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.

          Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

          I think I may have gotten one that was older or had been opened because it seemed really dry. Once I got a bit of the top layer off it was really smooth and creamy. I haven't bought the brush that was advertised beside it, but used an angle brush. This is a great waterproof formula. Can hold up to a lot of wet rubbing, but it isn't going to run or disappear if you get caught in a little rain. one of my all time favorite brands and so inexpensive!

            I've never used a gel liner before, so I got this product thinking the pricing was right and the reviews are pretty solid. It's my go-to eyeliner product now. Super easy to apply, and I've used it with both natural and winged looks. The best part of this product is its lasting power. I live in Miami, and I usually sweat off my eye make-up by the end of the day, but this one does not smudge or run, and seems to last all day.

                Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

                I purchased this based on Reddit recommendations for best Essence beauty products and I was not disappointed. The product stayed in place all day, even through a pretty intense workout. I have deep set eyes and did not have any problems with the product transferring to the top of my lid like I have with other products. I could see where it would be difficult to apply if you are not used to using the gel + brush combo, especially near the inside corners of the eye where you want a thinner line. The product was easy to remove with micellar water.

                This eyeliner formula is very dry. Not a lot picks up on the brush and its hard to work with. Definetly not for beginners.
