I have been cursed with oily skin and eyelids which no makeup product is ever going to hold up all day against no matter how much Companies insist they will. Certain products can however, at least put up a bit of a fight and put off smudging and fading for a few hours longer. These liners definitely fall into that category.
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Créme Colour (£18.00)
A perfect example of what a gel liner should be. These types of eyeliners are brilliant for building up the thickness and intensity of your liner. They take a bit longer to apply than pencil or liquid but blend beautifully into skin without leaving a harsh edge which is ideal for creating a smokey eye.
Waterproof Créme Colour is yet another 'little goes a long way' product from Anastasia Beverly Hills as should be expected from all premium brands. The staying power of this liner is amazing it it even remains on my waterline for about 4 hours before I need to touch up. It dries quickly when applied and with a matte finish.
BENEFIT Magic Ink (£15.50)
I love liquid liners for a quick and easy everyday look. They are the best for winged eyeliner and creating sharp and precise looks.
I received Magic Ink as a birthday present last year and by the time my birthday came this year I realised it had almost ran out and it was time for a repurchase. Bearing in mind that I used this liner almost everyday for daytime use it lasted a little over a year which really surprised me especially since it was such a small pot! On top of being good value for money, Magic Ink dries quickly once applied and applies with great precision due to its thin brush and extra long lid the brush it attached to. It dries with a slight glossy look to it and is as pigmented as a liner can really get.
Despite my love for these liners I still adore trying new products from different brands and no doubt will try something new at some point. I'd love to hear other people favourites and what they use!
