Askmewhats Reviews: Coastal Scents Gel Liner in Truffle

Lovely people!
How's the Christmas celebration? I went to the mall to have lunch with my family and had fun because family is complete! Brother came back to the Philippines. It was a great lunch, we ate at Pepper Steak (will show you the photos of the food soon!)

Dinner came we had Christmas Dinner at Fish & Co. with my husband's family! So it was a day of EATING! :) The mall is packed with so many people! I just can't believe there's "recession" going on!

Anyways, let me go straight to a review!

My review is based only to the ONE color I've tried, TRUFFLE

  • no smudging
  • lasts all day
  • easy to apply, dries quickly
  • pigmented
  • does not cause any eye allergies (for me)
  • easy to remove with make-up remover
  • I've used it on my waterline too and it stayed for 6 hours, which is good! It didn't smudge, it was just gone by late afternoon!
  • not available locally, shipping is expensive!
  • the jar is not labeled, if you purchase a lot, you have to put the name by yourself to avoid confusion

CS Gel Liner in Truffle is a true matte brown color. I like it because it is very pigmented and it does gives out a very natural look!

The other gel liner I've used is my HG Stila Smudgepots in Black. I've heard and read so many raves about the CS Gel Liner in True Black but it was out of stock when I ordered Truffle. I have great experience with Truffle, I actually danced the whole lunch time and I was sweating like crazy and it stayed on till I remove my make-up.

With the price itself without the shipping cost, it is worth it and very inexpensive, but added with the shipping cost, I can just buy myself a Bobbi Brown or MAC gel liners.

  • If you plan to purchase the CS liners, do read reviews and look for swatches online as I've read some of the colors are not pigmented enough and you have to apply many times for the colors to show up. Research please!
  • Use an angled liner brush or a thin angled brush depending on which one you're more comfortable to use.
  • Always close the lid between applications to prevent the product from drying up
Will I repurchase?

Yes! They came out with more colors!!! I want more!!!

Where can you purchase and how much?

At Coastal Scents website for $6.95 (shipping NOT included)

I usually just draw a thin line during work days!
Here's how it looks like after more than 12 hours!
I love that it stayed on, no smudging and it didn't fade!

Plan to buy CS Gel Liners yourself?
I honestly plan to get more!

I am definitely waiting for discounts again!

So if you see any CS discounts or coupons coming up!

Do holler! :D


  1. Hi!
    Enjoyed reading your blog!
    Looking forward to read more

    Merry Christmas

  2. Merry Christmas, thanks for the review. It sounds promising.

  3. ohhhhhh xcellent review i was on the fence about purchaing truffle for myself, but was worried about how the color would look, but seeing your sample - it looks perfect.....

    i gotta try these, but you're right shipping is a rip...booo

    happy holidays to you beautiful lady!!!

  4. cool! i want their other colours too! currently waiting for the spree from my local seller to start. hehe! :D

  5. did you have to put a lot of layers on for it to be that dark? i have a brown loreal hip liner, but it's pretty sheer and i have to put a few layers on for it to be dark enough.

  6. Beeyoutiful7, thanks

    Dwana, Merry X'mas too and you're welcome :) It is promising!

    Tia, shipping makes me save money, I don't buy a lot online due to shipping rates! :) But when sales come..ohhhh :)

    Plue, truffle is definitely good, I wonder how BARK would look like, this is more on a reddish brown , I want one that goes on DARK BROWN like almost black, but knowing you, you want the sparkly ones :)

    Aika, I'll let you know :)

    Lily, its very pigmented (Truffle Color) just one swipe, the color came out like that of my EOTD :)

  7. hi nikki merry christmas! i've seen a review on aileen's blog and the colors look really pretty! however, i've never owned a gel liner before and i'm still not confident enough to line my lids with them.

  8. The color looks so yummy!! Just like chocolate syrup! *slurps*

    it really sounds great ya!! Long lasting and pigmented!! But like you say, shipping's a killer!! Unless there's a sale, otherwise i think i'll try MAC's!

  9. This is a reddish brown? That's nice. I have only the one from Kate. I might buy this! :P

    Oh gosh, like you, I am constantly thinking of how BARK looks like too! :P

  10. Crystal, well true, don't use it if you're not comfortable! :) I'm so comfortable with gel liner coz they lasts the whole day and super waterproof :) Great for clients! :)

    Jenn, true, if I add up shipping and the price of the product, I can just go to a Bobbi Brown or Mac store and purchase their gel liners! :)

    Plue, it isn't super reddish brown but I can see hint of super dark reddish brown kinda color :) I want BARK for sure, I think Bark is a super dark matte brown color :)

  11. i want deep plum for sure! i might just get this and truffle for fun! LOL!

    i go get my work done, and i can blog! whee!

  12. the color is lovely and they have a nice variety of colors

  13. I've heard and read so much about Coastal Scents but somehow I never get the urge to try it. Strange. Still, its good to know there's an affordable gel liner that works so well, crappy shipping aside :) Sounds like you had a great Christmas!

  14. I have it in Indigo Blue and it looks really nice too! I'm not too fond of the new colors though. They look like they'd make better cream eyeshadows than liners.

  15. Thanks for the review. The color looks gorgeous and so pigmented.

  16. Haha! Recession is not valid for some people. Theres lots of people in the mall the other day that people kept pushing each other. :P Merry Christmas!! :D I miss Christmas there :(

  17. that's really a nice liner on you

  18. Plue! Let me know how you like them!!! Lemming Lemming ME!

    Yumeko, yeah, they have but I read not all colors are good :)

    Parisb :) I had a great X'mas I'm sure you did too! :) And true about crappy shipping, can't all companies just give out free shipping worldwide? well on 2nd thoughts, we'll spend more! LOL

    Connie, Indigo Blue --- CHECK! wishllist! LOL

    Gio, you're welcome!

    Iyah, oohh Iyah, I want to say come down here but it's not even good! Traffic, people pushing each but yeah..that's the spirit of X'mas down here! hahhhaha

    Jojoba thanks girl! :)

  19. If you plan to buy again. I hope that you would let me know. Share the bill for the shipping?
