Review: Revlon ColorStay Creme Gel Eye Liner in Brown

Another Revlon makeup to try is their gel eye liner. Gel eye liner gained it popularity for its long lasting wear and you could use it as an eye shadow base too. Revlon is not missing out of the trend and came out with a gel liner under the ColorStay range. Their gel liner comes with a build-in gel liner brush which is travel-friendly and convenient.

Revlon Creme Gel Eye Liner in Brown - Swatch

The shade that I have here is brown which is a matte dark brown with bits of silver glitters to it. If you’re not a fan of glitters this might not be for you. I have swatched this using the brush itself and its glides on easily. The brush is kept at the gel liner cap and once removed, just turn the other way and place it back to the cap to become the holder.

Revlon Creme Gel Eye Liner in Brown - Application

Even eye lining on my lash line is not difficult at all. Its goes on smoothly and the effect looks like as though I have used pencil. However, during the application the brush comes off from the holder very often. It doesn’t hold the brush tight  enough.

Revlon Creme Gel Eye Liner in Brown - Lasting Power

A day test of this gel liner shows a mix result.

  • 8:52AM – Freshly applied the gel liner without primer
  • 2:33PM – The gel liner on my both of my lash line faded, I have also accidentally sweep over it my left eye lid.
  • 6:24PM – The gel liner on my right lash line looks the same from the afternoon but on my left faded very much.

I suppose if the gel liner remains untouched it will last better but it did fade a little by noon.

Revlon Creme Gel Eye Liner in Brown - Ingredients

Here is the ingredients listing for your reference.

Verdict?

I like that it comes with a brush but its not functional since the holder doesn’t hold up the brush tightly during application. It gives quite a natural look effect since the glitters doesn’t show as much. Its buttery that it glides on so easily but I did have to dip into the gel liner very often because I was worried if I picked up too much. Little goes a long way, plus the gel liner texture doesn’t feel wet.  The only trick to remain the gel liner lasting power is not to touch it at all but hey accidents do happen ya?
