Overall

Nothing super special but still lovely. I got these during a buy 2 get 2 free sale at Ulta but I don’t think they are really worth the $8 each you would normally pay. The colors are beautiful, they apply easily, and blend really well. The only real complaint I have is that they don’t last the best and sometimes I find that they have smudged in the heat.

Pigmentation

Highly pigmented with a metallic sheen. They all seem to have the same level of pigmentation, but the gold and silver shades are way more metallic than the other shades.

Texture

Exactly what you would expect from a gel liner.  Goes on thickly and blends easily.

Longevity

In this aspect these liners left me going “meh.” They aren’t very long lasting but it really depends on how you use them. Forget about these in the waterline, they’ll be done in 5 minutes or less but as the base for a Smokey eye or along the lower lash line they last fairly well. I’ve noticed a HUGE bump in their longevity when I set them with a matching eye shadow.

Application

Applies smoothly, and easily without much pressure. You can build the coverage pretty easily by doing another swipe or two of these. These blend out easily, and generally find myself applying then blending out before I apply my eye shadow.

Packaging

Uh…It’s an eyeliner pencil. Nothing special here. Has a little clear cap and the exterior of the pencil is similar to the color within (but not an exact match by any means.)
