Eye-line it with Bobbi Brown

Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner (RRP £16.50)
I was looking for a more heavy-duty eyeliner that delivers great results and lasts at least 8hrs. I decided to try the Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner from Bobbi Brown (RRP £16.50) as I heard some great things about this product. And it hasn’t disappointed me! I absolutely LOVE the product. 

Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner (RRP £16.50) and Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush (RRP £21) both by Bobbi Brown.

This eyeliner delivers all I asked for. Its long lasting, water-resistant formula glides on the eye lid with ease making the eyeliner application process even easier. The product doesn’t dry until it’s applied, and once dried it doesn’t smear or crease as any previous products I used.

The Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush in focus
Application technique: For best results use the Gel eyeliner with Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush (RRP £21) covering it on both sides. Remove the excess of the product by taping the brush lightly into a tissue. Apply it very closely to the eyelashes about 3/4 of the way on the top lid and 1/2 way under the eye starting from middle and working your way out (see the photos below). Once applied, the product dries on and stays for hours. 

The ultimate test

I decided to put this product to a test to see how long it will actually last. Take a look at the results below:
