TOP QUESTIONS

How good is this eyeliner ? Does it smudge an is it easy to work with or does it dry quickly ?
Can someone give me some advice, is this product worth it? Like does it dry up in the pot after a few months and does it smudge when applied?
So I recently bought the Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner in Black because of it having such rave reviews. I actually didn't care for it much. I typically use the intense black waterproof liquid eyeliner from Stila and I looooove it since it really is a very intense black. My question is do the smudge pots perform the same way in terms of pigmentation and staying power?

Love love LOVE!!! I’d been wanting to try a gel liner for years and splurged on this one. I’ll never go back. It glides on beautifully. I use and angled eyeliner brush and set with the blackest eyeshadow I have. It lasts 48 hours (yes I fall asleep with makeup on at times lol) highly recommend this product!! stila Smudge Pot

I love inglot #77 liner thought this stills would be similar. It good if you like smudge look. I don’t know how reviews are mixed up it’s not pigmented at all. You have to constantly dip it in product to get anywhere. Definitely not buying. I like my liner intense black this is definitely not it. I changed brushes thinking it might be cuz of that but no product is not good as liner if you expecting rich in color

I really like this gel eye liner because it does a great job with staying on all day without my wings fading away. It is also water proof which is great for when I’m going out or for special occasions. It also doesn’t dry super fast so you can take more time with your application. This is my second time purchasing this and I would recommend it.

I have used this eyeliner for years even when Stila was still their own company before Easter Lauder purchased them. It has worked so well for me. It’s long lasting, doesn’t move, lasts forever and when you apply it you have that minute window before it’s dry. Love this stuff!

Not bad but both worth the hype that was around it. It’s ok but tends to dry up quickly. And not worth the price. I mean it’s not the worse out there but there is plenty of other brands that are you at better and perform better then this one and at a affordable price

My favorite pot eyeliner! So easy to use and stays on all day! I use it with a small angled brush and it looks amazing! So creamy and dries down matte. It lasts a long time so it’s a good price for the product. Make sure to keep the lid on tight or it will dry out

It glides on so smoothly and dries so matte I love it and it doesn’t budge wether I’m dancing at the bar or rocking out at a concert, I have tried many gel liners but have never liked any until now. I just love it!

Review for: Black
Considering I am typically a big fan of eyeliner markers/liquid eyeliner pens, I actually do like the gel smudge pot. It has great dark pigment and spreads easily. The only things I don’t like are that I like liquid markers because it’s easier to apply than the thin liquid eyeliner brushes and stays longer/dries faster. 1. With the smudge pot, I feel like I have less control because I have to use an eyeliner brush, but I started dipping an old dried out fenty flyliner into the stila smudge pot and using that as a “brush,” which has been a great solution! and 2. the smudge pot eyeliner does dry on your face, but I feel like it moves around a bit more than I would usually like. All in all, it’s an incredibly smooth and pigmented product and definitely great for those who like gel eyeliners, I’m just in the learning phases of getting to know how to use this product effectively as well, but I love the formula and concept itself!

This can be used as a gel liner or smudge it with a finger to be used as a shadow. I've only used this for liner and it was not good. It is very drying and when I would try to draw the line with a brush, it would drag. I constantly have to dip into this and found to better if I dampen the bristle to get cleaner lines but it's not going to be as black as I want it. And even with a primer and setting, it still transfers since I have hooded lids. Overall, I think it requires a lot of work and it did not work for me.

If you like smudge pot eyeliner this is definitely a good option for you however if you’re looking to do a cat eye, I would not suggest this unless you have a really study hand. If that’s not you then I would highly recommend you use a felt tip eyeliner
