[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] After watching an on-line chat between Genevieve and make up artist (and friend) Caroline Barnes, I wanted to try something that Caroline recommended – Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel. Used on the waterline, it has a reputation for being one of the long stayers and an alternative to kohl.
The gel itself is ultra, ultra black – quite unnerving actually to use such a densely pigmented shade in such a hard-to-get-right area! It’s loose though, not waxy feeling, and believe me, a little goes a very long way. I don’t have the ideal brush for it but I used an old Marc Jacobs brush and it worked quite well.
At the same time, I tried the Revlon Colorstay Creme Eyeshadow in Caramel which is the easiest swipe and go shadow I’ve come across in a while.
It comes with its own brush which probably isn’t necessary but perhaps handy if you’re out and about and need to top up. It’s a very soft texture – I don’t have very oily lids but if I did, I’d use a primer before applying. In terms of stay, I find it pretty good – it dries on the lid and doesn’t stay soft. When I touch it with a finger on my lid, nothing comes away.
Here they both are. Caramel has a metallic element to it but it’s not ‘frosty’. I like it on me and I like it with the liner.
The Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel Review is usually £14, but on offer for £12 at Sephora HERE, and Caramel is £6.99 also at Sephora HERE.
