  • "Can't even remember how long I've had the same pot of gel liner for. I have the black one, and I love it. It has dried up a little bc I've had it for so long, but it is definitely still workable." in 3728 reviews
  • "I only wear this on my waterline and it's great. It doesn't smudge or disappear at all during the day. I like the brush that comes with it too. Only problem is that it's a little difficult to remove at night (gets on my contacts) but I really like this instead of pencil liners that never seem to work for me" in 417 reviews
  • "I love this gel eyeliner sooo much! I use it almost everyday in the fall. It's so versatile and you can really darken it up or keep it pretty neutral. I where the eggplant color and it works great, even lasts super long...I usually apply it to my whole lid by smudging it out, orso etimes I'll do a cat eye and it looks amazin...!!! DEFINETLY recommend." in 380 reviews
  • "i used this for a reallllly long time and its a good liner, its super long lasting the only problem i have is that if you dont constantly clean the brush it does get very hard and my liner did actually dry out very quickly but a nice trick for it is to put the little jar in the microwave for about 3 seconds and it should go back to its original texture." in 5 reviews
  • "i hate the brush its so bulky i prefer a thiner liner brush or an angled one ,now the gel liner works very well super pigmented but not as pigmented as ingot eyeliner which is my holllyygrailll but this works very well not as smith as i would like it to be but alwell" in 4 reviews

so 7th grade through 11th grade this was a staple in my makeup collection; which consisted of this, one crappy brush and urban decay glitter liner. all i listened to was falling in reverse and my part was basically a comb over. it was a scene phase and a time to remember. this eyeliner lasted me through concerts, internet boyfriends, the rise and demise of jesse slaughter, and through hot topics extreme transformation from goth to pop. this eyeliner was my ride or die, and paired with an angled brush it was dreamy. but now that i've grown up and upgraded from scene to alternative-adult-who-spends-hundreds-of-dollars-on-marilyn-manson-concerts this eyeliner just isn't for me anymore. i've been opened to the wonderful world of liquid liner. the gel is just a little to dry and hard to apply. but for nostalgia purposes i will give it a 7/10

I am more of a liquid liner fan but wanted to try this gel liner out because I have heard nothing but good things around this product and wanted to see for myself if the hype was true and so far so good I am loving the product the formula goes on smoothly and has amazing pigamention so you will get intense color pay off it is smudgeproof and waterproof its stays in place once to put it on would recommend if you are wanting to try a gel liner.

I have tried just about anything imaginable when it came to eyeliner. I just never could get it to work the way I wanted unless it was a powder, but I couldn't get the powder dark enough for a good wing. I am not the best at doing makeup, but this product is the best for me! I can do just about anything what I want with ease! It's super easy to use and seems to stay on your face. Not only is it a good liner, but you don't have to use much and it lasts forever until you have to buy more!
AND you can use as much or as little as you want and it's extremely light! I used to hate how normal eyeliner feels thick and you could definitely tell it was there, but you don't have that with this one! A friend recommended it and I absolutely LOVE it!!!

5/5 would def recommend to anyone!

Review for: Brown more...
I love this liner. I’ve used it on days where I have a full face of makeup on. I’ve been trusting this liner to not smudge/budge. However, today, I wore it on my first day to work, and it smudged :(. I guess I can’t use it on warm/very humid areas. And also maybe, I should’ve powdered my lids before applying this. That’s the only reason why I gave it 4 stars, cuz it failed me on the day I thought I could count on it. LOL i sounded so dramatic. Anyways, I still recommend it- just powder/set your lids. PS- I don’t have oily lids

Review for: Blackest Black more...
I've been using this product for several months now and am pleasantly surprised. I've never used a gel liner that came in a pot before, and was afraid it would be too difficult and bothersome to apply but this stuff goes on super smoothly. I was always a liquid eyeliner girl but decided to give this a shot because I was sick of dealing with the occasional flaking you'd get from certain liquid liners. 

In the summer I have real bad allergies and the liquid liners I noticed really bothered my eyes even more. Using this gel I don't get that same dry itch I'd get from other liners. Love it. The only issue is that it does smudge just a little if you have a bad habit of touching your face. That's mostly my own doing, but I still love it regardless.

You guys! I can't say enough about this product. i've never, ever ever, in my life been able to do a winged liner. I've tried liquid eye liners, I've tried the felt tip liners  that were extra pointy, I've tried it with eyeliner pencils, I've even tried it with black eyeshadows and tiny little makeup brushes and I eventually came to the conclusion that it's just me. I just totally suck at it. And then I came across this little gem and I decided to try the product. I don't know what it is about it but I CAN DO A WINGED EYELINER! For the first time in my life, because of this foolproof gel eyeliner (and the lttle brush that comes with it). Its super super pigmented. I'm not sure what it is about this liner that makes it so much easier, but I can finally do it! After 46 1/2 years. Don't know why, but it's always been the hardest thing for me to do. I'll never go without this product in my makeup bag again. it's now an absolute must for me. Love it!

Review for: Blackest Black more...
This is *really good* affordable gel liner. I recently purchased this at Ulta as I’d read positive reviews about it and so far I’m super impressed. It goes on smoothly, has good pigmentation and wears for a long time without smudging. I have to agree with others who recommend using a different brush than the one that came in the package. It’s okay but you’ll get a much better line with a higher quality angled brush. I really love that this comes in a glass container!

I have blackest v
Black and I liked this product, but did not do well with it. I have hooded eyes and it was difficult for me to do a look with this product as an amateur. The formulation is creamy, but I much prefer a gel pen style applicator, but this is personal and not a fault of this product. This is a good product if you are experienced with using this sort of style product. I would not reccomend for someone just starting.

I absolutely love this gel eyeliner. I bought this eyeliner at a walgreens drug store over a year ago and still have plenty left. The liner brush was perfect and easy to use. This is definitely your moneys worth and isn't even expensive. I would recommend to anyone. As long as I have worn this liner, I have not had any smudging, it stays on all day, goes on super smooth and easy, and is not difficult to wash off.

If you’re on a budget, this liner is a great alternative to some of the best gel liners on the market. It lasts all day long, takes forever to dry out, and is incredibly black without being streaky or patchy upon applying it. I definitely don’t reach for it as much as my higher end favorites anymore, but when I only had 30 bucks or so to spend on makeup, this was always one of the first things I would pick up.
