It’s another one of those cases where I’m fighting my urges to splash out on high end beauty products and carry on with my Back to Boots plan. I’ve been using Bobbi Brown’s gel liner for a while but the colour ‘Sepia Ink’ doesn’t quite cut it for the days I want a sleek black cat eye. In all fairness, I picked up the Lasting Drama Gel eyeliner on a 3 for 2 offer so I didn’t have to feel guilty buying a new product that wasn’t a necessity.
I have to give it to Maybelline here, their formula is just as good as the Bobbi Brown liner but without the £18 price tag. It’s long lasting, ultra black and even comes with a pretty decent applicator that allows you to create a really on point thin line. I usually struggle with liquid and gel eyeliners causing my eyelides to sting (does anyobdy else get this?) but this one applies pain free. At just £7.99, it’s a great little product if you’re trying to stick to lower cost products without compromising on quality.
