If there's one thing I always dread doing, it's eyeliner. I am so clumsy when it comes to lining my eyes, the line is always too thick and it never looks the way I would like it to. Let alone winged eyeliner, I simply can't do it no matter how many times I've tried. I always used liquid eyeliner in a pen, but a lot of people told me that gel eyeliner in a little jar is so much easier to apply. Easier??? Oh hell yes, I had to try that out!
The gel eyeliner by Maybelline comes in a cute little matte jar and metal lid. It also comes with a small brush that's actually really amazing.
This is a close-up of the brush this gel eyeliner comes with. At first I thought it would be useless and crappy, since most of the brushes you get with makeup are pretty much useless, but it's actually really nice. You can create a super thin line with this brush, and it doesn't feel cheap at all.
The liner itself is very black. The consistency is a gel-formula, and I like the way it glides onto my eyes, so effortlessly and smooth. The black is quite intense, and stays that way throughout the entire day. I never once had to do any touch-ups whatsoever, so it's definitely long-wearing! I can't believe it took me so long to try out a gel eyeliner and I'm never going back to using regular eyeliner in a pen-form.
I love how this gel liner, together with the brush it comes with, makes it so easy to line my eyes. I used to hate applying eyeliner and now I don't anymore. I love the formula of this Maybelline one, the quality is superb, super long-lasting and intense. Maybelline Lasting Drama gel eyeliner is available at Kruidvat for €12,49.
