When i got my driving license a few months back, I was horrified looking when I saw my photo. The intense black eye liner look which I loved made me look like a slightly milder version of the new Jenny Humphrey. This is how my hunt for the perfect brown liner started. I still love lining my eyes, but i figured i should cut back a little on the black. I saw this gel liner in the Oriflame catalogue in maybe February or March. It took my consultant two months after I’d ordered it to get it because it was apparently always out of stock. There was also an angled brush for sale with it, which was, I think, for about 99/-. Anyways, I thought I’d review it. So here goes.
Price: Rs. 590/- for 4g. I think I got it for 450/-.
Color: Chocolate Brown
P.S. Please ignore the eyebrows. Haven’t had time to get it done.
I love the packaging. It comes in a tiny pot with a screw-off gold lid. I think its really cute. I’m definitely going to reuse the pot once I’m finished with the liner.
I love the color. Its a nice matte brown.
The constituency is like a very thick cream. Even if I hold it upside down, no spilling.
It last for pretty much the whole day, but after maybe 5-6 hours, it does start fading a tiny little bit.
The whole application with the angled brush is kind of messy when compared to liquid liners. This wouldn’t be my go-to liner if I was in a hurry.
The liner is very sticky. So much of it sticks on to the brush that i have to clean it after every use. Also, a huge waste of product.
It dries pretty quickly, so I have to make sure I close the cap all the time. It did dry out for me because I leave it open all the time. But i melted it over boiling water. That seems to have solved the problem for now.
I think its a little too pricey for the quality.
The color pay-off isn’t very good.
The brush they sold with it isn’t very good. I use a regular eyeliner brush.
My Verdict: I think its a pretty decent liner. I’m not working yet, so I normally have a lot of time to get ready. But if you’re in a hurry, I wouldn’t recommend this.
