Right now my makeup obsession is winged eyeliner! At first I used a pencil, that was a disaster! Then I decided to try using an eyeliner pen. While it worked okay I always felt that I had limited control. Plus, my wings rarely turned out even. Prior to using this product I had always believed that gel eyeliner would be the hardest to use. The brush and pot intimidated me, so I avoided it. But after a self pep talk and some intense stretches, I finally gave in and tried it. To my surprise, it was by far the easiest way for me to achieve dramatic wings. Before purchasing this it took me about 10 minutes to apply my eyeliner with a pen, now five minutes tops. The numbers don't lie, this stuff is the nectar of Gods! The formula is so black, creamy, and goes a long way. I have used about half the pot in 3 months, but that is doing thick wings everyday! But use with cation! Let the liner dry a bit before you start to make facial expressions, no kidding pretend you have botox! This stuff will transfer everywhere and destroy your eyeshadow, so wait about a minute. This stuff looks crisp and percise even at the end of the day. It takes a lot of effort to take off because it is so pigmented! I would recommend this to anyone that wants to achieve bold winged liner looks.

I really like this eyeliner. I've been using it every day for probably a little over a year. I've only bought two pots, which goes to show that I little bit really goes a long way! I used to use Sephora's cream liner and while it was okay, it dried up very quickly. This stuff continues to stay moist and it's about $6 cheaper. I like the dark color of it, but it does smudge and crease a bit throughout the day. I found a solution though! I just run over it lightly with some liquid eyeliner and it makes it look darker and it makes it last all day! The brush it comes with is amazing too. It provides a thin line that can be built up. I really like the stuff and I'd recommend it!

Nothing has never "not-creased" on my hooded and oily eyelids. Nothing, ever until I tried this. First of all the quality of the gel and the brush is just spectacular. I managed to effortlessly create a wing as the brush is beautifully designed and the gel just glides on. It is rich and matte and expensive looking. So I just tried this in the morning, without any primers on, or powders or anything to make it not smudge and stay on. The same evening, the filck and the eyeliner was still there, just like new. You cannot beat the price too. All in all, a perfect, perfect product!!

This product is awesome! When I was getting ready in the morning I did a wing for my eyes using this product. I got home late that night and was too tired to take my makeup off. When I woke up the next morning, the wings were still intact (although they were faded a bit, of course). This product has amazing staying power. Would definitely recommend this product! Note: I did use Urban Decay primer potion prior to applying any eye products.

Not bad, but not smudge proof. Great for wings, and creases on me (though nothing has ever NOT creased on me), and very creamy. A better gel liner than MAC blacktrack. It's not this product; gel liner just doesn't work for me.

I've used this eyeliner for about 4 months now and while the pot is a mess and the outer edges have dried a tad, beyond that is still as good as new! I have been using gel eyeliner for as long as I can remember, and I think for the price this one is on point. The brush it comes with is not horrible, but definitely not as precise as can be so I would recommend using a silicone eyeliner brush to avoid it getting crusty so easily.

I don't find the product smudges or moves easily at all, and the pigmentation is great and easily buildable. It doesn't turn grey throughout the day which is a huge plus (reason why I HATE eyeliner felt tips).

Seriously don't know why there are so many bad reviews?!

Haaa! I didn't even know this was a gel liner because I've had it for several months and within a week or so, the consistency was so dry and chalky that "gel" was the furthest thing from my mind when looking for a descriptive word for this stuff. I'd describe it as more of a cream when new, and after owning it for a bit, although being tightly capped, it dries into a chunky, chalky mess inside the pot. The brush it came with does an alright job of applying the product, but it's so hard and stiff...it isn't very kind to your eyes. If I use this, I apply it with the slanted eyeliner brush from Eco Tools. I don't really like the formula either...it doesn't apply very cleanly, smudges badly, and goes on too thick for my taste. The good thing about this product is that you get quite a bit inside the pot, so it's not a total rip-off. But that's if you enjoy it long enough to actually keep it until it's used up. The only other gel liner I've owned also dried up to a petrified rock inside the pot, so I'm not sure if that's typical or if because I've only bought the drugstore variety. Maybe a higher end gel liner would be of better quality? I'll never know, because my short stint with them are over lol. Back to the felt tip liners I go!

Will NOT repurchase.

Honestly, I hate this product. I wanted to take a break from liquid eyeliners for a little while and see what all the fuss about gel liners was. I've tried a few gel liners, but this one was by far the worst. First of all, I do want to mention that the color is really nice. But that's the only thing I like about this liner. The formula is thick and sticky and does not apply well. It has a tendency to glob, even when I don't apply a lot at a time. It doesn't even dry! No matter how long I let it sit and dry, it never does. As soon as I stop squinting and open my eyes, it gets on my eyelids every time. And I have dry lids! Not oily! I absolutely had this stuff. Never ever buying this again.

I can't really review this product much because it dried out within 48 hours of me opening it. However, my first impression when I used it was that I liked the creamy consistency. It was very pigment but not too pigmented, and very build able. I don't recommend using the brush it comes with if you have almond shaped eyes as I found it was oddly shaped and too stiff to get a nice thin line. Overall the product was decent but the lasting power was not.
