On Friday I joined Benefit and Citroen for an amazing day out at Silverstone race course which I cannot wait to share with you, but for now I wanted to show you this new Benefit gel eyeliner which I was lucky enough to pick up in my goody bag from the event. The liner doesn’t launch till the end of June so I was excited to give it a whirl!
The They’re Real push-up liner is a lash hugging gel liner pen, sort of reminiscent of a felt tip pen with a very sharp point and is in keeping with the same They’re Real theme as the mascara which I love and pretty much use everyday. I have always wanted to try a gel liner, but the little pots and teeny brushes have always tested my patience, so for a gel to be combined in a pen I knew we were going to be BFF’s.
I gave the pen a try today and I must say I am very impressed. On first use you remove the little orange plastic bit and then twist the bottom of the pen a few times to activate the gel so you see it coming out the top, it then recommends a couple of twists each time you use it. I found it really easy to apply and I am so used to using a liquid liner, but the principle is the same, it’s just gel that comes out instead.
The eyeliner really pops out your eyes as it is a jet black colour and doesn’t fade throughout the day, which some of my others have done. I also tested out the waterproof factor, I put a line on my hands and tried to wash it off, it wouldn’t budge, not even a smudge! But did come off easily with my Simple eye cream remover incase you were worried of not getting it off.
Even if you are an eyeliner novice I would say this is very simple to use and has such a perfect brush that it basically directs you on how to put it on. I really liked using it and would definitely recommend it!
Benefit’s new eyeliner launches June 28th and is priced at £18.50.
