I WAS SENT THIS PRODUCT FOR FREEEE. IS THAT CLEAR ENOUGH FOR YOU?
I feel like it’s been ages since I’ve done any form of make-up review. For those of you that are new to my tribe (gross, I can’t believe I actually said that. I hate myself a bit now), we need to make a few things clear:
- I am not a beauty blogger
- I am not trying to be a beauty blogger
- I don’t wear much makeup on a day to day basis
- I promise never to call you my tribe again.
So, this review is from a very average woman in her mid-30’s who doesn’t wear loads of makeup, isn’t particularly bothered about high-end expensive makeup but likes to make an effort for special occasions.
You could say my style is slightly unkempt, mostly. That’s my niche, I guess. I’ve had that feedback before too, from I guess I was dating hahahahaha.
So it’s probably not surprising to you that when I am selecting makeup, I want easy to use, long-lasting and good value products that re-purchase again and again. I have no interest in trying loads of new products – just knowing what works for me, knowing a product is reliable and sticking with it.
My usual go-to is the Maybelline lasting drama gel liner.
Esqido Gel Pen Eyeliner has all the same qualities as my favourite eyeliner. It’s not liquid, so I don’t find it hard to apply. It’s not a pencil, so I don’t have to faff about sharpening it – it’s in a twist to push up case. EASY.
There are two shades – it comes in black and brown, it’s smudge-resistant and it lasts all day. I can confirm this is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God (about it lasting all day – if you’re getting distracted from the point by all my stupid babble). It also didn’t smudge, but then again I didn’t rub my eyes. I also didn’t use a primer because obviously I am way too lazy for that.
It’s water-resistant which is handy for us living in the UK. If it doesn’t rain at least once a day then we think we are #blessed.
Other MASSIVE pros of the Esqido gel liner eyeliner are that it’s not tested on animals and it’s free from all that nasty stuff like formaldehyde and parabens.
The price point isn’t bad either – I mean it’s not as cheap as high-street brands (I’d expect to pay around £6 for a liner). It’s.. well, actually I’m not going to tell you the price. You can visit Esqido and see for yourself!
It’s alright, I’m not getting paid for any clicks.
Yeah, so I think I’ve said everything I want to say. Scroll down to see me modelling the product. Don’t worry, I won’t be quitting my day job.
