You know most of us went though that awkward 'emo' phase in our teens which included some fashion disasters? I did and one of the only pieces of make up I'd wear was eyeliner. Not applied well though - i have to add. So, after using eyeliner for years i always thought i was a kind of expert. I've always stuck to liquid or pencil as i always thought these were the easier. Gel eyeliner always seemed like it would be a lot of hassle so i never tried it until recently. I was pleasantly surprised to find that gel eyeliner wasn't difficult to apply.
Whilst browsing Boots i ended up adding the Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Eyeliner to my basket so i could finally try out gel eyeliner. I wear eyeliner most days - and i do love a bit of a cat flick too so i need my eyeliner to be easy to use and last all day. Thankfully, this does last all day really well. The colour is a very, very dark black which doesn't fade throughout the day or smudge. I found it easy to apply - though i might end up buying my own brush to apply this with.
It was easy to apply and you only need a tiny little bit as the colour is so pigmented. You don't need a super steady hand unlike with liquid. I apply my make up at 7am and don't get home until about 6 or 7pm every night. This is always the best part of my make up come home time. I'm really pleased with this and haven't reached for any other eyeliners since i bought this!
