Review of Essence Gel Eyeliner - London Baby! by 1017
I gave this color a review listing of its own because IMO, it is that perfect. London Baby, I guess, at first glance would be considered a deep charcoal gray, but it is almost more of a charcoal taupe. It is like a soft black, with hints of brown and gray. Fabulous color...so intriguing.
I get bored of plain black liners. I have very dark black lashes naturally. I usually use MAC Blitz & Glitz, but was looking for an easier (color wise), less forceful liner that would thicken my lash line, but not look like I was wearing makeup (kind of my summer easy breezy goal). My MUA friend rec'd this liner in this shade to me. I bought London Baby and the black color to be safe. I have only used the black once since purchase...but LB is used all the time! It is perfect for a soft thick lash line with or without mascara. My bent liner brush doesn't work with this gel liner as well as it does with my MAC, so I use a small pointy, but soft tipped brush from Sonia Kashuck to apply (almost like an old fashioned pen tip shape).
These are sold at Ulta and are dirt cheap. London Baby is an amazing color and definitely worth the $3! I am NW20, with almost black hair, brown eyes.
