Review: Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel Matte 77 Black and Duraline

Inglot is one of those brands that I didn't hear a lot about before I started to get more into makeup. Back in the day on YouTube everyone seemed to be using their gel eyeliner and since then I've always wanted to try out some of their products. I already reviewed some of their pigments and contour powder and now I'll talk more about two of their most popular products - AMC Eyeliner Gel and Duraline.

Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel Matte - 77 Black


It comes in a plastic transparent pot with black plastic lid. In it is 5.5 grams of product and it costs around 16€. I got it on Beautybay, but it seems they are cleaning out their Inglot products and I don't think they'll be selling them anymore. 


This is a cream gel eyeliner, but it has quite a lot of glide to it, although I wouldn't say it's greasy. Most of gel eyeliners I've tried so far had harder texture to it, but it also meant they dried out quicker. Pigmentation is descent and there is color payoff, but I wouldn't say it blew my mind. I had to go over it a few times to get it super opaque. 


I believe it comes in many colorful shades, 33 in total, from mattes to more shimmery ones, but usually you'll find basic brown, taupe and black in most online stores that sell Inglot. 

77 is matte black color.


I've always heard that this is the blackest black gel eyeliner out there and that it stays in place like nobody's business. Well...that wasn't my experience. I was severely let down by this eyeliner. It creased and transferred so bad after just a couple of hours on my hooded eyelids that I was seriously contemplating, if I got a faulty one. Did they change the formula? Because this one has way too much movement. Even gel eyeliner from Maybelline stayed in place better. 

Inglot Duraline


It comes in a glass transparent bottle with a black top with a dropper attached to it that lets you push on top to get that one drop of product out. Dropper is very precise and you can in fact get out only one drop, which is already a lot, since you need the tinniest amount.

In it is 9 ml of product and it costs around 11€. I also bought it on BeautyBay while they still had it. 


It's sort of a mixing medium that can be used for multitude of purposes. Transparent liquid is mostly made of silicons that you can mix with any makeup product to prolong its wear and make it waterproof. It can also be used to restore liquid or cream consistency of a dried up eyeliner, brow product or mascara. 


My favorite way of using it is with loose pigments or powder eyeshadows to turn them into gel or liquid eyeliner. It gives you endless possibilities, since you can turn pretty much any eyeshadow color into a pigmented liquid liner. 

You need the tinniest amount possible to do that, because one drop goes a long way. I would prefer to use only half of drop to do one eyeliner on both eyes, but you can't drop out less than one drop. 

It definitely turns any powder product into a liquid or creamy consistency with just one drop. It also makes any makeup product waterproof and very long lasting.

If you apply Duraline directly on powder eyeshadow expect to see that silicon film stay on it, so either use it only in one corner or scrape it out on a plate to prevent eyeshadow from being ruined. 

I've also tried it with liquid products and it definitely made them last longer on the skin, but it can sometimes get a funky consistency, especially with shimmery or glitter formulas. I've also used it in a dried up mascara and it didn't make much difference, but I think mascara was mostly used up and not just dried up, so there wasn't much product left in the tube to be turned back into liquid. 

On the photos you can see it being used with Colourpop eyeshadow palette to create matte dark brown eyeliner. It applies like a dream. I also mixed it with Inglot AMC Pure Pigment Eye Shadow in Silver Dollar.

I put my high hopes into Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel, but it disappointed me so badly. I am seriously considering reselling it to someone else, because on my hooded eyes it's a disaster. It doesn't stay in place, transfers and looks horrible after just a few hours. However, their Duraline mixing medium is game changer. It's one of those products that any makeup artist or enthusiast will find so helpful. It turns any makeup product into a long lasting, vibrant and waterproof formula. I especially like it to create cream eyeliners and apply pigments and glitter on without a mess.
