Honest reviews


NYX gel liner

A good gel liner that smudges. And sets if you don’t want to smudge it. This isn’t my favorite gel liner in the world but it’s good and I’d buy it again for the smudgey factor.

Best gel liner, HANDS DOWN!!!

This is my new favorite gel liner. I am usually a felt-tip liquid liner type of gal, but liquid doesn’t always last through those hot summer days. Plus, I saw the price of this and I thought I would take a swing at it. I have to say I am in love. I have tried the Benefit gel liner and the Mac gel liner.. and this is comparable!! Once this dries and you set it with black shadow this stuff doesn’t move!! I have gone swimming with this and it stayed in place. If you are having trouble with the staying power, I suggest using a eyeshadow primer then going in with the liner. After that you set it with any kind of black eye shadow and it STAYS!! For the price, this is amazing stuff. I have always loved and will always love NYX!!

Ok, so it is just as good as my $25.00 Napoleon gel eyeliner I think…………

This is my second day using it. It has staying power thus far. I purchased it on a whim based on other reviews. I’m not dissatisfied so far. One thing though; my brush is hard to clean now. Any suggestions as to how to get it off of my brush bristles properly? With the other gel product I was using, it came off the bristles just fine. With this product, no beuno! Helllppppppppppppp! I think I like it, but this was surprising to me.

I’m so impressed with this gel liner! It’s the first one I’ve found that’s reasonably priced, controllable, doesn’t dry out in the jar, stays put, and lasts.I use it with a skinny little bent handled eyeliner brush and, after a bit of practice, I’m rocking a cat eye. On less flamboyant days, I can draw a thin line close to my lash line, top and bottom, for a no-makeup look. I can also thicken the center, draw bottom lashes, or any combination of the above. Great stuff!Versatile, good quality, and cheap–what’s not to love?

Very smooth

I like this eye liner gel, its so smooth, glides on so easily an lasts all day long, Just wish it was more gel, or maybe a bigger jar for the price. But I will definitely buy again.

Goes on heavy, stays all day

I have had people tell me my eyes look bigger and brighter since wearing this. It goes on pretty heavy, so you may need to blend (I do). One piece if advice is to wash the eyeliner brush off as soon as you are done because it dries up and stiffens the brush, and if you didn’t clean the brush ahead of time, you are stuck using a stiff, hard brush in the morning. I love it, though!

Very versatile great true black liner

A great true black liner !it can be applied to be a very sharp cat eye or smudged out with a brush or Q tip for a dramatic smokey eye. works great as a base for darker more dramatic looks. when i run out i’ll be back to buy more. I can’t live without a good liner and i think i found a new favorite!Very versatile and it staying a true black is great.When products have multiple shades of black i get so mad.

5 star product

Perfect for all types and winged eyes. Last all day, no smudge caked up or creasing of product. I wish i could show u pic of this product. Overall i love NYX gel liner!

Works just like Benefit gel liner

I love this so much! It took me years to find another alternative after I could no longer afford the Benefit gel liner. I purchased many of the cheaper ones that were often recommended to me to see if I was happy, but none made me as happy as this one. This gel liner costs just like the Maybelline gel liners(around $7-$9 depending on store and area), yet they have the same quality as the Benefit gel liner, which costs about $20. I was hoping I would not be disappointed and that I’d finally found a good replacement, and I did. It is definitely worth every dollar. I will be stocking up on these.
