Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner Trialled and Tested; Reviewed.

Here's a quick review of a product that i've wanted for some time now. I used to have the Clinique gel liner, because I was told by the sales assistant that it's amazing as it stays on for hours. I bought it, used it far too much, then stopped using it because I was young and it dried up. Now i'm older, and more experienced with make up (so I like to believe) I thought i'd give gel liners another go.

I like the case, it's really sturdy glass.
The brush is really good, perfect for getting the line perfectly straight.

As you can see, the colour is nice and dark, that's only from one tiny little brush stroke of it.

It's a nice matte black but has a slight sheen to it, this makes it glide really nicely on the eye lid.

As you can see on the left hand eye, the line is literally perfectly straight and dark enough, from using literally the tiniest bit of the liner.

Here I made it abit thicker. When I closed my eye, it nicely printed onto my bottom lid, which meant that I didn't even have to put any on there, it happened like magic.

As you can see, I put far too much on the right hand eye here, but I hope this photo shows you what it can look like. It doesn't look too bad when a lot is applied. Also, you can see that it leaked onto my bottom lid, which I actually like as it looks like It's meant to be there.

Here is my full face, as you can see my eyes look defined.
I'm wearing Make Up Forever's HD foundation with the Bobbi Brown liner.

What they say; This award-winning liner gives you the look of liquid liner with the ease & feel of a gel formula. Long-wearing, water-resistant colour glides on and let's you get it just right before it dries - then stays without a smear or crease.'

And I completely agree with this. It doesn't crease or go greasy like some do, and it is so easy to apply, it literally takes a second. I think it will last forever as you use the tiniest bit on every application, but can make it darker for a night out which means the product is highly versatile. I put it on this morning at 9AM, it is now the evening, and it hasn't moved. 5/5!

Have you used this before? What eye liner would you reccommend?
