/ Beauty, Make Up

When Benefit realised their gel liner pen, I thought, I have seen this before, and I had with Maybeline. Its a twist up pen with a grey rubber tip that’s meant to make applying gel liner easier.

I like this pen it, lasts for ages on the eye and doesn’t smudge, if you don’t use too much product that is. The trick is not to use too much product, twist just enough for it to be poking out the top of the grey point.

I’m not sure if it really makes it any easier to be honest. A pot of gel liner and a good small slanted brush I think can give you more accuracy, as there is more control over the amount of product being distributed,

The best is the convenience of not having 2 separate products, but having it all in a handy pen, great for travelling.

My verdict, a cool little pen, and much cheaper than the high end offer at just £8.99 but you still need to know what your doing with eyeliner, it’s by no means a cheats version, but if you can master a pot of gel, I would probably opt for that over this pen.

Available from Boots £8.99
