Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

So I bought this eyeliner because I've always wanted to try out a gel liner! I didn't want an expense one because I didn't know if I would like the fact that I have to use a brush to apply it. However it worked AMAZING when applied with an angled brush! HOWEVER!, two weeks later I went to use it again (after using it a couple of times in between)... and It was dried out! I was completely shocked because it was like two different products! I tried putting a little water in it but no good! Not the best gel liner! :(

    Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

    First pot I got I loved and used up, second pot I got, it is terrible. I think it is being made by a different manufacture now.

    Dry, clumpy, difficuly to apply to brush, and once it is on the brush it is in clumps.

    If you do manage to work with it, for the price it does stay on long and has nice pigment.

    I hope they go back to what it used to be, because it used to be so amazing. I will not be buying this again in the future.

      Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

      Before trying Essence Gel Liner, in past years I had used other gel liners, two different brands from a department store and one from a drugstore. I think that Essence is as good as the expensive ones and better than the previously tried drugstore liner.

      I like this eyeliner overall, but for me the quality that makes it outstanding in comparison to the others is its ability to look freshly-applied from morning to night. When I am ready to take my makeup off at the end of the day, this eyeliner looks as if it had been put on just a minute ago instead of several hours ago. I look in the mirror expecting to see the usual – eyeliner faded almost to the point of not being visible, making my eyes look tired – but instead I see bright eyes. Such a welcome change! Speaking of taking it off at the end of the day, when it's time to go, this eyeliner, tenacious as it is while wearing it, does not require extraordinary effort to remove. The price of this eyeliner is less than the aforementioned drugstore liner. In conclusion, it's all "pros" and no "cons" for me.

      Fantastic! No smudge/transfer

      By kss

      from Sacramento, CA

      Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

      My absolute favorite drugstore gel liner! It even does circles around some high end ones. I have oily eyelids and find it near impossible for a gel liner not to smudge or transfer that is also opaque, that is, aside from this one!! (and macs fluidline and bbs liner, but those are way more expensive). It would've been my absolute HG gel liner if it weren't for the fact that it is not as dark as macs fluidline. But that doesn't mean that it's not greatly pigmented, because it is! it's even more opaque than bbs. Honestly, I reach for this everyday; it's super cheap and amazing. It's opaque and doesn't smudge or transfer on my lids even through a full day. Definitely try it out!!

          Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

          I got this because of all the great reviews. I was so surprised by how horrible this product is. Firstly, it's very thick formula, and difficult to spread and apply. If you prefer a thin line like me, you will have no shot with this product. It's not very pigment and hard to spread out, so you end up with a chunky line. It also runs with just water. I tried it 2x and end up throwing it out.

              Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

              I was excited to try this product because of all the great reviews, however I found that this product smears very easily and would end up on the top of my eyelid. It also faded throughout the day. I prefer Kat Von D tattoo liner even though the application of it is dry

              I am writing this review from India. Current temp- 94 degrees on a sweltering midafternoon. I just came back from running a bunch of errands, since 10 AM. My eyeliner is intact! Both upper lid and the waterline shows no sign of smudging. The only eyeliner that has managed to do this, since I have tried many other brands over the years whenever I visit. I gifted one to my friend here and she had the same experience. Sold!
