Happy Skin Eye Am Here To Stay Gel Pencil Eyeliner Review

9:31:00 AM

I've recently enrolled to an Ashtanga Yoga class and I've discovered a couple of products that proved to be long lasting even with all the sweat coming out due to yoga practice.

Wouldn't you love to place your bets on someone you can trust? Imagine this: Someone who promises to stand by you through tears—both happy and sad. Someone who helps transform you into the best you that you can possibly be. Someone who brings out the sparkle in your eye. The same criteria apply to eyeliners.

Available in Three Shades: Perfect Black, Chic Brown, and Peppermint

The Happy Skin team sent me two shades of their eyeliner, in Chic Brown and Peppermint. This was sent together with the Summer Collection a few months ago which you can check HERE.

I honestly love the packaging of this gel eyeliner. It's quite cute but still chic at the same time. This is an Auto pencil, so you only need to twist in order to get the product out. The tiny sharpener at the bottom always comes in handy, whenever I want the tip of my eyeliner to be sharper.

Here is how Chic Brown looks when worn. If you notice it is not completely matte since it has visible gold shimmers.

Happy Skin Eye Am Here To Stay 24h Gel Pencil Auto Eyeliner in the shade Chic Brown – is a deep cocoa tinge that gives eyes a soft, natural shape. Best for those who want their eyes to appear bigger.

This is how the Peppermint shade looks on me. I was skeptical with this shade at first, since it's the first time I've seen a mint shade eyeliner. But when I tried it on my waterline, it definitely was an instant wake me up kind of eyeliner!

Happy Skin Eye Am Here To Stay 24h Gel Pencil Auto Eyeliner in the shade Peppermint – is a better alternative to white and flesh eyeliner, this is the perfect eye brightener!

I've worn both eyeliners for a few months now and I have to say I'm overly impressed! This thing doesn't budge, smudge or smear at all! I've tried washing it with a liquid hand soap and it's still there. I had to rub the swatch on my hand so hard until I was able to remove most, but not completely. 

I've also worn this during exercise and in yoga class, where I really sweat a lot and it's still there like nobody's business. There was a time, I woke up one morning and noticed that I still had my eyeliner on. I completely forgot to remove it the night before, because it looks so natural on my upper lash line, that I forgot I had it on. That's about 24 hours of wear, literally and it stayed!

What I like about it...
* affordable
* easily accessible for us pinays
* it's an auto pencil, and has a free sharpener at the bottom
* the packaging is sturdy and doesn't feel like it's made of cheap plastic
* has a smooth and velvety texture
* easy to apply and glides on easily without tugging my lids
* smudge proof, sweat proof, waterproof, budge proof
* long lasting, I've proven it literally stays on for 24 hours on my upper lash line
* stays for a good 3 hours on my waterline before it starts to fade
* the product itself does not break, I've tried other gel liner pencils before that snaps easily

* did not experience any allergies or irritation

What I don't like...
* the shade Chic Brown has shimmers, so I wouldn't recommend this to those with sensitive eyes
* can only be removed with an oil based makeup remover

My rating: 5 / 5

This eyeliner definitely reached HG status for me! It's the best formulation of Gel Eyeliner Pencil I've ever tried to date. In addition to that, it glides on smoothly and applies like a breeze. The Peppermint shade looks a whole lot better on those with lighter and fairer skin.  I just wish this they also make this in dark brown without any shimmer, then I'd be more than ecstatic.

Don't forget to like their Facebook Page Happy Skin Cosmetics and follow them on Instagram HappySkin_PH for more updates.

Until next time.

    1. @Precious Pear and @Beauty Editer it does look great and it's very opaque too ^_^

  5. i find it quite pricey at first pero since it works well on you and it's waterproof, i mght give this a chance!

    1. @kikaysimaria, I had the same thought sis, but when I tried the product, it's definitely worth it!

  6. I wanted to try chic brown before but i was not sure if i'll like the glitters. :/ I'll prolly get the black one soon, good thing it doesn't budge yay for that. :D


    1. @Steph, try it on their counter sis, they have testers naman. Chic Brown does not look shimmery in person. You can barely notice it, to be honest. My friend who's been using it, didn't even notice the shimmer until I told her. LOL

  7. I'm really interested in Chic Brown. I'm gonna start going to the gym next week and I just want something waterproof to wear. Actually I use their eye concealer when I jog so I might as well pair it up with an eyeliner from the same brand.

    1. @Ile I urge you to get this eyeliner if you're looking for something that is sweat proof during your workout. I swear this stuff stays put!

  8. Waahhhh I just bought an eyeliner from yves rocher yesterday huhu it's 400, 100 nalang, I shouldve bought this instead. I like the brown sana they'll make one without the shimmers. I'm on a shopping ban but I will put this in my list of to buy stuff hihi

    1. arrrg! sayang naman sis. I swear, you have to try this.

  9. I love the brown liner swatch! but how do you take them off your lids if it's THAT sweatproof and waterproof? :)

    1. @nicole, it's easy to remove with a makeup remover

  10. I'm still kinda skeptical since I have the liquid liner one and it is such a pain work with! Plus the only gel liner experience that I had (in2it) was a total miss! But I still might give this a try. I'm actually thinking about purchasing it tomorrow hahaha. But still unsure because oh my oily lids might not be able to handle it.

    1. @Vee check it out, I think they have testers naman. just sharpen the top off for hygenic purposes... I've tried the one from in2it it was a total fail as well.

  11. chic brown looks amazing!!! gonna look for it now ♥ thank you!!
