Product Review - MicaBeauty Gel Eyeliner

I received the MicaBeauty Gel Eyeliner as part of the Ipsy subscription. I ran out of my E.L.F. cream liner and decided to give this product a try and see how it compares.

The MicaBeauty Gel Eyeliner is actually very similar to the E.L.F. cream liner. It may be a tad superior in that it goes on a little smoother and has even more pigmentation.  Though I found that it was a bit harder to make a real skinny line with the MicaBeauty product vs. the E.L.F. liner.

If both products were the exact same price or comparable prices, I'd pick the MicaBeauty liner... but they are not. The E.L.F. cream liner retails at 3$ (can be found at Target) whereas the MicaBeauty liner is 35$. (So, yes, that was a nice value in the bag.)  So do I think that the increased smoothness of application and pigmentation are worth the extra 32$? No, I don't think so.

You may want to consider this product if, for some reason, the E.L.F. one doesn't exactly work for you. But then again, I'd recommend that you try the MAC Fluidline product first as it retails at 16$.  I just think that 35$ is rather expensive when it comes to an eyeliner. It's a good product but I think that you can find comparable results for a more reasonable price.
