Battle of Gel Eyeliners

Hello, lovelies~ I wanted to compare some of the gel eyeliner I have in my makeup collection. All of these are drugstore gel liners that you can find at your local drugstore or supermarket. Let me introduce the competitors.

From the left, is gel eyeliner from SILKYGIRL, Revlon, Maybelline and L'oreal. They all come with an eyeliner brush that I have lost somewhere in my room. However, they are all good quality brushes as they have soft bristles and doesn't irritate my eyelids. 

After patted dry with tissue
The first test is waterproof test. I put my hand under running water from my tap for a minute. Afterwards, I pat them gently with a tissue paper to see if it comes off. As you can see from the pictures above, all of them are waterproof. I haven't tried crying while using them, though. o_O

The next test is to see whether or not they are smudge proof. I rubbed them with my fingers to see if it smudges (well, duh). Among the four, Revlon's is the least smudgeproof, even though it still smudges a little. The worst is between SILKYGIRL and Maybelline, probably because they are the creamier compared to the other two. Revlon's gel eyeliner has shimmers/glitters that gets everywhere when I rubbed it.

As for the staying power, I'd say that Revlon's eyeliner stayed the longest on my oily eyelids. L'Oreal was second, SILKYGIRL then followed by Maybelline. I just couldn't stand the shimmers on the Revlon eyeliner. It gets everywhere on my face nearing the end of the day, but that didn't bother me so much. 

I hope this helps in picking out which gel eyeliner works best for your eyelid skin type, lol. My eyelids are oily and droopy just for reference. I'll see you in my next post, toddles ~
