My sister knows my fondness for eyeliners very well so wherever she shops, an eyeliner in any kind of form is a staple item for me as a gift. <3
So, today I would be sharing one such eyeliner that she got for me, which is in a gel form, and it is the Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in the shade Chocolate Shimmer Ink 13 from the house of Bobbi Brown.
About Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner:
This award-winning liner gives you the look of liquid liner with the ease & feel of a gel formula. Long-wearing, water-resistant color glides on & lets you get it just right before it dries – then stays without a smear or crease.
To apply: Dip tip of Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush (coat both sides of brush head). Wipe off excess before applying to eye. Work quickly as product becomes transfer-resistant once dry. To remove, use Instant Long-Wear Makeup Remover.
Price: US$24.00 (0.1 oz./ 3 g)
My take on Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner Chocolate Shimmer Ink 13:
It comes in a little transparent jar with a circular black lid. The packaging is pretty cute but since it is made of glass, it can break easily if dropped, so one needs to be quite careful with it. Chocolate shimmer ink 13 is a dark red brown color as described by Bobbi Brown. It is more of a shiny taupe brown on me though. It contains a light amount of glitters that is not very visible so it can be used for daily wear. Because of the minute shimmers, there is no grittiness or tugging at all. It is crease and transfer resistant as well. I use a makeup remover because of the waterproof formula. The consistency is smooth and glides well over the eyelids and is very easy to apply.
There are twelve more different shades available in this range. The only downfall is that an applicator brush is not included with it. So one needs to invest in a good brush for a clean precise application.
Pigmentation: It offers a good color payoff though not superbly intense on my eyelids since it is a brown shade.
Staying power: It stays put on me for an entire day because of the matte texture. I live in a highly humid city so this gel liner is a great alternative for pencil liners, which tends to smudge a lot. For removal, a good makeup remover is recommended.
