And for my next trick—a gel liner! The Backstage Gel Liner is one of TONYMOLY’s bestselling products, and I can totally see why. It applies smoothly and opaquely, and the liner itself is creamy to the touch. Once it sets, however, it won’t budge.
The color I got was #11 Diva Gray, but they have a lot of color offerings that I am keen to try once I use up a gel liner or two. #11 Diva Gray is a midtone, steely grey with a smattering of glitter. This formula is waterproof and long-wearing—definitely one of the better ones I’ve tried!
It’s a pretty dark-enough color for some definition and a little fun (hello, little wing!) but it’s not as harsh or dark as a black liner would be.
The packaging is a hit-or-miss for me, though I suppose it’s good for travel. While I don’t like the complicated, unbalanced shape (wide at the bottom, super narrow at the top), I do appreciate that the narrow end is a built-in applicator. It’s quite a good one, too. If you recall, I have uneven eye folds, so I use the thicker, flat end of the brush to line my right eye. The thin, skinny side is for the left eye. 🙂 The handle extends a little bit, too, so you can have a better grip of the product.
Another great thing about this product is that it’s affordable while being of great quality, and it’s a very accessible brand. We have TONYMOLY counters and boutiques in Manila, but if live overseas, this cult product is widespread all over eBay. 🙂* This product was provided, free of charge, to be reviewed as part of the bntgirls’ first mission.
