Product Review: NYX Tres Jolie Gel Pencil Liner

Kathleen Lights has claimed in countless videos that is was the best liner for the water line and after months of looking for it in stores, I finally found it.



  • Very dark black color
  • Super smudgeable but dries down to not move around during the day
  • Twistable (up and down) for easy “sharpening”
  • Super low cost


  • Does not stay on my waterline
  • Can drag and skip sometimes on the lid because it is such a thick formula
  • You have to draw a little on the back of your hand sometimes to warm the pencil up enough to use

Overall, I am not impressed with this pencil. I have other liners that are just as black, just as long-wearing and a lot easier to use. I have very watery eyes so I don’t blame it for not staying in my waterline like it does for Kathleen but the other downfalls of the pencil make this a definite pass for me. I much prefer my ColourPop Liner in Swerve which does everything this one does, but better.
