I picked up these two Gel Eyeliners the second time I went on an Essence Cosmetics binge for $5.95AUD each, I wanted the black version as well but there was none left. While at POBM us beauty bloggers were having a very in depth and important discussion about eyeliner and Suzanne from Don’t They Know Who I Am? mentioned that Essence gel liners have a lovely smooth texture when you dip your brush into the pot and she’s absolutely right. These would have to be the smoothest and creamiest gel liners I’ve ever used and I’ve tried a few different gel liners – L’Oreal Hip, Maybelline Eyestudio and Bobbi Brown Gel Liner but these Essence ones are so much smoother to apply. I’m going to keep stalking my local Target until I can get the black version!
I can never resist the urge to stick my brush or finger into brand new cosmetics before photographing them – bad beauty blogger!
- London Baby – is a beautiful chocolate brown and when I swatched it I was amazed to find that it has shimmer to it, stunning.
- Berlin Rocks – is a deep dark purple which also has a stunning shimmer to it.
These gel liners are incredibly long lasting and waterproof, the inclusion of the shimmer adds such a gorgeous extra dimension to these. I love brown eyeliners but I tend to prefer ones with a little bit of shimmer to them for something different.
