I’m super fussy when it comes to eyeliners. I like rich colour and soft formulas, and I hate smudging. Since I tend to wear liners in my top waterline, I like a formula which sticks around and keeps my eyes defined all day.
When I got the chance to try Aerin’s newest Cool Gel Eyeliner in both Essential Brown and in Black, I jumped at the chance! I love the Aerin brand – it’s effortlessly glamorous, and all of the products I’ve tried go straight into my regular rotation.
I have to say, I think I fell in love with these two before I even got to swatching. They are so sleek looking and you just twist the bottoms to sharpen the pencils.
For the past few months I have really hopped on the brown eyeliner wagon. Since I’m blonde, it looks softer than my usually black, and I’m really into the ‘no makeup’ look right now.
The formula is velvety soft and smooth, and it coats my waterline in a single swipe. I’m obsessed with the cool brown colour which gives a perfect amount of definition to my eyes. I’m also obsessed with the slightly metallic finish – it gives my eyes another dimension.
When I’m getting more dressed up or formal, I still rely on black liners for a more dramatic look. Aerin’s offering is gorgeously inky, and the colour glided on smoothly and evenly.
Like Essential Brown, Black has a slightly metallic finish which gives a lovely shine to eyes, and it is a great pencil for use when I’m amping up my look. I just can’t get over how incredible the formulas are!
The pencils will be released in September and will cost £19.00 each
