Ranked #1 out of 776 in Eye Liner

This oil-free formula can hold highly concentrated pigments in a clear gel base, so color is more intense and lines resist wear for 24 hours. It's smudge-proof and water-proof. It will give you the most intense line for lasting drama!

My sister received this product (and the brown colour) for free when they first came out forever ago, and since she doesn't use this product passed them on to me. Firstly, I've had these gel liners forever and they're STILL consistent. It doesn't dry up in the pot over time and has remained creamy. It still goes on like a dream. For the price, it's definitely worth it because a little goes a long way (for me). They also last years, so you definitely get the bang for your buck. As for the quality, I have oily eyelids and it tends to slip/smudge, so I would recommend using a lid primer to keep them in place. I'm not too crazy about the wands that come with the pot, but they aren't the worse things I've ever used. I use my own angle brush, but I would have no issues with using the brush it comes with. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants a good drugstore product that is reasonably priced and great quality.

I got this product a few months ago and I've hit pan! The texture is pleasing. It glides on the eye without being runny. The product lasts a long time and is quite good quality for the money you pay.
I'm not usually a fan of eyeliners in pots (I'm an adept of felt tip liners) but this one was precise enough and the colour pay off was far better than more high-end felt tips.
I would suggest you buy a separate eyeliner brush as the one they give you is pretty bad quality. You can work with it, but it's not worth the hassle.
To make this short, this product is opaque, easy to use and worth the price (around 9-10$ in Canada)

I like the idea of this, but I really didn't like the formula. I find gel liners a pain to apply and the staying power isn't the best either. I like Maybelline products because of the price and sometimes you can find a good quality product of out of the bunch. I use other products from this brand, but for some reason I can't get into the gel eyeliner.

I love this gel liner!! A little goes a long way, I've had it for months now and use it almost daily I've barely got into the pot!! I noticed it had dried up after a couple of weeks. I spreaywd mist fix plus by makeup forever in it and its like new, almost better then new! Soo smooth and creamy! It has amazing hold, last all day long without smudging! Perfect gel liner for professional use as well, I keep one in my kit! I do not use the brush it came with it, I didn't like it at all! Buy yourself a good little brush to get nice fine lines!!

This product is pricey and it looks like it's tiny and wouldn't last very long, but honestly the price is pretty much this products biggest downfall. You only need the smallest amount to cover a full eyelid and the brush, while handy if you don't own many cosmetic tools of you own can be a nice bonus addition, it doesn't apply as wel as one would hope. The fibers on mine split a tiny bit and I wasn't able to get a nice thin line.

First of all, throw away that brush it comes with... and buy yourself a real eyeliner brush to effectively use this product!
Ive been using this for years and i absolutely LOVE IT! it stays on for a solid 8 hours, I find it helpful when u use mascara on the lower lashes, it helps retain the product better (no panda smudge).
I use this product on my upper and lower water line only ( I use liquid for eyelids), and this is a very easy and creamy product, goes on easily.
highly recommend!

This is a very good gel eye liner from a drug store brand. It comes with a brush but I would recommend using an angled brush to really get precise lines around the curve of your eyes, and to create wings. Reasonably priced and long lasting. The colour is very rich and applies smooth.

This gel eyeliner is amazing. It is far better than most of the higher end I have tried in every way. It is super black, opaque, lasts all night on the lid, lasts for a very long time on the water line, and it is creamy and even. Unfortunately the brush that comes with it is complete garbage but that is easily fixed with any other liner brush or a pencil dipped in the pot. I highly recommend this!

One of the BLACKEST gel liners, glides on and stays put! Only down side is if you by chance forget to screw the cover on tight it will fry out, and fast!

I LOVE this eyeliner! I know you should switch out eyeliners every so often, but this has lasted so long without drying up that I honestly see no point in replacing it yet! It glides on so smoothly, has rich pigmentation, is long lasting, and smudge proof! Even the eyeliner brush it comes with is great! This is my go to eyeliner for wings. The gel is so easy to control so it really is perfect for a cat eye! All around fantastic product, especially for the drugstore! AND it's affordable!
