One more eye makeup review from the new launch range of The Body Shop, the Velvet Gel Pen Eyeliner. Read on to know the details about the product.
Price – Rs 650/-
My Experience with The Body Shop Velvet Gel Pen Eyeliner:
The gel eyeliner comes in a twist up pencil packaging. The details are mentioned on the wrapper. Once you remove the wrapper you lose the information. So it is better to keep a track of it before removing it for future reference.
The texture is slightly on the drier side considering it is a “gel” eyeliner. Though there is no tugging or pulling while application but slight creamier version would have aided in more comfortable application. It is good for the waterline but for the lashline there is a bit of effort to be put in.
The pigmentation is not jet black even after 2 swipes. It can be called a light black liner. But the staying power is worth applause. It stayed on my lid till I removed it with an oil based cleanser/makeup remover. On the waterline it stayed for 4-5 hours after which it started fading. The good thing is, even after long hours the liner did not create panda eyes.
Overall I think it is slightly over priced as there are a lot of black liners in the market at competitive prices. But again, it is The Body Shop, so the pricing is bit high. The liner is nothing great but can be given a try if you are too eager to get a matte black pencil liner for the waterine.
Pros of The Body Shop Velvet Gel Pen Eyeliner:
• Simple packaging.
• No irritation.
• Stays long on waterline/lashline.
• Smudge proof.
Cons of The Body Shop Velvet Gel Pen Eyeliner:
• Not jet black.
• Slightly dry.
IMBB Rating – 3.75/5
