Bobbi Brown's long-wear gel eyeliner comes in a small glass pot and glides on easily with a thin, flat makeup brush. The eyeliner has a gel-like texture, which makes the application process really easy: If you're going for an everyday, basic look, all you need is a few dabs across your eyelid, whereas a more dramatic line or even cat-eye is easily attainable with a thicker scoop on the brush. The eyeliner slides like liquid but doesn't smudge, and the amount in the pot has lasted me over a year.
Perhaps the best perk of this product is its durability. I've had good cries, intense Spins, and long days with this baby still lining my eyelids. That said, Bobbi Brown doesn't kid around when they promise "long lasting," so careful when applying if you wear contacts—any sudden movements can leave you with sticky black spots on your lenses.
