Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

I specifically purchased this gel for the cat eyes look. I used an angled brush and started off by applying lightly to test it out. Doing it this way results in uneven coloring and drying. When I applied heavier uses of the product, it became runny and smudged. I don't have oily skin so I can definitely blame it on the product. It's not the worst eyeliner gel out there but it's too inconsistent for me.

          Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

          I saw this in a magazine once and decided to try it since the price was so cheap...I thought "what do I have to lose?" At the time, I've only been using the Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner. They run about $24. After using the Essence gel liner for the first time, I became addicted! It glided on so smoothly and it lasted all day! I always thought using a high-end product would yield high-end results. This was actually the exception. My Bobbi Brown gel liner actually runs into the outer corner creases of my eye as I wear it throughout the day. I live in Florida and I expect this to happen due to the heat and humidity. Surprisingly, the Essence one doesn't give me that effect.

          This is now my go-to eyeliner. I just wished it came in more colors than the black I'm using now.

          I'm a big fan of gel eyeliners and I prefer it over pencils and liquids. They're much easier to apply because they glide on so smoothly. If people are having a hard time with it, it maybe because of the brush they're using.

          Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

          When my favorite liquid liner was discontinued I found it impossible to replace with something else I liked. My biggest problem was the brush is hard to control and i make a mess. So I turned to gel liners hoping they were easier/less messy. This is the first one I tried (so don't have others to compare it to) and I love it! It's much easier to to control the line you're making with an angled brush (I purchased the Essence Precise Eyeliner Brush with this liner). Although like others said it DOES dry quickly, but not so much that it's impossible to apply. You must also clean the brush very thoroughly when you're through or it becomes hard and stiff with leftover product. This liner lasts a long time. I tested it out at the gym. I workout very vigorously and sweat a ton and don't always think to remove my makeup before going in. It did fade by the end but didn't run down my face or smear all over which is all I care about. I would definitely recommend anyone try this!

              Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

              Most liner pencils irritate my eyes and liquids run out, so I tried using gels. My Rimmel eyeliner was great, but still not quite what I was looking for- I would blink multiple times in a row and the liner would smudge. Rimmel also wasn't exactly inexpensive. The Essence eyeliner was definitely worth the price! It glides on really smoothly and is super easy to apply. I like taking my time when I put make up on and it takes less than a minute and a half to do each eye. All you need is to get a make up brush and vuala! Glides on like liquid liner. I'm not sure about how it is for others, but I run and play a lot of sports and I have yet to have a smudging problem since I started using this eyeliner. My only regret is that it doesn't exactly come out easily- I either use make up removing lotion or just fall asleep with it on. Awesome product though! Would definitely buy again.
