Gel vs Liquid Eyeliner



I am a cat eye fiend. It's not often that I choose to go out without the trusted flicks protruding from each eye. Since my 22nd Birthday, liquid eyeliner was my everyday, without fail cosmetic for the past 5+ years. If I was only able to put one piece of make-up on, it would be the liquid eyeliner cat eyes.

I've worked my way through liquid eyeliners, 'Supercat' from Soap & Glory being my topping my list of favourites because of it's ease of application. The perfect flick can be done in just two swipes, which makes getting ready for work in no time, a breeze. It's one of the best eyeliners for colour pay-off too, it's not quite as dark as I like it, I definitely give it two coats but it's better than most hughstreet brands i've tried.

However, when it comes to gel eyeliner, i'm a new convert. I've been using the MAC Fluidline which I picked up after my Birthday Make-up session (you can read about that here), and it's true love. The colour is amazing, it's statement bold! The stay power is incredible too, lasts a good few hours longer than liquid eyeliner any liquid eyeliner i've tried previously. However, your eyes are in need of a deep Bioderma bath in order to remove it properly. The only problem that puts me off using it, is it's not your everyday product. What I mean is, you can't just slap it on and hope for the best before you run to work with an apple on the go. You do need time to sit down and concentrate, which is a shame because I would use gel eyeliner everyday had I been able to apply faster.

Love always,
Melissa
