The Bobbi Brown gel eyeliners have been my HG eyeliner and a staple in my daily makeup routine for so long that I’m a little ashamed it’s taken this long to write about them.
I love them because they are so long wearing- not only on the upper lashline, but also on my waterline. It is pretty rare for eyeliners (including pencil, gel, cream varieties) that will stay on my waterline for more than 30 minutes, and these will go strong for 5+ hours. MAC Blacktrack Fluidline is a distance second in terms of lasting power on the water line- not bad in the scheme of things but will still fade significantly at the 2-3hr mark. The Stila Smudge pots perform about the same as Blacktrack- but they dry out so quickly in the pot that the product is virtually unusable after a few months.
Black Ink is an opaque black with good pigmentation and a matte finish. Espresso Ink is a dark blackened brown, with no reddish tones (I find it really hard to find brown liners without warm tones!)- it is quite pigmented, although my swatch doesn’t show it.
What is your favourite long lasting eye liner?
