Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

I was looking to try a new gel liner because I cant seem to get enough of them. This one was fairly inexpensive, but you get what you pay for. Its not bad to play around with, but its definitely something that needs to be layered with another product. The color isn't very bold and it took several layers to get a good deep black. Not a bad purchase for the price, but there are better ones out there.

Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

I bought an angled brush and adjust how thick i want the line. It is cheap and a good eyeliner. It doesnt blend, it dries quickly. It tends to dry up at the top of the pot even when lid is sealed tight.

    Comments about Essence Gel Eyeliner:

    I have used soooo many different eye liners, but this one is definitely one of my favorites. The color is rich and bold and gives and has a nice matte finish. My eyelids tend to gt oily throughout the day however, the eyeliner did not fade. I wore this in 95 degree humid weather and it did not smudge or run at all. It is a bit difficult to remove because its waterproof and that's expected. Any eye makeup remover should do the trick.

            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!
