Eyeliner is my best frenemy. Some mornings, my eyeliner and I get along perfectly, leaving me proud and accomplished as I sport a perfect look. However, some morning I smudge or apply my liner unevenly me. On these days, we’re not such good friends.

I have always failed miserably when working with liquid liners, so I used to stick to pencil liners. However, I felt a bit limited and struggled to get a variety of liner effects (cat eye, thick lines, thick lines, you get the picture). About a year or so ago, I started trying out gel liners. I was hooked instantly. I love the flexibility that the brushes allow me, yet I much prefer the control of the gel liner over the liquid.

Recently, I was introduced to CAILYN’s gel eyeliner. One thing that first caught my eye about this product is the packaging. The gel liner pot and the brush are built-in together, which makes for easy transportation while travelling. Plus, I liked the wide range of colors.

I’ve been using “chocolate mousse” for my daily makeup routing over the past couple of weeks, and I love it. The color works well with my skin tone and the liner doesn’t budge. While applying the liner, you have a few minutes to fix any mistakes. However, after a bit the liner dries and stays more or less smudge/waterproof all day long.

I wish the brush came to a bit more of a point, but it does hold it’s shape very well.

Each CAILYN gel liner with a built-in brush retails for $21 on their site.

What type of liner do you prefer?

    Wow! You got a much thinner line than I was expecting with that brush. Does it wear all day or smudge at all?
