Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner Pencil Review !

in Bobbi Brown, Eye Products, Eyeliner

bobbi-brown-gel-eyeliner-pencil1 You know how I wrote that post once about makeup products I wish were invented? If I had thought a bit more, one of them would have definitely been a Gel eyeliner in the form of a pencil. Its SUCH a great concept- I love the finish of a gel eyeliner but who wants to carry a pot and brush around everywhere huh?

So I tried these at the Bobbi Brown store the other day and they tried the black one on me and I fell in love with it. Then in my goodie bag, I found this brown Bobbi brown gel eyeliner pencil and have been playing with it ever since

First things first- when you swatch this, you will go WOW ! It looks gorgeous on the arm and definitely kind of like the finish of a gel eyeliner but somehow this brown one doesn’t translate into the gorgeousness on the eye. I have to go over it atleast 3-4 times on my eyelid to get the color payoff i want.

This wasn’t the case with the black one, which was amazing ! Apart from this it lasts long and the color itself is a gorgeous bronze with gold flecks which looks super stunning, but I think it will look best on lighter skintones honestly- it doesn’t show up as much on my lids.

Verdict: B

Price: Not yet released in India. Wil be launching soon

Recommendation: The gel eyeliner in pencil form (in black) seemed awesome at the store, this brown one is gorgeous too but I feel i need to swipe atleast 3-4 times on my lid to get the color to show up on me which is a bummer. Apart from that, lasts long and is smooth to apply but dont love the constant back and forth I need to go over a delicate area

This looks amazing in Swatch. Lovely. I have heard Loreal has also come up with gel liners in the form of a pen. Havent used any of these but it seems lovely from your review. I had been using my maybelline gel liner since ages as it is also very inexpensive and has great staying power. I have also reviewed it on my blog. :)

I’m too lazy to use my gel liner because of the brush. Definitely getting this in black if I ever get near a store! :)

Yes they do, and second the finish is different. Not very visible in this brown one, but when you see the black one yll know what im talking about. The finish is very intense and non pencil like

Although the colours looks different, won’t swiping it 3-4 times hurt the lids?

Nice! but swiping 3-4 times doesn’t sound very impresseive for a gel eyeliner pencil.. What do others say about this?

The reason I like the gel liner esp the maybelline one is because you can create the dramatic effect using the brush. But yes any product that offers the same texture without the need to carry the brush would be great revolution. Not sure if this can offer that. But would like to check out the black one, based on your recommendation :)
