How have you all been lately? I don't know about you but I have been really enjoying this lovely weather we have been having (finally!).
Anyway, I have wanted a gel liner for some time now and when I saw MUA's new gel liner half price in the sale I though it was the perfect opportunity to try one.
The liner retails at £3 and comes in 4 shades - Underground (Black the one I have), Fairground (a dark grey), On Move (brown) and Tribe (Bright blue).
The way its designed in my opinion is quite clever, there is a little pot at the bottom which is where the liner is and in the lid is the brush. (I have to be honest and say it took me ages to find the brush) just above the white mark on the lid is where the brush comes out and it clips back in to make a longer handle, which is ideal as you don't need to carry and extra brush with you for on the go. The packaging is a perfect size for popping in your bag, its small enough not to get in the way but big enough to not get lost.
The brush itself is small, flat and round at the top which is good as you can get good precision with it.
The liner is a sort of a creamy consistency and goes on fairly easy, to get a full pigmented colour I go over it twice.
It last all day with only minimal fading on the wing, which is much better than some more expensive liners I have tried, it doesn't transfer to the top of my lid but the only thing I did notice is I kept getting little dry lumps appearing but I think that's because its dried on the brush because haven't yet washed it after using it everyday for almost a month (bad of me I know!)
|Excuse the puffy eyes I have going on at the moment!|
Overall I really like this eye liner, it has a nice consistency, the packaging is a good size and design and the brush it pretty decent too. You can buy this from Superdrug or MUA website for £3. I like it for a first gel liner but I want to try more higher end brands as well so probably wont repurchase this for the reason of wanting to try other brands.
Have you tried this before? what do you think of gel liners in general?
