The Eyes Have It: Beauty People's Miss 100 Super Waterpoof Gel Liner Auto Pencil

I am a sucker for eyeliners and sales, and that's how I ended up with Beauty People's Miss 100 Super Waterpoof Gel Liner Auto Pencil.

I tend to use pen liners because my eyeshape doesn't really suit pencils. So why do I have these Beauty People's Miss 100 Super Waterpoof Gel Liner Auto Pencil? Blame it on the fact that they were on sale.

Besides, that sarcastic Snow White on the cap is ace. 

From memory, I purchased 1 and got 2 for free which was is a crazy good deal. Not to mention that it sounded too good to be true, so I wasn't expecting much quality wise to be honest.

From left to right in the above photo, I bought Glimmer Brown, Real Black and Glimmer Bronze. Both the glimmer shades have a hint of shimmer in it and the middle one is straight black.

I bought them thinking that these gel liners would be a nice alternative to the usual liquid pen liners I use. I prefer pen liners because their sharp tips helps to create a clean and neat line but I thought I'd start to mix things up with something creamier like a gel liner. 

Unfortunately, the tips aren't pointy enough for my eyelids. 

Luckily, these are perfect as eyeshadow pencils. 

I haven't found a use for Real Black yet but I'm liking Glimmer Bronze on my double eyelid and Glimmer Brown smudged inwards from the ends of my eyes. It's good enough to make me abandon using liquid eyeliner on most days.

Shock horror. I haven't gone out in public without liquid eyeliner for about 10 years now!

The combo has been foolproof for me and my Naked 1 palette is something I only reach for when I go out at night. These pencils are extremely easy to use and blend, so they're been great for busy mornings. The colours are creamy and have just the right amount of pigment to be worn at the office.

They're allegedly waterproof and smudgeproof. I've never cried with these pencils on (-_-) and I'd wager that they're about 80% smudgeproof. 

I'm really liking these liners. They're infinitely easier to blend than normal eyeshadows. They're also easier to take with you if you're travelling. I lugged around my Naked palette a fair bit last year and it wasn't the most convenient thing I had to do.

I might purchase some more shades some time down the track!

Have you used gel pencil liners before?
