I really like this liner -- I only have one in black but would consider buying another color too. The reason I like it is that it stays on all day long (through gardening, even swimming!!) The only thing is that I don't really like the pot form, but I don't know how else it would be better packaged. And after reading some of the reviews below about the liner drying out, I'm kind of worried now:) I will have to start wearing this every single day so that it doesn't go to waste!
These eyeliners are the best that I've tried (see review below). The Graphite shade is a slightly shimmery charcoal that is excellent if you want a softer look than black eyeliner. This looks better than the black when smudged IMO, because of the softer shade and the shimmer. This would be perfect if it were a wee bit more shimmery.
These eyeliners are the best that I've tried (see review below). The black shade is perfect for creating that classic, dramatic cat's eye line. It especially looks excellent when used on the upper lid only and paired with red lips. And nothing makes blue eyes pop more than black eyeliner. I personally don't like smudging it, because it ends up looking just dirty for some reason. Well, if you're going for that I-slept-in-my-makeup look, then sure, smudge away.
These eyeliners are the best that I've tried (see review below). However, I was very disappointed in Hunter, which is a dark, matte green that doesn't show up as green to me. I so wish that this were a more vibrant green with just enough shimmer to make the eyes pop.
These eyeliners are the best that I've tried (see review below). The sepia shade is a nice option if you want a more natural look.
another lemming bites the dust!
they last well, don't irritate my sensitve eyes & i love the little ink pots. however i can't get it to apply evenly, and neither did the BB MA. i tried several brushes which normally work well for cream/liquid liners & it still doesn't work.
the colours are pretty basic, and seem like different versions of black. also, be aware that the product may dry out to form a little hard lump in the bottom of the pot (as i've seen them at the counter).
ETA: Updated 6 years later: I have been using BB gel eyeliner for the past 7 years, and have used Sepia, Violet and Black Ink throughout. I really love the consistency, and the high pigmentation. And while these pigments do dry out with time, I managed to use my violet ink for 3 years before I had to throw it out (I would swipe my brush through mineral oil makeup remover first to help restore a smooth consistency). I also don't apply directly out of the jar- I scoop a little out on to a palette to work with and close the jar right away, which might help prolong my eyeliner life.
PROS: Smooth and easy application, strong pigment, wears very well, lovely colors.
CONS: While the e/l stays on all day, sometimes I notice some smudging that I need to clean under my eyes up after 8 hours or so. Not too noticeable though- just a slight darkening of the skin underneath my lower lashes.
PS. I have compared with MAC fluidlines (Macroviolet, Brassy), and have found the BB liners to be more pigmented, prettier (I found Macroviolet to be more brown toned than Violet Ink, and lighter), and longer wearing (fluidlines would patchily disappear by midday).
Overally I highly recommend BB gel eyeliners.
This is an expensive eyeliner, but I think that it's worth it, if only because it lasts all day without fading or flaking. The Violet Ink is a deep, slightly shimmery purple that makes my brown eyes pop. I imagine that this would look good on everyone.
LOVE THIS! The MA used Violet Ink on me and the color is really like a soft black, not purple. Its easy to apply and I find that it lasts all day. I use Stila #4 brush with it. Its pretty expensive for eyeliner ($18) but you get a lot of it and I love it!
I love this eyeliner! It definitely has the best staying power of all of the eyeliners I have tried. I can't wait to try out the Sepia (I got the Black one).
