I was fooled by the title of this product – I read the gel eyeliner bit but didn’t se the liquid bit – so I was expecting a creamy pencil like Avon Supershock. Instead I got two skinny liquid liners – there were lots of shades to choose from, 2 browns, 3 blacks and 1 light pink for under the eye.
I picked BK3 and BR2 – warm brown and a charcoal blakc for something a bit different:
This liquid liner is quite interesting – it’s slim and works like a fountain pen – you removed the lid and click it into the bottom to get the ink flowing. You click the bottom to get the going.
The ink flow is pretty decent with this pen although because the liquid is thick you have to spread it out a little on the back of your hand first to make sure you don’t splodge too much on.
The nib is a firm brush. I prefer a felt tip end or a soft brush because a softer tip can be pulled across the lid easily. Anything too hard can sometimes ‘drag’ a bit and leave the liner a bit streaky.
The consistency of the liner is thick thick thick. It’s pigmented and gives a good level of coverage which sometimes, these liners in a pen don’t do.
This is BK3 which is more of a grey which shimmer:
BR2 is a rich warm brown with gold flecks. It’s quite nice I guess, for something a bit different.
I found this fiddly at first, because of the nib and the way the liner gathers but spread it a bit and it gives quite a pretty line and – it lasts. I mean, it really lasts. All day.
I accidently got some on my eyelid and spent the whole day trying to get it off (after it had dried) and it was impossible. This one will survive anything. It’s a good thing overall but leaves little margin for error.
On my eyelid:
I think this is a nice product overall although I wouldn’t say the application is the easiest, it’s one of the most long lasting liquid liners I’ve tried in a long, long time.
I bought mine from adambeauty.com, for about £8.
