July 21, 2011

Want the longevity of a gel eyeliner but the ease of a pencil? Then check out Taiwanese-based Jealousness Waterproof Gel Eyeliner, which has already stirred up quite some buzz in Asia!

With a cute pink and gold packaging, the Waterproof Gel Eyeliner boasts a formula that is both waterproof and smudgeproof. It measures roughly 12.5cm long, which is a little shorter than MAC eyeliners.

There are 8 colors to choose from, including your regular black and brown in both cream and shimmer finishes, along with white, purple, silver and navy.

I was sent the Diamond Heart and Electric Eye Gift Box Set to try out, which contains a sharpener and 3 colors:

BKS Diamond Black, an intense black with tiny specks of gold.
BK Smoked Black, a charcoal with tiny shimmer.
BNS Sparkling Brown, a chocolate brown with tiny specks of gold.

The colors are all versatile and will work on any eye color. I like using BKS and BK along the upper lashline, while BNS is perfect on the lower lid for a bit of definition without being harsh. They are also nicely pigmented, with my only gripe being that the glitter did not show up as much I wanted it to.

Thanks to its gel core, the pencil has an uber soft texture. It applies smoothly without scratching my eye and is easy to use, even for beginners.

The pencils are also truly waterproof. Once the color sets, it will not budge even if you run water over it. On my dry skin, it also manages to stay on all day until I remove it with an oil-based remover. But on a friend who has oilier skin, the color did seem to migrate a little after a few hours.

    Thx for the review! How do they compare to MAC Pearlglide liners?

      No prob Stephanie =) These liners are definitely comparable to the Pearlglides. They are both pigmented with a smooth, creamy texture but I do find the shimmer to show up more for the MAC.
