The Award Winner – Bobbie Brown Long-Wear eyeliner.

17 Aug

So, is there any truth behind the hype surrounding the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeline.  It has, afterall, won “Elle” ‘Genius Award’, “In Style” ‘Best Beauty Buy’,  “Allure” ‘Reader’s Choice Award’,  and it has just come back under my radar as I’ve read Amy Winehouse uses it.

I used to use a pencil eye-liner (Clinique), so I thought it would be difficult to get used to a gel-liner applied with a brush, but this is even simpler than a pencil, goes on easily, blends well for layering or smoking out and the gel last so much longer.  Though I’m not very skilled at eye-liner application it’s easy to control a thin line.

I’ve even  put it through the gym test, impressively – after a four mile run it didn’t smug.  Not even a little.  The rest of me looked a mess but my eyes looked perfect! (Not that I usually wear make-up running, oh God who am I kidding, I wear a little concealer over my sun-block because you just know the one day you leave the house looking like you’ve been dragged through a ditch you’ll bump into him – the ex.  No judgement, please.  And yes, I also wear waterproof mascara, even when I go to the pool. )

But back to the product – I also love the new a/w colour – forest shimmer ink.  Try it, I know you’ll love it.
