    super black, stays all day

    By Kat

    Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

    I don't like buying expensive eyeliners so I'm always on the hunt for something cheap and good. I was using the elf gel liner but it faded throughout the day, especially in the inner corner. This one stays perfectly black all day and doesn't smear, even when it rains. I waited a couple months before posting this review as some of the other reviews said it dried out after a couple uses but that doesn't appear to be happening to me!

    Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

    This is a great value. Works just as well and lasts as long as the higher end gel or creme liners I've used. Even though it dries out kind of fast its still worth the money since its so affordable.

          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!
