My Take on Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Gel Eyeliner

This is the best gel liner I have used till date. Well, I own gel liner from Maybelline, Coastal Scents and ELF (well, I have not tried it as yet ๐Ÿ˜› ), but I can simply say that Elizabeth Ardenโ€™s gel liner is the best among what I have come across in terms of quality and texture.

Elizabeth Arden

It is a matte dark brown gel eye liner. Itโ€™s more of a brown black liner than a chocolate brown one. This is a shade that would easily suit all skin tones and be visible on pigmented eye lids even.

It is like silk, pure silk to touch and feel. Glides and sets like a dream. :jalwa: The liner is waterproof, smudge proof and dries off like lightening. :whistle:

Gel eyeliner

The brush is super soft, even softer than many of my eye shadow brushes I just love the way I can easily use it to apply a thick or a thin liner.

The gel liner comes in an attractive red/black cardboard packaging which has all the necessary details and ingredient list mentioned. The liner is packed in a glass container with a glossy black screw lid on top. The container is almost non-breakable as I accidently dropped it hard on the tiled floor, but nothing happened to it. ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜‰



The brush comes inside the cardboard box only, but in its own plastic wrapping and a tight plastic covering for its bristles. Itโ€™s a beautiful golden black combination brush whose bristles are super duper soft.

Staying Power:

The liner can be used on the waterline safely as there is no fragrance or glittery effect attached to it. On top of the lid, without any primer/base, the liner stayed easily for 6 hours after which it started fading evenly. On the waterline too, it stayed for around 4 hours on me, actually that depends on how thick/dark you apply it. I applied it lightly on the waterline though.

Pros of Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Gel Eyeliner

  • Highly pigmented and a lovely dark brown shade.
  • The shade is less intense than the black gel liners and gives a lovely natural look to the eyes for a daytime wear.
  • Silk-like soft and smooth in texture.
  • The brush is soft, compact and very useful in application.
  • Waterproof and totally smudgeproof.
  • Lasts for 6-7 hours with a primer and a little less without one.
  • Can be safely used on the waterline too.
  • Comes in a durable, attractive and travel-friendly packaging.
  • Dries off quickly and can be simply removed using any face cleanser or makeup remover.

Cons of Elizabeth Arden Color Intrigue Gel Eyeliner

Well, I canโ€™t think of any except for the availability issue.




Yes, I would definitely want to try the teal shade available the very next time I can get some stuff from my friend. I am super impressed with this one and totally and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who loves a natural-looking gel liner on a daily basis.
