I purchased Charcoal, since I figured a dark grey with some shimmer would be more forgiving (and easier to wear during daytime) than a true black. I'm a big fan of my dark gunmetal grey eyeliners!
As you can see, the product comes in a glass jar and a brush is included. The brush is actually quite decent, and it's what I used to test the product with, although I'm sure a higher quality brush with a longer handle would make the product that much easier to apply.
You'll be able to see some of the shimmer below; I've swatched it heavily on the bottom, and blended it out some on the top.
So, how did it work for me? I found this eyeliner long lasting; it didn't budge after it set. Application wasn't a piece of cake, but it wasn't difficult, either. I think with some practice I could get used to this product, and I'm sure people who aren't as eyeliner-challenged as I am would be quite pleased with this product.
Here I am wearing the eyeliner on two separate days as part of two separate looks:
|With my first look...|
|And the second!|
|Another angle from the second look. Sorry for the stray hairs!|
Summary: I would recommend this product, and I'd definitely be open to trying more colors. That being said, I don't know that it's reached holy grail status; I'm still interested in trying other gel eyeliner formulas to see if I find one that's foolproof even for me! It seems easiest to create a thin wing with this product; maybe when I work up my nerve I'll be able to build up the line and create bolder eyeliner looks!
Have you guys tried this product? What do you think of different types of eyeliner: liquid, gel, pen, pencil, etc...?
