There comes a point in your makeup wearing life that you’ve pretty much been there, done that, bought every conceivable type of product and package, and then some. And then something comes along to utterly shock you and prove that ingenuity is not dead!
That is exactly what I thought when I first realized Cailyn’s Gel Liner was a gel liner with a built-in brush and not a liquid liner.
I received this liner as part of the latest shipment from The Look Bag, and it was definitely a pleasant surprise. I mean, I was gasping and oohing and aahing for a full five minutes. It was that serious.
The package I received came with a loose shimmer powder and a loose glitter to incorproate with the gel and create a customized liner. It’s not clear if this is part of the purchase price, or an extra. Heck, you can do this same thing with your own glitters at home.
Now let’s talk performance.
At first glance the brush seemed like it would be too chunky. However, I find it produced a gorgeous, smooth line. To keep the brush free of gunk I suggest using a brush cleanser after each use.
The waterproof liner wears magnificently, not budging an inch during an afternoon that included two toddler tantrums and a trip to the gym.
I mixed the gel with the shimmer to get a slightly shimmery eye, as well. In lieu of the Cailyn makeup remover they suggest using to mix the shimmer and gel, I sprayed a bit of my e.l.f. Setting Spray.
This is gel liner AND a beauty sample program done right. I love that The Look Bag has given me the opportunity to test a brand that has never been on my radar and has me wanting to know more about the line. You can discover more about Cailyn on their website.
