Bobbi Brown Long-wear Gel Eyeliner Caviar Ink : Review, Swatch and EOTD

 

Everyone remembers their first purchase from a Luxury/High end brand. Bobbi Brown Gel liner in Caviar Ink is one such purchase for me, more coveted because its not available in India yet (Yes, I always add the ‘yet’ with this phrase because I’m hoping these brands would enter India soon!)

Price : $22 = approx. Rs 1100-1150

Quantity : 3 g

My take on the product

 

Bobbi Brown Long wear Gel eye liner comes in a standard gel liner tub packaging. The tub is transparent while the screw on cap is a glossy black with brand name written across. I love the sleek. classy, minimalist packaging of Bobbi Brown products and this one is no exception! This doesn’t come with a brush so one would need a liner brush to apply the product.

The product has a dense cream texture, its less creamy than MAC Fluidlines but more pigmented. I quite like the slightly stiffer texture as I feel it gives better control and precision. The liner allows a few seconds for one to play with it – layer/smudge etc and then it sets to a waterproof/smudgeproof finish.  Once it sets, it does not budge at all and comes off only with an oil based makeup remover.  Once applied, I am completely sorted for the whole day, it stays on strong until removed – be it 6 hours or 16! Because of the well pigmented formula, one needs a tiny amount of product to get the true color and 3 g of product is going to last a long time.

The shade Caviar Ink :

Caviar Ink is described as a deep black-brown.  Its  a softer alternative to black and is great for everyday as well as party looks as its neither stark black nor too soft. While I love black liners, they can be a little stark at times while this looks natural and polished. The finish is completely matte which makes it suitable for work wear too. Its a no-brainer shade, the kind you can wear everyday which looks great with everything! Women with brown hair/lighter hair would love this as opposed to black!

Overall Verdict

 

Bobbi Brown Gel liners are a cult-favorite! With excellent long-wear formula and amazing color pay-off, these are a must-have! The texture is less creamy as compared to MAC Fluidlines which gives better control and precision. Once applied, they do not budge and stay on for until removed with an oil-based makeup remover. Caviar Ink is a deep brown-black, not quite brown but a softer black which looks quite natural and is quite versatile.

Highly recommended!

    1. I’m so drawn to the neon orange and pink after seeing the images! Do try one of those and review it, I’d love to see how they actually look in person!

    1. You mean the Neons and Nudes? You never know till you try, some shade might just click though neon shades are difficult to wear in everyday, especially where we live!
