Best Waterproof Gel Liner for the Price but Maybe Too Waterproof
I had this eyeliner in 01 Midnight in Paris, which is a glossy, highly opaque black color. The product is packaged in a standard, no-fuss glass jar without a brush and is priced at US$4, the second cheapest gel liner I've seen thus far (beaten by e.l.f. Cream Eyeliner at $3 which does include a brush).
However, e.l.f.'s is water-resistant whereas essence's is truly waterproof. The formula in the jar is soft and easy to dip a brush in and apply, and just a little goes a very long way so this is best to apply conservatively. Brush it around on the hand quickly to warm it up and soften it even more, and it will glide over the lids.
Once it sets, it will not budge when immersed in any degree of water alone. Even sweat and oily lids didn't break it down on me! It's so stubborn, in fact, that it can be difficult to remove even with an oil-based makeup remover. So while it applies excellently and looks great when worn, it is a little fussy to clean up later.
I would save this for long days or nights or occasions where waterproofing may be needed because this really sticks, but I would not use this as an everyday eyeliner simply because it will be hard on your lids to clean it up, and you really don't want to be pulling, tugging, or putting too much pressure on your eyes every single night.
Really good product!
I just came across this product at the drugstore in Bangkok. At first I gotta admit that i didnt expect anything when i bought cos I can feel that "Its so cheap" Its just 180 baht ( nearly 6 USD).When i came back home and tried to line my eyes with this gel liner,i could feel that its texture is so smooth and the color is really black which is what i want (I bought the color named Midnight in Paris ).Moreover, it doesnt smudge on my very oily eyelids.So i really love this product
Hard to take off, but amazing!
This is super great! It lasts all day, no matter your skin type (I have SUPER oily lids and really watery eyes). It's waterproof, as long as you don't rub your eyes. Even if you do, it'll only smudge some off. This is soooo pigmented. I only need to tap my brush in twice to do my top lashline. My bottom lashline only needs on quick bounce in the pot, and I'm ready to apply! One downside is that it's super hard to remove! I've rubbed and scrubbed and it's really hard to get off :/ I suggest olive oil instead of makeup remover, if you really want to thoroughly remove it. That's why I only gave it a 4.5 star review.
The black one is the best on the waterline!
A great product for the little price, I use it on the waterline 'cause it's the only thing that really stays put! And when they say it's waterproof, it really is: in fact everytime I get the wrong shape or go too dramatic and have to take it all off, it's a big mess, lol! It's great to wear at concerts, you can dance and sweat and it'll never come off the lid.
I LOVE the black one, it's really pigmented and need just a tiny amount for extra blackness, but I purchased the other three colours as well. The only note is that I wish they were more vibrant, especially the purple and green ones which are a bit darker than expected and don't look as pigmented on the waterline. Anyway they're really nice on the lid, they go on very smoothly and stay really buttery on the jar.
Definitely better than expected, it was a really nice surprise.
I believe this brand only hit the Canadian market not long ago. This gel liner by far has been the longest lasting, most pigmented, and smoothest formula I have ever come across; great for every occasion whether it be everyday wear or a night out. I bought this in 01 Midnight in Paris (an opaque, semi-matte finish jet black) and 02 London Baby (a cool brown/taupe with micro shimmer) at my local Shoppers Drug Mart for $3.99 each. Essence claims that this gel eyeliner is waterproof and that is 100% true; once this dries on your skin, it's going to stay there without a budge. No smudging, smearing, or flaking occurs throughout the day either.
i really loooove this gel liner. it is amazing. when i bought it i did not expected that much, really!
the texture is good.
with the right brush it is so easy to apply.
and this liner lasts like forever. i've been to clubs and concerts wearing this and at the end of the night it still looked flawless, no blur.
totally recomandable. one of my everyday favourites.
HG Eyeliner <3
Found it at Shoppers Drug Mart! And when I saw it I was like "This is Shae's fave. Must buy it now!"
Price: $4.47 CAD
Pkg: screw-on lid
Colour: (Midnight in Paris) jet black
Texture: super creamy
I was surprised cuz the pigmentation is as good as any (good) liquid liner. The gel is super smooth and buttery, unlike other gel liners out there. One tiny dab is enough for the entire upper lashline and tightline
It's super black that it makes even my darkest brown eye look brown. Glides on smoothly and sets real quick. Stays on forever on my oily lids. And there's almost no smudging by the end of the day
My new HG eyeliner!!!
No need to try another
this is only my second gel eyeliner and it is great! It is so easy to use for somone who is still new at this. Its only 3.49 at my ulta and has made me try other essence products
