Essence Gel Liner in Miami's Ink



I know this review has probably been overdone, but I just had to share this with you! At the end of May I picked up two Essence Gel Eyeliners from Target. I didn't think much of them, because hey, when am I really going to wear silver and purple eyeliner?
But a few days ago I was playing around with my make-up and I gave the silver, or "Miami's Ink" a go. I was blown away!



To begin with the mixture was more like a liquid eyeliner in a pot that you can just dip your brush in rather than a bottle. It was so "wet" and easy to get on the brush. I was pleasantly surprised!



Swatched on my arm. 
Wow, the colour! Look how intense that is, it's amazing! It's more of a metal look rather than silver, which I actually like more. It's more classy, I think! It goes on very easily and is much easier to control than liquid eyeliner. A little goes a long way, my favourite, so it's so far a winner!




It went on amazingly easy on my eyes, and although I somehow managed to mess up the wing (it's a common problem with me. I draw the wing with my eyes opened, and it never looks right when I close them again!) it's very easy! Even though my photo here may not do it justice, the colour is very pigmented and is a beautiful, unique substitution for black eyeliner. 


See, I told you the wing looks fine when I open my eyes! I wore this a few days and it has excellent staying power, and doesn't transfer to the top of my eyelids, which is a plus!



My whole face. 
See, my eyeliner looks great! You may not be able to see if from far away, but it's not as intense as black, which can sometimes be over-dominating if you're wearing a heavy mascara and eyeliner on the bottom lashline like I do.

All in all I'm very pleased with this product! At only $5.95 it is an absolute steal! Easy to apply, great colour, great consistency and wonderful staying power, I will buy this again and again!

Have you tried any Essence products before? If so, what did you think?

  3. Essence has the cutest packaging! But I've only tried their lip liners and nails polishes (which I'm in love with), going to give these gel liners a go :D What other colours are there available?

    1. I've never tried anything else from them before aside from nail polishes (which are so cute!)
      I know there is silver, purple (the two I actually own) black and brown I think, but I'm sure there would be more! :)

  4. I personally don't really like grey eyeliners, they don't suit me.
    I've got the black version of this one and I love it!
    It's my fav eyeliner.
    I also love the mani on your nails ;)
