I love love love the Magical Tannsu gel liners and I am pretty sure they are the same as the ones on Coastal Scents. Though I am not 100% sure and I really don't like to compare it that way. Coastal Scents is known to get some of their stuff from suppliers so it's not a big deal if Magical Tannsu is carrying the same thing as well. You know?
But point being, here are some gel liners I received.
(Again, I say 'haul' in titles and tags cause I'm OCD about organization this way.)
I was sent these to try out and I guess as a token of appreciation by the owner of Magical Tannsu. Long story short, I helped a friend from Malaysia get her hands on some MT liners by ordering it, and handing it to her cousin who lives in Singapore and was going back to Malaysia. Hope that wasn't confusing!
So I really appreciate being sent these gel liners to try out as I have been looking into getting the whole arsenal of colors.
Now this color is GORGEOUS. I don't even know where to start with explaining how pretty this is. The thing about it is that this product seems to photograph a little bit blue. I mentioned it to Weiduo and apparently she has the same problem as well. How intriguing, but from the swatch below you can see the true color of it. I had to adjust the white balance in the above photo just so it shows up more true to life.
I think that I would be using these more of as a cream shadow base instead of a gel liner.
I have heard (about coastal scents eyeliners) that these work great for that as well. I mean how often do we really rim our eyes with bright purple eyeliner, versus how often we use a purple cream shadow base, yes?

Edit: Right now the color Witch isn't available on the website just yet, will update this entry or tweet if it is available.
These gel liners are available at S$10.90 each at Magical Tannsu. Aside from black, MT also carries it in other shades as well such as off-white, teal, coral and more!
With every purchase of the gel liner, you get a mattifying liner dust for free! This can be used to set your liner and that is a great tip to prevent liner from smudging if you face such issues.
The promotion going on right now is if you purchase 2 Gel Liners, you get the studio makeup eyeliner brush (dual-ended eyeliner brush) for free!
The gel liner is pigmented and very soft at the same time therefore It doesn't take a lot of product to draw a nicely pigmented line. I haven't used a whole lot of gel liners so I can't compare it to a range of products out there but I can say that if you love the Maybelline Gel Liners, I'm pretty sure you'll love this a lot more. Believe it or not, it's more pigmented then the Maybelline one and softer too! One really revolutionary thing about this gel liner is it's staying power, especially on the water line. This is the first liner product that I have ever tried that stays on my water line for up to 3-5 hours before starting to show signs of fading. As for smudging, I believe that is something that most gel liners do and is unavoidable but if you do set this with powder (like the mattifying powder provided) and all, it doesn't budge for a good amount of time before smoking out a little. It does not leave you with panda eyes, that I can assure you of. One thing to note, since this liner is quite creamy and all, do use it in moderation. A little goes a long way, do not pile on too much at once because that's just an invitation for it to smudge!
Would I purchase this again:
Yes, definitely. I'm thinking to get the other colors!
