BYS Black Magic Gel Eyeliner Review

bys gel eyeliner reviewI have been looking for an eyeliner pen that could replace my Mirenesse Hydra Gel Eyeliner and sadly, I haven’t found anything yet that’s as good as my favorite so I decided to just go back to gel liners instead. If you’re looking forward to drawing the perfect winged eyeliner but you still get intimidated with pen liners, I’d suggest practicing on a gel liner first. The BYS Black Magic Gel Eyeliner is perfect for beginners.

affordable gel eyelinerI got my BYS Black Magic Eyeliner on my BYS Matte Maven Glamourbox. However, that box is no longer available. You can still get it at the Glamourbox site for only 549php though. I believe it is also available on some Watson Stores and SM Department Store’s Beauty Department.BYS Black Magic Gel Eyeliner Review

BYS Black Magic Gel Eyeliner Pros:
  • Affordable. It only retails for 549php and it already comes with an angled brush. I think it’s safe to say that itΒ  is a great alternative for Mac Fluidline Gel Eyeliner.
  • It lasts all day.
  • Does not dry up easily. I’ve had mine for months now and the consistency remains the same. Some gel liners are notorious for drying up in a matter of a month or two.
  • Easy to work with. Gel liners in general are easier to work with than pen liners. That’s the case for me, how about you?
BYS Black Magic Gel Eyeliner Cons:
  • It doesn’t dry as matte as I’d like it to be.
  • I am not a fan of the angled brush that it came with. In this case, I prefer using the Suesh Angled brush or the one from Sigma. I feel like the brush it came with is too soft and a bit thick. It doesn’t give me the precise line that I’d like to achieve.
BYS Black Magic Eyeliner Swatch:

As you can see, you can either create a thin or a thick line with it. You can also use this as a base if you’re planning to do a really dark eye makeup. It can create a really sexy smokey eye if you blend it while it hasn’t set yet.

I’d say it lives up to its claims, formulation wise. The brush however does not really give out a precise line. Or did I just get a bad batch of the brush?

Well anyway, if you’re looking for a good gel eyeliner that’s not gonna break the bank, the BYS Black Magic Gel Eyeliner is worth a try! πŸ™‚

    Now i’m using a pen eyeliner, but i plan to buy gel one next. This review was really helpful πŸ™‚ I like that you gave us both pros and cons – beauty bloggers usually tend to be biased in reviews. Is there any other color or only black?

    I am still not confident to apply eyeliner. It gets messy every time I try. haha. As you describe it, should be perfect for practicing though.Let me have a second thought for this.

    Ive been seeing a lot of this eyeliner lately. I was about to get one sana when i realized i still have one unboxed yet but its another brand. Currently im using the tony moly and so far i like it. Would be better if you showed some photos of you wearing the eyeliner..

    I don’t wear much makeup but eyeliner is one of the things I do wear most days. I always use the pencil. I think this would be a little tricky to use. I’m willing to give it a try through as I could always take it off if it looked too bad.

    I have never tried gel eyeliner before. But why not? After reading this, I would buy it if I saw it in a shop. I don’t use it very often. But a good eyeliner is very important. It’s already hard enough to put it on the right way haha.

    I seldom wear make up and honestly not too knowledgable about make ups. But when somebody does my make up, they would often tell me that an eyeliner can enhance my eyes and over all look. I might consider this should I shop for eyeliners. Thanks.

    I use eyeliner but most of the time it’s the pen type. My first gel eyeliner is from Tony Moly. I bought it from Althea Korea and seems great also. How long does it last? πŸ˜€

    The swatches look good. Not super black, a little bit buildable I would say. I love liquid liner. It gives us women bigger eyes!

    Girl! We have the same eye liner! I’m actually a big fan of BYS. I also have there eye brow gel and yes I agree with you. I bought it around 400-500php thinking that it’s expensive but in reality, it’s really good for the long run. πŸ™‚
