Best Long-Wearing Gel Liners for €25 or under. While they may be a pain to take off at the end of the day, eyeliners are that one beauty product that you want to be stubborn.
From getting caught in the rain without an umbrella, being stuck on a bus without air conditioning, or having oily eyelids, there are a lot of reasons why your eyeliner may slide from your lash lines or fade from your waterline. Especially if you use gel liner.
Since gel liners have creamy formulas, and while they may be easy to use, they can be prone to smudging.
So I’ve put together some of the best long-wearing gel liners out there for €25 or under.
Urban Decay 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencil € 17.55
This creamy, matte eyeliner from Urban Decay lasts all day and once it dries down, will not budge. It has a great colour payoff and is also free from mineral oil, parabens and preservatives.
Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner € 22.50
This gel-based pencil delivers richly pigmented colour, is smudge-resistant and fade-proof. It has a creamy texture that feels lightweight and comfortable on the skin without tugging or pulling. It’s also sweat and humidity resistant for up to 12 hour wear.
IT Cosmetics No-Tug Waterproof Gel Eyeliner €21.00
With their No-Tug technology, IT Cosmetics have created an eye pencil that glides on highly-pigmented colour without tugging on your delicate eye area. They’ve also worked with plastic surgeons and infused the formula with anti-aging properties to diffuse the look and fine lines for younger looking skin.
Benefit They’re Real Push Up Eye Liner €25.00
This matte gel liner from Benefit is waterproof, it won’t smudge, budge or dry out for 24 hours. (Although I don’t recommend anyone wearing makeup for 24 hours). It is easy to apply once you get use to the applicator but I find if you squeeze a little of the product onto your hand and work it into the tip, it’s very easy to work with.
Smashbox Always On Gel Eye Liner €22.50
If you’re after a sultry, smudged look, this liner is for you. Smashbox’s Always On liner is super blendable so you have a few seconds before it dries down to create the look you want. It’s waterproof and long-lasting and has a great colour payoff.
