Skin Tone: Medium Fair, Warm Undertones
I have picked quite a few shades of L.A. Girl Gel Glide Eye Pencil. Today’s review is on the shade “Goldmine.” Read on further for more details about the product.
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 colors, this product is designed for makeup enthusiasts and trendsetters who are looking for the best products on the market as a reasonable price.

My Experience with L.A. Girl Gold Mine Gel Glide Eyeliner Pencil:
The eyeliner comes in a matte black-colored pencil packaging. The matte pencil has a color-coded base along with color-coded font. The pencil has a clear cap that does not shut with any click. Hence, it is necessary to shut the cap tightly as it slips off easily. The pencil is lightweight and looks nice. This is sharpenable pencil that needs to be sharpened after every use to get a fresh pointed tip. The pencil does not come with any sharpener. Overall, the packaging is fine.
This is the first time that I have opted for a gold eyeliner. The shade “Goldmine” is a bright glittery gold eyeliner. It is full of gold shimmer that imparts a metallic finish to this eyeliner. The shimmers are neither too big nor too small. This eyeliner will look over the top, if it is not worn with proper makeup. This gold eyeliner is definitely not an everyday shade, but it is a great option to create dramatic eye looks for parties, weddings and festivals. I had tried creating a dramatic eyeliner look in the swatch below using two vibrant eyeliners. So, if you want to add some thing with a bling like this into your makeup stash, this is a worth trying. The pigmentation of the eye pencil is not very intense. It requires multiple swipes to build up the color. So, I need to glide the pencil on my eyelids over and over again to make the color intense.
Apart from the shade, the texture of the eyeliner is something that has made me fall for it. It glides super easily and smoothly on the eyelids without any tug or pull. I find it a little difficult to build up the color on my waterline. The color swipes away from the waterline. It feels like the formulation of the eyeliner is waxy, but it works nicely on my upper and lower lash line. The eyeliner sets to a nice velvety finish. The formula is lightweight and safe for contact lens wearers. It glides evenly on the eyelids and never gets patchy. The shimmers in the eyeliner stay in place and does not budge at all. The pencil is waterproof and smudge-proof. It does not have that tendency to crease and it looks so fresh throughout the day.
The lasting power of this eye pencil is lovely. It lasted for more than 8 hours or so on my eyelids with a minimal fading from the corners. The color looks fresh and intense all day long, but it fade away after 4-5 hours from my waterline. There’s no heavy smudging. The eyeliner is slightly difficult to remove due the presence of these shimmers. Using a good eye makeup remover will do the job perfectly. Overall, this is a nice product.
