I think after lipsticks eyeliners are the ones which has multiple forms in them and my personal favorite is Gel eyeliners as I have super oily lids. I have already used Maybelline’s Gel eyeliner few years back and went on trying other things meanwhile. Now that I saw offer on Myntra I wanted to grab it as it was available in 35% offer. Let’s see how it worked for me.
Price: Rs.500/- for 2.5 gms (Always look for discounts and get this one)
Shelf Life: 3 Years from the date of Manufacture
•Only our oil-free formula can hold highly concentrated pigments in a clear gel base.
•So color is more intense and lines resist wear for hours.
•Smudge-proof and Water-proof.
•The most intense line for lasting drama.
Ingredients: Trimethylsiloxysilicate, cyclopentasiloxane, isododecane, cyclohexasiloxane, ceresin, caprylyl methicone, silica silylate, lauroyl lysine, disteardimonium hectorite, propylene carbonate, hydroxyapatite, triethoxycaprylylsilane, [+/- may contain: CI 77499 / iron oxides, CI 77007 / ultramarines, CI 77266 / Black 2].
Packaging: It comes in a strong Paper case where this beautiful product is securely packed. It comes in a glossy black circular pot packaging with transparent bottom. It also comes with an applicator which has a transparent cap to protect it. Outer Packaging has all the vital details and bottom of the product bears the Product name and shade
My take on the product: To talk about the Texture in first place, I would say it has really a soft and creamy consistency which glides on easily on your lids. I have tried it on my aunt whose eyelids are full of wrinkles still I was impressed with the product texture and applicator as it worked effortlessly. I have not experienced any tingling sensation with the product to which I give a big Thumbs up.
Next to say about the Pigmentation part, it is one of those jet-black Pigmented eyeliners that is available in the market. It Provides a Matte finish and looks beautiful on the lids, also you need to work with small strokes and it just cannot be applied in one single stroke.
It lasts really long in which I would say my maximum wear time with this product was around 10-11 hours which is really impressive. You definitely need to use an oil based Make up removed or Micellar water to remove this product, but I go with good old Coconut oil and it completely removes the product.
I can strongly say that this product is completely Smudge free and water resistant. But one thing is that you have to be very careful while applying the product since it dries pretty fast and also gives matte finish, and it would be difficult to make any changes Post application.
I say “Yay” because:
- Super Pigmentation.
- Water resistant.
- Smooth application.
- Stays for a long time.
- High end packaging.
- Travel friendly.
- Matte black finish.
- Comfortable to use.
- Additional applicator.
I say “Nay” because:
- Removing might be difficult and might oil based make up remover.
- Dries bit fast and should be little careful while applying.
