I like this better then my MAC & Clinique gel liners! I wanted an affordable MAC blacktrack replacement because mine was half full and had already dried out. Not only is this better then MAC's formula wise, its extra dark black in color. Its so dark it looks like liquid liner on the skin. Highly pigmented color, 1 line does the trick, no streaking or weak pigmentation here. Price wise it was only $5.99 and you can get these BOGOF most of the time. Oh and the size is bigger than MAC's at half the price! (MAC's = .10 oz, JANE= .17 oz) Like the packaging says, its very hydrating. When you look at it, and try it on your skin you can see, and feel how creamy it is. This makes applying a breeze, but it dries fast and has a matte finish. The slant tip brush is completely usable for this, and is a very thin slant tip so it creates a nice thin line. Dont even bother bringing out your high end liner brushes , this brush is awesome!!!! Also, like the box says, its truly long lasting, water resistant, and smooth. I couldnt be happier. I cant wait to find jane on sale, Im buying every color they offer. (a dark brown, dark purple, & navy). From browsing the boards I heard these are just as good as Loreal HIP if not better, and better then WnWs too. I wish everyone would try this liner. Perfect color, perfect wettish formula to go on creamy... couldnt be happier! No more MAC gel liners for me!

I got this a couple of months ago and it works pretty well. It stays for a good while on my waterline too, though I doubt anything could all day since I have contacts and my eyes get watery and dry a lot. It comes with a decent brush but I'm using my avon dual ended brush at the moment since it's just more convenient for me. I never tried MAC's fluidline, but I heard this is just as good if not better. After having this awhile I find myself having to apply more on my brush now since I suppose it's more of a creme than a gel. This little pot has lasted a while. I would repurchase it for only $5.99.

Like many makeup & vintage obsessed mavens, I had been lusting after MAC Blacktrack Fluidline to create the perfect, striking black cateye. Blacktrack, your services are no longer needed here!
Whenever I do my makeup, I do cateye liner. This is just perfect for that. And the brush, despite my suspicions, is perfect for cateye liner application! Plus, you get so much more product compared to MAC! This shade is strikingly black pigmented. Also, it is wonderfully creamy and doesn't skip across the lid.
As much as I love the intensity of this Black & the stunning Wine shade, Jane needs to make a wider range of colors. I am really hoping they come out with an intense, emerald green!

Creamy gel goddess, oh how I love thee ♥ Quite simply the best product I've ever applied to my eyes. I am reviewing this in black.
First off the product itself is so soft and creamy, making it very easy to apply. I can go back over the same area to get a deeper color without the flaky mess other cream liners have given me with that step. I tightline my upper lashline in this and again use it on my water line and it lasts the entire day.
I will go a step further and reveal that I did not take off my makeup for a weekend when I was sick *bad I know, but I was too sick to move* and it was still tightlined nicely through the flu 3 days later. I was sold:) (picture in profile, it is lighter on the waterline than it was when freshly applied but it is from 3 days of wear there, please excuse the messy brows as I was so impressed with the eyeliner I wanted to get a shot of it)
The brush alone... *The Brush* Should be in lights:) Sorry I get carried away when talking about this wonderful brush LOL It deserves to be highlighted though. I really love this brush! Soft and yet precise, not scratchy, easy to work with, angled, everything you want in a brush..it has it!! I cannot believe it came with a drugstore product! Stunned. I would buy this product for the brush alone really, but knowing how great the creamy goodness is inside that little pot.. and it's lasting power...Oh I will be back for more than the brush ♥ ♥ ♥

Using Lumene eye makeup primer, this stays on my top lids pretty well. It fades/transfers a bit after 8+ hours, but stays more or less true. I can't use it on my waterline--comes right off!
It's somewhat dry in consistency + matte black. I'd say it is more a cream/gel than a straight gel. It comes in a screw-top glass jar.
I use a separate brush I found at an art suppy--I didn't like the brush it came with (too thick for my tastes).
Not a bad product, but I'm looking more for something that can be used on my waterline.

I use gel/cream liners from BB, MAC, and Stila regularly and love their staying power. I haven't "invested" in a black liner from these companies b/c I just don't use black that often, but when I had a chance to pick up a Jane gel liner for 5.99 I jumped on it. I'm so glad I did!
This black liner is creamy and smooth and *very* dark and pigmented. No glimmer or sheen that I can see--just a true, rich black. Staying power seems good--when I wiped excess on my hand, it didn't fully come off with my oil cleanser and I had to resort to eye makeup remover. Good sign!
I tried using the little brush that came with it the first time and tapped the brush a few times in the little pot--whoa, nelly! I didn't need so much to get a dark, thin line. I prefer using it with my trusty fine liner brushes as I'm used to them and have better control, but the brush that comes with is not bad for the price.
Definitely worth the price, and I may check out the wine next.

ZOMG. This is so beautiful!!!
Jane's new Be Pure Mineral Gel Eyeliners retail for $5.99 at your local Walgreens/Wal-Mart. The pots are a whopping 5 grams, and the colors are: Black, Wine Blue (it may have another name than blue, but it's blue) and brown. I had been hearing raves on this so I went ahead and picked up the black and purple.
I have tried every gel liner there is - Stila Smudgepots, MACs fluidline, Bobbi Brown's Ink, Loreal HiP gel liner, I'm sure I'm forgetting others, and now this.
This hands-down is my favorite.
The formula is fantastic - BBs and MACs are very gel-ly, inky, and thus do not come off as opaque as I need. Nor are they as stiff and easy to place. When I need BLACK liner, I need BLACK liner. I'm Indian, so I am used to the kajal - soot-ish eyeliner. Stila and Loreal come in and fill for when that's needed, but alas. Stila's smudgepots are just too thick, when you load the brush you have to put so much pressure that there is too much product and thus, too much of a hot mess. Loreal HiP was one of my favorites, but it dried out in a month, and after two or so weeks, it wasn't as creamy as I'd like. It'd also crumble if it was layered a bit.
These gel liners are a perfect mix - they are not total creams or gels - the consistency is in between. The wine is to die for - it reminds me of MAC Nocturnelle shadow. The black is BLACKER than the Loreal - I did a few experiments and the more dramatic of the two definitely is Jane's.
The brush that it comes with is actually awesome - synthetic bristles. The brush is super short-handled, but the brush is really great, I love using it. The price and amount of product are AMAZING, wow. .5 more grams than the next "cheapest" alternative - Loreal HiP and $3 less to boot.
GO GET IT!!
