Review: Tony Moly Backstage gel eyeliner - Black

I have this Tony Moly Backstage gel eyeliner in black for a long time already, to be precise, ever since my third Gmarket order arrived about two years ago. I have only used it once or twice, because a gel liner is just not the right thing to get, when you have never drawn a neat line before. After reading the cat eyes tutorial from Misa, it made me want to take the Tony Moly gel eyeliner out again to practice.

Review: Tony Moly Backstage gel eyeliner - Black

The Tony Moly gel eyeliner has a very interesting packaging: the brush can be clicked into the pen holder like lid of the gel eyeliner. After taking the brush out, you can extend the brush's length with another 1 cm (make sure to twist it for it to keep in place). The brush has really good hairs that do not disperse (no matter how hard you press) and are made of strong material that is very flexible. Thanks to that, you can very easily apply the gel eyeliner. The good brush and handy packaging (I cannot really lose the brush) are the main reasons, I bought this gel eyeliner from Tony Moly.  

First thing, I noticed is that the black gel didn't dry out after all those years and the texture is as smooth as I remembered it to be. The black is very opaque and if you want to smudge it a bit, you need to do it, before it dries down in a few minutes. After it has fully dried, it stays smudge and waterproof for the whole day. It is not one of Tony Moly's bestseller product for nothing. ^_^

I really have to assure you that the cat eyes tutorial by Misa is excellent and easy to learn, it is just me having bad makeup skills. ^_^ I did my best, but as you can see in the pictures below, the result isn't as cat eye as I wanted it to be. I also didn't manage to make the other eye look the same as the right eye, so no pictures of both my eyes. :P
