Inexpensive Beauty Find: Skin Food Choco Eyeline Jam

So many brands seem to come up with gel liners now. You can get them in every price range from very expensive (think Suqqu) to super cheap like Etude House or one of my current favorite brands: Skin Food.

I have several criteria to define a good gel liner (my personal thoughts):
-It has to apply smoothly and not waxy/sticky/goopy
-It has to be well pigmented. I don't want to layer 100000 times
-It has to dry to a budge-proof finish to stay in place all day long

Other good things are:
-Cute packaging =)
-Good color selection
-Cheap price
-Included brush (if it's a good one)

The Skin Food Choco Eyeline Jam gel liners fulfill most of my criteria.

They're quite soft and apply really smoothly and evenly. They're really pigmented, especially the dark colors.
The line doesn't smudge at all and the little glass jars are really pretty. There are 5 colors to choose from which is a decent variety.
There is no brush included but for a cheap retail price of 6000 Won (about US$6) that's fine.

All in all those liners are really good. They easily compare to more expensive brands like Kate or Maquillage.

I paid about US$10/each for my liners and they're really worth it.

I have 3 colors:
#1 Deep Black: Matte intense black

#2 Deep Mocha: Very dark neutral brown

#4 Satin Green: A shimmery medium neutral green.

There are also a orange-brown and a warm violet shade available.

These look pretty, especially the green one. I just tried out my first SkinFood product, the Peach Sake Pore Minimizing Base, and am in love with it. It smells so delicious. The ebay seller you recommended also included a nice little bag of extras, including the Black Raspberry eye cream (another good one!).

Anyway, to get to the point of my comment, I see you mentioned SUQQU. Have you ever tried their clear powder? I've heard a lot of raves about it but have never talked to anyone who actually used it and am really curious as to how it is.

Keep up the great blogging!

The only Suqqu items I tried so far are 3 of their eyeshadow palettes and a nail polish.
Sorry that I can't be of more help =)

hi Kathi,

i went to look at Skinfood's gel liner after reading your post, and the shimmery green, dark violet and shimmery orange brown are pretty! but was wondering, comparing this with Kate's, which would you recommend?
