Bobbie Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner Review Swatches of Black Ink and Black Mauve Shimmer

Eyeliners are like essentials. I can’t step out without a stroke of eyeliner on my eyelids. Do you feel that???

Let me tell you, I have super oily eyelids. Eyeliners usually fade/ smudge very easily on eyelids. Finding a good long lasting eyeliner was something I was on to for a very long time. I think now that I have found my ‘The’ eyeliner, let me share yo more details with you guys.

Classic Bobbie Brown packing with black and white combination. The pack has all details like – name, shade, ingredients, expiry etc.

Product comes in the glass pot with black plastic lid. Glass looks sturdy but it’s not. I dropped it accidentally and it broke..!! I am glad it did not break in the middle and spill the product. Phew.

Please note that the product does not comes with applicator brush. I know many eyeliners which comes with ne, but this one doesn’t.

Consistency :
Gel consistency. Glides smoothly.
But one thing I did not like is the fact that the gel eyeliners usually gets hard after certain period of time (may be an year or so). This eyeliner too gets hard, making it little difficult to apply.

 

 

Pigmentation:
Pigmentation is quite nice. Single stroke gives good pigment.

Shades for review :
Black Ink :
Color – It’s deep black shade.
Finish – Matte finish.

Black Mauve Simmer Ink :
Color – It’s kind of a brown shade with very small shimmer particles.
Finish – Slightly glossy finish.

Lasting Power:
I usually wear it for office. It lasts for around 8-9 hours without smudging.

Waterproof?
Definitely yes. It’s hard to clean without makeup remover.

Pros:

  • Nice pigmentation.
  • Lasts really long on oily eyelids as well.
  • Smudge proof.
  • Water proof.
  • Little goes long way so the pot is going to lasts long.
  • Glides smoothly.
  • Did not irritate my eyes.

Cons:

  • Does not comes with applicator brush. You ill have to spend little extra on a brush.
  • Glass packing needs extra care as it might break if it falls.
  • Gel turns hard after certain months.
  • Most of the shades are either out of stock/ discontinued/ not available in India. dah..!!!

Repurchase/ Recommendation:
Once I finish the pots completely, yes I am going to buy. I have finally found eye liners for my oily eyelids. Yeahhh..!!!

If you too have oily eyelids and looking for long lasting eyeliner – this is the one. As little goes long way, the pot lasts longer and it’s definitely worth the price.

Mygirlypedia Rating : 4.75 /5 (Deducting 0.25 with heavy heart for no brush and not so sturdy glass packing. )

 

Review of My Most Used Lip Balm

Hey,

People keep asking me, “you use lipsticks so much, don’t your lips get dry???”… Ummm more than lipsticks the air conditioner makes my lips dry. So, I always keep a lip balm handy.

Now, the obvious question… Which one???

Let me review my most used lip balm till date.

Brand : The Body Shop

Range : Born Lippie

wp-1504540295268.

Flavor : Strawberry (my favorite 🍓)

Tint : Red

Price : 275 INR

Ingredients :

wp-1504337664532.

Availability : In the body shop outlets and online.

Packing :

Comes in semi transparent plastic box. The cartoon has this red lips design on it.

wp-1504337664715.

Sturdy box with tight lid is super handy.

What I liked about it

  • The color,the flavor was enough for me to pick this one,the first time. 💋
  • The fragrance. The yummy strawberry fragrance makes you feel like eating it. Trust me. The other day, the lip balm was lying on my table in the office. One of my colleagues picked it up out of curiosity. He opened it and he asked me about it. I said it’s my lip balm. He had thought it’s something edible sweet. Haha.🍓 Thank God, he didn’t taste it. #sigh
  • It hydrates lips well. It keeps lips moisturized. 💋
  • Along with moisturization, the Tint and shine it adds is amazing. Lips look luscious and shiny. It’s more kind of lip gloss. 💖
  • It’s vegan. Being an animal lover, I love the body shop products as its cruelty Free. 🐇
  • Little goes long way. Hence worth the money. 💰
  • Ingredients list seems safe one. 💊

What I didn’t like

  • It doesn’t do much if you have extremely dry lips. When I have very dry lips, I use the lip scrub and then apply this balm. It works that way. 😕
  • Tub packing is unhygienic. Every time I have to dip my fingers in order to take out the product and apply it on my lips. Thus there is a hygiene concern. 😕

Will I repurchase

It’s my third box. I will repurchase the same flavor. I love this color out of all other flavors. 😍

Will I recommend

Yes. You will love this lip balm. I guarantee. 😉
