A quickie for you today... I'm comparing two very similar gel eyeliners, one I love, the other I'll leave. Both come in similar packaging, a pot with a brush under the lid. My comments are purely based on the formula of the eyeliner, and not the packaging which some love, some don't. Personally, I don't mind.
I got this for half price at the Chemist Warehouse sale and even full price it would definitely be worth it. Colour pay off is great, it's an intense dark black. One dip of the brush in the pot is enough to line the whole eye. And best of all it lasts the whole day without smudging.
Verdict: Love it.
Revlon Colorstay Gel eyeliner in Black - RRP $24.95
I picked this up from Priceline when they were having that 40% off sale and let me tell you, I'm not impressed. If I'd paid full price I'd be pretty disappointed. In fact I am disappointed. The pigmentation is very weak, I need to dip the brush into the pot several times to get any colour pay off, and it feels very dry when I apply it.
Verdict: Leave it.
|Both eyeliners applied with one dip of the brush - as you can see the Revlon one has very weak pigmentation. PS: excuse the super dry hands, that's what happens when it's cold out and you don't apply hand cream.|
Have you tried any of these eyeliners? What are your thoughts?
