I saw this new Rimmel waterproof gel eyeliner at CVS, and decided I would give it a try. I never usually use gel eyeliner, only liquid, so this was fairly new for me to get used to applying with a brush. I have actually wanted to switch to gel liner for a while, since the liquid liner from MAC was not cutting it. Here is my review and a swatch.
Here is more about the waterproof gel eyeliner:
Subtle or bold eyeliner look that lasts all day! Long lasting gel formula with Intense colour pigments. Applies easily with built-in brush applicator Waterproof formula stays in place all day- won’t budge or smudge!
The application for me was difficult with the brush that it came with. I ended up using a liner brush that I had and it made it easier to use. The gel liner itself was not what I expected. As I was applying it, the pigmentation seemed dull and not a dark black that I was looking for. Every time I tried to make it darker, the liner would come off and not stay put. I did try this a couple of times and I just couldn't get it how I wanted it to look. I ended up wearing it, but under my usual eyeliner. It made my eyeliner stay put all day and waterproof which was good. But I don't want to have to layer eyeliners all the time.
I'm sure it has to do with the fact that I'm such a novice when it comes to gel eyeliner. I just couldn't seem to get it to work for me. Anyone have some gel eyeliner tips? I don't want it to go to waste, so I'm going to keep it and see how it goes. I ended up paying $6.99 for this at CVS. Do I regret buying it? For me, yes. If you are a gel eyeliner lover, you might like this and it will probably work better for you than it did for me.
Have you tried this? Let me know what you think!
