Finally, a gel eyeliner that actually stays in place all day.
Up until now I’ve had a love/hate relationship with gel eyeliners, on one hand you have a lot of control while applying, you can create different effects with different brushes, and they were the only type of eyeliner I could create a wing with, while on the other hand I wasn’t atisfied with the gel eyeliners I tried. The first gel eyeliner I tried was the famous Blacktrack Fluidline by MAC, which always ended up beneath and around my eyes and refused to stay in place. The second gel eyeliner I tried was by E.L.F. also not a huge success, the eyeliner dried out without only a couple of weeks. I had almost given up hope on gel eyeliners when my rescue came in the form of the Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel Matte.
The Inglot eyeliner had been lying in my make-up stash for a while, I was so fed up with gel eyeliners that I almost forgot about it. A couple of months ago I decided to give it a try and it didn’t let me down.
Inglot Matte Collection AMC Eyeliner Gels come in small plastic tubs, far more travel friendly than the MAC Fluidline glass jars and the comparison doesn’t end there. Inglot gel eyeliners contain 5,5 grams of product while MAC Fluidlines only contain 3 grams of product and the best thing is that the Inglot eyeliner is cheaper. The Inglot eyeliner has a soft, creamy consistency that is easy to apply to the eyelid. The eyeliner dries very quickly and when it’s dry it’s waterproof and doesn’t smudge or crease and therefore this is also a great product to use on your waterline.
The only downside to this product is that it’s harder to remove than all the other eyeliners I’ve ever tried so you can’t really make mistakes. If you happen to make a mistake you must try correct it immediately because once this eyeliner dries down you can only remove it with make-up remover. At the end of the day the trick to remove this eyeliner is to let the make-up remover soak a bit into to eyeliner and then gently wipe it away. It’s the price you have to pay for having perfect eyeliner during the day.

I have nothing but positive things to say about this eyeliner. I’ve been using it for a while now and it hasn’t dried out or cracked. There are 20 colours to choose from and I’m thinking of getting another one. If there are any colours you recommend, please let me know.
