You guys know I'm a huge fan of gel and liquid liners, so it should come as no surprise that I was itching to try this as soon as I heard about it. This product claims to be the first gel liner pen in the world - pretty exciting stuff - and boasts a rubber AccuFlex™applicator. It's a twist-up pen, so you have total control over how much liner comes out each time.
The first time I tried this, I wasn't totally sure how I felt about it. The applicator felt a little awkward and the pen tugged on my eyes more than I thought it would, which was pretty uncomfortable for me as my eye area is quite sensitive. However, the more I used this, the more I came to love it. The applicator definitely take some getting used to, but once you do, it's amazing. I like to wing my liner out every day and this makes it so easy. My wing is perfect every time I use this, which is something I've never experienced before and absolutely adore.
As for the tugging I experienced the first time I used this, I quickly realized that it was because I wasn't twisting out enough of the gel liner. I was using really really little, so there wasn't enough product for it to really glide. And glide it does, but I still find it that it goes on a little more smoothly if I pull the skin a little bit taut.
In addition to all of that, this is one of the most long-lasting eyeliners I've ever used. It doesn't smudge or flake on me, even though I know it does on some other people, and even hours and hours after I've applied it, it looks like I've just put it on. Where other people have found it really difficult to remove, however, I haven't. I find it comes off easily with my Shu Uemura cleansing oil, so I really haven't got any complaints!
