Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner Ivy Shimmer Ink 14~Review and swatches

Hey girls, I’m back with a review on a gel eyeliner that is very close to my heart and it is the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in the shade Ivy Shimmer Ink 14. Curious to know how it fares?? Hop in!


Product Description: A true original. This award-winning longwearing 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.

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.

Price: 25 US $( 0.1 oz./ 3 g)


My experience with Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner Ivy Shimmer Ink 14: This gel eyeliner comes in a circular glass jar with a black plastic lid. A sticker with the description and shade name has been placed right below the jar. It comes with mini ultra thin eyeliner brush!

Color: All I can say about this is WOW! I always fall in love with green or blue eye products so this, of course is no exception. Ivy Shimmer Ink 14 is a rich deep/dark forest green in color with some amount of teal shimmer.


Pigmentation: Insanely pigmented as seen on the swatch below. This gel eyeliner sets within a minute so you need to work a little quicker before it sets to a rich matte finish. High opacity in one single swipe but it can be layered for a more dramatic look.

Texture: This gel is creamy in consistency that glides smoothly over my lids without any discomfort. The amazing formula delivers subtle to dramatic looks that are easy to apply, long wearing, and won’t smudge or fade. Although it contains some amount of shimmer, there is no gritty feeling and hardly any fallout.


Staying power: It stays on forever until you take it off completely. It doesn’t budge at all and is water resistant. A good makeup remover is recommended during removal.
