Ofra Cosmetics Fixline Eyeliner Review

Recently I posted my review of Ofra Cosmetics’ Makeup Fixer setting spray, which I love. Another product Ofra gave me is their Fixline Eyeliner. I’m not really a big eyeliner person in general, but I’ve been exploring it more lately so I was interested in giving this a try.

Oh. Em. Gee. This eyeliner may bring me back to gel eyeliners. I would have to say that when I do wear eyeliner I normally gravitate towards using a shadow with a liner brush or a pencil. I find those to be the easiest ones to work with. However, this little baby is really good and is definitely winning me over.

This gel liner comes in a teensy little jar (about the same size as a Stila mini smudgepot). It’s only 5g of product, but I really don’t mind that because this is a product that does dry out and go bad eventually. You also need a very little bit of it at a time, so this little jar will last a long time. The consistency is what I like best. When I dip my brush in, to me it looks more creamy and honestly almost mousse like because it’s so soft. I find that to be a VERY nice texture to work with because you don’t really get any skipping when you’re making your line, similar to a liquid liner. However since it is a gel, you can work slower than with a liquid and it’s more forgiving. I can push it into my upper lashline and tightline with it without having to hope it doesn’t end up anywhere else, haha.

Basically, I like that this eyeliner makes me look good. In other words, makes it look like I’m a total pro at applying eyeliner. I’m so not. And I’m the first one to admit it. The “beauty things I suck at” tag? I could sum it up pretty quickly: EYELINER. But because Ofra’s Fixline Eyeliner is soooo easy to use, I can apply it with confidence.

The particular color I have is their blackety blackest black called Triple Black. Ofra Fixline Eyeliner is available in 6 other colors: Black, Shiny Green, Aqua Goddess, Brown, Navy, and Purple. I hope more colors are developed in the future because I LOVE this so far. It is available from Ofra Cosmetics for $17.

If you’re wondering what brush I use to apply it, I have been loving the Bdellium Tools 710 eyeliner brush, which is a really really fine tip brush. Another similar one that I like as well is the MAC 210. If you are looking for a pointed brush, I recommend the Bdellium Tools brush over the MAC one because it’s a bit firmer and much cheaper while still being high quality. It’s also synthetic so if you’re vegan etc. that’s an important consideration. :)

BUT BACK TO THE EYELINER. This post is about eyeliner.

For those of you who saw me post this photo on Instagram, I am wearing the Ofra Fixline Eyeliner Gel in it!

The day this photo was taken, I wore this eyeliner to work (haha, pic was actually taken at work hence the bright-ass lighting). I applied it around 8:15 and wore it til before bed at around 11 and it looked exactly like this when I removed it. Pretty damn impressive.

Speaking of Instagram, if you’re not following me on Instagram please do! I love love love Instagram and I love seeing other people’s photos so if you follow me I’ll follow you back. :) I will warn you though I post many many pics of cats. But if you like cats, you’ll enjoy my Instagram feed very much. :D

  1. Is this eyeliner waterproof also on the lower water line?

    • Alyson says

      Hi! The term “waterproof” refers to a very specific quality in a product that has to adhere to certain guidelines. This eyeliner isn’t waterPROOF necessarily but it wears really, really long!
