Product Review: San San Gel Eyeliner with Vitamin E

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

     After ranting over my E.L.F. Eyeliner Pen on my last post, this gel eyeliner saves the day!

    A few months ago, I've been searching for San San Eyeliner Pen but it's always OOS. I saw this gel liner many times but I ignored it. Since I'm just starting to draw lines on my eyelid few months ago, I'm satisfied with liquid eyeliner and eyeliner pen. So when I dropped by at HBC SM Fairview branch, it was on sale so I dig in. I think it's time to try gel liner, eh?

     I bought color brown, black is always OOS according to the SA and looks harsh on me.

What I like:
  • It's easy to apply, glides smoothly on my eyelids.
  • It's affordable or should I say cheap!
  • The color payoff is okay.
  • Has Vitamin E.
  • Doesn't irritate my eyes.
  • Easy to remove, I use my facial wipes no need for makeup remover.
  • Simple packaging that comes with a decent brush.
  • There's a manufacturing and expiry date.
  • Easily accessible in all HBC stores.
What I don't like:
  • Not rub/smudge-proof.
Will I repurchase: Yes! After finishing the jar that I think will go a long way. 

     I give this a 5/5 rating. It's perfect for a newbie like me. I think this can be a HG material so I have to test and use it for one month. As for the price, it's really a steal! Since I just stay at home most of the time, a jar will last me a long time. 

     Do you use gel liners?What brand can you recommend?Have a great day ahead!

Good Times!~


  1. I think I'm gonna try out this brand. And also cheap compared to other brands!! :)

  2. I have the VOV gel liner, but I barely use it.. :( I'm so bad at putting gel liners with a separate brush! I'd love to try the San San Gel Eyeliner, but my eyelids are oily and since you wrote that it's not smudge-proof, it will just probably slide off my lids.. T__T

    I wish my lids were normal.. :(

  3. @Alyssa Yu- thanks for visiting my blog. this is worth a try!
    @Sumi Go- ok sana to kaya lang madali i rub off, sana meron din ganito for oily lids noh? it last for more than 6 hours on my not so oily lids

  4. This seems like a nice product except for the applicator. The brush seems a bit flimsy..but the shade ain't that bad plus the price is pretty affordable..thanks for the review..^_^~

  5. @Janet- the applicator is fine with me but there were times na di ko din kasundo. I'm using a another brush for this.

  6. i want to use liquid eyeliner pero di q maperfect ang pglalagay,either lagpas or kumakalat,wish you could teach me :)

  7. @sherry ann gole cruz- practice lang ng practice dear. I'll try to make a tutorial one of these days. It's good to start with pencil eyeliner for beginners
