Well I started using essence gel eyeliner after I had tried a number of eyeliners, which after long hours will melt away and would end up being spoiled. I took beauty advice from the style network of using the gel eyeliner and I will wear the eyeliner for eight hours without looking like a drag queen. I would advice young women like me to start using the gel eyeliner to shape your eyes. It is better than the liquid or pencil eyeliner.
