Banila and Co Eye Love Gel Liner in Chocolate Brown!

Hiya,

Happy Sunday !!!

You know my profound love for Gel Liners from my previous posts.But till now I had tried only black gel liners.I used liquid liners when I was in school and then switched to pencils when I was in college now that I have found a love for gel liners I never turned back to pencils or liquids.I use Oriflame Gel Liner and L’Oreal Paris Superliner in Black.I use the Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel liner in Black too.

I love the Loreal Paris one.This is the first time I tried a brown liner from Banila and Co,a Korean brand.Let’s see how this product turned up.

Product Claim:

This Gel liner will not smudge with sweat or water. silicon gel type eyeliner. It’s soft and smooth to give a flawless application.Applies smoothly on the skin.This gel type of polymer on the skin increases lasting of the makeup.

  • Waterproof Type
  • Creates Clear and natural eye lines softly
  • Maintains clear eye makeup all day
  • This has a very long lasting effect – if applied properly.

Price,Quantity: $20.84 for 4g

My Take on the Product:

The product comes in a heavy wide glass pot which has a brown cap with the tag name.It comes in a similar brown outer carton.

The packaging is classy and very attractive and reminds one of chocolates.

The shade is a deep chocolate brown one.When I swatched it on hand the pigmentation was great.It doesn’t seriously show up when you apply it to your eyes.On the eyes pigmentation is not great even after 2-3 swipes.It’s buildable and you will have to use a primer.Unless you use a primer,this will crease above on hot sunny days.

One thing that I found out is that once you apply this it takes a long time than usual to dry.Once dried,it is budge proof,smudge proof and water proof.
The texture is creamy and glides very easily.It is very easy to apply.I hate the fact that I got no brush along with this and I had to use my L’Oreal brush.The finish is a matte one.
When you use a primer you will get better results.It easily survives a normal day at work or with friends.Though its not great its decent enough.It didn’t cause me any irritations.This looked nice on my eyes and lasted for 5-6 hours on a cloudy day.

Pros:

  • Creamy Texture
  • Glides Easily
  • Travel Friendly
  • Fits in purse
  • Attractive packaging
  • Wonderful Brown shade
  • Variety of shades to choose from
  • Matte Finish
  • Smudge proof
  • Water Resistant
  • Long Lasting
  • Decent Staying power
  • No Irritations
  • Easy to remove
  • Multipurpose-Can be used as shadow
Cons:

  • No brush/Applicator
  • Pigmentation is great but it doesn’t show up well on eyes
  • Have to use a Primer for best results
  • Bit Expensive
  • Takes long time to dry

Recommendations: I recommend this one to all of you who would like to wear Coloured Gel Liners.This will be good for Dry lids.If you have oily lids it will crease,I suugest you to use a good primer for best results.This works well on cloudy days than sunny days.

Rating: 3.9/5

Will I Repurchase? No.The black one in this range looks good with some shimmers.Would like to give other shades a try.But No for now.

Final Word:

This is not an extra ordinary gel liner like the Bobbi Brown one and other high end brands.It has equal No of pros and Cons which makes it difficult to decide.It is a decent liner which can be used everyday.You can wear this for work or while meeting your friends and It wont disappoint you.This wont be good for events,special occasions and parties.

This one is not of my type but I am sure some of you will like it.I use this to office everyday and it’s good.
