Coastal Scents Gel Eye Liner True Black Review, Swatches

Coastal Scents Gel eye liner review

I bought this gel liner on my very dear friend Sireesha’s recommendation. After I tried felt tip liners, liquid liners, eye pencils, finally I thought I should try a gel liner too. She suggested that I should get this from Coastal scents and I know I can trust her blindly when it comes to make up . 🙂 I got this long back but never used it, as I thought that we could use this only with an angled brush, so I was waiting to get myself one. When I told this to sireesha she suggested that I can even use a normal liner brush for applying gel liners. Thank you so much sweetie, your tips always work 🙂 :-*

• The first & foremost thing I like is the whooping number of shades they offer. I haven’t seen any of our local brands offering as many colors.
• These gel liners are uber smooth in texture and just glide easily on the lids
• Doesn’t fade, smudge, tug, budge 😀 😀 😀
• Water line safe, I haven’t had any problems using it on my water line even with my contact lenses on.
• Gives Intense Dark black matt color in single swipe.
• Staying power is pretty good. Doesn’t fade much even after 4-5 hours.
• Dries instantly and we don’t have to wait for it to dry.


• THEY DRY!!!!!!!! 😐 😐 This is their major con, I don’t know it’s common with all gel liners or not, but this one dries out in the pot very soon.***
• Not available In India. Have to be ordered online via Coastal scents site using a credit card. (No paypal)
• Gives matt finish, if you are looking for a glossy black liner , you won’t like this much.
• Packaging is really simple, nothing impressive.
• Doesnot include applicator brush.
• Contains parabens

*** However the dried gel liner can be saved
• By using a liner sealer or Inglot’s duraline.
• Another trick is to slightly heat it with a blow drier before using it, and it will become soft , ready for use again ☺ ☺
• Jinal suggests that we should store/keep them upside down and they wont dry 😀 😀

Will I buy it again– I would buy only if I need other colors like brown or may be plum. Black I would rather buy Maybelline’s gel liner which is easily available here.

IMBB RATING 4/5 :-* :-* :-* :-* (-1 for the fact that it dries out badly )

  11. U have lined it sooo nicely noopur…!! ya I also store upside down…d gravity helps keep moisture at bay..n u knw maybelline does not dry..!!

    1. :thanks: bhoomika…. 😀 😀
      n i m gonna keep my liner upsidedown from now on…. 🙂 thnku !!!
      n i thot all gel liners dry up after some time :worship: :worship: :worship:

  12. Really nupur, upar waise sabne tareef kar di hai but still wud like to do it once again for u as u so much deserve it, liner has been put so nicely n neatly :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho:

  13. ur eyes look so pretty & u’ve applied this really well. I use Maybelline gel liner which is quite good too

  14. Next time, I would suggest you to buy Inglot black as it Rs 680 for 5.5 gm and Maybelline one is Rs375 for 2.8 gms, so actually Maybelline one is costly !!!

  15. Noopuriya

    U look fabulously awesomely gorgeously beautiful… :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

    ur eyes look beautiful…

  16. Nice review Nupur.. i have gold bliss, i dnt remember using it… its been with me for more thn an year and its soo dry tht i never used it.. 🙁

  17. where did my comment go? 🙁 🙁
    I commented yesterday only :waaa: :waaa: :waaa:
    may be my net :nababana: :nababana:
    I loved the liner….but it dries off na. Otherwise its comaparable to MAC fluidline 🙂
    I like the way u lined….perfect it izz :makeup:

  18. Just a tip for coastal gel liner users or any gel liner user whose liner has dried up:
    Mixing a drop of Olive oil (some people have suggested water as well) does the trick. Also, keep them cool, but warm the gel liner on your hand for better application (with your brush and hands clean, of course. Depending on where you live is also key. Hot, Humid areas tend to get the best of these eyeliners. If you live in a dry place and rather not mix water/oil into the liner as suggested also try this: loosen the cover slightly and place in near (NOT IN) a hot shower, the steam will moisten the gel liner enough for you. After using it, tightly shut the bottle and keep it in a cool place. Hope this helps.
