PRODUCT REVIEW: Elianto Gel Liner

For months now, i've been lemming for MAC's fluidline. But its cost stops me from getting one, and believe me, i won't even stop on getting only one. besides, i have a lot of mineral e/s that i can convert to an eyeliner. So when my sis and I dropped by Elianto weeks ago, i was so happy to see that they already have a gel liner. The Face Shop has too but their testers are dried up already that i can't seem to convince myself to get one despite its much lower price than that of MAC's.
priced at P299, its description says:
Gellified texture for prominent, lasting and smooth finishing, water resistant eyeline. Paint above the eye lid with liner brush and blend evenly.

available colors: Black and Deep Brown

I was excited to try it but i don't have any angled eyeliner brush to use with it. i have lots of pointed e/l brush though but since this is gel, i would need something angled. So i went to MAC and got myself their 266 brush (hahahha, me trying to save by not getting their fluidlines and yet getting their brush!)

but to my dismay, i found their brush too soft to be used for Elianto's gel liner. but i am sure it works well with their fluidlines. its just that the consistency of Elianto liner is not that as creamy as that of MAC. so i had to find another brush that will work with it....and fortunately, i found one that has been sitting all this time inside my "backup" stash:

i got this brush at landmark...i guess price ranging from Php30-40. It's more stiff and just right enough to scrape some product from the pot.

and this is my MAC 266. i want to hit my head real hard for getting this and not being able to use it with my gel liner...does this mean i would need to get their fluidlines too so i can put this into good use?
(thinks)
hahahaha

after my 10-hr shift:
my verdict:
it stayed put and didn't smudge. all you need is an angled eyeliner brush that would be stiff enough to scrape the product from the jar and some eyelining skills and you're good to go. i haven't used this on my waterlines though since i'm scared that the brush will poke my eyes.
hehehe...
will i buy again? yes, i'll get the other shade which is brown. for it's price, it does the job well. but i still have my eyes on MAC's fluidlines!
uh-oh!
so there..i hope my review can help you decide whether to get this new product from Elianto. If there's anybody who have tried this too, please let us know what you think about it too!
tata!

Hi jheng! I've been a lurker of your blog for a few months now.
Anyway, I love my elianto gel liner too! For me I think it's way better than fluidline, mas mahirap kase tanggalin yung sa elianto compared to my fluidline.

I'll link your site to my blog by the way :)
