Affordable, Longlasting Gel Eyeliner | First Impressions



Hey guys!!
I have been on the lookout for a long lasting eyeliner, I have tried brands from Mac to Collection 2000. For some reason the eyeliners tend to smudge off whilst I apply or halfway throughout the day, which is awful!  I have heard great things recently about the brand sold at Boots called Seventeen and so took the chance to try out their gel eyeliner.

As you can see this post is a "first impression" as I wanted to share this product asap yet I haven't used it for long enough for a review (can you tell I'm honest to my readers?!) ;). I have applied the eyeliner with a Mac 266 line define brush to make out a winged liner look. I can tell you the formulation was really smooth compared to the Maybelline and Loreal gel eyeliners I've used. Very impressed! I tried a line of the product on the back of my hand before applying the eyeliner to my eyes and let me tell you it took two makeup remover pads to take the stuff off. It literally didn't want to budge.

For me a eyeliner needs to include 3 things. A deep black line, smooth consistency and long to be wearing. This product to seems to have all 3!!
 I recommend you try this if you're on a budget, or not :)


Love Laura xxx

  3. I'm a liquid liner girl, but I've been trying to find a gel liner that works for me. I hate gel liners that aren't a true deep black or ones that smudge into my crease. This one sounds like a good product! Thanks for the first impression. I'll keep this in mind.

  5. I normally swear by my Bobbi Brown gel liner but this looks worth a try as a budget version :)

  8. Gel eyeliners scare me a little. I'm only just getting to grips with liquid liners.

  12. I love the idea of these eyeliners but using a brush for it would be a disaster for me. I can barely line my eyes with my nibbed liner without getting it everywhere!!

    I love eyeliners - but next time I go to a beauty shop I'm afraid my purse is limited only to mascara! Mines run out and I'm looking for a new one! Any suggestions?
