CAILYN Cosmetics Gel Eyeliner

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.

Great Longwearing Eyeliner

This is a great eyeliner that goes on smoothly. It's long wearing and doesn't smudge.
Those negative reviews about it drying out quickly are wrong. It's because they aren't cleaning the brush and it's drying on the brush. Clean it with some eye makeup remover dabbed on a tissue and it works again.

Not bad for a gel liner

This is the only gel liner i have tried and found it very easy to apply. I think the only thing not impressing me was i got a gray color in my box and do not like that color on my eyes at all. I would like to try it in black.

Most perfect eyeliner!

I LOVE this eyeliner!!!!!! The application itself is so incredibly easy and the brush creates such a smooth line. After using this eyeliner, I will not go back to regular pencil liner.

Dry

I tried the product when I got it in my box and it went on too dry and the brush was too stiff.

Gel Eyeliner

I had never used a gel eyeliner and, after receiving the sample in my Birchbox, I purchased another Cailyn Gel Eyeliner not long after trying it. It is easy to put on and lasts all day long. I love this eyeliner!

Long wear

Love this eyeliner! Lasts all day and doesn't fade or smear. The only flaw would be when you have liner on te brush, the brush gets stiff. I have to clean the brush every few days.

Love, love, love!

I have been looking for an eyeliner like this for years. Asthma (and my medicines) make me shaky, so I'm no good with liquid liners. These gel liners offer the staying power of a liquid liner and the ease of a pencil. Not quite as easy as a pencil, but the gel has staying power!

Was not sure but so great.

I was not sure about this eyeliner when I got it in my birchbox. I was amazed but how easy it was to put on and how well it stayed on without smearing all over. It is a new fav.

I wasn't a huge fan

I got two good uses out of this, but it dried up very quickly. The packaging is cute and the concept is nice, but it just didn't work very well for me. The brush applicator became stiff and hurt my eyelids when I tried to put it on. I also had a hard time controlling the thickness of the line when applying.

Turns into a useless dry cake after 1 month

This eyeliner was decent when I first got it, but too dry and cakey to go on in one smooth line. I had to make the line bit by bit and then go over it again to get it to look smooth.

But after a month it dried up, cracked and I can't use it anymore. Like other reviews mention, you have to really scrape at it with the brush to get any pigment, and the brush is too stiff and scratches delicate eyelids painfully.

I'm going to go back to my regular liquid liner- Almay works just fine for me. Sometimes the cheapy CVS brands are better than fancy stuff.
