Review: Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel #77

Inglot gel eyeliner number 77 black

After reaching a makeup milestone last month - in which I completely used up an entire pot of gel liner - I asked everyone on Instagram which liner to try next. Not because the Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner isn't great (hello! I used it all up!) but because I just wanted to try something new. The replies were almost unanimous in recommending this one, which has accumulated a sort of 'cult status' with bloggers, makeup artists and makeup lovers worldwide.

Firstly this isn't too difficult to get your hands on here in UK which is great and refreshing. I believe there are a few stores scattered over the country though I've only been to the 2 Westfield stores here in London. This is a little bit dearer than my Maybelline pot but I was willing to dish out a little extra for the promise of the blackest, most reliable gel liner out there.

The brand describes the product as, "long lasting, smudge proof and crease proof" and I'm happy to say, in my experience, I can completely attest to these assertions. Once you draw on your liner with this bad boy, it's not going anywhere. I did sometimes get smudging with Maybelline, or if I accident touched it, it would smear. With this, I don't get that! And I'm an eye toucher! I don't get any of that cracking off business either which with the Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner I did. I'd do my liner but somehow within a couple of hours there would be gaps in it. The Inglot gel liner really does live up to its claims. 

The thing that strikes me the most is the texture of the product in the pot itself because it is much softer and creamier than either the Maybelline or the Bobbi Brown. I literally only have to dab the tip of the brush in to pick up the product and can line away with ease. There's no dragging on the lid and I don't end up missing spots. I guess it has to do with the fact that this formula is more creamy while the other two were dryer.

And it is black. Like literally black. There's no hint of blue or grey or anything with this. It's weird because I always thought my Maybelline one was pretty darn black, but really it wasn't. This. Is. Black.

My only criticism of the product is the packaging. I've grown used to the decadence of tiny little glass jars housing my gel liners (except for a dabble I had with Barry M Gel Liner but we won't talk about that ermm...experience) but this comes in a much cheaper looking and feeling plastic pot with a plastic lid. There's nothing wrong with it actually but it is my personal preference that my gel liners should come in glass packaging. And really, for the price, it would have been more fitting too. But really, it's my only gripe and a rubbish one at that.

I really am glad I listened to all the wonderful voices and strayed from my usual with this. If you are looking to try a gel liner or you need to pick up a new one, or indeed if you are like me and just want to try something different for a change, I highly recommend you getting your hands on this. It comes in a range of shades. As long as the formula is consistent across the colours, then you're in for a treat.

I hope you enjoyed my review. Please feel free to leave me a comment about the liner if you've tried it or like the sound of it. You can also tweet me or by all means, come say hi on my Instagram.
