Hi everyone, how are you all? I’m recently on fire with my blog and loving it i just cant say enough and have so many things to write about.. don’t you just love when that happens? i know i do :) Anyways after a full morning of eating the new Maltesers Teasers bar (seriously how good are they?) I thought i would get back down to my blogging business and tell you how much i have been loving this little drug store gel eyeliner!
The Maybelline gel eyeliner has often been compared as a dupe to the much more higher end Bobbi Brown maybe even MAC gel eyeliners! now i haven’t tried any of these two so i couldn’t really compare the two but i can say i don’t think i will be in a rush to go out and try them when this little gem is so wonderful and comes in at half the price!
First things first the packaging, all bloggers love their packaging! and Maybelline didn’t disappoint with the little frosted glass pot which this eyeliner sits in .. its just beautiful, it certainly does earn its spot on your dressing table! (well it would on mine if i had one!) plus it comes with a handy little brush for you to apply the liner with which is actually good! it’s not to thick and bulky its just right and gets the job done :)
Now on to the liner itself, i don’t tend to wear eyeliner on my top lash very often i like to keep my make up to a minimal so only tend to wear it on days when I’m feeling jazzy with my make up or when I’m going somewhere special because to be honest I’m not very good at it all (trust me I’m not!) although since discovering the L’Oreal super liner review here i have become better at all that’s why I’ve moved on to dipping my toe into the whole gel liner side and i am getting better (i think so anyway, apart from the odd hiccup but hey ho I’m still getting the hang of it!) The formula is so easy to work with and easy to control plus a little goes a long way the first time i used the gel liner i put a huge dollop on my brush big no no! the smallest amount yes one dab will go on to finish your whole eye! As for the 24 hour lasting claims, I’m not too sure of anyone who would be willing to test that out.. i know i wouldn’t want to sit in my make up for a whole 24 hours! but it sure did last a really long time without budging or smudging so I’m not complaining it lasted plenty long enough for me!
The colour i choose was intense black, and it does live up to that.. although for those of you who aren’t too keen on the whole black eyeliner look they do offer a brown version which i think i may be going to get myself soon! I really would like to try a brown eyeliner!
Overall I’m really impressed this gel liner is super easy to apply and is definitely good for beginners like me! plus it will last a super long time.. i definitely think drugstore have won battle of the eyeliners!
I bought mine from Tesco for £7.99 but i do hear that boots have their cheeky 3 for 2 offer on again? :)
What do you think of gel liners?
