Today’s product smackdown for you between the Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner and the Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Eyeliner. Gel eyeliners have increase in popularity over the last few years because of their diversity. They can be used not only to line the upper and lower lashes but work wonderfully on the waterline as well. What makes these so unique is their ability to glide on without pulling or tugging on the skin and have longer staying power than traditional eyeliner pencils. Gel eyeliners can create a bold and dramatic look with a thick line or multiple layers or a more natural line with a thin stroke. Everyone knows I love my Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner and have used it for quite a while now, recently however, I was introduced to the Maybelline Eye Studio gel liners and I thought I would do a product Smackdown for you to let you know which one I would recommend.
Bobbi Brown Gel EyelinerTrefoil)
Bobbi Brown’s gel eyeliner is renowned for their smooth consistency and ability to glide on smoothly. They come in a wide variety of shades, 14 to be exact, and are waterproof which means they work wonderfully in the waterline. The only down side to the Bobbi Brown gel eyeliners is the price. These run $22.00 for 0.1 oz. / 3 g. at which to me is a lot to pay.
Pros: Waterproof, great color selection
Where to Buy: Sephora | Amazon | eBay
Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Eyeliners
Maybelline gel eyeliners are quickly gaining popularity and it’s easy to see why. These glide on remarkably smooth and are very highly pigmented which makes it easy to get the desired color you want without having to go back over it multiple times. These don’t flake or smudge and are waterproof as well so these stay in the waterline without sliding. The only downside is the color range which as of right now is 4 colors. The price on this is extraordinarily better at $6.00 – $9.00 for 0.11 oz. depending on where you shop.
So I am going to have to give this SMACKDOWN to Maybelline! This is absolutely one of my new favorite products. The only downside is the color selection with 4 shades available. However, these work just as well as the Bobbi Brown gel eyeliners by being waterproof and staying in place and not sliding. For the price these are unbeatable. I love these so much that I am going to be switching over and using the Maybelline eyeliners and just use my Bobbi Brown when I need a green or blue shade to go to. At least until Maybelline comes out with a few more shades…hint, hint. I hope this smackdown helped you decide which one is best for you. As always stay happy and healthy!
