REVIEW: Fanny Serrano Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner

        If you read my last Haul post , you know the reason why I bought this gel liner from Fanny Serrano Cosmetics. I had a hard time choosing between this and Maybeline Lasting Drama Gel-liner. Two main reasons why I bought this one is first, it's cheaper and second, my boyfriend told me to support Filipino products which I think is correct. I've heard/read a lot of feed backs about this product.  Most of them are positive but there are also some negative ones. Finally, I got the chance to give it a try.
[ This is just my opinion and based from my experience on using the product. ]

Php 225.00 for 4ml bottle, cheap compared to other gel liner brands.

After less than a week of using this product this is how it looks like (at least for me!) I don't know if it's just me but I always get too much amount on my brush so I have to put some back that's why my bottle is so messy. :(


I admit that I suck on applying eyeliner on my upper lash line especially with liquid eye liners but surprisingly I did pretty well on gel liner! 

After the gel liner dried, I rubbed it gently to see if it will smudge easily. I't didn't . 

Since it claims to be a long wear gel eyeliner I assumed that it' water proof and smudge proof . I also asked the sales lady if i'm correct and she said yes. I washed my hand with swatches w/o rubbing it.

After gently rubbing it and after putting it on running water .

Again, I gently rubbed it while it is still wet. In here you can see the smudging already.

But the real test was wearing it for the whole day.  I used the gel liner alone. No primer, no eye shadow, just foundation and powder.

after 14 hours..

I have oily lids as you can see in the picture. The eyeliner is still visible except for the 'winged' part.  And it did smudge especially on the outer corner of my eye. Maybe 14 hours is too long don't you think? I also used this on my cousin for her pictorial. I applied the make up around 7am in the morning and when she went home around 8 in the evening I didn't notice any smudging at all. 

to sum it all up:

what I like:
* it's cheap
* very easy to apply, it glides smoothly
* a little goes a long way! a bottle can last for a long time (for personal use)
* intense color
* dries fast
* i't doesn't smudge easily
* water proof. 

what I don't like:
* doesn't come with a brush unlike other gel liners
* smudges on oily lids/not oil resistant.
* gives me panda eyes when I apply it on my lower lash line

Will I re-purchase?? yes! I think the product is good enough for it's price. 

I wanna know your thoughts/experience about the product. Please leave a comment :)
