I saved the best for last! Which is weird because I never thought I’d be so smitten with a red gel eyeliner, but here we are. Anyway, the product in question is the 3CE Gel Eyeliner in #L.O.V.E.. 3CE or 3 Concept Eyes is the makeup arm of Korean fashion brand, Stylenanda. I’ve had the pleasure of trying out 4 items from this awesome, mid-range brand so far, and I’m in love with all of them!
This gel liner is super creamy and is pretty much a dream to work with since the color glides on so smoothly on your lids and is so opaque in just one swipe. The pot of product, which is housed in frosted glass, comes with a super nifty liner brush (flat and somewhat tapered) which is what I used to apply it.
You can use it to apply broad strokes or thinner ones, depending on which side you use. As you can see from these swatches, the product is ultra creamy and is super pigmented. All of these swatches were made with just one dip.
I used it above the Graymelin eyeliner we got this month, which is in brown. I’m not sure if I can wear the red liner on its own. It will provide definition for sure, but I feel like the brown anchors it. Look at how lush and beautiful it is, though. The liner is pretty thick, but when I open my eyes, it disappears:
It’s like my little secret. 🙂 So far, I feel like this is the best gel liner I’ve ever tried. Next on the list is the shu uemura Painting Liner. I have a love/hate relationship with gel liner, but I feel like if this was my introduction to the product, I would probably be a gel liner convert from the get go.
This retails for $13.21 on the 3CE website—well worth it for the quality of the product. This is truly a gem that I’m glad I got to try.
