There are so many types of eyeliners on the market. For example, there are liquid liners, cream-based liners, gel-based liners, khol-based liners, liquid potted creams and gel-based eye liners that come in pencil form. That being the case, how do you decide which eyeliner is right for you? With this is mind, remember, the type of liner you choose greatly affects your application. To begin with, I love a thick line on my upper lashes. I also draw a line on my lower lash line. Then, I draw a slight wing from my lower lash line to meet with the end of my upper lash line. In addition, I also tight line my eyes. One of my favorite liners is the Marc Jacobs Highliner and Fineliner. Now, a new eyeliner from Milk Makeup, Milk Makeup Long Wear Gel Eyeliner is giving Marc Jacob’s highliner some competition.
The new Milk Makeup Long Wear Gel Eyeliner comes in six shades, with matte, satin, sparkle and holographic finishes.
Milk Makeup Long Wear Gel Eyeliner Packaging
To begin with, not everyone is a beauty guru ,or a makeup junkie. In other words, not everybody wants makeup. Therefore, Milk Makeup is the brand for the girls who are anti-beauty! However, that doesn’t mean they don’t use makeup. In fact, these are the girls who feel overwhelmed when they walk into Sephora. They are the opposite of someone like me! For instance, when I walk into a Sephora, I feel like I’m in beauty heaven!
Not everybody is obsessed with makeup. Unfortunately, the women who aren’t makeup “obsessed” aren’t represented in beauty marketing. As a result, Milk caters to this group. For example, these people don’t wear too much makeup. Furthermore, they don’t own much makeup. Although they may dabble with a few products. However, the shiny, sparkling packaging does not impress them. The point is, makeup’s razzle dazzle packaging is for the makeup lovers in this world. Milk Makeup caters to the diverse population who puts up with makeup. The result is, the entire Milk Makeup collection’s packaging is basic, clean, and to the point. There are no bells and whistles on the Milk packaging. There are no fancy boxes.
The Long Wear Gel Eyeliner comes packaged in a clear tube. The shade name is on the plastic cap. Also, the makeup crayons have directions on them. For example, an arrow points directly to the point of the crayon. Another arrow shows you where the sponge is. Furthermore, the job of the sponge, “smudges”, is written on the crayon. In addition, the sponge tip can be used to tightline. Also important, use the sponge to create a smokey eye.
Milk Makeup Long Wear Gel Eyeliner Formula
Milk’s Gel Eyeliner has rich pigments. In addition, the formula is waterproof. Also the formula has Avocado Oil and Hyaloronic Acid in it. The reason is both ingredients are hydrating. As a result, they smooth the skin so that the eye liner glides on easily.
Milk Makeup Long Wear Gel Eyeliner Shades
To begin with, there are six Gel Eyeliner shades. To begin with, the shades I chose are Boss, and Bonus.
First, Boss is a black shade with a satin finish.
And, Bonus is a brown shade with a sparkle finish.
Also, another brown shade, CEO, has a satin finish. Next, there is a Navy Blue shade with a satin finish. Next, shade BCC is a sand shade with a matte finish. Last, PTO is a holographic shade with a shimmer finish.
Milk Makeup Long Wear Gel Eyeliner Why Use A GEL?
The kind of eyeliner you choose influences the application you are looking for. For example, liquid eyeliners are great if you want to draw a sharp wing. On the other hand, cream-based eyeliners are good for smudging either on the lid or in the waterline. However, they tend to smear. As a result, they can get in your eyes. Khol-based liners are great for strong pigments, and smudging, Also, you can use them to darken your waterline. Both creams and khols are your go-to liners for smudging or for creating a smokey eye.
I chose the gel-based formula because it is waterproof. It is long-lasting. Also important, it is easy to apply because it glides on without tugging your waterline. I find the gel liner creates the perfect waterline in both my upper and lower lash lines. Because it dries quickly, it doesn’t run into your eyes. Therefore, it is also perfect if you have watery eyes. There is nothing worse than when your liner goes into your eyes. The result is, you tend to wipe your eyes, and your shadows, liner and mascara run all over the place. Then, you have to take off all of your makeup and start all over again. It happens to me all of the time! Finally, the gel liner also draws a good winged liner look. Most of all, gel liners are safe to use in your waterline!
Milk Makeup Long wear Gel Eyeliner Last But Not Least……
No liner is perfect. The Milk Long Wear Gel Eyeliner is difficult to keep sharpened. Also, twist ups , like the Marc Jacob’s Highliner,get blunt quickly. Because the formula is super creamy, it is difficult to maintain a point. In fact, when I tried Boss, the black liner, the point broke off instantly. Otherwise, they are easier to work with than some of the other liners. Another issue, the formula tends to be thicker than a liquid, or cream pot.
Therefore, the line you draw is going to be thicker. If you want a thin line, you are better off with a liquid liner. My best tip – practice is the key to mastering any eyeliner look!
