I think I have at last found the brown eyeliner/kajal I was searching for since long. Most brown liners available in the market are actually similar to my skin tone, so such colors never show up on my lid. The name “Dark Brown” attracted me to it and expecting good things, I picked up this product. Read on to know more about this gel glide eyeliner.
Makeup wearers no longer have to choose between the ease of application in an eye pencil and the smooth feel of liquid eyeliner. The new glide liner has the soft and gliding feel of liquid that comes in a pencil that can be sharpened. Available in 19 highly pigmented colours, this product is designed for makeup enthusiasts and trendsetters who are looking for the best products on the market as a reasonable price.
Price and Quantity:
450 INR for 1. 2 gm.
My Experience with L.A. Girl Dark Brown Glide Gel Eyeliner Pencil:
Packaging: This is a matte black and sharpenable pencil. Although I find sharpenable pencils to be hygienic, sharpening creamy products translates to lots of product wastage, so you need to sharpen this one carefully. Also at this price, I expected LA Girl to provide a sharpener along with the liner. This pencil has a colour-coded pattern and fonts printed all over it. There is a colour-coded base also, so if you have many of these in your stash, it’s super easy to locate the one you need. A transparent plastic cap is provided to protect the tip. Overall, the packaging is fine and travel friendly.
Shade/Texture/Pigmentation: The shade is actually a deep brown shade which can be described as a blackish-brown. It will suit all skin tones and for those with brown skin, it is perfect! It shows up beautifully on the lids. The colour is subtle and I actually wear this to lab every day as it gives my eyes some definition without appearing too bold.
The pencil is super creamy and glides smoothly on the lids without tugging or pulling. Although the finish is matte, it looks a little glossy and creamy, so if you are planning to do a dewy makeup, you can use this to get the smooth yet defined look. Also, it helps me to get quick smokey brown eyes. I use it in the crease and outer V and fill in the lid with the deep brown pencil from the same range. There is no glitter or shimmer in it. It looks beautiful in the lower lash line and water line and never irritates the eyes.
Staying Power: It stays on for around 7-8 hours and settles to a velvety matte finish. Once it is set, it stays smudge-proof and waterproof. The colour intensity also stays the same. It does not crease when used as a shadow either. It fades a little from the inner corner. Removing it with a water-based cleanser can be very tough. I prefer a cream-based product to remove it completely.
