the color and how easy it is to glide on. However, it seems I can only ever wear this during short trips out or else I find myself constantly digging for my mirror! The price was nice because I also got myself a decent brush for future gel liners! However, I would definitely NOT repurchase this because of the smudging.
The only drugstore eyeliner I've tried so far that I liked. The black liner is really pigmented, and the little brush that is included is excellent. It is sturdy but flexible, doesn't splay, and is small enough to allow for precision (moreso than any other e/l brush I've used) and thin lines. This is also great to use on the waterline. This liner lasts longer than other d/s liners I've used, but unfortunately, still doesn't last long on its own. After about an hour, I'll find slight smudges underneath the outer corners of my eyes. It does hold up well when used with a primer and eyeshadow to set, as does any other eyeliner. Love the sturdy jar too. I've dropped this twice and not a single crack or scratch to be found. Right now this is my go-to liner for its pigmentation, ease of application, decent staying power, and price, shall other liners fail me.
I've tried quite a few gel liners, and I saw a glowing review of this eyeliner on youtube so I decided to give it a go. The packaging is typical of most gel liners, and comes with a little brush to use. I actually quite like the brush a lot more than I expected to, its easy to get a neat line. I liked how you can build up the intensity as well, as it doesn't have the most pigmentation in the world, but that can easily be fixed. As far as this "lasting 24 hours" as the packaging claims, I'm calling malarkey. If you have oily lids this absolutely will not last all day (much less 24 hours, and why would you want that anyway you makeup junkie?! lol). I even used primer which didn't seem to make much of a difference, especially on one eye where it almost disappeared. Sad face. I should say the only eyeliner that seems to stay put on me all day is Make Up For Ever aqua liners or Wet n Wild h2o proof liquid liner, both of which are not gel liners at all.
Overall, this isn't a bad gel liner, I just wish it had more staying power on me! For others this may very well work. Pigmentation is good, and I just love the little brush, this is saying a lot as I am a makeup artist and have a plethora of nice brushes already haha.
This was the first gel/cream eyeliner I tried... after spending a long time thinking pencils were the best, I found out I was horribly wrong! This is very pigmented, yet build-able for very dramatic looks. I use this with my eco-tools angled liner brush (but the brush it comes with is OK too). I use this around on my lash line, tight-lining and on my waterline. It stays on forever. The price is not bad, as the product lasts quite a while. I haven't had any problems with drying or anything like that. Packaging is great. I love everything about this eyeliner.
EDIT: Had this for quite some time now, and still haven't experienced any drying out. Still love the liner!
I purchased this liner..well, just because I wanted to try gel liners. The only one I'd really tried before was Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Liner, and I definitely can't afford to keep buying that. Anyway, the color I purchased was Charcoal, and it's a bit shimmery, but not noticeable unless you look closely. The brush is pretty easy to use. I can wear this eyeliner pretty much all day, and I've only had to touch it up once or twice in the entire time I've used it. However, it does tend to fade a bit throughout the day, especially if you're active. Not sure why, but it does. It doesn't rub onto your lower lids, but it just fades a little. Though I do like that it fades a bit, because it makes it much easier to remove by the end of the day. However, if you really want "lasting drama", you probably shouldn't get this. This liner gave me a more subtle look for everyday wear.
I purchased this after my MAC fluidline was nearly empty and I needed a gel liner stat. I have to say I wasn't really impressed. The color didn't seem to go on as dark as it seemed in the jar. I needed to re-apply a few times to get a darker look. It could just be because I was spoiled from the fluidline but, who knows. I may purchase again, but in black next time.
LOVE this stuff!! Very pigmented and very smooth, I use an angled liner brush to apply this to my lashline and I don't need much product at all. I also use this to tightline, and the only drawback there is I do get some transfer to my waterline but that doesn't bug me too much, I got the same thing from MUFE's Aqua Creamliners which are supposed to be waterproof, so for half the price I can deal with it! It probably has more to do with how far into the inner corner I go with the liner too. Anyways, overall I can't say enough about how great this is!
I love this gel liner, you can use the brush it comes with also! it goes on really easily and lasts all day. Not much else i can say but it's a really good product!
Great product! Smooth intense black that actually stays put all day on my lash-line! My eyelids are fairly oily, but this manages to last for the entire day without any touch-ups! The brush that comes with it is alright, but I prefer to use my own. I use this also for tight-lining too and it works well and doesn't run on me. My only problem is using this on my waterline, it doesn't hold up so well. But, I do like this product very much and will mostly likely repurchase!!
rly gr8 takes 4 ev 2 remove if u mess up gives u amazing control even works on ur water line
