PostSubject: OH WOW Gel Liner   Thu Jun 18, 2009 5:01 pm

I have fallen in love. Today I bought a (cheap) gel liner because I have been very intrigued since everyone seems to use it on here and wanted to play with it.

OH WOW.

I am in love. For one thing, I can use my own brush without the mess and fuss, It glides on (no matter what the quality I imagine) because of the formula, and is SO easy to work with.

It DOESN'T FLAKE.

Mine is a cheap brand so it has started to fade after a few hours, but I didn't set it with black shadow as I normally would.

It is much easier to apply the ticks and flicks, there are no splodges, and if i'm feeling a bit shaky it doesn't matter. It is easy to wipe off if i make a mistake and I find doing under the lower lashes much easier and more even because liquid liner always looks a bit wobbly for me.

I highly recommend giving it a go! I found a completely inexpensive one for like £4 if you don't particularly want to pay £$£$£$£$ for Bobbi or MAC.

I think the texture of a gel liner is so much nicer than liquid liner, and like you said way easier to with w00t!

It's literally just a cheap version of all gel liners. Actually I don't know if other high street bands have jumped on the gel liner wagon yet. This however was some discount brand called W7Trends.

I have a cheap makeup outlet near me and this brand is alright actually, I mean for practice or if you have NO budget. Some of the mono shadows which are actually quite good with the right base and application are £2,and i got a really smooth 'gel pencil' for £1.

Beggars can't be choosers, eh?

Anyway i'd recommend giving it a go. If anything it gives you an idea on whether you would enjoy it as much as liquid or indeed pencil. Liquid liner just stresses me out so much.

Oh although i recently learnt that if i lean all my weight forward, so that i am in effectleaning on my front and then apply, there are no shaky hands to deal with AT ALL. Resting an elbow on the table or leaning my little finger against my cheek are good tips, however not quite heavy duty enough Razz

Just thought i'd add that doing a search for the acclaimed Bobbi Brown Gel Liner lead to bids of up to £25 for ONE very tiny pot of product, that's without adding postage and packing. In fact the P&P cost the same as my cheapo version..

Hey I used this at the weekend, and though I still love it (and it's price of course) it doesn't have the same lasting power as the liquid liner I also have. It is prone to smudging especially when moistened by sweat on the eyelid.

What I did was use the gel liner (and it's ease with gliding on etc) as a template, then after waiting for it to dry for a bit applied a layer of liquid on top. You'd be surprised how much easier it is to put on liquid when there's already a shape on the eye.

All the same give it a go!
