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.

While I like the idea of a gel eyeliner, I can't get behind this particular gel eyeliner. I like the definition I can get from the gel rather than a pencil, I don't like the applicator. the brush gets clumped as the gel builds up making it more difficult to create a thin line. If the applicator was made of foam rather than bristles, it would be better.

I'd pass on this gel eyeliner...

I've used liquid eyeliner before and this is very different to me. I'm not sure how different 'gel' is compared to 'liquid' but gel just does not work for me. It doesn't slide across the eyelid easily at all and found it have quite a bit of friction to it.

I really love this eyeliner!

It goes on pretty evenly without having to use much, and I have never had to reapply during the day because of it wearing off or smudging! the brush being attached the top prevents it from getting all gross like others similar to this product. It's easy to keep together, and bring with you everywhere without having to worry about it getting on all of your stuff in your bag. I have had it for a good amount of time and still have plenty left.

Where has this eyeliner been all my life?

Great liner!

This was an awesome liner! It went on great and didn't run like cheaper liners. I do however wish the brush was slightly thinner. Its easier to add on than it is to take away!

Loved this eyeliner! Easy to use, large sample, dark black color (not grayish black). Will be purchasing this product immediately.

Love Fades

I LOVED this liner when I first got it. It went on smooth, I could line my eyes without pulling my on lid like you're not suppose to. But within a week, it wasn't so wonderful. It dried out a bit. Really washing out the brush made it a bit better but still not back to perfect. You've to have a really steady hand and keep the brush pristine for this product to work well. I think I'll stick to my pencil or liquid liners.

LOVE!

I have never used gel eyeliner before and now I don't think I'll ever use anything else! This goes on great and lasts all day. I love the packaging!

I have trouble using liquid liner so gel is much better for me. I was able to get a perfect line and it stayed perfect. No smudging or bleeding. I am getting this in two additional colors.

As an avid liquid liner fan...

... this is not bad.
I usually don't like the gel and brush technique because I find it to be more complicated than necessary.
But I came to like this little eyeliner quite a bit.

Just as the other reviewers say, it stays put, which is a nice change from liquid liners. Also, the application is smooth (if you keep the cap on appropriately). I like the color, I didn't find it too shiny and the texture of the gel is nice.
All that being, the brush was a bit of an issue. I don't know about others, but the shape is a little off. It should be slightly more angled if we're to use it at a liner brush. Unless you know what you're doing like me and you've done your eyeliner with liquid/gels a MILLION times, it's probably confusing that there's no definite edge. I will also mention that I had to clean the brush every time otherwise the product would get clumpy from previous uses. Not necessarily a bad thing, just thought I would mention it.
Overall, it's a good product and I would probably buy it :)

easy to apply

The application brush is perfectly shaped making the liner easy to apply. It seems like this product will last me a long time compared to some other liners I own. I can easily do a pretty cat eye! My only complaint is the liner doesnt last on my lids all day long, the black fades by late afternoon.
