Splurge or Steal: Gel Eyeliner


Back with another edition of SPLURGE or STEAL: this time it’s the battle of the gel eyeliners. Gel eyeliner rapidly gained popularity in the mainstream thanks to its impressive results in the cat-eye department, and its set-it-and-forget-it staying power. I’ve long used Bobbi Brown’s Long Wear gel eyeliner but these two drugstore renditions have me swooning. And I’ll never go back to the high-end stuff.

    I’m a little afraid to apply gel liner myself, but I love the way it looks. And since you’ve pointed out the less expensive brands I think I’ll try it, and it won’t hurt my pocketbook if it doesn’t work out.-Ash

    I love the splurge vs. steal posts! Thanks for researching for us :)I think you should do a video showing how to put on the gel eyeliner. I use a liquid eyeliner pen but am not sure how to use the gel eyeliner..

    I have the Smashbox Gel Liner compact with a variety of colors. They really disappoint, for the price I need better quality. I end up with a black line on my crease. Maybe the drugstore can help 🙂

    My cheap chic HG for gel liner is actually the ELF cream liner. I LOVE it!

    I am really bad with eyeliners, but this maybelline is the best! Whoever worked on this little brush is a genius! It is so easy to use.

    Picked up the L’Oreal liner based on your recommendation. Puts the MAC liner to shame. Thank you!!

    Great produce review. Just wondering how you clean the brushes after use.

    Glam Girl Naturals has great gel eyeliners! You can get them for $15, and they are great bc they are all natural, gluten-free, vegan, and cruelty-free. Plus they last FOREVER, which is a great deal for the money!
