Bobbi Brown Long-wear gel liner in 'Black Ink' Review, Photos & Swatches

Hey BD beauties!


I know that this is my post after months away from my blog! Let me apologize for that straightaway  :( as you must be aware now I have been freelancing for a while now, that literally took almost all the time of my day that I could not write on my blog for a while now. Anyways apart from my ramble here is a review of one of my favorite Gel eyeliners I love using on myself as well as clients!



What Bobbi brown says about this product?

A true original. This award-winning long-wearing eyeliner offers the precision of liquid liner with the ease of a gel-based formula—all with 12 hours of waterproof and sweat- and humidity-resistant wear.


My experience with this product.

I came across this product when I was initially building my professional kit; this particular liner was raved by many for the pigments and longevity. Living in srilanka, where there is no bobbi brown counter or store to check it out in person so I had to take the gamble and buy it online. I bought this from an amazon seller based in USA. It cost me a lot more than the retail price just because every branded makeup on amazon and eBay are expensive!



However this retails for $25, which is a high price for a gel liner. The gel liner is really pigmented and doesn’t look grey when you apply on eye shadows which happens a ton of times of the gel liner hasn’t got enough pigment. However it’s not as pigmented as Anastasia Beverly hills crème color in Jet, which is my absolute favorite right now!

The product is very creamy, and glides on smooth on the lids without skipping. However I do notice that towards the 3rd week of use, the gel liner gets a little bit more stiff and harder to use which is quite common with gel liners in general but this was a little too quick than other gel liners I have tried. The longevity of this product is impeccable it wears until you decide to remove it off which by the way is tough too!


Bobbi brown is available for purchase from Sephora in USA, Selfridges in UK as for Srilanka you can get it from eBay or Amazon.







What’s great about this product?

  • ·      Pigmented Black eyeliner
  • ·      Wears beautifully for long hours.
  • ·      Glides smoothly


What’s not so great about this product?

  • ·      The product dries up a bit too soon


Overall verdict


I do love this eyeliner, however I have now found one better, which is the Anastasia Beverly, hills waterproof crème color in JET which I will be reviewing soon! If your looking for a good waterproof eyeliner but use eyeliners more often this would be great for you!

Until next time,
