Gel or Liquid Eyeliner?

Personally, I don't like using liquid eyeliner. It’s too hard to work with and smears everywhere but where I want it. I’d rather use gel eyeliners instead and this new way to apply it is genius!

Ok, so if you find liquid eyeliners difficult to apply - especially on mature eyelid skin that’s loose, crinkly, or bumpy. But you like the polished look of liquid liners, consider using a gel eyeliner instead. Why?

Well here are several reasons:

  • Gel liners give you the same polished look as liquid liners, without the mess or smearing.
  • You don’t need a steady hand to apply a gel liner.
  • Because gel is thicker than liquid, you can apply it in small dashes for exact precise placement (see the new "how to apply eyeliner" tutorial link below).
  • Gel liners thicker consistency also works well for mature upper eyelid skin that tends to be thin, crinkly, or loose.
  • And most important, you’ll never have to stretch the eyelid to apply gel liners (see the new "how to apply eyeliner" tutorial link at the bottom of this page).

Best gel eyeliner

Mommy Makeup Gel Eyeliner with Talon Pointed Brush

Hands down the best eyeliner gel – in my humble opinion – is Stay Put Gel Eyeliner by Mommy Makeup.

These gel eyeliners were created by award-winning makeup artist, Debra Rubin-Roberts.

She created theses for the woman on a budget, in a hurry, and to compliment all skin tones.

I like these eyeliner gels for several reasons:

  1. It’s tear proof. I’ve never been able to wear any colored eye pencil without irritation. Even expensive hypoallergenic ones! But, I can apply this gel liner on the inside rims of my upper and lower lids without any tearing or irritation whatsoever.  
  2. It’s waterproof, but doesn’t dry right away, so it goes on silky smooth. This eliminates the need to stretch or pull the skin.  And, it gives time (about 30 seconds) to fix any mistakes. Even though that doesn’t happen very often because the brush applicator makes it very easy to apply.
  3.  The makeup quality eyeliner brush is pointy and thin which makes it easy to use. It wipes off clean and easy.
  4. Lots of beautiful colors to choose from and are especially suited for mature skin tone.

Gel eyeliner colors

Mature skin looks best with softer colors and Stay Put Gel offers a ton of colors to compliment any skin tone. 

black orchid gel eyelinerblack orchid - my favorite eye gel color

There are 11 beautiful shades to choose from and all are very soft and almost muted so they are perfect for mature skin tones.

These are not crazy bright colors that teens would wear!

The colors range from from black orchid, deep rich browns to soft eggplant.

And recently came out with a beautiful royal blue color that works great on almost all skin tones. That's my on my next order.....

So, if you’ve been struggling to get the right look with a liquid eyeliner, consider a gel liner.

They’re a lot easier to use, especially Debra’s Stay Put Gel Liners. And they last forever and won’t dry out (as long as you remember to put the cap back tightly after each use).
