    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 love this product!! It does not dry out easily like other gel liners I have used in the past. Goes on super easy.

      Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

      It's good for the price but if you go over it like twice it starts to get somewhat clumpy and cracks . Also it is somewhat hard to remove so I recommend buying makeup remover. (:

          Essence gel eyeliner is very inexpensive, yet one of the best gel liners I have purchased. It takes a bit of practice to learn how to apply it.

            Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

            So I have tried a few gel liners in the past, but they all smudge or melt and then I look like I drew a line on my eyelid. Not pretty. This stuff is amazing! And I don't have that issue. It did take a few different tries with different liner brushes to find the one that would work best but once I did... I am sticking with this one indefinitely!!

              Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

              After seeing this gel liner praised by a beauty guru on YouTube, I had to get my hands on it. Only problem was, every jar (all three of them in the whole store) were dried out. Dried to the point of seeing the product shrinking and coming away from the jar itself. Dried to the point of me later sticking my finger into the jar and not pulling up any color. I asked an associate if the product was supposed to look this way, if it was dried out, etc. She proceeded to whip out a clean angled liner brush (different than the brush I indended to use, the Real Techniques fine liner brush, mind), dip it into the jar, and draw a line on her hand. "Nope," she proclaimed. "It will work just fine." Ha.

              I've had the product for a few months, and it's just as dry - if not more dry - than the day I bought it. I've tried heating and melting the product to reconstitue it. In a last ditch effort, I added water to it (which wouldn't mix in, what with it being so dang waxy and all). It's just... junk. Maybe the jars in my local Ulta were old, maybe they were part of a bad batch, but every time I go to my local store, every jar of this gel liner is dried up.

              It may be cheap, but it's not worth the effort and frustration to get it to work as intended. The one time I did manage to use it as my liner, it smudged, flaked (due to going on so clumpy) and lasted only a few hours. Even if it were as creamy as the jars I saw on YouTube and in pictures, that alone is not worth it.

              I use it everyday, with a brush I create a simple cat eye look. It's very easy to apply.
