I recently won this eyeliner from a Saks Twitter giveaway, and boy am I glad I did! This is not something that I would've bought for myself, since I have SO many eyeliners and wear them so rarely.The eyeliner itself comes in a small glass jar - I know that I have to be sure to screw the lid on tightly, since I don't want this to dry up prematurely! (Oh, how sad would that be?!) I got the shade Black Ink, which is a deep, opaque black. Seriously, if you've been looking for dark dark blacks, this is definitely one of them! Check out these swatches! Once the eyeliner sets, in about 30 seconds or so, it really is budgeproof. I tried to wipe these arm swatches with a tissue a few minutes after application, and it didn't smudge one bit. In the shower, I had to do some incredibly vigorous scrubbing with soap before these even came off.
I've been wearing the liner mainly for tightlining, which I love. Filled in between my lashes, this just makes them look fuller and more defined. Not to mention that the eyeliner doesn't move one bit! I'm sad to say that I wore this overnight twice, and even while sleeping and rubbing my eyes, the eyeliner barely budged. (I know, I know, I'm so terrible at cleansing!!) Not to worry though, this eyeliner does remove easily with a proper makeup remover and technique.
So, it is safe to say that I'm in love with this eyeliner! I wish I had tried it sooner, but I guess I didn't want to go through the "hassle" of a gel liner. Yes, using a brush can be a bit time consuming, especially if it is new, but seriously, this liner is definitely worth a bit of extra time in your routine.
Have you tried this or any other shade of gel liner from Bobbi Brown? What are your favorite eyeliner options? I'd love to know! :)
