    Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

    Best eyeliner I've tried hands down, and I've tried A LOT. It's super affordable but definitely beats out higher end brand eyeliners. Won't budge! I go swimming in this eyeliner and it doesn't smudge or run.

    Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

    I bought this product because it was highly rated on YT and here, but after a few uses (actually only after the first use), I could only give it an average rating. It was not fabulous for me, it was not anything awesome for me…it was decent at most. It came already a bit dry in the tub when I bought it, but that didn't affect its smoothness too much when I picked it up with my brush or put it on my lid. What DID disappoint me was that it flaked and smeared throughout the day. Even after a few hours, there was a bit of blackness on my lower lash line and under my eyes as well. Yes, this is in the summer and the humidity is ridiculous, but from the reviews I was expecting this to perform better. Before this I was using Prescriptives' gel liner, and that never smeared anywhere near this. I've used fluidline before and that had no problems either. I would've returned this but I hadn't found a product with as high of a rating and as decent of a price as this, so I'll continue using it and see if it ever improves. However, I don't hold my hopes too high. Maybe this would be fantastic for someone with dry lids or normal skin, but for oily lids/skin…I'd pay a bit more for something better, or even try a different kind of liner. I'm partial to gels, and even with lid primer this still smeared. I will be looking for something better.

      You have to work really fast with it. It will dry on you. The color is fantastic and you can't beat that it doesn't cost so much.

        Good gel liner. It's dark and easy to create a perfect wing with an angled brush. Creamy satin matte finish at a great price.

        I have tried many eyeliners, cheap, expensive, gel, pencil, and liquid; but this is by far the best eyeliner I've used ever. It stays on all day, doesn't smudge, and its extremely black. Love it!

          Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

          I use this gel eyeliner pretty much every day, I'm on my second pot. I use it with the little black and pink angled brush that was next to it in the Essence display, and it's really easy to apply. It is extremely pigmented and black, and it is waterproof. To give you an example of how good this wears, my typical workday starts at 7 am at the office and ends at 10 pm as a server at a restaurant, which means I get sweaty and hot running around and being by the kitchen. It lasts all day. I've even gone to an MMA practice, it stayed put through heavy exercise like that. I take it off with coconut oil and it comes off easily. Don't bother wasting your money on expensive gel eyeliner, this stuff can't be beat!

            Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

            This product was pretty good. It does last a long time, but it does wear off a bit. Its not waterproof and it does come off if you cry or sweat. Other then that, this product is really good. I would definitely recommend this to family/friends.

            Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

            I bought this after seeing an MUA whose liner was always perfect said that this was what she used. It's so easy to use, not too wet and not too dry. Lasts all day and really doesn't budge. I've even forget a few times and rubbed at my eye a little and it stayed put. Definitely recommend it!

            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! :(
