Double Wear Stay-in-Place Gel Eyeliner
Lauder’s Double Wear products rarely disappoint, and this long-wearing gel eyeliner is no exception. In a word, it’s fantastic. The creamy texture glides on without clumping and you have plenty of time to blend before it sets in place for its all-day (really) finish.
The colors go on boldly and include classic and trendy options. Watch out for the occasional bright blue and green shades, at least if you want a classic eye design rather than a shocking pop of color.
As with all long-wearing gel eyeliners, this requires a good makeup remover when you’re ready to take it off.
- Creamy gel texture goes on super smooth and creates an even line.
- Ample amount of time for blending before the eyeliner sets.
- Richly pigmented colors go on soft or dramatic depending on how you layer them.
- Doesn’t cake, flake, or clump.
- Flexibility to create a thin, precise line or a bold, thick line.
- Lasts throughout the day.
- The included brush works in a pinch, but an angled or thin liner brush allows for more precise application.
- A bit on the expensive side, but not too much when compared with similar products.
Estee Lauder At-A-Glance
The history of Estee Lauder goes back to 1946, when the woman who created the brand (and for whom it is named) began selling creams and lotions made by her chemist uncle. From its humble beginnings, Estee Lauder has grown to become a multibillion-dollar company whose products are sold all over the world and advertised in just about every fashion and women's lifestyle magazine available.
The biggest compliment we can pay to the venerable Estee Lauder line is that their moisturizers and serums can largely be described as state-of-the-art. Though fragrance is often intrusive, but when it comes to formulary excellence culminating in products that give skin what it needs to function optimally, they are tough to beat.
When it comes to makeup, by and large the brand also exceeds expectations. Though there are some under-performing products (you can read more about them in our individual reviews), Lauder has a number of excellent options, most notably its lip colors.
