Product Review:Fanny Serrano Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black

7:36 AM

Hello again my dear dollies!
Here I am making a review again for you! During the past few days, I came to think that I shouldn't abandon my blog for a very long time without a review or an update, so I decided that I will do my best to make a review at least one review per week. So how does it sound? I really hope that's a good idea and I will do my best to kept that promise to you.  So for today's review, I will be reviewing my current favorite liner and my first ever gel/cream liner. So let me present to you my dollies the Fanny Serrano Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black




I got this liner for a really long time now. If I am not mistaken, I think I bought this last October and been using it till now. So for the product description.


PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:
A gel-based liquid eyeliner that's soft on the lids and rich in definition.


DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Use an eyeshadow brush and gently apply color over your lids and blend.


For the ingredients of the product, please see the picture below

So let's start the review for the packaging. The product was packaged at a small black box that looks elegant and not cheap looking. The product itself comes in a frosted 4ml glass jar with a black lid. (To show that it is black. 4ml is really a lot for a gel liner and I think this is one of the largest gel liner that I have seen and this will really last you for such a long time. Maybe a year or two.I believe that this also comes in brown and it has a brown lid) at the side of the glass jar is the Fanny Serrano logo and the name of the product as seen in the picture above. You should be careful though not to drop this because I think that it will break so better be careful.  I love that the product is sealed properly as shown in the image below.

Now let's go to the product itself.
I read on some blog that the first Gel Liner of Fanny Serrano is not that really good so it's been phased out for a while and had their sweet comeback with a new formulation. This product that I have bought is already the new one and I'm so glad that I did bought this and read a review on how amazing the new Fanny Serrano Gel Liner is. Some beauty blogger said that the old formula is not that really good which they said is not that creamy and dried so fast. But with the new formula, It's the counterpart. It is now so creamy and doesn't dry easily in it's jar.



See how creamy it is? It's been 3 months already and it is still so creamy like it is still new. What I love about this product is it glides easily on the lids and it is very newbie friendly. The color is not that jet black but it is a really good black. Since that this is my first time using a gel liner, I find this product very easy to use than a liquid liner. Even though that you are not really good in applying liner on your lids, you can still do so with this product and can be a good practice when lining your eyes. I am using Etude House's Oblique Brush which is a really good brush and will make a review on my future post. The SA said that you can also use this as an eyeshadow but I'm not really a fan of cream eyeshadows. Since that this is my first gel liner, I can't really compare it with other high end gel liners like Mac's Blacktrack gel liner and Bobbie Brown's gel eyeliner. But I read on some blogs that this product is already as good as the two gel liners mentioned earlier.

Now it's swatch time!

See how creamy it is? You can also easily control on how thick or thin the line you wanted it to be. The downside of this product is that you need to wait for a short second for the product to completely dry to avoid transferring the product to your lids. After it completely dries, I tried to rub my hands to see if it will smudge.


Sure enough it smudge but only a little. Mind you I rubbed my hands as light as possible and it had little smudges and when rubbed real hard this is what happens. But I guess you won't be rubbing your eyes that hard hehe so you can avoid raccoon eyes.  The product is also not waterproof so don't use this if you will go for a swim hehe  What is good about this product is that it is really a long wear gel eyeliner. I used this for a day and the liner stay intact without flaking and smudges but if the weather is really hot where I tend to get really oily, it smudges a little. I sure wish that the weather here in the Philippines is not that really hot. Other than that, this is a really good product worth trying if you are in a budget like me.
