A waterproof, long-lasting gel eyeliner with rich black pigments. This high-pigment gel eyeliner is formulated for optimal playtime and intense color payoff. The gel's smooth-gliding formula is workable while wet, but won't smudge, transfer, or run once dry even after swimming. It includes triple black iron oxide, a super intense black pigment that is deeper, stronger, and purer than traditional black pigments. This product is made in Italy.

  • "Amazing gel eyeliner ever!! I'm not a big fan of brands of make up especially for eyeliner but I do make sure that any product I use on my face is safe and looks good and not cheap. And this is my top gel eyeliner!! Doesn't smear and stays on. " in 24 reviews
  • "I absolutely love that this product is waterproof as well as stays on for a long time. It is amazing when you are at work and going out afterwards because you do not have to do much of a touch up. " in 14 reviews
  • "I love how you have more control over this product with a liner brush. It goes on very smoothly, and doesn't smudge easily. " in 6 reviews
  • "This stuff is perfect for tight-lining and lining the waterline. I really enjoy how intensely black it is. When I tight-line with it, I never get any transfer to the lower waterline if I let it dry properly. It's a good price for what you're getting in my opinion. The only thing I don't like this liner for is the upper and lower lash line because it has a tendency to smudge on me as the day goes on." in 4 reviews

I'VE WORN THESE WATERPROOF EYELINERS WHILE SNORKELING AND THEY DIDN'T BUDGE!!! Now that is some serious staying power! They came off easily with makeup remover at the end of the day. I own four colors.

This is one of the best makeup products out. It works great and does what it is supposed to. This is a great product for anyone that can afford it as it is a little on the pricey side. I will continue to purchase it and keep it in my makeup kit

 Wearing a black liner needs to be like cement for me, I work at Starbucks so when I’m  making drinks,  The steam hits my face. When I wore this for the first time, it melted! Lol

I love how deep the color is and the payoff is super concentrated. However there is almost zero staying power. It is easy to work with and priced great though so 3 stars.

I got this on sale because I wanted to finally try out gel eyeliner, after a bit of trial and error I found the perfect brush to apply it. It glides on smoothly and stays all day once it's dry which is instantly. It's a very dark black just the way I like it.

I bought this waterproof gel eyeliner on sale at Sephora.
I like using it. And I love the ️color.
The packaging is gorgeous.
The only problem I had with this is it dried out really quickly so.

I have heard really good reviews about this this product. I was wondering if any one here likes it and if you recommend it. I would really like to try it out. And if anyone has bad reviews it would be nice to know as well. TIA
