guerlain eyeliner

Luxe Eyeliners generally don't appeal to me, I really struggle to pay a lot of money for eyeliner despite the fact it's the bare bones of my usual look. I very rarely go without eyeliner these days so whenever I get a new eyeliner to try I always jump at the chance in the quest to finding the holy grail of eyeliners. I've come across some I've loved like the Pixi Lash Line Ink, as well as some I've hated like the Rimmel Gel Eyeliner.

Now, along comes the Guerlain Eyeliner! It is very black, one of the blackest black eyeliners I've ever come across. I know thats weird to describe an eyeliner like that but if you're a keen eyeliner fan you know what I mean. Some eyeliners pull slightly grey black as they are worn and dry down, but this stays super black on me. The finish is slightly glossy while also being quite matte at the same time! I personally feel it gives a very refined elegant cat eyeliner look. In all it looks highly pigmented, refined and very very sleek. I personally quite like the brush and I've got on quite well with it. I don't normally like the brushes like this because they are so fine and flimsy and I like my liner thicker. However it was very simple to use and the long handle made application very easy. It's really simple to remove as well, all I do is soak a cotton pad in Bioderma and wipe off. It doesn't flake or dry throughout the day and I found it to pretty much last all day.

The packaging reminds me of Old Hollywood, something that wouldn't look out of place on a screen starlet like Marilyn Monroe's dresser. It's beautiful and so luxe. I think thats one of my main loves about Guerlain, everything feels so expensive and beautiful. Their packaging is just so on point.

In all, I do like this eyeliner and probably will continue to use it. I really do genuinely like it, but have to admit I'm not bowled over with it. It didn't wow me like no other eyeliner has ever done before. I doubt it would be something I'd have bought myself. The price tag is just too high for a eyeliner no matter how pretty it looks unfortunately. It's lovely, but you can get something similar for a lot less.

  4. I'm a big eyeliner fan but I think I'd really struggle to spend £24 when High Street equivalents are just as good. I do agree the packaging looks amazing though and I love the Guerlain bronzers!

  7. It is pricey,
    But I like how black it is, I hate wishy-washy colours so it seems really great in that sense.

  9. Your blog is so aesthetically nice! The advert, your title and your hair is pink! Intentional or not, it looks gr8! Haha.

    The deal breaker for me with most eye liners is when it kind of melts into the crease of your eyelid from blinking during the day - it ain't cute!

    Love your blog.

  10. The packaging is very luxurious and it is very pricey. I normally go for eyeliner pens, because they hold less product and is less messy when applying.
    Lovely blog post thought

    1. What eyeliner pen do you normally use? I've been thinking of actually trying that instead of gel but not really sure which one to pick up first

  11. Of course as soon as I commented that, the ads had to change. Kind of irrelevant now... but still looks cute!

    Love your pink hair!

  15. Love the packaging but I still can't use gel/liquid eyeliners! Just so used to using kohl pencils that I cannot get the hang of it and always make a mess.

  16. The packaging is gorgeous - quite unique for a liquid eyeliner. I agree though, the price tag is too high! x

  19. Really good review..I've been looking for a black liquid eye-liner that's also waterproof and up until now I haven't yet..I recently bought the Sephora one, but it's not waterproof and taking it off is a bitch..but I'll give it some more tries before I make up my mind =P

  20. Most beautiful packaging ever but like you said, I don't think I'd pay that much for it. I don't think I could justify it, especially when my £2.99 ones do the job well enough. Love your new pink ombre! xxx

  21. Look lovely, but the price tag I must admit too is very steep! Looks lovely on you tho!

  22. this eyeliner looks absolutely beautiful! the packaging and the swatch on your eye! i've not seen an eyeliner bottle like this before nor have i seen one so black! i really really want to treat myself to this as i don't own a liquid/gel eyeliner nor have i owned one before, only pencil ones, and i'm not really a fan of those so this one seems so perfect for me! :) X

  23. It does look very black indeed, I hate it when you get a grey-ish eyeliner when it's supposed to be black! x

  28. I just think that the bottle looks really cool and unusual.
    It does look lovely on you though, and as you say, incredibly black!
