I’m about to make a very bold statement, so brace yourselves. Ready? Ok, here goes: this is my new favorite gel liner. Ya, I said it.
This came in the mail yesterday along with a few other goodies I got from the Pixi/POP beauty sale on Hautelook and to be honest I wasn’t expecting to like it this much since it was kind of an impulse buy. Regularly priced at $18.00, these were going for $4.50 so I picked up two thinking it would make a nice base for my black smokey eye if nothing else. Then I tried it out this morning and was pretty much blown away by the sheer awesomeness of this product.
I was initially impressed by the gel’s intense color pay-off and rich, velvety texture. It glides across the eyelids easily and the color is vibrant with just one sweep. Even more impressive is the staying power. I did my makeup at 7:30am – it’s now 12:06am and my eyeliner is right where I put it this morning. I’m pretty shocked considering it’s allergy season and my eyes were watering pretty much all day.
Though I prefer using my Sonia Kashuk angled brush for gel liner application, the little brush included in the brush is actually not bad. As you can see above, it’s flat shape makes it easy to do a fine line or a thick one.
Now that I’m completely in love with this stuff, I can’t wait for it to be back on Hautelook so I can stock up again. Thank the good lawd I was smart enough to buy two this time!
Final Verdict: LOVE IT
