He Shows Me He Knows Me, Every Inch Of My Tar Black Soul: Keeping the Pin-Up Alive With Autograph's Gel Liner

I do love my liners. And recently I've tried all sorts, from pen liners, to transfers, kohls and coloured liners. One thing I haven't put on the blog are any gel liners. There are two reasons for this. Firstly my liner love has been a relatively new thing, and secondly, the one gel liner I bought on a whim seemed to leave huge black transfer marks on my upper lid which meant it got relegated to the bin. So as you can see this isn't too surprising that it hasn't appeared thus far.

The issue I have with liners is they seem to either press off and smudge all over my eyes making me look like Alice Cooper, or they flake off and are gone within half an hour. I've tried many different types, all telling me they're long lasting but I end up having to take most liners out with me to top them up as they are usually off half way through a night out. So when the nice folks from M&S Autograph asked me if I'd like to try their Ultimate Wear gel liner and I thought, 'right ok, this will be a good test'. So my liner arrived and here it is.

Nice little pot, clean design which always goes down well with me.

Here's a little product shot so if you're looking for it in store you'll know what it looks like.

So I tried it, what's the verdict?

Where the hell have they been hiding this? It has not budged from my eyes all day! 

Hello serious winged liner

Me trying and failing to do pin up!

So the verdict, I'm really impressed, I would definitely consider buying more gel liner now I've also been pleased with how black this liner is. Often liners that are meant to be black can be a charcoal grey when they went on but this is a really true black. Well done Autograph!

So have you guys tried gel liner?

Much Love

Sara, of course I will I'll maybe do a wee tutorial post :). I couldn't get it off with my wipes last night lol I think I used too much so I got a little imprint when i rubbed it. But the tiny bit you need to use this pot will last forever! Don't use too much is my message.
