Shades by Gal Super Gel Eyeliners Review & Swatches

 Hello dolls, if you remember, I posted first impressions of Shades by Gal Cosmetics probably a month back. As promised I am here with the detailed review of one of their products and these are Super gel Liner pencils by Shades by Gal Cosmetics. 
Packaging: Shades by Gals Super Gel liners are 5 inches sleek pencils in black packaging with white logo. There is a color strip on the other side of the pencil that shows the color which is very convenient. These can be sharpen easily with any sharpener. The three shades that I got are Ivy, Noble and Florentine. Lets discuss the shades and then I’ll share my views about the quality of these Super Gel liners.
Noble : Noble is a gorgeous vibrant blue shade which looks beautiful on the lids.
You can use it as a liner or apply it like an eyeshadow.
Florentine: Love this beautiful purple shade. It can be mixed and matched with other bright
 shades for different makeup looks.
Ivy : Ivy is a brown black shade with intense pigmentation. It can be used on waterline and is also
 great for the smokey eye look.

 My Views:
         The pencils are buttery soft, glide on with no tugging or pulling or trouble whatsoever. Right after application you have some time to blend or smudge if you want to, and after a few minutes they set in and stay for hours. This makes them great as a base for shadow, or in place of eye shadow. It's perfect to fill your lid with or blend with your finger. These gel pencils are a great addition to your quick makeup routine, for sure.
I love how they apply on eyes and stay on for hours. I tried them on my sister's eyes without any primer or eye shadow base. She has oily skin and her eyelids are extremely oily.These stayed on her eyes for 6 hours straight without fading. After six hours I felt slight budging.

 You can use them both on the lids and waterline. They won't irritate you eyes at all. They are intense. The formula is very nice. Pigmentation and color payoff is amazing! You have to use makeup remover to remove these.

My Recommendation:They only thing that disappointed me is the price tag. These are not budget friendly. I feel you can get same quality stuff in alot cheaper price. Any how If you aren’t bothered by the price and you really want something that stays on your eyes and doesn't budge or smudge all day then try out these gel liner pencils. You’ll be blown away by the quality.
Price & Availability:  Price is $15.99 for a single pencil and you can get them online here.
