I'm always on the lookout for products that will last, but will still look fresh when my day is over. When I heard this new company, Inglot Cosmetics, had a gel eyeliner that outlasts any other on the market my interest was peeked. The official product name on their website is Matte Collection AMC Eyeliner Gel. I used number 77.
The test was a 15 hour day (applied at 7AM, removed at 10:30PM) and the application was a 50's style winged eye liner. This application requires exact precision, with this look no mistakes can be made and covered with with a smudged line. I used a synthetic bristled, angled brush to apply this product, similar to the 263 brush referenced in my essential brushes post.
-Budget friendly - There's a large amount of product for the price. (0.19 oz vs 0.1 oz which is about the average size)
-Tons of matte colors (as well as metallic colors not shown on the website)
-Simple, easy packaging.
-Opaque, velvety color.
-Paraben free and no animal testing.
-The texture is great! This is my ultimate test for gel liners. It's has a nice slip to it when painting it on the skin and it's not too thick.
-At the inner corner of my eye, on the bottom near the tear duct, a small amount of product that transferred to the skin midway through the day. This is not an uncommon place for a product to transfer/run because of the amount of moisture near the tear duct. I simply used a q-tip to remove the product.
-This is a product I will use both personally and professionally. This product wore for 15 hours without budging. All the pictures here were taken at the end of the 15 hour day!
*Because this product is so new it can only be found in select markets. Nigel Beauty Emporium is the only place that I know of in LA that sells this line of cosmetics. This store one of the amazing make up stores that I use when I'm purchasing products for my kit. You can use the Inglot Cosmetics website to research their products. If you're local, head on over to Nigel's or place an order because they literally ship make up supplies all over the world!
If you try this product, let me know. I'd love to hear your reviews on it!
