Tony Moly Backstage Gel Liner in #8 Khaki Black Quick Review and Swatch

Monday, January 27, 2014

Tony Moly Backstage Gel Liner is one of the best selling gel liners in Korea. They are super affordable, great quality, and have a wide selection of wearable colors (13 colors to be exact). So far, I've tried #2 Brown, #3 Pearl Brown, #8 Khaki Black and #13 Choco Brown. If you haven't read it yet, please check out my indepth review on #3 Pearl Brown. It's still my favorite color among the Tony Moly Backstage Gel Liners.

Today, I'll be swatching for you #8 Khaki Black. I picked it up because I was looking for something different from the typical black and brown liners. I already own dozens of brown eyeliners in various different tones and shades, so I wanted to try something different. I  kid you not. Korea is full of makeup brands with amazing quality cosmetics that tempt you to spend your money. I have had a shopping addiction since I started to get into makeup but this makes my spending habit100x worst.

As with all of the Tony Moly Backstage Gel Liners, This comes with a soft, useable brush that you can take out of the lid.

Khaki Black is a goldeny olive green. On the eyes, it's very similar to a more subtle black. It has golden shimmers but they're not very noticeable unless someone is extremely close. This is a great alternative to brown if you are looking for a defined eye look but want to try something other than brown.

The texture of this gel liner is creamy as always. It's not watery at all but glides across my lids very easily. It very easy to apply and doesn't make a mess at all. This liner doesn't smudge on me at all and wears for a long time without giving me raccoon eyes.

What I Love About It:
- very subtle and defining
- creamy and solid
- affordable
- long lasting
- smudge proof

What I Don't Love About It:
- nothing

Please check out my first review on Tony Moly Backstage Gel Liner in #3 Pearl Brown for a more indepth review.


  1. I looooooved the Backstage Gel Liners~ because they're the only gel liners that won't smudge on me. But I had a hard time with the packaging and detachable brush, very inconvenient to travel with. :(

    1. I usually pack the brush separately when I go traveling. I'm willing over look any inconveniences of the packaging due to the amazing quality of these bad boys ^^

  2. Great review! I love this gel liner too. I got it in No2 Brown and it is the perfect brown. Dark enough to define my eyes. Oh and please check out my blog if you have time. ^^

    1. I'm glad you like this eyeliner too. Definitely check out the other colors as well. They have such an amazing selection. Thank you for stopping by my blog and I will definitely check out yours ^^
