I have seen a few of these gel eyeliners on the market so thought I would give it a go to see what it’s all about. I chose the Maybelline version because there was a special offer on when I bought the Express Volume Cat Eyes mascara.
The pot itself is quite small but a little goes a long way. It comes with a brush for the application, it is tapered at the end so that you can apply a small amount or angle it differently to get a thicker line. Ideally it would come with a thinner brush so that it can be built up – but this brush is a good midway option and also good for the bold looks there are at the moment
I am not sure why it is called a gel, it has more of a cream texture rather than a gel (a gel makes me think that this would be a light eyeliner but that is not the case as it produces a strong look)
It is very easy to apply – infact a bit too easy that you could over apply! But it definitely is a good tool to get more creative with your eyeliner! I have always used liquid eyeliners in the past but I think for me that it will now be replaced with this one – thumbs up.
