Bobbi Brown CAVIAR INK Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner Swatches and Review

Hands down, my favorite product from Bobbi Brown is the Long-Wear Gel Eye Liners.  I remember my first purchase of them years ago of Ivy Shimmer Ink and Black Mauve Shimmer Ink.  If you've been around for a few months, you may remember my review of the Caviar/Gold Dual Ended Eye Liner.  A product I loved, but that I didn't have a good reaction to as a contact lens wearer.  Determined to find a similar shade to the Caviar side of the Dual Ended Liner I turned to the Caviar Ink Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner.

What Sephora has to say about Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner:
What it is:
A best-selling, award-winning formula that makes lining your eyes like a pro easy.

What it does:
Get the precision of a liquid liner with the ease of a gel-based formula. The eyeliner glides on smoothly and precisely, then quickly dries down to a long-wearing, water-resistant finish.

What else you need to know:
Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner is an Allure Best of Beauty Award Winner.
Size: 0.1 oz






Caviar Ink (deep black-brown) is a muted black, and not exactly the color I was looking for.  Caviar the pencil was also described as a deep black-brown, but had more of a taupe grey aspect to it's color.

That being said, this is a great liner for every day.  You can pair it with just about everything and its formula is up to par with what I remember my other two Long-Wear Gel Eyeliners from years ago being.  It's headed into my daily makeup routine arsenal, and there it shall stay.

All-in-all, still a win, but not a home run.  I will find you, perfect shade! *shakes fist*

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliners retail for $21 at Sephora, and $22 everywhere else for some reason.

I use one of essence... it's really cheap (3-4€) but the black is amazing for me (:
