      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.

        I really like this product from essence. If you are a starter then try this gel liner. It is smooth and stays put for a long time.

              Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

              I wanted to try a gel eyeliner. I was not sure if I would like it or have enough skill to apply it. I read reviews of some lower priced gel pot liners, and decided on this one- because this price is low and all of the good reviews. Since I didn't have a tiny angle brush to use for this, I got the one they sell from this brand- also at good price. It works really well; It's nice the bristles are pink so you can see how much is on the brush. The liner itself is pretty easy to use and apply, I dipped and wiped off the excess cleanly on the inside of the jar. I didn't get the clumpy mess experience that some other reviewers talk about, I must have gotten a fresh one? It goes on as a true rich matte black color and stayed on until I removed it with makeup remover (which wasn't difficult; maybe I have a good one because other people said they had difficulty). I tried to rub it before I wore it in public to see if it would smudge easily, and barely moved.. it really stays in place. I'm glad I didn't buy a more expensive one, because this one works so well for me I don't think I will look for a different one.

              This was hard dried up. Returned for refund, didn't want to exchange for the same thing, got refund minus my points I used towards it. Not right that you aren't given your points back when the product was unuseable.

                    Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

                    Probably one of the greatest beauty buys for under five bucks! This little pot is creamy, pigmented, and long lasting (that being said, you'll definitely need an oil-based make up remover.)

                    I've been able to create many looks with this product, from a simple cat eye to a smokey looks.

                    But I highly recommend keeping a tight lid on this, because the longer it is exposed to air the clumpier it gets.

                      This was my first gel eyeliner and it's exactly what I needed if not better, also you really can't beat the price for the quality you're getting. I use the Sigma E65 brush btw to apply this and it creates the perfect wing.
