In my previous post, I introduced you guys to this new makeup brand Nelf Cosmetics. Well, I’m back with another product review from the same brand. This time its their gel eyeliners. I got Nelf Cosmetics Gel Eye Liners in the shades black and dark brown. So, are these a hit or a miss product. Keep reading to find out.
Nelf Cosmetics is a relatively newer Indian brand. But their products are made in Germany. Also they are a cruelty free brand, so their products are not tested on animals. Double thumbs-up for that. I got some products from this brand to test out. One of them is Nelf cosmetics 3 in 1 Eye Smudger Pencil. Is this product a hit or a miss, keep reading to find out more.
Tips & Toes cosmetics has recently released their new 12 Hour Liqui-Liner.I couldn’t find much information on this product on their website. But this eyeliner is meant to last for at least 12 hours as per the name.

Oriflame Beauty Studio Artist Gel Eye Liner Review
About the product:
Oriflame Beauty Studio Artist Gel Eyeliner gives the precision line of liquid eyeliner for professional and smudge-free results. The smooth texture of the gel eye liner delivers rich color and even coverage and ensures long-lasting luring eyes for up to 24 hours. It comes with a slanted brush applicator that gives smooth and flawless effects.
Price: Rs. 449 for 3g. Available online on Amazon and through representatives.
I love the packaging of this gel liner. Even though its a glass jar, its so compact, light and travel friendly. You get 3 grams of product in the jar which I feel is reasonably considering the fact that gel eyeliners dry out quickly. The glass jar is sturdy too. I’ve dropped it multiple times and its still intact.
Oriflame Beauty Studio Artist Gel Eye Liner is not jet black but its build-able. You need to layer at least 2-3 coats for an intense look. Once applied, it dries quickly. If you want to apply 2-3 coats, make sure the first coat dries first. Otherwise the application might get messy.
The gel is creamy but not creamy enough for my liking. It is thicker in consistency. Although there is a plus side to it. This means the liner dries quickly and doesn’t smudge. Oriflame Beauty Studio Artist Gel Eye Liner glides easily without any tugging. However, I particularly find it harder to create a cat eye winged look with this liner. But for regular lining, it works best.
I don’t particularly like the brush that comes with it. The brush is the size of my thumb. I find it uncomfortable to use this brush due to its handle size. I wish the gel eye liner came with a longer brush, like the Maybelline gel eye liner brush. However, the small brush is good for touch-ups or when travelling.
The liner is smudge-free and waterproof, It stays on my oily eyelids for around 8 hrs. And on my waterline, it lasts longer than a regular kohl or kajal. Oriflame Beauty Studio Artist Gel Eye Liner needs to be removed with an oil based makeup remover.
Available online on Amazon
Does not irritate my eyes.
Does not smudge easily on upper eye lids.
Not jet black, requires 3 swipes.
Not creamy enough for a winged cat liner look.
Brush that comes with it isn’t of much use.
Overall: If you new at gel eye liners, definitely try out Oriflame Beauty Studio Artist Gel Eye Liner. Its affordable, not too creamy or messy and good for sensitive skin. It a great gel liner for beginners and long lasting too.
