Essence Gel Eyeliner Review

Hi guys, how are you all…!!

Today I am here with review of Essence Gel Eyeliner.

Essence cosmetics has been my latest buy. I have tried many other products from essence which are really awesome. They have quality and affordability. But I didn’t really liked this eyeliner. This is the only product from essence which I disliked. Do read complete details to know more about it.

My other reviews on essence cosmetics were- essence eyshadow , essence lipgloss and essence blush.  Don’t forget to check out that too.

Now let’s proceed to my current review.

Product Description:

As per the product claims, it is a high precision gel type liner and it is waterproof.

There are many different shades to choose from. The one I have is 05 Miami’s ink which has greyish color.

It is suitable for only those who are trained in applying eyeliners else it’s a complete waste just like for me.

Directions of Usage:

To apply this you need a eyeliner brush. Dip the brush in eyeliner pot, take out required amount of liner and apply directly in your upper lids.

If you need thick lines you will have to repeat the procedure. Here comes the main problem that by the time you are ready to give second stroke, first line dries off and then it gets difficult to match with it.

If you are a trained eye liner specialist, then you can do it quickly and get it done easily else its really difficult to get good shape.

Shelf Life:

3 years from the date of manufacturing.

Price and quantity:

Price is Rs.349/- for net weight 3ml.


Essence Gel Eyeliner comes in a very small and cute packaging which got me attracted to it. It comes in a small transparent glass pot with all the details printed on a sticker and attached to it.

Pot is secured by a cap, which is quite very sturdy and shuts in so tightly that there is no chances of any leakage.

Since it is very small, it can easily be carried anywhere and everywhere. You just need to carry a brush with it always.

I really don’t know how to describe its texture, because I myself is confused with it. Sometimes I find it creamy and the other day I find it dry. It actually dries off so quickly that if temperature is low, it will dry inside the pot making it waste for future use. To use it further, you will have to melt it.

I am quite impressed with its staying power. It stays for around good 10 hours.

Color is greyish and gives matte finish if applied successfully.


The key ingredients of Essence Gel Eyeliner are not mentioned in the pack.

My Experience of Essence Gel Eyeliner

Unlike other essence products, I am not very impressed with this product. If you have read my earlier review on colossal liner , you would be knowing that I am not a trained eyeliner specialist. In fact I am very poor at it. So I generally opt for pen liner only, but since its packaging was quite attractive and I was impressed with its earlier products, I thought of trying it out.

I have had very bad experience with it. Till the time I try to apply the eyeliner it gets dried off in brush itself. Once I got it applied by my friend who is really quick. That day I really liked it, because it gave nice matte look and stayed for around 10 long hours.

Now I haven’t even used it for like 5-6 times, but it had dried inside the pot which is like waste for me.

So if are not very quick in applying eyeliner, don’t choose this vary product.
