I've always been a liquid liner kinda girl. Gel liner's have always looked too fiddly and dry so i've avoided purchasing them in the past. When my Birchbox arrived i noticed a gel liner in it and decided to give it a whirl and was pleasantly surprised.
My biggest problem with liquid eyeliner is that it jumps so you're left with blank patches. This gel liner glided on with ease, very quickly, and didn't jump at all. It lasts for about 6 hours without fading and needing a touch up. It smudges quite easily so it's easy to create a smokey eye effect. The colour is solid and needs about 2-3 minutes to set fully.
