If you follow me on Twitter (@arumlilea) you will know that I’m a huge Jaclyn Hill fan. Needless to say, I find myself buying half the products she uses in her videos. One such item is the Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Eyeliner. I have a love/hate relationship with gel liners because I really battle to find one that I like. When I do, I stick with it through thick and thin. Up until this point in time I haven’t found a single gel liner that I’ve fallen head over heels for, but finally the hunt is over!
The Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner comes in this gorgeous, dinky little paint pot and the moment I pulled it out of its packaging I knew I was going to fall in love with it. The pot of gel liner is also sold with a gel liner brush which I have been quite happy with which is also surprising as I never seem to find a brush that I’m 100% impressed by either.
I have worn it every single day since I bought it and it is still impressing me. I’m so excited to have finally found a gel liner that does smudge all over my eyelid an hour after I’ve applied it. Once it is applied, it sets and it doesn’t move until I wash it off.
I bought this gel liner in the shade Black Chrome and while it is black, it’s not the jet-black that I’m accustomed to and it does have a teeny tiny amount of shimmer in it too which I have never experienced before. I know that there is another shade of black in this eyeliner so I will probably try that out next time I need a new gel liner but this one definitely does the job wonderfully.
What’s my verdict? Brilliant packaging, smooth application and long lasting wear. This product deserves a 5/5 because it’s pretty perfect. Thanks Jaclyn!
