Cream and Gel Liner Reviews and Comparisons

Hello again readers~

So for the last bit for today, is the comparisons and swatches of Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner in Black, and Wet n Wild Cream Liner in Black!



They both come in containers like this. The Maybelline Gel Liner comes in a sleek container, while Wet n Wild comes in a, dare I say it, wild container, with a rounded top. So it sits upside down, which is good for the product to stay moist on top.

(Photo is after I rubbed at each one over ten times HARD!)

Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner

Pros:
  • Comes in a stylish container
  • Comes with an amazing brush
  • Product last a long time (both in the container and on the eyes!)
  • Bold pigment (more of a matte color though)
Cons:
  • A drier constancy, and you sometimes have to go over it twice, or even three times to make sure you have covered everything.
  • Does smear if you rub at it, and will rub off easily.
  • Needs an oil based remover to remove fully.
Overall: 5/5

This liner is great! It's not too expensive, but it does breach that $10 cheap limit. The brush is one of the best eyeliner brushes I have used, and gives amazing results every time. The only flaw is that the formula is made a bit dry, so it sometimes needs a bit of touching up.



Wet n Wild Cream Liner

Pros:
  • CHEAP! It's only 4 dollars at CVS.
  • It's very creamy, which makes it really easy to line the eyes.
  • Easy to get to.
  • Doesn't rub off very easily.
  • Product lasts a long time ( both in the container and on the eyes!)
Cons:
  • Doesn't come off easily, and needs an oil based remover to be removed completely.
  • The brush that comes with it is not very good at all at distributing the product.
Overall: 5/5
This is one of my favorite liners of all time. It just doesn't budge all day long! It stays where it is at. I don't really like the brush at all though, because all it is good for is tight-lining the upper lash line, but the formula is so smooth and creamy it more than makes up for it.


My pick?
I would go with the Wet n Wild Cream Liner. The results are so much better, the pigment is bolder, and you just can't beat the price of 4 dollars! Plus it lasts you such a long time, even if you wear it every day!

Thank you for reading~
