Hey guys… hope you had a lovely holiday weekend. We were planning to go out of town and had packed accordingly but we ended up shopping and lounging around the flat and going out and about. Also, we wore the clothes that I packed so it was like a hotel.. LOL! We also shopped a lot and got some really good discounts. What did you guys get for black friday?
Now, if you know me, you know how much I love lining my eyes. I wanted to love gel liners so much but all of them transfer on my upper lid after a while because of my oily hooded lids. I’ve used so may gels and pencils but nothing work other than liquid liners. When they launched this one with so many lovely claims, it made me happy. But did I really like it…. read further to know!
Benefit says : Benefit They’re Real! Push-Up Liner is the first foolproof and budge-proof gel liner in a pen that lasts a full 24 hours. This eyeliner’s soft AccuFlex™ tip is custom-angled to draw an easy line. Its flat, wide guard gently pushes lashes aside to get close to lash line. A gorgeous way to open up eyes, this matte black gel formula won’t dry out, and its cutting-edge tip ensures a precise line every time.
Cost : $24
My take on the liner : The design and the promotion for this was perfect. The slanted tip offered precise application and the pen form was great for travel and on-the-go. When you open it the first time, There is a stopper which you have to remove and twist up from the bottom. the product comes up in the brush and can be applied directly. Easy-peasy??? not so much!!!
The product comes out unevenly and The application is so blotchy. When you twist it, the gel comes out either too less or too much. the gel consistency is really dry. The product crumbles and breaks on the lid making it super messy and I really had to apply some pressure to manage to get a line. At this rate, I’m sure I’m going to injure my lid.. lol!
The MUAs at Sephora say that you take out the product, blot it and then apply…. do you realize how much that wastes the product? and it’s pretty expensive if you ask me! Although Once it is on the lid, it stays for a really long time and won’t budge even when I tried to wash it with oil. I have to really massage my eyes with baby oil to completely get it out. During the wear time, it does not transfer or smudge all over the lid or down the face so that’s a plus.
I tried to apply this a couple of times and had to make use of a Q-tip immersed with remover to make the wing right.
Verdict : This baby really was disappointing! It really is no use wasting your time or money when there are other far superior drugstore products!
