    Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

    I've never used Essence products before. I bought a couple of products from them along with this liner. I really liked this liner, compared to the Elf gel liner. I like that the color of this gel liner is so richly black, and also long lasting. Unlike the Elf gel liner, this one didn't smudge or migrate . This is not my holy Grail gel liner!

      Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

      I have oily monolids and have troubles with creasing when it comes to eyeliner.
      I had heard wonderful things about this liner, and maybe I bought a bad one, but from what I've experienced, I'm not impressed.

      I didn't keep track exactly how long it stayed put for, but when I would check my liner in the middle of my day (~5 hr), my problem area (center of the lid) had creased and the liner almost seemed to disappear since it had flaked away to nothing. Sometimes the flakes would actually fall onto my cheeks, though not too much. I would also like to add, I had to get a lot onto my brush for it to glide on properly.

      Take for granted, I expect a lot from my eyeliner, my ideal is 12hr wear, that's waterproof, smudge-proof, flake-proof, and crease-proof; and sadly, this one just was not for me.

      Favorite Eyeliner to Date!

      Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

      I admit that this isn't an "everybody eyeliner", but for me it lasts all day (when allowed to dry for a few seconds) and it's a pretty matte black color.

            Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

            When I first bought the liner, it worked well and was creamy and pigmented. After a few uses, I noticed it was drying out and already separating from the jar. That was the first jar, I thought it was just a dud so I purchased another one..nope, same thing. I decided to give it one final chance which is the pot I'm on now and I am still having the same issue. I don't think I will repurchase, 3 for 3 being duds is enough for me.

                This is honestly better than any other gel eyeliners out there. First of all, you cannot beat the price. And secondly, especially for the price, you cannot beat how pigmented and long-lasting this product is! I honestly prefer this gel eyeliner over the Maybelline gel eyeliner. I bought mine a while back but I still have A LOT left over! Definitely recommend!

                  I use this eyeliner mostly everyday to do my wing eyeliner and it stays put it'll start smudging in my inner corner after about 10 hours because of my oily lids.

                  Very Disappointed

                  Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

                  This has so many great reviews I decided to buy plus the price is great. I had never used a gel eyeliner before and this almost made me think gel liners weren't for me with the disappointing results. The first 4 uses it was creamy (with each use it got less and less creamy) on the brush but when I would try and apply to eye it would tug and wasn't very pigmented. It started drying and even though I was able to keep it creamy with hacks but how it "worked" wanted me to stick with liquid eyeliner. I decided to give another gel eyeliner from a different brand a try and Maybelline didn't disappoint! I would say pass on this..

                      Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

                      I've been Wanting to experiment with using a gel eyeliner but didn't want to fork out the cash for a more expensive brand in case I didn't like the gelconsistency. I bought this at my local ulta. It glides on smooth, its creamy, and long lasting. This has converted me over to gel eyeliner as opposed to my favorite liquid liner.The only con is that they only have this in the color black.

                      This is easily the best eyeliner I've used. It's highly pigmented and easy to apply. I love this for the water line because once it dries, it's completely water proof and isn't going anywhere. Best part, it's really cheap!
