Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner

This might amaze you but I have hardly ever tried anything from Bobbi Brown!

In fact the only things I have tried are her under-eye moisturizer (which is great) and her pink concealer (which is my go-to pink concealer). Other than that, I am a Bobbi Brown “virgin”.

I was at Bloomingdales getting my brows done at the Benefit Brow Bar, and while I was there I wanted to try out the Clinique Gel Liner I have heard so much about. Well they were out of the black and I happened to tweet that. A couple people tweeted back and mentioned I should try the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliners so I headed over to the counter and took a peek.

I was kind of mesmerized by what I saw. There were a lot of really nice looking shades and some other items I was really interested in. I settled for just getting two of the liners though in Black Ink and Denim Ink. For now. 😉

Black Ink, Denim Ink

Black Ink is a jet black color.
Denim Ink is a navy blue with light blue shimmer.

Both felt super creamy and had really nice pigmentation. I have seen blacks deeper than this one, but it definitely does the job and is pretty black! Denim Ink is a serious stunner though, I love this color.

As far as application, it’s easy-as-pie. They are creamy and glide on smoothly with no tugging so no issues there. They set quickly (they are waterproof) but not so fast you don’t have a couple minutes to play around and get them right.

One thing I did notice when I did a slight wing the first time with the black was it did smudge a little on the outer corner. Because I have hooded eyelids sometimes a little liner goes underneath my eyelid and if it’s not completely dry, it may smudge.  The next time I used it that didn’t happen because I let it set for a minute before moving my eyeballs around, if you know what I mean. 😉

Availability: Bobbi Brown, Sephora, department stores.

Pricing: $21.00 for 0.1 oz.
