Hello my pretties!
I've finally finished my second year of university! I still feel like I'm in first year. Doesn't time flies?! Anyway, enough with my chit-chat. Today I have a little review of this little pot of Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gear Eyeliner. I have been craving this for the longest time before I finally bought it. So, you are probably wondering about what I think about this product right? right?! If not, you are in the wrong page here...
No going to lie, the first time I tried this, I was left feeling rather disappointed. (You might know this if you follow my Instagram @wanischaaa, okay, I've done my bit of self-promoting). This was because I was expecting this gel liner to live up to its name of Black Ink. So, pretty much I was hoping for it to be just like Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner but a little less smudgey. Turns out Bobbi Brown version has a little bit more of a demure natural grey-ish black when swatched.

Now, for the application. I find the gel liner to have quite creamy texture however, it doesn't go on as opaque as I had hope. Nonetheless, this means that I can use this liner to create softer look as well as dramatic look by layering. Even though, this gel liner has creamy texture, it also dries fairly quickly too, so no more having to sit for there for like 2 minutes waiting for your eyeliner to dry so it doesn't smudge when you blink, I used to have to do that. I've tried using this liner on my mum and I really have to say that it looks amazing! It applies smoothly and it doesn't make her look overdone, just very naturally pretty (she will be so chuff when she reads this). So, I guess this works with a more mature skin as well.
