7 Reasons you should Invest in a Gel Eyeliner

gel liners

I love gel liners. I just have one black liquid liner , which I rarely use. I thought I’d give you some reasons why gel eyeliners are so super awesome . πŸ™‚

  1. Gel Liners are more forgivable than the liquid liners.I find them easier to apply as compared to liquid liners -2-3 strokes of brush and I am sorted.
  2. They dry very fast as opposed to the liquid liners. So there are less chances of ruining your perfect eyeliner application.
  3. You can double up your gel eyeliners as a base for smokey eyes or use them as a kajal on waterline. Those who always look for super long lasting kajals, try using gel liners for waterline. You’d be surprised how long they last.Β They are super long lasting.
  4. I have rarely come across bad gel liners. I have used gel liners from Maybelline, Clinique, Bobbi Brown, Estee Lauder, Inglot, and MAC. I like all of them.
  5. If they dry out, you can mix them with Inglot Duraline and they’d be new again.
  6. They come in a variety of colors.
  7. They come in adorable pots. πŸ˜€

Do you like gel eyeliners? πŸ™‚

  3. although i do love liquid liners too.. for me they apply quicer..somehow.. coz maybe i have practice.. but they lose out on gel liners for me coz they cant be applied on waterline AnD have a heavenly staying power πŸ˜‰

          1. Yap rati is right L’oreal one is a good one :happydance: …..I use it n no issues with it :high5: :high5: …..it’s worth a try… :teddy: :balle:

  6. Was always into liquid one on upper lashline & pencil one on waterline. Got Maybeline & BH gel liners for the 1st time..yet to try ’em & keeping my fingers crossed @ using ’em on waterline as me on perpetual hunt of non-irritating-long-lasting-waterline-buddies πŸ™‚

      1. ThanQ..& I have a Q @ moderation system. Once our comment goes into moderation..do we need to mail you for getting ’em outta prison..? In my case twice they went to moderation & both the times I had to mail you as they dint come out for days on their own..!!

  7. so truuu :yahoo: :yahoo:
    I have 2-3 of them (from Loreal, coastal scents)
    I would defntly pick up more from Inglot, they have sooooo many shades naa :love: :love: :love: :love:

    1. yeahh furr they have loads of shades. The only thing with inlgot liners is that they dry pretty fast as compared to other gel liners. Nothing that cant be rectified though. They are amazingly pigmented. πŸ™‚

  8. i have one in maybelline.. i dont use it to line my upper lids cuz i am not able to get a thin line.. :headbang: may be i shd try a different brush… But they are super awesome for my water line.. it just stays as it is till evening… :dance: :dance:

  9. Definately a gel liner lover. I have the one from ELF for daily use and Bobbi Brown for when I’m working long shifts. Love both. Have used liquid all my teenage years and they have somehow managed to smear on my top lid at the end of the day. Never tried them on the waterline though, but when I do I will get back to you.

  10. i have one from inglot and one frm maybelline and love them both πŸ˜€ still i find pencil liners easy to use. :dumb: may be i need to practice more :haanji:

  11. Hi Rati, i was thinkin of buyin the Inglot #77 gel liner, but am confused which brush to use, since the recommended brush is 30 T which is expensive:( is there any other alternative?

  12. Ooooh! This is something totally new for me! :woot: How do you *apply* gel liners? It may sound silly but if they come in such cute pots, how do you take them out? :silly: And any affordable brands for novices to try their hand first before investing in the expensive ones?

  13. Hi rati thank you so much for dis post i was not knowing dat we can use gel liners on lower lash line today i have brought maybelline gel eyeliner :yahoo: for d first time and i have kept my fingers crossed that it doesnt sting into my eyes when i apply it on lower lash line. Hope it will suit me πŸ™‚

  14. Hey Rati I’m mew to the world of makeup even though I’m 23. But recently I have fallen in love with makeup. It just makes me so happy to look at the products. I got my first lipstick recently..have been using lipgloss and colorbar eyeliner though. I’m always curious about eye makeup. How should I go about it? I’m planning on buying more lipsticks. I would be happy if you could suggest me some brands. The lipstick I bought was Maybelline and I’m pretty happy with it. Thank you.

  15. thanks Rati.. :puchhi: :puchhi: Even i was unaware that it will not fade on the waterline. I need to get one now itself.. :jog: :jog: :jog:

  16. i love gelliners myself so much that i dont remember where is my only liquid liner πŸ˜‰
    i get a awesome depth with l’oreal gel liner..i love it.
    the pic tempts me too buy more !! :silly:

  17. i bought my first eyeliner as maybelline’s gel eye liner and never turned back..even though in teens i did have that cheap lakme liquid eyeliner but never was able to get a straight line and eventually left but now using gel liners applying is so so easy!

    1. I agree with you parita…..they so easy to apply :yes: :haanji: That a novice will also feel comfortable after 2-3times :clap: :announce: :specs: Saying it as I experienced it :specs: πŸ˜› :jiggy1:

  18. I luvvvv gel liners too.. Thanks to u rati for introducing me to ths beauties :toothygrin: i hv black gel liner frm maybelline n a gorgeous grey one frm inglot.. Ws trying to get some frm the coastal scents website but apparently they have been discontinued now..

  19. the only one i have till now is the maybelline wala..and am head over heels for it.. i rarely use the one lakme liquid eyeliner…for daily use it’s either the pencils or the gel liner for me..they don’t smudge budge and stay up for good 5-6 hrs…love it πŸ™‚

  20. I’ve heard a lot of good things about gel eye-liners but didn’t know which brand to try. I think that I’ll try the L’oreal one… it should be easy to find. I’ve been interested in trying eye liners for quite sometime now. :preen:

    Thank you for this post.

  21. Hi Rati, nice n helpful post as my pencil liner just got over.. Thinking of buying L’oreal one after reading Nupur’s review. :haanji: :haanji:
    An unrelated query, if I may ask it here: I so wanna buy the MAC teddy Kohl bcoz I love browns in summers.. But I have a wheatish complexion, so will it show up on me??
    I swatched it at MAC but I didn’t check it on my eyes as I was in a hurry… :((

  22. rati bt my doc advised me not to use gel products on d waterline ur eyes wil get damaged … :waaa:
    wat to do nw he told me to use water based products on d waterline :waiting:

  23. hey great article..after trying every type of eyeliner, gel eyeliners are my favourite too. I own the ones from maybelline and MAC, both of which are pretty good but MAC has an edge that is lasts much longer than the maybelline one. This is the ONLY type of eyeliner that dosent smudge. πŸ™‚

      1. hey damn neat weekend. told you about that Fashion show we were putting together na? well was involved in the practices in that. i am not participating but being organizer have to check whether these guys are doing it right. btw, the themes are Indo-Western (Fusion); party wear and Business-Casual.

        so are you back? we missed you for sure..

  24. agreed on all the points Rati

    same pinch even I m using pencil and gel eye liners nly nw indeed more pencils but gel gives altogethr a different intensity to eyes

  25. Hi Rati…before IMBB, used to use liquid eyeliner Occasionally..but due to my drawing abilities(!!!???!!!) it used to be mess… after joining IMBB, came to know about gel eyeliners and now use Maybelline gel eyeliner on a daily basis :)…love them… easy to apply…nice article :yes:

  26. Hi girls!!

    Always loved liquid liners but my job in tv wants me to look good 24X7… so have developed a new found love for the gel liners… have two… inglot and maybelline… and both r superb….
