A Good Eye Test!

Apologies there haven't been many posts recently...I've been ill but back on form now!!

I was lucky enough to get the new Maybelline Gel Eyeliner in a goody bag recently. As soon as I saw it my heart sank. I've only ever been able to use pencils, as my hand-to-eye co-ordination just won't function with liquid eyeliner. Instead of a beautiful, precise line I end up either blinding myself or covered in splodges of black all over my eyes!!

BUT Maybelline's Gel Eyeliner worked like a dream! It comes with a brush so it is quite similar to using a pencil. My unsteady hands could cope! The dinky little pot of eyeliner is so cute; I had the blackest black which is my fave!

The benefit of using a gel over pencil or liquid is the intensity of the colour. The black was incredibly, gorgeously black. Brilliant for a night out. Maybelline say that the gel also means it resists wear for 24 hours and is waterproof and smudgeproof. I'm not sure about that, but it lasted for a night!

I wore it for the first time for a big Friday night out. At the moment I'm having issues with my eyes, as my eyelash extensions are quite uneven at the moment, so some lashes need mascara and others don't! Nightmare. Anyway, this eyeliner was brilliant. Striking, easy to use, and absolutely gorgeous I am completely sold on gel eyeliners.

Get yours quick!
