MAC Rebeleyes Gel Liner
As much as I love eyeliner, I have yet to find one that I’d stay absolutely faithful to.
Of course, one of my favorites has to be Stila All Day Waterproof Eye Liner but I do have to say that with frequent use, the felt tip loses a bit of its preciseness over time. I also really like using gel liners, because I love having that control that they allow. There is only one problem with them; they dry out rather quick. That’s when I usually use some eye drops or Argan oil, but it’s also an additional step that I have to take each time I do my makeup which can be a pain. That is why I got really excited that MAC released a gel liner in a pen; MAC Rebeleyes Gel Liner:
“Now introducing a whole new take on ebony eyes. Our innovative Rebeleyes Gel Eye Liner serves up the extreme long-wear of gel liner with the ease of a pen. The pigmented non-staining ink is delivered through a sleek, easy-to-use click pen with a precision that could rival a calligrapher’s quill. Its unique flocked tip feels luxurious as it hugs the lash line and coats eyes with bold streaks of matte colour.”

What I love about it:
-the color is intense and insanely black, which is just how I like my eyeliner to be
-very matte finish
-it’s amazing at getting in between the lashes and lining the lash line
-it has a creamy and very long-lasting formula
-because it’s a click-pen, the gel liner is never dry, as you only dispense how much you want to use
What I didn’t love about it:
-this cannot be used with the same ease as liquid pen eyeliners; you need to be careful how much product you dispense. Because this is a gel formula, if too much product is dispensed and applied directly on your lash line, it leaves big blots of gel liner behind.
-as creamy and smooth the formula is, I didn’t find this liner to be too easy to use. If you’re like me and prefer your eyeliner to be on the thinner side, then you’d definitely need to be careful while applying this.
-when I said that this eyeliner is long-lasting, I meant it. I found it difficult to remove even with an oil-based makeup remover. Now, I don’t really want to say that this is something that I don’t like about this liner because who doesn’t like a long-lasting makeup product, but like I said, it can be difficult to remove.
So what is my final verdict? To be honest, I’m not too sure myself. I think that because I’ve never used a gel liner in a pen before, I still need to get used to it a little bit. There are so many things that I love about MAC Rebeleyes Gel Liner, like the intense matte finish, but I also don’t think that it’s as precise as I was hoping it would be. I’ll definitely continue to use and see if there perhaps is a trick to using it.
Have any of you guys used a gel liner in a pen before? What type of eyeliner do you find easiest to use?
