BOBBI BROWN Long-wear Gel Eyeliner
What It Is:
A true original. This award-winning long-wearing eyeliner offers the precision of liquid liner with the ease of a gel-based formula—all with 12 hours of waterproof and sweat- and humidity-resistant wear.
Why It's Different:
Highly pigmented, this gel formula delivers subtle to dramatic looks that are easy to apply, long-wearing, and won't smudge or fade.
How to Use:
Dip the tip of the Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush (sold separately) into Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, being sure to coat both sides of the brush. Wipe off any excess on a tissue. Working quickly, apply liner in short, even strokes close to the lash line, from the inner to the outer eye corner.

- "I have been using Bobbi Brown's long-wear gel eyeliner for over 10 years and I absolutely swear by it. I've tried others but nothing else can compare to the staying power. The color is deep and rich and stays put all day. It's easy to apply with a thin eyeliner brush and it works great as both a top and bottom liner. All the colors are gorgeous; I used to use the brown and the graphite but now I stick with the basic black. One pot lasts forever and it's worth every penny." in 620 reviews
- "I use this product almost daily and it does exactly what it's supposed to! It stays put all day and doesn't smudge once it's set. I love that it comes in so many colors. I love the graphite, denim and ivy. " in 240 reviews
- "This is my go to eyeliner for daily use.. It's creamy, and does not dry out easily. It goes on smooth for an all day wear. Not waterproof. I wish that it was more pigmented,a s the darkest black can appear to be a dark grey. Use with an angled brush for a perfect cat eye!" in 221 reviews
I don't know if it's because I love to paint, but I highly prefer using gel liner and a brush to apply eyeliner over a pencil or liquid pen. This may be due to the fact that my lashes are very sparse and spread apart, so I need a brush to be able to fill in between the bases of my lashes to achieve a good eyeliner look. I use a small angled eyeliner brush with synthetic hairs and I "tightline" just at the base of the lash without getting on the waterline.
Quick pro tip: NEVER tightline over your waterlines! There are important glands there that contribute to the tear film to help lubricate your eyes. Packing in product over those glands will clog them and may cause a gland dysfunction, irritation, contribute to Dry Eye Syndrome or even lead to an infection. Remember to properly cleanse your eyelid area daily with a gentle face soap to promote healthy tears for good eye health!
I do have some critiques though, I have to dab into the pot so many times it feels like. And then the other issue I’ve noticed recently is sometimes it will end up in my eyelid crease. I’m not sure if it’s because of what I wear it with but it is frustrating.
