      Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

      I like Essence products and except them as they are. I love their waterproof liquid eyeliner...it is 100% waterproof but the pen itself fades out quickly. For 2.99 I can live with that, considering most "waterproof" liners are not what they claim.
      I bought the gel liner because I was told that its the best way to achieve the perfect cat eye. Essence proved again to be %100 waterproof (!!!), but the product didn't glide on as smoothly as I would have liked.

        Pleasantly surprised by this product. It is amazing. I use it on a daily basis for work. It does not smudge, it applies wonderfully. The application is smooth and the color pigmentation is unbelievable for the price. Very happy with my purchase.

        Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

        I lost a bunch of my makeup in a flood last year, and I just recently got around to replacing my gel liner. Since I've had to replace so many things over so long a period, I wanted to find a cheaper alternative to my previous gel liner. I've had luck with many Essence "dupes" in my experience, so for such a low price, I didn't hesitate to try this product out. For my first impression, I was blown away by how smoothly the gel glides on, how rich the color, and its just-right consistency. However, after wearing this all day from morning to night several times, I've learned these things... 1) It's NOT waterproof. If applying to your waterline, it WILL run either out the corners, or from the top lashline into the bottom lashline, or both, after several hours. Since I never line my lower lashline, only the top, this is frustrating for me, and enough reason to remove a whole star. 2) I have very watery eyes AND live in extremely humid conditions where it isn't uncommon for us to get a rainstorm every day--yet even after touching and wiping the corners of my eyes all day, the parts of the liner that aren't residue DO stay in place very well without smudging or transferring to the crease of the eyelid as some gels do. 3) I've figured out a trick to minimal running on the corners of my eyes (disregarding the waterline issue), and that's to pat a thin layer of same-color eye shadow over my liner to seal in the product. There can still be some running, but as mentioned above, it's minimal. 4) This product dries fast and isn't meant to be smudgable, so application needs to be pretty quick! 5) This product comes off easily enough with baby shampoo, as well as micellar water. On the days where I'm wearing a lot of eye makeup, I just put some micellar water on a pre-wet makeup wipe and I've never had problems getting it completely off.

                I wet an angled liner brush and then swirl it around in the gel. After that I then glide the brush lightly and as close to my last line.
