Hourglass, Mechanical Gel Eye Liner, Obsidian Edge

Just in time for fall’s perfectly lined eye trend is the new Hourglass 1.5mm Mechanical Gel Eye Liner – an exceptionally thin, remarkably soft, and waterproof gel liner. You have never seen a liner like this one before. The advanced gel formula is encapsulated in a mechanical pencil, offering precision accuracy and ease of application. Unlike traditional gel liners, there’s no pot, no brush, and no clean-up required. It’s perfect for lining between the lashes, and it doesn’t budge. Seriously. The waterproof, transfer-proof and long-lasting formula delivers extended wear while the moisturizing properties help it glide on smoothly and dry quickly.

Two clicks are all you will need to line the eyes. It’s important to dispense product as needed because the mechanical pencil does not retract and there are approximately 17 to 20 uses in each pencil. Therefore you have the option of buying a package of 3 or you can buy them individually at select retailers (Sephora and HourglassCosmetics.com). Oh and you have the choice of one color, Obsidian which is ultra black. For this kind of lining, it’s the only color you need.

Hourglass, 1.5mm Mechanical Gel Eye Liner

I first tested some on my hand and it did not come off easily! It really doesn’t budge. I have to admit, I am a bit of a moron when it comes to lining my eyes with black liner. I tend to stick to thick pencils or use a bit of wet eyeshadow because it’s easy to apply and hides mistakes well. However, this liner glides so effortlessly and makes such a tight, thin line…it was actually easy to use! To remove it from my eyes, makeup remover did the job. Phew.

Hourglass 1.5mm Mechanical Gel Eye Liner is free of phthalates, sulfates, talc and gluten and is not tested on animals.
