I am not the kind of person who can put on make-up on a daily basis. There are days that even putting on some face powder is already a chore for me. I am that kind of Momma. The always-tired-and-busy-no-time-to-comb-hair kind of Momma. But since I am a working Mom, I try my best to at least make myself presentable. I’ve got my own kikay kit.
Moisturizer. BB Cream (seldom used). Face powder. Lipstick + Lipbalm. And… my eyeliner!
I used to love liquid eyeliners! I put them on my upper eyelid and make my eyes more expressive (if its being huge doesn’t make it expressive enough hahaha). But last Sunday, I chance upon the Maybelline stall at Watson’s Festival Mall in Alabang. And I saw this Gel Liner currently at 50% off!
Since a mommy friend, from one of the support group I am a member of, has recently bought the product and highly recommended the product to us, I gave in and bought myself the gel liner. I consider it as my gift to myself.
I think it is a pretty good buy since I got it for half of its price. The container is cute and it has its own brush which makes me feel like I am gonna paint myself. Lol.
It is my first try on using a gel liner but surprisingly, it is very easy to apply unlike with liquid eyeliners. My hands are sometimes shaky which makes it a little hard for me to apply liquid eyeliner (but I still do anyway).
The Maybelline Gel Liner holds a promise that it has a long lasting staying power for up to 36 hours. I wasn’t able to test that 36 hours though since I do wash my face before I sleep in the evening of course. 😀
But I am happy to tell you about an instance on the 1st day that I tried applying the gel liner for the 1st time. Around 3 in the afternoon, I forgot that I was wearing an eyeliner and I scratched my eyelids using the back of the palm of my hands. I got panicky because whenever I accidentally do that habit while I am wearing liquid eyeliners, I end up looking like a descendant of kung fu panda. No kidding! Hahaha! But with gel liner, it didn’t happen. It just faded a little but it’s still there. As if I haven’t scratched it at all. 🙂
Overall, I love the Maybelline Gel Liner. Will I buy it again? Yes, especially if it’s on sale again by the time my gel liner container gets emptied. Hihi. I’m one thrifty Momma, you know.. 😀
If you plan on buying the product, grab it while you can! It’s on sale for only Php 199.50 until April 3, 2016. Happy shopping!
