a few weeks back, i posted about my mini tony moly haul – which include 2 gel eyeliners.
so finally was able to road test the products and i am ready for my review 😀
background: i love gel eyeliners! i think that it is sooo much better than a pencil eyeliner because it lasts longer and it’s better than liquid eyeliner because it is so much easier to apply.
i do have pencil and liquid eyeliners but i tend to gravitate towards my gel eyeliners more 🙂
what i like:
1. compared to other gel eyeliners, these are really inexpensive – a pot costs P498 only!
2. they have a lot of colors to choose from. though i only have the blue and violet, i remember that they have at least 3 more colors that you can choose from.
3. very long lasting. it lasts the whole day on me.
4. water and smudge proof! no panda effect even after sweating 🙂
5. the colors are pigmented
what i don’t like:
1. compared to my bobbi brown gel eyeliner, i find that the texture of these are less ‘creamy’. usually, when i dip my brush into the bobbi brown gel eyeliner, the brush tip sinks into the product. but for the tony moly gel eyeliners, it doesn’t. this is not necessary a bad thing – but i find that it’s much easier to get an even application if use the bobbi brown
2. the brush is too thick to get a precise application. i’d rather use my bobbi brown ultra fine eyeliner brush or the sigma E65.
3. though i cannot confirm this, i feel that the tony moly has a tendency to dry faster than my other gel eyeliners. everytime i use it, the product seems less creamy and more dry! (or maybe it’s my imagination??) so make sure you keep a tight lid on the product.
mrskendz’ verdict: highly recommended
having said all that, i still feel that this product is definitely worth a try! 🙂 i especially like the blue color because the color is playful and it brings out the brown of my eyes.
but as with other gel eyeliners – be extra careful to keep the lid tightly closed or you’ll dry out the product. also, make sure that you clean your brush between application to prevent contamination 😉
i’ll post a short tutorial on how to apply eyeliners soon. i am still trying to figure out how best to do so (pictures vs. video???).
anyway, i do hope you guys liked this review!

good night everyone! hope you had a great monday!
a new korean brand makeup store just opened in megamall and i just had to check it out. i was actually hoping to find a BB cream that will fit my skin tone. sadly, i didn’t find one – all the BB creams were still too light for me. sigh 😦
BUT! i did get a few products which i am excited to try! 🙂
here are the colors of the eyeliners:
i opted for pearl navy and pearl violet colors because i still have black and brown gel liners. wanted to try something different 🙂
here are the swatches:
one of the cool things i found about these gel liners is that it comes with a brush!
i got excited about the powder coz (1) it matched my skin and (2) it says BB in the name bwahahaha. i hope i’ll be able to use this though! (impulse buying!!!)
oh! and since i purchased more than P1k, i get a free tony tint!!! 🙂 can’t wait to try this one!
can’t wait to try these products more! 🙂
good night peeps! and again, thanks for dropping by!
