On a recent trip to the Bobbi Brown counter in the South Coast Plaza, I was looking for a new look for my eyes. I have big brown eyes that I have no idea how to put eyeshadow on. Literally. I try over and over, and I can never make anything look right. Plus, I have no time to get ready in the morning, so I needed a quick look that would look professional and last for my crazy hours at work. Lauren was there to help me, and she quickly showed me a quick look using only 2 eyeshadow colors that even I can't mess up.
Then when it was time for eyeliner, she suggested the gel eyeliner. I have only ever used eyeliner pencil, so this eyeliner was a new experience for me. Applied with a small brush, the eyeliner gets worked into the base of the lashes. When applied thickly on its own, it looks like liquid eyeliner (not a look I have tried yet). But when a second line of dark eyeshadow is applied over it, it looks just like regular eyeliner. That stays put for my entire on-call work day without budging. That's 30 hours! Plus, the eyeliner comes in a huge range of colors, so there is sure to be a color for everyone. I bought the brush as well, which Lauren says is a shiny synthetic that will be less likely to dry out the pot of eyeliner.
