Maybelline launch Eye Studio Gel Liner
Thursday, February 17th, 2011

Maybelline are the latest to jump on the gel eyeliner bandwagon with their latest release, Eye Studio Gel Liner.

I’m a huge gel liner fan, so it’s great to see more affordable brands bringing out these liners, as up until recently it was impossible to find one for less than a tenner. Gel liner takes a bit of getting used to, and I’m sure most people would prefer to practice with a cheaper option before moving onto the higher end offerings, especially as they have a tendency to dry out quite quickly.

Maybelline’s offering comes with a brush so you can get playing straight away, and promises 24hr lasting power (we’ll see about that!). It’ll usually retail for £7.99 but Superdrug have it for the introductory price of £5.99, so if you fancy it, now is the time to get shopping!

Tried & Tested: E.L.F Studio Cream Eyeliner
Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

I said I’d be bringing you some eyeliner reviews in the coming weeks, and here’s the first – a budget find that delivers far more than you’d expect from its £3.50 price tag. Part of E.L.F’s slightly higher-end ‘Studio’ line, this is a ‘cream’ liner rather than a gel, so it has a slightly chalkier feel than some more expensive offerings when applied. That said, what it lacks in beautiful texture it makes up for in smudge-proof staying power, and if you’re looking for a great, long-lasting eyeliner at a low price, I would definitely recommend giving this a go!
