My take on the Revlon ColorStay Gel Eyeliner – 001 Black Noir
The liner comes in a glass bottle which is the base with an elongated screw cap, there is also a brush attached at the tip of the cap which is a very convenient option. The brush provided is a bit hard to apply on eyes, it is not very flexible and tends to poke in the eye if not used carefully. The bristles are very closely packed but not soft and fluffy, thus making application a bit tacky. But when you are travelling or don’t have any luxurious time, the brush can come in very handy.
The gel liner is a bit thick and creamy in consistency, I prefer a more thin consistency which is easy to spread. This one does not spread easily to give a smooth finish, it tugs near my lash area which I find it a bit uncomfortable. It gives a pure matte finish which I quite like. There is no form of sparkle or shimmer in the liner. There is also a tendency to take excess amount of the product while you apply. The quantity provided is also little and this is going to get over soon if i use it daily. Even though it has a creamy texture and glides well, it does not give a perfect finish to my eyes. Moreover the product tends to dry up fast on the brush which is even more bothersome. I have to constantly pick up the product so that it does not dry up.
The colour is almost jet black and stays on really well after application. When I wear it in the mornings, it stays till evening with slight smudging at the corners of the eye. The staying power is absolutely awesome, it is waterproof to a certain extent and can be only removed with a makeup remover. Overall it is an average product that is not over the top.

Cons of Revlon ColorStay Gel Eyeliner- 001 BlackNoir
The liner is creamy to a certain extent but the thickness makes it a bit inconvenient to create the perfect wing.
The brush provided is a little hard and it tends to poke the eye if not careful
The product tends to dry fast on the brush which makes it difficult to finish what we have started.
The colour is almost jet black but I prefer a little more intense black
The glass tub, though it looks cute, can cause breakage
3/5. It is an average gel liner that does not claim much appreciation. I feel it is a bit expensive considering the quantity provided.
Would I repurchase Revlon Gel Eyeliner- 001 Black Noir?
No,I am not very satisfied with the performance of this gel liner and I would like to try out other gel liners from other budget-friendly brands.
