Marlena, the gorgeous artist and creator of the Makeup Geek website, was one of the first beauty bloggers and a true innovator in the field. The BIZ has long admired Marlena and her work and now her cosmetics line is earning our love as well.

Read on to find out what Lisa and Marcia think about Marlena’s Gel Eyeliners!

Lisa’s Side:

There are so many gel liners out there, why buy the ones from Makeup Geek? I think there are three reasons:

1.  The price – these are so affordable.  3G / 0.1 oz for $7.99. Compared to my other favorites from Bobbi Brown ($23 for the same size) and MAC ($16 for the same size), these are much easier on my pocketbook.

2.  The colors – they are different, vibrant, fabulous.

3.  These gel liners WORK on the waterline. They go on easily, and they stay!!

Electric

Electric

Electric is a bright royal blue with no shimmer at all. This is absolutely stunning on brown eyes!! I especially love it on the waterline.

Mystic

Mystic

Mystic is a light emerald green with metallic gold shimmer. This is stunning as a lid liner, especially if you smudge it out a bit.

Fame

Fame

Fame is a dark navy teal with shimmer. It is truly unique and just gorgeous.

Marcia’s Side:

While Lisa showed you the gorgeous bright colors I’m going to showcase more “normal” colors from the line. The ones you’d want to wear day in and day out. Like my blog partner, I’m totally impressed with these liners. They glide on yet they last better than just about any other gel liner I’ve tried. You just can’t find this kind of quality at this price elsewhere.

Twinkle, Mobster and Rave

Twinkle, Mobster and Rave

My trio of delights contains Twinkle, Mobster and Rave.

Twinkle

Twinkle

Twinkle

Twinkle

TWINKLE is a beautiful charcoal with just a touch of shimmer to the look. Many charcoal shades show up too black but Makeup Geek’s Twinkle has a pretty radiance and a true gray color.

Mobster

Mobster

MOBSTER is a matte brown. It’s the workhorse of the bunch. I wear a lot of brown on my eyes and I find that Mobster works with everything.

Rave

Rave

I have to rave about RAVE. Just look at that color. How many times have you seen a taupe eyeliner? The only one I can think of was a Chanel pencil that was 4 times the cost of Rave. There’s a complexity to it that I love. It’s great for my bottom lashline too since it has a lightness to it that’s terrific. Here’s another shot just in case …

You can’t go wrong with Makeup Geek Gel Liners. Whether you want the bright shades like Lisa’s or the staid shades like Marcia’s you’ll end up with long lasting liners that go on smoothly in very rich shades. It’s a win-win situation.

    @Tina, the gel liners are fabulous. Even though I’m the staid type I think I need Mystic myself.

    @Mina, Twinkle is the best gray I’ve had in a gel liner. The next time I order from Makeup Geek I’m getting Mystic for myself. Marcia
