    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.

    amazing!

    Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

    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!

      Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

      I'm more of a liquid liner girl, but I read great things about this gel liner and decided to give it a shot. I'm not impressed but I don't hate it. It's takes a lot of work to get a nice amount of color from it. I find that I had to spend a few extra minutes on my usual routine, which is already long enough, to get a satisfying result. I doubt this will become a staple in my makeup bag.

      Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

      I haven't tried many high-end liners, but this product is a fantastic value. It's better than the more expensive brands I've tried. The color is potent, and it lasts all day when I use primer (I recommend using primer, though). When used with primer, it's difficult to remove, but I almost feel like that's a good thing. I have this in black and brown, because when I first bought it they didn't have black. I wish they sold more colors.

      Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

      I decided to buy this gel eyeliner after reading all the great reviews about it but what people are saying is true -- essence makes a really affordable option that lasts!

      The gel eyeliner is really easy to apply with an angled eyeliner brushes (both the ones that look bent at the top and the ones without that). Once you put it on and it dries, you are all set. It will stay put but the only thing is when you line the bottom of your eye, it will smudge just a tiny bit throughout a night out with the girls.

      Still a great product!

              Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

              I got so disappointed when I received this gel eyeliner. I have 2 other gel liners in silver and turquoise from Essence that I bought in Europe. They are excellent, I love them a lot. So I didn't think I would have an issue with this black one. I was mistaken. It is kind of dried out I think (at least the one I got), applied in chunks and wasn't true black.

                Hands down the best gel liner I have encountered. I purchased this liner out of curiosity, while I still owned the MAC fluidline. I will not repurchase MAC Fluid line.

                  I am new to gel liner. Thought I would try this as it was inexpensive and has good reviews. I am going to buy the mac gel liner as I have heard its one of the better versions.

                  I think if I usually used gel liner this product would be fine. More user error on my part.
