* waterproof (see pics below)
* easy to remove with eye makeup remover
* very creamy and pigmented
* glides like a dream - does not tug my lids.
* pot is made of glass thus preventing the gel eyeliner from drying easily compared to plastic pots.
* no smudging, flaking, and fading throughout the day.

* KATE is not yet available here in Cebu city.
* No free brush included. Am I asking too much?! hehe

* always keep the cap tightly closed.
* always clean your eyeliner brush after using with a cotton pad + a few drops eye makeup remover.

Anyone who loves/wants to try gel eyeliners.

I recently dyed my hair 2 shades lighter (I used Revlon Colorsilk Light Golden brown #54) and using a black eyeliner during daytime looks too harsh on me, so this is an alternative to a jet black shade to soften my face.

Notice the tiny gold specks/shimmers?

I meant blackish-brown with gold flecks.

Placed my hand under running water for a few seconds and rubbed it 20x.
Staying power is amazing noh?!

What's your favorite gel eyeliner brand and shade?

I heard they're very good (hardly smudge nor budge)! But they dried up pretty quick. Used to come with a brush though..=\

Ahh I appreciate the matte version of KATE gel liners more, I've swatched the colored version when I was in hong Kong :) Nice and looks super natural but I like the dark eyeliner kasi my eyes are small :D
