One of the more important things to have great eye makeup is a gel liner, you get the same definition and depth of liquid liner but with more control and precision, especially if you have shaky hands.
There are many great brands out there, MAC Blacktrack is especially popular but if you want something cheaper, especially if you're a newbie who wants to practice or don't use makeup that often,
Landbis' liner from Born Pretty Store might be a better option!
This gel liner comes in a plastic box and also includes a small angled liner brush, which is great for traveling! The liner itself comes in a cute little pot, not unlike the Maybelline or MAC liners, but instead of being heavy glass, this one is a very light weight plastic! ^_^
The lid has a pretty rose print and writing on it, all in pink.
The brush that comes with it is travel size, but I found it to be even better than Maybelline's gel liner brush at drawing thick or very thin lines!
Colour and Texture:
The liner has amazing colour payoff! It's a deep, deep black and barely needs going over.
The texture too, is very good. The finish is like satin, not glossy or very matte, it doesn't accentuate lines on the eyes or cling and dry up.
I remove some on the back of my hand to use and it takes a while to dry up, I have plenty of time to use it, whereas with most other gel liners, I'm constantly removing and using more and more product because it keeps drying up!
Also, I know it says cream liner on the pot,but it really isn't!
Cream liner is not smudge and waterproof, so it needs to be set. This liner is definitely gel considering it doesn't smudge or come off with water!
Plus, I love how it doesn't dry up on my hand but as soon as I apply it, it doesn't budge from my eyelids! >w<
I didn't do hand swatches but I did a few eye looks to show you how good this stuff is! I used the brush that comes with it for application. ^_^
This is just normal winged liner, if you follow me on Instagram, you must have seen an experiment I did with eyeliner...
This was done completely with the Landbis liner and brush!
So you can see how workable both the liner and the brush are!
I think it is safe to say I adore this liner and would recommend it to anyone, from beginner to expert! This line has a lovely texture and colour and lasts for hours! Plus at less than 4$ the price is right!~
