Do you want:
1. an eye liner from a reputable brand?
2. a pigmented eye liner below RM100?
3. a gel eye liner that goes on smoothly and is easy to work with?
4. a waterproof eye liner that is suitable on the waterline and tight line?
5. a lightweight eye liner that does not cause discomfort to the eyes?
6. a neutral-coloured eye liner that does NOT BUDGE. At. All.
If most of your answers to the above questions are YES’, I highly recommend you to head over to the nearest Bobbi Brown counter and ask for Chocolate Shimmer Ink, one of its best-selling colours available.
After hearing good things about Bobbi Brown Gel Eye Liner for years, I finally gave in. I wanted a neutral-coloured eye liner instead of black, a colour that I have been religiously using since I started playing with makeup. Yes, I am comfortable that way, and I did not know what had gotten into me one fine day. I just picked this little pot that had “Chocolate Shimmer Ink” written on it. I made swatches with it, then I bought it instantly. No questions asked. Unlike most boring, dark brown eye liners, this gel eye liner shimmers beautifully. The reddish bronze shimmer is VERY subtle, and it does NOT have chunks of glitters that may be a turn off to some.
The staying power of Chocolate Shimmer Ink is crazy! I have recently put this gel eye liner to test where I wore it approximately 12 hours, and it lasted! If there is anything about Chocolate Shimmer Ink that I had to point out, it is that this gel eye liner has the tendency to dry up fast. I have been using this nearly every day for a month now, and I can “feel” that the eye liner drags a little, so I would need to dip my eye liner brush deeper to re-coat with colour. My advice would be to immediately screw the lid of the pot to prevent the product to dry up.
Retailing at RM88 per pot of 3grams, I never regretted trying this gel eye liner from Bobbi Brown. Have you tried one?
