This gel liner is a dream! I do not have a steady hand and have never been able to do a cat eye—until trying this product! Benefit has made it so super easy to get that perfect line and shape every time!
Unable to use
I was unable to get the sample product to work. It seemed as if the gel inside the sample had solidified because it wouldnt come to the top of the tube for almost 5 minutes and when it did it wasnt smooth, it was solid. I would love to try this sample.
First the pros: The staying power is great and the color pay off is fantastic. The cons however is it's a pain in the butt to get off. I had to scrub over and over again in order to get it off. I used makeup remover, cleansing water, oils, and it would barely come off. It began to irritate my eyes, due to all the scrubbing I had to do in order to remove it. I love the lasting power, hate the removing process. Also, I feel like I can't get a super precise line with this. It kind of skips when applying, because the product gets on the sides of the applicator and can mess up your line. I love the idea of eliminating the use of a separate brush and that it's so pigmented, but I wish it were more precise and easier to remove.
Worst Idea ever!
I absolutely hated this. I am very comfortable putting on makeup. This was a total nightmare to put on. 1. Its time consuming-If you had to much of the liner pushed up- you make a huge mess, it gets stuck in your lashes, and gets knocked of the "pen", to little and then you have to keeping stopping to push more up. It took me twice as long to apply this product. 2. It runs and runs... I felt like a raccoon all day. Will not be purchasing this product
Easiest Liner Ever!
I won this as part of a Birchbox giveaway and it's the easiest liner I've ever used! It's so different from anything I've ever tried before… whoever thought to put gel in a pencil casing was a genius. My one complaint is that it doesn't come off easily. I had to really scrub to get the product off my lids. I guess it will be good for my summer vacations though!
