Calvin Klein Gel Eyeliner in Black Ice Review

CK Gel Liner

My Experience with Calvin Klein Gel Eyeliner in Black Ice:

The liner comes in a regular gel liner packaging which is very regular and similar to other brands available in the market. I thought it will deliver more as compared to my regular Maybelline one, but I didn’t find it any better than other brands.  The color pay off is jet black and is very easy to apply.  Stays up to 6 hours and after that starts to smudge around my eye area. I have been using it for a month and I have already started noticing a bit of dryness in the product. It can be fixed with a bit of duraline but the product should not be drying so soon.

Calvin Klein Gel Liner

Applying this gel is not a problem at all. It easily glides on my eye area and sets in 2 seconds.  I also like the fact that it is fragrance free and doesn’t irritate my eye. It comes off easily with just one swipe of any makeup remover.  I am not very happy with the product as other drugstore brands are offering gel liners which work same as this and don’t dry up so soon.

Nice review Nidhi. I really liked the black color but after I read dries in a month so of no use. I don’t use all these on a regular basis. One more thing my maybelline gel liner appears a little dry and I got it only last month and have used only a couple of times.
