I love my Maybelline Gel eyeliner but after a little panic in which it vanished (the suitcase stole it!) I finally opened my FashionistA. I’d been saving it until I’d ran out of Maybelline but it’s day had come.
I love the packaging. It admittedly does look a little cheap and chatty, BUT, it is cheap and cheerful so I don’t mind. It almost has the look of nail varnish doesn’t it?!
The lid is absolutely genius. The top pulls off and snaps back in on itself to create a mini, portable eyeliner brush! It’s great for keeping in your travel bag or handbag for quick touch ups without having to lug around brushes. I do choose to use my own liner brushes with the gel liner but I have used the built in brush which works well. It’s also handy for ladies without a mammoth brush collection. Good thinking to include one that you aren’t likely to lose.
I love the jet black gel inside the pot. I have often said I find the maybelline one a little too gel-y and it needs to be set quickly with black shadow to stop it transferring to my brow bone. The FashionistA liner is a little more solid and substantial which means I get a little longer to line before worrying about transfer and it doesn’t need setting as much which is a bonus in my book!
For such a bargain price, I can’t fault this liner and now that I have found my Maybelline Liner… I have continued to use this one.
Being honest, I generally only wear eyeliner when I am either doing a heavy black smokey eye or wearing false lashes and in the instance of lashes, this gives a strong inky black line to help hide the band of the lashes. Perfect!
FashionistA is available solely from Superdrug.
