So, I finished my first gel liner! And well, since I loved it so much I might as well share a short reveiw about it. It's the plain old L'Oreal Super Gel Liner. It was bought way back in 2013 (I think..) and it finally finally got over!
The glass jar pot with the black cap looks super nice (the newer ones have a gold cap which looks fab too). The liner comes with a brush, it isn't angled but does a good job of applying. It does take a little bit of practice to get used to it though (especially if you very used to using liquid liners with thin brushes, like me).
The liner itself is very creamy, well pigmented, glides on smoothly without any tug. It gives an intense black matte color in just one swipe. Dries quickly & sets to a smudge free waterproof finish. The best part is the staying power. It stays on for 16-18 hours easily (there have been times when I have worn this overnight..yes I got lazy and didn't remove my makeup) and it was intact the morning after, without any smudges.
I tend to use it on my waterline as a kajal, more than an eyeliner and it has never caused any irritation.
Also, I store my gel liner upside down... I remember reading somewhere that this helps the liner not to dry out. And I guess it works, since mine was running for about 3 years now!
Price : 800 INR for 2.8g
Yes, it is priced higher than the Maybelline one (which is nice and works well too). So, now that this one is over, I will try out the Maybelline one. Shall update you if I find any differences.
But overall, the L'Oreal Gel Liner was really good and I would recommend you to check it out if you are on the hunt for a good gel liner.
