It’s been a minute, but I’m back today with a Travel Exclusive Tuesday! This month’s feature is a product which isn’t exclusively available in the Duty Free, but predominantly so – I have seen it around online (on Amazon and QVC UK). The Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner Duo is a set of two full-sized Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel liners in the colours: Black Ink and Sepia Ink, along with a small travel sized liner brush.
Both liners are available individually but I found there to be value in the set. The individual pots retail for $25.00 BSD each in The Bahamas ($25.00 USD/£18.50) but the duo set me back $43.00 BSD, a $7.00 savings. I’ve never tried the Bobbi Brown long-wear gel liner formula before, and currently, I don’t have any gel liners in my collection – making this a rather useful purchase.
Bobbi Brown says: “This award-winning long-wearing eyeliner offers the precision of liquid liner with the ease of a gel-based formula—all with 12 hours of waterproof and sweat- and humidity-resistant wear”.
Sounds pretty good, huh? Living in the tropics, I’m all about anything that claims to be “sweat and humidity-resistant “.
Black Ink is your standard, matte black while Sepia Ink is a matte, rich, deep brown. I’ve only played around with the liners a few times, but I can see why they are so popular. The texture is creamy but lightweight and the formula quite easy to work with. I find that they remain wet just long enough to work with but dry quickly enough to avoid smudging. More importantly, lasting power is as promised – about a 12 hour day without budging (temperatures here being about 90F/32C with 62% humidity for the past few weeks).
Both Black and Sepia Ink possess decent pigmentation. Below, I’ve featured Sepia Ink with little else on the eye in order to highlight the liner itself. I did have some shots of Black Ink, but they seemed to have disappeared. But I did use it in my recent Independence Day eye tutorial here, if you want to see it in action.
Overall, I’m happy with my purchase and would recommend the gel liners if you’re in the market for a higher end product like this. If you’re already a fan and use the liners regularly, then scoring this duo would be a great deal. Look out for it in the duty free! Otherwise, Bobbi Brown offers an impressive range of 22 shades to choose from in the permanent line. I’m already eyeing up Black Scotch and a few of the others. 🙂
