I love pencil/kohl eyeliner but my lids don't love them as much. Pencil/kohl will smudge unlike liquid eyeliners. Liquids are a bit hard to handle especially if you don't have sturdy hands and your eyes blinks a lot so that will leave us with gel. Gel eyeliners is not as runny as liquid. Sometimes it smudges, sometimes it won't. depends on the condition of your lids. If it's too oily, it will probably bleed a little after a few hours but it is definitely easier to handle compared to liquids.
Taking into consideration and after I read a review that compares the quality of gel eyeliners between some well known brands including MAC cosmetics and MUFE, I put Inglot's gel eyeliner on top of my list, in case I ran out of eyeliner.
My liquid eyeliner dried up so I dropped by Inglot and bought their gel eyeliner, conveniently the only store in Johor Bahru is located at my office building.
I've been using it on days when I need my eyeliner to stay put for a very long time, preferably from 8.00am to 11.00pm and I am totally satisfied. It is the darkest black eyeliner I've ever tried and 90% smudge proof. Like any other eyeliners (except for liquid), it leaves a line on my overlapped lids but only after 12 hours and it's barely noticeable.
Is the money paid for the gel eyeliner well spent? Yes it is.
The only down side I can think of is the brush is sold separately. Somebody also pointed out that it is hard to remove. Maybe you will need an oil based make up remover. I use my MAC cleanse off oil, J&J baby oil is not really effective but I think Bifesta will work.
