A Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Liner obsession

I'm one of those girls who has to wear eyeliner. I just don't think my makeup looks right without liner, and whether it's pencil, liquid or gel, my look isn't complete without it. Although I love pencil and liquid liners, the formula I find easiest to work with is gel, and my favourite brand for gel liners? Bobbi Brown, every single time.

I've tried a few budget gel liners over the years, and although there's some gems available on the high-street, I find after a few months they tend to dry up or get harder in consistency making them less easy to work with. The Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Liner range is incredible, with the perfect consistency every time, gorgeous and simplistic packaging and a gorgeous array of shades to suit any tastes and occasion. 

Not just any gel liner, this range has won awards for being the best of the best. The perfect way to give the look and effect of a liquid liner but with the ease of application and comfortable feel of a gel formula, they're incredibly long-wearing as well as water-resistant all with amazing colour pay-off. Drying to a matte finish, they stay put all day without budging, smudging or creasing in fine lines, whilst still being easy to remove with a good bi-phase eye makeup remover.

I currently have four shades in my collection, each working perfectly for a variety of looks. 1 Black Ink is the perfect true black, 2 Sepia Ink is a gorgeous rich brown, 28 Denim Ink the most stunning navy blue with fine navy micro-glitter and 31 Steel Ink is a lovely navy-grey and like Denim Ink, has very fine micro-glitter. I have my eye on a fair few others from the range too, especially Black Mauve Shimmer and Violet Ink. 

Bobbi Brown have their own liner brushes in their expansive makeup brush range, but the liner brush I use is my favourite and beloved Sigma E05 Eye Liner Brush, £10.95, which is perfect for creating any liner look you like.

The Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Liner range isn't the cheapest out there at £18, but honestly, nothing else compares for me! It's worth the splurge if you're after a long-lasting and high-quality gel liner, and they last so long that you definitely get your monies worth.

  1. Gel liner scares me a little, but actually it doesn't sound that bad to work with!

    1. For me they're by far the easiest to apply. That said I do think it massively depends on the brush you're using. The shape of the Sigma brush in the post is perfect for me and the right shape for me to work with. I've tried flat liner brushes before and just couldn't get anywhere with them! xo

  7. I love this range, my favourites being Black Ink and Forest Ink. I always seem to find they dry out around the 6-8 month mark and at that point I've barely made a dent in them! xx

    1. Ah no that's such a shame. I've had most of mine longer than that and they're still fine, haven't dried up or anything! How do you store them? xo

  8. I so wish I could pull off eyeliner like you do! Mine always ends up all wonky because I haven't got a steady enough hand nor the patience to persevere with it!! x

    1. I think it's definitely trial and error at first, but once you get the hang of it it comes pretty naturally! xo

  10. I really want to try these! I love the Maybelline one but love the colour range BB has :) Navy and Brown are great alternatives to black

    1. Maybelline was the first brand I tried for gel liners, but I find the consistency to be much wetter than these and they'd dry up after just a couple of months! xo

  11. I haven't used a gel liner for ages- I'm in a bit of a kohl phase at the moment!! I used the Maybelline one which was great value, but dried up in the end. I think the Bobbi Brown would be worth the splurge xx

    1. Maybelline was where I stated with gel liners and although it was a great product, like you said, it dried up - and pretty quickly too! None of my Bobbi Brown ones have dried at all (yet), and I've had some of them over a year now. Sometimes it really is a case of getting the quality you pay for xo
