Top 11 Gel Eyeliners Available In India with Reviews and Prices
An eyeliner is something which every girl loves in her makeup kitty! It not only opens up the eyes, but also enhances their beauty. From liquid to pencil to gel eyeliners, you get a lot of options to pick from as per your liking to draw your everyday winged eyeliner, cat eyeliner or for simply just lining the eyes. And then there are colored & glitter liners too, that just brighten up your day. I personally am a big fan of matte gel liners! These have an amazing formula & give a flawless finish. They are best applied with a brush to get a crisp precise line. Previously we only hand a handful options like Maybelline and MAC but now we have a plenty of budget and high end gel liners to choose from.
Gel liners are relatively long lasting and can also work as a base for eyeshadows. However, the common problem is that most of these tend to dry up soon in the pot, which can be really annoying. Thus, it is advised to store these upside down in order to prevent them from drying. And as far as the already dried out liners are concerned, you can always mix in some Inglot duraline or a couple of drops of baby oil to revive them. Now, let’s take a look at some of the best gel liners available in the Indian market today. Keep reading to find out more!
