I just got mine from ulta not too long ago and it upsets me that they don’t come in sealed packaging bc I went to use it and it’s just suuuper dry 🙁 like it’s been open for a long time….seriously thinking of returning it

Vice&Vanity says:

I’m obsessed with it! Its the only gel liner I use and will ever need.

Kitty Miller says:

Does it work on the waterline?

Lizbeth H says:

I bought it in a silver …they didn’t have black but I gotta buy it tho

Nancy Figs says:

Just made my Ulta order of this and the Real Techniques brush! I can’t wait to try them out!

Priscilla Nieto says:

I love your reviews so much. It’s so refreshing to see a beauty guru give unbiased input on different products. Especially if something didn’t work for you you don’t hate rant on it, you always seem to give constructive criticism and that’s something I deeply appreciate. You don’t see that very often in the beauty world!

itsjustjaylu says:

There’s a grey, purple in the US at Ulta that I’ve seen.

Nancy Kash says:

Tried it on your recommendation and I LOVE it! I had to order on because my ulta is always sold out if it. Thanks for the review and recommendation!

MissVersaStyles says:

I am deff. buying!!

mdteders says:

Since recently this gel eyeliner is no longer part of the Essence range in The Netherlands (I know, total mystery to us too), so If you can still get it ‘over there’; stock up!

Kat luvs Babes in Toyland says:

Just bought this Em and I do love it., I can’t believe the quality of this gel liner for a mere 4 bucks. Go Essence!!! 

asiandrmr says:

Arelyb1 says:

Thanks so much!! I just bought the real techniques eye brushes yesterday, so now going to make a quick trip back to ulta for that eyeliner 🙂

Hildy van Hefeweizen says:

This stuff has some SERIOUS staying power but even though it is waterproof, it washes off easily with just face wash and water…no special makeup remover needed.

tracy s says:

ulta sells the dark brown and gray shade too
