Studio Gear

Cake Eyeliner

Tossed out my old gel liner.

I've been looking for a cake eyeliner for about a year now, but there are few brands that make them. I finally tried the studio gear cake, and after about three weeks of using it, I've already decided that I will never buy another gel liner. This has every. single. gel. liner. beat.

It looks like an eyeshadow pan, but add a drop of water, or mixing medium, or eye drops, or any liquid you like, and it turns into the smoothest, blackest eyeliner ever--blacker than UD perversion liquid liner, which I always thought was pretty black. I can use it with my tiniest brushes and with my biggest angled liner brush. I always have smooth and fluid control.

The wear is incredible, lasting all day without fading when I use just a drop of water, but when I use a drop of Pixi Eye Color Sealer it's pretty close to waterproof.

It's my liner must-have.

I'm so glad this review was featured. I didn't think anyone knew about Studio Gear. But I have to agree with Anna, it way better then gel liners! I use them on myself and in my pro kit! I usually just use Cinema Secrets moisture spray to wet the black one to use as liner. I also have the brown one and I use that for my eyebrows. I just use a clear brow gel to wet it. They both stay on all day! I prefer cake liners because they just have a really thin and smooth consistency while being very dark, while gel liners tend to be too goopy, if that makes sense. Great stuff!

My go-to liner for detail work.

I worked for Studio Gear *cough cough* a "while" ago. ;) This brand is seriously underated as everything I have used from them is excellent. I love this cake eyeliner. It works great as a smooth liner, especially when I'm doing fine detail work. Because it is water based, it doesn't drag on the skin, allowing me to make great swirls, arches and dots.
