Hello Beauties! Not too long ago i shared with you everything that i picked up at IMATS 2012 and one of the things i got the most questions about were the 3 gel liners that i bought at Inglot. So in the meantime i have had a month to play with these lil babies so i can give you my honest thoughts on this product.
I ended up buying the 3 colours that i would get the most use out of: a black (77),an eggplant purple (74) and a chocolate brown (90)
To give you a bit of an idea of the liner's themselves there are 20 colours to choose from,all of which are matte.I love their range of colours,you dont often see this variety with gel liners.They are $25 each although i got 30% off mine,and the jars are actually quite large too (5.5g)
What Inglot say: High intensity pigments provide ideal coverage and rich colors after just one application. The Creamy and delicate long lasting formula dries in 60 seconds to a water, smudge and crease proof finish.
My thoughts: Initially i bought these to use as a base for eyeshadow,and whilst i do like using them for that and i do think they are a beautiful base they literally dry with the blink of you're eye.Seriously. You have to work FAST.I have really been enjoying using these as eyeliner,i especially like the purple for the water line.
The best quality these have is the formula. I have never used such a soft and buttery gel liner as these and for that quality alone i would re-purchase these in a heartbeat.They are so easy to apply,the colour is rich so only one brush stroke is needed and what shocked me most was how long these stayed for.They didnt crease,fade or wear off at all. Because these wore so well this peaked my interest and decided a little experiment was in order.
The top picture was done at 7 in the morning while i was doing my makeup,then i put a long sleeve top on over it of the day.Bear in mind i am a mum and a hair dresser so my hands/arms are in water alot .
The bottom picture was taken 12 hours later at 7pm.Now i think this is bloody impressive!
Same again with these pictures the only difference is these were done with an eyeliner brush and the others were with my finger.The faint mark in the bottom picture next to the black is a swatch of my other blacker-than-black eyeliner "Perversion"by Urban Decay. I wanted to see how the two compared,thy actaully looked identical when first swatched and as the day wore on so did "perversion".....
I would without hesitation buy this product again i loved everything about it i am just kicking myself for not buying the white and the teal colours i also had my eye on at the time!
I hope you found this useful and if you have any other questions please feel free to ask :)
