Long-lasting gel liners are kinda like unicorns, a beautiful notion of mythic proportions…that doesn’t really exist. That is, until we met this heroic eyeliner from CAILYN Cosmetics. The inky gel goes on smoothly like a traditional liquid liner and leaves behind a line of rich color like a high-impact eye pencil. It even comes with a built-in brush so you can get a bold eye even while on the go.
This really is a long lasting gel but I prefer the look of liquid. If I liked gel, I'd buy it.4
I got this eyeliner in Black (what a surprise...) in my Birchbox. Last month I received the same eyeliner in purple from another sample box, so I can give my thoughts on both.
For a gel liner this is okay. The brush is gimmicky and I don't feel that I get as much control using it than with a longer angled eyeliner brush. While the brush from the Black eyeliner was soft, the brush from the purple was stiff and scratchy.
Overall the gel is easy to work with, but I have found it tends to smudge throughout the day and the color fades. I've tried other gel eyeliners and did not have smudging of fading problems with them, so I can't give my top recommendations to the Cailyn gel liner. It's merely okay.
This eye liner is the best I have tried. And I have tried my fair share of eye liners :-) It comes in a cute little container (although if you're trying to save on space, it does take up quite a bit of space), the brush makes it easy to apply, it goes on smoothly, and it stays where you put it. I do use makeup remover to remove it and it comes right off, if you don't have makeup remover I don't think removing it would be an easy task.5
I was pretty excited when I got this sample in my August Box because it is nearly full-sized. I typically wear a liquid/pen style eyeliner every day, but this gel is making me want to switch! The black color is super rich and stays on all day, LOVE.5
overall a good gel eyeliner, applies easily and lasts all day.4
I will never go back to pencil eyeliners. This is perfectly smoky every time and goes on in a nice thick smudge so there's no chance for mistakes. Perfect.5
I got a full size grey liner in my ipsy bag in June, and I love it! I love that the product includes a brush making it nice for touch ups and travel. It wears and applies really well. So glad BB is carrying this now!!5
This product is so easy to apply. When I got it in my Birchbox I was worried I would fudge it up when putting it on. That definitely was not the case. This was a great sample too, it was huge. I'm not sure if I would go out and purchase this though. It's one of those samples where it's like "awesome, I got this and I like it, but I like other stuff better".5
I wasn't expecting much from this product because eye liner always seems to sort of...well...disappoint me. There is NO such thing as waterproof eyeliner. Including this. I will however say that this is the closest thing I've ever come to. Not to mention that it makes you feel like a pro makeup artist when you're putting it on. It's almost impossible to make this product look bad when applying it. Seriously. I've been half asleep at 6 AM getting ready for work, not paying much attention and it still looked fantastic. Quality product.3
I have never tried fell eyeliner before so I was unsure if I would like it or not and this product has won me over! I don't think I can go back to using a pencil liner ever again.5
