I think the search for my holy grail eyeliner is going to last for a lifetime! This creme gel liner definitely wasn’t the one for me.
This is an easy-to-use twist-up eyeliner tube. The eyeliner itself is so smooth and lightweight that it’s really easy for the product to break off entirely while you’re pushing up the product. It happened twice to me with one eyeliner, which is really annoying!
I picked up Brouhaha and Show Me, which are two different shades of brown. I liked the pigment, they were relatively true to their color equivalency (ie: Show Me was lighter than Brouhaha, and both actually showed up with brown coloration, not black).
Application is AWESOME with these. Gel-cream eyeliners go on so smoothly! It’s really easy to get a thick line with these without having to go over it, again and again. I liked the look I was able to get with this.
However… these types of eyeliners are also notorious for transfer. I don’t think they ever truly dry. And this eyeliner is no exception. Every time I checked the mirror, there was a smudge on my upper lid. The irony of this is that the eyeliner is relatively difficult to get off with water and cleanser!
As far as irritants go, this isn’t too bad — I didn’t experience any stinging, redness, or fall out material into my eye. Still, overall, I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone, especially not for the price point of $14, unless they had a foolproof way of preventing pigment transfer. ~A
