Eye liner is a staple in many makeup bags and if you are anything like me, my makeup drawer is full of literally about 20 different types of eyeliners. Everything from a cake liner to a pen liner. My hunt for the perfect, long wearing, easy to use and waterproof liner was a long one, but finally it is over.
The Inglot AMC eyeliner in number 77 is a matte back eyeliner, with the most intense pigmentation. This liner creates a seriously blacker than black line opaque line, that stays put all day. I mean it doesn’t move.I have worn it from one end of the day to the other and it is still perfectly in place by the time I go to take my makeup off. Not only does it stay put on the lid, but it doesn’t move from the waterline. I mean not one bit. To me this is actually the most amazing thing ever, because most of the time when liner is applied to the water line it disappears very quickly.
Another bonus is, it is absolutely smudge proof. I mean, I don’t know about you, but there is many times I have applied liner and ended up with it half way down my cheeks during the day. Not a pretty sight at all. This doesn’t happen with the Inglot liner. That perfect winged liner that you applied first thing in the morning while half asleep, stays perfect all day long.
I found the Inglot Gel liner easy enough to apply, but it doesn’t have a slight tendency to drag on the lind, but when used together with Inglot Duraline, it went on like a dream. What’s Duraline I hear you ask? Duraline is an oily solution that can be used to get pigmentsto stay on the eyes, make eyeshadow into a liner and it also makes gel liner much more liquidy and easier to apply. It dilutes it down to a much easier to work with consistency, without losing any of the pigmentation. I mean when you use Duraline with the gel liner, the liner goes way easier. It doesn’t pull on the eyes, but instead glides on perfectly. Or as perfectly as my shaky hand will allow.
There is one downside to the Inglot gel liner, and that is, it is an absolute curse to get off. I mean no matter what I do there is always some left on my eyes and I end up looking like a Gremlin when I get out of the shower. To me this is a small price to pay, as it shows just how waterproof the liner really is.
The liner comes in a small plastic tub and it contains a serious amount of liner. There is enough here to last you for months and months, if you wore liner every single day.
I have used the Mac Fluidline for years and while I do like it, it just doesn’t go on as easily, last as long, or give as intense a line as the Inglot gel liner.
While I have tried many different brushes for applying this liner, I find that the Blank Canvas E28 brush is the best one. It has the perfect amount of stiffness, that it allows for even the shakiest hand to get a near perfect winged liner.
The Inglot AMC gel liner costs €15 and can be purchased at any Inglot store. Trust me, if you are an eyeliner fan you need this in your life. Trust me, you will love it and thank me that I am making you buy this.
