O.M.G…I am so excited to share with you guys my review on the TonyMoly Backstage Gel Eyeliner. Why am I so excited? For one, I’m always in search of a great eyeliner, and although I have some of my favorites, ( pencil and felt-tip) a new edition never hurts, and besides, gel eyeliners are my preferred choice of eyeliner, in general. My favorite pro of gel eyeliners is that they’re extremely versatile. A gel eyeliner can be used a base for eyeshadow, a tightliner, a waterliner, can be used to create a precise line, etc…although I hadn’t purchased one,
because all the good gel eyeliners are expensive, and the brush is usually a separate purchase anyways- until now. I skimmed the reviews of this particular gel eyeliner, because so many people raved about it, and it was only 9 USD, so I figured why not give it a shot, as TonyMoly is one of my favorite brands, and they haven’t let me down yet! Besides, it’s one of their best-selling products.
The packaging is clever- the brush is built into the top of the cap, although the handle is rather small for my taste. Despite the size, it’s sturdy, and the brush is firm and dense, but soft…Most cheap brushes generally feel “plasticy”, rough and don’t hold its form, but this particular brush is good quality, and maintains its form. Another pro is that the shape of the eyeliner brush is a triangular shape, so it’s easier to draw a sharp winged-out line. The actual gel eyeliner is a dream. It’s incredibly creamy, glides on effortlessly, and is a rich black. I’m not sure whether to describe the black as a “carbon black” but I think it’s definitely an intense black xD. I’ve had no difficulties of applying this eyeliner on the waterline, tighlining, lashline, etc, as it’s extremely creamy, although it’s not completely smudgeproof of waterproof.
Overall, I’m extremely impressed with this eyeliner, because it not only surpasses in price, but in quality!!!!
5 stars for me…
