The credit for introducing this brand to me goes to Komal from delhifashionblogger. She raved about this eyeliner in her many videos and this seems to be her favorite gel liner. Moreover i love her perfect winged eye liner and the precise application. So when benefit cosmetics posted on their instagram that they have restocked this liner, my hapiness knew no bounds and without wasting much time i raided Sephora store and brought this beauty home. I also got Benefit Mascara which i will be reviewing soon( BTW i am wearing this mascara in pics below).
It took me 2-3 applications to get the hang of it,afterwards I felt no issue. It is one of the best eyeliner to get the perfect winged eyeliner. The unique tip make sure that you draw a precise line closer to the lash line. The only downside I faced is that the texture of the eyeliner crumbles whenever I try to layer it. So the ideal approach is to draw small lines and then join them, do not go overboard with layering. I am mentioning some important facts below which would help you all to have a better understanding of the product. This Gel Liner is Pricey so read thoroughly before making your decision 😉 It sure is a lengthy post but I assures you that it is worth a read 🙂
Lets come to the most important feature of this product, its Tip.I am including a diagram to give a better idea of the tip.
This accuflex tip was designed keeping in mind all eye shapes and the flexible material of the tip allows you to glide across the curve of eyelids.
How does it work?
1. Remove the orange tip protector.
2. Twist the base to push up the gel until it reaches the tip.
3. Start from the center or outer corner of the eyes, if excess product had come out from the tip. Otherwise there is no mendatory rule.
4. Once you are done, wipe off the tip and put the orange tip protector back. This is not mandatory, i put it to make sure the gel liner does not dry off.
Why is it raved all around the world?
Mostly because of its unique tip, get black matte finish and very user friendly packaging which is really easy to carry in a handbag. If you look across the eyeliners available in market, the wooden ones or Pencil ones smudge easily and wear off quickly, Liquid eyeliners are kind of outdated now and looks shiny. Moreover Liquid eyeliners are not everyone’s cup of tea, most people can’t get used to the liquid formula. Gel liners that comes in a pot are very difficult to carry around, moreover they need brush and its very difficult to apply them on-the-go. Felt tip ones, well….they dry out very quickly.
So here is the Benefit – They’re Real! Push-Up Liner, which is blackest of black liner, gives Matte Finish, Smudge-proof and Long Lasting 🙂
